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

In our read test we see that the Kingston SSDNow V+ runs right around the same level as the Indilinx Barefoot drives at the bottom of the chart. The Patriot Torqx M28 uses a Samsung controller like the first generation V+ Series drives and is also comparable in this synthetic test.

 


Write Tests

The write portion of this test shows the V+ Series drive mixing it up with the Barefoot drives ones again. Its 177MB/s average write speed is not that far behind the new Crucial RealSSD C300. Could the second generation V+ Series be a contender for the fastest drive of 2010?
