Plextor M7V M.2 SATA SSD Review
     Fri, May 06 2016 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Flash based storage can really wake up an older PC due to it's massive increase in speed and decrease in seek time as compared it its rotating disk counter part. As the price of flash memory continues to drop, we start to see SSD's prices per gigabyte creep ever closer to mechanical hard drive's price per gigabyte. To further drive …

MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 5 Eco M.2 SSD Review (480GB)
     Wed, May 04 2016 | 2:55P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve been able to test our fair share of SSDs over the years and, to this date, there remains a constant. Prices drop. Where we once saw a 32GB SSD peak at $5000 in 2007, today’s world is vastly different and 1TB SSDs are now available at just over the $300 mark. Value is key in technology and has always been. On the test bench today, we have the MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 5 Eco M.2 480GB SATA 3 SSD and this SSD just may be the best value available for the dollar right now at $129.99. To think that this little SSD is just shy of that .25/GB mark is incredible…but can it perform?

     Wed, May 04 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just as you wouldn’t use a low-end graphics card for high-end usage, you shouldn’t use the wrong hard disk drive in your storage system either. There is a reason for every product and you should always pick the one suited for the task at hand, especially when you deal with your storage. Today I’m taking a closer look at Seagate’s impressive 8TB NAS HDD and we will take a look at how well it performs.

Intel 750 Series 400GB NVMe Solid State
     Mon, May 02 2016 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Intel introduced their 750 Series solid state drives last year. Back then and even now not many people know what NVMe is. NVMe stands for Non-Volatile Memory Express and it is a protocol that has been designed from the ground up to capitalize on the low latency and internal parallelism of flash-based storage devices, mirroring the parallelism of contemporary CPUs, platforms and applications. NVMe reduces latency and allows for more transactions per second, which will increase application performance. NVMe is also uses less CPU power than AHCI, this means you have more CPU cycles for other activities. Intel’s 750 Series were the first solid state drives available to consumers to make use of this technology. Today we will be looking at the lowest capacity drive is the series, which is 400GB. It boasts sequential read and write speeds of up to 2200 MB/s and 900 MB/s respectively. That is quite impressive, let’s take a look!"

Crucial MX200 250 GB SSD Review
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 12:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You might want to buy an inexpensive SSD, but hardly anyone wants to compromise on safety and durability. After testing the Crucial MX200 1 TB and MX200 500 GB SSD, we have now also tested the Crucial MX200 250 GB SSD. The MX200 250 GB SSD is quite inexpensive due to its lower capacity, but offers reliability and data security. If you have to take compromising performance in buying, we show in the following review at OCinside.

Plextor M7V 512GB SSD and M.2 SSD review
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Plextor released a new value series SSD tagged under the M7V series SSDs, with that 'V' not for vendetta or victory, it's for value. At 26 cents per GB the M7V series is all about delivering a product at a low price to you. Street prices could be even lower.
