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

Once you get into numbers this high, synthetic benchmarks don't really cut it anymore and they start to lose their value with what to expect in real world applications. Here we see Areca's well known RAID 0 performance; this is what put them on the map with enthusiasts. The iStorage Pro iT8SAE performs well in all of the tests shown.

 


Write Tests

The write tests are a mixed bag; the Areca controller shows us slower numbers than the Read test, but the LSI is faster.
