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.

Holy cow! Under HD Tune Pro we see a maximum read speed of 1237MB/s and even the average speed is not too far behind that.

Here is where the Crucial C300 setup really sets itself apart from the SATA 2.0 X25-E drives. We can see a maximum write speed of a really stunning 967MB/s and the average is still extremely healthy at 883MB/s.

 

When we consider the average write speed, the C300 setup is about 55% faster.
