TSSDR Top SSD Recommendations For May 2013 - Samsung TLC Dethrones the SanDisk SSD Family
     Thu, May 02 2013 | 9:55P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those of us close to SSDs watch e-tailer customer reviews very carefully as they can provide a very accurate view of SSDs from those that matter most, SSD owners. In the case of the Samsung 840 Series TLC SSD, its success is counted in 446 of 470 reviews as being 4-star or higher, which seems to dispel original predictions many had of the success of TLC memory. Let`s take a look at our top SSD choices for May 2013 along with our thoughts on each."

Kingston 64gb DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Generation 3 (G3) Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, May 02 2013 | 5:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For todays review Kingston has sent over their latest USB 3.0 flash drive the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Generation 3 (G3). This model is Kingstons latest USB 3.0 portable drive, which features data transfer speeds of up 250 MB/s read and 70 Mb/s write. From its name its the next version of the DataTraveler Ultimate line and is designed to work with both Windows and OS X out of the box. Of course a USB 3.0 port is needed to take full advantage of its speeds but the flash drive is backwards compatible with USB 2.0."

Icy Dock ICYRaid MB662U3-2S Dual-HDD Enclosure Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Apr 29 2013 | 5:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Icy Dock ICYRaid MB662U3-2S, unlike other external USB 3.0 enclosures has the hardware capability to run drives in RAID, independent of the PC. The ICYRaid MB662U3-2S replaces the discontinued MB662UEAB-2S which used the older USB 2.0 and FireWire connection with a much faster and more widely used USB 3.0 port. Users can install a pair of two 3.5 HDDs up to 4TB in capacity each for a total of up to 8GB of storage inside the Icy Dock MB662U3-2S. To cool both drives when they are continuously used, the ICYRaid MB662U3-2S is equipped with a 40mm Sunon MAGLev fan that operates silently and can be adjust through a built-in fan controller. Users can configure drives installed inside the MB662U3-2S in RAID 0, RAID 1, BIG, or JBOD just by simply moving the RAID toggle switch and pressing the reset button while the enclosure is on. No further steps are required, other than formatting the drives or adjust the partition when necessary of course. The Icy Dock ICYRAid MB662U3-2S is compatible with either Mac or PC and comes with a three-year limited warranty."

Buffalo MiniStation Thunderbolt SSD HD-PATU3 Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sat, Apr 27 2013 | 4:27P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Buffalo MiniStation Thunderbolt SSD HD-PATU3 Review @ HardwareHeaven.com So it is always great when we see a portable drive that contains an SSD and uses USB 3.0, both of which should remove the USB 2.0 connector and mechanical drive bottlenecks which we regularly see. Thats where the MiniStaion SSD Edition enters, but Buffalo havent stopped there, they also provide a Thunderbolt interface for Mac users (and those who have an appropriate motherboard for PC)."

ASUS RAIDR 240 GB - Picture Madness @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Apr 26 2013 | 12:22P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the RAIDR ASUS has their first ever SSD in their portfolio. The company decided to develop this enthusiast product under their ROG brand and what you get is quite a decent little PCI Express SSD. There are two SandForce SF-2281 controllers and 240 Gigabyte of Toggle NAND from Toshiba, which should boast up to 830 MB/s sequential read and up to 810 MB/s sequential write speeds. Regarding random IOPS, ASUS claim the drive can hit up to 100`000 for both random read as well as random write. We didn`t want to waist any time and took a few pictures from this little baby."

ADATA DashDrive Elite UE700 USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 12:22P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new DashDrive UE700 is the latest brainchild of ADATA. Using USB 3.0 technology, the UE700 was designed for faster transfer speed of stored data at 200MB/s read and 100MB/s write. This is sure to be one of the faster flash drives we have ever tested, probably even the fastest. With such great advertised speeds, the UE700 is also a nice piece of visual work. Sleek and functional, it could very well be your next flash drive."

OCZ Vertex 3.20 240GB Full Review - Vertex 3 Pushes 20nm Flash
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 6:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ has done a lot of restructuring as of late. They have pared down their product lines and cut away some `excess` divisions in order to focus on a core group of products. This fared well with their launch of the Vector - a very capable drive which continues to outperform to this day. That said, the Vertex 3.20 in its current form seems out of place. It lacks the performance of other SandForce-based units and even underperforms when compared to competition using the same IMFT flash, yet it is priced only marginally lower than their own flagship Vector."

Vantec NexStar WiFi Hard Drive Dock Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Apr 19 2013 | 10:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hard drive docks are nothing new. They have been around for quite some time and we have reviewed a handful of them. The only thing that has really changed in the way of hard drive docks is the connections. When USB 3.0 came out we saw a new round of hard drive docks with the new, faster connection. So what is next for hard drive docks? Vantec seems to think WiFi is. It makes sense, we have so many wireless devices now with tablets and smartphones ruling our lives. So why not be able to access the information on any hard drive without having to have a USB connection on your device? This is where the NexStar WiFi Hard Drive Dock comes in. It is your normal hard drive dock supporting 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives and has a USB 3.0 connection, but it also has WiFi so you can use an iOS or Android device to connect to it and access your files. Lets dive in!"
