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.
Starting with a clean drive we ran HD Tune Pro that measures read speed across the drive. The Transcend SSD720 averaged 426.6MB/s and a minimum speed of 411.5MB/s.
The average write speed recorded was 409.3MB/s, but in this test, the write speed dipped down to 391MB/s.
