HDD Benchmarks: HD Tune Pro Read / Write

HD Tune Pro 3.5 Source: HD TUNE

HD Tune Pro is an extended version of HD Tune which includes many new features such as: write benchmark, secure erasing, AAM setting, folder usage view, disk monitor, command line parameters and file benchmark. The benchmark measures raw performance in a couple different ways to measure a hard drive for Read and Write tests, which are conducted separately. To read the results below consider that highest minimum/maximum/average transfer rates are better, while lower (quicker) access times are best. Lastly, highest burst rates are better.

Here we see the 2TB Seagate Backup Plus Slim external USB 3.0 drive performs at about the same pace: Burst Write speed is 130MB/s, Average Write speed is 89MB/s and access time is 171.3 ms. Clearly not record shattering compared to internal drives, but not out-of-the-ballpark-slow either.
