The initial round of XPoint testing done
     Mon, Nov 20 2017 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in April, we finally got our mitts on some actual 3D XPoint to test, but there was a catch. We had to do so remotely. The initial round of XPoint testing done (by all review sites) on a set of machines located on the Intel campus. Intel had their reasons for this unorthodox review method, but we were satisfied that everything was done above board. Intel even went as far as walking me over to the very server that we would be remoting into for testing. Despite this, there were still a few skeptics out there, and today we can put all of that to bed.

Crucial’s FREE Momentum Cache Works on Any NVMe SSD
     Mon, Nov 13 2017 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You heard that right. This is the first time we are exploring RAM caching on an NVMe SSD in this fashion. While many RAM caching softwares exist, no other SSD manufacturer has yet to enable RAM caching for NVMe SSDs in quite the way Crucial has. Crucial’s Momentum Cache feature, part of Crucial Storage Executive, is unlocked for all NVMe SSDs, or at least the ones we have tested in our Z170 test system; the key here, of course, is that a compatible Crucial SSD must initially be on the system to enable this feature at all. So…we have a OCZ RD400 in our system. When we install Crucial Storage Executive on the system with a Crucial MX300 installed as well, Crucial Momentum will work on just about any NVMe SSD. Remove the Crucial SSD and Crucial Momentum will still cache the OCZ RD400 NVMe SSD. The key here is, as long as the Crucial drive is there initially, the software works on any number of NVMe SSDs.

Crucial BX300 SSD Review (480GB) – Now Featuring 3D MLC NAND
     Sat, Nov 11 2017 | 12:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems like it was just yesterday that I was holding the Crucial M4 in my hands and I was ready to upgrade my first gen i7 system with my first SSD ever, let alone with the first SATA 6Gb/s SSD ever. While my X58 motherboard had the latest SATA 6GB/s ports provided by Marvell chipset, those in the know always opted for the Intel SATA 3GB/s ports for the reliability. USB3.0 was just emerging in the market and M.2 NVMe devices were just a dream by those laying the groundwork for them.

ADATA SE730H External Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Nov 11 2017 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Fast portable storage is something that more and more people are starting to need. With file sizes of photos, video, and other content getting bigger we want fast storage to not only transfer these files between PCs, but to also view and work on large files or projects. Trying to work in Adobe Premiere with 4K content on a normal hard drive is not fun at all. That is where portable solid state drives come in, they are small and compact, as well as offer some serious transfer speeds. Today we are checking out the ADATA SE730H, which comes in capacities up to 512GB and offers transfer speeds of up to 500 MB/s. On top of that you have IP68 dust and waterproofing as well as military-grade shock proofing. Let’s see if this is the perfect drive for all of the content creators on the go."

     Fri, Nov 10 2017 | 4:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just moments ago Intel released the Intel Optane SSD 900P Series aimed at desktop enthusiasts that are looking for the ultimate storage drive. This is the first consumer product from Intel that uses 3D Xpoint Technology what was first introduced by Intel and Micron in July 2015. 3D Xpoint Technology looked to be 1000x faster than NAND and have 1000x the endurance, so we’ve been waiting over two years for a drive to come to market! Read on to see what the final product looks like!

Samsung Portable SSD T5 Review
     Thu, Nov 09 2017 | 4:56P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One of my favorite products from last year that I take with me everywhere is the Samsung Portable SSD T3. This portable solid state drive is super small, fast, and is what I’ve used to edit 4K content when I’m on the go. This year Samsung has a new Portable SSD T5, which has increased transfer speeds, a full metal casing design, and the same small footprint. This drive is perfect for content creators on the go and anyone who is looking for fast transfer speeds. Let’s see if this drive can live up to how great the SSD T3 was and if it is worth upgrading."

Optane with enough capacity to act as a system drive
     Mon, Nov 06 2017 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since April all was quiet, with all of us storage freaks waiting for a consumer version of Optane with enough capacity to act as a system drive. Sure we’ve played around with Optane Memory parts in various forms of RAID, but as we found in our testing, Optane’s strongest benefits are the very performance traits that do not effectively scale with additional drives added to an array. The preferred route is to just get a larger single SSD with more 3D XPoint memory installed on it, and we have that very thing today (and in two separate capacities)!

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.
