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.





When reading across the drive, we see that the Torqx 2 isn't a contender to the 2011 drives, but fits in closer to last year's models represented on our charts by the Vertex 2. The read access in the drive test shows the Torqx 2 is comparable in this synthetic test.




When writing across the drive, the Torqx 2 isn't as fast as the Vertex 2.
