Intel 520 240GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Feb 06 2012 | 11:53A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve been hearing about and anticipating new Intel`s Cherryville SSDs for some time now they are finally being released in the guise of the 520 series.  They are built around the same SandForce SF2281 controller we have come to know from numerous other SSDs but Intel has taken it upon themselves to equip these drives with a custom firmware and high end NAND.  But is this enough to set the 520 series apart from in a cluttered market? "

Intel 520 Cherryville Series 240GB SSD Review in RAID 0 @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Feb 06 2012 | 11:40A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has been one of the mainstays of the SSD world and are one of the most trusted names and respected leaders in the computer industry. Their groundbreaking X25-M SSDs were the gold standard for which all other drives were judged for quite some time. That said, the SandForce SF-2281 controller has been out for close to a year now and featured in drives from just about every SSD manufacturer - so why is Intel just now releasing their SF-2281 SSD, code named Cherryville? In one word, firmware..."

Corsair Performance Series Pro 128GB Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 9:44A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being a larger capacity size we compared the drive to the 240GB drives from Team SandForce products and again the Performance Pro performed well. The one area the 256GB Performance Pro didn`t do so well in, well, let me first say in relation to the SF-2281 controlled drives, is when the drive was filled to 50% capacity. In this very important test the Performance Pro 256GB was a bit slower. So, to sum it up the 256GB Performance Pro was very fast, but not fast enough to take the performance crown in its capacity size group. Today we`re looking at the 128GB model. For me this review started out as another run-and-gun, get it over with because people will want to see it, but I won`t be that impressed type of review. The drive sat on a shelf for a couple of days while I played Battlefield and tried to get over my post CES depression caused mainly by the fact that I can`t get good steak back at home like I can get there. Now that I`ve tested this drive I feel much better, although it would be nice to get some good steak still."

SSD NEWS: OCZ Nocti 128GB SATA 2 mSATA SSD Review
     Fri, Feb 03 2012 | 9:22A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ Nocti SATA 2 120GB mSATA SSD is on our bench today and, Welcome to the Year of the mSATA SSD! Three years ago, one wouldn`t have imagined that we could get such power from an SSD that is 1/3 the size of a business card and the height of a 25 cent piece. This year already, mSATA SSDs have become standard in ultrabooks with talk now of cached SSDs present in the not far too distant future. This is a performance and capacity guarantee win-win for the consumer."

Synology DS-212 Two-Bay NAS Review @ Tweaknews

Synology has taken their winning formula for a NAS and improved upon it further with the DS-212.

SSD NEWS: MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 128GB mSATA SATA 2 SSD Review

Posted by: STAFF
Our evaluation today will be a detailed analysis of the MyDigitalSSD 128GB 50mm `Bullet Proof` mSATA SSD and the price point ( a mere $179.99) and timing of this SSDs arrival couldn`t be better. Considering the latest entries of laptops with dual mSATA/HDD storage access along with the first round of new Ultrabook family releases, mSATA SSDs are making an impression in a big way. Their low price point is vital to upcoming Ultrabook releases and consumer availability is a huge plus."

OWC DIY Solid State Drive Upgrade Kit Review @ circuitREMIX
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 2:35P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our past Solid State Drive Roundup, we found that the performance offered by SSDs is nothing short of phenominal. Apple, a company that prides itself in its focus of customer experience knows this, and as a result offers the availability of SSDs across it`s Mac computing product line. However when looking at its MacBook Pro line, the cost of configuring an Apple built-to-order SSD powered notebook is steep. Apple offers 128GB, 256GB and 512GB SSD storage upgrades at the prices of $200, $600 and $1200 respectively (as per the Apple Store in Canada). Luckily there are vendors like Other World Computing who specialize in providing products and upgrade solutions catering towards Apple users. Their offering which we will be examining in this article is a full SSD upgrade solution for Apple notebooks."

Samsung 470 Series 128GB SSD Review
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review at ocinside.de the Samsung 470 Series 128GB SSD is compared against some SSDs of ADATA, Crucial, Mach Extreme Technology and OCZ. Since it is a SATA II SSD, it surely will not be able to keep up with the top 6 Gb/s drives, but let us take a look at some benchmark results, to see what Samsung can get out of the 30nm memory in combination with their Samsung controller.

Seagate Barracuda 3 TB Hard Drive Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 10:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most enthusiasts will favor SSDs for their main boot drive rather than a mechanical hard drive thanks to the vast performance benefits available. However, there is still a large market for high performance mechanical drives which offer a much larger capacity for storage of large files. Today we are going to look at the latest Barracuda hard drive from Seagate, which offers no less than 3 TB of storage space."

SSD NEWS: Samsung SSD SM825 400GB Enterprise SSD Review - 3Gbps eMLC Data Center Edition
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 9:22A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In reviewing the Samsung SSD SM825 Data Center Edition 400GB eMLC solid state drive, we understand that we have wandered off the beaten path of normal consumer reviews but there are some things in this SSD that will just grab your attention. Although it`s interesting to see that Samsung has chosen its own premium eMLC NAND flash memory in the SM825, we believe that it is the total write endurance that truly stands out in this enterprise class SSD."

REVIEW: ADATA S511 120GB SSD @ PureOverclock
     Wed, Feb 01 2012 | 11:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`re looking at the enthusiast drive offering from ADATA, the S511 120GB SATA III drive. This drive uses more expensive synchronous NAND than its sibling we recently reviewed the S510, but it comes with a very attractive price tag of only $170. That`s a bargain for the mainstream users who dream of top performance. But can this SSD live up to our performance standards?"

Synology DS212 2-Bay NAS Review
     Wed, Feb 01 2012 | 11:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Synology products I`ve seen so far tend to excel in the ease of use category. I would be comfortable dropping a DS212 off at my mother`s house and letting her sort the installation and connections. I couldn`t say the same thing about the typical QNAP or Thecus products I`ve tested in the past. Those products are easy for TweakTown readers to setup, but nothing like the Synology DS212. A large reason for that is the way Synology configures their software layer. The QNAP and Thecus products are more tech based while the DS212 is more laymen, like a toaster, you get a couple of dials and a big lever to pull before everything works exactly like you want it to. Users looking to go head on into technology bliss still have all the other options to fine tune their NAS appliance, but it isn`t a requirement."

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.
