- 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.

It looks like the Hellcat system gets to take a back seat in the STR test and that the Opteron system is a hair faster. Both systems show the G-Monster V5 as being very fast and beating nearly all of the other drives shown on the chart.

 

Write Tests

The write test is where we really see the improvement to the performance numbers of the G-Monster V5 in a fast system. Here we see the V5 walking away from everyone.
