The Force MP500 is a high-speed NVMe SSD targeting power users available in a variety of capacities: 480GB, 240GB and even a piddly 120GBer.

MyDigitalSSD BOOST 1TB External SSD Review
     Sat, Jan 07 2017 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today Benchmark Reviews has their new entry in the growing field of external, USB-connected solid state drives, the MyDigitalSSD BOOST 1TB external drive. Comprising two TLC SATA III 512GB SSDs in a RAID 0 internal array, the BOOST 1TB drive promises performance that exceeds that of SSDs connected to a SATA port, with maximum read and write speeds of 830MB/s and 730MB/s, respectively…but these speeds are only achievable if your computer has a USB Type C SuperSpeed+ port.

The 750 EVO
     Thu, Jan 05 2017 | 12:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year we covered the lower two capacities of the Samsung 750 EVO. We had some requests for a review of the 500GB model as soon as it was added to their lineup, and Samsung promptly sent a sample, but I delayed that review in the interest of getting the full 750 EVO lineup tested under our new storage test suite. I've been running batches of SSDs through this new suite, and we now have enough data points to begin cranking out some reviews. The 750 EVO was at the head of the line, so we will be starting with it first. I'm 'reissuing' our review as a full capacity roundup of the 750 EVO lineup as these are fresh results on a completely new test suite.

Crucial MX300 M.2 525GB SSD Review
     Wed, Jan 04 2017 | 3:40P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The M.2 2280 format of the Crucial MX300 525GB SSD is also featuring 3D TLC NAND, but comes with higher capacity packages. The same Marvell 88SS1074 quad-channel controller can be spotted on the PCB, along with a 512MB LPDDR3 RAM chip which acts as cache. The product does have thermal protection and thanks to the onboard capacitors it also sports power loss protection; thanks to the controller, MX300 also incorporates Dynamic Write Acceleration, Data Defense and RAIN technologies, AES 256-bit disk encryption but also DEVSLP power mode which saves power when installed on battery-powered devices."

ADATA XPG SX930 240GB SSD Review
     Wed, Jan 04 2017 | 3:16P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ADATA XPG lineup usually is aimed towards gamers. With the XPG SX930, it uses an enterprise level MLC NAND and also provides a five-year warranty. As SATA-based SSDs have sequential transfers hit the SATA III limit, choices are there and its as good as its going to get. While SSDs such as the Kingston UV400 and the long-running SanDisk Extreme II series SATA SSDs were long reviewed and recommended, it’s only natural to see if others offer something beneficial. Even if certain lineups are branded towards gamers, they usually satisfy a variety of end users.

ucial MX300 1TB SSD Storage Review
     Wed, Jan 04 2017 | 3:14P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial are releasing a lot of MX300 SSD including the recent 525Gb and 2TB versions. There’s also an M.2 version in the range as previously promised. If you can’t stretch to a 2Tb SSD and want a little more than the 525GB then we also have the 1TB model, which we have for review today. The Model is badged 1050MB on the box but it’s the 1TB model.

A Year With NVMe RAID 0 in a Real World Setup
     Sun, Jan 01 2017 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are a lot of misconception and some right information out there when it comes to the combination of solid state drives with RAID setups and what better way is there to get to the root of them than to create a real world test setup and find out. I have been running this setup for a year now and it is time to take a closer look at how well the two drives in my setup have performed.

KFA2 GAMER SSD L 480GB Review
     Sat, Dec 31 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SSD L 480GB coming from KFA2 and sporting the GAMER branding is meant to be positioned in the mainstream section and has the same performance levels as the Silicon Power S55 SSD we have tested back the summer. The product integrates a Phison PS31100-S10C-12 quad-channel controller along with Toshiba 15nm TLC NAND, but also 512MB of Kingston cache."

Crucial MX300 750GB SSD Review
     Wed, Dec 28 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up our review of the speedy and affordable Crucial MX300 SSD. The version we had a change to play with was an odd size - 750GB, but the performance wasn't odd. Performance was very good. It's not the fastest drive we've look at, but it's not far off either. When you consider the storage space and the price point, Crucial just might have a winner on their hands. Check our review for all the details.

Western Digital Blue (WD10SPCX) 1 TB Slim Mobile Hard
     Sat, Dec 24 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Western Digital launched the WD10JPVT, a 1 TB Scorpio Blue drive, it featured two of their new high-capacity 500 GB 2.5" platters. The drive was thus able to fit standard 2.5" storage bays. If you recall, the original 1 TB Scorpio Blue drive (the WD10TPVT) had a thickness of 12.5 mm, which prevented it from fitting most 2.5" storage bays, thereby relegating it mostly to special applications like portable USB drives. Even so, the standard 9.5 mm form factor of the WD10JPVT was too thick for the Ultrabooks. To accommodate these thinner notebooks, Western Digital created the WD10SPCX, which is basically an improved 7 mm version of the WD10JPVT.

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.
