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

Every drive listed on out chart for this round has an Indilinx Barefoot controller on board, other than the Patriot Torqx M28. The PhotoFast V5 is a RAID 0 product and the V4s uses SLC flash. The direct competitors to the OCZ Agility are the Crucial M225 and Transcend Ultra.

 

The STR read speeds of OCZ's mainstream SSD are comparable to the products of the competitors' high end flagship models.

 


Write Tests

The STR write speed of the Ultra is a little faster than the OCZ Agility in maximum and average speeds, but the numbers are not too far from each other.
