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

As we mentioned in the specifications, the Solo uses USB 2.0 so we didn't really expect to find blazing performance. The Solo does score some of the highest numbers possible from USB, but I would have liked to have seen a dual interface design with both USB and eSATA.

 


Write Tests

The same holds true for the write speeds; this is pretty much the limit for USB until USB 3 products are released next year.
