Samsung's not the only one thinking in three dimensions these days. Micron is debuting its 3D NAND technology with an update to its MX series of SSDs. We put the MX300 750GB drive through the wringer to find out in 3D NAND and TLC balance each other out.

Crucial MX300 SSD Review (750GB)
     Mon, Jun 27 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For what seemed like an eternity Samsung has been the leader in manufacturing 3D NAND. Starting with the release of the Samsung 850 Pro two years ago, they have paved the way for innovation. 3D NAND brings greater capacity, power efficiency, and lower cost to the consumers. After first announcing their 32-Layer 3D NAND last year in March, we have been patiently awaiting Micron and Intel to finally step into the game to combat Samsung in this regard. Luckily for us, we don't need to wait any longer. Today, Crucial releases the Limited Edition MX300, a 750GB, 2.5" 7mm form factor SSD powered by Micron's latest 3D TLC NAND! We can finally get hand's on experience with the collaborative result of Micron's and Intel's labor to see how it compares to the competition. Read on to learn more as we put the Limited Edition Crucial MX300 to the test.

Samsung 750 EVO 500GB SSD review
     Mon, Jun 27 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung has released the 500 GB version of the 750 EVO SSD. The 750 series should be a notch more price-competitive yet offers enthusiast class SATA3 performance. Armed with truckloads of performance and that attractive pricing, Samsung will once again set the tone!

Crucial drops their first 3D TLC NAND powered SSD, the MX300. The MX300 should be more powerful than recently released 2D TLC SSDs. Let's take a look."

Samsung Portable SSD T3 500GB USB 3.1 Gen 1 Drive Review
     Sat, Jun 25 2016 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Portable SSD T1 by Samsung was the fastest USB drive of its kind at launch. The brand new Portable SSD T3 is not only faster and more durable but it's also compatible with Android devices and has a far more attractive price tag attached onto it.

Silicon Power S55 TLC 120GB and 240GB SSD Review
     Sat, Jun 25 2016 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The S55 TLC series of SSDs from Silicon Power are offering quite a bit of storage space at acceptable performance levels unless the buffer gets filled; if we are used to transferring frequently large batches of files to the drive, the speed will decrease to a minimum of about 95MB/s (regular HDD performance levels), but we will still benefit from very good access times."

Crucial MX300 SSD Tested
     Thu, Jun 23 2016 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Marketed under Micron's consumer brand Crucial, the MX300 is their first entrant into the consumer space, as well as the first consumer SSD sporting IMFT 3D NAND. Crucial is known for their budget-minded SSDs, and for the MX300 they chose to go with the best cost/GB they could manage with what they had to work with. That meant putting this new 3D NAND into TLC mode. Now there are many TLC haters out there, but remember this is 3D NAND. Samsung's 850 EVO can exceed 500 MB/sec writes to TLC at its 500GB capacity point, and this MX300 is a product that is launching with *only* a 750GB capacity, so its TLC speed should be at least reasonable.

Crucial MX300 750GB Solid State Drive
     Thu, Jun 23 2016 | 2:37P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
3D NAND is something we started talking about two years ago when Samsung released their 850 Pro solid state drive which was the first consumer solid state drive to feature 3D NAND. With the launch of the MX300 Series Crucial becomes the second company to use 3D NAND in a consumer solid state drive. The drive is engineered with Micron 3D NAND technology, resulting in an endurance rating of up to 220TB total bytes written by leveraging larger NAND cells to deliver top-notch performance and prolong endurance. Furthermore, Dynamic Write Acceleration, a technology that uses an adaptable pool of high-speed and single-level cell flash memory, enables faster saves and file transfers. Compared to 16nm planar NAND, Micron’s 3D TLC NAND triples that density. This not only will help lower solid state drive pricing, but also enable higher capacity drives. Currently the MX300 is only available in a 750GB capacity, which has a price of only $199.99."

Synology DS416slim 4-bay NAS Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
DS416slim NAS from Synology or the baby-NAS as we’d like to call it is incredibly compact for a 4-bay unit (even if we are discussing about 2.5’’ drives), is incorporating an active cooling system, while the back trays can be installed or removed in a snap. The fan can be easy removed for cleaning or replacement and the manufacturer did not omit to include extra USB 3.0 ports for expansion, both in the front and back."

WD My Passport Wireless Pro Review
     Wed, Jun 22 2016 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital (WD) introduced the WD My Passport Wireless mobile storage back in 2014 that allowed tech savvy users to wirelessly connect up to eight devices to backup or share content for up to six hours of streaming. The appeal of a wireless drive is high among photographers where many would like to sync files straight from their Wi-Fi enabled camera or their SD memory card straight to the cloud where many have Dropbox accounts or something similar setup. The good news is that for the past 1.5 years the engineers at WD have been able to take all the feedback from the original device and try to improve it. The result of their hard work would be the WD My Passport Wireless Pro. Read on to find out what the changes are and to see how it performs!

Samsung Portable SSD T3 (1TB)
     Wed, Jun 22 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung Portable SSD T1 released last year at CES is essentially the 850 EVO drive housed inside an external enclosure with a USB 3.0 port. The T1 delivers 1TB of external storage at very high transfer speeds thanks to the solid state storage, as opposed to the spinning platter that is often found in most external portable drives. Samsung has recently launched the successor to the SSD T1 this year at CES. As the the successor, the SSD T3 shares many similar traits as the T1. While the drive is still quite compact, it is actually slightly taller than the S1. However, it is not as thick as the S1 with its flattened body.

Dell XPS 13 Gold Edition Review – Worlds Best Ultra Puts MBA In Its Place
     Tue, Jun 21 2016 | 3:35P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell XPS displays the world’s top performance when examining SSD read and write transfered speeds, although optimized, but that isn’t close to telling the whole story. Dell tied this performance in with Intel’s 6th generation i7-6550U CPU, 8 or 16GB of 1866Mhz RAM, Intel Iris 540 HD Graphics, along with Dell’s 13.3? QHD+ (3200×1800) Infinity Edge Touch Display. The Dell XPS 13 isn’t just the best ultrabook available today, it’s the best of everything. It truly is and it is great to be back Dell!
