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.





On both the ASUS SAS and LSI 9260-8i the SMART Modular is quite a bit slower than the consumer Vertex 2 drives in sequential reading across the drive.




The write speeds are a little slower than the read speeds with both system configurations, but it is important to remember that the XceedIOPS is built for high IO transactions and not for sequential reading and writing.
