Intel SSD Pro 2500 Series 240GB Enterprise SSD Review
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 1:16A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has three different Solid-State Drive (SSD) product families; Data Center, Professional and Consumer. We have looked at plenty of SSDs by Intel in the consumer family, but we seldom look at Professional and Data Center drives. The Intel SSD Professional Family is designed with a little less emphasis on performance and more concern on stability, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and lastly manageability and security/encryption features. This means that the Professional Family isn’t about having the latest cutting edge technology, but rather a reliable drive that has power efficient performance. The Intel Solid-State Drive Pro 2500 Series is the latest drive to become part of the Professional Family and Legit Reviews takes a look at the 240GB model today.

     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 1:15A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There’s lots of sassy energy bouncing off the floor at Anime Expo 2014 where the exuberance of youthful vigor attracts people and families who enjoy anime, manga, cosplaying, and Japanese culture into a single location for one long weekend. While this year’s event was my first Anime Expo, it didn’t come entirely as a surprise due to the fact that I’ve been following the past events every time photos from my friends slam into my Facebook news feed. While this is very much some random coverage for Legit Reviews which we may or may not do again, the following content is in ways a test as much as this adventure is a new....

Crucial MX100 256GB & 512GB SSD Review
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 1:15A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial has deemed it time to replace the popular yet aging M500 drive and have chosen to do so with the MX100 series of drives. These new drives feature the Marvell 88SS9189 controller, a minor upgrade from the 88SS9187 that was found in the M500 drive. The MX100's 88SS9189 is paired with 16nm NAND which is a change from the 20nm NAND found on the M500. Nothing we haven’t seen before, but the real story with these drives is the pricing.

Home Server Build Part 3 - The Context
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 1:07A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In parts one and two, we basically spec'd and built a basis for a Home Server. In reality, other than plans to use it as a Server, it is currently just a desktop PC with RAID SSD's and a lot of RAM. We have had the server up and running now for some weeks and it has performed flawlessly. The 2 tests HDD's are running quiet and cool, thanks to the 120mm case fan blowing fresh air over them and they are delivering content on demand while storing all our critical information. But now, it's really time for the context of the build.
