HD Tune Pro
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.
This test was dominated by the Crucial RealSSD C300 256GB drive with its SATA 6G interface that allows it to break through SATA II limitations, but here we see that the new Intel driver has allowed the SandForce controlled A-DATA S599 to make some ground on the C300.
The write tests in HD Tune show us that instead of trailing the C300 in write speed, the S599 is able to outperform the ultra fast 256GB C300. It has been reported that the 128GB C300 has lower write speeds so it is safe to say that when compared dollar to dollar spent that the S599 has a significant edge over the 128GB C300. We are hoping to be able to get in a 128GB C300 to see if the accusations are based on truth.
