Addlink S70 SSD Review: Speedy, Affordable NVMe Storage
     Sat, Jan 18 2020 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Addlink isn't a particularly well-known manufacturer in the PC storage space, but the company has been in the business for a little over a decade. Online shops carry all sorts of flash memory products from Addlink, from micro SD cards to PCI-Express 4.0 solid state drives, and all points in between. However, just because you may not be as familiar with a certain brand or product doesn't mean it's not worth paying attention to. At the risk of giving away the conclusion in the first paragraph of this review, we dare say that Addlink's S70 M.2 SSD is one of those situations...

Team Group T-Force Vulcan 500 GB SSD
     Fri, Jan 10 2020 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Team Group T-Force Vulcan SSD is priced extremely competitively with $50 for 500 GB, yet delivers outstanding performance. What's surprising is that the drive comes in both TLC and MLC variants, at the same price, but there's no way to know before buying. We tested both models in our review, with surprising results.

Silicon Power Bolt B75 Pro Portable SSD Review
     Wed, Jan 08 2020 | 12:32P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" The B75 Pro external SSD drive is a clear improvement over the regular B75 in terms of overall performance and we should not experience drastic performance drops if data is moved to it in small quantities. If we need to transfer large files from a single stage, the TLC NAND limitations will be visible as soon as SLC cache gets filled and writes can drop to as low as 6 megabytes per second. The aluminum chassis is light, gives the product an overall premium look and also acts as a heatsink for the internal 2.5’’ SSD. "

WD SN550 Blue 1TB NVMe SSD @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jan 08 2020 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in April I took a look at Western Digitals first budget focused M.2 NVMe drive with their Blue SN500 and I was impressed with both its performance and pricing, opening up more options for those not looking to build a crazy high-end PC that still want performance faster than the SATA drives and non-NVMe PCI based drives. Well here we are less than a year later and they have a new WD Blue drive available that is NVMe once again with a bump in performance with a focus on content creators and normal users who want NVMe performance. The new drive is called the WD Blue SN550 and Western Digital sent over their 1TB model which is a capacity that a lot of people are looking for when shopping for drives these days and it is the largest capacity available for the SN550. Today I’m going to take a closer look at the new drive to see what it has going on and put it to the test in our test suite to see how it performs then we can digest all of that and see if it is still the great buy that the SN500 was. Let's go!

Posted by: STAFF
Computer storage has come a long way since our last roundup. We have new PCIe 4.0 SSDs, NVMe drives are becoming the de facto standard for new machines, and prices for legacy drives have plummeted. Rather than just focusing on high-end drives, this time we decided to take a step back and explore the entire storage market from top to bottom.

SEAGATE IronWolf 110 ZA240NM10001 240GB NAS SSD Review
     Sun, Dec 22 2019 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Seagate Ironwolf 110 SSD is made for small to SOHO NAS arrays. While NAS bays do provide cages with both 3.5"/ 2.5" drives, there are some really small form factor NAS specifically made for 2.5" SATA drives for mechanical and solid-state. There are also 3.5"/2.5" hybrid NAS that uses SSDs as additional caching for the primary storage array. Naturally, this would make a market for NAS specific SSDs. This is the Seagate Ironwolf variant. The Ironwolf 110SSD comes with a set of its own marketed features- AgileArray firmware and DuraWrite are two of these firmware specific implementations. These NAS SSDs do that have a 5-year warranty with an included 2-year data recovery support. Though the provision for this data recovery support varies between countries.
