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.





Despite its single platter design the Hitachi Z5K320 holds itself quite well against the higher priced competition that we paired it with for this review. The only other 5,400 drive in this round-up style result list is the Western Digital Scorpio Blue.




Just like the Read test, the Z5K320 just didn't have enough to match the higher spec drives, but it did run very close to despite its single platter disadvantage.
