About HD Tune Pro 5.70
HD Tune is a hard disk utility with many functions. It can be used to measure the drive's performance, scan for errors, check the health status (S.M.A.R.T.), securely erase all data and much more.

Unfortunately, HD Tune does not generate any fancy independent graph outputs in particular, so I just took a screenshot of the program. Like our HD Tach results on the previous page, the line was a bit bumpy, but remained fairly flat on average. It differs slightly in magnitude than the other program -- probably due to testing algorithms used -- but its performance characteristics are identical in practice. Other than that, the results were commendable across the range; the recorded access time was very low, as we would expect from a solid state drive. The Crucial BX500 960GB posted an average of 374.6MB/s for its sequential read speed, which is slightly below the BX500 480GB. Do keep in mind the discussion we had on the previous page, as it still applies here.
