OCZ Technology Vertex 4 256GB Solid State Drive Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Sat, Aug 04 2012 | 11:50A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ Technology Vertex 4 256GB solid state drive is an impressive unit, and a nice upgrade over the previous generation of Vertex drives. During testing it was particularly strong in most of the read tests where the only close competition was an Intel 520 series drive. However, when it came to write speeds none of the reference drives were even close."

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Aug 04 2012 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
/ /The Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SATA III MLC Internal SSD takes the same technology as the HyperX 5K and makes it more affordable. The Kingston HyperX 3K uses 3000 P/E cycle NAND memory. This drives the price down significantly into a sensible range. The HyperX 3K is still driven by the same SandForce SF-2281 controller and uses SATA Rev 3.0 interface. The combination of those features gives the HyperX 3K the ability to boast speeds up to 555MB/s read and 510MB/s write. IOPS performance has been rated at 40K/57K sustained random 4K R/W and 86K/60K maximum random R/W. This specific model is the upgrade kit which features, in addition to the SSD, a 2.5 metal USB enclosure, 3.5 bracket with mounting screws, SATA data cable, HDD cloning software, and a multi-bit screwdriver.///"

[Tech ARP] Kingston DataTraveler Elite 3.0 USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review Rev. 2.0
     Fri, Aug 03 2012 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we are going to take a look at Kingston`s latest USB 3.0 flash drive targeted at the value market - the *Kingston DataTraveler Elite 3.0 (DTE30)*. One can think of it as the economical version of the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 (DTU30) and the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Gen. 2. Here are the DataTraveler Elite 3.0`s key features : - Tri-Coloured - Convenient - Customizable - Guaranteed Kingston currently offers the DataTraveler Elite 3.0 in capacities of 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. We only received a 16 GB sample (the DTE30/16GB), so its performance may vary with its larger capacity brothers. With that in mind, let`s take a look at the *16 GB Kingston DataTraveler Elite 3.0* and see how it racks up against a slew of other USB flash drives! *In this update, we added a new Size Comparison section, as well as Kingston`s response on the high case temperature. We also made some layout and editorial corrections.*"
