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.

It quickly became apparent when we started testing the drive that this particular drive had been ran hard before we received it. No amount of TRIM or secure erase allowed us to get rid of a dip in performance that kept occurring at the start of this test. The dip that reached as low as 124 MB/s just wouldn't go away and it brought the average read score down with it.

The same area gave us issues when writing data across the drive. This time the dip lasted much longer and brought the average score down quite a bit more.
