HD Tune v3.50
HD Tune Pro 3.50 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.
Benchmark Results: The Kingston SSDNow V+ Series 128GB drive does better in HD Tune Pro 3.50 in both the read test and the write test. The spikes in the write benchmark look strange, but the average is 166.7MB/s, which is just shy of the drive's 180MB/s rating. The average read speed was found to be 200.5MB/s. The read test had an access time of 0.1ms, while the write test was 0.5ms.
Comparison Chart: When comparing the Kingston SSDNow V+ Series 128GB SSD to the other drives that we have tested it does great when it comes to read and write speeds, but the write random access times are actually the highest we have seen on any drive.
64MB File Test
Benchmark Results: Running the built-in file benchmark test in HD Tune showed once again just how the drive performs with various file sizes. This test shows the Kingston SSDNow V+ Series 128GB SSD Drive topping out at nearly 220MB/sec in the read test and 160MB/sec in the write test.
