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 gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.





Sequential read performance when working with compressible data has never been an issue with drives using LSI SandForce controllers. Even drives with low cost asynchronous NAND do well here and so does the Monster Digital Daytona 240GB.




Sequential write performance with compressible data is also a strong point for SF based drives.



HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes




Here we see sequential reads and writes after heavy random writes. The Daytona still manages to read 128K sequential data at 358MB/s and write the same data at 319MB/s average.
