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.

When it comes to raw read speed across the drive we see the new VR200M reading close to 30MB/s faster than the first generation VelociRaptor (VR150M) in the average category. Minimum and maximum both show nice performance boosts as well.

The raw write tests also show a nice performance boost from the previous generation VelociRaptor. It is safe to say that the new VelociRaptor gives us an across the board performance increase.
