Samsung 845DC PRO Review (400/800GB) - Class Leading Speed and Endurance
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 9:32A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the 2014 Samsung SSD Global Summit, Samsung showcased its latest consumer SSD, the 850 PRO. Just like the 840 PRO before it, we loved the 850 PROs performance and technological advances. In fact, it is probably the best SATA 3 (6Gbps) drive on the market. As an enterprise reviewer, I expected the normal 6-12 month wait before the 850 PRO would spawn an enterprise cousin, as we have seen with the Samsung SM843 and 845DC EVO. That 12 month wait was closer to 12 minutes as Samsung surprised all in attendance with their announcement of the 845DC PRO, alongside the 850 PRO."

bait-and-switch tactics by SSD vendors Kingston and PNY
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past week or so, we've seen an uproar over what some folks perceive as bait-and-switch tactics by SSD vendors Kingston and PNY, culminating with calls for a boycott. We got to the bottom of things to see whether consumers have truly been misled, and if so, what the appropriate response should be.

Silicon Power Slim S60 240GB SSD Review
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 1:12A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mainstream is a word i never expected to use when referring to solid state drives (SSDs) but thanks to the continuous price drops and the increased competition in the market today i don`t think i know of a single person that doesn`t own at least one. What`s even more interesting however is the amount of manufacturers that currently offer complete NAND flash controller packages (hardware & software). Back in the beginning things were quite simple for consumers since we just had Indilinx, Marvell and SandForce solutions to choose from but now several years later there are many more players in the market to choose from including Samsung, Intel, Seagate (LinkAMedia), Marvell, OCZ (Indilinx), Avago (LSI/Sandforce) and PHISON. That being said we haven`t had a SSD wearing a LSI/SandForce controller on our test bench for quite some time now but the latest Slim S60 model by Silicon Power does and we just had to take a look and see how it competes against the other controllers available currently."

Crucial M550 Solid State Drive Review
     Mon, Aug 11 2014 | 3:57P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Previous Crucial SSDs from M500 family had a great popularity thanks to their moderate pricing. But performance of M500 series wasn't such great. That is why Crucial has developed the new M550 family with renewed controller and firmware and with new approach to NAND selection. And this refresh is very promising.

Thecus N2560 Dual-Bay NAS Server Review: Budget HTPC Option
     Sun, Aug 10 2014 | 5:08P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thecus N2560 NAS Server is an interesting product that demonstrates what is possible when implementing a low-power SoC like the Atom CE5335. Building on what we saw from the N2310, which featured a proper iTunes server implementation as well as app support for functions like bit torrent downloading, the N2560 provides even more impressive funtionality with the digital audio/video output. Of course this would be useless without good software to drive the experience, but the integration of XBMC as an interface for media playback makes the process of getting files to your TV and sound system extremely simple."

Samsung 845DC EVO SSD 960 Gigabyte Review @ ocaholic

Posted by: STAFF
Next to the 845DC PRO Samsung has also launched the 845DC EVO series. This drive is equipped with TLC NAND flash memory chips and therefore it`s suitable for read-intensive workloads, preserving precious write cycles. Furthermore TLC NAND allows for highly competitive pricing, which you will get with this drive. Overall we`re curious to see how this drive is going to perform."
