Hitachi UltraStar 7K3000 3TB SATA 3 HDD Review
     Sat, Aug 20 2011 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest enterprise class UltraStar 7K3000 3TB SATA 3 HDD by Hitachi GST may not be worlds apart in terms of raw performance when compared to its smaller brother the DeskStar 7K3000 3TB SATA 3 HDD but that's just about the only thing that these two drives have in common.

Kingston HyperX 240GB SATA 3 SSD Review
     Sat, Aug 20 2011 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our review today examines the Kingston HyperX 240GB SATA 3 SSD. The HyperX is Kingstons first offering of a SATA 3 SSD and their first partnership with SandForce through use of their SF-2281 6Gbps processor, a processor which has taken the SSD community by storm. With full intention of their HyperX line being the absolute best, Kingston has included all the bells and whistles and taken their time in producing a very attractive total package. The performance lies at the heart of the beast, however, and performance would tell the tale of the tape.

The Silicon Power Stream S10 does not only look sleek, but also ships in two metallic color choices. On top of that the 750GB external hard drive offers very good performance and a great set of accessories. We take the drive for a spin and rip it apart to see what makes it tick.

Strontium Matrix Series 120GB Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Aug 20 2011 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Frequent followers of our SSD reviews have already been introduced to Strontium, a SSD manufacturer from Singapore. Our first review of the company's product was the Gamma Series 115GB published last week. The Gamma Series is Strontium's entry level SSD that uses a SandForce SF-1200 controller and pairs it with 25nm IMFT flash. The Matrix Series drive that we are looking at today is based on a Marvell controller and for the most part is a rebadged Micron C400 SATA III SSD." As you may know, Micron has their hands in many jars and is the M in the IMFT joint flash production partnership with Intel. Micron also manufactures and OEMs SSDs for other companies with Strontium being just one of them. The largest partner receiving Micron C400 drives is Crucial, a division of Micron and reseller of the Crucial m4 products that we've already reviewed in the past."

     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink

We have explored many hard drive enclosures over the year, many of them pretty simple in operation and some that offered more for the money like encryption or ease to install. This new enclosure from Silverstone praises on the latter as it makes hooking up a drive painless and easy. The RVS02, which is from the Raven line of component from Silverstone, sleek, good looking and fast.

Western Digital Scorpio Blue 1TB Mobile Hard Drive Review
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mobile warriors have their advantages, but storage isn't one of them. It's not uncommon to see desktop users with multiple TBs of hard drives, but notebook users tend to suffer with 500 or 750GB options. Western Digital, with its 9.5mm tall WD10JPVT, wants to change that - and trust us when we say that it's well worth looking into.

Guide to Using the Native 7MC Movie Library
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:13P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of the box, the 7MC Movie Library will display the default file types that it can play. (Link to microsoft article about default file types) In addition to the files on the this list, the movie library will also display movies that are ripped from DVDs and stored in video_ts and audio_ts folders. In order to have other file types displayed (such as MKV and .iso) which are not natively supported by 7MC, you will need to enable this file type via a “hack” or workaround. For example, with .mkv files this type is enabled when a splitter such as Haali media splitter is installed. Head to the forums if you are having issues with a specific file type being displayed in Media Center. Below is a list of common formats and their native (out of the box) support within 7MC.

Patriot Wildfire 120GB SSD
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Before getting the Wildfire, we had seen our fair share of the Sandforce invasion that is currently running amok in the SSD market. Expecting yet another rebrand of the same tried, tested and boring design, we didn't really expect much from Patriot's latest flagship drive. But instead of the same old story, we've found an SSD which dares to be different and exceeds every one of our expectations.

Cubitek Magic Cube 3HDD review
     Wed, Aug 17 2011 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cubitek figured, heck .. it's all in our own brand name, let's design a modular chassis series under the name Magic Cube. One main chassis will be housing your motherboard and PSU, and two other smaller 'cubes' will house HDDs and Optical storage units and such. That completely overhauls the design of any regular chassis, as all of the sudden you have three units housing your PC.

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.
