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

Temperature Display

 

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write, and access time results. For the last couple of years, it has gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must-have application for storage device testing.

With incompressible data, the 530 Series performs well with sequential data. It's even a hair faster than the 520 Series 240GB.

This test uses incompressible data; later in the review we'll see the sequential performance with incompressible data. Again, the 530 Series 240GB performs very well in HD Tune Pro.

 

HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes

After a responsible number of random writes to the drive, we ran HD Tach to see 128KB sequential performance after random writes. In this test, we start to see the 530 wearing down to a consumer steady state.
