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 read performance across the drive looks very good and is comparable to the two SandForce 1500 drives we have tested so far. The Crucial RealSSD C300 still takes the crown here, but only because it uses the new SATA 6G standard.

 


Write Tests

The write speed numbers are equally as impressive and produced a nice flat response all the way across the drive once a small hiccup passed in the first 30MB of the test. The dip didn't break below 190 MB/s. The Crucial C300 couldn't keep up with the write speeds of the Corsair Force.
