Posted by: STAFF
ASUSTOR has been hard at work. Not only have they been releasing some very impressive NAS lately, but they are also hard at work in the development labs to try and make ADM (ASUSTOR Data Master) the best operating system they can. ADM is intuitive, impressive, and fast.

Intel 750 Series PCIe SSD Review
     Wed, May 20 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Don't be fooled into thinking the new Intel 750 PCIe solid state drive is a brand new drive. It is not. It's essentially a tweaked version of the P3700 Enterprise card but his time for consumers. The device currently comes in two sizes: 400GB & 1.2TB.

Toshiba MQ02ABF075 2.5' Mobile Thin HDD Review
     Tue, May 19 2015 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MQ02ABF075 drive from Toshiba exhibits good performances for a 5400RPM drive and comes with two platters and four heads on a 7mm form factor. This drive is mostly meant for ultrabooks and high-end multimedia devices, which do not need very high read/write performances but more storage space at a low price, while conserving battery life.

OCZ Vector 180 480GB Solid State Drive
     Mon, May 18 2015 | 9:24P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"OCZ has sent us their latest 2.5-inch solid state drive, the Vector 180. This new drive still uses the aging Barefoot 3 controller, but OCZ has teamed it with the latest Toshiba A19nm MLC NAND. This drive is all about reliability and features OCZ’s implementation of power loss protection, which they are calling Power Failure Management Plus (PFM+). PFM+ is not full power loss protection, but will protect data-at-rest. So PFM+ will protect data that has been already been written to the NAND. This helps protect the mapping table and reduces the risk of ‘bricking’ the drive. The 480GB version of the drive that we are reviewing today has sequential read and write speeds of 550 MB/s and 530 MB/s respectively. OCZ also backs this drive with their new ShieldPlus 5-year warranty. Let’s take a look!"

Samsung Portable SSD T1 250GB USB 3.0 Drive Review
     Mon, May 18 2015 | 9:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If there's one thing electronics manufacturers know very well that's the difference between market segments so although for enterprise users, professionals and in some cases even enthusiasts they offer products with performance and reliability as their primary features when it comes to casual consumers the all-time classic price/performance ratio takes their place. So you'd think that the same "rule" would also apply in the storage media segment of the market right? Well that's not really the case since when it comes to USB flash drives most storage media manufacturers focus primarily in reliability and security for enterprise grade models, speed and capacity for models aimed at enthusiasts and professionals and finally price and capacity for models aimed at casual users. There are some exceptions to that rule but the one that stands-out from the crowd is the latest Samsung Portable SSD T1 which we have here with us today.

Intel NUC5i7RYH w/ i7-5557U Review
     Sat, May 16 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The NUC is an extremely small device to house an entire computer, with that said expandability is limited to some degree. This particular model has slots for you to install one 2.5” drive and one M.2 drive. Thankfully I think we all realize that we don’t need tons of storage with the faster internet speeds available to us and the numerous choices of cloud services for streaming."

Ultimate Consumer SSD Showdown
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 9:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SSD technology grew stale after saturating the SATA 6Gb/s bus, bringing mostly minor improvements and making up for it with price cuts. With new PCIe and M.2 drives presenting an alternative for users seeking maximum performance it's time for a roundup. We'll cover a total of fourteen consumer-grade SSDs that use either the SATA, PCI Express or M.2 interface. As always, we'll be looking at price vs. performance to see where each product stands.

Samsung SM951 M.2 PCIe SSD Review (512GB)
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 9:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In 2013 we were able to get a hold of Samsung's first go at an OEM M.2 PCIe 2.0 x4 SSD, the XP941. Once word got out about this SSD's speeds many storage enthusiasts thirsted for it. Samsung was not prepared for the consumer market to get so hyped up over it and they stopped distribution to 3rd party resellers as demand was exceeding supply. After a few long months it was finally available again and if you were big on fast storage, this small gum stick SSD was the one for you. Now, fast forward to 2015. A few weeks ago we took a look at a very fast consumer M.2 SSD, the Kingston HyperX Predator. It offers consumers great speeds as well as endurance, surpassing that of the XP941. Not only that, but it is easily bootable in almost any system. Now, it claims the title of the fastest consumer M.2 PCIe SSD out, however, it isn't the fastest M.2 option to the storage enthusiast.

Patriot Ignite M2 480 GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:39P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So a lot of people might not know it but the new M.2 SSDs are actually very versatile. You can run them as a direct PCIe drive with a x2 or x4 connection or you can even run a standard SATA drive on M.2. It wasn’t long ago that I took a look at the Patriot Ignite SSD, well it just so happens Patriot send over another Ignite SSD. This time they sent over their brand new Ignite M2. The Ignite M2 is a SATA based M.2 drive. In other words with this being a SATA drive we still work under the limitations of the SATA interface but with that we keep costs down. Where this comes in handy is in builds where not having to run a 2.5 inch drive is best. So we know this is up my alley, not having to pack in a 2.5 inch drive would save a lot of trouble in some of our LANrigs! So let’s see what the Ignite M2 is all about and then run it through our standard benchmark suite.

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.
