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.





When reading sequential data we don't expect to see much difference between these two drives and HD Tune Pro confirmed that line of thought. Even though we don't see too much difference between the two Neutron SSDs, they are much different than everything else in our chart.


HD Tune uses compressible data, the type of data that the SandForce architecture dominates, well, used to dominate because the new LAMD Amber is here now.




The variation when writing sequential data for the Neutron 240GB drives is less than 100MB/s. The SandForce based drives in our chart split down the middle between the two Neutrons, but the OCZ Vertex 4 256GB takes the top write speed in this test.
