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 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

As you can see, the read speeds truly double in RAID 0 with a pair of A-DATA S599s. Things start out a bit slower, but reach peak and hold fairly steady across the array. This is exactly what we like to see with RAID 0 arrays.


Write Tests

Setting up your array is critical to achieving results like these, but once you get everything dialed in the average write speed of around 525MB/s makes it all worthwhile.
