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 Phoenix Pro arrived in a used state so it had already lost its new drive shine before we even got started. Normally we use our testing to remove that luster. When compared to the Vertex 2 E 120GB drive we see the Phoenix Pro losing around 20MB/s of average speed. This is in line with what we see in our post review testing after the drive has been used.
In the STR write test we see the Phoenix Pro running at the same maximum speeds of the other SandForce drives, but the average and minimum are down a bit. This is also part of the used drive state. By the time we get to the real world tests all of the drives will be in the same condition.
