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

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.





The HD Tune Pro numbers verify what we observed in ATTO, the Pyro SE is a speedy little drive with a great deal of performance. While reading across the drive we averaged around 410MB/s. The group was very tight as well with just a small amount of deviation in the plot line.




The write test across the drive was just as impressive with an average write speed of around 403MB/s. The plot line was a little wavier this time around but still stayed within 40MB/s from minimum to peak performance.
