Corsair Force GT 120GB Solid State Drive Review
     Fri, Jul 29 2011 | 4:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Even before the Corsair Force GT arrived at my door, I knew it would be hot. I get a lot of emails from readers and don't mind answering each and every one, but right after our review of the Force 3 went live I was flooded with emails asking about the Force GT. The only other product that I can think that generated so much interest to date was the Fusion-io ioDrive. The Force GT has some nice features that allow it to stand out from the rest of the Team SandForce products. The first is Corsair's known reliability and exceptional customer support. The drive itself is also red, much cooler than the run of the mill black SSDs floating around. Then there is the mystery over what components Corsair chose to use in their flagship SSD."

[Tech ARP] Q & A With Western Digital
     Fri, Jul 29 2011 | 11:27A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, we had the rare opportunity to sit down and chat with Mr. Albert Chang, Western Digital?s Product Marketing Manager at Le Meridien @ KL Sentral. He was very knowledgeable about Western Digital?s drives and very open (well, as open as he could be!). It turned out to be a truly enlightening and educational hour and a half of our time, and we certainly look forward to future chats with him! Let?s take a look at our discussion. For editorial purposes, we paraphrased our questions and his replies to them. Any mistakes below are our own and completely unintentional. We also held back a few of the questions we posted to him because we are awaiting more information. We will update this article once Mr. Chang gets back to us. In the meantime, enjoy the fruits of our little Q&A session!"

Hornettek Defender 2.5" Hard Drive Enclosure
     Tue, Jul 26 2011 | 2:39P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When it comes to USB enclosures you’ve got plenty of choices that’s for sure, but most are fairly basic. If you want something that’s rough and rugged you’ll most likely have to buy a specialized one that includes a hard drive inside and pay a premium price for it. Luckily our friends at Hornettek have a solution for that called the Defender that will thoroughly protect your hard drive from bumps and most everything else you can throw at it on a daily basis. "

Posted by: STAFF
"The Seagate GoFlex Satellite is more than just a shell on a 2.5" 500GB notebook hard drive supporting USB 3.0 connectivity with an external power brick. This drive has its own battery supply and integrated 802.11n wireless access point all in the same form factor as other external drives in the GoFlex line. I was amazed by how easily and quickly I was able to use this product right out of the box. It was a simple operation to move content on to the GoFlex and stream it back off to any wireless device..."

Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ Vertex 3 Solid State Drives promise high performance due to the SATA-III interface and the own OCZ development team. But even after all the extra effort the drives are just slightly more expensive than branded OEM models. So what is the advantage? HT4U.net presents the numbers."

240 GB SATA-600 Solid State Drive Round-Up
     Sun, Jul 24 2011 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Even though there is a plethora of mechanical hard drives on the market that support the SATA-600 interface, we really need a solid state drive to make use of the bandwidth available. Today we are going to compare five different models from Crucial, Intel, Mushkin, OCZ, and OWC to see how they perform.Recently, there has been a mass adoption of the SATA-600 interface by motherboard manufacturers thanks to native support in the latest chipsets from AMD and Intel. So if you're going to be building a new system anytime soon, it's likely that you'll be able to make use of the extra bandwidth of SATA-600 over the previous generation SATA-300 interface.Before continuing, we'd highly suggest that you read our Anatomy of SSD Units tutorial which provides all the background information you need to know about SSDs. The SSDs featured in this review use MLC memory chips.In the table below, we compare all the drives we're going to review. All five units use the standard 2.5" form factor and the SATA-600 interface. The Vertex 3 unit from OCZ is available in two slightly different models. We have the MAX IOPS version for testing today.The advertised capacities of the drives on test vary slightly even though all of the drives on test feature the same number of memory chips. All five drives feature 256 GB of physical memory, but some of the manufacturers set aside a certain portion of the available memory for over-provisioning. This helps to improve the performance of the drive in the long run. The capacities of the five drives are displayed in the table below."

Samsung 470 Series 256GB SSD Review

Posted by: STAFF
"The latest range of SSD's from Samsung is the 470 Series with models available in 64, 128 and 256GB. Today we have the largest model attached to our main test PC and will compare it to models from Intel and OCZ in a selection of synthetic and real world tests."

Force GT 120GB drive
     Sat, Jul 23 2011 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair has always been one of the biggest players in the computer memory market, consequently it was only natural for them to join the solid state disk segment of the market since SSD’s are essentially made of flash memory chips. Today, VR-Zone is having a look at the fastest SSD Corsair currently produces, the Force GT 120GB drive which boasts incredible speeds of up to 555MB/s sequential read and 515MB/s sequential write. We are going to examine the drive’s synthetic and real world performance in this review.

Crucial with Micron NAND

Posted by: STAFF
We have tested the Crucial m4 256GB and/or Micron RealSSD C400 256GB extensively. In all benchmarks we made a direct comparison on SATA3 port in IDE and AHCI mode and the test report will show a few surprises. Let us take a look, if the newest m4 or C400 SSD is at least equal or even much faster in comparison to the previous C300 SSD with same size and a few other SSDs and HDDs.
