Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Kingston SSDNow V Series 128gb SSD Notebook  - Kingston SSDNow V Series 128gb SSD Notebook

" Today for review I’ve got the Kingston SSDNow V Series 128gb SSD, but it’s not just the drive I have as they sent me the Notebook bundle kit. The last Kingston SSD I reviewed was the 40gb SSDNow V desktop upgrade kit so getting this one makes a nice contrast to the other. These new SSD drives from Kingston are faster than the first generation and their main new feature is the addition of TRIM support now. It might be named the notebook bundle but the drive can be used fro anything as you might expect, but to make things easier for those of us that want to upgrade our notebooks Kingston included a rather nice USB enclosure so you can clone your SSD via USB quickly and easily. In the following review I’ve compared the new Kingston SSDnow V to the last generation and to another value priced SSD I’ve got on hand, I also decided to toss the SSDNow V drive into a USB3.0 enclosure and test it that way to see the results. So read on to see the comparison and learn more about the new Kingston SSDnow V SSD… "

"We've looked at several USB 3.0 drive enclosures and realize the enclosures are not the bottleneck limiting transfer speeds to around 200MB/s. As it stands right now, the promised USB 3.0 bandwidth claim of 5Gbps is a sham since the bandwidth from the USB 3.0 controller is limited at the motherboard level. Until we get more PCIe bandwidth dedicated to USB 3.0 we are stuck at around 200MB/s. USB 3.0 will one day offer over 600 MB/s, but until things change at the motherboard level we aren't going to see anything near that mark. At this point, benchmarking USB 3.0 drive enclosures over and over again is a giant waste of time for both us as reviewers and you as readers. Just about every USB 3.0 drive enclosure is going to perform the same as long as they have the same hard drive in the enclosure. Because of this, bare enclosures (ie. ship without a hard drive preinstalled) will be reviewed in the Quick Review format hereon. This will allow us to educate our readers about new enclosures and not bore you with performance data that is redundant."
