HighPoint RocketRAID 2760 Switch Architecture PCI-E x16 24-Port SAS/SATA 6Gb/s C
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Storage data while being transmitted is anything but efficient and when it comes to flow, well, that is what HighPoint is trying to open up with their new RocketRAID Switching Architecture series of products. At Computex in Taipei I visited the HighPoint booth to learn about this new line of products, but to be honest it was so far out there that I really didn’t believe what I was seeing. Today we are going to take a look at the new HighPoint RocketRAID 2760, the first RAID storage controller that on one end is capable of pushing data to the motherboard at an amazing 8GB/s, while the other end is fed by 24 SATA / SAS connections. To spice things up we have teamed with Crucial, maker of the world’s fastest solid state drive, the RealSSD C300 256GB to put the 2760 through its paces and see just how much data we can pass through HPTs new Switching Architecture."

Team Group Xtreem S1 120GB SandForce Solid State Drive
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The SandForce SSD market has turned into a commodity market; everyone has a SandForce drive out now. The Team SandForce market has peaked and the only thing left for manufacturers to do is drop pricing. As it sits right now, pricing and value added inclusions like longer warranty terms and accessories are giving buyers reasons to pick one drive other another. If you are a company looking to actually make money on a product, introducing a SandForce SSD nine months late isn’t really the way to do it. All logic tossed aside, this is exactly what Team Group is trying to do, but the first drives have yet to hit etail shelves, so we are left with some uncertainties; the kind that make or break a product. As I sit here writing this, I don’t have pricing information or a list of etailers that will be carrying the new Team Group Xtreem S1. What I do know is that a Team Xtreem S1 has the potential to be very popular if Team can get the price under competitor’s current listings."

OCZ IBIS HSDL Solid State Drive Preview
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we've noted more than once here before, as NAND Flash technologies evolve, SATA will go the way of the dino. It's not going to happen overnight but like its old, spinning hard drive counterpart, the writing is on the wall. The market needs new higher speed interfaces with lower overhead and more direct attachment to native system interfaces. OCZ has been trying its hand at developing PCI Express-based SSDs in an effort to address this requirement. They've been rolling out all new products like their Revo Drive that we looked at recently and the new device we'll be looking at here today. The new OCZ IBIS SSD utilizes a proprietary serial interface that the company has coined "HSDL" for High Speed Data Link and it offers up to 20Gb/sec peak bandwidth over an industry standard SAS connector, which is over three times that of next gen 6Gbps SATA technology. Journey on for all the details and a performance profile of a prototype we've been testing here in the lab...

OCZ Technology Enyo 128GB Portable USB 3.0 SSD Review
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The OCZ Enyo 128GB USB 3.0 portable SSD is certainly unlike any portable USB 3.0 drive that we have ever used before. The drive is insanely fast, incredibly lightweight and has a great minimalistic appearance to it. If you have a PC that has USB 3.0 or are about to upgrade, you need a device like the OCZ Enyo to take advantage of the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 header on your PC. With the OCZ Enyo 128GB SSD you get fast, portable and robust USB 3.0 derived SSD that can easily fit in the front pocket of your jeans as it is no thicker than current mobile phones..."

     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today, we'll be looking at a the WD Scorpio Black WD5000BEKT 500GB 7200 RPM 2.5" SATA notebook hard drive. With a 7200 RPM drive speed, 16MB cache, and 3 GB/s SATA interface speed, the 500GB Western Digital Scorpio Black hard drive looks impressive on paper. When it comes to pricing, the WD Scorpio Black 500GB Hard Drive retails online for $74.99 shipped, which makes it $0.15 per Gigabyte. You can also get the drive on special at times as right now Newegg is doing $7 off with a promo code and that brings the drive down to just $67.99 shipped or $0.135 per Gigabyte. For comparison sake the Seagate Momentus XT 500GB notebook hard drive can be purchased online for just $129.99 shipped, which comes out being $0.26 per Gigabyte. .."

Icy Dock MB882SP-1S-1B 2.5" SATA SDD/HDD to 3.5" Converter Review
     Wed, Aug 25 2010 | 2:37A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Icy Dock MB882SP-1S-1B's function is simple, it converts any standard 2.5" HDD or SSD into a 3.5" drive. The MB882SP-1S-1B was also designed to fit the 3.5" form factor and emulate an actual 3.5" drive including rear connector and mounting hole alignment. This means that the MB882SP-1S-1B can be placed inside a another enclosure or a network attached storage or any hot swap bays that accept a standard 3.5"HDD. This unique flexibility in application separates it from other enclosures in the market."

Corsair Force F40 SSD with SandForceaontroller
     Wed, Aug 25 2010 | 2:37A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid State Drives with the known as fast Sandforce controller created a momentum in the industry, though they usually come with a heavy price tag. Corsair now pushes the price down, without giving up the controller advantage. The Corsair Force F40 has to show, if it can compete with more expensive drives.

Windows 7 Hard Drive and SSD Performance Analyzed
     Thu, Jul 02 2009 | 12:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Windows 7 is undoubtedly the most exciting new operating system to come out of Microsoft within the past decade--and with good reason. The user interface is superb, gone are many of the oddball Vista quirks, and the operating system is light and snappy, marking a massive 180 degree shift away from the heaviness and bloat of Vista. Despite the fact that it's based on many of the same core Vista elements, Windows 7 is a different beast, and should be looked at in a fresh new light. As with any new operating system release, there are a lot of questions with regards to how it will perform on various hardware configurations--one of the more interesting ones being related to disk performance. So, today we're going to look at how various types of disks perform under Windows 7, both of the traditional platter based variety and new solid state disks. We're not only curious about how disk performance changes between the operating systems, but want to see if Windows 7's new solid-state specific optimizations and tuning give users even greater performance compared to Vista...

Vantec NexStar Hard Drive Dock Review
     Tue, Apr 29 2008 | 9:49P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Vantec NexStar Hard Drive Dock lived up to its promise. It provides a convenient method of connecting any SATA drive to your system so that you can easily access the data on it. Performance was up to par, but the real benefit is from the design. During disaster recovery, you need something that's straightforward and easy to use and won't add more trouble to your life. The NexStar Hard Drive Dock succeeds in this aspect.”
