the phenomenon of PCI-Express SSD’s
     Mon, Feb 08 2016 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve been digging into the phenomenon of PCI-Express SSD’s for a while now, covering Intel’s P3700 drive as well as looking at an assortment of other models available in the market. One that was missing so far, at least from our English language publications, was Samsung’s 950 Pro. We’ve now amended that omission with a full and in-depth review of this NVMe PCIe SSD, that in many ways represents a first in the market and surely is a harbinger of storage products to come.

PNY CS2211 SSD
     Sun, Feb 07 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Running the PHISON PS3110-S10 controller, the PNY CS2211 SSD drive offers the full range of features you’d expect to come in an SSD. The four-year warranty is no joke either, although it’s not hard to stand behind a product boasting 2 million hours mean time between failures. Find out why this drive received our TechwareLabs Gold Hardware Award.

OCZ Trion 150 240GB and 480GB SSD Review
     Sun, Feb 07 2016 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back at launch in July 2015 we reviewed the OCZ Trion 100 SSD’s. These were the first OCZ drives to feature a Toshiba controller and A19 TLC NAND flash. Today we look at the latest iteration of the Trion series, dubbed the ‘Trion 150’. The Trion 150 feature 15nm Toshiba Triple Level Cell TLC NAND and are available in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB and 960GB capacities. OCZ told us that pricing will fall in line with the older Trion 100 drives in the budget sector of the market.

Samsung 950 Pro M.2 NVMe 256GB Review
     Sun, Feb 07 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the 950 Pro Samsung launches an NVMe-SSD for end users. The drive which is lying front of us in this case performs extremely well pumping out up to 2200 MB/s sequentially reading and 900 MB/s sequentially writing. This definitely makes us wonder how much of that horsepower is available in real life.

WD My Passport Ultra Metal Edition 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive
     Sun, Feb 07 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We’ve been fans of WD’s My Passport portable hard drives for years. These drives are a great companion for your Ultrabook where hard drive space is limited and are extremely reliable as well. WD’s latest iteration of the drive is the My Passport Ultra, which is a USB 3.0 portable hard drive. They were nice enough to send us over their Metal Edition, which has a very sexy Aluminum design. Not only is this going to look great, but it will add extra protection to the drive as well. The drive features a very fast USB 3.0 connection so your transfers will take no time at all. The drive comes with the WD SmartWare Pro backup software so you can setup and schedule local as well as cloud backups with no problem at all. Let’s take a look at the My Passport Ultra Metal Edition and see what it can do!"

PNY CS2211 SSD Review (240GB/480GB)
     Fri, Feb 05 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just last week we announced PNY's latest SSD products for the new year, the CS1311 and CS2211. It just so happens that today we have some in our hands for review. The CS1311 is your basic, entry level SSD jam packed with TLC NAND for those looking for a cheap SSD upgrade from an HDD. As you may have noticed as of late, many companies have been following this trend to help push SSD adaptation to the masses, however, for enthusiasts and gamers, these lower performance SSDs are something which we avoid. For those of us who need more performance, the PNY CS2211 is a mainstream offering developed specifically for us, the gamer and enthusiast crowd. With a sleek design and great performance numbers on the spec sheet, the CS2211 should hold its own very well in today's review. But, let's not jump to any conclusions just yet, continue on as we poke and prod the new PNY CS2211 to see how it compares to the rest of the competition!

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.
