Crucial MX200 250GB SSD Review
     Sat, Aug 15 2015 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even up to 3-4 years ago none of us here expected to see a time (at least not as fast) when manufacturers would be able to release solid state drives (SSDs) with really good performance levels that would cost as low as USD0.35 per Gigabyte. Of course back then we also didn't expect to see SSD models (at least not for many years to come) that would be able to max-out the SATA III (6Gb/s) standard so i have to say that things turned out much better than we'd hoped (still i think they could had been even better). Further price reductions however as we speak seem to be the primary goal most manufacturers have so more and more models land around the price/capacity mark mentioned earlier in an effort to attract even casual users to the world of SSDs. Crucial just recently released their BX100 and MX200 lines and since we last tested the entry-level BX100 250GB model today we'll be testing their high-end MX200 250GB model.

WD My Cloud EX4100 4-Bay Expert Series 16TB NAS Review
     Fri, Aug 14 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We ain’t all equally skilled when it comes to the configuration of network and storage devices nor is it everyone that has the same interest in that. Sometimes you just want to purchase something, enter your preferred name and password, and then be ready to rock. WD’s My Cloud series is designed for just these scenarios and it comes equipped with drives and is pre-configured. All you need to do yourself is connect it, turn the power on, and set your password. Today I’m taking a closer look at the WD My Cloud EX4100 from the Expert series and will give it a good spin in the test area.

ADATA XPG SX930 SSD Review (120GB/240GB/480GB)
     Thu, Aug 13 2015 | 1:37P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA has memory products for all sections of the market, from consumer to industrial. As of late they have released a new consumer SSD, the XPG SX930. It is marketed towards the gamer and overclocker crowd at a pretty competitive price point. With a revamped package and aesthetic design the SX930 should stand out much better than with their typical styling. The XPG SX930 features a new controller by JMicron and what they state is enterprise-grade MLC+ NAND. So, today’s review is going to be quite interesting as we get to see what this new combination has in store.

Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB SATA SSD Review
     Thu, Aug 13 2015 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Do you remember Kingston's first HyperX SSD? It the one sporting an anodized blue aluminum and composite housing. A formidable high performance SSD that utilized a SandForce controller, that created a love-hate relationship among many enthusiasts. While one side blamed the motherboard chipset for some performance quirks, the other side pointed fingers at the controller. Thank goodness those days are gone!"

Synology DiskStation DS715 2-Bay Value NAS Review
     Sat, Aug 08 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been a while since I had the pleasure to review a Synology NAS which makes it even more of a pleasure to take the brand new Synology DiskStation DS715 2-bay NAS for a spin. And while it does look ordinary on the first glance, I can tell you it isn’t. The DS715 is an expandable NAS server, equipped with a powerful quad-core processor with hardware encryption engine and the ability to expand up to 7 drives thanks to the optional expansion unit. You can’t just expand it with extra bays, you can also connect it with Synology’s High Availability (SHA) technology that combines active and passive servers into one cluster.

Intel 750 PCIe SSD Review (400GB)
     Fri, Aug 07 2015 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel 750 is the first NVMe SSD released into the consumer market. It offers users some pretty killer performance at a price point that is roughly twice that of top performing SATA SSDs. Back in April we were able to review the 1.2TB model. After seeing the results we were quite impressed, however, at over $1,000 the 1.2TB model does not completely fit the bill for most, unless you are an enthusiast or workstation user. This was quite evident when we kept hearing people ask about the 400GB model more often than the 1.2TB model, especially when compared to the SM951. For most gamers and storage nuts the 400GB model is far more within reach because of its lower price point and because of this we took it upon ourselves to attain the 400GB Intel 750 Series SSD for review. Now that it is in our hands, how does it compare?

Seagate NAS HDD 4TB ST 400VN000 Review
     Thu, Aug 06 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is no secret that I am a storage junkie. Everyone that visits this site should have figured that out by now. With as much data as I store on my network(s), I am always on the hunt for a better hard drive to (over)populate my NAS and servers. Desktop drives are affordable but not ideal for NAS/Server storage while Enterprise drives are way to costly for the average person. Seagate thinks they have created the perfect drive for your NAS (and mine) and it goes by the name NAS HDD, It stores an impressive 4TB, and it is very inexpensive. Can it do enough to displace my current drive of choice?

Intel SSD 750 PCIe 1.2TB NVMe Solid State Drive Review
     Wed, Aug 05 2015 | 5:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once in a while we see a new generation of products being released that completely change how we view the area and make what we used to think was good into something rather mediocre. Such a time is upon us right now thanks to Intel and their brand new consumer drives, the Intel SSD 750 Series. I’ll be taking a closer look at the 1.2TB PCIe Half-Height Half-Length (HH-HL) add-in card today, but the drive is also available as a smaller version with 400GB capacity and both capacities are also available as 2.5? inch form factor with an SFF8639 connector.

OCZ Vector 180 480GB SSD Review
     Wed, Aug 05 2015 | 5:08P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While most of the recent focus has been on new M.2 form factor drives, OCZ is still serving the 2.5” Enthusiast Class with the new Vector 180 SSD in 120, 240, 480 and 960GB varieties. While the shift from the Vector to the Vector 150 was almost purely a change in NAND, the Vector 180 moves to Toshiba’s new A19nm NAND and also tweaks and adds features to the Barefoot 3 controller."

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.
