ADATA DashDrive Air AE800 500GB Wireless HDD
     Sat, Mar 29 2014 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the first time that I had a wireless hard drive in for review, I had a mixed set of feelings with the concept and the functionality of the devices, though as of late, there have been a large number of improvements seen across the board with better performance, longer battery life and most of all a mobile application that works as it should do. With most of these teething troubles having been taken care of, I have a more welcome feeling on the technology and I can now see it in a better light as to how they can improve our mobile lives. To top this revised emotion, the pricing side of things has also settled down and as a result vendors are now able to introduce products with more features including the importance of having greater storage capacities. We now have a range of devices out there that can cater for a wide variety of needs and budgets. The AE800 is not the first wireless storage product to roll of the ADATA production line and in the early part of last year I took a look at the AE400 wireless card reader and power bank, which gave users the flexibility to insert an SD card of their own choosing to either share photos or provide a small amount of sharable storage for a number of mobile devices such as tablets and phones. The bottom line from that review was that ADATA’s first attempt at wireless storage impressed me, with a unit that was easy to use, compact and good-looking. Granted that the mobile app needed a little bit of polishing off around the edges, but it worked all the same and did what it needed to. Since then the app has seen a few changes and the end result is a more reliable and functional area through which you can wirelessly connect to a compatible drive. The AE800 that I’m taking a look at today pulls a number of features from the AE400 although the obvious difference here is with the storage medium. Where the AE400 was flexible in its storage capacity and connectivity, with the option for both USB drives and SD cards to be connected to the unit and then shared out, the AE800 only has the option to share out its own integral storage. Inside the black, sleek-looking chassis is a 500GB 5400rpm drive courtesy of Western Digital and to power it whilst on the go, a larger capacity 5200mAh battery is on hand. Like the AE400, the AE800 still has the option to charge a mobile device such as a smartphone with the capacity there to charge you phone from flat to full twice (depending on the battery capacity of your handset). Although the AE800 is designed for use whilst out and about, there is still a native USB3.0 port included as part of the specification, allowing the drive to be connected to a desktop or laptop system in a more traditional manner to copy media and other files to and from the drive ready for use on the go; whether it be for business use, or for sharing of video content to the kids tablets in the back of the card on a long journey.

Matsunichi 500GB USB 3.0 Portable HDD @ TechwareLabs.com
     Fri, Mar 28 2014 | 3:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Matsunichi is one of those Chinese electronics firms that is simultaneously everywhere and nowhere. Everywhere, in that you can find their stuff on Amazon, in Best Buy, and even Wal-Mart; nowhere in that hardly anybody outside the industry recognizes their name. They focus mainly on tablets, media streamers and portable hard drives, and it`s this last group we`ll be taking a look at today. Their 500GB USB 3.0 hard drive offering, model number DM256-BU-500GB, aims to give you half a terabyte for half a benjamin with minimal fuss. A cursory examination of the major online retailers confirms that they hit their price point, but what sort of performance do you get for your money? Let`s put this drive through its paces and find out."

Intel 730 Jackson Ridge 240GB SSD Review
     Tue, Mar 25 2014 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are looking at the latest Solid State Drive from Intel, the 730. This 2.5 inch drive uses a specially qualified 3rd generation Intel controller, the same 20nm NAND flash memory that was used in the S3500, alongside an optimised firmware. Intel have overclocked the controller by 50% and the NAND bus has been tweaked by a further 20%. How does it stack up in 2014?

OCZ Vertex 460 240 GB Review

Posted by: STAFF
After the Vertex 460 with 120 Gigabyte capacity we're now having a look at the Vertex 460 with 240 Gigabyte. Usually solid state drives with 240 Gigabyte capacity are quicker than 120 Gigabyte models. In this case we're curious to see what the differences between these to drives will be.

Plextor M5 Pro 256 Gigabyte Review
     Sun, Mar 23 2014 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the M5Pro, Plextor have an SSD in their portfolio, which is based on a very well performing and well-known controller from Marvell. Other than that Plextor have optimized the firmware towards maximum performance as well as high endurance. With this drive up their sleeve Plextor wants to steal some market share from their competitors and we're certainly curious how well a job the company did.

Intel SSD 730 Series SSD Review (2x480GB)
     Sat, Mar 22 2014 | 3:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday, we posted a report that seems to have drawn amazing attention, one that spoke to Intel`s final acknowledgement that their 3rd Generation controller was manufactured by none other than LSI. That really isn`t that big of a news scoop unless you are an SSD geek. It does tell us a great deal about the Intel 730 Series SSD we are helping Intel introduce to the world today; an SSD that also contains Intel`s 3rd Gen controller. The controller inside the SSD 730 we are reporting on today has been around for some time and has proven itself at the enterprise level."

Intel SSD 730 480GB Full Review - Overclocked Data Center SSD for the Enthusiast
     Fri, Mar 21 2014 | 3:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has a track record of overlapping parts among their consumer and enterprise lines. They did it with the X25-E / X25-M, with the SSD 710 / SSD 320, and now they`ve repeated that trend with the DC S3500 and SSD 730. The big difference this time around is that instead of the consumer unit carrying lower specs and warranty, the SSD 730 carries a 5-year warranty matching the enterprise part and actually beats its enterprise cousin"

OCZ Vertex 460 SSD Review
     Thu, Mar 20 2014 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ Storage Solutions, formerly OCZ Technology and now a Toshiba Group Company, was quick to produce its first performance product under the new company banner: Vertex 460 solid state drive. The new OCZ Vertex 460 SSD features an Indilinx Barefoot 3 (BF3-M10) controller and Toshiba 19nm Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash components with secure AES-256 data encryption and Trim support. Vertex 460 is good for 540 MB/s read and 525 MB/s write speeds over a SATA 6-Gb/s connection, and replaces the Vertex 450 as the fastest solid state drive in the product series. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the 240GB OCZ Vertex 460 SSD, model VTX460-25SAT3-240G, against the leading competition.

Intel 730 SSD Reviewed Breaking 1GB/s in RAID0
     Wed, Mar 19 2014 | 3:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Typically when most individuals think of Intel, their thoughts drift to that of Intels superiority in the CPU market, even though their product diversity is far more vast then some can imagine. Intels products range from CPUs to chipsets, integrated graphics processing units, server components, and solid-state drives. Today, Technology X has the opportunity to take an in-depth look at the new Intel SSD 730 Series (480GB), as both an individual drive and as part of a RAID 0 setup with another Intel 730 Series SSD."

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.
