HD Tune 2.55
Clever design lets you quickly accommodate
With a very user friendly interface, this utility makes all its functions accessible from the main window which is organized in 4 tabs especially for this purpose. A nice extra is the fact that HD Tune can show you the current temperature for the selected HDD.
Scans and detects damaged blocks
This application is able to conduct a benchmark to show you the minimum, the average and the maximum transfer rates, alongside burst rate and access time. Another ability of HD Tune is the error scan it can conduct in order to show you if there are any damaged blocks.
Probably the most impressive thing is that the application runs very smoothly, so you can easily start a benchmark while continuing to work without being bothered by the ongoing process.
Gain access to detailed info on your hard disk drive
The 'Info' tab of HD Tune displays all the features supported by your hard drive as well as some partition information. You can even view the firmware version, serial number and buffer capacity for your HDD
Overall, HD Tune remains a great piece of software, especially for beginners who simply need a means of quickly evaluating the performance of their hard disks. Thanks to the great ease of use and good feature pack this application definitely deserves a spot high on the recommendations list.
