About HD Tune Pro 5.70

HD Tune Pro is a hard disk / SSD 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 Netac ZX10 2TB's throughput remained very flat on average. While HD Tune is more of a drag race than a clear indication of real-life performance, it is an excellent storage performance reference among SSDs with the same controller. The results were good across the range and the recorded access time was low, as we would expect from a solid state drive.

The ZX10 2TB posted an average of 353.5MB/s for its sequential read speed. This was very slow for a USB 3.2 Gen 2 portable SSD in 2024. Drives that are in the same class include the Crucial X9 Pro 2TB at 589.7MB/s. ADATA Elite SE880 1TB at 608.5MB/s, and Kingston XS1000 2TB at 609.4MB/s. One exception is the Crucial X8 2TB, where it came in even lower at 285.5MB/s, but the X8 is an older model and is no longer in production. At the end of the day, HD Tune may not be the best test for solid state drives all the time, but these results are always interesting to look at.
