Intel SSD 750 NVMe PCIe SSD Review
     Fri, May 01 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel recently launched the SSD 750 series, which is first set of SSDs that support NVM Express (NVMe) or Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface Specification (NVMHCI) technology. NVMe is set to replace the AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) technology that came out in 2004 when the PC market was still dominated by hard drives. AHCI has served us all well over the past decade, but the NVMe specification was build specifically for Solid-State Drives (SSDs) that are attached through the PCI Express (PCIe) bus. The enterprise space has enjoyed NVMe technology for over a year, but sadly no consumer oriented PCIe SSDs with support for NVMe has made it to the market. Intel changed all that this month by releasing the Intel Solid-State Drive (SSD) 750 Series, its highest performing SSD for use in client PC storage devices and workstations.

Kingston HyperX Savage SSD Review (240GB)
     Thu, Apr 30 2015 | 6:25P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HyperX Savage fills the mid-range performance spot in their SSD line up. For those looking for a step up from their HyperX Fury, but who don’t want to go as far as to buy their HyperX Predator, the HyperX Savage is the SSD to look at. It is powered by a Phison S10 quad-core, eight channel controller and filled with Toshiba’s A19 NAND. These components make for a great combination and place this SSD as Kingston’s fastest SATA-based SSD with sequential speeds up to 560MB/s read and 530MB/s write!

Kingston HyperX Savage SSD Review
     Thu, Apr 30 2015 | 6:24P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HyperX, a division of Kingston, had been making headlines. It began with their Predator PCIe M.2 SSD, which fetched data at more than 1400 MB/s. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the HyperX Savage SSD, designed for performance enthusiasts and replaces the HyperX 3K solid state drive. HyperX Savage utilizes a quad-core eight-channel Phison PS3110-S10 storage controller capable of 560 MB/s read and 530 MB/s write speeds. The 240GB HyperX Savage SSD Upgrade Bundle Kit received for testing (SHSS3B7A/240G) will be tested against the fastest solid state drives available for the SATA interface.

Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB SSD Review, Raw Savage Speed
     Thu, Apr 30 2015 | 6:24P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HyperX Savage 240GB SSD is powered by a quad-core, 8-channel Phison S10 controller providing speeds up to 560MB/s Read and 530MB/s Write. The IOPs on this Savage Monster are 100K/89K read / write and it represents Kingstons fastest Sata drive to date. Sata 6G tops out at 600MB/s per controller but sustained drive operations run more in the 560MB/s range so for Sata 6G the HyperX Savage saturates practical bandwidth. The HyperX Savage challenges the bandwidth Sata 6G offers and shows that drive technology has outstripped the Sata 6G interface. Leave it to Kingston to taunt the Sata 6G interface and challenge the Sata 6G interfaces speed.

Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB SSD Upgrade Bundle Review
     Thu, Apr 30 2015 | 6:23P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Kingston HyperX Savage SSD will replace the HyperX 3K. The Savage SSD is powered by the Phison PS3110-S10 quad core, eight channel controller. It is manufactured to fill the mid-range line between the high end Predator and the entry level Fury. The HyperX Savage comes in capacities of 120, 240, 480 and 960 GB capacities and all offer up to 560/530 MB/s R/W and up to 100,000/89.000 IOPS R/W. All capacities of the HyperX Savage come in two versions, single SSD or Upgrade Bundle."

RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-RD3680SU3 External RAID Enclosure Review
     Thu, Apr 30 2015 | 10:16A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you happen to be a designer, 3D animator, video editor or even just an enthusiast then in all likelihood not only do you need lots of space in the form of Terabytes to store all your data but you may also need a more portable solution which will allow you to move all that data around without much effort. That pretty much means you can`t really use the drive trays of your tower to do that so you will need to either get a docking station or try and find an external enclosure capable of holding all your drives. Now the docking station may not be the most ideal solution since drives are both exposed and not really stable during transport (although you can always pack the drives separately) but its most serious drawback is that there aren`t really many in the market with more than 2 drive spots. On the other hand there aren`t really that many external HDD enclosures that have more than 4 drive bays and that also may be a problem for many people (although a step up compared to docking stations). Luckily a few manufacturers recognize that issue and have begun to release external HDD enclosure with more than just 4 drive bays and the latest ICY BOX IB-RD3680SU3 External RAID Enclosure by RaidSonic has room for 8."

