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.
This is the first article we have published of a drive with MP2 but I also have two other drives in for testing. All three drives appear to lose some read speed to the Vertex 2 MP(1) drives in this synthetic test.
Some of the synthetic tests also show a reduction in write speeds with MP2 and the performance loss is visible in HD Tune.
