Samsung 850 EVO 120GB and 500GB RAID and RAPID Review - VNAND Goes TLC
     Mon, Dec 08 2014 | 10:08A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 840 EVO was a great launch and sold very well, but Samsung did not rest on their laurels. By pushing flash technology even further, they introduced 3D VNAND into the mainstream with the 850 Pro, and today we`ve seen how that NAND handles both SLC and TLC speeds. In short, we are absolutely impressed. VNAND performs extremely well in SLC mode, and TLC speeds are slightly better (for a given capacity SSD) than competing 2D MLC flash! RAID performance of a small pair of 850 EVOs scaled as expected, and Samsung`s RAPID mode can help boost things when a single small SSD is in use. Overall the Samsung 850 EVO is sure to be a great launch, but we would like to see a more aggressive cost/GB on the smaller capacity models."

Samsung 850 EVO Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Dec 08 2014 | 10:06A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 850 EVO features 3D V-NAND technology, RAPID enhancements courtesy of SAMSUNG`s Magician software, itself an OS optimisation tool along with a 5 year warranty and a host of security encryption features so you can be assured this will be a quality product. It will certainly be interesting to see if it can topple their own 850 Pro."

News: Samsungs 850 EVO solid-state drive reviewed
     Mon, Dec 08 2014 | 10:04A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung`s long-awaited 850 EVO SSD employs three-dimensional NAND with three bits per cell. It augments that TLC storage with an SLC write cache, and it has a higher endurance rating and longer warranty than most MLC drives. We`ve taken a closer look to see how it holds up against the competition."

Samsung 850 EVO SSD Review (120/500GB) Showing Off 3D TLC V-NAND
     Mon, Dec 08 2014 | 10:04A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the end of June, Samsung released the 850 Pro which was the successor to the 840 Pro. With it came their brand new 32-layer MLC 3D V-NAND flash, and this flash allows for greater durability, lower power consumption, improved performance and a 10 year warranty. This morning we are reporting on Samsungs 850 EVO, the successor to the 840 EVO, and get ready for it as this SSD is going to rock your socks off. What could Samsung have done to make their EVO series even better this round? They have thrown in a new controller for the 120GB-500GB models as well as their newest 32-layer TLC 3D V-NAND. With its new controller and 3D V-NAND, it performs like an F1 race car, yet is as efficient as an electric car! Quick burst speed and efficiency is what this drive is about. Most client PC workloads are relatively quick and small, therefore, building a drive that is optimized for low queue depth performance is important for daily client usage. The Samsung 850 EVO delivers."

Samsung has teased 3D V-NAND for six months now. Can the company`s mainstream SSD line still deliver on cost, or is V-NAND too expensive for this market?"

G.Skill Phoenix Blade 480GB PCIe x8 SSD Review
     Fri, Dec 05 2014 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everybody loves speed, and there’s no easier way to enhance the snappiness of general usage tasks than by using a solid state drive. But the primary storage interface – SATA 6Gbps – saw its speed limit reached by fast SSD’s more than two years ago. If you wanted higher performance, multiple SATA drives in RAID or a dedicated PCIe solution were the ways to go. In its 480GB Phoenix Blade, G.Skill has opted to provide both; there’s a four-controller RAID 0 configuration for high speed numbers and a PCIe 2.0 x8 interface for ample bandwidth allocation.

QNAP TS-653 Pro SMB NAS Review
     Mon, Dec 01 2014 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TS-653 Pro NAS from QNAP is built on a solid Intel platform and while using the chassis from last year, the power consumption is noticeably less, while keeping a high level of performance. Thanks to the Intel Celeron J1900 Quad-Core, we also have transcoding capabilities up to 4K and we would also like to remind the QvPC technology which permits using the TS-653 Pro as a regular PC.
