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.
A fair fight; well, not exactly. For comparisons we chose Western Digital and Seagate's 7,200 RPM 2TB drives thinking the high density of the Caviar Green would be able to cut deep into their performance. In the read tests across the drive we found that the Caviar Green 3TB came very close to the performance of the higher rated drives, but wasn't able to outperform these highly rated drives.
The same held true for the write speeds. Here we found the Caviar Green performing very close to the 7,200 RPM drives, but the density wasn't enough to put it over the top.
Even though the Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB wasn't outperforming the two 7,200 RPM drives, it was running right up there with them in this synthetic test.
