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.

Looking at sequential performance a difference way, it's no surprise the BP4 achieves a higher peak sequential read rate.

With ATTO we see different sized writes, but in HD Tune Pro we write to the entire span of the drive. This tells us a different story and not one that I expected to see. The BP4 keeps a much tighter group in the first write test across the span of the drive.

HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes

It may seem excessive until we look at the results, but this is the third sequential write test. This test runs after a number of random writes to the drive. We learned in this test that write performance can dip to less than 50MB/s.
