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


Benchmark: measures the performance

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



Read Tests




Here we see that the performance increased by a sizable margin with the 1819 firmware. 1918 lowered overall read performance by a small margin, but added onboard garbage collection so you will reach the highest levels of performance faster as regeneration occurs faster from a wear state.


Write Tests




The write performance has increased steadily through the firmware revisions. Here we see that the 1916 writes even faster than the 1819.
