HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

When it comes to single command, sequential read performance the SF-2281 with synchronous flash still can't be beaten. Even with the older, slower firmware and the high-density flash penalty the Vertex 3 is the star of the chart for this particular task.

The Vertex 4 has already caught the V3 in sequential write speed in the high capacity size. The other drives just sort of fade away into the background.
