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.

It looks like the Vertex 3 in its current form might have some competition from the Corsair Performance 3 when it comes to read speeds across the disk. The Vertex 3 had a significant drop in performance at the very beginning of the test and we were not able to get rid of this dip, and it only lasted a split second.

 

The average read speed was still a very impressive 302MB/s. HD Tune isn't a reliable way to determine real world performance, it's just a tool that helps us explain real world performance issues that can pop up.

The write speed across the Vertex 3 is remarkable. Here we observed over 380MB/s on average and a peak of 392.7MB/s.
