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
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.
HD Tune Pro reads and writes sequential data to the drive. This allows us to measure fresh out of box performance first off and also start to move the drive into steady state. In the read portion of the test we measured the Transcend SSD320 256GB at 413MB/s average sequential read with a maximum of 421.7MB/s and a minimum of 409MB/s. This is a very tight group on the graph and an impressive result for any SSD.
As you write data to the drive you start to lose that 'new drive performance'. It the same thing that happens when you let you kids eat in your new car, it's just never the same after... well, until you secure erase the drive or take the car to a detailer.
In this test we recorded an average write speed of 414MB/s with a maximum of 442MB/s (!) and 394MB/s minimum. The maximum speed is very good and a result we don't see too often.
