HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

- Benchmark: measures the performance
- Info: shows detailed information
- Health: checks the health status by using SMART
- Error Scan: scans the surface for errors
- Temperature display

 

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.

 

 


Read Tests

Right from the start we see the performance hit in the synthetic STR benchmark by moving to SATA 3G, but as you can see it just pulls the Crucial C300 back down to the same levels as the fastest SATA 3G drives.

 


Write Tests

The write test shows the Intel ICH SATA 3G doing exactly what we were expecting, running just a little faster, but the very slight performance increase doesn't appear to be enough to make you want to run your C300 on SATA 3G if given the option.
