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.





This is the last time you'll see this format on our performance charts. The Crucial m4 drives are being replaced and the Plextor M3 Pros will gain residency.


The Marvell controller has never had a problem with sequential read performance and that is also true with the M3 Pro 128GB drive.




Write performance either sequentially or while random has kept the Marvell controller back. The M3 Pro doesn't let old stereotypes get in the way of delivering very good performance in this test. Oh how far they've come too, the M3 Pro 128GB doubles the average sequential write speed of the Crucial m4 128GB.
