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.

Reading across the drive we see good solid read performance when the drive is in a new state. The minimum, average and maximum speeds are very close together with an average speed of 422.5MB/s. This is one of the highest read speeds we've recorded with a single 2.5" SSD.

As you may know smaller traditional SSDs, those with a DRAM cache aiding the write cycle are slower than the larger drives. Here we see the Performance Pro 128GB keeping the write performance tidy, but it is quite a bit slower than the Vertex 3 120GB drive with a SandForce SF-2281 controller.
