iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-WB Trayless Hot-Swap Cage with Wood Look Bezel Reviewed @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Feb 04 2014 | 8:31A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Computer storage comes in many forms and we need to have it for everything really, Im the type of person who doesnt care of the cloud and I put everything on hard drives for my backups. I dont keep the drives in my computer because you never know what will happen, a virus can affect all the drives and that would be bad so I use something like the products I have for review today, a hot-swap dock. Today for review I have the iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-WB Trayless Hot-Swap Cage with Wood Look Bezel which fits into a 5.25 bay and it allows you to put a standard 3.5 hard drive into it to transfer data back and forth and then just remove it when youre done. The iStar dock I have for review today is trayless meaning you can just put the drive in and thats it, no tray to mess with which I love as it makes life so much easier. What makes this dock special is the look of it, it has a wood finish, yes thats not something youd expect from something tech related but it works and it looks good. Read on "

OCZ Vertex 460 120 GB Review @ ocaholic
     Mon, Feb 03 2014 | 12:28P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Vertex 460 marks a new chapter in the history of OCZ. Meanwhile Toshiba has bought OCZ and the company now operates under the name OCZ Storage Solutions as a subsidiary of Toshiba. When it comes to the Vertex 460, we have basically a Vertex 450 lying in front of us with the latest NAND flash memory from Toshiba. Other than that the firmware needed to be upgraded an optimized in order to sequeeze maximum performance out of the drive."

iStarUSA BPN-2535DE-SA SATA Hot-Swap Drive Cage Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Feb 03 2014 | 8:31A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few days ago I reviewed a hot-swap cage from iStarUSA that allowed you to simply and easily transfer data to and from standard sized hard drives and I liked it very much. Today for review I have another hot-swap cage from iStar called the BPN-2535DE-SA which allows you to fit two notebook or SSD sized drives into the space of a standard hard drive. The cage is hot-swap capable meaning you can just put the drives in and pull them out as you need to, the cage also locks to secure the drives in place and its very simple to install and use.

VisionTek 120GB mSATA SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Feb 01 2014 | 3:26P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mSATA rush is officially on as desktop PC usage plummets and laptops, especially ultra-portables are the hot sellers. These devices are cramming more and more hardware into an ever shrinking space so why use a 2.5? x 1/4? drive when you can use an mSATA drive that?s roughly the size of a matchbook. VisionTek, best know for their graphics card products, has dipped their toes in the SSD pond and what better controller to start out with than the ├╝ber-popular SandForce SF-2200 series controller that has been used by nearly every SSD maker on the planet. We also saw them leverage this same controller paired up in their PCIe SSD recently. They sent us over a 120GB version to test out so we rolled up our sleeves and got to work..."

Toshiba PX02SMF020 200GB SAS SSD
     Fri, Jan 31 2014 | 3:26P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just like with most computer hardware components compared to just 2 years ago continuous price drops have finally rendered SATA SSDs (Solid State Drives) almost as mainstream as HDDs allowing more and more system manufacturers to integrate them into their systems regardless of target audience. Certainly SSDs are still at a huge disadvantage in terms of price/capacity compared to regular mechanical HDDs but on one hand most consumers don`t really have very large capacity needs while on the other you can always use the SSD just for OS (Operating System) needs and have everything else on a second or even on a third drive. However things are not the same for professionals and especially enterprise clients since both performance and storage capacity are crucial with cost following far behind. Thus far we`ve only focused in testing SAS HDD models manufactured by the leading companies in the field but since SSD prices have dropped quite a bit (both consumer and enterprise models) we decided to also start on SAS SSD reviews and what better way to do that than with the latest release by Toshiba, the PX02SMF020 200GB SAS 6Gb/s SSD"

Toshiba PX02SS 12Gbps SAS Enterprise SSD Review (400GB)
     Thu, Jan 30 2014 | 10:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Toshiba is a world leader in many different technologies and applications. In the NAND market, for instance, they supply components for some of our favorite SSDs. But, they havent really been known as a major player in turn-key storage products. While they have an impressive offering of mechanical drives, especially for automotive and industrial uses, they are dwarfed by the duopoly that is Western Digital and Seagate. For SSDs, they are a major OEM supplier, but dont have a major presence in the consumer market. Toshiba is a member of a select group that produces their own NAND. This puts them in the enviable position where they get to pay cost for the most expensive and important SSD component. They have the technology and manufacturing capabilities to put them on par with the Samsungs of the world in the SSD market, but that hasnt seemed to be a priority for them."

VisionTek Data Fusion PCIe SSD 240GB Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Jan 29 2014 | 12:40P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It?s been quite some time since we had a look at a PCIe based SSD. The PCIe trend is gaining steam, especially in enterprise applications, as the SATA III bandwidth gets maxed out. VisionTek, long known for their graphics cards, is using their PCIe expertise to get their footing in the SSD arena with their version of a PCIe SSD which is powered by a pair of SandForce SF-2281 controllers. They sent us over a 240GB version to scope out and we?re happy to do so. Although the product branding says Data Fusion drive, VisionTek let us know that the official drive name is simply called the VisionTek PCIe SSD so that?s how we?ll reference it in this article. Read on to see how it performs!"
