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.





Presenting the drive with a sequential workload across the capacity of the drive, we see the Laptop Thin SSHD peak at 111.8MB/s and gradually slow to a final resting place at 46.6MB/s, with average read at 89MB/s.




HD Tune write testing showed the SSHD comparable to previous Hybrid drives from Seagate. When everything was said and done, we ended up with 112MB/s at its peak and a 54MB/s average.
