WD My Passport 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jun 12 2012 | 3:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital went with a black plastic casing on the My Passport 2TB that is adorned with a circular pattern and the WD logo and product name. The My Passport is rather small and measures in at just 111mm x 82mm x 21mm or 4.37 x 3.24 x 0.82 with a weight of eight ounces. This might sound large to some, but it isn`t much bigger than an Apple iPhone 4S and easily fits in your pocket unless you are wearing skinny jeans..."

SanDisk Extreme SATA III 240 GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jun 12 2012 | 10:38A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In terms of performance, if you were looking for surprises from the SandForce powered SanDisk Extreme, you`ll find none here. Though no surprises, the performance is anything but disappointing. Blessed with high density, synchronous, and Toggle Mode NAND, we surmised that performance was going to be right up there with the best drives we`ve tested. We were right. It posted impressive scores on several of the benchmarks where it hit just over the rated specifications of 560MB/s reads and 520MB/s writes..."

     Tue, Jun 12 2012 | 9:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since OCZ launched their latest Vertex 4 several weeks have passed. Meanwhile they`ve released new revision of their firmware. According to the manufacturer version 1.4 should be able to give a 20 percent improvement on sequential writes with a 256 Vertex 4. We`re really curious if there really is such a significant improvement."

SSD NEWS: LSI Discovers SandForce 256-Bit Encryption Limited To 128-Bit - Problem Resolved and Fix On The Way
     Mon, Jun 11 2012 | 5:48P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
An internal security audit by LSI discovered that the world famous SandForce 256-bit AES encryption of LSI Flash Storage Processors (FSP) has never been, and is not presently enabled in SandForce SSDs, as stated by LSI SandForce representatives today. Fret not, however, as 128-bit encryption is still in place and, unique to SandForce, the SandForce SSDs are the only ones to have two separate encryption engines, a 256-bit engine on the front end and another 128-bit engine on the back end. It is the front end 256-bit engine that currently works at only 128-bit encryption, however."

REVIEW: VisionTek GoDrive 120GB @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Jun 11 2012 | 4:18P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we know, not everyone can afford the best of the best, so for the rest of us mere mortals, VisionTek has a new SSD that is more accessible to those of more limited budgets: the GoDrive. The VisionTek GoDrive still has the impressive SF-2281 controller, but lacks the Toggle NAND. Instead, it has sychronous memory that should still be able to provide excellent performance, while also being a bit lighter in the wallet. For those who still crave performance but don`t have the loftier budgets to always satisfy those wants, can the GoDrive stand up as a solid contender and alternative? Let`s get to it and find out."

Mushkin Chronos MX 120GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Jun 06 2012 | 9:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink

While there`s certainly nothing negative we can say about the Mushkin Chronos MX 120GB, there`s also very little we can say that sets this drive apart from its peers.
