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.

The Octane 128GB and 256GB drives received a sequential performance improvement with the new update, but the other drives only received an increase in 4KB random write performance. Because of that we don't expect to see any big improvements in the sequential tests like those run in HD Tune.

Both the read and write sequential tests stayed about the same. The new updated slowed the speed down just a little, but for the most part performance was identical.
