Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Intel 520 Series 240GB Solid State Drives in RAID 0 - PCSTATS.com Intel 520 Series 240GB Solid State Drives in RAID 0
Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 3:54PM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

I`m a bit surprised no one has asked why Intel sampled most media outlets with two and in some cases three identical 520 Series 240GB drives for review. As a consumer I`d rather have seen performance numbers from both 240GB (our single drive review is here) and 120GB drives since these are the capacity sizes that make the most sense for computer users today. As you can imagine, no one is going to complain about getting dual 240GB drives especially media folks who are generally power users with PCs on steroids. A few months back we looked at the OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 and learned that OCZ figured out how to get TRIM working on the drive`s RAID controller. The hardware is ready, but Windows is now the roadblock we were told. Months later we started finding hints that Intel was getting ready to release software that allows TRIM to work in RAID as well."

A quick patch update to Windows can extend the useful life of a PC. To take the fear out of Upgrading Windows 98 to Windows XP, rely on this guide. - PCSTATS Tips
