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 certainly looks like the SF-2282 with 24 flash chips is bringing the read speeds we wanted to see. The GT 180 is leading in all three categories, maximum, average and minimum on our chart that includes the new Plextor M3 Pro drives.

The same is true for the write speeds where the GT 180 is looking like it could take flight. These tests are with compressible data though where performance is never an issue with SandForce based drives.
