QUOTE:"Crucial is aiming for those of you who have yet to take the SSD plunge. Is the BX100 ho-hum, or does it have a little magic under the hood?"

HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 Hitting 2.8GBs @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Apr 25 2015 | 10:16A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month we looked at the performance of the HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe G2 x4 Solid-State Drive and found that was one of the fastest M.2 SSDs that you can purchase right now. To be honest the only two M.2 PCIe SSDs that enthusiasts should be looking at right now would be the Kingston HyperX Predator and the Samsung SM951. The Samsung SM951 is very tough to purchase since it is an OEM storage drive, so that leaves the HyperX Predator as being the fastest consumer M.2 PCIe SSD that is readily available on the market right now. The HyperX Predator PCIe SSD is available in 240 and 480GB capacities and is factory rated as having up to 1400MB/s sequential read and 1000 MB/s sequential write speeds. We were very happy with the performance we got from this drive, but we were curious what performance would look like if we put two HyperX Predator 480GB PCIe SSDs together to create a logical RAID0 array.  Read on to find out how fast we can get them!"

Crucial BX100 500GB SSD Review
     Thu, Apr 23 2015 | 4:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial is a subsidiary of Micron Technology and presents one successful SSD after another since the first SSD. According to our reviews of the current MX200 with 500 GB and 1 TB capacity, we are testing now the less expensive BX100 SSD with 500 GB capacity. In this review, the Crucial CT500BX100SSD1 will compete against the predecessors C300, m4, M500, M550 and MX100 and some more current SSDs. The price is excellent, but what is about the SSD durability and performance ?

8 Facts You Never Knew About Western Digital
     Tue, Apr 21 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote : Western Digital My Passport portable hard disk drives are popular because they are not only fast, they also come with hardware encryption which allows for instantaneous encryption of all data. This is very useful because the encryption capability is built right into the drive and is very easy to use. In addition, the encryption process is performed by the hard disk drive controller, so it has no effect on the system's performance.

Samsung SM951 512GB M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0
     Sun, Apr 19 2015 | 3:59P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If our review yesterday on the Samsung SM951 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD was interesting, but you found yourself thinking that the first M.2 PCI Express 3.0 x4 storage drive just isn’t fast enough for you we have a real treat for you today. We managed to get our hands on another Samsung SM951 512GB Drive (part number MZ-HPV512) and slapped it on our Intel X99 desktop test system to make a dynamic RAID 0 array! A single Samsung SM951 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD is capable of 2150MB/s sequential read and 15000 MB/s sequential write speeds, so this setup could possibly get us up to 4300 MB/s sequential read and 3000 MB/s sequential write if all works as planned since we’d be running the SSDs in tandem. Read on to see just how fast we could get two of these M.2 PCIe 3.0x4 SSDs!

Crucial MX200 1TB & BX100 500GB Series SSD Review
     Fri, Apr 17 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial's SSDs have been among the most reliable and best performing on the market, with last summer's MX100 being the company's greatest hit. Despite offering solid performance even by today's standards, its 'MX200' sucessor arrived only six month later and along with it Crucial also introduced the even more affordable BX100 series and a new SSD toolbox software. On today's menu is the beefy 1TB MX200 ($470) along with the 500GB BX100 ($190).

OCZ Vector 180 480GB Solid State Drive Review
     Wed, Apr 15 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have had a look at the 960GB capacity of the new Vector 180 series already and today it’s time to take a closer look at the smaller sibling with 480GB capacity. The new mainstream and entry-level server SSD is packed full of great features and performance, and the 480GB capacity will probably hit the sweet spot for most people interested in this drive.

Intel SSD 750 Series 1.2TB PCIe X4 Card Review
     Tue, Apr 14 2015 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to pricing the SSD 750 Series isn’t cheap and that is hardly going to shock anyone, after all this is an enthusiast/workstation series. The 400GB model has an MSRP of $390 and the 1.2TB model that we reviewed has an MSRP of $1030. That means the 400GB works out at a cost of $0.97 per gigabyte and the 1.2TB model $0.85 per gigabyte. Those were decent prices a few years ago, but today with SSDs such as the Samsung SSD 850 Pro 1TB fetching $0.55 per gigabyte, that makes the Intel SSD 750 series rather expensive.

Samsung 850 EVO mSATA and M.2 SSD Review
     Mon, Apr 13 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in December, Samsung launched the 850 EVO series of SSDs in the standard 2.5” form factor. Along with the 850 PRO, these were the first SSDs to utilize Samsung's new 32-layer 3D V-NAND technology. When combined with Samsung's TurboWrite technology, the 850 EVO's can attain some amazing data transfer speeds. Samsung is now expanding its lineup of 850 EVO form factors to include M.2 and mSATA versions. We just recently published a review of the M.2 version, and today we have on hand both 120GB and 1TB models of the mSATA 850 EVO to give a testing bench test drive.

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.
