IOSafe Rugged Portable @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 8:45A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So you do the smart thing, you backup your data from your laptop and your home PC to an external or network drive and go on with life feeling confident that you have gone well and above what most people do. For the most part, you did. What about when you?re traveling, have you seen how much abuse a device can take when on the go? For some people, and I know I?m one of them, some of the data you carry with you while traveling is more important than the laptop or device that you actually carry it on. In that situation you need a way to not have to worry about your data, no matter the situation, and to have a guarantee to back it up as well. The folks over at IOSafe focus specifically on this crowd. Not only do they offer products that are according to them build to handle almost anything, but they back it up with data recovery if something does happen. Today we are going to take a look at that Rugged Portable hard drive to see what all of the fuss is about, without any more buildup, let?s dig in."

Comay Venus Pro 3 240GB SSD Review
     Sun, May 27 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just over a month ago, we conducted an analysis of what we thought to be the Comay Venus Pro 3 and, only after the review, were informed that we were actually looking at the Venus 3, an SSD that was not only branded incorrectly, but was also a special configuration for a specific customer. It appears our orders were mixed up. Comay apologized for the mix up and promised that we would be receiving a Venus Pro 3 soon enough where we could validate some vicious ‘SandForce Driven’ performance first hand.

Intel 520 Series 240GB Solid State Drive Review
     Sun, May 27 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This week I had a blast working with a Intel 520 series 240GB Solid State Drive, this thing is as closest to a perfect woman as your gonna get. Its works really fast, does it quietly and doesn’t complain at all not even after a full 10hrs workload :-). No seriously, solid state drives are a must have these days. Imaging putting one in your notebook saving energy and increasing your workflow as well. I have been watching the prices from the start when they still were sky high, nowadays it’s becoming more and more affordable and even for the common folk like me.

Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Accelerator series of "solid-state cache drives" work alongside an existing mechanical hard drive in your rig to provide all the benefits of SSDs, without actually requiring you to replace your HDD and reinstalling your OS. Just install the Acclerator drive and the special software, and tap into newfound data transfer and boot speeds, all while keeping your HDD as a boot device. See how the Accelerator stacks as a potential upgrade compared to standalone SSDs, and find out what the buyer must be aware of, in our review of the 30GB and 60GB offerings.

Plextor M3 Pro 256GB SSD reviewed
     Sat, May 26 2012 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we reviewed the Plextor M3 256GB SSD earlier this year our verdict was pretty positive. That model is based on the Marvell 88SS9174 controller combined with 24nm Toshiba ToggleFlash NAND chips. Its performance was excellent, the warranty impressive (five-year factory warranty) but the price was a bit steep in our opinion. A lot has happened in the world of SSDs in the few months that have passed since then. We've witnessed the arrival of new models such as the OCZ Vertex 4, but also the beginning of a price war. Many popular SSDs such as Crucial's m4 and Intel's new SSD 330 series are in the meantime available for significantly less than £1 per GB.

SATA 6GB/s drives are here to stay and Corsairs Performance Pro Series returns some impressive numbers to take advantage of the increased bandwidth.

Sandberg USB 3.0 HDD Cloner Review
     Mon, May 21 2012 | 11:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
External HDD Docking Stations may not be perfect (occasional issues with USB 3.0 models) and are certainly not as fast as an internal SATA III connection but regardless of these two they are also without doubt some of the most convenient accessories for computers ever manufactured. Of course ever since the first USB 2.0 HDD docking stations made their appearance a few years ago many new features have been added from Firewire, eSATA and USB 3.0 connectivity up to dual HDD docking stations with (select few solutions) or without RAID0/1 modes. However some manufacturers choose to walk another path and so Sandberg just released their second HDD Cloner and as expected we have been playing with it for the past week."

Kingston SSDNow V+ 200 120GB Solid State Drive @ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, May 20 2012 | 9:38A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The V+ 200 is offered in several different size variations including: 60GB, 90GB, 120GB, 240GB and 480GB. The drive takes advantage of a SandForce SF-2281 controller that has made a big name for itself over the past year and a half. And if you have been in the market for a SSD you should that the SF-2281 controller is capable of reproducing some really nice data transfer number which we will talk about in the review."

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.
