Intel SSD 600p Series 512GB NVMe SSD Review
     Thu, Dec 08 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking for a low cost M.2 NVMe drive for your desktop PC or laptop you are looking at the right review. Intel recently released the SSD 600P Series drives that use the M.2 2280 PCIe 3 x4 (single-sided) interface and is one of the very first NVMe drives to feature 3D TLC NAND Flash memory. Intel went with the Silicon Motion SM2260 controller on this particular series and pair it with Intel 384Gb 32-layer 3D TLC NAND Flash memory. The result was an affordable client storage drive series that Intel hopes will lure some people away from the high-end SATA III SSD market and over to PCIe M.2 segment. With pricing starting at just $55.99 for a 128GB drive and topping out at $289.99 for the 1TB drive, the Intel SSD 600p series might do just that...

MyDigitalSSD Boost 1TB USB 3.1 Portable SSD Review
     Mon, Dec 05 2016 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The joys of traveling, may it be far or near, can be highly increased when you have all your data with you where you go. Portable storage usually has the downside and that it that it isn’t as fast as internal storage. As such, it can be a pain to wait for the data transfers to finish. Not so for the portable drive that I’m testing today, the MyDigitalSSD Boost. It has both the capacity, up to 1TB, and the speed to blow anything out of the way that other portable drives can offer.

On the inside there is a quad core SoC making sure there is enough processing power and apart from that there is a USB C interface for quick transfers. Drobo is keen on making their DAS as easy to use as possible. One key feature is the possibility to add disk drives of different sizes to an array.
