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

- 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.
In our charts today the Agility 2 240GB and Vertex 2 240GB will be next to each other. In STR read speed we see the two drives perform nearly identical. The Agility 2 is actually a little faster than the Vertex 2 when it came to the minimum speed but we have noticed from time to time that Windows caching is able to slow a drive down for a millisecond when the test starts giving this false reading.
When comparing the two drives 240GB drives the same thing we observed in the read speed is also observed with the write speeds. The SandForce drives dominate the write speed tests as you can see in this chart. The Crucial RealSSD C300 did have a higher read speed since it uses SATA 6Gbps but when it came to the write speeds the SandForce drives are a bit faster.
