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.

HD Tune has never been too kind to RAID arrays since it tests at a single queue depth. SandForce controllers love high queue lengths and the RevoDrive 3 X2 uses four of them.

The same is true for the write test. The low queue depth really hurts performance and doesn't allow the RevoDrive 3 X2 to really take flight.
