Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD Review
     Sat, Jan 02 2016 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the arrival of the XP941 last year, and later on the SM951 NVMe, we have been waiting for a more affordable mainstream version. Recently Samsung delivered just that with its new SSD 950 Pro Series. Made exclusively in the M.2 2280 form factor, the new 950 series comes in either 256GB or 512GB capacities -- priced at $190 ($0.74/GB) and $350 ($0.68/GB), respectively.

Posted by: STAFF
OCZ and Crucial aren't resting on the laurels of their entry-level Arc 100 and BX100 drives. Instead, they've cooked up even more attainable SSDs built with TLC flash—OCZ with its Trion 100, and Crucial with its BX200. We put these drives through their paces to see what they can do.

QNAP TS-251+ Network Attached Storage Review
     Sat, Jan 02 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Much like in a business environment but on a smaller scale, we as home users, have an insatiable appetite for data. Our internet connection bandwidth has increased to the point where some can get speeds of 1 gigabit per second. Application sizes have increased. Some game installs reach 50 GB in size. Digital cameras allow us to snap hundreds of … Read more.

DeLOCK M.2 on PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter card
     Thu, Dec 31 2015 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HardwareOverclock.com has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the DeLOCK M.2 on PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter card. This adapter was made for all users, which wanna use M.2 SSD faster than 10 GB/s on older boards like Z77, Z87 or other chipsets. This adapter cost only 20,- Euro, but does it works? We’ve try it with an Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD.

TR's SSD Endurance Experiment
     Wed, Dec 30 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
TR's SSD Endurance Experiment showed just how many bytes of writes today's SSDs can handle before expiring. We concluded our experiment with a take on Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive, and now Samsung has turned our version of that song into a real, live, epic performance.

Synology DiskStation DS1515+ NAS Unit
     Tue, Dec 29 2015 | 11:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Does it fully live up to my expectations from Just Cause 2? Not quite and that is mainly for three reasons. The first is the quirk with the missiles needing to be spam-clicked. While I do not hold that quirk against the game on its own, it is enough of a wrinkle to miss the totality of my hope. The second is how some things are locked behind the mods, especially some of the tether enhancements. By the time I had unlocked the mods that gave additional tethers, and importantly stronger tethers, I had already found my groove and felt no desire to change it during fights. Of course now I can go back and replay select military bases and experiment as I wish, without hurting my progression, but having some of that sooner would have been nice. Finally, the planted explosives you have an unlimited supply of take long enough to place that I found their use to be limited, at least during open combat.”

Zotac Premium Edition 240GB SSD Review
     Mon, Dec 28 2015 | 9:53P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The solid-state drive business has many competitors. It will be interesting to see what Zotac Premium Edition 240GB SSD stands. Zotac might be a new name in SSDs, but isn’t in the DIY PC market. Zotac enjoys a long-standing reputation with good graphic card series and its well known ZBox mini-PC lineups even from the time when mini-ITX wasn’t really around.

HyperX Predator PCIe M.2 SSD Bootable RAID 0 Performance
     Mon, Dec 28 2015 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When the Intel Z170 chipset was released, one of the features we were looking forward to was the option to enable a bootable RAID utilizing M.2 drives. Kingston provided us a couple of their HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe 240GB drives to test this feature. Since the release of the Z170 chipset, Kingston has been working on updating the firmware again to enable the bootable RAID capabilities of the Intel Z170 chipset. Without any major announcements, Kingston quietly released the OC34L5TP firmware update to enable bootable RAID on the HyperX Predator PCIe M.2 drives when used in conjunction with an Intel Z170 chipset powered motherboard.

Toshiba Canvio Alu 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Sat, Dec 26 2015 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although I’m pretty much certain that most people reading these lines right now own several terabytes of data stored inside one or more desktop drives (both internal and external) i can't be as certain of your portable storage needs. For some people i know even a 32GB USB flash drive is more than enough while for others even 2TB portable hard drives can't seem to keep up with their work and/or hobbies. Personally after some drive problems a few years ago I’ve grown to be an overcautious man so i like to keep backups of most things in our lab on both portable and desktop hard drives and for good or bad this has skyrocketed our storage media capacity/needs to well over 50 terabytes (still nothing compared to some people i know who have over 100 terabytes worth of data). However when I’m on the road even a 2TB portable hard drive is sufficient and since i believe the same applies to most of you out there today we're going to be taking a look at the Canvio Alu 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive by Toshiba.

Seagate 6TB Enterprise NAS HDD Review
     Fri, Dec 25 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Thecus sent me the amazing N7770-10G NAS a little while ago, they also sent along five of Seagate’s Enterprise NAS 6TB hard disk drives. While they are intended for NAS usage as the drive name already suggests, they still deserve a review on their own. Seagate’s Enterprise NAS drives come in capacities ranging from 1TB and all the way up to 8TB, but I only got the 6TB models in today. The Enterprise NAS series is designed for cloud-based systems and NAS application and support the use in systems with up to 16 drive bays, double that of the consumer NAS drives. It is very important to use a drive suited for your area of operation and not just pick any random cheap drive from the shelve. A farmer wouldn’t use an SUV to plow his fields either, it’s just not built for the task. So forget all about misleading Backblaze reports, the figures, features, and warranties speak for themselves here.

Intel SSD 750 400GB PCIe Review
     Thu, Dec 24 2015 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the SSD 750 Intel was the first manufacturer to launch an NVMe-SSD for end users. The drive which is lying front of us in this case performs extremely well pumping out up to 2200 MB/s sequential read and 900 MB/s sequential write throughput performance. Apart from that there is the sheer capacity of this drive as well as the fact, that you get MLC NAND flash memory.

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.
