     Sun, Oct 28 2012 | 3:53P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at the StarTech mSATA to 2.5 SATA enclosure. With this, you are able to run an mSATA drive in a PC that only supports standard SATA. And because it is a 2.5 form factor, you can mount it just like a regular drive."

OCZ Technology: From SSDs to Layoffs @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Oct 27 2012 | 4:34P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once upon a time between 2004-2006, OCZ was a well-known manufacturer of high-end memory components and power supply units that sold under the motto Founded by Enthusiasts, for Enthusiasts. During the peak economy in 2007, OCZ Technology CEO Ryan Petersen proved his devotion to enthusiasts by purchasing PC Power & Cooling (May 2007), swiftly followed by elite system-builder Hypersonic PC (October 2007). Through the years that followed, OCZ`s brand name would successfully sell NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards, overclocker heatsinks, premium thermal pastes, hardcore gaming peripherals, and even a mind-controlled Neural Impulse Actuator (NIA). On March 2008, OCZ Technology revealed the industry`s first consumer Solid State Drive - the apex of their dedication towards high-performance computer hardware enthusiasts. The future looked so very bright, until stock value became the mission. As of 26 October 2012, many of the great minds behind OCZ`s enthusiast movement were without work."

Silicon Power Diamond D05 Limited Edition 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Sat, Oct 27 2012 | 3:53P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although USB Flash Drive prices have hit an all-time low the really large capacity models (128GB and above) are still not really cheap and thus not easy to for everyone to acquire. Luckily hard disk drive prices have also dropped quite a bit lately (always compared to the prices we had due to the floods in TW) and so right now the most cost-effective way for someone to carry large data backups around are 2.5 portable HDDs and as always there are countless models out there for someone to choose from with capacities of up to 2TB. However the enclosures of most 2.5 models are quite standard in design so we rarely see something different which could blend in better with our desks. Well it seems that our friends over at Silicon Power also believe that all portable HDDs shouldn`t look the same and their latest Diamond D05 Limited Edition 500GB USB 3.0 HDD is a statement to that since it`s guaranteed to get you into the Christmas spirit."

Patriot Gauntlet 320 Wireless HDD PCGTW320S @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 9:25A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`ve ever wanted a compact storage device that was small, had its own power supply, and wirelessly accessible, then the Patriot Gauntlet 320 fits the build perfectly. While capable of connecting via SuperSpeed USB 3.0, the Patriot Gauntlet is so much more. Designed as a portable hard disk drive with 320GB of storage space, 5.5-hour lithium-ion battery, and and integrated 150Mbps Wi-Fi b/g/n access point, the Patriot Gauntlet 320 (PCGTW320S) simultaneously streams media to up to five devices.

The Truth About SSD Performance Numbers @ TechwareLabs
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 9:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As someone who has purchased many different storage devices (HDD, SSD, flash drive, etc.), I have experienced first hand the confusion that can come from all the numbers we are bombarded with. Manufacturers throw numbers at us to back up their lofty claims of ever increasing performance. But what do all of these things mean? Some people may give up and just get the one that has the largest numbers plastered on the box. Hopefully after reading this article, that will not be you."

OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SATA III 2.5 SSD Review @ Madshrimps
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 9:25A | Hard Drives | PermaLink

The Vertex 4 SSD from OCZ no longer uses a SandForce processor, but an Indilinx Everest 2 one, meaning that we do not longer have a lot of space used for over-provisioning and we sh"

OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB Solid State Hard Drive SSD Review
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Vertex 4 is a departure from OCZ's tried and true model of using third party controllers and firmware for its SSDs. Taking control of the firmware with the Vertex 4 gives OCZ the ability to tune the SSDs for speed and performance at lower queue depths and optimize for low latency. We test to see if the Indilinx Infused Everest 2 Platform delivers.

A quick look at the data on Apples Fusion Drive
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 9:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The biggest differences are in that since it`s not a mirrored hybrid solution, where the SSD space is not available, and a failure of the HDD causes loss of all data. Fusion Drive combines the two volumes and *adds* the space together, and the apps or files will sit on either device (but not both). All files written go to the SSD first and are later shifted to the HDD in the background. This is actually a very smart way to handle things."

SSD NEWS: PNY XLR8 Pro 480GB SSD Review - Capacity Price and Performance
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 8:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our SSD review today examines the new PNY XLR8 Pro 6Gbps SSD and one might think that, after reviewing SSDs for six years and having somewhere in the area of 100TB of SSD storage in the office, receiving a 480GB SSD in the mail wouldn`t be exciting. In that, you would be wrong. As much as getting such an SSD in your hands would be exciting for anyone, the truth is that I race to the front each and every time a courier shows up. It`s in the blood I think. I truly love SSD technology."

Samsung 840 Series 250GB SSD Full Review - Time for some TLC
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 1:51P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The biggest consideration you have to make when judging the 840 is that it`s a budget version of a Pro-level SSD. Triple Level Cell flash is slower to write and provides less endurance as compared to MLC units, and while the 840 does perform quite well as a first generation TLC SSD, there are several areas where it has no choice but to be outmaneuvered by the MLC-equipped competition. If you think back a few years, you`d realize it took MLC technology a while to catch up with the speeds of SLC. This is simply a necessary repetition of the past, in the interest of creating cheaper SSDs for the future."

SSD NEWS: Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD Review - Performance Value Battery Life and Untouchable IOPS

Posted by: STAFF
Our report on the Samsung 840 Pro SSD begins post take off from Pearson Int`l Airport in Toronto and on route to Seoul, South Korea. Having had this SSD in our hands for some time, even the enormity of the Samsung 840 family release celebration cannot overshadow the performance of what just might be the hottest solid state drive to hit the streets to date. How does just under an extra hour laptop life and 100,000 IOPS grab you to start?"
