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 allows us, through synthetics, to gauge the drives read and write performance. In the last few years this benchmark has gained wide acceptance in the industry and is now considered a must have application for storage testing.
Throughout read testing the 7K1000 arrived at a low of 65.6MB/s. The average read speed was impressive at 103MB/s, and peaking at 132MB/s.
Flipping the switch over to write testing we find the 7K1000 leading the charts once again. The drive, again impressive, peaked at 129MB/s, with the low point reading 60MB/s.
