     Thu, Jan 31 2013 | 1:39P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's new DC S3700 SSD series is absolutely perfect for a datacenter environment but it relatively low cost virtually guarantees that home users will take these drive seriously as well. But how do they actually perform against some of today's most popular enthusiast level SSDs?

WD RE 4TB Enterprise Hard Drive Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Jan 30 2013 | 5:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* Theres a relative lack of 4TB hard drive options on the market at the moment, but those looking for enthusiast or enterprise models are well taken care of. Weve already taken a look at WDs enthusiast part, the Black 4TB, so now its time to shift our attention to the feature-packed and enterprise-focused RE."

OCZ Agility 4 256GB SSD Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Jan 28 2013 | 1:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ`s Agility 4 uses the Indilinx-infused Everest 2 platform, similar to the Vertex 4. The Agility 4 drive however, uses asynchronous MLC NAND so that it may be offered at a lower price point in comparison to the Vertex 4. Available in capacities ranging from 64GB to 512GB, the OCZ Agility 4 is a cost-effective SATA III solution that could fit any budget. The OCZ Agility 4 offers TRIM support, access latencies as low as 0.02ms and up to 85,000 random 4K write IOPS. The move toward Indilinx controller technology worked well for the Vertex 4 and OCZ wants to show that the Everest 2 platform could deliver a balanced performance in the Agility 4 despite using asynchronous NAND compared to the previous generation SandForce based drives."

SSD NEWS: Plextor M5 Pro SSD Review (256GB)
     Fri, Jan 25 2013 | 5:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While at our meeting with Plextor at CES Las Vegas 2013, we had a conversation with respect to how TSSDR and Plextor could better serve the consumer in forming a bit tighter of a relationship with respect to upcoming product release. In this conversation, the fact that we had yet to review the Plextor M5 Pro came up and we had to admit that this SSD had completely slipped our mind. No sooner did we mention that we would love to review the M5 Pro than it was sent, in fact, hitting the ground at our office even before our return. Our SSD analysis today will take a close look at the Plextor M5 Pro SATA 3 256GB SSD, an SSD capable of over 500MB/s transfer speeds and 100,000 IOPS."

Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256GB
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It appears that the Xtreme firmware update for the Plextor M5 Pro is little more than a marketing ploy. While Plextor does indeed get in the vicinity of 100.000 4k read Iops, the SSD is not much faster in any of the other benchmarks. In some tests it's even slower with the new firmware than before.

OCZ Vector 256GB SSD Review @ Techgage
     Tue, Jan 22 2013 | 3:31P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* Vector is OCZs first SSD release since the ushering in of a new CEO and fresh perspective on its direction. Its also the first SSD to come equipped with both in-house firmware and controller. In effect, OCZ has built its Vector SSD from the ground up with its rich internal resources has it paid off?"

Intel DC S3700 800GB server SSD review: reliable and consistent
     Tue, Jan 22 2013 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest high-end consumer SSDs may be faster in most benchmarks, but when we tested the SSDs over a 15-minute period the Intel DC S3700 stands out with head and shoulders. Even after two hours the performance had not gone down. And since the steady state performance of Intel's new SSD is higher than that of the other SATA600 SSDs we've tested, it is perfectly suited for servers that will have constant loads for long periods of time, such as databases.

Corsair Neutron SATA III SSD Review
     Tue, Jan 22 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair tends to be somewhat measured in their approach to certain markets and only enters them with products that are clearly differentiated from the competition. That’s true for their cases, peripherals, power supplies, and many other product lines. Corsair, however, has been relatively adventurous in regard to Solid State Drives. Over the last few years, Corsair has offered SSDs built around controllers from virtually all of the major players, including Marvell, SandForce, Indilinx, and Samsung, among others. While Corsair has been open to working with multiple controller designs, they have not typically be first to market with drives based on brand new controllers. But that all changed with the recent release of the Corsair Neutron line of Solid State Drives. Corsair’s Neutron SSDs feature a new controller from Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD) that is not yet available in any other consumer storage product...

Western Digital RE 4TB HDD @ TechwareLabs.com
     Mon, Jan 21 2013 | 4:39P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While SSDs are by now the unquestioned performance kings when it comes to storage, their capacities are still too low and cost-per-gigabyte still too high for them to displace hard drives completely. While SSDs continue to improve at a meteoric rate, hard drive manufacturers aren`t sitting still. Today, we`ll be taking a look at Western Digital`s latest attempt at pushing back the superparamagnetic limit, the WD RE SATA 4TB drive. Whether it`s meant for large-capacity storage on a workstation, or as a way to expand the capacity of a high-load NAS device, this drive is WD`s current cream of the crop for SATA drives. Let`s take a look and see how it measures up."

Mushkin Chronos DX 480GB SSD Review
     Mon, Jan 21 2013 | 11:24A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mushkin has quietly held a price lead throughout 2012 on the 480 / 512GB capacity size. The Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 480GB isn`t always the absolute lowest priced SSD in this size, but it`s the lowest priced SSD with synchronous / toggle mode flash."

Samsung 840 Pro SSD 256 GB @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Jan 21 2013 | 5:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 840 Pro SSD is Samsung`s current flagship solid state drive. It comes with increased performance and better steady state long-time endurance. We pit the 840 Pro against ten other SSDs, including the OCZ Vector."

OCZ Vector 512GB
     Sun, Jan 20 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What we can say with absolute certainty is that in terms of performance the Vector is a worthy successor to the Vertex 4 series. The Vector was on average 27% faster in our file copy tests and is set to cost a little over 10% more, making it not only faster but also better value. Overall the OCZ Vector 512GB appears to be a solid contender in the performance SSD market.

Mushkin Atlas 30GB mSATA Solid State Drive Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Sat, Jan 19 2013 | 11:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* For many people, replacing a hard drive in a notebook requires them to take it to an expert so the data can be migrated to the new drive. Therefore, speeding up a hard drive to an SSD, can be a rather cumbersome and daunting process. The Mushkin Atlas 30GB mSATA solid state drive is one option that doesn`t require a whole drive replacement."

SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Jan 19 2013 | 9:29A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SanDisk is best known for their memory products and with that, they`ve been doing a number of SSDs on both consumer and enterprise fronts. Their latest offering that came across our desk is the Ultra Plus line being powered by the Marvell 88SS9175 controller and SanDisk`s own 19nm NAND. The 6Gbps interfaced drives are marketed towards the both the desktop and mobile computing crowds with promises of strong performance, high reliability and power efficiency. It comes standard in the 7mm, 2.5 form factor so it should be good to go for most Ultrabooks as well..."

Toshiba THNSNF 512GB SSD review
     Fri, Jan 18 2013 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the continuous activity test we see the strong side of the Toshiba SSD. When the SSD is in constant use for a longer period of time, the performance barely dips like it does for most other SSDs. This is of less importance for consumers, but for servers this is an advantage.
