HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

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.

Several of the synthetic benchmarks use the 'on the surface' testing approach, so you'll have to hang tight until we get to our custom tests that show what's happening. We use these synthetics to get some general performance information. When it comes to reading across the drive, the Agility 3 240GB performs at the same level as the Vertex 3.

Writing data across the drive gives us the same conclusion, the Agility 3 is very fast when writing data to the drive, around the same performance as the Vertex 3 240GB.
