ioSwitch Raijin M.2 NGFF PCIe SSD Review
     Mon, Dec 09 2013 | 11:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The advent of M.2 SSDs holds the promise of eliminating the SATA bottleneck and, while it may not seem that big of a deal for the typical consumer, improved performance to a media professional is pure gold. Faster transfer speeds translate into quicker job completion which realizes increased business and higher revenue. Although we have had M.2 SSDs in hand for some time now, the thrill of the chase is always there when watching to see who will get such and such a product to market, and into consumer hands first. When it comes to M.2 SSDs, short of those of us having the ioSwitch Raijin in hand, nobody would ever have guessed"

WD Black 2 Dual Drive @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Dec 09 2013 | 9:15A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I dont know about you, but when I build a new PC I basically plan for an SSD for my operating system and then a second drive or more for my Steam and other files. This has been fairly consistent in my builds from the Fridge with its double SSDs and double spinning drives all the way to the most recent lunchbox 3 with its SSD and hard drive. I even do the same thing on my gaming laptop. Sadly, there are a lot of people who just cant do this with their laptops do to only having one drive space. Western Digital surprised us late last week with a game changing drive that has that situation in mind without going with a hybrid setup. That drive is their new WD Black 2 Dual Drive, a single drive that houses a 120GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive."

News: The SSD Endurance Experiment: Testing data retention at 300TB
     Fri, Dec 06 2013 | 9:15A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`re slamming six SSDs with a nearly continuous stream of writes to see what happens as the flash wears out. Our subjects have now reached the 300TB mark, so it`s time for another health and performance check-up. We`ve also added an unpowered retention test to see if the drives can hold data when left unplugged for a few days."

M.2 NGFF PCIe SSD Adapter Overview Birds Eye View of Our M.2 NGFF SSD Test Hardware
     Wed, Dec 04 2013 | 9:15A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past while, there seems to be an increased interest in our M.2 SSD testing, whether it be with respect to our thoughts on M.2 placement in the industry, ideas on how it best be introduced, or just plain Where can I get a M.2 SSD? concerns. Unfortunately, we cannot elaborate on purchase just yet but we thought we might be able to display a bit of the hardware that we use behind the scenes for our own testing."

     Wed, Dec 04 2013 | 5:33A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA has been in the business of developing memory and storage solutions for a dozen years and, in the process, has earned a reputation for producing high-quality devices. Its latest addition to the DashDrive lineup is the ADATA HV620 External Hard Drive. The HV620 is currently available in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities.

The SSD Database is Live!
     Sun, Dec 01 2013 | 4:34P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some of you may remember our announcement and implementation of the first SSD DataBase earlier this year, a database that saw just under 100K in visitors for the short time it was up. This database was the brain child (and a great deal of work) of Rick Mauer and we thank him for that work and envisioning what may now be the most complete SSD database on the internet, and maybe in the world. Introducing The SSD Database 2.0 by The SSD Review."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
