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 GIGABYTE U2442F's USB 2.0 implementation doesn't really offer any surprises. It runs in a similar range as the other comparison systems and averages out to be towards the bottom, but not by much.
Again, nothing exactly surprising or exciting happening with the U2442F's USB2.0 write performance. The system manages an average of 20.9MB/s, which is again towards the end of the pack, but not by a lot.
Moving to USB 3.0, however, the GIGABYTE U2442F starts to fall behind. While not the slowest we have tested, it's pretty close to it and is over 20MB/s slower than the fastest unit we have tested.
When it comes to write performance, the GIGABYTE U2442F continues the trend. It produces a write speed of 94.7MB/s, which is the slowest tested so far. It's just more than half as fast as the fastest unit we've tested, the GIGABYTE P2542G.
