Mach Xtreme MX-DS Turbo 120 GB SSD @ techPowerUp
     Sun, Nov 20 2011 | 7:35A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mach Xtreme`s MX-DS Turbo SSD is based on the Sandforce SF-2281 controller which features support for the SATA 6 Gbps interface among other improvements. In our real world testing we pit the MX-DS Turbo against a handful of competing solid state drives to check whether it can stand out in the crowd of Sandforce drives."

Intel 320 Series 160GB SSD
     Sat, Nov 19 2011 | 9:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the average user, who is just as or more concerned with reliability and preventing data loss, the 320?s solid feel makes the drive a highly recommended upgrade from an existing mechanical drive or lower-performance SSD. The capacitors included in the drive ensure that even during power loss, all data in buffers will get written to the NAND flash. This data ?bulletproofing? offers tremendous peace of mind (but you should still use a UPS, especially in a business setting)."

Posted by: STAFF

Hitachi G-DRIVE Mini & Touro Mobile Pro 750 GB Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 10:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Both have a very small footprint and can fit easily in a pocket, backpack, purse, or laptop bag. The free 3 GB cloud storage space is a very nice inclusion to the Touro Mobile Pro. If you have any extremely important irreplaceable-if-lost data, then you can copy it both to the drive and cloud storage for triple-redundant protection! If 3 GB isn`t enough, 250 GB storage is also offered for $49/year."

Seagate New Barracuda XT 3TB Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 9:40P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A dual core ARM processor with 64MB of DDR2 SDRAM on board, along with Seagate`s OptiCache technology are said to improve performance by up to 45% over prior generation drives. Needless to say expectations were high going into the testing. In just about every test the New Barracuda XT outperformed the previous generation product. Higher average transfer rates and reduced access times mean an improved feel once you are in the operating system. The drive specification sheet shows a sustained read speed specification of 156MB/s, which the drive exceeded in my testing. This makes the New Barracuda XT the fastest spindle based drive I have tested to date, giving you capacity and speed all in one package."

Raidon GR5630-WSB3 4-Bay Desktop Storage System Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 9:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to storage, it`s not enough to offer just a bunch of space because storage is a commodity that even the most basic of systems today can offer. What you need is a compelling reason to spend your hard-earned dollars and if you`re a one-trick pony like the GR5630-WSB3, then speed and price are your major selling points and the unit comes up short in this regard. From a price standpoint, the GR5630-WSB3 can be had for around $300. The Thecus N4100PRO can be found for $350, with other 4-bay units from QNAP and Synology ranging from $300 - $400. A NAS unit offers a lot more features and flexibility, which leads me to conclude that the value just isn`t there in the GR5630-WSB3."

G-Technology G-DRIVE Mini 750GB HDD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 9:58A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The company G-Technology (or G-tech as they referred to) may not sound familiar but its parent company Hitachi is well-known worldwide. They have a rather large line of external storage products that are all aimed towards Mac users but are just as at home connected to a PC. Today, we`ll be having a look at their G-DRIVE mini 750GB external drive. Immediately upon seeing the drive, the similarities to the Mac Pro desktop computer are clearly evident with the brushed aluminum finish, sleek design and perforated exterior. If you own an Apple system and are vain about having your hardware accessories that match your system, it doesn`t get much better than this..."

OCZ Technology Agility 3 SandForce 240GB SATA 6G SSD Review
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 5:18P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the switch to asynchronous flash memory makes the Agility 3 cheaper to produce and therefore sell, the performance dynamic can shift in either direction, varying with what you plan to do with the drive. Many users saw the same type of thing back with the Agility 2 / Vertex 2, and some users actually preferred the cheaper drive performance wise. We may see the same thing here once users (and us) get some actual seat-of-the-pants time logged with it."

Intel 320 Series 300GB SSD Performance Review
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 3:12P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are thrilled to see Intel push out a third generation of their own native controller, but it has left us wondering what is in store next. As much as we would love it, we have yet to see an Intel-branded SATA 6Gb/sec part. For now we`ll just have to stick with the improved IOPS, latency, and write speeds of the 320 Series. I`m guessing these will outsell the 6Gb/sec parts, mainly because the larger and cheaper flash memory can give Intel enough price overhead to constantly undercut the competition in the coming months. As always, we will keep an eye on what`s coming, and pass this onto you as we dig deeper."

OCZ Technology Vertex 3 SandForce 2281 240GB SATA 6G SSD Review
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 2:36P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ was the first to get next generation SandForce out the door, and with a consumer Vertex 3 following just 1 week after their Pro model, they seem to have closed their lead-time gap considerably. We were happy to see the consumer model not suffer too greatly from the reduction in spare area necessary to hand more available storage space to the user. The only thing left to do is work a few remaining kinks out of the firmware and start shipping."

Patriot Pyro SE Solid State Drive @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Nov 12 2011 | 11:42P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Benchmark Reviews has previously tested the Patriot PyroSE, a second-generation SandForce SF-2281 solid state drive, which is considered their standard-IOPS enthusiast storage solution. Now we return to test the Patriot Pyro SE, which pushes the throttle on synchronous NAND flash for the best operational performance possible. Patriot rates the Pyro SE to deliver SATA 6Gb/s read speeds up to 550 MB/s with 4K aligned operations reaching 85,000 IOPS. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the Patriot Pyro SE SSD, 240GB model PPSE240GS25SSDR, against the leading competitors to find out just how much speed and performance this new solid state drive really offers."

SSD NEWS: OCZ To Launch New Petrol SATA 3 SSD Line
     Sat, Nov 12 2011 | 1:30P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just when we think things might slow for the holidays, OCZ sneaks in yet another SSD release which has to be part of their new Octane family. The OCZ Petrol will be the second `Indilinx Infused` SSD release by OCZ based on their Indilinx Everest platform. The Petrol will be available in capacities of 128, 256 and 512GB and is SATA 3 with the 512GB reaching max speeds of 370MB/s read and 250MB/s write transfer speeds. They will also carry a warranty of three years. Pricing in the US has yet to be released, however, initial estimates in the Asia`s list the 128GB at $180, 256GB at $399 and the 512GB version at $837."

Seagate Barracuda 3TB Review- A 1TB / Platter Monster is Unleashed @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Oct 31 2011 | 11:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Platter size may not mean much to everyday consumers but storage enthusiasts know that larger platters are usually a ticket to first class performance. Previously, large capacity drives used 750GB disks to achieve their required space but Seagate`s new Barracuda 3TB is the first with three 1TB platters. Coupled with a very fast controller, this new drive has what it takes to literally blow the doors off the competition."

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.
