HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

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.

Intel's specifications had the read performance of all the 525 Series products really close to each other and we see that in our first sequential read test.

The sequential write performance was all over the place on the Intel specs, but we didn't find as much variation with the drives right out of the box and when using compressible data. As the drives fall out of FOB state the write speed decreases.
