Patriot Hellfire PCIe M.2 Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, May 09 2017 | 4:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past year we've seen a new generation of solid state drives enter the market taking speeds and form factor to the next level. These are of course the PCI-Express M.2 NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) drives. These drives offer 3-4x the speeds of SATA-based solid state drives and are extremely small, plugging right into an M.2 slot in your motherboard. Patriot has presented us with their first ever PCI-Express M.2 solid state drive, the Hellfire. It is based off of Phison's E7 NVMe controller and comes in 240GB and 480GB versions. Today we have the 480GB version which offers sequential read and write speeds of 3000 MB/s and 2400 MB/s respectively. Let's see what this drive can do!"

Toshiba N300 6TB NAS HDD Review
     Tue, May 09 2017 | 12:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Toshiba released their new N300 series of hard disk drives designed for use with NAS devices a little while ago, and I’m pleased to have the 6TB capacity version in my lab for a closer look and some benchmarking today. Toshiba is one of the largest growing storage companies at the moment and we already had a look at their X300 desktop series a little while ago. Today we’re moving towards headless units with the N300 series designed for NAS usage. Toshiba worked closely with NAS manufacturers in order to deliver a product that is optimised for NAS usage, and the N300 is just that. It is certified for 24/7/365 usage in multi-RAID systems with up to 8 hard disk drives. Whether it is for streaming, backup, or archiving, the N300 delivers.

Micron 5100 ECO and MAX SSD Review: High-Capacity
     Thu, May 04 2017 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we have two Micron 5100 series drives gracing our testbench, a 960GB 5100 MAX and a spacious 1920GB 5100 ECO. These can both be considered the economical cousins of Micron’s 9100 MAX NVMe speed demon we reviewed last year. The 9100 MAX costs north of $1.00 per GB, however, while the 5100 ECO and MAX register at around $0.45 and $0.59 per GB, respectively. Unlike the 9100 Series, which is built on MLC NAND flash, the 5100 Series utilizes cheaper 3D TLC NAND controlled by a 4-channel Marvell controller. TLC NAND is not typical in enterprise grade drives due to its tendency to wear out more quickly than MLC or SLC NAND. On the other hand, TLC NAND does facilitate higher capacities. So, what has Micron done to make their TLC drives enterprise ready? The answer is abundant over-provisioning...

BeyondRAID
     Tue, Apr 25 2017 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Drobo's 5N2 combines their long-standing tradition of dead simple setup and configuration with increased speed through a pair of bonded Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. Bonding takes the 5N2 from a device that can perform solidly on two separate networks to one that can offer almost twice the performance on a single subnet. While Drobo increased the processing capability to support the additional network throughput, we were beginning to encroach upon the seek performance of NAS-grade HDDs when attempting to serve two simultaneous Gigabit streams. DroboApps has grown to cover the majority of things you would possibly want to run on a home NAS, and DroboDR offers off-site backup (to another Drobo). Overall, the combination of Drobo's BeyondRAID, bonded Gigabit Ethernet, 5 drive bays, and a competitive price point, make for a compelling NAS package worthy of serious consideration for any home or small business network storage needs."

SanDisk Extreme Pro 240GB SSD Review
     Sat, Apr 22 2017 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The product name 'Kingston HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard' is wider than the keyboard itself. As you can summarize from its name, it is aimed towards First Person Shooting? You would speculate that Kingston would eventually have MMORPG/MOBA keyboard with on-the-fly macro keys. Kingston isn't very shy to diversify, similar to Corsair. Once known for flash and memory products, Kingston has a good reputation for selling headphones and headsets of different make, features and pricing.

Crucial MX300 525 GB M.2 SSD Review with Thermal Video
     Fri, Apr 21 2017 | 12:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After our test of Crucial MX300 2 TB SSD we take a look at the 2280 M.2 SSD from the MX300 series. We test the Crucial MX300 525GB M.2 SSD and compare the benchmarks with SSDs from Intel, Samsung and other SSDs. Another subject is particularly interesting at M.2 SSDs and that is the temperature of M.2 SSDs. For this reason we have taken pictures with a thermal imaging camera and even published a M.2 thermal video in our OCinside YouTube Channel, where the M.2 temperature is shown during a benchmark in 4x speed!
