OWC Mercury Accelsior E2 PCIe SSD Review - Dual eSATA Performance of 780MB/s Tested and Approved
     Fri, May 24 2013 | 4:27P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems that OWC has been at it once again and we recently received a new OWC Accelsior E2 PCIe SSD, fitted with two 240GB blade SSDs for excellent performance and capacity once again. The Accelsior is the latest design of the OWC engineering team and contains two 6Gbps eSATA ports that provide for external storage up to 32TB as well as performance similar to the original Accelsior. Once again, OWC has caught us off guard and this seems to be a first and great idea for increasing performance to another level and increasing capacity significantly. The beauty of the Accelsior has always been its expansion capabilities but this knocks the original capacity maximum out of the ball park."

OCZ Vertex 450 256GB SSD Full Review - Indilinx drives 20nm flash
     Fri, May 24 2013 | 8:21A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back when OCZ launched the Vertex 3.20, I felt like they were just checking the 20nm box with an underperforming, low-cost SSD. Within a month, however, they flipped that around entirely by launching another 20nm SSD driven by their powerhouse Indilinx controller. The performance leads the pack, and now so does the price."

WD My Passport Ultra 1TB Portable Storage Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, May 22 2013 | 9:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital has been focusing on cloud integration and this is the first My Passport drive to come with new standalone WD SmartWare Pro app that just came out in 2013. Before the WD My Passport and accompanying WD SmartWare software would automatically back up file changes to the My Passport local drive on the fly, but now you can schedule backups to both the drive and a Dropbox account. This is the major new selling point for the WD My Passport Ultra and shows that WD is fully embracing the cloud movement that is taking place right now worldwide..."

Seagate 600 SSD 240GB RAID Report
     Tue, May 21 2013 | 9:26A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been quite a long time since we`re published a RAID report. Today is Seagate`s big day with four product categories emerging from under the covers. We ended up with a pair for 600 SSD 240GB drives so it was a perfect opportunity to try them in RAID 0."

Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 512GB USB 3 Flash Drive (DTHXP30) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Tue, May 21 2013 | 8:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Normally when a company releases a 512GB USB 3.0 drive we would assume that it was a 2.5 form factor model, often using a mechanical drive but occasionally containing a SSD. Kingston havent taken that route though and instead have managed to fit half a gigabyte of storage into a much more compact package. So compact in fact that they include an attachment so that it can be carried about with us along with our keys."

Seagate Constellation ES.3 4TB Review
     Tue, May 21 2013 | 6:37A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Comparing the Constellation ES.3 to a pair of consumer mechanical drives shows the performance advantage of this drive in just about every test. RAID 0 performance scaled nicely, driving throughput of the Constellation drives to a level on par with some earlier solid state drives. Speed and capacity are what the Constellation drives bring to the table. Surely the 128MB of onboard cache helps the performance along with the 7200RPM spindle speed. As an enterprise class drive it is meant to spend its lifespan of 1.4 million hours dutifully answering data calls."

     Tue, May 21 2013 | 4:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink

Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung 840 SSD is the first solid-state drive using TLC flash technology, which promises higher data density, translating in lower overall cost. In our testing we see decent performance, that turns into outstanding when taking into account performance per Dollar and price per GB."
