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 it comes to single command, sequential read performance the SF-2281 with synchronous flash still can't be beaten. Even with the older, slower firmware and the high-density flash penalty the Vertex 3 is the star of the chart for this particular task.




The Vertex 4 has already caught the V3 in sequential write speed in the high capacity size. The other drives just sort of fade away into the background.
