Corsair Accelerator 30GB SSD Cache Drive Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 9:09A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair`s Accelerator 30GB is being introduced into a market that`s found respect for once-lowly cache drives. Ringing in at just $60, this SSD isn`t meant as a stand alone solution since it is supposed to link up with your hard drive and provide increased system responsiveness."

SanDisk Extreme 240GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 11:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* *In a market filled with high end SSD`s, it may at first look like SanDisk`s new Extreme 240GB would have a tough time of things. However, with a price of under $190 and performance that competes with some of the best drives currently available, it is sure to stand out for all of the right reasons.* *"

Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD Full Review - Samsung Ups the Ante
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 11:06A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a faster, more optimized ARM Cortex R4 controller and NAND flash pushing data at 400 Mbps per channel, the Samsung 840 Pro has risen the bar yet another notch even while the competition was still trying to catch up to the 830 Series. If pricing can achieve parity with other SSDs out there, Samsung is sure to have a winner on its hands. The non-pro variant of the 840 will utilize TLC flash, which should offer a decent reduction in cost/GB for a minor dip in performance and endurance, which promises to make some form of 840 available to anyone seeking performance in the 100,000 IOPS range."

Western Digital RAID Edition line
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After perhaps a longer than expected wait, Western Digital has released a 4TB hard disk in the form of its new RE series. RE drives have always carried a 'faster' track geometry than their consumer units, and this same case applies here. A heavier head pack resulted in slightly higher seek times, but our sample was able to keep random access performance in check and turn in some of the best file copy performance numbers we've seen from a spinning disk to date. Here's hoping we see the 4TB capacity point trickle down to the Red and Green lines soon!"

Transcend SSD320 256GB SSD Review
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today Chris follows up the Transcend SSD720 review with the mainstream model, the SSD320. The SSD320 pairs asynchronous flash with the same SandForce controller found in the flagship 720 model. This combination reduces the total cost, but does it also significantly reduce performance?"

Micron RealSSD P320h PCI Express SSD Review
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of the PCIe SSD cards on the market today, with the exception of products from Fusion-io, still rely on SATA or SAS-based NAND controllers to interface on the backend of the device to the NAND array. PCIe cards from OCZ, Intel, LSI and others use controllers from LSI SandForce or the like. Fusion-io was the first company to introduce a true native PCI Express to NAND processor employed in their products, though Micron has also been cooking up their own native PCIe SSD technology for some time now. Today we're looking at the Micron P320h, a PCI Express SSD that was introduced to the market well over a year ago and has actually been shipping to OEM customers for some time, but is just now hitting the market for general availability. Micron partnered with IDT, a veteran semiconductor manufacturer out of San Jose that specializes high speed serial switching and memory interface technology. A match made in high bandwidth heaven, between a bellwether memory giant and a cutting-edge high speed logic manufacturer? Perhaps. Read on as we find out.

240GB SanDisk Extreme Sold State Drive Review
     Mon, Oct 15 2012 | 3:19P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The focus of this review is a laptop cooling pad from Glacialtech called the Igloo Pad Series R15. Like most notebook cooling stands, the device consists of an elevated, slightly angled platform with a large vented top surface and embedded fan that gently directs a constant steam of cool air at the base of the notebook."

Micron P320h HHHL 700GB PCIe Enterprise SSD Review - Unbelievable IOPS and Absurd Endurance
     Mon, Oct 15 2012 | 9:25A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Micron P320h HHHL (Half-Height Half-Length) is a Gen 2.1 PCIe SSD capable of churning out 785K 4K random read IOPS and a little over 200K 4K random write IOPS at steady state. With Micron`s stash of SLC NAND flash memory, their custom controller, and some great command line and GUI tools, This PCIe SSD is ready to compete. Having had the P320h in our hands for several months now, it`s been a long process getting the P320h to this point, so it`s a pleasure to finally have the opportunity to see if the wait was worth it."

ADATA SX300 128GB mSATA SSD Review
     Sun, Oct 14 2012 | 9:42A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The closest apples to apples comparisons I was able to see came from the small file read/write tests where the drive`s bandwidth isn`t capped by the SATA2 interface. In these tests, we find the ADATA SX300 mSATA SSD to be matching up quite well with the other top competitors. The SandForce controller is certainly an excellent medium for excellent drive performance, even if limited by a SATA2 port on a SATA3 drive. Moving to an SSD on a laptop, in particular, creates a much better experience with must faster startup and shutdown times and improved battery life."

Posted by: STAFF
Corsair`s Neutron GTX SSD uses a new Link A Media SSD controller, which is a great addition to a market that`s full of SandForce and Marvell drives. The SSD performs very well in our real-life testing, we also added a new MySQL Enterprise benchmark to the test suite."

Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB SSD
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" What I do really like about the Corsair Neutron GTX is that its performance is always predictable. There is no need to worry if the SSD will slow down when faced with writing incompressible data, it simply won’t. In fact, I’m quite sure that is the reason that the Corsair Neutron GTX and the OCZ Vertex 4 stand head and shoulders above the other SSDs in this article "

SSD demand disappoints thus far in 2012
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Demand for both integrated solid-state drives (SSD) and standalone ones has been a disappointment thus far in the second half of 2012, according to industry observers. Neither ultrabook sales nor seasonal factors have played a catalyst for the market.

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.
