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 gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.
We found a dip about 70% through the test where the performance went down to 356MB/s. The average sequential read speed was 411MB/s and the maximum was just over 420MB/s.
When it comes to the average write speed, very little on the market can compare to the S301. Here we see compressible data and the only real contender is the OCZ Vector since the Intel 335 and OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS will drop off when we test with incompressible data. We'll get to those tests later in this review.
