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.
We saw more of the same in our HD Tune testing. The Trion 150 series offered competitive read performance and writes are significantly improved over last year's model, though still not quite as fast as some other drives in this benchmark.
