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

The G-Monster - PROMISE PCIe SSD is faster than the other drives we have tested recently in the STR test and it should be. The problem is that we are running four drives in RAID 0 and are seeing less than 2x the performance.

 

Write Tests

The write test is impressive as well on the surface, but just like the read test we were expecting to see a little more oomph from the array.
