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

There was no doubt that the Crucial RealSSD C300 would blaze past the limits of SATA II. Here we see the fastest solid state drive on the market blasting past the competition.

 


Write Tests

The write speed is another story. Here we see several Indilinx Barefoot drives putting up higher numbers. The minimum write speed of the C300 looks really low in the graph, but there were just a few spots on the drive where it would dip in performance. Later in the review we will show the full graph.
