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.

 

 

Read Tests

We expected the Intel X25-M to read quite a bit faster than the other MLC drives, but I must admit that doubling the speed of Samsungs/G.Skill SLC drive caught me off guard. The Intel MLC actually reads faster than the new Seagate 15K.6 SAS drive.

 

Write Tests

Write speed is where we see the Intel drive take a back seat to some of the other MLC drives, but only in maximum speed. Minimum write speed is where we see the biggest difference between the MLC drives; the Intel MLC drive does not take a nose dive at any point in the test.
