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 Seagate Savvio 10K.3 has a higher maximum STR speed than the VelociRaptor, but when it comes to the average both drives are nearly identical. The problem is the VelociRaptor is able to transfer data faster at the end of the stroke where hard drives are slower to their worst performance.

 


Write Tests

The write speed tests are almost identical with the Seagate Savvio 10K.3 doing well at the start but finishing poorly. Once again the VelociRaptor hits nearly identical at the average mark.
