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

Even with just two drives, the HornetTek X2 performs very well in both RAID 0 and RAID 1. The RAID 1 numbers are nearly identical to what we would expect from a single drive attached to the motherboards native SATA II port.

 


Write Tests

The write numbers are also respectable, but we would have liked to have seen the RAID 0 numbers a little higher at peak.
