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 holds a steady performance line across the drive, but there were three quick dips where the drive slowed to just over 162 MB/s.




The write test across the drive was a different story. Here the actual performance was right around 140MB/s and the spikes were up both directions. On the low side the Phoenix dipped just five times and all were around 120 MB/s. At the high end the Phoenix Pro peaked around 25 times and reached 218 MB/s.
