Vantec NST-D400SU3 NexStar SuperSpeed Dual Bay Hard Drive Dock Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, Oct 30 2012 | 10:54A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first will be the NST-D400SU3 aka NexStar SuperSpeed Dual Bay hard drive dock. After the introduction of enclosure, docks soon followed and in many cases became more useful than an enclosure. There is no assembling and disassembling, just plug and go. The D400SU3 is ideal as it can hold two drives. One added feature to this new model is you can take advantage of both high-speed connections..eSATA and USB 3.0."

Intel 335 Series 240GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 3:32P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we discussed in the outset of the article, there`s not a lot that`s changed from the 330/520 Series of drives except the move to smaller architecture 20nm NAND which helps make them more affordable. We know the smaller the architecture, the greater rate of errors that occur which must be dealt with by the controller so some firmware changes were likely incurred as well..."

     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 11:33A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has flexed their flash fabrication muscle yet again with the launch of their SSD 335 Series. We have a consumer oriented drive yielding good performance at an excellent price point, which is sure to put Solid State into the hands of even more users. Our only reservation was Intel`s choice to stick with the 9.5mm housing."

OCZ Technology: From SSDs to Layoffs @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Oct 27 2012 | 4:34P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once upon a time between 2004-2006, OCZ was a well-known manufacturer of high-end memory components and power supply units that sold under the motto Founded by Enthusiasts, for Enthusiasts. During the peak economy in 2007, OCZ Technology CEO Ryan Petersen proved his devotion to enthusiasts by purchasing PC Power & Cooling (May 2007), swiftly followed by elite system-builder Hypersonic PC (October 2007). Through the years that followed, OCZ`s brand name would successfully sell NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards, overclocker heatsinks, premium thermal pastes, hardcore gaming peripherals, and even a mind-controlled Neural Impulse Actuator (NIA). On March 2008, OCZ Technology revealed the industry`s first consumer Solid State Drive - the apex of their dedication towards high-performance computer hardware enthusiasts. The future looked so very bright, until stock value became the mission. As of 26 October 2012, many of the great minds behind OCZ`s enthusiast movement were without work."

Silicon Power Diamond D05 Limited Edition 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Sat, Oct 27 2012 | 3:53P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although USB Flash Drive prices have hit an all-time low the really large capacity models (128GB and above) are still not really cheap and thus not easy to for everyone to acquire. Luckily hard disk drive prices have also dropped quite a bit lately (always compared to the prices we had due to the floods in TW) and so right now the most cost-effective way for someone to carry large data backups around are 2.5 portable HDDs and as always there are countless models out there for someone to choose from with capacities of up to 2TB. However the enclosures of most 2.5 models are quite standard in design so we rarely see something different which could blend in better with our desks. Well it seems that our friends over at Silicon Power also believe that all portable HDDs shouldn`t look the same and their latest Diamond D05 Limited Edition 500GB USB 3.0 HDD is a statement to that since it`s guaranteed to get you into the Christmas spirit."

Patriot Gauntlet 320 Wireless HDD PCGTW320S @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 9:25A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`ve ever wanted a compact storage device that was small, had its own power supply, and wirelessly accessible, then the Patriot Gauntlet 320 fits the build perfectly. While capable of connecting via SuperSpeed USB 3.0, the Patriot Gauntlet is so much more. Designed as a portable hard disk drive with 320GB of storage space, 5.5-hour lithium-ion battery, and and integrated 150Mbps Wi-Fi b/g/n access point, the Patriot Gauntlet 320 (PCGTW320S) simultaneously streams media to up to five devices. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the Patriot Gauntlet 320 using Google Android and Apple iPhone devices as well as digital media players and the PC platform."

The Truth About SSD Performance Numbers @ TechwareLabs
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 9:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As someone who has purchased many different storage devices (HDD, SSD, flash drive, etc.), I have experienced first hand the confusion that can come from all the numbers we are bombarded with. Manufacturers throw numbers at us to back up their lofty claims of ever increasing performance. But what do all of these things mean? Some people may give up and just get the one that has the largest numbers plastered on the box. Hopefully after reading this article, that will not be you."
