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 Intel SSD DC S3500 put up some very nice read performance scores in the HD Tune benchmark, though write performance trialed some of the other drives. The Intel SSD DC S3500 also put up some excellent access times in this benchmark, especially in the read portion of the test.
