Western Digital My Cloud EX2 - Redundant Cloud Storage on a Smaller Scale
     Fri, Mar 14 2014 | 10:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Western Digital EX2 fills an important gap in home network storage devices. RAID adds much needed redundancy, and Western Digital`s My Cloud suite lets you get to that redundantly stored data from just about anywhere - even away from home. Speeds were noted to be very good, as the EX2 turned in read speeds exceeding 100 MB/sec over the local network. There were a few quirks in write speeds to USB connected devices, but NAS devices always seem to be picky about writing to externally connected media. Overall, the Western Digital EX2 was impressive, packing a lot of functionality and storage into a neat and tidy package."

     Thu, Mar 13 2014 | 10:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
WD`s Personal Cloud Storage devices aimed at home network-attached storage (NAS) users has been steadily growing since the My Cloud was first announced in October 2013. WD followed that up with a 4-Bay model called the My Cloud EX4 in November 2013 for those that were looking for data redundancy and more storage capacity. The one obvious product that was missing was a 2-bay product, but that all changed with the announcement of the My Cloud EX2 today. The My Cloud EX2 is WD`s answer to those looking for a fully featured 2-bay NAS device. The My Cloud EX2 uses the same firmware and user interface as the other My Cloud products, but utilizes a different hardware platform."

Posted by: STAFF
If you`re like me you like to back up files, install every game in your Steam library just because and record your favorite TV shows to your hard drive to enjoy them on your own time.

Intel SSD 730 Series: Enthusiast Class Storage
     Wed, Mar 12 2014 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has established a strong record in the solid state storage space, dating all the way back to 2008 with its debut of the excellent X25-M series of drives. Back then, Intel upped the ante in enthusiast-targeted solid state storage, and they want to do it again with the drive we’ll be showing you here today, the upcoming Intel SSD 730. The new Intel SSD 730 will be the company’s latest flagship consumer-targeted SSD. The drive, however, features technology gleaned from Intel’s experience in data centers, and is actually quite similar to the DC S3500 we reviewed back in June. Intel is doing a few things to set this drive apart, though. The SSD 730’s controller and NAND components are have gone through additional qualification at the factory and the drive’s firmware is tuned for high performance...

SSD Endurance Diary with OCZ Vector 256 GB @ ocaholic
     Mon, Mar 10 2014 | 10:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Meanwhile most enthusiasts have an SSD in their PC and since manufacturers are successfully conquering the mass maket with SSDs, these new, quick drives are nowadays widely spread. In the past there were quite a few drives that died an all sudden death. Even today customers are not sure for how long their SSD will last and especially the P/E-cylce count (program/erase cycles) is something that worries quite a few well informed users. In this diary we`re going to check what it takes to use up all P/E-cycles an OCZ Vector SSD has to offer, that features 256 Gigabyte capacity. So what is your guess, how long is it going to take until the drive refuses to work."

Intel 730 240GB Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Mar 10 2014 | 5:56A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel 520 we reviewed impressed us throughout and while it wasn`t perfect, it would certainly have been high on our shopping list. Today we see an evolution of that SSD with the new and hopefully improved Intel 730. This time around we are testing the smaller 240GB version but again Intel do offer this SSD in the larger 480GB capacity. There is a key difference other than the size of the storage between the two drives which we will discuss later in the review but it, rather than the capacity could very well be the deciding factor of which drive you choose to purchase."

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.
