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 LSI 9280-8E gave us solid numbers in both RAID 0 and RAID 5 tests. As you can see, there wasn't a large variation in the minimum and maximum transfer speeds.

 


Write Tests

The write performance across the LSI controller and array of 15K.7 drives was very impressive. As you can see, the write speed of the 9280-8E is quite a bit faster than the ARC-1680X in both RAID 0 and RAID 5.
