Corsair Voyager Air 2 Wireless Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Oct 14 2014 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mobile market has grown absolutely huge over the past several years, but sometimes we find that data sharing isn?t very convenient and storage space is limited on our devices. Thankfully manufacturers are designing devices to share your data across multiple devices, even providing you the capability to stream high definition video content across these devices ? all hopefully trouble free. Last year we took a look at Corsair?s first wireless hard drive, called Voyager Air, which was a very sleek and impressive unit that we really liked. Today, we?re going to take a look at the more recently revamped version, conveniently called Voyager Air 2. We?ll take a look and see what this drive all has to offer and if there is anything new brought to the table."

Kingston HyperX Fury 240GB SSD Review
     Sun, Oct 12 2014 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston HyperX Fury 240GB SSD- an SSD with the “HyperX” branding after a very long time. The last Kingston HyperX series SSD was HyperX 3K. Other than that, Kingston have been releasing few V series SSDs here and there. So, we should expect good ‘mainstream’ performance now that it comes with HyperX, or so we would like to think. Afterall, that’s the idea of having series within the branding to differentiate between the products. But many things changed. Those were the times practically every flash NAND centric brand that doesn’t make its own NAND or controller was slapping Sandforce SF-2281 controllers. In some cases, depending on certain solid-state drives, SATA III bandwidth is a bottleneck.

Micron M600 M.2 SATA SSD Review (256GB)
     Sun, Oct 12 2014 | 9:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Along with the rest of the M600 family, the M.2 SSDs use Microns newest 16nm NAND that allow the drives to hit a better cost-per-GB than their earlier products. As with previous drives they feature RAIN reliability technology, adaptive thermal monitoring, TRIM, S.M.A.R.T., and DevSleep. They also feature power-loss protection for data-at-rest to prevent corruption in case of a power failure. These M600 M.2 SSDs are also self-encrypting drives (SED) that have AES 256-bit hardware encryption from the built-in controller encryption engine and are TCG Opal 2.0 and IEEE1667 compliant to support the Windows eDrive standard."

ICY DOCK ICYCube MB561U3S-4S 4 Bay External HDD Enclosure Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Oct 11 2014 | 9:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Storage, it always seems like we need more of it, especially with file sizes increasing for media and more importantly games. While some of you may have cases that give you ample space to load them up with hard drives there are others who have small form factor system or even work from a laptop where storage space is limited. There is where external hard drive enclosures come into place. Today we are taking a look at a pretty awesome 4-bay external hard drive enclosure that supports 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA hard drives and has both USB 3.0 and eSATA connections. The enclosure I am talking about is ICY DOCKs ICYCube MB561U3S-4S. Lets load it up with drives and see what we can do with it."

Micron M600 mSATA SSD Review (256GB)
     Wed, Oct 08 2014 | 12:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
M.2 SSDs were developed to replace the mSATA form factor, however these devices are still in their infancy and the demand for mSATA SSD still exists. mSATA SSDs are mainly deployed in mobile devices such as tablets, laptops, and Ultrabooks because they allow for lighter and thinner designs. Their high performance, small foot print, and low power consumption make them the perfect fit for these devices over standard 2.5 HDDs. Over the next few years the production of client tablets and notebook PCs will be doubling by OEMs. Micron has taken notice of this and has just released their M600 line of SSDs as a solution. Offering a multiple varieties of compact, reliable, and high performance SSDs will allow companies, such as Micron, greater growth in the industry. Last week we went over both the 2.5 7mm and M.2 form factor M600 SSDs. Today, we will draw the saga to a close with our very last form factor for review, the mSATA model."

Kingston SM2280S3 M.2 SATA SSD Review (240GB)
     Tue, Oct 07 2014 | 8:34A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The introduction of the SM2280S3 M.2 SSD last June marked Kingston Technologys first entry to the M.2 SSD arena. For those new to M.2 SSDs, M.2 marks the standardization of smaller form factor SSDs to sizes smaller than what we have seen in mSATA. M.2 accommodates both SATA and PCIe performance, while at the same time offering capacities as high as 1TB. The SM2280S3 M.2 SSD is targeted at system builders and we initially saw its release of the 120GB version in June, followed by 240 and 480GB capacities in Q3, the 240GB capacity on our bench today. M.2 may be new to many but get ready as it will be creating a totally different picture en mass in the SSD arena before long. Better yet, do some digging into the webs top M.2 coverage to get you up to speed on the M.2 form factor!"

SanDisk Ultra II 240GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Sep 29 2014 | 4:40A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Samsung released their 840 Series drive back near the end of 2012, it was the first consumer drive to feature TLC (Triple Level Cell) NAND which took everyone by surprise as up until then, MLC drives ruled the consumer roost. The drive proved to be quite popular with decent performance and stellar power usage along with a very modest price tag. SanDisk has decided to drop some TLC NAND into their second iteration of the Ultra series drives which should provide some solid performance numbers along with budget level pricing. Read on to see how it performs."

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