Patriot Pyro SATA III Solid State Drive Review
     Mon, Aug 08 2011 | 3:58P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just a few short weeks after the release of its high-end WildFire-branded solid state drives, Patriot is at the ready with a new family of drives, dubbed Pyro. Like the WildFire, the similarly fire lovin’ Pyro is built around SandForce’s sought after SF-2200 series solid state storage processor. But with this newer series of drives, Patriot has paired the controller to less expensive asynchronous NAND flash memory. This pairing results in a much more affordable solid state drive that offers very similar performance to higher-end models with synchronous NAND flash memory in the vast majority of scenarios. There are exceptions, however...

OWC Electra 240GB Solid State Drive Review
     Thu, Aug 04 2011 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We are starting to get overloaded with these new mainstream drives that use SandForce SF-2281 controllers paired with asynchronous flash. These products are just coming in from every angle and I'm starting to get the feeling they'll outnumber the faster synchronous drives in terms of total SKUs offered in total by the Team SandForce manufacturers. This is good news for the mainstream market looking for good, actually, above average SSD performance, but not so good for those looking for the ultimate performance found with synchronous flash SandForce drives. If you've been following my latest reviews then you know I'm a bit twisted on these new mainstream SandForce drives. Don't get me wrong, I do understand they are not made for the enthusiast crowd looking for bleeding edge performance, but in many cases the price difference between the good async drives and the exceptional sync drives isn't that great."

Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD
     Wed, Aug 03 2011 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Less than a week ago, we looked at Corsair's flagship SSD with the Force GT but while cutting edge technology is great to drool over, there's a huge market out there for a more affordable high performance solution. This is where the Force 3 series comes in since it can be found for less than $210 and can compete with some of the best drives around.

RunCore Pro V SATA II Plus 120GB Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, Aug 02 2011 | 4:48P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At Computex 2011 Cameron was hand delivered a new product from RunCore that we weren't expecting. The new RunCore Pro V Plus builds upon the success of the original Pro V, but changes the script a bit by using new IMFT 25nm flash. Drives with this controller / flash combination made a lot of noise in the tech press a few months ago. To make a long story short, one SSD manufacturer (not RunCore) made changes to their build of materials list and started selling new 25nm drives under the same model name as the older 3xnm drives. The new 25nm offerings are a bit slower than the older models and also have less user accessible capacity. Obviously a change big enough to affect performance and user capacity should be noted and that is exactly what RunCore is doing with their new Pro V Plus model. For the most part we've been pretty quiet about the whole deal just telling people to stay away from the undocumented model affected. Part of that was due to not having a SandForce SF-1200 drive paired with 25nm flash, but that all changes this week; we now have two of them in house including one from RunCore and the other from a new company call Strontium. Today we're going to take a quick look at a bare RunCore Pro V Plus that was hand delivered to us."

WD Scorpio Black 750GB Notebook Hard Drive Review
     Mon, Aug 01 2011 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Western Digital Scorpio Black Series are known to be some of the fastest 7200 notebook hard drives that money can buy. The largest capacity drive in the Scorpio Black family is the 750GB drive that goes by model number WD7500BPKT. We take a look at this 750GB monster to see how this 7200 RPM drive with 16 MB of cache performs on the test bench and then in a notebook for some real world testing! Quote: "The WD Scorpio Black 750GB laptop hard drive is no slouch as we saw really impressive performance numbers that actually shocked us a bit. For example we saw 128MB/s read and 125MB/s write speeds in the CrystalDiskMark sequential read/write tests and these are great for any traditional hard drive. Just because notebook hard drives are only 2.5" in size doesn't mean that you can't find good performance with them..."

Force GT SATA 6Gb/s 120GB
     Sat, Jul 30 2011 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When someone asks me about upgrading their computer for the most noticeable performance gain, I commonly tell them to install an SSD. The reason is that both your start-up and shut-down times will drastically decrease. Likewise, you will experience shorter transfer times and faster loading on any program installed on the drive. These are only some of the perks that you'll quickly gain by using an SSD, such as the Corsair Force GT. Having said that, the reduced power consumption in SSDs make them ideal for use in laptops and netbooks. This upgrade does, however, come at a cost."

Corsair Force GT 120GB Solid State Drive Review
     Fri, Jul 29 2011 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Even before the Corsair Force GT arrived at my door, I knew it would be hot. I get a lot of emails from readers and don't mind answering each and every one, but right after our review of the Force 3 went live I was flooded with emails asking about the Force GT. The only other product that I can think that generated so much interest to date was the Fusion-io ioDrive. The Force GT has some nice features that allow it to stand out from the rest of the Team SandForce products. The first is Corsair's known reliability and exceptional customer support. The drive itself is also red, much cooler than the run of the mill black SSDs floating around. Then there is the mystery over what components Corsair chose to use in their flagship SSD."

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.
