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.





There are some big hitters in the benchmark group today, most of which are 7,200 RPM drives. The Western Digital Scorpio Black is able to outperform all of them by over 10MB/s in the average test and nearly 20MB/s in the maximum performance category.




The sustained write speeds across the platters is just as impressive as the read speeds. Here we see the Scorpio Black running a full 12MB/s faster in the average speed result.
