Intel Optane Memory With 3D XPoint Technology
     Mon, Mar 27 2017 | 12:37P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Early last week, Intel revealed its Optane SSD DC P4800X featuring 3D Xpoint memory technology. The Optane SSD DC P4800X is an enterprise-class product, targeted at data centers and mission-critical applications where reliable, ultra-low-latency access to large amounts of data is paramount. Today, Intel is introducing another new product featuring 3D Xpoint memory, but this is one quite literally at the other end of the spectrum. The Intel Optane Memory devices we’ll be discussing here looks like other current generation 80mm M.2 “gumstick” type solid state drives.

Every so often, I get my hands on a new tech device that really makes me smile. Undoubtedly, it becomes a key gadget that I keep with me in my travels, and one that I tend to show off at tech events I attend. The Glyph 2TB AtomRAID portable SSD just happened to show up on our doorstep a few days before our trip to Thailand recently, and its sheer speed in media transfer of over 8000 pictures and videos while on this trip made it a home run.

Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

The Sharkoon Rapid-Case 2.5" USB 3.1 Type C is an external housing which can accommodate 2.5" SATA hard drives or 2.5" SSDs with a maximum height of 9.5 mm. Thanks to its USB 3.1 interface, the Rapid-Case offers a data transfer rate of up to 10 gigabits per second as well as up to 70% increase read and 40% increase write speeds on UASP capable host controllers. The internal SATA interface of the Rapid-Case supports SATA Revision 3.0 and is also backwards compatible to previous Revisions. The
Rapid-Case connects via its included cable with future-proof, two-way Type C plug to every PC, laptop and MacBook with corresponding Type C port. A discreet status LED next to the USB 3.1 interface indicates operation and data transfer.

2.5" hard drives or SSDs can be installed quickly and easily. Unscrew the two housing screws with the provided screwdriver and then connecting the hard drive to the controller board. Once that is done simply slide the hard drive with the controller board into the housing and then screw into place.

The housing is made from robust aluminum and provides optimum protection for the hard drive. It fits into every pants pocket and is ideal for carrying important data thanks to its light weight of only 83 g and slim
profile. The design of the housing is deliberately minimalist-elegant with a brushed surface finish and is available in both black and silver color versions.

The Sharkoon Rapid-Case 2.5" USB 3.1 Type C is now available for the suggested retail price of 24.99 euros from authorized retailers.

QNAP TVS-673 High-Performance Business NAS Review
     Sat, Mar 11 2017 | 12:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
TVS-673 Turbo vNAS from QNAP is a very complex product for handling various tasks, while its hardware based on AMD is upgradeable in terms of RAM and expansion cards. While the model we have tested runs with 8GB of RAM, there are also two other models available, one with 16GB, but also one with no less than 64GB of DDR4, for running even more application modules and virtual machines at once. The AMD R-Series RX-421BD Quad-Core SoC runs at a base speed of 2.1GHz, while in burst it can climb up to 3.4GHz; it does also feature an embedded Radeon R7 Graphics Processor which drives the two HDMI orts in the back."

Asustor AS3202T Multifunctional 4K Quad-Core NAS Review
     Sat, Mar 11 2017 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A NAS today is much more than just a place to store your data. In fact, if that is all you need then cloud storage is probably enough for you. No, a NAS today offers a lot more opportunities and features compared to just a dumb storage device. Whether is is to serve as a personal mail server, be the hub for all your security cameras or just a place to store and stream your media files from, a modern NAS should manage it all.

The ASUSTOR AS3202T is such a modern NAS. With good hardware, app support and even a HDMI-connector it is a NAS intended for the power user or small office.
