WD Blue And SanDisk Ultra 3D SSD Review: Fast
     Thu, Sep 14 2017 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
WD recently updated its mainstream Blue line of solid state drives with new 64-layer 3D BiCS NAND flash memory. When we first took a look at the original WD Blue SSD, we found it to be an admirable performer with competitive pricing. This new generation of drives, however, promises better performance and features all of the firmware tweaks and optimizations WD has gleaned over the Blue SSD line’s lifetime. In addition, SanDisk branded versions of the drive are hitting the market as well. Internally the WD Blue with 3D NAND and new SanDisk Ultra 3D are virtually identical, but the drives will target different distribution channels. The WD Blue 3D is for do-it-yourselfers and is headed into the channel, while the SanDisk drives will be available in more traditional retail outlets...

Crucial BX300 Review
     Mon, Sep 11 2017 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Crucial BX300 is available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB and 480GB – we’ve been supplied with the 480GB for testing. Typically, the SATA interface, regardless of the relatively poor performance when compared to PCI-E solutions, is more than enough for a typical user, offering up to 550MB/s transfer speeds; PCI-E SSDs are also more expensive, which adds to the appeal of a SATA SSD.

When Corsair sent us their new Neutron NX500 400GB NVMe PCIe AIC SSD to review we weren’t impressed by what we were seeing from Corsair’s new flagship storage drive. We tried the AIC in all available PCIe slots and saw no change. We 1024K aligned the drive per instructions from Corsair and saw no change. We tried different secure erase methods and again there was no change. So, we changed platforms and saw performance more than double in some areas... Read on to see what happens when we try this drive and another in six different motherboards from Intel and AMD.

ADATA Launches the IM2S3338 and IM2S3334Industrial-GradeM.2 Solid State Drives
     Mon, Sep 04 2017 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of highperformance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products,today launched the industrial-grade IM2S3338 M.2 2280 and IM2S3334 M.2 2242 SATA 6Gbps solid state drives. Both utilize the compact M.2 form factor for an easy fit in various installations and transfer data at up to 560MB/s read and 525MB/s write. They use durable and long-lasting 3D NAND, MLC/TLC for the IM2S3334 and TLC on the IM2S3338. The two drives are carefully tested for survivability in extreme temperatures and humidity as well as resistance to shocks and vibration. ADATA integrates LDPC error correction to promote data integrity plus DRAM and SLC caching to help sustain peak performance on both model ranges.

Ever-expanding industrial storage portfolio ADATA continues to place an emphasis on serving industrial and commercial applications such as manufacturing, surveillance, retail, transportation, and medical care. The IM2S3338 and IM2S3334 provide additional options, this time in the M.2 form factor. The IM2S3338 uses 3D TLC in capacities from 128GB to 1TB. It delivers 560MB/s read and 520MB/s write. The IM2S3334 carries highly durable 3D MLC NAND in 120GB to 512GB, and 3D TLC in 128GB to 512GB, and runs at up to 560MB/s read and 525MB/s write. Users therefore get a comprehensive range of models to choose from based on required capacity and planned budget.

Built to work hard Like all ADATA industrial-grade SSDs, the new models are tested for wide temperature ranges. The IM2S3334 3D MLC is rated for an extreme -40 to 90 degrees Celsius, while the IM2S3338 can operate in 0 to 70 degrees. Both are certified for 5 to 95 percent relative humidity, 20G vibration resistance, and 1500G/0.5ms shock endurance.

Wealth of added features To boost SSD longevity and data integrity further, all models support S.M.A.R.T diagnostics, wear leveling, EMI protection, and low density parity check error correction. They also provide power fail protection and recovery through onboard capacitor reserves, secure erase for extra confidentiality, and TRIM command for smarter capacity utilization.

HP SSD S700 PRO 1TB Solid State Drive Review
     Fri, Sep 01 2017 | 2:44P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Relative to solid state storage, one terabyte is an enormous amount of near-instant drive space. Adding to its appeal is the cost of solid state technology, which has doubled its storage capacity per dollar from just one year ago. HP suggests top speeds up to 570 MB/s for reads and 525 MB/s writes from their 1TB SSD S700 PRO, which utilizes 3D NAND to deliver impressive storage density and reliability. In this article for Benchmark Reviews, we test the 1TB HP SSD S700 PRO (2.5? SATA model 2LU81AA#ABL) against other solid state drive competition.

ADATA Releases the SE730H 3D NAND USB-C External SSD
     Thu, Aug 31 2017 | 4:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of highperformance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today launched the SE730H external solid state drive, an update of the best-selling SE730. The SE730H performs at 500MB/s read and write, and moves to 3D TLC NAND for increased durability and longevity, while remaining one of the most compact external SSDs worldwide. It has a reversible USB-C connector for greater convenience, and a stylish metallic design. Data transfers use USB 3.1 Gen 2 (up to 10Gbps). Importantly, the SE730H meets IEC IP68 dust and water proof requirements, as well as military-grade shock mitigation standards. Available in 256GB and 512GB, the SE730H is Windows, Mac OS, and Android compatible for seamless cross-platform usage.

www.pcstats.com

Super compact with the benefit of 3D NAND While previous generation SE730 drives were only available in 250GB, the shift to high quality 3D TLC NAND has allowed ADATA to offer the SE730H in up to 512GB. At the same time, the SE730H maintains is compact footprint as the smallest device in its class (external USB-C 3D NAND SSD). It weighs a mere 33g, and users can choose from gold or red metallic color schemes. With 3D TLC NAND, the SE730H delivers more than just bigger capacity: 3D NAND is also around 25% longer-lasting than 2D NAND, and more reliable for the life of the product while consuming less power, a plus for paired device batteries. In terms of performance, the SE730H reaches 500MB/s read and write, or about five times the speed of external mechanical drives.

With reversible USB-C, connecting devices no longer involves checking plug alignment, as there is no up or down. The SE730H connects to USB-C capable devices the first time, every time. It does so with support for USB 3.1 Gen 2, or real USB 3.1 – which allows for up to 10Gbps as opposed to 5Gbps on USB 3.0/USB 3.1 Gen 1. At those speeds, a 5GB file takes just 16 seconds to move, and a big AAA game requires less than a minute. ADATA includes a USB-C to USB-C cable in the box.

Small but mighty tough on multiple platforms The SE730H passes IEC IP68 tests, meaning complete dust-tight protection and water proofing to 60 minutes in 1.5 meters of water. It also meets MIL-STD-810 516.6 impact and shock resistance requirements, resulting in a product that can easily handle active lifestyles to keep stored data safe. The SE730H works in plug n play with no drivers needed on Windows, Mac OS, and Android, allowing for easy content sharing and portability across devices, from smartphones to desktops.
