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.





I don't think read speed will be an issue for any users looking at the Octane for their operating system drive. The Octane performs very well when reading data back as well can see here in this benchmark designed to test across the flash performance.




The write speed is solid across the drive with an average write speed of close to 190MB/s. Most users read more data back than they do write data after all of their programs are installed and the system is setup to their liking. The main issue is that the Octane lags behind several other lower cost drives that are on the market today.
