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

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 it comes to read speeds across the drive, we see a nice steady line of performance. The S596 Turbo maxes out at 210.5 MB/s. It is rare to see the HD Tune read speed match the ATTO speed.

The write speeds were a little bumpy, but that is not uncommon with the drives we are seeing these days.
