OCZ RevoDrive 350 480 GB
     Sun, Jul 06 2014 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Built for heavy duty workloads, the drive excels where simple SATA 6Gbps RAID arrays start to falter. A two-drive RAID 0 setup using a pair of OCZ's own Vertex 450 drives equipped with OCZ's Barefoot controller give the RevoDrive 350 a run for its money in some workloads, but as the workload increases, the RevoDrive 350 excels. After taking some time to take this drive for a spin, it's tough to find something not to like. It's fast, easy to set up, looks great (for a drive at least), and can handle anything you can throw at it. Equipped with a three-year warranty, you can rest assured that OCZ will be around to take care of any problems now that the company is a subsidiary of Toshiba.”

Samsung SSD 850 PRO Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Jul 05 2014 | 7:51A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid State Drive technology has been revolutionary in that it delivers a very noticeable performance boost that surpasses upgrades to other components. As a result, companies who offer SSDs typically spend small fortunes marketing them to the consumer public. Samsung goes a different route, and relies on proven performance to sale units. This was especially true for the Samsung SSD 840 PRO, which generated its own interest by producing impressive transfer speeds. Powered by their own 32-layer 3D V-NAND technology, the Samsung SSD 850 PRO replaces the 840 PRO solid state drive and delivers up to twice the density and write speed of traditional 20nm planar NAND flash components. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the 256GB Samsung SSD 850 PRO against the fastest solid state drives available."

Samsung SSD 850 Pro 128GB and 1TB Review
     Tue, Jul 01 2014 | 3:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past few weeks, we’ve seen a steady stream of new solid state drive releases, from the likes of Plextor, Crucial, and SanDisk. Today, however, Samsung is unveiling something new we think you'll really take interest in. Up next for your reading pleasure, we have Samsung’s brand-new SSD 850 PRO series. The 128GB and 1TB Samsung SSD 850 PRO drives we’ll be showing you here are the company’s latest flagship solid state drives, targeted at client applications. Like the previously-released SSD 845 EVO series, the 850 PRO leverages Samsung’s MEX controller, but these drives are also packing bleeding-edge 32 layer, stacked, 3D V-NAND flash memory that purportedly offers better power, endurance, and performance than traditional MLC NAND...

Samsung 850 Pro SSD Review - Showing Off With 3D V-NAND
     Tue, Jul 01 2014 | 3:53A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung 850 Pro 6Gbps SSD is the first SSD in the world to use 3D V-NAND. Samsung’s confidence in the 850 is evident with their 10 year warranty, speaking directly to product quality and endurance. Samsung went much further though and, before approving this memory for the retail market, mass-produced and incorporated it within data centers. By changing from a planar structure, Samsung built a 32-layer cylindrical cell structure, stacking more cells vertically and resulting in a smaller footprint and higher density. Having said this, the maximum capacity of the 850 Pro remains to be 1TB.

Samsung's new 850 Pro SSD stacks 32 layers

Posted by: STAFF
Most flash memory is limited to a single layer, but the V-NAND chips in Samsung's new 850 Pro SSD stack 32 layers on top of each other. This is next-level stuff, literally, and it's supposed to make the 850 Pro the fastest SATA drive around. We investigate.
