HD Tune Benchmarks
EFD Software's HD Tune is described on the company's web site as such: "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." The
latest version of the benchmark added temperature statistics and improved support for SSDs, among a few other updates and fixes.
The XPG SX900 offered up mediocre performance in HD Tune. Its only particularly strong score was the Average Transfer Rate read test, and its read score in the Burst Rate test wasn’t bad. However, across the board, it posted midrange scores, though access times were a bit high relative to the competition.
