Plextor M6e 256GB PCI Express SSD Review
     Tue, Apr 15 2014 | 5:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the all new Plextor M6e PCI Express SSD. A M2 Express SSD on a daughter-board. basically in this article you will learn all about what will be a hip thing on the Intel Z97 chipset. See PCIe M2 breaks away from the SATA3 bottleneck, this SSD can reach performance up-to say 770 Mb/sec ! Designed and based on PCI Express 2.0 x4 slot, the newcomers are 128 GB, 256 GB ad 512 GB SSDs powered by a Marvell controller. 770 Mb/sec. Incredible numbers really, but is that performance across the board, or just here and there in certain conditions we figured ?"

Toshiba MQ01ABD100H 1TB SSHD
     Tue, Apr 15 2014 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid state hybrid drives (SSHDs for short) may not pose a real threat for normal SSDs in terms of performance (not yet anyways) but they are already gaining ground against regular HDDs and that's something that has gotten the attention of many people in the industry ourselves included. We don't really need to point out that it was the latest Desktop SSHD 4TB by Seagate that really changed things since being the very first 3.5" hybrid drive in the market means that manufacturers are finally turning towards desktop drives that offer both higher performance levels and larger capacities. Of course that doesn't mean that manufacturers will just cease all development of 2.5" hybrid drives, far from it especially since such drives are quite popular especially amongst laptop and HTPC owners. Today we will be testing one of the latest SSHDs to hit the market the brand new MQ01ABD100H 1TB by Toshiba.

Samsung SSD 840 EVO mSATA Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, Apr 15 2014 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months back, we took a look at Samsung’s SSD 840 EVO series of solid state drives. At the time, we found their performance to be quite good, and the drives were competitively priced too. Shortly after the 2.5” versions of Samsung’s SSD 840 EVO drives hit the scene, the company prepared an array of mSATA drives featuring the same controller and NAND flash. The Samsung SSD 840 EVO mSATA series of drives would be essentially identical to their 2.5” counterparts, save for the mSATA drives’ much smaller form factor.

Performance consistency of popular 240-256GB SSD's review
     Mon, Apr 14 2014 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month we published a review on Intels new 730 series SSD, based on the same controller that you can find in Intel enterprise SSD's. As the controller is developed in house by Intel they claim that the consistency in the performance of these drives one of its stronger points, making it (according to Intel) very suitable to be used in RAID 0 arrays. We have not looked at performance consistency before when reviewing SSDs, but after receiving numerous requests from users we’ve done some extensive analysis on a number of popular 240-256 GB SSDs.

Seagate Desktop SSHD 2TB
     Sun, Apr 13 2014 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are excited about the phenomenon of SSHDs, and our excitement remains intact after testing the Seagate Desktop SSHD 4TB. We do have to admit that the new 4TB model is slightly slower than the previously tested 2TB model, as the new model runs at a speed of 5900 rpm. However, this is hardly noticeable in practice; the cache compensates for the reduction in rotational speed and real world benchmarks such as PCMark 7 and 8 reveal that there is little difference between the SSHD 2TB and 4TB, and that both are much faster than conventional hard drives.

Plextor M6M mSATA SSD (256GB) Review – Reliable Storage
     Sun, Apr 13 2014 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you happen to pop off the bottom casing of your laptop and find out that your 2.5? disk drive is nowhere to be found, do not panic. Instead, it’s possible that your laptop may be utilizing a different form factor than the 2.5? drive. When it comes to solid-state drives, there are three main form factors that you should know about. The first, as we have already mentioned is the 2.5? form factor, which is the standard size for most desktop and laptop systems. The second, and the primary focus of today’s review, is a mSATA drive. A mSATA drive is roughly 2? by 1? in total size, and ideally used in the slim ultra books. The final size that you should know and is quickly increasing in popularity is the M.2 form factor, which is roughly 3? by 0.75?. Looking back down at your open laptop, you may just see that mSATA, or even a M.2 drive. Regardless, it is still an easy upgrade just like the 2.5? form factor drive.

ADATA SP920 SSD Review Capacity Speed Value and Something Unexpected
     Thu, Apr 10 2014 | 11:32A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When SSDs were first introduced to the consumer way back in 07/08, many companies understood the value of what could be brought to the table and jumped aboard the new SSD train. SanDisk was the first to appear, followed by Samsung and Intel, all being NAND flash memory manufacturers. Several third-party companies were quick to join in through contracts with these SSD manufacturers, subsequently selling these SSDs under their own branding. There might be a slight variation in hardware or firmware, but for the most part, the SSDs were identical. Through time, this practice had become extinct, or so we thought."

Plextor M6S SSD Review (256GB) - Strength in a New Marvell SSD Controller Offering
     Thu, Apr 10 2014 | 2:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been a long time in the making but the new Plextor M6S family is finally rolling out. Based on Marvell SSD controllers and Toshiba NAND flash memory, we got our first glimpse at the M6e M.2 PCIe X2 SSD some months ago in our IO-Switch Raijin Review, followed by our official analysis of the 512GB capacity M6e (and some great RAID testing) a short time ago. To be completely honest, we have been just a bit spoiled by all manufacturers with respect to our M.2 SSD coverage. Things are a bit different today, however, as we introduce the Plextor M6S SSD, the newest of the Plextor M6 family and with a brand new Marvell controller."

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.
