Icy Dock MB994SP-4SB-1 Full Metal Quad Bay 2.5in HDD & SSD Backplane Cage Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Icy Dock MB994P-4S-1SB 4-in-1 Hot Swap Backplane Cage can hold up to four 2.5 drives in a single 5.25 drive bay. Unlike the Icy Dock MB994P-4S however, the MB994P-4S-1SB lacks the SAS HDD support, requiring only a single 4-pin Molex for power while adding a toggle switch for the built-in pair of 40mm rear exhaust fans. Built with SECC, the Icy Dock MB994SP-4S-1SB is extremely durable and provides drive protection as well as heat dissipation even in the most strenuous and rugged computing environments.///"

Kingston Factory Tour - Making of an SSD from Start to Finish
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 9:45A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We were picked up from the Hsin Chu high speed rail station by our friendly marketing contact at Kingston who drove us directly to Kingston`s ten SMT-line ready Taiwan factory, which is about 15 minutes from our entry point back to Taipei. We were told that this factory only (we laughed when Kingston said its Taiwan facility is a small operation) has 600 employees. With the introduction set, it brings us to the reason for this article and that is our factory tour. We were exclusively invited into the Kingston factory where few media have been and got shown the process of making an SSD from start to finish. Due to media restrictions, we were not allowed to produce a video of the tour, but we were allowed to take photos. Obviously Kingston is a market leader in memory and SSD products and there is plenty of sensitive machinery and such - and we needed to respect that and their rules."

OCZ Vertex 4 Indilinx Everest 2-Infused SSD Review
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ Technology’s Vertex series of solid state drives have been consistently popular with enthusiasts since their initial arrival in 2009. OCZ has made significant changes with each successive generation of Vertex solid state drives, but generally speaking, each one has offered strong performance and was considered among the best overall values in the consumer SSD space. The original Vertex SSD was built around the Indilinx Barefoot controller, which was competitive when first released, but didn’t quite perform as well as some of the higher-end drives available at the time. The Vertex 2 and 3, however, featured SandForce controllers and both drives proved to be among the best performing SSDs of their generation. With the new Vertex 4 we’ll be showing you here today though, OCZ once again turns to Indilinx—now wholly owned by OCZ...

Icy Box IB-PL500D Powerline Network Adapter Kit @ Rbmods
     Thu, Apr 05 2012 | 9:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Powerline networking might be the future if the WIFI does not get any faster within a reasonable time period. Because of this manufacturers are pushing their powerline network adapter kits now at various speeds to compete with WIFI. We got a new kit from Icy Box that should perform up to 500Mbits /s , but as we know the speed varies depending on how new the electrical wiring is. Lets find out how this kit can perform!"

OCZ Vertex 4 SSD 256GB and 512GB review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 10:35A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the OCZ Vertex 4 256 and 512GB SSD. Armed with a new Indilinx Everest 2 controller this SSD is advertised as one of the fastest on the block with screaming IOPs performance. Obviously it will pack a 6Gbps SATA interface and big NAND Flash memory partitions. This SATA3 version as such can deliver speeds of up to 535MB/s of bandwidth and 85K 4KB IOPS. Lets have a look"

OCZ Vertex 4 512GB SSD Initial Review - Vertex Returns to its Indilinx Roots (Firmware Progression Testing)
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 10:25A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve entitled this section `Thoughts` because I won`t consider the Vertex 4 `Final` until it sees a second shipping firmware revision. The Vertex 4 is an exciting product with a very capable Indilinx controller, and while I can understand OCZs desire to bring it to market as quickly as possible, I can`t help but think their hardware team beat their firmware team to the punch."

OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB with Indilinx Controller @ ocaholic
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since OCZ has bought Indilinx, the manufacturer presented - with the Octane - an entry level SSD which offers an attractive price point. With the Vertex 4 OCZ releases their new performance SSD, which is based on the latest Indilinx IDX400M00-BC Controller. This is reason enough for us to be curious about how this thing is going to perform in our benchmark parcours. In this review we`re going to take a closer look at the 256 Gigabyte model which should good performance and at an attractive price point."

OCZ Vertex 4 Indilinx 256GB & 512GB SSD Reviews @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So far, OCZ`s decision to acquire Indilinx seems to be paying off as their proprietary controller now ranks, in our eyes at least, as one of the best you can buy while others are still leveraging third party controllers. Having control of the components has its advantages, positively impacting both cost and quality control - both of which are supremely important in this competitive marketplace. The Indilinx Everest 2 controlled drives are really going to give the other large players, namely SandForce, Marvell, Samsung and Intel serious competition and the incentive to step up their game..."

OCZ Vertex 4 512GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 8:57A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ`s Vertex series has been the de facto leader in the SSD market for the last few years and their new Vertex 4 is looking to continue that tradition. Equipped with the new Everest 2 controller and a relatively low price point, this new drive sure looks impressive but it will take more than just that to dislodge the entrenched SandForce competition. * *"

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.
