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.
In read testing the Desktop .15 did quite well, with a maximum read speed of 168MB/s. Moving down through the chart notice the 2TB Barracuda, this drive uses the same 625GB/sq. in as the Desktop .15 we are looking at today, but carries a 7200RPM spindle speed.
Write testing was equally impressive with the Desktop HDD pushing close to 165MB/s.
