HD Tune Pro
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.
When it comes to using a USB 2.0 external enclosure, we are capped at read speeds of right around 35MB/s and the SimpleTOUGH is no exception. Here we see the drive performing as well as possible under USB 2.0.
Write speeds under USB 2.0 are limited to around 32MB/s and here we see the SimpleTOUGH doing a very good job of maximizing the bus.
