Seagate GoFlex Desk 4TB USB 3.0 Hard Drive Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Tue, Jan 17 2012 | 11:31A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* The massive capacity of the Seagate GoFlex Desk 4TB USB 3.0 hard drive could probably store your entire media collection with room to spare - and with the USB 3.0 interface it can transfer it with lightening speed. The included software is more of a basic solution; if you want something a bit more robust you`ll have to pony up $50 or find another third-party solution."

Corsair Performance Pro 256GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Jan 14 2012 | 9:42A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair`s Performance 3 256GB SSD showed many enthusiasts that an SSD didn?t need to have ?SandForce? in the same sentence as ?performance? and that the new Marvell controller was a force to be reckoned with. Today we will be putting the Performance 3?s predecessor ?the Performance PRO- under the microscope to see if it can meet our already high expectations.,,,,,,,,"

Seagate Thunderbolt Technology Solutions @ CES 2012
     Fri, Jan 13 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

This week in Las Vegas, Seagate will also debut the long-awaited GoFlex® Thunderbolt Adapter and the GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt Adapter. Seagate first unveiled working prototypes of these two advanced interface products during the Intel Developers Forum in November of 2011. These two products are the first to use the new Thunderbolt technology for widespread use by consumers for single drive enclosures. The GoFlex Thunderbolt Adapter will be available during the first quarter of this year and the GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt Adapter is expected to be available before the second half of this calendar year.

Game on!

To help demonstrate the speed and performance of the new award-winning Momentus® XT solid-state hybrid hard drive, Seagate will be hosting a gaming demonstration with a head-to-head competition between two identical Alienware™ M18X dual-drive laptop computers. One will be equipped with two of Seagate’s new solid-state hybrid Momentus XT drives, and the other will include 7200RPM 2.5-inch hard disk drives. Visit the Seagate booth (#31846) in the South Hall of Las Vegas Convention Center for an opportunity to win a Momentus XT hybrid drive, which is nearly three times faster than a traditional hard disk drive and has many of the benefits of solid state with much greater capacity at 750GB. Seagate will also host a contest to win one Alienware M11X laptop package valued at over $2000.00. For more details on the Alienware laptop equipped with a Momentus XT drive, and to enter the contest, please visit seagate.com/ces.

Check on all the action and updates from Seagate by following @Seagate and @Seagate_con on Twitter and Like the Seagate page on Facebook or visit the “Seagate @ CES 2012” web page.

Pyro SE series the manufacturer
     Fri, Jan 13 2012 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot's lineup of SSDs has the performance bases covered, but with the new Pyro SE series the manufacturer hopes to better bridge the price gap between the Pyro and the Wildfire. The Pyro SE allows Patriot to offer a drive that performs nearly at the same level as the WildFire, but at a lower price point. Find out how much bang for the buck awaits enthusiasts looking to make an upgrade as we test both the 120GB and 240GB versions of these bad boys.

Corsair Performance Pro
     Wed, Jan 11 2012 | 12:58P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Performance Pro opts to use a Marvell controller as opposed to the more popular and widespread SandForce solutions, but can it serve as a counter weight to the SF-based SSDs, or does it just end up as dead weight? We pit the 256GB Performance Pro against similar drives to see where it stands.

Modding A Barracuda 7200.11 Into A VelociRaptor Rev. 1.2
     Wed, Jan 11 2012 | 10:31A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That`s a really catchy title, isn`t it? Who wouldn`t want to turn a slow 7,200 RPM hard disk drive into a super-fast 10,000 RPM Western Digital VelociRaptor? After all, the 300 GB model of the much- vaunted HDD speed king retails for US$ 199.99, while a 1.5 TB Barracuda 7200.11 only costs US$ 109.99. Imagine getting the performance of the VelociRaptor with the capacity and price of the Seagate Barracuda! The guys at TechwareLabs came up with an apparently nifty way to transform the 1.5 TB Barracuda 7200.11 hard disk drive into a VelociRaptor-killer. But before you go rushing out to grab yourself a 1.5 TB Barracuda 7200.11 hard disk drive, please note that their mod basically involves crippling the Barracuda..."

Kingston HyperX 240 GB @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Jan 10 2012 | 12:12P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston is a big name in the memory business and their HyperX system memory is legendary. When they decided to put that name on an SSD many people were sceptical, but it seems Kingston achieved their goal. In our testing we see the HyperX SSD cruise past the competition, making it the fastest SSD we ever tested."

Hard Disk Drive Myths Debunked! Rev. 4.9
     Tue, Jan 10 2012 | 12:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This guide was written in response to the numerous fallacies about the hard disk drive that are still being propagated in many forum discussions. As you read through this guide, you may think that some of these myths may have been made up. We wished that was true. We collected these myths from various discussions we heard or read over time. So, let?s get down to basics and examine some of these common fallacies or myths and debunk them! Here are the changes in this update : - Added Myth #51 on reviving a dead hard disk drive by hitting it on the sides when it spins up. - Added Myth #52 on rescuing data from a dead hard disk drive by moving its platters to an identical donor drive. - Updated Myth #26 with the theory on freezing hard disk drives that cannot spin up and statements from John Christopher, Senior Data Recovery Engineer at DriveSavers about this myth. We now have 52 HDD myths in this article!"

We`re looking at the cost effective drive offering from ADATA, the S510 120GB SATA III drive. Currently retailing for about $160, the primary reason for the lower cost is ADATA`s choice of asynchronous (Async) NAND flash memory. But what about performance? Let`s find out."
