SanDisk Extreme Pro 240GB SSD Review
     Sat, Apr 22 2017 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The product name 'Kingston HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard' is wider than the keyboard itself. As you can summarize from its name, it is aimed towards First Person Shooting? You would speculate that Kingston would eventually have MMORPG/MOBA keyboard with on-the-fly macro keys. Kingston isn't very shy to diversify, similar to Corsair. Once known for flash and memory products, Kingston has a good reputation for selling headphones and headsets of different make, features and pricing.

Crucial MX300 525 GB M.2 SSD Review with Thermal Video
     Fri, Apr 21 2017 | 12:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After our test of Crucial MX300 2 TB SSD we take a look at the 2280 M.2 SSD from the MX300 series. We test the Crucial MX300 525GB M.2 SSD and compare the benchmarks with SSDs from Intel, Samsung and other SSDs. Another subject is particularly interesting at M.2 SSDs and that is the temperature of M.2 SSDs. For this reason we have taken pictures with a thermal imaging camera and even published a M.2 thermal video in our OCinside YouTube Channel, where the M.2 temperature is shown during a benchmark in 4x speed!

Toshiba Announces Volume Availability of 8TB Model
     Mon, Apr 17 2017 | 12:22P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) announces the volume availability of its next MG Series of Enterprise Capacity HDDs providing 8TB for business critical servers and shared storage systems. With a 33 percent increase in capacity from the previous Toshiba 6TB SATA generation, this drive is the first Toshiba 8TB SATA 6.0Gbit/s[2] capacity-optimized storage for the enterprise. The MG05ACA800 improves sustained transfer rate performance by 12 percent when compared to the MG04ACA.

 

Toshiba’s new 8TB model can help improve the operational efficiency of storage infrastructure by increasing the capacity available in the 3.5-inch form factor. The drive’s high capacity SATA interface and performance characteristics match-up well with requirements for applications such as software-defined storage infrastructures, public and private cloud deployments, digital archives and disk-based backup and data protection solutions.

 

The drive’s power management features help to optimize operating costs and operating environments during off-peak activity periods. The 8TB SATA HDD is designed for 24x7 operation and provides a 550TB transferred-per-year rated workload[3], with a 2,000,000 hour MTTF[4] rating. In addition, this is the first Toshiba Enterprise Capacity SATA model to support the new industry-standard host-initiated power-disable feature for improved device management capability.

 

“Accommodating rapid data growth continues to be a prime focus for both cloud-scale and on-premise IT environments,” said Noriaki Katakura, General Manager of Toshiba Electronics Europe, HDD Business Unit. “Toshiba’s new 8TB SATA enterprise-capacity HDD provides high capacity per-spindle. This helps OEMs and cloud service providers (CSPs) deliver enterprise-class storage capacity for business critical workloads that need to keep pace with rapid data growth.”

 

The recently announced IDC market report[5] identified Toshiba as the fastest growing HDD vendor segment in 2016 over 2015, as measured by revenue and units. Toshiba’s growth was aided by their comprehensive range of innovative HDD models offered across different primary market segments. The new 8TB SATA HDD, part of the MG Series, is aimed at Enterprise Capacity and Data Center needs.

 

In February 2017 the cumulative Toshiba Near-Line Enterprise HDD production number reached 10,000,000 units. The MG Series HDD drives, that are Near-Line Enterprise HDDs, are sampling today to OEMs and System Integrators. Typical use cases include tiered storage infrastructure for public and private cloud deployments, virtual desktop interface (VDI), email servers, data-protection and other business-critical systems use-cases; public and private cloud storage, software defined storage, business critical servers, business critical storage systems (including NAS and SAN), disk-based backup systems (including cloud-scale data protection), data archives and digital records storage, and SMB servers and storage platforms.

WD Black PCIe NVMe SSD Review (512GB)
     Mon, Apr 17 2017 | 11:04A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

WD Black hard drives have long been the go-to hard drive for many storage consumers. They satisfy the needs of those looking for fast, reliable storage and although they are priced on the high side, they come with a 5-year warranty, which is hard to beat. However, with the release of so many SSDs into the market, WD had been falling behind. Consumers now demand faster storage than what HDDs can offer. WD had no choice but to finally enter the SSD market. Due to this, WD acquired SanDisk, which in turn gave them the necessary tools to make their entrance.

Intel Optane Memory With 3D XPoint Technology
     Mon, Mar 27 2017 | 12:37P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Early last week, Intel revealed its Optane SSD DC P4800X featuring 3D Xpoint memory technology. The Optane SSD DC P4800X is an enterprise-class product, targeted at data centers and mission-critical applications where reliable, ultra-low-latency access to large amounts of data is paramount. Today, Intel is introducing another new product featuring 3D Xpoint memory, but this is one quite literally at the other end of the spectrum. The Intel Optane Memory devices we’ll be discussing here looks like other current generation 80mm M.2 “gumstick” type solid state drives. However, Intel Optane Memory is meant to be used as an accelerator for systems featuring relatively low-speed storage devices, like hard drives...
