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

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.

 

 

Read Tests

The Crucial CT32GBFAB0 was quite a bit quicker than the G.Skill SLC drive in the STR Read test. If you have already read the Crucial review, you'll know this doesn't exactly carry over to real world performance.

 

Write Tests

In write speed the G.Skill was able to keep up with the fast platter based drive and put a hurting on the Crucial SLC drive. In the all important minimum write speed the G.Skill drive showed its dominance against all competitors.
