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.
The read speeds for both of the Vertex 2 drives remain the same and both hold a very tight line across the graph.
In the write speed tests things worked out a little differently and we saw a little more fluctuation with the new Vertex 2 E. This led to a 10MB/s drop in average write speed, but the maximum remained the same for both.
