Vantec NexStar HDD Duplicator Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Oct 09 2013 | 10:26A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We?ve seen our share of hard drive docks and even a few from Vantec, but this time they have something a little different. The NexStar HDD Duplicator also does as its name implies, it can duplicate drives on a sector-by-sector basis. The beautiful part is that it can do it independently, without the need of being connected to a host PC. Therefore, no software is needed and it doesn?t really care what data or OS is on the drive. This makes for a very flexible tool which may appeal more to the techie crowd than the average user since not everyone has the need for drive duplication. Read on to see how it works!"

Corsair Force Series LS 240GB SSD Review
     Thu, Oct 03 2013 | 12:52P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to SSD controllers, up until recent times LSI/SandForce and Marvell have pretty much ruled the roost. Other than a few instances of utilizing proprietary controllers (such as Samsung does in most of their SSDs), and a smaller player in Indilinx (acquired by OCZ), there were no other options for manufacturers to engineer a new SSD with. That has recently begun to change, as other controllers are beginning to appear on the scene. The last Corsair SSDs (the Neutron and Neutron GTX) that we reviewed back in August featured the new Link A Media (LAMD) 6 GB/s controller. Corsair was one of the first SSD manufacturers to hit the retail market, and although they have proceeded a bit more carefully than other manufacturers, they have earned a reputation as providing some of the top performing SSDs that money can buy. Their success in SSDs has shown with their willingness to explore different controllers in search of the best, as well as bringing out non-standard SSD capacities that few others offer. The Corsair Performance Pro was one of the better SSDs we have tested, and it surprised everyone as it is based on the Marvell 9174 controller, and Corsair truly found the sweet spot in its performance."

HGST Travelstar 7K1000 1TB SATA III HDD
     Mon, Sep 30 2013 | 1:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since current technology focuses a lot in shrinking everything it comes as little surprise to see that most storage media manufacturers nowadays choose to favor the developing of 1.8 and 2.5 media over the far more popular and widely distributed 3.5 ones. This certainly explains the why although 3 years ago the 2.5 HDD with the highest capacity was 750GB (highest capacity 3.5 has 3TB) just 1 year ago we breached the 2TB barrier (highest capacity 3.5 was and still is 4TB) and just a few months ago we also witnessed the appearance of 2TB 2.5 SSDs so it`s really only a matter of time before we see 2.5/3TB 2.5 HDDs/SSDs in the market. That being said most people i know still use 500GB 2.5 drives both in their laptops and for their portable needs but since many of them are starting to experience the limitations of just having 500GB we decided to focus a bit on some of the latest 2.5 hard disk drives to hit the market and we will start by testing the latest Travelstar 7K1000 1TB 2.5 SATA III model by HGST."

WD My Passport Slim 1TB Portable Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Sep 30 2013 | 9:04A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Chances are you have an external portable hard drive that uses the USB interface to backup your personal data.

Toshiba mSATA Client SSD Review (256GB)
     Sat, Sep 28 2013 | 9:04A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is no secret that the popularity of mSATA SSDs is being pushed around just a bit by M.2 PCIe design. M.2 SSDs may even tempt us with a great deal more power for the punch and capacity down the road. What M.2 doesnt have, as of yet, is just about every popular ultra book in the world in their pocket and that is where mSATA SSDs feel secure. It is kind of like the SATA 2 to SATA 3 move made in SSDs where, as much as SATA 3 is faster and makes sense, 99.8% of the population uses SATA 2. You can imagine that we were more than a bit surprised when our expected receipt of a 512GB Toshiba Client notebook SSD not only included a 256GB mSATA form factor as well, but also, we think this is the first official shot of their new Client M.2 PCIe SSD in the wild; it being 512GB as well. Although we are not to sure about placement of the notebook SSD variation article, we can guarantee that the M.2 SSD will be fully reviewed soon enough on our sister site, The SSD Review We are off on a flight half way around the world early tomorrow am and returning Friday so expect the M.2 posting on TSSDR early next week."
