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.




Having a look at HD Tune Pro, you can see that once we went past that four drive setup we didn't really see a difference in overall performance. You can see moving from one to two and two to four, though, it brings with it some really nice performance gains as we move up further and further.




We can see that Access Time drops ever so slightly as we move up, while CPU load jumps a little. There's such a small difference between the numbers, though, that it doesn't really matter and the important numbers are ultimately seen in the transfer rates.
