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 data access pattern shown in HD Tune Pro shows that the drive is very fast at reading data.

 

Write Tests

Here we see the drive showing the same results that we were getting from 2.5" MLC SSDs 6 months ago. These are very good results for a portable drive when compared to standard USB thumb drives.
