Seagate 600 SSD 240GB RAID Report
     Tue, May 21 2013 | 9:26A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been quite a long time since we`re published a RAID report. Today is Seagate`s big day with four product categories emerging from under the covers. We ended up with a pair for 600 SSD 240GB drives so it was a perfect opportunity to try them in RAID 0."

Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 512GB USB 3 Flash Drive (DTHXP30) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Tue, May 21 2013 | 8:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Normally when a company releases a 512GB USB 3.0 drive we would assume that it was a 2.5 form factor model, often using a mechanical drive but occasionally containing a SSD. Kingston havent taken that route though and instead have managed to fit half a gigabyte of storage into a much more compact package. So compact in fact that they include an attachment so that it can be carried about with us along with our keys."

Seagate Constellation ES.3 4TB Review
     Tue, May 21 2013 | 6:37A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Comparing the Constellation ES.3 to a pair of consumer mechanical drives shows the performance advantage of this drive in just about every test. RAID 0 performance scaled nicely, driving throughput of the Constellation drives to a level on par with some earlier solid state drives. Speed and capacity are what the Constellation drives bring to the table. Surely the 128MB of onboard cache helps the performance along with the 7200RPM spindle speed. As an enterprise class drive it is meant to spend its lifespan of 1.4 million hours dutifully answering data calls."

Samsung 840 SSD 250 GB @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung 840 SSD is the first solid-state drive using TLC flash technology, which promises higher data density, translating in lower overall cost. In our testing we see decent performance, that turns into outstanding when taking into account performance per Dollar and price per GB."

OCZ Vertex 3.20 240 GB Review @ Ocaholic
     Sun, May 19 2013 | 4:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Vertex 3.20 OCZ officially launches their first product that features 20 nanometer NAND from the Intel/Micron joint venture. This step is quite a critical one for OCZ since it means that have to do a balancing act between endurance and price. There are quite a few manufacturers out there in the market that already offer TLC based SSD with significantly lower prices. At this point we just want to tell you, that OCZ does not got for TLC NAND, they stick to MCL chips and we think it`s a good compromise between not only price and endurance but also performance."

Transcend MSA720 128GB mSATA SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, May 18 2013 | 5:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Transcend has a nice mSATA product on their hands with the MSA720 although it could easily get lost in the shuffle of the numerous SF-2281 mSATA drives popping up all over. It doesn`t appear to be as widely available at retailers as some other brands. Performance overall was very good and where it should be based on our experience with this controller/NAND configuration. We saw max read/writes at nearly 560MB/s and 525MB/s respectively and the predictable dip in performance when subjected to incompressible data..."

Crucial M500 480 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sat, May 18 2013 | 8:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink

PNY Prevail Elite 240GB SSD Review
     Fri, May 17 2013 | 1:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With all the talk about TLC, 20nm and other new forms of flash that reduce the number of P/E cycles - it`s nice to see one company fight against the flow. PNY`s Prevail Elite is a 10K P/E cycle SSD that uses a LSI SF-2200 Series controller."

Seagate Thin SSHD 500GB Full Review - Third Generation Hybrid
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 5:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seagate appears to be leading the way in the mobile Hybrid drive market. Each and every generation has pushed the envelope further and come closer to native SSD speeds. The catch is those speeds are only attained for data that is in the cache, and the meager 8GB of flash seems to be holding these devices back when in the hands of more demanding power users with heavier workloads."

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.
