SSD Performance HD Tune PRO

HD Tune Pro

HD Tune Pro is a hard disk utility and benchmarking utility for Windows. This tiny application allows you to scan your hard drives for errors or take a deeper look at several performance figures coming from the storage unit.


As you can see a quick perf scan shows read speeds over 2000 MBps, with writes close to 1900 MBps. This is impressive for an external storage device. 


The Random IOPS perf, however, caved in specifically for this test and this test only. So we'll call it a benchmark error (see below). Also, and unfortunately, all other write tests require an unformatted unpartitioned storage unit, as such we can only run the HD Tune Pro random access read test.
