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.
While reading data across the KingFast F3 Plus 240GB we achieved an average speed of 421.5MB/s. The chart plot was very straight, one of the cleanest lines we've seen with FW 5.0.4 so far.
We can't say the same about the sequential write graph because there was a dip around the 70% mark in the run. The dip decreased the average score to 409MB/s but aside from that we were really close to a run with an average write speed in the 430MB/s range.
