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, HD Tune does not generate any fancy independent graph outputs in particular, so I had to edit my screenshot out a bit to make it look better for publishing in a review. Its numbers differ slightly in magnitude than the other program -- probably due to testing algorithms used -- but its performance characteristics are identical in practice. What is different from our HD Tach results on the previous page is the Western Digital Red Pro actually came in first, edging out the Seagate by a hair. This was followed by Hitachi's Deskstar NAS, and the Western Digital Red in fourth. As you can see in our screenshot above, the Western Digital Red Pro WD4001FFSX 4TB scored an average of 141.1MB/s with random access time of 12.5ms, while Seagate's NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB posted a score of 139.3MB/s at 17.9ms in the same test. The Western Digital Red WD40EFRX 4TB's numbers are 120.9MB/s and 16.8ms, respectively. Again, the Hitachi Deskstar NAS 4TB's 132.2MB/s sequential read average was not the highest, but it did come in with the second best random access delay of 15.5ms, behind the WD Red Pro.
