[DreamWare Computers] Silverstone FP58 5.25 SSD/Slim ODD Bay Mount
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 4:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone has released a fair number of products over the last year aimed at the SSD market - many of which are two-in-one bay components which hold one or more SSD`s in addition to their primary function. Recently putting another one of these accessories on the market, Silverstone has released the FP58. The FP58 will hold one slot-loading slim optical drive and four SSD`s in a single 5.25 drive bay. An accessory like this makes it easy to expand on the number of SSD`s (or 2.5 drives) in your system without needing to find creative places to put them all (most new cases still only have one or two SSD mounts)."

Patriot Pyro SE 120GB Solid State Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Patriot started to release their SATA 6GB/s solid state drives they started with 2 drives. The Wildfire that was more on the high-end with Toshiba toggle memory and the Pyro which was the more consumer-focused drive that used asynchronous flash memory. Now Patriot has the Pyro SE, which will be using Micron 25nm synchronous memory. Using synchronous memory we should see better performance when it comes to incompressible data. Today we will be taking the 120GB version through the paces, read on to see how the drive performs."

OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid PCIe Hybrid SSD Review @ Techgage
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SSDs are expensive and often don`t offer enough capacity to meet user needs. The recent SSD caching craze attempts to alleviate both these issues, but OCZ has done one better. Combining a RevoDrive 3 with a 1TB HDD the RevoDrive Hybrid offers a self-contained SSD caching solution that is guaranteed to work."

How to Buy an External Hard Drive @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:52P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the increasing amount of data storage our lives require these days, it makes sense to invest in an external hard drive. External hard drives promise almost unlimited storage: For under $100, you can add a terabyte of data to your PC or Mac, portable or desktop. That`s enough for over 750,000 MP3s or photos, or over 230 DVD-sized movies. We tell you what to consider when choosing the right one for you."

[Review] Corsair Performance Series Pro 128GB 6Gbps SSD @ Techreaction.net
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 7:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the test bench this week is a Corsair Performance Series Pro 128GB Solid State Drive. Running on the SATA 6Gbps bus, the model line will run as high as 515 MB/s read speeds and 440 MB/s write speeds. The 128GB offers a slightly more modest 500/340 but advertises 60K IOPs. This translates to 240 MBps 4K writes and if accurate will be very impressive for a non-SandForce driven Solid State Device. Implementing a server-grade Marvell 88SS9174 Controller chip that has proven reliability over the years and recently has been given an update to provide even better performance than its initial performance in the Crucial/Micron C300 SSD, the first SATA 6Gbps SSD offered. The Corsair Performance Series Pro offers a 1.5 Million Hour MTBF, tied with a standard 3 year warranty. A full breakdown of the specifications is provided through Corsairs Website."

Patriot Memory Pyro 120GB 2.5? SATA III SSD Drive Review @ Madshrimps
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 3:52A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Patriot Memory Pyro 120GB SSD features Micron 25nm asynchronous NAND flash memory and a SandForce SF-2281 controller; while it does not succeed to beat other drives with the same SandForce processor, it is still an option to take into account, considering its competitive price."

OCZ RevoDrive 3x2 PCIE SSD Released To Consumer
     Sun, Mar 04 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
just a bit of an update to pass on that retail versions of the OCZ Revo 3×2 (480/960GB) and Revo will be hitting store shelves very shortly followed by the Revo 3×2 240GB a few days later. OCZ’s initial specs of the Revo 3×2 left enthusiasts in a daze as the 240GB initially promised was nowhere to be seen. The response was totally unexpected as we received countless e-mails, all looking for answers with questions preceded by “but…but…but”. Well, the Revo 3×2 240GB will be available, as originally promised, in just a few days.

MyDigitalSSD DDR2 Super Cache 32GB mSATA Solid State Drive Review
     Sun, Mar 04 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s now 2012 and the netbook market has evolved into ultrabooks. Ultrabooks use full speed notebook components, but keep the ultra-thin design first found on netbooks. In order for ultrabooks to take shape, 9mm HDDs had to go, enter mSATA. mSATA and the close variants are slated to make a grand entrance this year and not just in ultrabooks. At CES, four out of five next generation GIGABYTE desktop motherboards on display using the Ivy Bridge chipset sported mSATA slots. Intel`s Smart Response Technology and NVELO`s Dataplex software layer, also commonly referred to as SSD Cache can both quickly turn a small mSATA drive into instant IOPS performance beast while still offering the capacity of your large data capacity HDD."

SSD NEWS: Samsung PM830 SATA 3 256GB mSATA SSD Review - Ultrabooks To Gain Capacity and SATA 3 Speed
     Sun, Mar 04 2012 | 8:33A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today`s SSD exclusive is going to be a first look at Samsung`s new PM830 SATA 3 mSATA 256GB SSD. This SSD is rather unique as it is one of the first SATA 3 SSDs to be released at the 256GB capacity range and, although laptops and ultrabooks that can utilize it are still limited to just a few, the call for such by the consumer is definitely present. Unfortunately, the Pm830 SATA 3 256GB mSATA SSD is only available through system purchase and not by retail sales."

REVIEW: Kingston SSDNow V+ 200 RAID 0 @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 1:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we recently looked at a cost effective drive offering from Kingston, the SSDNow V+200 120GB SATA III drive, we came away impressed. Kingston`s choice of asynchronous (Async) NAND flash memory provided an excellent balance of performance and price. Today we`re looking at a pair of these Kingston drives in RAID 0. Think one is fast? Wait until you see two. Strap in for some serious speed."

'ineo Protection Box - I-NC05'
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes the simplest products are actually great products. If you remember the good old days when people played tapes instead of CD's, you would remember the Cassette boxes they came in. The idea was simple, use the box if you didn't want to damage your cassette. These boxes weren't the “be all, end all” for protection, but they did an adequate job of protecting your tapes from accidental splashes and dust. In addition to that, they made organizing your collection easy because they were uniformly shaped even though our cassettes were oddly shaped. Hard drives are no different. They should get the same kind of love and attention that our beloved cassette tapes did in the 80's, but instead they are stacked on our shelves naked and lonely waiting for dust and coffee to find them. Fear not solution seekers, there is an answer! ineo (yes, that is a lowercase "i") has produced a simple hard drive protection box, but does it cut the mustard... or the cheese?

HDD Pricewatch: Three Months Into the Thai Floods
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The hard disk drive supply chain was hit hard late last year when a series of floods struck Thailand. The Asian country accounts for about a quarter of the world's hard drive production. All this resulted in hard drive prices shooting through the roof around the end of October as production became more expensive and limited. With the help of price tracking site Camelegg we've checked on a number of mobile and desktop HDDs to get a better overview of how the situation has developed in the last three months.

OCZ Octane 512 GB Solid State Drive
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Among SSDs from OCZ there is one very interesting series of products – Octane built on a unique Indilinx Everest controller. We haven’t yet reviewed drives like that therefore it was particularly interesting to see if Octane would become a worthy competitor to popular SSDs on SandForce and Marvell controllers. Especially since OCZ has recently released a new firmware update for their Octane series, which significantly improves their performance.

Intel SSD 520 240GB Review
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has finally refreshed their enthusiast SSD line-up by launching drives built on second generation SandForce controllers. Is it another SF-2281 clone? Not at all! Intel’s products come with exclusive firmware, which puts them one step above all other currently existing solid state drives.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
