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

Right off the top we see that the X2-256 is around 6.2 MB/s faster than the X2-128. Unfortunately that still leaves it around 20MB/s slower than the Intel X25-M, the drive we are trying to knock off the top. The X2-256 is still the second fastest drive we have tested to date and it is more than double the capacity of the X25-M we tested a few months back.

 

Write Tests

Our write speed test is complicated no matter which drive you compare the X2-256 against. Both of the Solidata X2 drives reign supreme when it comes to peak bandwidth. The 256GB model is able to move data on average faster than the X25-M, but the minimum transmission hurts the drive in the long run.
