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.

Here we see the HD Tune performance numbers and how the 64GB Falcon II compares to other manufacturers drives. Here we can see how the new firmware affects the Falcon II when compared to the OCZ Agility. The amount of flash, 64GB of the Falcon II also comes into play here.

 

Write Tests

The 64GB Falcon II shows a larger deficit in write performance due to the size of the drive in the HD Tune write test. Still, synthetic numbers mean little when inside of a Windows environment. Let's move along.
