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.

A large portion of the speed from the MemoRight MS-701 240GB can be attributed to the firmware on the drive. MemoRight lists it as 1.3.3, but in SandForce terminology that should be 3.3, one of the most stable releases to come out of the SandForce lab. In our charts today we also have another SATA III mSATA drive with a SandForce FSP, the RunCore T50 120GB drive. The new firmware found on the MemoRight MS-701 produces a much better read performance graph when reading across the drive.

The write speed is much better on the MS-701 240GB. Here we see an average sequential write of compressible data at 407MB/s. The MS-701 isn't just a fast mSATA drive; it would hold its own against the current crop of 2.5" form factor drives!
