Samsung SSD 840 250GB review: affordable and fast?
     Sat, Oct 06 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is difficult to position the new 840 series. It's not an entry-level product in terms of price, if you're looking for something affordable you're still better off with the Samsung 830. The 840 also isn't a high-end SSD, models such the Plextor M5 Pro, Corsair Neutron GTX and Samsung 840 Pro are much faster and don't have the potential disadvantage of the TLC chips during intensive use. It's not mid-range either, SSDs like the Corsair Neutron 240 GB or the OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB are both faster and cheaper. In other words, the 840 series will become interesting only when the price goes down quite a bit, lower than the current level of the 830.

Samsung 840 Series 250GB SSD Review
     Wed, Oct 03 2012 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If I were to read an SSD review where the author spoke of traveling 6623 miles to personally receive a sample SSD, only to return those 6623 miles, conduct analysis and write a report on that SSD, I’d tell him that he’d lost his marbles. Having just returned from the Samsung 2012 SSD Summit in Seoul, South Korea, and just completed review of the world’s first TLC based Samsung 840 SSD however, we are saying just that.

Posted by: STAFF
LaCie is well known for good looking hight quality peripherals. With the Little Big Disk the manufacturer offers an external drive that offers some serious performance. Thanks to a Thunderbolt interface the two SSDs in a RAID0 configuration should deliver good sequential as well as random performance."

SSD NEWS: ADATA XPG SX300 256GB mSATA SSD Review
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 11:30A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following up on our recent review of the ADATA XPG SX300 mSATA SSD, we are now going to be running a similar analysis of the 256GB version of the same family. We have been curious as to what this particular review would hold, as we had done a review of the MyDigitalSSD SMART 256GB mSATA SSD some time ago and identification of that mSATA SSD displayed that it was a rebranded XPG SX300 256GB device exactly as we are testing today."

SSD NEWS: LSI Nytro MegaRAID NMR 8120-4i Application Acceleration Card Review
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 11:30A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This year at FMS 2012, we were met one day by LSI representatives who politely handed us a non-nondescript cardboard box and simply said, Enjoy. We had been waiting for this box for some time and new it to be the LSI Nytro MegaRAID NMR 8120-4i Application Acceleration Card, part of the trinity of new LSI application accelerating products, all of which we hope to be reviewing in due time."

Corsair Neutron GTX 240 GB Review - XSReviews
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 3:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the effects of the Thailand floods finally behind us and more manufacturers joining the SSD party, the SSD market has become quite competitive. We recently looked at two Plextor SSDs that provided an impressive amount of power, and now we`re looking at another top tier SSD, the Corsair Neutron GTX, that promises to be one of the fastest SSDs on the market. We`ll test the truth of that statement in this review -- let`s get into it! A link to the article would be much appreciated."

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."

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.
