     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 9:10A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Need big storage, but can`t compromise on performance? At a time when 1TB SSDs cost as much as an excellent gaming PC, the obvious choice becomes WD`s VelociRaptor - which not only recently received a refresh, but also a 1TB model. Let`s take a look at it, and see how it compares to WD`s other current desktop hard drives."

Thermaltake Armor Revo - Snow Edition @ Techreaction.net
     Wed, Jul 04 2012 | 4:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the lack of cases on the market that are not black or black with accents, it is refreshing to see that Thermaltake has stepped outside the norm and put out a Snow Edition Armor Revo chassis. The Revo sports a fan controller that supports up to 5 fans, two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 connections. Thermaltake has also added an HDD docking station on the top of the Revo, which supports one 3.5 or 2.5 drive. To add to the aesthetics of the Revo, Thermaltake has also added wing shaped aluminum bezels on the front to help it stand out and give you the feel of actual armor.The Revo also boasts a massive air cooling system, along with the option to place a full water cooling setup inside. Now, if we have blown enough smoke your way, lets get to reviewing this case and see if it stands up to all the claims. Read on "

OCZ Vertex 4 240GB SATA 6Gbit/s SSD Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Jul 04 2012 | 1:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* The Vertex is back, and this time it features more OCZ than ever before! (No, we`re not kidding.) Powered by its latest Everest 2 platform, the Vertex 4 is a completely in-house SSD that not only brings Indilinx back to the table, but very well has the potential to be the most reliable Vertex-branded SSD we`ve ever seen."

SSD NEWS: LSI SAS 9207-8i PCIe 3.0 HBA Overview - Eight Crucial M4 SSDs Pushed to 4.1GB/s Performance
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 4:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LSI`s new PCIe 3.0 HBA and MegaRAID offerings promise oodles of extra performance above and beyond the limitations imposed by PCIe 2.0. While the new Gen3 MegaRAID solutions are still a ways out, we happen to have a Gen3 HBA here. This particular 9207-8i is destined for our enterprise evaluation system, but since it`s a new product and all, we thought we`d hook up some SSDs and see if performance is really better as a result. Can we break the 3GB/s limit of the PCIe 2 LSI 9211? Can we get some great scaling off of eight Crucial M4 256GBs on 000F firmware?"

ADATA Premier Pro SP900 128GB Solid State Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 9:16A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SandForce SF-2281 controller has been powering many of the solid state drives we have reviewed in the past year or so. When these drives were first released 28% of the storage capacity was used for over-provisioning. So if you had a 128GB drive you would actually get 100GB of available space. Later this 28% was brought down to 7%, now SandForce has released a 0 provision that allows for 0% of the capacity to be used for background activities. Today we are taking a look at one of the first drives to use this 0 provision, the ADATA Premier Pro SP900."

SSD NEWS: MyDigitalSSD BulletProof 3 mSATA 256GB SSD Review
     Sat, Jun 30 2012 | 9:10A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few days ago we looked at the MyDigitalSSD SMART SSD which gave us a peak of what has become an ever growing mSATA SSD market. That SSD, based on the ADATA XPG SX300 architecture, is the fastest and highest capacity mSATA SSD available to date. The MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 256GB SSD is the little brother of the SMART and, although it is not `SandForce Driven` and is a bit lower in performance, it`s capacity and price point make it a definite contender in the mSATA market."

     Fri, Jun 29 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Accelerator Series was designed to significantly boost your systems read and write performance by the least intrusive method possible. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to upgrade your existing system this is most certainly one of the best ways to do it. Sure you don`t have to do any drive mapping or need to reinstall the operating system, but it isn`t as `no hassle` as we first thought..."

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.
