OCZ RevoDrive 350 Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Jul 30 2014 | 6:07A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Speed isn`t the only feature of the RevoDrive 350 either. Aside from the utilisation of a PCIe port, freeing up SATA ports, especially if you use RAID, which may or may not be a positive, the RevoDrive is warranted for 50GB of host data writes per day. It comprises multi controllers so the host will see it as a single unit thus TRIM, Smart erase and SMART are features afforded by this drive."

Seagate Enterprise Capacity 6TB 3.5 HDD v4 Review
     Tue, Jul 29 2014 | 10:36A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Compared to your standard consumer level 3TB drive this thing is double the capacity and brings home the money with the performance. To have capacity and performance at the same time is the golden ticket. Although this drive has the added cost of being an enterprise drive, having dealt with some enterprise drives I can say it is well worth it if longevity and long up time is what you are looking for. They are just built to keep going all day and all night. Unfortunately at this time there is no non-enterprise version of this drive available so if you want this capacity in a single drive you are left with only this one for the time being (not that I really see that as a major problem)."

Crucial MX100 512GB SSD Review @ TechwareLabs
     Thu, Jul 24 2014 | 9:12A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are looking at Crucial`s newest budget drive, the MX100. This drive uses the same controller as Crucial`s high-end drives but a new, smaller NAND that helps to reduce the price per gigabyte significantly. With a low price and the promise of high performance this new drive could prove to be a big winner. Read on to see how it stacks up against the competition."

Which NAS HDD Should I Buy? (2014) Report @ APH Networks

OCZ Vector 150 120GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jul 23 2014 | 10:36A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ like most other manufactures cant just focus on just top of the line or budget products. Its important to cover a wide range of products to make sure you have something to meet all of your customers price and performance expectations. A good example of this was the Vector 150. They obviously also have the Vertex 450 that I reviewed previously. OCZ took the design that the Vertex 450 and original Vector both shared, kept the Barefoot 3 controller, and swapped out the NAND from 25nm IMFT MLC NAND to Toshiba`s 19nm MLC NAND. In other words the Vector 150 replaced the original Vector. OCZs Vector drives are their enthusiast focused drives while the Vertex drives are their top of the line mainstream drives. Lets dig in and see what sets them apart."

We dive into the latest DAS solution from LaCie, the 2Big Thunderbolt 2. This monster comes complete with no less than 12TB of brilliant storage."

Intel SSD DC P3700 Review (800GB) NVMe for Enterpriseand Enthusiasts?
     Sat, Jul 19 2014 | 10:41A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of the SSD DC P3700, Intel has delivered on the most anticipated piece of storage technology in recent memory. This release is all about NVMe. We have been hearing about NVMe for years, but an end product always seemed just out of reach. We also expected the first devices to be exorbitantly priced enterprise SSDs. While not the first to market, the Intel solution will be available to the masses and it will be priced to move. This is not something you can always count on for an enterprise product."

Thecus NAS 5550 Server Review @ TechwareLabs
     Fri, Jul 18 2014 | 7:45P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Thecus offers products for large business to home use, today we will be taking a look at the N5550, which is targeted for SMB (Small/Medium Business). In the Tower (as opposed to rackmount) SMB product category, Thecus has NAS devices with 2 to 7 drive bay configurations, and these units will also differ in CPU speed and pre-installed memory. Also, since this is targeted for the SMB market, the N5550 has features such as iSCSI Thin-Provisioning, RSync Backup, and User quotas."

PNY SandForce based Optima SSD - The Switch Side Discussed
     Fri, Jul 18 2014 | 5:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We caused quite a stir with our bait and switch SSD allegation, but we stand behind it 100%. We looked at the bait, now it`s time to see the switch."

Thecus N2310 Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Jul 17 2014 | 7:45P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not especially built for people new to Networking but clearly of some appeal to them, the Thecus N2310 on the face of it has a lot of appeal. It is well specified for a unit of this cost and being a Thecus it is backed up by a host of smart apps for the end user to configure and have a play around with depending on how the server is planned to be utilised."

Synology DS415play NAS Review at Hardwareheaven.com
     Wed, Jul 16 2014 | 7:45P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today Synology update their Play range of NAS with the DS415play, a 4bay device with enhanced media features and we have one to review."

OCZ RevoDrive 350 480 GB Review
     Wed, Jul 16 2014 | 5:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Built for heavy duty workloads, the drive excels where simple SATA 6Gbps RAID arrays start to falter. A two-drive RAID 0 setup using a pair of OCZ`s own Vertex 450 drives equipped with OCZ`s Barefoot controller give the RevoDrive 350 a run for its money in some workloads, but as the workload increases, the RevoDrive 350 excels. After taking some time to take this drive for a spin, it`s tough to find something not to like. It`s fast, easy to set up, looks great (for a drive at least), and can handle anything you can throw at it. Equipped with a three-year warranty, you can rest assured that OCZ will be around to take care of any problems now that the company is a subsidiary of Toshiba."
