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.

When going back to find products we have on hand to compare to the WD VelociRaptor I was surprised to see how thin our portfolio was. Still, we have some very good products on hand to give the Raptor a run for the benchmark crown.

 

The newest entry to the Raptor family is a very good performer and the first mechanical drive we've ever tested that doesn't dip below 100MB/s in the sequential read and write test.

The writes and reads nearly mimic each other in HD Tune Pro and also HD Tach.
