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.

Western Digital My Book Live Duo (4TB) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The competitively priced Western Digital My Book Live Duo is a two-drive network attached storage (NAS) device that offers an astounding 4TB of storage capacity. It`s very easy to use and offers speedy file read times, but it does lack some features and the latest USB 3.0 connectivity."

OCZ Synapse Cache 64GB SSD Review
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink

SSD's from Corsair
     Thu, Mar 01 2012 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Corsair has met a good mark with their Force Series 3 and Force Series GT offerings. While the performance is inline with other models sporting the stock SandForce firmware, where they win folks over is with the agressive pricing and broad range of capacity available across both product lines. Cost/GB figures approaching the $1/GB mark is definitely something we want to see for SSD adoption to improve, and Corsair is absolutely delivering in that respect."

Intel 520 240GB SSD RAID 0 Performance Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Wed, Feb 29 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In many ways Intel`s new 520 240GB is one of the best SSDs currently on the market but with a price of about $500, many will likely overlook it. However, for those that can afford the fastest solution possible, combining two of these drives together in a RAID 0 setup could potentially result in stratospheric performance across nearly every application.* *"

Seagate Momentus XT 750 GB Hybrid HDD Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 5:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since Seagate released the Momentus XT series, it has become a popular choice with notebook users who are usually limited to a single storage drive. It aims to bridge the performance gap between mechanical hard drives and solid state drives without resulting in a massive price premium. Today we are going to look at the second-generation solid state hybrid hard drive from Seagate, the Momentus XT 750 GB."

SanDisk Extreme 240GB SSD with 24nm Toggle Mode Flash Review
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 5:33P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I think by now most of our regular readers know about IMFT, Intel and Micron`s joint flash venture. Toshiba and SanDisk have teamed up as well. Flash Forward, LTD celebrated the opening of Fab 5, a 300mm flash memory fabrication facility in Japan, back in July. Flash Forward is owned by Toshiba (50.1%) and SanDisk (49.9%). This puts SanDisk in a good position when it comes to manufacturing SSDs. SanDisk 24nm Toggle Mode flash is the successor to the Toshiba 32nm Toggle Mode flash that was first introduced on many enthusiast class SandForce SATA III SSDs in 2011. Don`t think Flash Forward is stopping at 24nm, they are already working on 19nm with parts sampling as I type this."

     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 4:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Examining The SSD Industry - Researching The Controller or Processor is our third submission of several which examines the SSD industry from the ground up and provides some thought provoking ideals through the mind of Wayne Eisenberg, former VP of Worldwide Sales at SMART Modular. Within the series, topics will explore such things as the benefit of proprietary NAND in SSDs, the importance of the controller, firmware, warranties, as well as the changing face of the SSD arena as we see it. All reports are the thoughts and opinions of Wayne himself, a man who many would agree is probably one of the most versed in the industry, and has kindly agreed to open up the forum to discussion and questions by way of article comments."

TECH NEWS: LSI Releases Code To Manufacturers - New Increased Capacity SandForce Driven SSDs Hit The Streets
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 4:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those who have wondered why SandForce based SSDs seem to have a shorter storage capacity than all others (ie 240/256GB) need not worry further. LSI has recently released code to maufacturers which allows them to remove that 7% over provisioning that Sandforce drives are famous for without a performance kick, providing the consumer with 7% more storage on each new SSD."

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.
