Basic Solid State Drive Features Explained
     Sun, Jan 31 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we report on storage news as well as in our reviews, we use a lot of terms and features that might not be familiar to everyone. The words and acronyms sound good and you chose your products based on whether they are present or not. But what do they actually mean? That is something that I’ll try to explain a little more today. I think there is a little bit for everyone here, whether you’re an advanced system builder or new to the area.

Crucial BX200 480 GB SSD Review
     Thu, Jan 28 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the Crucial C300, m4, M500, M550, MX100, MX200 and BX100, today on OCinside.de we have tested the latest BX200 SSD from Crucial which is intended mainly for price-conscious buyers. According to the review of the BX100 with 500 GB and 1 TB MLC memory we take now a close look at the BX200 SSD 480 GB TLC NAND. Crucial is breaking new ground, but only partly able to convince us with the inexpensive BX200. This week Crucial has provided also the brand-new MU02 BX200 SSD firmware, we have tested in comparison to the pre-installed MU01. Let us start right now with the scope of delivery and the price of the Crucial CT480BX200SSD1 SSD, followed by the technical details, the large SSD benchmark comparison and performance in practice.

Netgear ReadyNAS RN212 Network Attached Storage
     Wed, Jan 27 2016 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Netgear has released a new line of high-end-yet-consumer-friendly Network Attached Servers (NAS) dubbed the RN210 family. They are available in both two-and-four bay models, and this time around we’ll be examining its two-bay model, the RN212. Keep in mind, however, that almost everything we cover here applies to the four-bay model as well, which goes by the moniker RN214. The big deal with this NAS is that, according to Netgear, it’s the “only ARM-based NAS that delivers full HD 1080p to 480p transcoding,” with the purpose being the ability to stream content from the NAS to your smart phone or tablet without any dropped frames. Another notable is that it uses the BTRFS file system, which is a copy-on-write (CoW) system designed to improve data reliability and scalability...

Vantec NexStar MX Dual 2.5-inch Hard Drive Enclosure
     Wed, Jan 27 2016 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Data redundancy is a thing that not many people think about. I myself lost about a year of photos because I had them stored on a drive that died and did not have a backup. One of the easiest ways to have data redundancy is to setup a RAID 1 array. Vantec wants to makes this easy with their new NexStar MX Dual 2.5-inch hard drive enclosure (NST-225MX-S3). This small enclosure supports two 2.5-inch hard drives that you can put in Individual/JBOD/RAID0/RAID1 modes. So if you are not going for data redundancy, but rather speed you can set them up in a RAID 0 array. Since this enclosure supports 2.5-inch drives that means you can use solid state drives! The enclosure uses USB 3.0 so your transfer speeds will be very fast too! Let’s take a look and see what it can do!"

Bullet Proof 5 Eco 240GB SSD Review
     Sun, Jan 24 2016 | 11:21P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In today’s storage review, I’m taking a closer look at a solid state drive from a company that we don’t test quite as often, but it isn’t the first MyDigitalSSD drive have tested either. The newest MyDigitalSSD drive is the BP5e that stands for Bullet Proof 5 Eco and it is a 7mm slim solid state drive that will fit into pretty much any system for a performance boost over a mechanical hard disk drive. The new BP5e series comes in capacities from 240GB and up to 960GB, and the large size is one that becomes more and more popular due to decreasing prices. I’m however taking the 240GB drive for a spin today, a perfect entry-level drive.

Synology DiskStation DS416 4-bay High-Performance NAS Review
     Thu, Jan 21 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’ve taken a look at quite a few 2-bay NAS units lately and while they already allow for an impressive 16TB raw storage, that might not be enough for everyone. Today I’m taking Synology’s DiskStation DS416, a 4-bay feature-rich and high-performance NAS server, for a spin on my test bench. The Synology DiskStation DS416 is built around an Annapurna Labs Alpine AL-212 32-bit dual-core CPU with 1.4GHz, floating point unit, and hardware encryption engine. The CPU is backed by 1GB DDR3 memory that sadly isn’t upgradable.

Posted by: STAFF
I’ve had the pleasure to review several new drives with triple-level-cell (TLC) NAND recently and today it is time to take a closer look at ADATA’s Premier SP550 solid state drive. The drive is equipped with said TLC flash and an SMI controller to provide an affordable performance upgrade. The ADATA Premier SP550 is available in capacities from 120GB and all the way up to 960GB, I’m however taking a closer look at the 256GB model today.

Arq Cloud Backup for Mac and PC
     Thu, Jan 21 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Between us, I have been procrastinating. Unwilling to take the final step towards a truly comprehensive data protection plan. The first two stages (multiple copies, multiple formats) have been in place for years. Leveraging RAID1 (redundancy), multiple hard disk drives (backup), and DVD archival (format shift) but taking my important data off premises has been a sticking point because of trust, and simplicity. Frankly, I just do not have enough faith in any cloud storage provider’s security, they are all big juicy targets and the risk of a breach just seems more likely (cough, iCloud) than the type of event that would wipe away all of my home storage. Fortunately though, I recently found a solution that I am comfortable with – something that protects the data itself, and significantly reduces the risk of data leakage if there is a breach. Thank you Arq.

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.
