SanDisk Extreme Pro 480GB Solid State Drive Review
     Thu, Oct 23 2014 | 10:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SanDisk is one of the oldest names in flash storage, they actually developed the first flash based SSD more than 20 years ago. Today I have the pleasure of having their Extreme PRO 480GB drive on the test bench, their newest SSD flagship for the consumer market. This is not a drive that needs to hide anything when it comes to its specifications, as it has a lot to offer. So let’s dive right into mentioning the first thing that springs into our eyes from the packaging; the 10 Year Warranty. This really shows what trust SanDisk have in their drive, besides already calling it both Extreme and PRO, and is something not seen on any other drive in the consumer market. Yes it is true that the Samsung 850 Pro also has it, but that’s really another market segment alltogether and they came to market with it after SanDisk.

Kingwin EZ-CLONE USB 3.0 to SATA & IDE One Click Clone Adapter Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Oct 21 2014 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The time for new computer upgrades are here and one of the most popular ways of speeding up an older existing system is to get a faster and higher capacity solid state drive. After all, you always need more space and the SSD hard drives are getting faster and easier to afford and these silent wonders are getting larger and larger capacity as mechanicals are slowly fading away. But, what about all the data you already have and you have all your settings just right and then there are your pictures. Maybe you need your new setup to stay the way the old one was before. Maybe you just want bigger but not a complete overhaul. You could do a data transfer wizard but that takes time and then you need to do a clean install before you can re-install your settings and sometimes things dont go so well that way. You could save all that heartache and time data with the Kingwin EZ-CLONE USB 3.0 to SATA & IDE One Click Clone Adapter. Its a a shiny little black box that is a very handy duplicator and drive hub by cloning that drive of yours to the new one all in one step data and all."

Micron M600 SSD Review - Digging into Dynamic Write Acceleration
     Tue, Oct 21 2014 | 6:14A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Micron M600 SSDs were certainly challenging to properly evaluate. The dynamic flipping from SLC to MLC flash meant we had to come up with an entirely new routine based on evaluating performance consistency as test samples are filled to capacity. Once we worked out a realistic routine and applied it to a round of competing samples, we were a bit disappointed by the inconsistent results seen from Micron`s first stab at this challenging and apparently tough to execute feature. The new testing method also revealed some additional shortcomings of the Marvell controller not seen in competing SSDs. All of that said, the M600 should bring a competitive cost/GB to OEMs who choose to include it in their system builds."

Some thoughts on the performance of SSD RAID 0 arrays @ Hardware Secrets
     Sun, Oct 19 2014 | 11:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the price of the SSDs dropping, you probably already thought about installing two SSD units on your computer and configuring them as a RAID 0 array, which, at least in theory, increases the performance of the SSD. But what is the real-world performance gain of such configuration? Does the stripe size affect performance? If so, what is the best number to use? These some of the questions we will try to answer in this article."
