About HD Tune Pro 4.60

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 with HD Tune Pro 4.60, there are no fancy independent graph outputs in particular, so as with other USB drives, I took a screenshot and edited it to make it look better for publishing in a review. Much like the HD Tach graph we saw, the line is quite bumpy, but follows a flat trend. In terms of magnitude, the average numbers are different – probably with differing testing algorithms – but the characteristics are similar in practice. Other than this, one thing we should make a final note of is the access time. From AIDA64, we saw an average access time of 0.6ms, which was practically the same as both HD Tach and HD Tune, with differences only coming from the number of included digits. Everything else should be self-explanatory.
