Transcend SSD220S 480GB SSD review
     Wed, Jul 06 2016 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently looked at a drive from Transcend’s flagship performance SSD range – the SSD370 series, which uses MLC NAND. This time around we are looking at a drive from the other end of the spectrum, the entry level SSD220S which uses TLC NAND. The SSD220S comes in just three capacities; 120GB, 240GB and the flagship 480GB drive and uses a combination of a Silicon Motion SM2256KAB controller and 16nm TLC NAND.

ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB991U3-1SB 2.5 Inch USB 3.0 Enclosure
     Wed, Jul 06 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB991U3-1SB is not quite your typical USB 3.0 enclosure, and I like it. I can see plenty of applications for a tougher, 'enterprise-grade' device that could benefit people at work and at home. At home, I think I would much rather use this enclosure in instances where I think my drive might get knocked around a bit... Like for use in the glove box of my car with the portable media streaming device we take on road trips.

Toshiba HK4R Enterprise SSD Review (1920GB)
     Tue, Jul 05 2016 | 1:36P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SATA SSDs are all the rage in data centers. Unlike their PCIe bothers, these SATA SSDs don’t often need to have high endurance figures and lightning fast IOPS performance. Instead, they typically just need to be cheap, reliable, and what is becoming more important lately, high capacity. With 1-3 DWPD ratings, they are the perfect medium for read intensive applications in web and file servers that do media streaming, video on demand, and warm data storage. Likewise, they need to have consistent performance and low operating power. This is where Toshiba’s latest enterprise grade SATA SSDs come in to play. The Toshiba HK4R is a high quality, power-efficient, and cost effective SATA SSD designed for these read intensive workloads. It boasts all the enterprise features you can ask for, such as end-to-end data protection and SED options, and it offers some decent performance numbers with its state of the art 15nm MLC NAND flash memory. But, just how well does it perform in this very competitive landscape? Read on as we dive into our review of the 1920GB Toshiba HK4R!

Drobo 5N review: Protection with BeyondRAID
     Tue, Jul 05 2016 | 1:33P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is pretty easy to get lost in the vast sea of storage devices. Personal storage really picked up about 10 years ago and ever since been growing at an alarming rate. I am not saying it’s a bad thing in fact, I think it’s great! Users are demanding more from storage appliances and the manufactures have really stepped up …

128GB PCIe SSD and a QHD panel
     Sun, Jul 03 2016 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer bills the Blade Stealth as "The Ultimate Ultrabook" citing superior mobility, display quality, and performance to its competition. Onboard the Razer Blade Stealth packs an Intel Core i7-6500U/Intel HD Graphics 520, 8GB of LPDDR3 1866MHz dual channel RAM, up to 512GB of PCIe solid state storage, 45Wh Lithium-ion polymer battery, and a choice of a 2560x1440p QHD or 3840x2160 4K touch display.

SanDisk SSD Plus 120GB SSD (SDSSDA-120G-G25) Review
     Fri, Jul 01 2016 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SanDisk SSD Plus uses a DRAM-less implementation unlike the newer entry-level SSDs, namely the SSDNow UV300 and the UV400. But it uses TLC flash chips and I am curious to know if a bit older SSD is any good compared to the newer entry-level SSDs. This would make a good comparison now since it will tell us where the newer and the older drives stand in terms of performance. Would it make a lot of difference for home users, notebook users and for gamers?

Kingston SSDNow UV400 480GB SSD Review
     Fri, Jul 01 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a silver casing and its trademark logo on the front, Kingston SSDNow UV400 seems to be an updated variant of the previous version, the SSDNow UV300. It assures the baseline performance (using ATTO) of up to 550MB/s read and 490MB/s write, backed with a three-year warranty support. The Kingston SSDNow UV300 that I reviewed earlier used a Phison controller. That unit’s availability was very limited with countries like India. The SSD did attract some interest because it was a cost-effective solution to get a larger SSD or an entry-level for general purposes. Kingston wasn’t the first to target the entry-level market.

Samsung's not the only one thinking in three dimensions these days. Micron is debuting its 3D NAND technology with an update to its MX series of SSDs. We put the MX300 750GB drive through the wringer to find out in 3D NAND and TLC balance each other out.

Crucial MX300 SSD Review (750GB)
     Mon, Jun 27 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For what seemed like an eternity Samsung has been the leader in manufacturing 3D NAND. Starting with the release of the Samsung 850 Pro two years ago, they have paved the way for innovation. 3D NAND brings greater capacity, power efficiency, and lower cost to the consumers. After first announcing their 32-Layer 3D NAND last year in March, we have been patiently awaiting Micron and Intel to finally step into the game to combat Samsung in this regard. Luckily for us, we don't need to wait any longer. Today, Crucial releases the Limited Edition MX300, a 750GB, 2.5" 7mm form factor SSD powered by Micron's latest 3D TLC NAND! We can finally get hand's on experience with the collaborative result of Micron's and Intel's labor to see how it compares to the competition. Read on to learn more as we put the Limited Edition Crucial MX300 to the test.

Samsung 750 EVO 500GB SSD review
     Mon, Jun 27 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung has released the 500 GB version of the 750 EVO SSD. The 750 series should be a notch more price-competitive yet offers enthusiast class SATA3 performance. Armed with truckloads of performance and that attractive pricing, Samsung will once again set the tone!

The Portable SSD T1 by Samsung was the fastest USB drive of its kind at launch. The brand new Portable SSD T3 is not only faster and more durable but it's also compatible with Android devices and has a far more attractive price tag attached onto it.

Silicon Power S55 TLC 120GB and 240GB SSD Review
     Sat, Jun 25 2016 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The S55 TLC series of SSDs from Silicon Power are offering quite a bit of storage space at acceptable performance levels unless the buffer gets filled; if we are used to transferring frequently large batches of files to the drive, the speed will decrease to a minimum of about 95MB/s (regular HDD performance levels), but we will still benefit from very good access times."

Crucial MX300 SSD Tested
     Thu, Jun 23 2016 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Marketed under Micron's consumer brand Crucial, the MX300 is their first entrant into the consumer space, as well as the first consumer SSD sporting IMFT 3D NAND. Crucial is known for their budget-minded SSDs, and for the MX300 they chose to go with the best cost/GB they could manage with what they had to work with. That meant putting this new 3D NAND into TLC mode. Now there are many TLC haters out there, but remember this is 3D NAND. Samsung's 850 EVO can exceed 500 MB/sec writes to TLC at its 500GB capacity point, and this MX300 is a product that is launching with *only* a 750GB capacity, so its TLC speed should be at least reasonable.

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.
