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. The Crucial X6 2TB remained very flat on average. It differed slightly in magnitude than HD Tach -- probably due to testing algorithms used -- but its performance characteristics were identical in practice. Other than that, the results were within expectations for a budget SATA-based external SSD; the recorded access time was very low as we would expect as well. The X6 2TB posted an average of 263.4MB/s for its sequential read speed, which is, again, faster than the LaCie Mobile SSD 500GB at 220.0MB/s. The Crucial X6 2TB's tested latency was the nearly the same as AIDA64 and HD Tach at 0.094 ms. Do keep in mind the discussion we had on the previous page, as it still applies here.
