What Role Do SSD Components Play - Learning To Run With Flash
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 7:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although most parts are consistent in all SSDs (PCB, controller, memory, interface), we will describe that which the consumer is most likely to see, the notebook SSD. Originally available in a thickness of 9.5mm, todays notebook SSDs are typically only 7mm thick to allow for ultra book installations and may include a rubber spacer to allow it to fit notebooks that require that 9.5cm width."

ADATA Premier Pro SP920 SSD (512GB) Review
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA has definitely proven that they are a force to be reckoned with so far this year. We first checked in with them at CES, where we got to see their newly coloured DRAM modules, wireless device charging technology, as well as their line up of new solid state drives. Shortly thereafter, ADATA released their SSD Toolbox software, which allows for you to monitor the health of your ADATA solid state drive. Today, ADATA goes one step further by releasing the ADATA Premier PRO SP920 SSD, and we have the opportunity to take an in-depth look at the 512GB model.

OCZ Vertex 460 240GB Solid State Drive Review
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few months, OCZ have been in the limelight with the news of imminent bankruptcy and to be quite honest, for us reviewers and particularly those of use that review their products it has been very had to ignore the facts and what was going on. As a result I was very sceptical that I was going to get any more products from them and these were the last days of one of the best SSDs names out there. Fortunately though, help was on hand and following a buyout from Toshiba, OCZ are once again back in the game. With Indlinx controllers at their heart and now having Toshiba’s own NAND packages spread around, OCZ have now got a stable supply of components for their SSDs and with this set of critical changes taking place, there is no other way to display their come back but to release a new drive. Following in the footsteps of the Vertex 450, the Vertex 460 is home to the same Indlinx BareFoot 3 M10 controller, however on the NAND front the younger and fresher drive takes advantage of Toshiba’s 19nm MLC NAND packages and the resulting combination sees a drive that on paper looks quite promising. The rated performance figures put it up with some of the class leading drives, although it has been priced in the region of other mainstream drives. Whilst some people are sceptical that the buyout from Toshiba will help out OCZ in the longterm, OCZ are still going to run under their own name and the essence of OCZ’s previous products is still going to be there. I personally have high hopes for them and I look forward to seeing a number of class leading products roll off the production line in the near future. There is only one way to see how the rejuvenation process has gone and that is to put the drives to test and see what they are made of.

Samsung XP941 Native PCIe M.2 SSD (512GB) Review - 1GB/s Transfer Speeds Set The Bar
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 5:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we have previously mentioned in our review of the Plextor M6M solid state drive, it is important to remember that SSD`s can come in different shapes and sizes. Not all drives are going to be the 2.5 form factor and fit perfectly into your ultra book or desktop. We spoke briefly about the mSATA form factor and that you will find it most often in a laptop, but as laptops and ultra books become slimmer, the demand for smaller, yet faster, drives increases. Bring in the native PCIe M.2 form factor. The PCIe M.2 SSD eliminates the SATA 3 bottleneck, where with SATA 3 you can expect SSD speeds around 500 MB/s, but with PCIe you can expect speeds nearly double this. Incredible isn`t it? Imagine, 1GB/s and you are not even using a RAID 0 configuration; it really is astonishing. The Samsung XP941 PCIe M.2 SSD is one of, if not the fastest drive we have ever seen. Let`s take a closer look!"

Crucial M550 512 GB
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial's new M550 SSD is based on an updated version of the Marvell controller, which means it no longer uses overprovisioning: you get to use the whole capacity. In our real-life testing we also see a slight performance improvement, which is great, especially considering the M550's competitive pricing.

SSD Endurance Diary with OCZ Vector 256 GB @ ocaholic
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 11:32A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Meanwhile most enthusiasts have an SSD in their PC and since manufacturers are successfully conquering the mass maket with SSDs, these new, quick drives are nowadays widely spread. In the past there were quite a few drives that died an all sudden death. Even today customers are not sure for how long their SSD will last and especially the P/E-cylce count (program/erase cycles) is something that worries quite a few well informed users. In this diary we`re going to check what it takes to use up all P/E-cycles an OCZ Vector SSD has to offer, that features 256 Gigabyte capacity. So what is your guess, how long is it going to take until the drive refuses to work."

MyDigitalSSD Pocket Vault SSD Review Speed & Capacity In a Value Driven Ultra Small Mobile SSD
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 9:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Size is everything in the world of SSDs and first hand proof of this can be seen in any number of ultrabooks, including the Apple MBA. True ultrabook size can only be accomplished through mSATA or M.2 SSDs. Much is the same with external storage where we have seen size reduced significantly, while performance has jumped exponentially with the introduction of UASP and SuperSpeed. Not so long ago, we looked at the MyDigitalSSD OTG External USB 3.0 SSD that was 256GB in size and displayed performance of 449MB/s. This external solution used a mSATA SSD to accomplish its performance with SuperSpeed."

Plextor M6e 256GB PCI Express SSD Review
     Tue, Apr 15 2014 | 5:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the all new Plextor M6e PCI Express SSD. A M2 Express SSD on a daughter-board. basically in this article you will learn all about what will be a hip thing on the Intel Z97 chipset. See PCIe M2 breaks away from the SATA3 bottleneck, this SSD can reach performance up-to say 770 Mb/sec ! Designed and based on PCI Express 2.0 x4 slot, the newcomers are 128 GB, 256 GB ad 512 GB SSDs powered by a Marvell controller. 770 Mb/sec. Incredible numbers really, but is that performance across the board, or just here and there in certain conditions we figured ?"

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
