Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD Review
     Sun, Jun 29 2014 | 4:14A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung SSDs have been extremely popular which is mostly due to their excellent performance but it doesn't hurt that they've marketed pretty aggressively. Their 840 series, including the EVO and PRO versions, sold very well and were looked upon favorably by many of the review sites including this one. As such, we were excited to get our hands on the new 850 PRO drive to see what Samsung has done to improve upon the 840.

This is next-level stuff

Posted by: STAFF
Most flash memory is limited to a single layer, but the V-NAND chips in Samsung's new 850 Pro SSD stack 32 layers on top of each other. This is next-level stuff, literally, and it's supposed to make the 850 Pro the fastest SATA drive around. We investigate.

Samsung 850 Pro SSD Review
     Sun, Jun 29 2014 | 3:52A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 840 Pro was one of the most successful high-end SSD series over the past few years, and now it's time for an update. Samsung's 850 Pro SSD is powered by the company's cutting-edge in-house 32 layer 3D V-NAND technology, which is said to deliver up to twice the density and write speed of traditional 20nm planar NAND flash.

Samsung SSD 850 Pro 128GB and 1TB Review
     Sat, Jun 28 2014 | 4:13A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past few weeks, we’ve seen a steady stream of new solid state drive releases, from the likes of Plextor, Crucial, and SanDisk. Today, however, Samsung is unveiling something new we think you'll really take interest in. Up next for your reading pleasure, we have Samsung’s brand-new SSD 850 PRO series. The 128GB and 1TB Samsung SSD 850 PRO drives we’ll be showing you here are the company’s latest flagship solid state drives, targeted at client applications. Like the previously-released SSD 845 EVO series, the 850 PRO leverages Samsung’s MEX controller, but these drives are also packing bleeding-edge 32 layer, stacked, 3D V-NAND flash memory that purportedly offers better power, endurance, and performance than traditional MLC NAND...

Samsung SSD 850 Pro
     Sat, Jun 28 2014 | 4:08A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the performance of the Samsung SSD 850 Pro series as good as SATA SSD’s get now, how do they fare in terms of value? Well don’t expect to see the same level of value as we did with the Crucial MX100 series because the cost per gigabyte is nowhere near $0.40. As it stands the 128GB model costs $130 or $1.00 per GB, the 256GB model is $230 or $0.89 per GB, the 512GB model that we tested costs $430 which equates to $0.83 per GB. Then finally there is the 1TB model which costs $730 at a price of $0.73 per GB.

The Samsung 850 PRO
     Sat, Jun 28 2014 | 3:54A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung has certainly been pushing the envelope in the SSD field. For the past two years straight, they have launched class leading storage products, frequently showing outside-the-box thinking. Their 840 PRO series was an impressive MLC performer to say the least, but even more impressive was the 840 EVO, which combined cost-efficient TLC flash with a super-fast SLC cache. The generous SLC area, present on each die and distributed amongst all flash chips within the drive, enabled the EVO to maintain PRO-level performance for the majority of typical consumer (and even power user) usage scenarios. The main win for the EVO was the fact that it could be produced at a much lower cost, and since its release, we've seen the EVO spearheading the push to lower cost SSDs.

"The Samsung 850 PRO delivers on one of the potential answers to ever more difficult flash memory die shrinks. Instead of shrinking, Samsung actually expanded their process back up to 30nm and chose to go vertical! They plugged this new V-NAND into their existing controller technology and really made it sing. The structure and interface improvements of this new flash also go a long way to alleviate some of the small write speed issues seen on typical 2D NAND, making it very resilient to fragmentation over time, which should help out in RAID configurations lacking TRIM support. Overall I'm extremely impressed with the 850 PRO. The only fault I can really find is that intro pricing is a tad high, but to that I say here's hoping we seen an 850 EVO soon!"

Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB Drive Review
     Fri, Jun 27 2014 | 3:57A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We had a look with Seagate’s NAS HDD earlier. This time we’re taking a look at its Desktop HDD counterpart 4TB ST4000DM000 drive. Desktop HDDs are available in capacities up to 5TB. Seagate Desktop HDD 4TB uses an odd spindle spin speed of 5,900 RPM with 4x 1TB platters inside. The 5TB counterpart uses 1.25TB per disk.In the drive’s specification chart, its under “Desktop HDD.15? drive. Other than for desktops and AIO PCs, Seagate recommends this drive for home servers and even for entry-level direct-attached storage devices (DAS). This drive weighs 610 grams and its average operating power is only a 7.5w. Its obvious that Seagate is aiming for low-power consumption HDD drive, but how good this really is?

Posted by: STAFF
"It has been over a year since the 840 Pro hit the market and competitor drives have continued to evolve since then so now it’s time for Samsung to do the same. Launching today is their new 850 Pro SSD featuring many of the aspects which made the 840 Series so attractive, mixed with some evolutions in the tech used. We will be putting it up against some of the best drives the competition can offer to see how this new model performs."

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.
