SSD NEWS: OCZ Releases Agility 4 SSD at Record Low SSD Prices For a New Release
     Wed, Jun 06 2012 | 9:08A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It wasn`t so long ago that OCZ released the Agility 3 Series of solid state drives in effort to fill the space held by the typical consumer looking for a high performing, value oriented solution for their SSD needs. OCZ stepped out once again today by announcing release of their new Agility 4 to stand beside the Vertex 4, the V4 being the flagship of the Indilinx Everest 2 controller platform. As was the Agility 3 to the Vertex 3, the Agility 4 will be representative of both performance and value."

Mushkin Chronos MX 120GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Jun 06 2012 | 9:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While there`s certainly nothing negative we can say about the Mushkin Chronos MX 120GB, there`s also very little we can say that sets this drive apart from its peers. It`s a solid offering, worthy of your consideration if you can wade through the legions of SF-2281 drives available without getting distracted by the shiny..."

SSD NEWS: SSD Migration or Fresh System Installation - An SSD Primer
     Tue, Jun 05 2012 | 9:11A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the first challenges new SSD users face is whether to migrate the system in place or to consider a fresh OS installation where one might `start from scratch`. In many cases, users have several years invested in their system whereas, with others, the security of a fresh installation is a major step towards SSD happiness. The choice of SSD migration may seem the simplest answer but users should be aware that things may not go as planned, thus mandating a fresh install in any case. This article is intended to provide a brief overview of system migration and some of the difficulties that may be encountered, as well as providing an alternative and comparison in completing a fresh OS installation with your new SSD."

SSD NEWS: Monster Digital 400GB Le Mans SSD Review
     Mon, Jun 04 2012 | 9:11A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we will be reviewing the Monster Digital 400GB Le Mans SSD. This SSD brings with it a hefty amount of overprovisioning with Toshiba Toggle NAND and an SF-2281 under the hood. Monster certainly isn`t the first name that pops into mind when one thinks of SSDs. Branching out into the new market of high performance SSDs is breaking new ground for this long standing company, so we intend to see how the newly formed Monster Digital division fares with their first release."

OCZ Vertex 3 RAID0 Testing @ Techreaction.net
     Sat, Jun 02 2012 | 9:08A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ Vertex 3 120 GB SATA 6 Gbps SSD is a firecracker of a solid state storage drive and was reviewed a month ago here at at TechREACTION. SandForce drives offer the ultimate in performance while maintaining an excellent price point. Improvements in SandForces internal Garbage Collection as well as TRIM support in RAID on Intel have made combining a couple of drives a piece meal upgrade option instead of purchasing a single large SSD when first building a PC. This week we put the OCZ Vertex 3 to the test and see how two of the drives perform on TRs new LSI RAID controller. This is done now to provide a good comparison test for all SSDs reviewed from now on, it provides an even comparison point no matter what CPU/Chipset or drivers are used. As more SSDs are reviewed they will be combined in a database for comparative testing in both single drive and RAID configurations. Since the Vertex 3 120 GB SSD has been reviewed before, rehashing construction and packaging will not be done. For a in-depth look at the Vertex 3 please check out the single drive review linked to above."

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB and SSDNow V+200 240GB Review
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the success of its SF-1200 (1222) controller, virtually every SSD maker was eager to climb aboard the SandForce express. That bandwagon continued trucking through last year, as the second-gen SF-2200 (2281) powered many of 2011's noteworthy flash drives -- OCZ's Vertex 3 among them. Even Kingston, which previously used Toshiba chips, adopted SandForce's SF-2200 starting with last year's HyperX line. It's unclear when SandForce's next controllers will arrive, but in the meantime, companies seem to be making the most of its second-gen chips. Kingston, for instance, has released a pair of new SF-2281-based drives said to emphasize speed and affordability: the HyperX 3K and the SSDNow V+200. The former is aimed at enthusuasts and uses synchronous memory, while the latter uses cheaper asynchronous memory.

Kingston DataTraveler Elite 3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 8:45A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DataTraveler Elite 3.0 is a capless drive, which means folks like myself who invariably lose their caps can rest easy. With USB 3.0 speeds of 70MB/s read, 30MB/s write it should be fast enough for most users. "

2x Mach Xtreme Technology DS Fusion 60GB SATA3 SSD in RAID 0
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 6:27P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we test two 60GB SSDs in a RAID 0 array. Recently we tested one Mach Xtreme Technology MX-DS Fusion 60GB SATA3 SSD, which could not reach the top performance of the so far on ocinside.de tested SSDs. Now we will test two of these SSDs in RAID 0 at a SATA3 controller to compare the Solid State Drive Striping against the previously tested SSDs.

Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD Review
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 6:26P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today am looking at the Corsair Force Series 3 120GB SSD or Solid State Drive. If you haven’t got one yet then you might be willing to think about it after this review. Now the funny thing is that both the Corsair CSSD-F120GB3-BK and the Corsair CSSD-F120GB3A are the same but apart from the “A” having a newer firmware it’s price is lower as well. The CSSD-F120GB3-BK (which includes a drive bay bracket) goes for about a 122 euro’s here in The Netherlands whereas the Corsair CSSD-F120GB3A would set you back a mere 109 euro’s.

OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB and 512 GB Solid State Drives Review
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 6:26P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About a month ago OCZ launched a completely new family of high-performance SSDs based around the proprietary Indilinx Everest 2 controller, and very recently they released new firmware version 1.4 for it, which was supposed to increase its speed even more. Will this make Vertex 4 the fastest consumer grade SSD with SATA 6 Gbps interface? Let’s find out!

VisionTek enters the SSD market with a lineup of SandForce SF-2281 drives paired with qualified Toshiba Toggle Model MLC NAND flash. This combo makes for drives that live up to the Racer name, but also makes them quite a bit more expensive than competing options. See how VisionTek's Racer fares in our SSD test track.

ADATA SX900 256GB SSD review
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the ADATA SX900 256GB SSD. ADATA's SX900 series comes with the 2281 series SandForce controller. According to ADATA that will increase sequential read and write performance to 550MB/s which makes the SX900 the fastest SSDs they have ever produced. However, we stated it already, the market is fierce and competitive, the 2281 controllers have been widely adopted by many players.

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.
