Seagate SkyHawk 10TB NVR and DVR HDD Review
     Fri, Aug 19 2016 | 11:21A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’ve recently had a look at the 10TB IronWolf NAS HDD from Seagate and today it is time to take a closer look at its brother, the brand new SkyHawk DVR and NVR hard disk drive with a massive 10TB capacity. Sure, you could use NAS optimized drives for simple video setups, but having a video and camera optimized surveillance disk does bring advantages. Especially when your recorded video is critical.

Toshiba OCZ RD400 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive Review
     Wed, Aug 17 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While the speeds of graphics cards, memory, and CPUs continue to increase it seems solid state drive speeds have been bottlenecked for a while now. With that we have seen storage start to move over to the PCI-Express bus as it is closer to the CPU and that brought with it the NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) protocol. NVMe drives are currently some of the fastest storage options out there for consumers and we took a look at our first NVMe product, the Intel 750, not that long ago. Well now it is Toshiba's turn with their OCZ RD400. Toshiba has turned OCZ into their "enthusiast brand" so new products will still hold the OCZ name, but they are indeed Toshiba products. The OCZ RD400 has sequential read and write speeds up to 2600 MB/s and 1600 MB/s respectively. Let's see what it is all about!"

     Tue, Aug 16 2016 | 2:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial has released new volume size versions of the MX300 SSD series. The MX300 series should offer a bit more storage space yet remain more price-competitive at mainstream to high-end class SATA3 performance.

Synology DiskStation DS916+ 4-Bay SMB NAS Review
     Sun, Aug 07 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes you need a NAS for simple file sharing and other times you need one that packs a lot more punch, features, and expandability. Today I’m taking a look at the latter as I got Synology’s DiskStation DS916+ 4-bay NAS in the test area and I’m going to show you both its features and performance. The DS916+ is available in two version, one with 2GB memory and the one that I’m testing today that comes with 8GB memory out of the box. The NAS is targeted at small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) and IT enthusiasts alike, but that doesn’t mean that anyone else couldn’t get a lot of use out of this NAS.

Apricorn Aegis Secure Key 3.0 Review – Data Protection For Every Security Need
     Thu, Aug 04 2016 | 12:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Apricorn Aegis Secure key 3.0 is a very well thought out security device where it seems that all angles of potential exploitation have been examined and approached with security in mind. Price is excellent when looking at the larger capacity, although somewhat underwhelming when considering the lower capacities. The product build is beyond reproach as the Secure Key 3.0 is, not only dustproof and waterproof but also, it is filled with epoxy to protect the interior components from compromise. An explosion couldn't hurt this device.

QNAP TVS-882 High-Performance 8-bay NAS Review
     Thu, Aug 04 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The TVS-882 High-Performance 8-bay NAS from QNAP delivers very good performances all across the board, beginning with transfer speeds throughout the network and ending with virtual machines which can be run in much better conditions than what we have seen with previous offerings. The Intel Core i3-6100 CPU seems to help a lot the overall build and the fact that we can install up to 32GB of DDR4 memory allows the user to run many more processes at once. The NAS administrator is able to install a mix of M.2, 2.5’’ and 3.5’’ drives and it really does not stop here because in the remaining expansion slots we can install devices to support 10GbE cards, PCIe NVMe SSDs, USB 3.1 adapter expansions and more."

Apacer AS720 Dual Interface SSD 240GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Aug 02 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you think of innovation in the storage industry you typically think of things like M.2 and SATA Express that help enable even faster transfer speeds. Well, a while back I was contacted by a lesser known company in the storage industry called Apacer. They had all of the standard products of course but there was one specific product that really caught my eye. This was their AS720 SSD, at first glance, it wasn’t especially innovative. But I noticed that along with the SATA connection on one end, it also had a new USB 3.1 Type C connection on the other end. This really got me thinking about how useful an SSD with dual interfaces could be. For starters, it is worlds smaller than the normal 2.5 inch USB storage devices because it doesn’t need a thick casing on top of the hard drive or SSD like most external USB drives. I was also thinking about how useful it could be when cloning your old drive to your new SSD, especially with laptops that aren’t going to have two SATA connections. So today I’m going to take a look at Apacer’s dual interface SSD. I’m going to dig inside and see what makes it tick, then test both interfaces to see just how well they both perform.

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.
