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."

Crucial Adrenaline made me forget
     Sat, May 19 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We would like to inform you about the latest review published on Myce.com. This time we reviewed the Crucial Adrenaline. This SSD uses Micron’s 25nm NAND technology, a Marvell controller and uses the SATA-3 protocol. Our editor was very happy with its performance. Here is a snippet of the conclusion: 'After a week of daily use, the Crucial Adrenaline made me forget that there was a mechanical drive installed. Starting with the impressive performance that you get, the simple installation of the software and the hardware, and after a week I have found something else that this solution was able to provide, a silent operation.'

Hard Drive Overdrive: Corsair's Accelerator SSD Cache Reviewed
     Sat, May 19 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid State Drives s are a fabulous way to boost a system's performance, but for all their strong points, they aren't an easy upgrade for a lot of people. Performance can vary significantly between manufacturers, only the most expensive drives can replace the need for an HDD in an enthusiast / data-heavy system, and reinstalling a full suite of software from scratch is a major headache. Corsair's Accelerator Series family of SSDs is designed to reduce the barriers to the SSD option by offering a solution that's accessible without the need to wipe your existing HDD or create a storage plan that ensures you make the best possible use of a small SSD, while leaving the bulk of your data on a rotating platter ...

Corsair Accelerator 60GB SSD Cache Drive Review @ Hardware Canucks

Posted by: STAFF
Corsair`s aptly named Accelerator series is supposed breathe new life into older HDD-based systems by caching your most-used information so it can be quickly accessed. But in a market that`s filled with similar solutions that perform the same basic functions, has Corsair been able to differentiate their offering? * *"

Posted by: STAFF
The Verbatim 500GB USB 3.0 Store `n` Go portable hard drive comes in a small and sleek package, yet manages to pack a significant punch for its size.

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.
