HD Tune Pro
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.
I have to admit that I am fascinated with running different drives on different controllers to see how certain combinations work better than others. Here we see that the controller really doesn't play much of a roll in the read STR speeds. Looking at the averages it appears that the Caviar Black has a higher minimum speed, but loses out to the Barracuda XT in both average and maximum. The numbers are so close together that a consumer will never notice the difference.
The STR write test gives us the exact same results, the Caviar Black is able to retain its performance better at the end of the run, but the middle and high end go to the Barracuda XT.
