Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD Full Review - Samsung Ups the Ante
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 11:06A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a faster, more optimized ARM Cortex R4 controller and NAND flash pushing data at 400 Mbps per channel, the Samsung 840 Pro has risen the bar yet another notch even while the competition was still trying to catch up to the 830 Series. If pricing can achieve parity with other SSDs out there, Samsung is sure to have a winner on its hands. The non-pro variant of the 840 will utilize TLC flash, which should offer a decent reduction in cost/GB for a minor dip in performance and endurance, which promises to make some form of 840 available to anyone seeking performance in the 100,000 IOPS range."

Micron P320h HHHL 700GB PCIe Enterprise SSD Review - Unbelievable IOPS and Absurd Endurance
     Mon, Oct 15 2012 | 9:25A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Micron P320h HHHL (Half-Height Half-Length) is a Gen 2.1 PCIe SSD capable of churning out 785K 4K random read IOPS and a little over 200K 4K random write IOPS at steady state. With Micron`s stash of SLC NAND flash memory, their custom controller, and some great command line and GUI tools, This PCIe SSD is ready to compete. Having had the P320h in our hands for several months now, it`s been a long process getting the P320h to this point, so it`s a pleasure to finally have the opportunity to see if the wait was worth it."

ADATA SX300 128GB mSATA SSD Review
     Sun, Oct 14 2012 | 9:42A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The closest apples to apples comparisons I was able to see came from the small file read/write tests where the drive`s bandwidth isn`t capped by the SATA2 interface. In these tests, we find the ADATA SX300 mSATA SSD to be matching up quite well with the other top competitors. The SandForce controller is certainly an excellent medium for excellent drive performance, even if limited by a SATA2 port on a SATA3 drive. Moving to an SSD on a laptop, in particular, creates a much better experience with must faster startup and shutdown times and improved battery life."

SSD NEWS: ADATA XPG SX300 256GB mSATA SSD Review
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 11:30A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following up on our recent review of the ADATA XPG SX300 mSATA SSD, we are now going to be running a similar analysis of the 256GB version of the same family. We have been curious as to what this particular review would hold, as we had done a review of the MyDigitalSSD SMART 256GB mSATA SSD some time ago and identification of that mSATA SSD displayed that it was a rebranded XPG SX300 256GB device exactly as we are testing today."

Posted by: STAFF
This year at FMS 2012, we were met one day by LSI representatives who politely handed us a non-nondescript cardboard box and simply said, Enjoy. We had been waiting for this box for some time and new it to be the LSI Nytro MegaRAID NMR 8120-4i Application Acceleration Card, part of the trinity of new LSI application accelerating products, all of which we hope to be reviewing in due time."
