At CES 2015 Micron launched this...
     Wed, Feb 18 2015 | 11:43A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Micron's Crucial brand has been cranking out some great low cost SSDs for the past several years now. While their early drives pushed into the SATA 6Gb/sec interface before most of the competition, their performance was inconsistent and lagged behind some of the other more nimble solutions available at that time. This pattern was broken around the time of the M550 and MX100 launches. Those two drives were heavily competitive in performance and even moreso in pricing. Actually the pricing is probably the bigger story - when they launched, one of our readers caught a 512GB MX100 on sale for $125 ($0.24/GB)! We are coming up on a year since the MX100, and at CES 2015 Micron launched a pair of SSD models - the BX100 and MX200. Today we are going to look at the BX100 series.

Samsung T1 Portable SSD Review
     Mon, Feb 16 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Flash-based thumb drives have come a long way, but while a 16GB stick can be purchased with spare change, those who need to move large volumes of data on without spending an arm and a leg have traditionally had to rely on comparatively sluggish USB 3.0 hard drives. Thanks to Samsung, we may finally have an external SSD that delivers blisteringly fast transfers at an affordable price in the form of its new T1 Portable SSD.

Plextor M6e Black Edition PCI Express SSD Review
     Sun, Feb 15 2015 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year, Plextor introduced its M6e family of solid state drives. The drives are / were offered in M.2 and PCI Express flavors, though technically the PCIe-based models were the same M.2 drives parked in a PCIe-to-M.2 adapter card. Regardless of the technicalities involved, the Plextor M6e’s specifications and performance were relatively strong, with peak read speeds topping the 770MB/s mark

Plextor M6e Black Edition PCIe 256GB SSD Review
     Sun, Feb 15 2015 | 3:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is always a pleasure to get an SSD in for review, and even more when it is a high-performance PCI-Express based M.2 SSD. We’ve previously had a look at the Plextor M6e and today it’s time to take a closer look at the brand new Plextor M6e Black Edition PCI Express SSD with 256GB capacity. This drive doesn’t just promise to be a high-performing SSD, but it is also a beauty to look at.

840 EVO Performance Restoration Tool
     Wed, Feb 11 2015 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once the community reached sufficient critical mass to get Samsung’s attention, they issued a few statements and ultimately pushed out a combination firmware and tool to fix EVO’s that were seeing this issue. The 840 EVO Performance Restoration Tool was released just under two months after the original thread on the Overclock.net forums was started. Despite a quick update a few weeks later, that was not a bad turnaround considering Intel took three months to correct a firmware issue of one of their own early SSDs. While the Intel patch restored full performance to their X25-M, the Samsung update does not appear to be faring so well now that users have logged a few additional months after applying their fix.

     Wed, Feb 11 2015 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the recent review of the Crucial M550 M.2 and the Crucial M550 2.5-inch SSD we test the third possible type of the Crucial M550 SSD today - the Crucial M550 mSATA SSD with 512 GB and the part number CT512M550SSD3. This new review will show if the tiny mSATA SSD can keep up with the excellent test results of the SATA SSD and the M.2 SSD.

“Emtec, a new entrant into the low cost solid state drive business, seeks to offer a compelling product at value prices. That has been hard to do in the past but does not mean impossible now. We have the chance to review the new Emtec International Power Plus X150 240GB solid state drive. It is a lower cost alternative built with the same premium parts as the competition.”

ADATA Premier Pro SP900 M.2 6Gbps SSD Review (256GB)
     Sun, Feb 08 2015 | 12:46P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we are awaiting next gen SSDs featuring SF-3700 controllers, we are still seeing some SF-2200 based SSDs released in the market. A few years ago, SandForce SSDs saturated the marketplace as they were the go to for most companies, however as of late, this has changed. A lot more options are out there for companies to choose from. Companies such as Marvell, Silicon Motion, and Phison all make very competitive controller and SSD design options. As a matter of fact, most of our recent reviews are of SSDs with controllers from each of these manufacturers. The last SandForce based SSD we reviewed was some time last year. Having said that, while the SF-2281 controller is going on four years old, it still competes well with these more modern controllers."

Samsung Portable SSD T1 250GB Review
     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 7:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sexy and luxurious are two adjectives you don't often see when one is talking about portable storage drives. Samsung is no stranger to beautiful designs and the South Korean electronics giant has an actual global design team that is tasked with the job of bringing good looking products to market. Someone at Samsung wanted to come out with a tiny yet stylish, external portable SSD that uses the USB 3.0 interface to become the fastest drive on the market. The result of this was the Samsung Portable SSD T1, which is hands down the exciting USB 3.0 external storage drive that we have seen since the adaptation of SuperSpeed USB 3.0. Read on to see how it performs on our test system!

Samsung Portable SSD T1 Review (1TB)
     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 7:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So I am holding this Samsung Portable T1 1TB SSD in my hand and thinking how far we have come to make possible the actual storage of a quarter million songs, 200,000 pictures, 1 million e-books or 500 hours of video on a device 3/4 the size of a business card and 30 grams in weight. To put that weight into perspective, 30 grams is equal to two tablespoons of flour. Capacity and weight aside, that wasn’t enough for Samsung and they included performance, value and probably the most consumer friendly security we have ever seen, thus ensuring once again that their SSD is going to make a mark on the industry.

The 256GB version of the Plextor M6e Black Edition SSD is more economical than the larger capacity model, but does this PCIe drive bring the wow factor?"

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
