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 gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.
All of the Crucial M500 capacity sizes do really well in the sequential read tests. The 480GB model averages 454MB/s in HD Tune Pro. This is actually really good performance and it's difficult to pull much more out of SATA III.
All good things have to end though. The HD Tune Pro sequential write performance with a block size of 64KB shows the write performance falling well below the 430MB/s we achieved in ATTO.
HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes
After a consumer level of random writes, we see the sequential read and write performance with 128KB blocks. The average read is down to 200MB/s, and the average write isn't much better at 227MB/s.
