SSD NEWS: Corsair Accelerator Series 30GB Cache SSD Review - A Second Wind For Your System
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 11:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
60GB model and how drive-caching technology affected system performance. Astounded by the results, we were curious as to how the Accelerator performed at opposite ends of the capacity spectrum. Hence, those of you looking for a more affordable caching drive are in luck as we take a fresh look at the 30Gb flavored Corsair Accelerator SSD."

Core i5-3470 from Intel
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Realistically, the Intel Core i5-3470 performance is exactly where I expected it to be with regards to the standard suite of CPU benchmarks we use here at PC Perspective. Running at close to the same clock speeds of the first Ivy Bridge processor we tested – though without HyperThreading and without the full 8MB of L3 cache – the 3470 was found to be anywhere from dead even to as much as 40% slower than the 3770K depending on the application. Though I feel like a broken record, it all depends on how well the application in question implements multi-threading."

Intel 330 Series SSD 120GB Review
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Since their first SSD Intel have taken a few approaches to building the devices. Initially they went with their own controllers within the drives and it is fair to say that those drives were some of the best in early generations. Since then we have seen them dabble with updated controllers under their own brand, try out Marvell and more recently release a Sandforce based drive in the form of the 520 series."

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jun 26 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The benchmark results on the Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD came out very much as we expected. Performance nearly mirrors that of the Kingston HyperX 5K drive and places itself amongst the best drives we have tested. The read/write specifications of 555MB/s and 510MB/s respectively are good to start with but we saw the writes exceed that specification in the ATTO benchmark by an additional 24MB/s. Real world scores were very good as well and since we`ve spent several months using the 5K drive in one of our 24/7 systems without incident, we expect to see the same consistent performance from the 3K drive..."

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB Solid State Drive
     Tue, Jun 26 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: Kingston has been one of the more prominent brands in the SSD market, in part because they offer a diverse line up that covers the full spectrum of capacity, performance, and budgets. The item up for review today, Kingston's HyperX 3K 240GB SSD, is a perfect example of how high performance and high capacity are achievable without an astronomically high price.

SSD NEWS: MyDigitalSSD SMART Series 256GB SSD Review ? Top Performance Unmatched Capacity Killer Price
     Tue, Jun 26 2012 | 11:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its not often that I credit a companys business practices but this is going to be the exception for Matt Dawson and MyDigitalSSD who recently sent us three new SSDs for review, the Smart 256GB mSATA, the Bullet Proof 256GB value driven mSATA and the 512GB BP 3 2.5 SSD. Todays evaluation will be on the MyDigitalSSD Smart Series 256GB SATA 3 SSD and I guarantee this review will raise a few eyebrows. As a bit of a hint, lets just say that things arent always as they seem."

OCZ improves Vertex 4 with firmware 1.4
     Sun, Jun 24 2012 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new firmware really improves the performance of the Vertex 4 128 and causes a moderate improvement for the 256 GB version. Writing large files on the Vertex 128 GB now goes twice as fast, and 25 percent faster on the Vertex 4 256 GB. You will actually notice this increase when using the SSDs. In other areas the improvements are less drastic, which makes the average look less impressive. If you own a Vertex 4 128 GB or 256 GB then we definitely recommend installing the new firmware. Do remember to make a back-up first, for example with Ghost, otherwise you will lose all your data.

Western Digital Scorpio 1TB (9.5mm) review
     Sat, Jun 23 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Usually there is room for only a single hard disk in a laptop. When you need a lot of storage capacity the only option is to go for a 2.5-inch disk with the highest capacity possible. Western Digital is not the only one with 1 TB 2.5-inch disks on the market, but the fact that the new Western Digital Scorpio 1 TB is only 9.5 mm thick means it will fit in most laptops. The performance is very good, due to the high data-density it performs as well as 7200 RPM disks. And to be clear, 1 TB 7200 RPM drives don't exist yet.

Synology DiskStation DS412+
     Fri, Jun 22 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is no questioning the performance of the new DS412+, as the dual-core Atom 2.13GHz processor allowed it to hang with some of the fastest units we have tested. The DS412+ had no trouble matching the performance of the bigger and more expensive DS1512+ and with a load consumption of just 46 watts it was also very efficient.

Kingston V+ 200

Posted by: STAFF
"The Kingston V+ 200 has shown good performance overall. It also comes with a great packaging and a three year warranty, but most importantly with a low price. If you are looking for an SSD that will give life to your laptop or your desktop PC without spending a lot of money, then this drive is one to look at very closely"

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.
