Kingston SSDNow UV300 240GB SSD Review
     Tue, Dec 08 2015 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston SSDNow UV300 comes with a Phison controller, and this is the first SSD drive that I am testing with this controller. A 240GB is a fair amount of space for many users, but this should tempt a lot of people picking these up as they cost lesser than the mainstream high-performance counterparts. Question is that how does it perform with a bit older mainstream SSDs.

SSD Performance Comparison Guide Rev. 3.4!
     Mon, Dec 07 2015 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The solid state drive (SSD) is a new and relatively niche storage medium, but one that is slowly but steadily eating away at the universality of the hard disk drive. After all, solid state drives offer some big advantages over hard disk drives - extremely fast random accesses, absolutely silent operation, ability to withstand tremendous amounts of shock, vibration and atmospheric pressure (or the lack thereof). This comparison guide will compare the performance of all the solid state drives we can get our hands on. This would be similar to our Hard Disk Drive Performance Comparison Guide.

Patriot Blast 240GB SSD Review
     Sun, Dec 06 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid state drives have become the number one choice for people looking for a storage media with superior performance levels compared to that of regular mechanical drives. Most people obviously use them as primary OS drives while others have their games installed on them to reduce loading times. Still although all consumers want to benefit from the increased read/write performance levels not all have the same needs/demands neither in terms of performance and endurance nor in terms of capacity. With that in mind manufacturers keep releasing different models in the market in order to cover everyone out there and although it's been a long road ever since SSDs were first introduced we really think they're finally getting there. Patriot just released their budget-friendly Blast line of SSDs and once again we're amongst the very first to get the 240GB model in our hands.

Kingston HyperX Predator 480GB Review
     Sat, Dec 05 2015 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In essence the HyperX Predator PCIe is an M.2 SSD, which has been put on a PCIe adaptor card. Kingston is using a Marvell 88SS9293 controller and combines it with 19nm Toggle NAND from Toshiba. This combination should pack quite some punch and apparently we're curious to find out what this SSD can do.

SanDisk Ultra II 240GB SSD Review
     Sat, Dec 05 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As per specifications, SanDisk Ultra II SSDs promised to run sequential read up to 550MB/s and Sequential write up to 500 MB/s, irrespective of the storage variant. These drives are with three years warranty period. Very recently, SanDisk SSDs namely the Ultra II were a rage during Black Friday online deals, enough that a lot of people purchased it.

When it comes to storing data, there is no 'one-size-fits-all' solution. With SSDs becoming much more affordable, consumers have a broad a mix of high-performance and high-capacity options to choose from, whether in the form of internal storage, external or network attached. Here are our top pics for best performance SSD, best budget SSD, best hard drive, best external hard drive, best home/SMB NAS, and best thumb drives.

HyperX Predator 240GB M.2 PCIe SSD Review
     Fri, Dec 04 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the advent of X99 and Z170 you will see resurgence in storage importance starting with M.2 leading towards NVMe, SATA Express and other PCI Express based storage connections. While SATA devices will remain inexpensive the real power and speed comes from direct PCI Express connections between storage and the CPU.

Intel SSD 750 1.2TB PCIe Review
     Fri, Dec 04 2015 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the SSD 750 Intel was the first manufacturer to launch an NVMe-SSD for end users. The drive which is lying front of us in this case performs extremely well pumping out up to 2400 MB/s sequential read and 1200 MB/s sequential write throughput performance. Apart from that there is the sheer capacity of this drive as well as the fact, that you get MLC NAND flash memory.

SanDisk Extreme Pro 240GB SSD Review
     Tue, Dec 01 2015 | 11:40A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SanDisk Extreme Pro is isn’t something new, it’s a year-old drive. But due to a gradual decrease in cost, higher capacity SSDs of such kind become a good value for many types of users. SanDisk Ultra II and SanDisk Extreme Pro are two of such SSDs along with many other SSDs made by Samsung, Intel, Micron and other brands. The Extreme Pro is based on 64Gbit 19nm MLC and uses a Marvel controller, a bit of an upgrade compared to Extreme II that I’ve reviewed earlier. The best part is that this is the first consumer-grade drive I’ve seen with a ten-year warranty support. Up until now, the norm has been three and Five years, both of which is very reasonable.

Synology DiskStation DS1515 5-Bay NAS Server
     Sat, Nov 28 2015 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Synology has sent over another one of their Network Attached Storage (NAS) servers for us to look at. Along with all of the typical things we look forward to, this one offers some new features that we are also excited to check out. From the model number we know that it is a 5-bay device, and for this review Synology has pre-populated the bays with 4TB Seagate brand drives, giving us a total of 20TB of storage to play with.

Seagate Enterprise NAS 8TB SATA III HDD Review
     Sat, Nov 28 2015 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As many of you know very well nowadays hard disk drive manufacturers are producing different models for different segments of the market so entry level models are designed for casual consumers, business/enterprise grade models are ment for enthusiasts and professionals, NAS drives have been designed for use in NAS (network attached storage) servers, surveillance models are the ones suitable for use in NVR (network video recording) devices and finally automotive models are obviously aimed towards use inside cars. Things used to be a lot easier in the old days since you just had but a handful of models to choose from but today all these different lines allow people to get exactly what they need to get the job done (much like a custom made suit). Seagate released their 8TB Enterprise NAS HDD a couple of months back and since we did test the 6TB variant not long before that we just had to also take the next model for a spin (and we're probably the first ones to do that).

ADATA XPG SX930 and Premier SP550 240GB SATA 6G SSD Review
     Sat, Nov 28 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Both the ADATA SP550 and XPG SX930 drives come in the typical 2.5” hard drive form factor and both of them are also only 7mm thick. The 7mm thickness allows the drive to be compatible with more products as they get smaller and smaller. One of the biggest differences between the SP550 and the XPG SX930 drives though is that the SP550 uses TLC memory and the SX930 uses an MLC setup."

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.
