G-Technology G-Drive Mobile USB 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Fri, Apr 19 2013 | 3:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well lucky for all consumers it seems that the prices of both internal and external storage media (HDDs and SSDs) are still taking a plunge something which i guess explains the sudden spike in sales surrounding such products around the globe. Personally i think that`s a good move from all the manufacturers out there not only because it means we will get to see 5TB drives sooner rather than later but also because there`s no real excuse for anyone to not purchase extra storage now with such low prices (at least the ones that really need the extra space). Still we also have to do our part and so as promised we are focusing on storage media related reviews lately in an effort to showcase/test most of the currently available solutions in the market and to that end today we are taking a look at the G-Drive Mobile USB 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive by G-Technology."

     Fri, Apr 19 2013 | 12:22P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last consumer affordable Kingston SSD we tested in the lab was the V+200 series. For the price and performance upgrade, it was great. But a newer more up to date controller brings us to the V300 series launched for both desktop and notebook users in full upgrade kit trim levels. Lets have a look at the Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB SSD and see what it has in store for users. *"

Crucial M500 960GB SSD Review
     Fri, Apr 19 2013 | 9:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Tera-Era has begun! Crucial leverages its 20nm NAND flash to achieve a major milestone, the first consumer 2.5 SSD to reach 1TB. Since parent company Micron owns the flash fab, the price is much better than you might expect."

OCZ Vertex 3.20 120 GB Review @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Apr 19 2013 | 6:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Vertex 3.20 OCZ officially launches their first product that features 20 nanometer NAND from the Intel/Micron joint venture. This step is quite a critical one for OCZ since it means that have to do a balancing act between endurance and price. There are quite a few manufacturers out there in the market that already offer TLC based SSD with significantly lower prices. At this point we just want to tell you, that OCZ does not got for TLC NAND, they stick to MCL chips and we think it`s a good compromise between not only price and endurance but also performance."

Seagate 500GB SSHD Thin Hybrid Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Apr 12 2013 | 4:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hard drives with solid state cache storage, also known as hybrid drives, have been around for awhile. They are popular with laptop users but until now, those that have equipment designed to work only with 7mm high drives have been out of luck. Seagate`s latest SSHD has been redesigned to a smaller, 7mm form factor as well as improved performance. See how it compares to the previous generation Momentus XT drive."

Samsung 840 Series 120GB Solid State Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Apr 11 2013 | 9:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung is a very large player in the solid state drive market, but you may not have known. This is because they sell their drives in bulk to companies like Apple to use in their products. That is why they are not an known in the consumer or enthusiast market. In fact Samsung is the largest producer of flash memory in the world. One thing that is great about Samsung solid state drives is that everything inside is made by Samsung, the NAND, controller and DRAM cache. This makes it very easy for Samsung to correct issues or fix problems because everything is done in-house. We saw this on Samsungs 830 Series solid state drive and the big difference between the 830 and 840 is that the 840 Series uses TLC NAND chips instead of MLC. We will get to the difference in just a bit. The controller on the 840 Series has also been updated. The 120GB version we are testing today has read and write speeds of 530MB/s and 130MB/s respectively so it sort of fits into the entry-level segment. Lets take a look"
