Intel SSD 660p Review: Snappy NVMe Storage
     Sat, Aug 18 2018 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has taken another step forward in its perpetual march towards high-capacity, lower-cost solid state drives. Today’s release of the new Intel SSD 660p series of drives marks the first in the company’s line-up to pack its brand-new 64-layer QLC (quad-level cell) 3D NAND flash memory, which essentially doubles the capacities available within the same footprint of previous-gen technologies. These drives are meant to finally put a nail in SATA’s coffin, thanks to their significantly better performance and aggressive pricing -- at under $0.20 per GiB in some configurations, believe it or not...

Kingston A1000 NVMe 240GB SSD Review
     Thu, Aug 16 2018 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is the Kingston A1000 M.2 drive, its second M.2 NVMe SSD. This is a 2280 form factor PCIe Gen 3.0 240 GB NVMe M.2 SSD. For a flash drive based company, Kingston is rather reserved with the releases of NVMe drives in M.2 factors, unlike Samsung and other brands. Kingston has the KC1000 and that’s it! But KC1000 is labelled as Native NVMe while A1000 is labelled as entry-level PCIe NVMe.

Intel Optane SSD 905P 960GB Drive Review
     Wed, Aug 15 2018 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel released the Optane SSD 900P series in Q4 2017 they really upped the ante in the enthusiast storage market with a high-end 3D Xpoint-based drive.

By doing some controller and firmware tweaks the engineers at Intel were able to boost performance higher than what they could achieve on the 900P series. Read on to see by how much!

Crucial MX500 1TB 2.5" 3D NAND SSD Review
     Wed, Aug 08 2018 | 9:53A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Crucial was hard at work in creating the successor to the MX300 SSD, aptly named the MX500. Whereas the MX300 showcased Micron’s 32-layer 3D NAND flash memory, the MX500 showcases Micron’s latest 64-layer 3D NAND flash memory, and this has enabled Crucial to increase the warranty length on the new MX500 to 5-years, instead of the 3-years offered on the MX300. I always tell people that a SSD is arguably the best single upgrade one can make for their computer. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the Crucial MX500 1TB SSD and see what improvements Crucial have managed to achieve."

Icy Dock MB973SP-1B FlexCage Review
     Tue, Aug 07 2018 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we test the Icy Dock FlexCage MB973SP-1B removable frame. Homeserver or self-built or finished NAS solutions are gaining popularity again. Almost all finished network attached storages have so-called hot-swap bays, which makes it easy to change the hard disks. But what if the performance of a NAS is not sufficient, but you don’t want to do without the comfort of the hot-swap bays? Many consumer cases or 19-inch cases in the lower price segment only have internal 3.5-inch and additional external 5.25-inch slots. Since you rarely need optical drives in home servers, these drive bays are ideal for installing an Icy Dock FlexCage removable frame.
