Perhaps the most respect an SSD review site can gain is to be trusted to report on SSDs that carry with them a great deal of confidentiality and secrecy in their purpose and design. Being consistently chosen as the first and one of the very limited evaluators is icing on the cake. Such is the case between The SSD Review and TCS and has been for some time as we have previously published reports for the TCS Galatea and TCS Proteus SSDs. Our report today is rather special as we are looking at an entirely new design from TCS, one that has been aptly named the TCS BGADrive. The TCS BGADrive was released in January 2013 and one can`t imagine the work it takes to get from a simple conversation to final hands-on analysis and report of such equipment. This has been months in the making and much more cooperation than we have ever seen for a review prior. As much as cannot be spoken of or shown, we think our end report will grab and hold your attention as the TCS BGADrive is definitely something we don`t get our hands on every day. Two things stand out when we speak of TCS products, and these are MIL-STD-810 and the fact that these SSDs are created and trusted for `mission critical applications`. Defined, a mission critical application is one in which the failure of the device could result, directly or indirectly, in personal injury or death. These applications demand equipment that can stand well above the norm in pressure, shock and weather conditions, and that is what MIL-STD-810 is intended for."
Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
