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.





Even though the ATTO performance was nearly the same as the other SandForce drives, we are starting to see some difference with HD Tune. Here we see an average read speed of 107.4MB/s, less than half of the full spec 120GB SandForce drives. I really wasn't expecting to see such a large performance drop in the read speeds.




The write tests are where all other 40GB SSDs take a nose dive and become all but unusable if you are doing anything with your PC other than Facebook updates. The Corsair Force F40 once again loses nearly half of its performance from the full tilt SF-1200 drives, but the speeds are much higher than those from Intel.
