OCZ Vertex 3 Pro SandForce SF-2582 200GB SSD Preview
     Fri, Mar 18 2011 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In the end, we think the Vertex 3 line will live up to the expectations their predecessors set by being a high performance, quality drive and OCZ did well to retain the moniker. OCZ does manufacture their own PCB which is an extra peace of mind knowing they didn't source it to the lowest bidder as others may do. At speeds of 550MB/s & 500MB/s reads/writes, those that moved up to a Sandy Bridge platform should strongly consider holding out for these newer drives fueled by the SandForce SF-2000 series controllers...."

Intel 310 Series 80GB FULL SSD Review - A New Way
     Thu, Mar 17 2011 | 2:16P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our featured picture does a great job of portraying how truly small Intels new 310 Series 80GB SSD really is. It offers the punch of the X-25m in 1/8th of the size and Intel is gambling that this is going to add a whole new dimension to notebook configurations. First up to bat with the 310 will be new Lenovo Thinkpads destined for market in 2011 but don't think other oems aren't far behind. The 310 series SSD started shipping in units of 1000 to oems in December with prices at $99 (40GB) and $179 (80GB) per and don't be surprised to see a healthy premium on these new notebooks when combined with a hard drive. Its a combination that may be the best push forward in bringing the SSD into mainstream sales as now anyone can have the power of the SSD with the storage of a hard drive in a factory purchased laptop.

SSD Migration in The Enterprise Environment
     Thu, Mar 17 2011 | 2:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SSD technology has hit like a hurricane leaving enterprise in awe of its potential yet leery of high cost for a storage medium still in its infancy. Todays business is reluctant to implement SSD storage for reasons that run the gamut from reliability and durability to long-term performance gain concerns. The inherent cost of slc drives is self defeating for a small business and time has yet to put its stamp of approval on mlc design. In hopes of alleviating concerns of todays business through our success in SSD migration, I hope to address specific concerns, investigate today's enterprise SSD options and share my experience with SSD use in a real enterprise production environment.

SuperTalent About To Unveil Worlds Smallest And Fastest SSD
     Thu, Mar 17 2011 | 1:31P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SuperTalent is about to unveil the worlds fastest mPCIE card with SATA 3 speeds of 354MB/s read and 257 MB/s write respectively. Not really transparent at first, this is very exciting news in the laptop industry as this means we will be seeing SATA 3 laptops capable of blistering speeds sooner than imagined. The fact that this is also a mPCIe card also means that the laptop industry will be finally including SSDs as a boot drive with the hard drive included for increased capacity. SuperTalent is not stopping yet though!! They are also introducing a brother to this drive in the PCIe version for those desktop owners who like the idea of storage through PCIe open laneways. It has the same specs and we stole a shot of this as well.

The Intel 510 Series 250GB SSD Review
     Thu, Mar 17 2011 | 1:16P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel took the SSD realm by storm this week with the long awaited release of their first 510 series SATA 3 SSD. Although consumers were anxious for the news, reviewers had to remain tight lipped having received their pre-release sample a day or so prior and being sworn to silence until Intels release date of 29 Feb 11. We can say first hand that this was a very difficult task as Intel floored reviewers on their disassembly of the SSD itself. Situated front and center was a Marvell 9174 SATA 3 controller soldered to the SSD circuit board (PCB) rather than the Intel controller that everyone had expected. Intel certainly treated this as the ‘Colonels Recipe’ and, outside of Intel, their wasn’t a person who had the information prior to opening the drive. In fact, Intel even waited until the very last minute to get samples to reviewers which was a bit uncharacteristic as we learned with our review of the Intel 310 mSATA SSD a few weeks prior.

Posted by: STAFF
SSDs are now becoming far more common place in our gaming and work machines. The price tag might still be too high for many, but everyone can see the rediculous performance gains that can be made by moving to this flash based storage medium over traditional disks. Which group you fall in to though is neither here nor there, as whether you plan to buy it or not, today I'm reviewing a SSD from Kingston; their V100 +. Let's check it out. "

Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB & Momentus 750GB
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 1:49P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Barracuda Green 2TB is an attempt by Seagate to crack the low power consumption and excellent acoustics of low power desktop drives from WD and Samsung. The Momentus 750GB on the other hand doesn't have much to prove, coming from the same stock as the surprisingly quiet Momentus 7200.4 and XT.

Seagate 1TB Constellation.2 ST91000640NS Review
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 1TB Constellation.2 isn’t going to break any speed records with 115MB/s read and write but it brings to the table a unique set of features. Let’s start with the fact that by maintaining platter disks it makes these drives relatively affordable at just over $200 for a whopping 1TB enterprise quality space using SATA 6Gb/s interface. The 6Gb/s interface doesn’t boost the speed up too much but we do see small advantages over SATA 3Gb/s.

ioSafe SoloPRO USB 3.0 1TB Disaster Proof External Hard Drive
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the biggest reasons why you may choose to have an external hard drive is so that you can make backup copies of all your critical data. This gives you peace of mind in case the hard drive in your primary computer happens to crash. How, then, can you get peace of mind if your home or office happen to catch on fire?

Pushing The Limits of SSD Storage at 2.4GB/s
     Mon, Mar 14 2011 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months ago someone mentioned that setting up additional RAID configurations was not possible with an OCZ REVO drive installed. It brought forward an interesting idea that we finally have had a chance to play with as we like to retain SSDs in order to include them in future testing. This article displays the Gigabyte P67A-UD7 motherboard running 3 RAID 0 configurations, these being the OCZ Revo x2, OCZ Revo and LSI 9260-8i MegaRAID card running 8 x Micron C300 SSDs. In total, there are 18 SSDs and one hard drive active in the system, two of which are mPCIe cards and one even being a USB 3 SSD.

Posted by: STAFF
Hard drive makers have been slow to release new models with three-terabyte capacities. Hitachi was the first to reach 3TB with a 7 200-RPM desktop model and we`ve tested it against a full house of over 30 different drives to see how the 7K3000 compares."

OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 240 GB Review
     Sat, Mar 12 2011 | 11:50A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you look at the performance of the RevoDrive 3 X2, it is clear that it excels in random workloads with larger file sizes and multiple threads. In the ATTO testing, the RevoDrive 3 X2 easily reaches its advertised read performance target of 1500 MB/s and comes quite close to the 1225 MB/s specification on the writes. Keep in mind that this was done with the RevoDrive 3 X2 as the primary boot drive - not a bare drive."

Posted by: STAFF
"January 2011 marked the one year anniversary of USB 3.0 availability on mass-market consumer products. Adoption of the USB 3.0 standard started a little slow, but as of late 2010 began really ramping up. The Silverstone TS04 is Silverstone's first USB 3.0 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD compatible drive enclosure to hit the market. Today I have the TS04 here on my test bench, and am ready to put it to the test!"
