Crucial V4 256GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 3:43P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* *At first glance the Crucial V4 256GB is the antithesis of current SSDs since it fails to deliver convincing performance wins over its brethren. However, the V4 still provides HDD-destroying benchmark numbers and 256GB of capacity alongside a price of under $180. * *"

     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 11:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Today we will be looking at an elegant and functional solution to this problem: the card reader.

Convar BytePac Eco-Friendly Paper Hard Drive Enclosure Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 11:52A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those that go out of their way to minimize impacts on the environment, this is a no-brainer. According to Convar, the average hard drive plastic case is produced using 350ml of crude oil. Cardboard is also much more cost-effective in terms of manufacturing so the cost for the kit we reviewed is very reasonable at $55.93. Frankly, the cables alone are worth that much and are all covered by a generous 5-year warranty. Overall, it`s very innovative, works as advertised, and we really have nothing negative to say about our experience with the BytePac. .."

ADATA Nobility NH13 750GB External Hard Drive Review @ TechwareLabs
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 9:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During our recent trip to Computex in Tiapei we were able to talk to ADATA and get a look at their USB 3.0 Storage line. With USB 3.0 being a large increase in speed and performance over USB 2.0 it`s a no brainer upgrade. Today we will be taking a look at a 750GB external HDD from the the Nobility NH13 line. Our gauge for looking at this product will be Performance and Build Quality."

Saitek Pro Flight Controller Accessories
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 11:58A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Saitek`s Pro Flight Cessna Yoke system left me very impressed - Saitek had done a great job at creating a realistic feeling flight control system for under $250 (avid sim enthusiasts know that competing systems can cost quite a bit more!). One aspect of the system I didn`t get to touch on in that review was it`s expandability. Saitek offers almost a dozen different add-on modules for the system - ranging from rudder pedals to a variety of button and radio panels and even LCD instrument panels! Today I have three expansion accessories here and I will take a look at how these add-ons perform and how easy it is to upgrade your existing setup to give you an even better sense of realism in your flight sim."

Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 9:53A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Driven by a Link_A_Media (LAMD) Controller Neutron GTX is backed by Toshiba Toggle Flash NAND and boasts better random read/write speeds as well as sequential performance too. Corsair have extended warranty with the Neutron Series also, the usual 3 years warranty is a thing of the past ? make way for a superior 5 years warranty instead. Neutron GTX is shaping up to be a very competent offering so let?s waste no further time and begin analysis."

Crucial V4 256GB SATA II SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 9:34A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial lists the capabilities of V4 256GB SATA II SSD as being able to reach read speeds of up to 230MB/s and writes up to 190MB/s. In two out of three synthetic benchmarks, we saw these specifications exceeded with the max reads hitting a hair under 280MB/s and writes just under 240MB/s. Obviously, this is best case performance scenarios but it gives a clear indication of what the drives are capable of although the lesser capacity versions will return lower results. Being a value oriented drive, we feel like the performance is very solid..."

Startech 4 Bay Standalone HDD Duplicator Dock Review - XSReviews
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 9:20A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month we looked at StarTech.com`s Dual SATA Enclosure and found it to be a very high quality product indeed, operating at a premium price range but offering quite a few features for the money as well. Today we`ll be looking at another item that has a slightly different purpose, but could be described in much the same way. It`s a 4 bay standalone HDD duplicator, designed to allow the contents of a single drive to be copied to three other drives simultaneously. It doesn`t need to be connected to a PC to operate as a duplicator, although it can serve as a massive 4 hard drive enclosure when connected to a PC via USB 3.0 or eSATA. It`s an interesting idea, so let`s have a look at how it works and whether it`s worth that high price tag -- 544.79! A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive Review @ Techgage
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 4:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* With the release of its Red hard drives, WD hasn`t only managed to scratch another color off its list, but it also gives NAS users a drive designed just for them. Beyond its NAS-specific features, Red proves to be one of the fastest drives on the market, and with its 3-year warranty, it`s without a doubt a very compelling option for NAS users."

Crucial v4 256GB vs. OCZ Agility 4 256GB SSD Shootout
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By mid 2012, SSD prices fell through the floor, costing approximately half as much as last year. Granted, that's still nowhere near as economical as standard hard drives, so companies have continued to offer affordable solutions in addition to their high-end series to drive sale volumes. Such is the case with OCZ and the Agility 4, a budget-minded counterpart to the Vertex 4 that employs cheaper NAND flash memory. In similar fashion we recently saw the arrival of the Crucial v4 series. With both the Agility 4 and Crucial's v4 priced at just under $200 for 256GB models, it seems we have the makings of a value-driven shootout...

StarTech USB 3.0 to 2.5" SATA Enclosure with Encryption
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today's need for protecting data has been encouraging many manufacturers to develop and deliver products that can keep your data with you and protected. As we see more data services experience security breaches, like the recent Dropbox breach, it seems that the best way to keep your data safe is to keep it on you at all times. The drawback to this is that if someone steals your portable storage device or you leave it on the subway, someone now has access to all of this data! StarTech thinks they have the answer by delivering the S2510BU3PW - a 2.5 in. Encrypted Hard Drive Enclosure.

Western Digital Red Drive 2TB Hard Drive @ TechwareLabs
     Sun, Sep 02 2012 | 4:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Large corporations are happy to front the bill for enterprise equipment if it means they can have that much less downtime. When it comes to SOHO, the bill can be a bit more difficult to front. SOHO still need as much up time as possible, but don`t always have the budget. Western Digital tries to address this market with their new line of Red Drives."

VisionTek Racer Series 120GB Solid State Drive Review

Posted by: STAFF
Few companies are as established as VisionTek, but can a great company name built on good support, quality and product availability make up for an SSD with an inflated cost?"

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.
