SSD NEWS: Kupa X11 Windows Tablet With 128GB SSD Review - Convenience of a Tablet With The Power of a PC
     Wed, Jan 25 2012 | 8:46A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just prior to CES we had received an e-mail from a reader who had spoken of a company called Kupa, a tablet manufacturer who, as the reader had stated, wasn`t afraid to experiment outside the box. it took us all of two seconds to get to the Kupa Website and discover the Kupa X11, a tablet PC with all the power of a full size computer to include a Intel Atom Z670 1.5Ghz Oaktrail platform, 2GB RAM and your choice of 64 or 128GB SSD. Needless to say, we were impressed."

Patriot Pyro SE 240GB Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Jan 21 2012 | 11:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2011 has come to an end, but that doesn`t mean technology is slowing down one bit. For the second year in a row the solid state drive market was dominated by SandForce. If you wanted to produce a drive that was capable of the highest performance possible, you needed to start with a SandForce SF-2200 Series controller and pair it with either ONFi 2.0 or Toggle Mode NAND flash. Looking out on the horizon we don`t see SandForce trying to leap frog themselves early this year and we don`t see why they would need to. Last month we looked at the latest from Indilinx (OCZ Octane) and Marvell (Corsair Performance Pro) and neither controller managed to muster the performance of the SF-2281. Sometime in the middle of 2012 we`ll see Team SandForce manufactures move to 24nm Toggle Mode and maybe even 20nm IMFT flash, but neither of these technologies will bring a great deal to the table over the tried and true SF-2281 / synchronous flash combination we have today. The Patriot Pyro SE uses this magical combination to deliver amazing performance for general computing tasks and at an equally amazing price point."

Posted by: STAFF
?The LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt (240GB SSD) is currently the least expensive way to obtain Thunderbolt speeds for your late-model Mac. It`s half the price of the Promise Pegasus R6, the only other Thunderbolt drive on the market, but that doesn`t mean it`s cheap.?"

Solid State Drive Roundup
     Thu, Jan 19 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that we're a few generations into the SSD product race, it's easy to get confused as to which SSD you should choose, given the wide variety of products that are available. In the traditional hard drive market, the number of major manufacturers can be counted with your fingers. But on the SSD front, there are a huge number of brands available. Not only that, many brands carry multiple SSD product lines. The main differentiating factors between different SSDs on the market can be attributed to a handful of elements: controller technology, memory configuration, firmware customization and tweaking and levels of customer support. The selection of drives we'll be looking at are Crucial's m4, Kingston's HyperX, OCZ's Vertex 3 and Other World Computing's Mercury Electra 6G. These drives provide a good representation of the more popular configuration sets of current generation controllers and memory configuration.

Seagate GoFlex Desk 4TB USB 3.0 Hard Drive Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Tue, Jan 17 2012 | 11:31A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* The massive capacity of the Seagate GoFlex Desk 4TB USB 3.0 hard drive could probably store your entire media collection with room to spare - and with the USB 3.0 interface it can transfer it with lightening speed. The included software is more of a basic solution; if you want something a bit more robust you`ll have to pony up $50 or find another third-party solution."

Posted by: STAFF
Corsair`s Performance 3 256GB SSD showed many enthusiasts that an SSD didn?t need to have ?SandForce? in the same sentence as ?performance? and that the new Marvell controller was a force to be reckoned with. Today we will be putting the Performance 3?s predecessor ?the Performance PRO- under the microscope to see if it can meet our already high expectations.,,,,,,,,"

Seagate Thunderbolt Technology Solutions @ CES 2012
     Fri, Jan 13 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

This week in Las Vegas, Seagate will also debut the long-awaited GoFlex® Thunderbolt Adapter and the GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt Adapter. Seagate first unveiled working prototypes of these two advanced interface products during the Intel Developers Forum in November of 2011. These two products are the first to use the new Thunderbolt technology for widespread use by consumers for single drive enclosures. The GoFlex Thunderbolt Adapter will be available during the first quarter of this year and the GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt Adapter is expected to be available before the second half of this calendar year.

Game on!

To help demonstrate the speed and performance of the new award-winning Momentus® XT solid-state hybrid hard drive, Seagate will be hosting a gaming demonstration with a head-to-head competition between two identical Alienware™ M18X dual-drive laptop computers. One will be equipped with two of Seagate’s new solid-state hybrid Momentus XT drives, and the other will include 7200RPM 2.5-inch hard disk drives. Visit the Seagate booth (#31846) in the South Hall of Las Vegas Convention Center for an opportunity to win a Momentus XT hybrid drive, which is nearly three times faster than a traditional hard disk drive and has many of the benefits of solid state with much greater capacity at 750GB. Seagate will also host a contest to win one Alienware M11X laptop package valued at over $2000.00. For more details on the Alienware laptop equipped with a Momentus XT drive, and to enter the contest, please visit seagate.com/ces.

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.
