Samsung 960 EVO M.2 NVMe SSD Review (250GB/1TB)
     Fri, Nov 25 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month we took a look at the best performing SSD, Samsung's 960 PRO. Packed with Samsung's latest MLC V-NAND, new Polaris controller, and put together with their engineering expertise, it easily sped off to the top of our charts. Not only that, but it did so without even utilizing their latest NVMe 2.0 driver. The 960 Pro is the enthusiast class SSD to get if you are looking for the best of the best. With that being said, Samsung has also released a new mainstream SSD which, based on the spec sheet, looks like it packs quite the punch. It is the Samsung 960 EVO and it could be the mainstream SSD to buy if you are looking for top performance for a cheaper cost.

ADATA SE730 External SSD Review (250GB) – USB Type-C
     Wed, Nov 23 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA SE730 differs from many other SSDs, however, as it contains the characteristics of being waterproof, dustproof and shockproof, in addition to its small size. If you want storage that will overcome the elements, the SE730 just might be what you're looking for. In addition, this external SSD has a great price and can be found at Amazon for $120. All in all, the ADATA SE730 is a solid external SSD that is as attractive as it is value driven, has decent performance, and can be relied upon for storage of data up to 250GB. Great drive but, come on ADATA, let's see some higher capacities. Recommended.

Samsung SSD 960 Evo 500GB Review
     Mon, Nov 21 2016 | 12:08P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We liked what we saw when we tested Samsung's SSD 960 Pro a month ago, however we've been waiting for the mainstream bound 960 Evo which should bring similarly impressive throughput for less. On paper, you should be paying 20% less for the 960 Evo with an impact on performance that could be considerably less than that.

Today I’m taking a closer look at the Apacer AS682 Armor+ solid state drive with a capacity of 250GB.

QNAP TS-451A 4-bay Dual-core NAS with QuickAccess Review
     Mon, Nov 21 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TS-451A Dual-Core NAS with QuickAccess packs enough performance for home users and is also able to perform in SOHO environments; the product is available in two flavors, 2GB and 4GB and while the 2GB version works well for most tasks except Virtualization Station & Container Station (Linux Station), which do require a minimum of 4GB RAM installed. The product also introduces the QuickAccess USB port novelty, which allows us to operate the server as it would have been connected on the local network of the current PC, but physically connected via a regular USB 3.0 cable; this type of connection does also require a set of drivers to be installed from the QNAP website but it works flawlessly in the end."

     Sun, Nov 20 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review I’ll be looking at the HyperX Savage 240GB SSD. This one of the fastest single drive SSDs you can buy and is using the Phison PS3110-S10 controller. The controller plays a big role in determining drive performance as it will act as a gateway from the memory array to the drive interface.

WD My Passport Wireless Pro Review
     Fri, Nov 18 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
External storage is commonplace now, but traditional standalone storage products sometimes leave a large number of devices hanging. I've got a 2TB external drive plugged into a USB 3 port, for example, which is great for the main PC, but it doesn't help much with the laptop, iPhone and iPad. That's where some of the latest wireless storage products like the WD My Passport Wireless Pro we're going to be showing you here comes in. Through creative piggy-backing onto your Wi-Fi network, you can add multiple terabytes of additional storage that can be accessed by any wirelessly-connected device...

With dozens of hours testing storage devices under our belt in the last year alone, we have a pretty clear idea of what are the top devices you should buy right now, divided into five categories: Best performance SSD, best value SSD, best hard drives, best external storage device and best home/SMB NAS.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
