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.
The EON17-S performs nearly identically to its little brother. It performs towards the top of the tested systems in the USB 2.0 read test.
The EON17-S continues to perform slightly better than its smaller sibling. It performs towards the top of the systems tested, though the ASUS S56C Ultrabook absolutely dominates the USB 2.0 write test.
Moving to USB 3.0, the EON17-S comes in third place tied with the EON11-S.
USB 3.0 write performance is pretty good on the system. It comes in in third place, with the competition not too far behind. The GIGABYTE P2542G continues to hold the lead with nearly 30MB/s faster performance.
The EON17-S is also equipped with an eSATA port, unlike most systems we test. As you can see, it is in the middle of the pack and not too far behind the leader.
In write performance, the EON17-S falls further behind the leader, though it stays ahead of the iBUYPOWER Valkyrie.
