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.
We have our standard cast of characters lined up for this review and added the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G to the mix since it was the fastest SSD we've tested to date thanks to a firmware update from SandForce. The Kingston HyperX has even newer firmware and as you can see here, SandForce and Kingston have made the SF-2281 controller paired with synchronous flash even faster. So far this is the fastest single drive we've tested when measuring read speed across the drive.
The write speed across the drive was also impressive, the fastest recorded so far.
