Launched at the same time as the 970 EVO, the 970 PRO is Samsung’s 3rd generation flagship NVMe consumer drive, taking over the mantle from the legend that is the 960 PRO. Coming in at £599.99 it is certainly not cheap, but can the performance justify that hefty price tag?

Synology DiskStation DS1618+ Review
     Tue, Jun 19 2018 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Designed to allow easy sharing of files on a network, and even more advanced features like multimedia transcoding and playback, Network-Attached Storage (NAS) devices are becoming more and more commonplace in today’s homes and businesses. Most units offer not only their file and resource sharing benefits, but they typically also provide other great features like automated backups to cloud services and fault tolerant disk configurations that can be of great benefit to business users. Many companies offer NAS devices spanning the gamut from single or dual-drive systems, all the way up to rack-mounted enterprise solutions capable of supporting dozens of local disks. Synology, a tried and true provider of NAS, networking, and surveillance products, recently released the DiskStation DS1618+, a NAS aimed at providing both home and small-to-medium sized businesses with a scalable storage solution. Offering room for up to six drives, and the ability to upgrade to a 10Gbps NIC or M.2 SSD caching, the DiskStation DS1618+ looks to be a powerhouse system. Follow along as we explore its features and give it a bit of a workout in our review."

We’ve been waiting quite a while to find out what Samsung had in mind to replace the hugely popular SSD 960 series, after all, it was launched back in 2016 – which seems like an eternity given how fast the NVMe market has been moving. Well, the wait is over as the new drives are here, and today we assess the 2TB 970 EVO.

Toshiba OCZ RC100 SSD Review: Tiny, Affordable NVMe Storage
     Mon, Jun 18 2018 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although we first caught a glimpse of the SSD that would become the Toshiba OCZ RC100 back at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, they are now ready for public consumption and Toshiba has just begun shipping the drives. If you’re not hip to the OCZ RC100, it’s a new family of solid state drives that’s specifically designed to push the NVMe interface and smaller M.2 form factor further down into mainstream price points. Toshiba accomplishes this feat by using a single-package design that packs the NAND flash memory and controller into a single chip. The drive’s design is also DRAM-less to further reduce costs. The end result is a tiny, power-efficient product that offers better performance than more common SATA-based drives, at lower power and prices than higher-end NVMe M.2-based drives...

Toshiba OCZ RC100 SSD Review
     Sun, Jun 17 2018 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We first learned about the Toshiba RC100 Series SSD at CES 2018 and were intrigued by the by what Toshiba was showing off. The RC100 series are all M.2 PCIe Gen 3x2 NVMe drives that use the tiny 2242 form factor rather than the much more common 2280 form factor. Toshiba was able to release this drive on such a small PCB as it uses single-core design where the Toshiba DRAM-less controller and 64-Layer TLC NAND Flash (BiCS3) are all on the same package.

Budget SSDs
     Sun, Jun 17 2018 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Budget SSDs are a tough trick to pull off. You have components, a PCB, and ultimately assembly - all things which costs money. Savings can be had when major components (flash) are sourced from within the same company, but there are several companies already playing that game. Another way to go is to reduce PCB size, but then you can only fit so much media on the same board as the controller and other necessary parts. Samsung attempted something like this with its PM971, but that part was never retail, meaning the cost savings were only passed to the OEMs implementing that part into their systems. It would be nice if a manufacturer would put a part like this into the hands of regular customers looking to upgrade their system on a budget, and Toshiba is aiming to do just that with their new RC100 line.

ADATA XPG SX8200 480GB M.2 NVMe Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Jun 16 2018 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We took a look at ADATA’s first NVMe solid state drive the XPG SX8000 back in early 2017. Needless to say it was not the best NVMe drive we tested at the time. Well today we have one of their newest drives the XPG SX8200. It makes use of Silicon Motion’s SM2262 controller paired with Micron’s 64-layer 3D TLC NAND. It seems like ADATA has got things right with this drive as both the controller and the NAND are some of the best currently available. ADATA puts specifications of this drive at 3200 MB/s read and 1700 MB/s write, so it is definitely an improvement over the previous generation. The drive is also backed by a 5-year warranty. Let’s put this drive to the test and see what it can do!"
