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.





As with all mechanical drives, you have a high performance side and a low performance side when reading and writing data. The average read performance for the 5K4000 is 106MB/s. The peak measured in this sequential test is 136.9MB/s; obviously the cache plays a role in determining that result. On the low end of the scale we achieved 62MB/s.




The write performance is almost identical to the read results we captured. The average and minimum are best used in determining performance. In the average category we hit 105MB/s and down low just 61.9MB/s.
