HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

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 SandForce SF-1200 is a SATA Ii controller while the Marvell controller in the two Crucial drives is SATA III. Here we see the Crucial drives taking advantage of their additional headroom and faster than anything else. The Corsair Force is holding its own against the other SF-1200 controlled drives and Intel X25-M.

 

Write Tests

When it comes to write speeds the Corsair Force is able to put up the highest average write across the drive in those presented today. The similar capacity Crucial C300 (128GB) has an issue that doesn't allow it to write data faster than around 130MB/s in this test. As if that weren't bad enough, the Intel X25-M has an even lower limit that keeps it from reaching much above 80MB/s.
