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.
The MDSSD BP4's massive sequential speed comes through in our first test. At just over 471MB/s, the BP4 240GB outperforms every other mSATA drive in early fresh state sequential read testing.
As soon as you start writing data to the BP4 mSATA, the write speed inconsistencies show their head. It's quite odd to have a drive kick so much ass reading data and then quickly drop off while writing data.
The BP4 runs in four-channel mode in the mSATA configuration (2.5" uses all 8 channels), like most other mSATA SSDs on the market today.
