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.





In HD Tune Pro we're looking at sequential reads. The SanDisk Extreme has an average speed of 410MB/s and with TRIM working the graph is steady with little variation in the speed. The Plextor only achieves an average sequential read of 384MB/s, also with a steady line on the graph.




The sequential write results were 408MB/s average with the Extreme and 327MB/s on with the M3 Pro. This is a fairly big difference, but one that we expected from the specifications sheet.
