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.

In HD Tune Pro we see the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G with the latest SandForce firmware outperforming everything else on the chart, including the Vertex 3 with firmware 2.6. The performance has also tightened up as well between the minimum and maximum speeds.

The write performance of this new revision of an already existing classic is also very good. The Toggle Mode flash paired with the new controller seems to be working very well together.
