SanDisk Extreme Pro & WD Black M.2 NVMe SSDs Review (1TB) – 3.4GB/s and 500K IO
     Thu, Apr 05 2018 | 6:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is not often that we review two separate SSDs within the same report, however this is a rather unique opportunity. Back in 2016, Western Digital acquired SanDisk in one of the largest flash memory purchases ever; a very rare occasion for a company to actually purchase a flash manufacturer. Both companies had very strong customer support and both excel in storage. SanDisk has always been known for its Extreme Pro line, whereas Western Digital had its WD Black line, both being the cream of the crop in each companies storage. Western Digital aims directly for PC Gaming and content creation where SanDisk takes care of the enthusiast segment….and also gaming and content creation. Enter the SanDisk Extreme Pro and Western Digital Black NVMe SSDs.

Toshiba X300 6TB Desktop Internal Hard Drive Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2018 | 6:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Judging by the transfer rates, the X300 6TB drive from Toshiba has performed admirably and easily topped our charts; we were also surprised to see that the seek noises were kept at low levels, while the drive did not overheat during our stress benchmarks. Paired with a SSD as a boot drive, this particular model can be easily recommended for gaming systems, backups, video rendering/encoding, which do take a lot of storage space."

Halos CatDrive 1TB Networked Drive Review Update
     Tue, Apr 03 2018 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks back we posted a review for the Halos CatDrive 1TB networked drive, and well, it wasn't very good. The app's interface was mainly in Chinese, and quite honestly the basic functionality never worked. The Halos team didn't give up and requested we take a fresh look at an updated version of the device. Since the hardware for the device didn't actually change I will only be revisiting areas of the review that are impacted by the firmware update.

SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD Review (1TB)
     Thu, Mar 29 2018 | 4:33P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Portable SSDs provide the added benefit of data mobility and security, in that, media professionals can back up their work on-the-go, with storage of a much higher capacity, a smaller footprint and much faster than just a few years back. Our report today takes a close look at the SanDisk 1TB Portable SSD which is a very good example of all of these qualities…and then some. This SSD moves that line in the sand just a bit further by adding water and dust resistance to the IP55 standard, along with it being shockproof.

Their business has expanded to cover the entire spectrum of professional and consumer computers and test equipment, and today Benchmark Reviews has in hand the new HP SSD EX900 M.2 solid state drive for testing.

Crucial MX500 500GB SSD Review
     Thu, Mar 29 2018 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Considering the fact that the MX500 SSD does feature TLC NAND packages, we were expecting a sudden performance drop after the buffers have been filled, but fortunately it was not the case! The drive succeeded to maintain write speeds around 320-360MB/s (small-medium file sizes) even after writing a total of 176GB in one go. The 500GB version comes with a TBW of 180TB, while the MTTF is 1.8 million hours. Crucial MX500 does also feature a 5-year warranty period, which is great!"
