The 30GB drive is controlled by a Sandforce 2141 four channel NAND controller and holds a total of four 8GB NAND modules with two on each side of the PCB.

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 9:10A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston`s new HyperX 3K 240GB has been fighting an uphill battle from the day it was first introduced. Drives sporting its integral SandForce SF 2281 have been on the market for the better part of a year and many are well established while selling at lower price points. But Kingston does have some tricks up their collective sleeves which may allow yet another cookie-cutter drive stand apart from the competition.* *"

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB (VTX4-25SAT3-256G)
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 1:27P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ ditched the SandForce controller in their Vertex 4, instead opting for their own Indilinx Everest 2 controller. How does the new controller perform compared to others? Can it carry the Vertex brand to the next level?"

Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB Hard Drive Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 11:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Traditional hard drives may not have the bragging rights of modern SSDs but Western Digital is betting that their new VelociRaptor 1TB will cause buyers to seriously consider stepping back onto the spindle-based bandwagon. Unlike past VelociRaptors, it boasts capacity to match its high performance envelope and comes in at a price that shames most SSDs.* *"

'Review: Crucial M4 SSD 128GB'
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nothing gets my cooling fans going like a new hard drive! With that, I have yet to hop on the SSD wagon, until now. I have resisted as long as possible because even though the benchmarks were there, the prices just were not. Crucial thinks they can make me a believer and is trying to butter my biscuit with the M4 SSD...

OCZ Vertex 4 128GB Solid State Drive @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many of the OCZ models are revisions and improvements of a previous which is the whole reason for the Roman numeral being displayed in the model name. And in the case of the review sample here today we have the Vertex 4. The drive that started it all was a model with had blistering speed (for that time period, 2009) of 280 MB/s and 3K 4K IOPS. Things have really changed as the Vertex 4 brags about speeds of 535 MB/s and 120K 4K IOPS. Advancements and progression is great isn?t it?"

Kingston HyperX 3k 240GB Solid State Drive @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 4:25P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HyperX 3K series is the enthusiast and gamers choice when it comes to Kingston. The drive is offered in four sizes ranging from 90GB to 480GB. Driven by the SATA III protocol and controlled by the ever popular SandForce SF-2281 read and write times are pretty impressive. But it`s the way Kingston`s technology improves the longevity of the drive and the price got us loving the drive."

OCZ Vertex 4 128GB Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Vertex 4 uses Intel 25nm Synchronous Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash and a dual-ARM controller which utilises the SATA 3 (6GB/s) interface. Boasting up to 550MB/s sequential transfer rates and a whopping 5 year-warranty those who are keen Vertex advocates could be in for a treat. So let`s waste no further time and begin our analysis."

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB Solid State Drive Firmware 1.4.1.5 Testing
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 1:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It became clean in our initial test that the Vertex 4 would have to work for the crown. Kings aren`t made overnight so OCZ plotted a course to the title and are working to pick off the competition one by one."

Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB 10K RPM Hard Drive Review @ Techgage
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 9:10A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Need big storage, but can`t compromise on performance? At a time when 1TB SSDs cost as much as an excellent gaming PC, the obvious choice becomes WD`s VelociRaptor - which not only recently received a refresh, but also a 1TB model. Let`s take a look at it, and see how it compares to WD`s other current desktop hard drives."

     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink

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.
