CoreRise Comay Venus 3S 120GB SATA3 MLC Synchronous SSD Review @ ModSynergy.com [Updated Re-Release]
     Fri, Aug 24 2012 | 9:20A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Always looking to review the products from companies that most have never heard and also looking for the unique products that customers might want to own, I jumped at the chance in reviewing one of CoreRise`s newest Consumer Grade SATA 3 offering, the Comay Venus 3S 120GB 2.5 SATA III MLC Synchronous NAND Flash SSD. Sporting 120GB of Micron MLC Synchronous NAND flash memory, and utilizing the SandForce SF-2281 SSD processor, read on to know more about the CoreRise brand, what you can expect from their SSD`s, and if SSD manufacturers should take notice with the CoreRise Comay movement. Updated with new Anvil Storage Utilities benchmarks with compressible and incompressible tests...Can you say 90,000+ IOPS?"

Icy Dock MB080U3S-1SB Blizzard & MB559U3S-1S Ultra Slim External Hard Drive Enclosure Review
     Thu, Aug 23 2012 | 10:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall both Icy Dock enclosures faired quite well. On eSATA they were the fastest comparing to an internal SATA connection. For USB 3.0 they both were on par or fairly faster than the Thermaltake offerings we compared against. One thing of note was the temperatures. When the Icy Dock Blizzard was put against the Thermaltake Max 5G, the active cooling features of the Blizzard were cooler by 2C, which in the world of computing are a big difference."

OCZ Agility 4 256 GB @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Aug 23 2012 | 10:05A | 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."

OCZ Agility 4 Solid State Drives
     Wed, Aug 22 2012 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid state drives from OCZ Vertex 4 family have been continuously praised, but their price is still far from affordable. However, OCZ also has a less expensive product in their lineup using the same design, but built with asynchronous flash memory. This is Agility 4 family. Is this one just as attractive as the Vertex 4? Let’s find out!

Cooler Master USNA 120 AC/DC Power Adapter @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, Aug 21 2012 | 10:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having a nice universal AC/DC adapter around is a good thing. In my case I have had some go bad an having an extra around eliminated all the pain and hassle going out and having to look for a new one. Another reason I keep an extra around is to keep having to unplug and re-plug when I take my laptop around the house. Yes, I am just that lazy. And plus what if you lose one? Whatever the reason for you to need a new adapter, Cooler Master has one for you to consider. The USNA 120 is the highest wattage model they now produce. Able to product an output voltage up to 20 Vda and 5.79v, the unit should be able to power up almost any small portable device you have. And"

[Tech ARP] Western Digital VelociRaptors Vs. Solid State Drives
     Sat, Aug 18 2012 | 4:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently reviewed both the latest *Western Digital VelociRaptor * and the *Intel 520 Series Solid State Drive *, and it got us thinking about a direct comparison. Both drives may be fundamentally different in the way they work but they actually target the same market - the hardware performance enthusiast! With graphics cards and processors so powerful these days and DDR3 SDRAM so cheap, the only thing holding back a system is often the storage subsystem. Hence, there is an increase emphasis on the performance of the hard disk drive, or its rival, the solid state drive. Many have said that the days of the hard disk drive is waning, and the age of the solid state drive has begun. But is the hard disk drive really on the way out? That is what this small comparison is about."

Kingston SSDNow V200 128GB Review
     Fri, Aug 17 2012 | 12:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The results are rather all over the board with this SSD. Start up/shut down is very quick and the PCMark Vantage tests show more real world figures. Pairing this with the inherent reliability of Kingston products (especially with this drive geared towards consumers), you get a reasonably quick and reliable SSD for a good price. However, the asynchronous memory gives the drive a little bit of a disadvantage in the low-level synthetic benchmarks. However, the asynchronous memory saves costs, which can in turn allow for a more inexpensive drive."

Posted by: STAFF
Ever wanted a guide on hard drive performance, where you can compare the performance of a wide range of hard drives? With 43 hard disk drives for comparison, the guide is fleshing out real nicely. In this performance comparison guide, we will test and compare the performance of all the hard drives we can get our hands on.

Areca ARC-1882i PCIe 3.0 RAID Controller Review

Putting new technology to work is the Areca way. The name might have stayed the same, but this new ARC-1882i gets a boost in performance from its PCIe 3.0 connector."

SSD NEWS: Intel Finally Announces That TRIM Is Supported In RAID 0 With Intel RST Ver. 11 and Newer
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 5:48P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well it is finally official! Not five minutes ago, we received word from Intel that Intel RST drivers Ver. 11 and newer offers TRIM support for RAID 0, but ONLY on MS Windows 7 operating systems with Intel 7 series chipsets. Older chipsets are not supported. Intel is also presently working on a solution that allows TRIM in RAID 0 for Windows 8 systems with the new 7 series chipsets. To say this is long awaited news just may be a bit of an understatement."

Raidmax Agusta @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 1:13P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finding innovation and creativity in the case market today seems to get harder and harder as time goes by. Its not that everything has been done, more that coming up with new and innovative ideas is getting tougher for all of the manufactures. We are starting to see more and more cases that look alike. A while back Raidmax sent over a case they wanted me to take a look at, something different they had been working on. Today I will be taking a look at the final version of that same case, the Agusta. With a few new ideas and a style that no other case has, its most likely for everyone, but I have a feeling we will see a few around at LANs in the future."

Posted by: STAFF
StarTech.com is a retailer that specialises in hard-to-find niche computing and electronics items built for businesses, but today we`ll be looking at an item of interest to any gamer or media consumer. It`s called the InfoSafe, and it`s an unusual proposition -- a kind of high end hard drive enclosure that supports two 2.5? SATA drives. As well as the dual layout, there is support for a number of configurations and advanced connectivity options. Let`s have a look at whether this premium enclosure is worth the extra dosh. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

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.
