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.

Using HD Tune Pro we measured the sequential read speed of the BP3 256GB at 335MB/s average with compressible data. Later in this review we'll look at incompressible data performance and see how the BP3 compares to the SandForce based SMART drive.

Even after a secure erase cycle I was not able to get the BP3 to produce a clean line across the drive in the write test. This tells us a couple of things, the BP3 could use a larger buffer and the write speed of the Phison S8 with the early firmware could use a performance boost as well. Hopefully these issues are addressed in the new firmware which is due out in July from what we've been told.
