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





As we've already stated, the Plextor 128GB drives are good. Here we see the sequential read performance and it averaged over 450MB/s.




The sequential write performance emerged at 322MB/s with the minimum and maximum close to the same range.



HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes




Here we see a trace right after a controlled set of random writes to the drive. The read performance stayed fairly steady, but the write speed was all over the place. The write performance was also higher than the read performance.
