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 STR numbers look very good, but when compared to the latest Indilinx Barefoot controlled drives these numbers seem a little lame. This isn't the first time we observed low HD Tune numbers, but saw high real world performance; remember the Fusion-io ioDrive results.


Write Tests




The write sustained numbers are a lot like the early firmware we tested on the Indilinx Barefoot controller around a year ago. As of now the Pro V has several peaks on the benchmark graph, but the low end is pretty steady. We should see these even out as the firmware progresses.
