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.
The Maingear Vybe's USB 2.0 implementation doesn't really offer any surprises. It's in the range of values that can be considered not statistically significant and performs roughly on par with the rest of the systems.
The Maingear pulls in numbers for USB 2.0 write that put it in second place behind the iBUYPOWER Valkyrie.
Moving to USB 3.0, however, the Maingear Vybe moves towards the back of the pack, coming in third out of four systems. It only manages to beat the iBUYPOWER Valkyrie, which performed terribly in the USB 3.0 read test.
For USB 3.0 write performance, the Maingear picks up its game and manages to come in second place behind the GIGABYTE laptop. Both feature nearly the same maximum, but the GIGABYTE system maintains that speed better and pulls out a higher average rate.
