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 Samsung Portable SSD T5 offered competitive read and write performance throughout the HD Tune tests, and the drive was even able to overtake a couple of the SATA
offerings on a few occasions.
