OCZ Triton 150 480GB SSD Review
     Fri, Mar 11 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ Storage Solutions, a subsidiary of Toshiba, has a new entry into the burgeoning field of low-cost consumer TLC (triple-level cell) NAND SSDs: the Triton 150. Featuring a new (and somewhat mysterious) Toshiba controller backing up also new Toshiba 15nm TLC NAND, the Triton 150 is aimed squarely at the consumer who’s been waiting for prices on larger SSDs to drop to this level. Historically, drives based on TLC NAND have suffered from significant performance and durability compromises. Benchmark Reviews will run this drive through our gamut of tests to see if these issues are still a factor you should be aware of.

Synology DS416j NAS Review at TechwareLabs.com
     Thu, Mar 10 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DS416j is Synology's latest consumer 4 bay NAS. For some vendors the consumer level is a feature stripped version of their successful lines. Not with Synology read the review to find out why we gave this our Gold Hardware Award.

Although it may not be as reliable as its Enterprise Grade brother (according always to official specs) the NAS HDD 8TB by Seagate still offers impressive performance and reliability numbers that should cover the majority of users.

QNAP TAS-268 QTS and Android Combo NAS Review
     Wed, Mar 09 2016 | 5:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In today’s review, I am taking a look at a NAS that comes with a twist that we previously haven’t seen out-of-the-box. I’m talking about QNAP’s TAS-268 NAS which is a 2-bay hybrid NAS that runs both QNAP’s QTS and Android at the same time. The TAS-268 doesn’t just have a twist in the operating system, the physical form also takes a different approach than most NAS on the market.

Mushkin Reactor 512GB Solid State Drive Review
     Mon, Mar 07 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After I recently had a look at Mushkin’s Striker SSD, it is now time to take a closer look at the Mushkin Reactor SSD and that’s just what I am doing in today’s review. Mushkin’s Reactor solid state drive promises simultaneous capacity and performance while also keeping the initial costs of purchase in the mainstream spectrum. The Reactor drive is available in three capacities from 256GB to 1TB, but I’m taking a closer look at the 512GB model today.

Synology DiskStation DS216+ NAS Review
     Sun, Mar 06 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The two-bay DiskStation DS216+ is designed to bridge the pricing gap between the DS716+ and DS216. Priced at $300 it's the cheapest Synology device to support the more modern B-tree file system (BTRFS). In this review we'll compare the performance between EXT4 and BTRFS while also checking out the new features offered by Synology's latest DSM 6.0 Beta software.

OCZ Trion 150 SSD Review
     Sat, Mar 05 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Entry-level SSDs have been a hot commodity for many companies as of late. In the past few months we have seen many new TLC based options released into the market. Today, OCZ is back at it again with a new release, this time around it is an update to their entry-level SSD series, the OCZ Trion 150. By implementing Toshiba’s latest 15nm TLC NAND and improved firmware OCZ claims that users will see up to 50% faster performance over the original Trion 100. In addition to improved performance OCZ has also revamped the styling to an edgier look, and paired with a lower price point of just $0.27 per GB, the Trion 150 seems to be a very capable contender. Read on as we take a closer look to see how it performs in today’s review.

OCZ Trion150 240GB and 480GB Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Mar 05 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ introduced us to the Trion series about half a year ago and the first drive already impressed us with its performance versus value offering and now OCZ is back with the next generation of Trion drives. The newly released Trion 150 series brings the newest in TLC NAND technology coupled with a great controller in order to provide an amazing drive for people on a budget. Today I’m taking a closer look at this series as I’ll be testing the 240GB and 480GB models.

Crucial BX 200 480 GB
     Thu, Mar 03 2016 | 4:16P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial's BX200 SSD comes at an incredible price point which is made possible by Micron's new triple-layer-cell (TLC) flash chips. In our testing the drive delivers decent performance, which, combined with pricing, results in a leading price/performance position for the BX200.

Samsung Portable SSD T3 2TB Review
     Wed, Mar 02 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung’s mighty fast and compact Portable SSD T1 that was launched last year has been improved and had it’s capacity increased! Samsung unveiled the Portable SSD T3 at CES 2016 and we’ve patiently waited for a review sample to show up that we could take a look at ourselves. The new and improved portable Solid-State Drive (SSD) features an aluminum enclosure, USB-C connector, the latest Samsung V-NAND and speeds of up to 450 MB/s. If you were a fan of the original Samsung Portable SSD you should like the Portable SSD T3 even more!

With the budget-focused SSD market exploding, OCZ is launching the Trion 150, a refresh of their original Trion 100 series which should offer better performance and an even lower price.

Samsung T3 Portable SSD Review (2TB)
     Wed, Feb 24 2016 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have in our hot little hands this morning the Samsung T3 2TB portable SSD and it is pretty amazing to think that this product contains storage space that most could never come close to filling. Mind you, if you had use for the storage of a half million songs, or a few million books, 170 million word documents, or even 1000 hours of movies, this would be the device for you. Still, just consider how amazing this is that we can now keep so much right in the palm of our hand.

Samsung Portable SSD T3 1TB Review
     Tue, Feb 23 2016 | 5:40P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Samsung Portable SSD T3 drives build upon the T1's strong foundation with a few key upgrades and capacities all the way up to 2TB. From a performance point of view little appears to have changed but the T1 already topped our performance charts for USB storage. Notable upgrades include the change to a USB Type-C connector and a more durable metal case.

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.
