Corsair Neutron SSDs review: first SSDs with LAMD controller
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's impressive that LAMD is able to join the high-end segment right-away with its first controller in the Corsair Neutron 240GB and the Neutron GTX 240GB SSDs. Looking at the benchmarks, it's clear that their new controller is faster than SandForce, and faster than the previous-generation Marvell. The outstanding performance of the Neutron SSD can be seen in a number of areas. The sequential write speed of the Neutron GTX is very high, for example.

Samsung SSD 840 Pro 256GB review: the fastest SSD currently around
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung SSD 840 Pro is by far the fastest SSD currently around- faster than the OCZ Vertex 4, faster than the Corsair Neutron GTX and faster than the Plextor M5 Pro. Samsung also has a proven track record in terms of reliability and quality, as the Samsung 830 series had very few known issues. History is of course not a guarantee for future success, but there is no reason to think that the new 840 Pro series will be any less dependable.

WD RE 4TB Enterprise-Class HDD Review
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 5:04P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When considering a new storage solution, most users try to find the right balance between speed and capacity. SSDs are super fast, no doubt about it, but an HDD spinning at 7200RPM or 10,000RPM will still offer solid performance, and you have access to dramatically more storage capacity for a far lower cost per GB compared to an SSD. Western Digital’s 4TB WD RE SATA drive certainly satisfies the need for capacity. And at a 7200RPM spindle speed with a SATA 6Gbps interface,64MB of cache, and up to 171MBps sustained transfer rates, the performance balance is there as well. In the enterprise, though, there’s a third consideration that can trump the other two: reliability.

Samsung PM840 SSD 256 Gigabyte - Behold the bringer of IOPS @ ocaholic
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 11:06A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When a manufacturer already has an SSD like the PM830 in its portfolio then a successor must be a highly capable drive to not disappoint users expectations. With the PM840 Samsung wants to offer a new drive which should not only be a worthy successor but also push the boundries a bit further. Reading the specs already is impressive: 540 Megabyte per second sequential read performance, 520 Megabyte per second sequential write and 100`000 IOPS when reading 4 Kilobyte blocks randomly."

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.
