Hitachi Touro Mobile Pro 750GB USB 3.0 HDD Review
     Sun, Dec 25 2011 | 1:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mobile storage market is quite competitive even with raising disk prices from the Thailand flooding. Because of this, Hitachi has taken steps to differentiate themselves from most competitors. We`ve seen several stylish USB 3.0 drives on the market, but we`ve yet to see one that includes cloud based storage. Hitachi`s included 3GB storage can be increased to 250GB by opting into the paid service. Both the free and paid services can be accessed from any IP based device, like your desktop, notebook, tablet or smart phone. This service obviously goes well beyond just mobile storage and moves into the realm of everywhere storage. Hitachi`s Touro Mobile Pro has a single USB 3.0 miniport that can connect to your USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 port. The drive ships with the cable so you don`t have to worry about sourcing one elsewhere. Inside the unit we found a 7,200 RPM Hitachi SATA drive. Two options are available; either 500GB or 750GB. We are testing the larger of the two, the 750GB today."

Vantec NexStar 3 SuperSpeed 2.5 SATA to USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure @ Review the Tech
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 9:38P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I?ve got another USB 3.0 enclosure, this time from Vantec. It?s called the NexStar 3 SuperSpeed External Hard Drive Enclosure and it?s certainly a very nice looking product. Looks aren?t everything though are they, so that?s why this review, to see how it performs. I?ve put it up against a few other enclosures I?ve got on hand, so continue on to see how it does.

Mushkin Chronos 60GB Review
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Mushkin Chronos 60GB SSD still does offer good read and write performance for its price, especially when compared to mechanical drives. The drive also utilizes the SATA III 6Gb/s interface as well as a Sandforce 2281 controller. For those still using the SATA II 3Gb/s interface the drive is backwards compatible, although you will take a performance it. In the end I`d say that the Mushkin Chronos is a decent SSD, and well worth its cost."

Ineo I-NA309D Pro USB 3.0 to SATA Dual Bay RAID Enclosure Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 9:08A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I ran a couple of runs of Crystal Disk Mark on a 300GB Raptor, and the Ineo Technology I-NA309 D Pro Super Speed USB 3.0 enclosure on the fast setting was roughly 10 Mbps faster on the read and write than the Raptor. I was blown away by this, and I am now going to use this drive enclosure and the two drives as my main storage for all of my games and music."

Hornettek Shark 2.5 SATA to USB3.0 External Enclosure @ Review the Tech
     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 9:38P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I?ve got another USB hard drive enclosure for review. I figured it might make sense to follow another one after the Gauntlet review I posted yesterday. Today I have one from Hornettek called the Shark, yes it?s an interesting name for sure for an external enclosure, but it?s not a bed product. The Shark is both metal and plastic, the outer shell is metal for protection and heat dissipation while the inner tray is plastic to help keep the weight down.

Patriot Pyro 120GB SSD Review @ Neoseeker
     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 7:15P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot takes the second generation SandForce SSD processor and places it into a more affordable package with the Pyro, and we put the 120GB version of the new SSD through its paces. The Pyro is priced to sell at $200, but find out if the Pyro really starts any fires compared to its big brother, the Wildfire (and the rest of the competition), in our latest SSD review!"

ioSafe Rugged Portable Review @ DragonSteelMods
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 9:38P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review I?ve got one of the toughest and most rugged hard drives on the market today. At least I think it is, or it?s supposed to be according to the specs. The product is the ioSafe Rugged Portable that features a 750gb hard drive in it. The ioSafe is meant to fully protect your data through the roughest conditions you could possibly think of. We?re not talking carrying it in your bag either, this thing can be burnt, dropped, run over, dunked in water, and you data will still be safe. "

SSDNEWS: HighPoint RocketRAID 6Gb/s SATA/SAS 2720SGL Review Utilizing 8 Micron C400 6Gbps SSDs
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 11:36A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are testing a new controller from Highpoint that is taking a new approach to high end RAID. The new approach is inexpensive high performance RAID which is not only for corporations and system builders, but also, the casual user as well. The casual user qualifies as anyone who uses a desktop computer, home server, or dedicated NAS. The trick is to pull off the performance, yet also to allow for the same reliability and features that one would expect from a larger, more robust and Expensive enterprise class device."

Hitachi Touro Desk Pro 3TB HDD Review
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 12:27A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Desk Pro is a stackable external desk drive that uses USB 3.0 technology to connect to your PC or MAC. Three capacity sizes are available; 1TB, 2TB and the drive we are looking at today, 3TB. The Touro Desk Pro ships with two distinct backup platforms. The first is a seemless backup to the external drive and the second is a free cloud service with 3GB of space. The cloud service can be upgraded to 250GB with a paid subscription. We see our fair share of external drives throughout the year, but the Hitachi Touro Desk Pro stands out from the crowd with its cloud backup service. Hitachi calls this two levels of data protection. You get 3GB out of the box for free, but this account can be upgraded to 250GB for a yearly fee. The cloud portion of the backup can be accessed through any IP device like your PC, tablet or smart phone."

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.
