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."

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."

Icy Dock Blizzard MB080U3S-1SB @ Techreaction.net
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 10:42A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
TechREACTION would like to thank Icy Dock for providing this rather unusual (but stylish) external enclosure for our scrutiny. Being a major player in the storage enclosure (from internal 2.5 to 3.5 drive adapters all the way up to external raid cages) market Icy Dock has the bases covered. One question comes up here and that is what can you use an external drive for besides backups? The answer to that question is rather subjective and the one thing that breaks the deal is access times and transfer rates. Can this drive match the transfer rates and access times of internal drives? How about solid state drives? Is it capable of pushing the data? We shall see."

StarTech UNIDOCK3U Hard Drive Dock Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Aug 12 2012 | 3:39P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having a dock to plug in what are normally internal hard drives makes it easy to access data on the drive without the hassle of having to open up the case and insert the drive - especially if the SATA ports are not hot-swappable which would require a reboot. There are a host of such docks on the market with an array of interfaces and connectors. StarTech.com is offering up a somewhat unique version that connects to the PC via USB 3.0 and connects to drives via SATA II or IDE interface. Today, we`ll be having a closer look at the dock and giving our impressions of how it performs and ease of use..."

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.
