Samsung SM951 M.2 PCIe SSD Review (512GB)
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 9:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In 2013 we were able to get a hold of Samsung's first go at an OEM M.2 PCIe 2.0 x4 SSD, the XP941. Once word got out about this SSD's speeds many storage enthusiasts thirsted for it. Samsung was not prepared for the consumer market to get so hyped up over it and they stopped distribution to 3rd party resellers as demand was exceeding supply. After a few long months it was finally available again and if you were big on fast storage, this small gum stick SSD was the one for you. Now, fast forward to 2015. A few weeks ago we took a look at a very fast consumer M.2 SSD, the Kingston HyperX Predator. It offers consumers great speeds as well as endurance, surpassing that of the XP941. Not only that, but it is easily bootable in almost any system. Now, it claims the title of the fastest consumer M.2 PCIe SSD out, however, it isn't the fastest M.2 option to the storage enthusiast.

Patriot Ignite M2 480 GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:39P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So a lot of people might not know it but the new M.2 SSDs are actually very versatile. You can run them as a direct PCIe drive with a x2 or x4 connection or you can even run a standard SATA drive on M.2. It wasn’t long ago that I took a look at the Patriot Ignite SSD, well it just so happens Patriot send over another Ignite SSD. This time they sent over their brand new Ignite M2. The Ignite M2 is a SATA based M.2 drive. In other words with this being a SATA drive we still work under the limitations of the SATA interface but with that we keep costs down. Where this comes in handy is in builds where not having to run a 2.5 inch drive is best. So we know this is up my alley, not having to pack in a 2.5 inch drive would save a lot of trouble in some of our LANrigs! So let’s see what the Ignite M2 is all about and then run it through our standard benchmark suite.

Liztek HDDT1BSB USB 3.0 Hard Drive Dock Review @ Technogog
     Mon, May 11 2015 | 12:26P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Up for review today I have another UBS 3.0 hard drive dock from Liztek called the HDDT1BSB which is a top loading dock which is very similar to many on the market today. I’ve tested it with the same drives as the one I just reviewed and I found the performance to be almost exactly the same. Using the USB 3.0 connection you can expect very similar results to an SATA interface, which means you’ll have decent transfer speeds which in turn means less time spent transferring data. Read on to learn more… "

Samsung SM951 PCIe SSD 512GB Review
     Mon, May 11 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If Samsung's claims are true then the lack of NVMe support shouldn't be too devastating for the SM951 as read speeds are said to reach 2150MB/s and 1500MB/s for writes, which should give the SM951 an advantage in write tests over the Intel SSD 750 1.2TB.

Kingston HyperX Predator 480GB PCI-Express Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, May 09 2015 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PCI-Express storage is nothing new, we have seen many different PCI-Express storage options over the past few years. The biggest advantage of using PCI-Express storage is that you overcome the typical 6.0Gb/s theoretical bandwidth limit of SATA-based solid state drives. If you have been following the storage industry you know that solid state drives have been bottlenecked by the SATA interface for years now. Well Kingston is presenting their first ever PCI-Express solid state drive. Part of their high-end HyperX brand the HyperX Predator boasts sequential read and write speeds of 1400 MB/s and 1000 MB/s respectively. That is some serious speed! While many PCI-Express storage devices we have reviewed in the past have featured a custom PCB with the drive on it Kingston has gone the M.2 route. So you can either buy the single M.2 device to use on an M.2 slot or you can buy it pre-installed in a PCI-Express adapter. We received the version with the adapter, let’s jump in!"

Samsung SM951 NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD Review
     Thu, May 07 2015 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung SM951 AHCI M.2 PCIe SSDs might be the most talked about enthusiast SSD at this moment, but what about the Samsung SM951 NVMe drives? If you thought the OEM-only Samsung SM951 AHCI drives was tough to purchase you will likely lose some hair trying to find someone that has the Samsung SM951 NVMe drives available to purchase today. Though the SM951 NVMe drive is not available through retail channel just yet, we managed to get our hands on one and have been using it on a number of systems over the past few weeks.

Kingston HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSD Review
     Tue, May 05 2015 | 12:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid State Drives continue to be one of the more sought after (and effective) upgrades for both desktop and mobile systems. But as drives have matured, and newer generations have been released, the bandwidth limitations of the legacy SATA interface have become increasingly more apparent. Even relatively affordable, mainstream solid state drives are bumping into the SATA bandwidth limit right alongside more expensive flagship drives, which makes it difficult to differentiate between them based on performance alone. The answer to eliminating the bandwidth limitations of the SATA interface is PCI Express. The latest high-end solid state drives connect to a system using the PCI Express interface, which can offer up much more bandwidth than SATA in the right configuration—GB/s versus MB/s. One of the first true PCI Express solid state drives to arrive is the Kingston HyperX Predator we’ll be showing you here today...

Eluktronics Eluktro Pro Performance SSD Review (250GB/500GB/1TB
     Tue, May 05 2015 | 12:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Eluktronics isn’t a name brand you think of when you start looking for a new SSD. Up until just recently we didn’t even hear about this company, let alone know they offered some very price competitive SSDs. Well, it turns out, this USA based company has been in business since 2011 as an authorized reseller of performance laptops with SSD and RAM upgrades ever since. In Q2 of 2014 they decided to step into the SSD market and produce their own SSDs. Most of their flash comes from Asia, but their products are built and assembled in the USA.

el 750 Series PCIe SSD 1.2 TB
     Tue, May 05 2015 | 12:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's new 750 Series SSD is a technology marvel. It is built on an 18-channel controller, using a PCI-Express x4 3.0 interface with the NVMe protocol. This provides transfer rates of well over 1 GB/s, which clearly impresses. With a price of $1 per GB the drive is also not prohibitively expensive.

Posted by: STAFF
Angelbird. Not the first name many would associate with SSD technology – however this Austrian company have earned a reputation in the high end sector dealing with design professionals, music producers and film makers. One of the interesting aspects with Angelbird is that their drives are designed and manufactured in Austria. Today we are looking at their new 512GB wrk drive – a high end model using the Silicon Motion 2246EN controller.

Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB SSD @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, May 03 2015 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to SSD shopping you have to consider your budget, speed requirements, and also your brand preference. For me personally, I have been using Kingston drives in basically all of my builds as well as all of our test benches for a few years now. This is partly because Kingston has always been great about supporting us but it is also because when I visit their offices and their US manufacturing I watched them jump through hoops testing and retesting their Memory. I realized that they take their quality very serious and for me more than anything else I can’t afford to have my SSD die. So while there have been other drives that are faster, I stuck with them. Why am I telling you this today? Well that is because today I will be taking a look at a MUCH needed new SSD in their product line called the Savage. The Savage line from HyperX isn’t new, they have a nice set of RAM under the name already but today they officially introduce the new SSD. So kick back for a few while I dig into the HyperX Savage SSD and see what it is all about.

Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe M.2 SSD Review
     Sun, May 03 2015 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Are you in a hurry? Solid state Drive Technology has been serving up data at the fastest rates available to consumers, quickly earning the distinction of ‘instant’ storage. SSDs built for the SATA interface already make most computers open applications in a snap, but the latest generation of PCI-Express 2.0 based SSDs bring that title closer to the truth. The new Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe M.2 SSD is one such example, and boasts 1400 MB/s read speeds with 1000 MB/s compressible data writes. Available in 240/480GB storage capacities, and available as a single M.2 drive or installed to a half-height half-length PCI-Express 2.0 adapter, in this article Benchmark Reviews tests the Kingston Predator against the fastest SSDs on the market.
