SSD NEWS: Strontium Hawk 120GB SSD Review - Exclusive Testing of SK Hynix First SSD Release
     Sun, Sep 23 2012 | 4:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year, SK Hynix announced that they would be manufacturing their own consumer SSDs and followed that with the purchase of Link A Media Devices and their LM8700 controller, a controller which has already proving itself to be one of the top in the industry. Today, we are going to bring you an exclusive review of the fruit of SK Hynix` labors, the Strontium Hawk Series 120GB SSD and, as surprising as it may seem, this SSD is LSI SandForce Driven through and through. The production of a non-LAMD based SSD for Hynix is actually not that shocking as an exclusive contract between Corsair and LAMD was in place long before the Hynix purchase. The length of this contract is not known, however, it accounts for probably one of the smartest moves made by Corsair to date. The performance of their newly released LAMD controlled Neutron Series has taken the industry by storm and can be seen in our recent review of both the Neutron and Neutron GTX."

ADATA SX900 128GB SSD Review
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 5:56P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the ADATA SX900 128GB SSD, we got to see results that came really close to what the drive was rated at. Our fastest readings peaked at a little over 550MB/s read and 510MB/s write. The testing hit the specified read figure, but came short by only about 10MB/s for the write testing. At a price of about $110, the drive offers good performance at a cost a little bit lower than other drives of similar performance."

Corsair Neutron 240GB SSD Review - Link_A_Media Controller @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair touts the Neutron 240GB drive as reaching max performance numbers of 555 MB/s reads and 370 MB/s writes which we found to be spot on for the ATTO benchmark and not far off on the other tests. Given that performance is not impacted by data compressibility, that`s to be expected as well as solid performance numbers in the real world tests. We didn`t spot anything amiss in any of the numbers and general usage of the drive in Windows yielded positive results with no hint of stuttering, lagging or BSOD`s. TRIM and idle garbage collection seem to be working fine as well so no worries there. Overall, our first impressions are very positive..."

Review: OCZ Agility 4 256 GB @ Ocaholic
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 11:44A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Right after the Vertex 4, OCZ released the Agility 4. Traditionally the Agility series is a bit slower than the Vertex series but therefore they charge less for these drive. Never the less, at 410 Megabyte per second sequential write, 420 Megabyte per second sequential read as well as 48`000 IOPS randon read and 85`000 IOPS random write the drive is everything but slow."

ADATA XPG SX900 Solid State Drive @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 5:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until recently, all SandForce-based solid state drive storage products came with a reserved NAND flash capacity referred to as `Over Provisioning`, used for low-level tasks by the SSD controller. Available now with the ADATA XPG SX900 series, a LSI-SandForce 2281-based solid state drive, capacity grows 7% larger thanks to new firmware that specifies binary capacity points while preserving performance. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the value-priced 256GB ADATA XPG SX900 SSD (model ASX900S3-256GM-C)."

OCZ's Vertex 4 SSD Revisited
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in April, we ran a pair of OCZ Vertex 4 SSDs (256GB and 512GB) through the benchmark grinder to see what they could do... Today, we’re testing another brother in the family, the 128GB OCZ Vertex 4. When we first tested the aforementioned drives, we found that the latest generation of the Vertex series delivered somewhat uneven performance. In some workloads, the drives more or less smoked the competition, while they stumbled a bit in others. The bottom line was that the OCZ Vertex 4 SSDs were mostly impressive, but they didn’t demonstrate quite the upgrade from the previous-generation Vertex 3s that we would have liked. Between then and now, however, OCZ has tended to the Vertex 4 SSD line by upgrading its firmware. On the pages ahead we’ll get a gander at how the updated 128GB OCZ Vertex 4 stacks up against other drives with similar capacities and see if it can demonstrate a greater performance enhancement over the competition than the 256GB and 512GB versions did. We’ll also check in on how (or if) pricing has changed over the last few months...

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.
