Corsair Force LX 256GB SSD Review
     Thu, Sep 18 2014 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair is using Silicon Motion's new SM2246EN SATA III 6Gbps controller along with 128Gbit Micron L85 20nm ONFI MLC NAND for the Corsair Force LX lineup. This combination gives the Corsair Force LX series a maximum sequential read speed of 560MB/s, which is as good as it gets for SSDs using the SATA III interface. When it comes to write speed the Corsair Force LX 128GB drive has a maximum sequential write speed of 150MB/s and the 256GB model is rated at up to 300MB/s. Read on to see how the Corsair Force LX 256GB drive does when we put it to the test!

iStarUSA S-915 Review
     Thu, Sep 18 2014 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you have read our guide to building your own NAS or our more recent Lian Li PC-Q28 Review, you may be ready to get your own personal NAS project started. The cases featured in both of those articles were great enclosures for a NAS Solution, but didn't really make accessing your drives easy. iStarUSA thinks they have the perfect case for the job, the S-915. This compact mini-ITX tower style chassis may not be an enthusiasts first choice in brand name or feature a sleek all aluminum exterior, but it does have a company with 20 years of experience in industrial computers behind it.

Plextor M6 PRO 256GB Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, Sep 16 2014 | 3:21P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Plextor has been a big name in storage for as long as I can remember. In the past they were the crowned kings of optical drives and these days we see one great performing Solid State Drive (SSD) after another. We’ve tested several of them lately and today the time has come to the brand new Plextor M6 PRO 256GB SSD. When you hold this drive in your hands, it becomes clear right away that this isn’t your everyday SSD. The golden package is the first giveaway, including the the entire inside of the packaging. Plextor has clearly given it some thought on how to present this drive the best and at the same time pack all the accessories into the tiny box.

Plextor M6 Pro SSD review
     Tue, Sep 16 2014 | 2:37P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We put the new Plextor M6 Pro SSD to the test in a review. Plextor recently released this new addition to their SSD lineup. The series is to compete with Samsung and Micron mostly. This SSD series is tagged PRO, and as such you may expect an extra thing or two in performance. Plextor also includes PlexTurbo, a rather fun second-generation RAM caching software. The end result is a very fast SSD that can keep up with the big players in the channel, yet still remains priced attractively.

Transcend SSD370 SSD Review (256GB) Great SSD Value Point
     Mon, Sep 15 2014 | 1:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, value and ease of installation seem to be key ingredients in finding success at the consumer level; great performance, high-capacity and reliability of which have all become commonplace. Transcend hopes to have found just the right mix in the SSD370 SSD, making it widely available in more capacities than we have seen from any other in some time, but also, selling it at a price point that has only ever been equaled by the likes of Samsung, SanDisk and Crucial/Micron themselves. Somehow, their pricing is at, or below that of even the NAND flash memory manufacturers. This might just be a great startbut what about ease of installation?"

Top SSD Picks for Fall 2014
     Sun, Sep 14 2014 | 1:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Summer has come and gone, and over the past few months, there have been quite a few SSDs released into the market, and the question of, Which SSD should I buy? seems to still come up a lot around forums. Usually, there are some predetermined recommended favorite in each. Today we feel we should provide our own answer to the question. Since the answer can cover such a large audience, from those who want a cheap value drive to those who want high-end enterprise grade drives, we will separate our answers for multiple categories."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
