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.





We included the Plextor M3 in our charts for today and also reordered the archive results to place all of the Plextor drives at the top. In the sequential real test across the drives we found the new M5S a little slower on average when compared with the M3 class of drives with Toshiba flash.