Seagate Enterprise NAS HDD 6TB SATA III HDD Review
     Mon, Apr 27 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's no secret that there are several storage choices out there for use with a desktop PC (or even a laptop) from the all-time classic regular mechanical drives up to the new solid state hybrid drives (HDD+SSD combo) and solid state drives. Things however become quite more complicated when looking for a NAS (Network Attached Storage) oriented model since there are many things one has to pay attention at aside performance and reliability such as power consumption, temperatures and even noise levels. Of course that's also why all the players in the market have launched their very own "solutions" for NAS users but much like everything else in the PC industry not all are created equal. With us today we have what is perhaps the most promising mechanical hard drive in the market today developed primarily for use with NAS servers, the Enterprise NAS HDD 6TB by Seagate.

Crucial BX100 500Gb SSD Review

HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 Hitting 2.8GBs @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Apr 25 2015 | 10:16A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month we looked at the performance of the HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe G2 x4 Solid-State Drive and found that was one of the fastest M.2 SSDs that you can purchase right now. To be honest the only two M.2 PCIe SSDs that enthusiasts should be looking at right now would be the Kingston HyperX Predator and the Samsung SM951. The Samsung SM951 is very tough to purchase since it is an OEM storage drive, so that leaves the HyperX Predator as being the fastest consumer M.2 PCIe SSD that is readily available on the market right now. The HyperX Predator PCIe SSD is available in 240 and 480GB capacities and is factory rated as having up to 1400MB/s sequential read and 1000 MB/s sequential write speeds. We were very happy with the performance we got from this drive, but we were curious what performance would look like if we put two HyperX Predator 480GB PCIe SSDs together to create a logical RAID0 array.  Read on to find out how fast we can get them!"

Crucial BX100 500GB SSD Review
     Thu, Apr 23 2015 | 4:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial is a subsidiary of Micron Technology and presents one successful SSD after another since the first SSD. According to our reviews of the current MX200 with 500 GB and 1 TB capacity, we are testing now the less expensive BX100 SSD with 500 GB capacity. In this review, the Crucial CT500BX100SSD1 will compete against the predecessors C300, m4, M500, M550 and MX100 and some more current SSDs. The price is excellent, but what is about the SSD durability and performance ?

8 Facts You Never Knew About Western Digital
     Tue, Apr 21 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote : Western Digital My Passport portable hard disk drives are popular because they are not only fast, they also come with hardware encryption which allows for instantaneous encryption of all data. This is very useful because the encryption capability is built right into the drive and is very easy to use. In addition, the encryption process is performed by the hard disk drive controller, so it has no effect on the system's performance.

Crucial`s MX200 250GB has a unique trick up its sleeve called Drive Write Acceleration. DWA is supposed to allow this more affordable drive to run with its 500GB and 1TB siblings. "

Samsung SM951 512GB M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0
     Sun, Apr 19 2015 | 3:59P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If our review yesterday on the Samsung SM951 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD was interesting, but you found yourself thinking that the first M.2 PCI Express 3.0 x4 storage drive just isn’t fast enough for you we have a real treat for you today. We managed to get our hands on another Samsung SM951 512GB Drive (part number MZ-HPV512) and slapped it on our Intel X99 desktop test system to make a dynamic RAID 0 array! A single Samsung SM951 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD is capable of 2150MB/s sequential read and 15000 MB/s sequential write speeds, so this setup could possibly get us up to 4300 MB/s sequential read and 3000 MB/s sequential write if all works as planned since we’d be running the SSDs in tandem. Read on to see just how fast we could get two of these M.2 PCIe 3.0x4 SSDs!
