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.





The ADATA S511 240GB produced a nice read performance graph with very little variation in the performance across the drive. We achieved an average read speed of just over 413MB/s, a score that nearly matched the fastest drive on our charts.




The S511 240GB also performed very well in the HD Tune Pro Write Test. The performance had a few peaks and valleys, but the average score was 406MB/s with a peak of 436.7. The low point measured was 395MB/s which is still very fast even for a SandForce SF-2281 controlled drive.
