"Users are always damanding more and more storage space, not only inside their computers, but also as portable external hard disk drives. Nowadays, 2 TB portable external drives are becoming popular, and we will test the Toshiba 2 TB Canvio Connect, comparing it to the Seagate 2 TB Backup Plus Slim and the Western Digital 2 TB My Passport Ultra that we've already reviewed. They are all compact drives and make use of the USB 3.0 interface. Which one is the fastest? Let's see!"

HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe G2 x4 480GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, May 27 2015 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week I took a look at Kingston’s latest HyperX SATA SSD the Savage. Now today I have the chance to look at their flagship SSD the Predator. The Predator is an M.2 x4 drive that is available with and without a PCI Express card to M.2 adapter. For our testing today I will be using it with the adapter to see what everyone can expect for performance, but if your PC supports a x4 M.2 slot you can save yourself a lot of space and keep a PCIe slot open by running the drive through it. M.2 is the replacement for mSATA. Running the drive over M.2 gives a direct connection to the CPU and when run in a x4 configuration it gives us up to 20GB/s bandwidth. In other words for the first time in a long time we aren’t limited by the SATA connection. With that I’m extremely excited to see what the Predator is capable of!

     Tue, May 26 2015 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to choosing a portable hard drive there are quite a lot of options to choose from. When I am looking for a portable hard drive the things I consider is performance, protection, and security. The drive we are taking a look at today has all of these and even a cool way to unlock the drive. The drive I am talking about us the Buffalo MiniStation Extreme NFC and it offers military spec shock protection, IPX3 standard water resistance, IP5X standard dust resistance, and hardware encryption. On top of that it comes with built in NFC technology that with the included SmartCard will allow you to easily unlock the drive. We will be taking a look at the 1TB (HD-PZN1.0U3B) version today."

Seagate Archive HDD 8TB SATA III HDD Review
     Mon, May 25 2015 | 7:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How many of you recall the days when even 340MB of storage space was the highest one could find and consumers had lots of brands they could choose a drive from (well at least in most places on the planet) including Seagate, WD, IBM, Quantum and Maxtor? Well since then (over 15 years ago) things have changed a lot so aside the fact that Seagate and WD are the two largest players right now (for example Quantum was bought by Maxtor which in turn was bought by Seagate) storage capacities have skyrocketed up to a crazy 10TB (10TB=10000000MB). Of course technology never stops progressing so we all knew that this day would eventually come although it did arrive earlier than some expected. Unfortunately as we all know in order to own the latest and highest capacity model you need to spend quite a bit especially if you're looking for a durable HDD with the best possible read/write performance. The good news however is that thanks to Seagate people who place capacity and durability before performance now have a HDD they can turn to and its name is the Archive HDD.

Silicon Power S80 480GB
     Sun, May 24 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The market for SATA solid state drives has matured. Over the last couple of years, the price for the drives has been in a steady decline. If you have been keeping up with our SSD reviews, you would no doubt notice that there are many good budget SSDs on the market today. Many of the budget SSDs such as OCZ ARC 100, Crucial MX100, and Samsung 850 EVO, deliver excellent performance at affordable price. As technology advances, the reliability for the SSDs have also gotten much better. Thus, there is absolutely no reason that you would not want to install an SSD into your system as primary boot device.
