Crucial MX200 1TB & BX100 500GB Series SSD Review
     Fri, Apr 17 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial's SSDs have been among the most reliable and best performing on the market, with last summer's MX100 being the company's greatest hit. Despite offering solid performance even by today's standards, its 'MX200' sucessor arrived only six month later and along with it Crucial also introduced the even more affordable BX100 series and a new SSD toolbox software. On today's menu is the beefy 1TB MX200 ($470) along with the 500GB BX100 ($190).

OCZ Vector 180 480GB Solid State Drive Review
     Wed, Apr 15 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have had a look at the 960GB capacity of the new Vector 180 series already and today it’s time to take a closer look at the smaller sibling with 480GB capacity. The new mainstream and entry-level server SSD is packed full of great features and performance, and the 480GB capacity will probably hit the sweet spot for most people interested in this drive.

Intel SSD 750 Series 1.2TB PCIe X4 Card Review
     Tue, Apr 14 2015 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to pricing the SSD 750 Series isn’t cheap and that is hardly going to shock anyone, after all this is an enthusiast/workstation series. The 400GB model has an MSRP of $390 and the 1.2TB model that we reviewed has an MSRP of $1030. That means the 400GB works out at a cost of $0.97 per gigabyte and the 1.2TB model $0.85 per gigabyte. Those were decent prices a few years ago, but today with SSDs such as the Samsung SSD 850 Pro 1TB fetching $0.55 per gigabyte, that makes the Intel SSD 750 series rather expensive.

Samsung 850 EVO mSATA and M.2 SSD Review
     Mon, Apr 13 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Powered by their own 32-layer 3D V-NAND technology, the Samsung SSD 850 EVO replaces the 840 EVO solid state drive and delivers up to twice the density and write speed of traditional 20nm planar NAND flash components. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the 250GB Samsung SSD 850 EVO mSATA drive against the fastest solid state drives available.

Samsung 850 EVO mSATA and M.2 SSD Review
     Mon, Apr 13 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in December, Samsung launched the 850 EVO series of SSDs in the standard 2.5” form factor. Along with the 850 PRO, these were the first SSDs to utilize Samsung's new 32-layer 3D V-NAND technology. When combined with Samsung's TurboWrite technology, the 850 EVO's can attain some amazing data transfer speeds. Samsung is now expanding its lineup of 850 EVO form factors to include M.2 and mSATA versions. We just recently published a review of the M.2 version, and today we have on hand both 120GB and 1TB models of the mSATA 850 EVO to give a testing bench test drive.

Crucial BX100 1TB Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Apr 11 2015 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Not that long ago we took a look at Crucial’s MX200 solid state drive, which is set to be their high-performance drive for 2015. They also sent us over their new BX100 solid state drive. This drive is their cost-effective solution that is aggressively priced and Crucial hopes it will get solid state drives in the hands of more people. How aggressively priced is it? Well the 1TB drive that we are taking a look at today is selling at my favorite online retailer for $374.99, which makes it only $0.37 per GB. The BX100 is powered by the Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller and features Micron 16nm synchronous MLC NAND. The 1TB version features sequential read and write speeds of 535 MB/s and 450 MB/s respectively. Let’s take a closer look…"

Corsair Voyager Air 2 1TB Wireless Hard Drive Review
     Fri, Apr 10 2015 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the modern computer user a smartphone or tablet is a vital accessory: sure the desktop PC is great for a lot of things the notebook, tablet and smartphone aren’t, but some times you just need to get away from the desk. Yet one of the main issues with mobile computing form factors is that they lack the storage capacity of the desktop form factor- most consumer tablets and smartphones will sport less than 64GB which is hardly a mind blowing amount of storage. How do you get around that? Well cloud storage is one option but generally speaking you will always be fairly limited by your ability to upload to it, even if download is fairly snappy. A better option is network attached storage (NAS) but even that can be fairly cumbersome and still isn’t portable, unless you’re fairly technical and are capable of setting up your own internet gateways for access outside your home. When you’ve exhausted those options the new Corsair Voyager Air 2 offers a smart alternative. The Voyager Air 2 is, quite obviously, Corsair’s second iteration of the Voyager Air product line. The new variant comes with some improvements over the past generation such as improved software, a redesigned enclosure and DLNA compatibility for improved media accessiblity. It also loses a few things, around 20% of the price and a Gigabit ethernet port. That aside the raw concept is still the same: a battery powered 2.5 inch hard drive enclosure that you connect to directly with WiFi. This connection is made fairly simply as the Voyager Air 2 is capable of broadcasting its own WiFi network and SSID and can accept multiple client connections and numerous simultaneous streams. Indeed it all sounds very exciting so let’s take a look at what the product has to offer in this review.

There is no doubt that the Solid State sector is booming this year, especially in the budget arena. Today we look at the latest budget oriented drive from OCZ - named the 'ARC 100'. This drive is focused on delivering a high 'bang for the buck', priced at $0.50 per GB. OCZ are releasing the ARC 100 in three different flavours - a 120GB, 240GB and 480GB model.

Seagate Barracuda ST5000DM000 5TB Desktop Hard Drive
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 11:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of our readers asked us to look at the Seagate Barracuda ST5000DM000 5TB 3.5-inch internal desktop hard drive as he bought one off of Amazon and was having some performance issues with the drive. We looked into it and discovered that Seagate does not sell an internal 3.5-inch desktop drive on the market. That is strange as we went over to Amazon and found half a dozen retailers selling this particular drive. We got our hands on one of these 5TB drives and tried it out to see what was going on!

OCZ Vector 180 960 Gigabyte Review
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 11:45A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Vector series, OCZ reportedly has drives in their portfolio, which are fast and reliable. Today OCZ is launching their latest model, which goes by the name Vector 180. Compared to the already successful predecessor - Vector 150 - this one should offer even higher sustained performance and apart from that the drive ships with the new management software SSD Guru.

NVMe PCI Express Solid State Drives
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, Intel is taking the wraps off new NVMe PCI Express Solid State Drives, which are the first products with these high speed interfaces that the company has launched specifically for the enthusiast computing and workstation crowds. Historically, Intel's PCI Express-based offerings, like the SSD DC P3700 Series, have been squarely targeted for datacenter or enterprise applications, with price tags to match. However, today Intel is throwing performance enthusiasts another bone with the launch of the Intel SSD 750 series.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
