Plextor M6S 256GB Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, Jan 20 2015 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our look over Plextor’s M6- SSD product line has seen us look at their M6e PCIe based M.2 drive, where the limitations of the SATA interface are no match for top end performance and more recently the M6M, a mSATA drive that packs the same components but in a tiny frame, with speeds that set it apart from many other drives in its class. Today we’re looking at the final piece of the SSD puzzle with a drive that looks much more standard if it were, with a 2.5? chassis and the same ingredient list that we saw with the M6M and M6e. Available in capacities ranging from 128GB up to 512GB, the M6S offers IOPs speeds of up to 94K read, 80K write with sequential speeds of 520MB/s read and 440MB/s write. Sat at the heart of the drive is a dual-core Marvell 88SS9188 controller giving the drive around 30-50% drop in power consumption compared to the last generation M5S.

Crucial MX100 512GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5-in SSD Review
     Mon, Jan 19 2015 | 2:51P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been a while since I tested an SSD and after using mechanical drives in some of my systems for the past few months, the difference was incredible. The MX100 is Crucial's answer to performance at a price that makes an SSD affordable. This drive has an MSRP that makes it just under $0.45 / GB and if you can find it on sale - it's an even better deal...

WD My Passport Pro 4TB Thunderbolt Portable RAID Drive
     Mon, Jan 19 2015 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In this day and age of digital entertainment, the associated files that are edited to bring you amazing still life imagery or high-definition video require high performance peripherals. With a large amount of digital content producers being out on location and not in the comfort of their studios, their devices need to be portable without sacrificing performance. This is where I believe the WD Passport Pro can be of help, as a portable storage solution that can help take your digital editing to another level on the road."

4-Bay Drobo
     Sat, Jan 17 2015 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The new third generation 4-Bay Drobo is exactly what the company needed, packing the features and reliability of BeyondRAID into a small and quiet unit. The updated hardware enables USB 3.0 throughputs exceeding 200MB/sec, and an integrated battery backup minimizes the chances of data loss or array corruption during unexpected power failures. Most amazing is how Drobo was able to include exceptional build quality at such a low asking price. I used to hold back on recommending Drobo because of its high cost and USB compatibility issues, but those have been essentially been solved."

Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V4 6TB SAS 12Gb/s HDD Review
     Fri, Jan 16 2015 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hard disk drive capacities have increased more (skyrocketed is more like it) in the past 5 years than in the 20 years prior and although we've yet to reach the point which I’ve been waiting for (drives exceeding 20TB in capacity) still we do have models with up to a massive 10TB of available space. Of course although not really a surprise such models are usually equipped with SAS connectivity and are primarily aimed towards business users and professionals who require both capacity and performance. Strangely enough however although the new 12Gb/s standard has been around for quite some time now we haven't really seen many models take that step so most in the market still support the previous generation 6Gb/s standard. Today we will be putting through our usual tests one of the latest HDDs to hit the market by our friends over at Seagate, the Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V4 6TB SAS 16Gb/s (ST6000NM0034) model.

After an exceptionally busy end of year work load we have been able to get a belated look at the Micron M600 Solid State Drive. Today we put it through its paces against many other leading drives on the market this year. The Micron M600 family spans multiple form factors in sizes between 128GB and 1TB, however for our article we are focusing on the 2.5 inch 256GB drive.

Super Talent DuraDrive AT7 SSD Review (1TB)
     Fri, Jan 16 2015 | 2:38P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every now and then, we are fortunate to have SSDs reach our bench that one might not normally find within every day PC systems or servers. Our review today of the Super Talent DuraDrive AT7 SSD is just that; a SSD fully intended for the automobile industry, and more specifically In-vehicle Infotainment Systems. Unlike other examples that we have reviewed though, the DuraDrive AT7 is no more than a SATA 3 notebook size SSD and can easily be flipped inside any PC, as much as it might be used for completely different designs within the auto industry.

Synology DiskStation DS415play
     Fri, Jan 16 2015 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Other strengths of the DS415play include that sleek black chassis design with the glossy hot-swap bay cover that looks so much better than virtually every other NAS device on the market. Complementing the looks is the tool-less tray design, which means users don’t need any tools at all to setup and use the DS415play, making the entire process quick and easy.

6 Terabyte Hard Drive Round-Up
     Thu, Jan 15 2015 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The hard drive market has become a lot less sexy in the past few years thanks to SSDs. What we used to consider "fast" for a hard drive is relatively slow compared to even the cheapest of today's solid state drives. But there are two areas where hard drives still rule the roost, and that's overall capacity and cost per gigabyte. Since most of us still need a hard drive for bulk storage, the question naturally becomes, "How big of a drive do you need?"

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.
