AMD Radeon R7 Series SSD 240 GB Review @ ocaholic
     Sun, Aug 31 2014 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Radeon R7 SSD series AMD is launching their first solid state drive and at the same time OCZ has now a rather interesting customer at hand to grow their foundry business. Based on OCZs proven Barefoot 3 M00 controller and combined with Toshiba A19nm NAND flash AMD appears to be capable of offering a quick drive with very reasonable endurance rating. At this point we`re curious to find out whether AMD succeeded with their plan or not"

Kingston SSDNow V310 SSD Review (960GB)
     Sun, Aug 31 2014 | 8:53A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks back, we published our announcement of Kingstons newest v310 SSD, which features just shy of 1 TB of storage. It was not greeted with open arms. To explain the controversy we were met with from the moment we published this story, the 1TB V310 had a MSRP of $928.00, and random 4K read speeds are stated as (up to) 27,000 IOPS, with random 4K write speeds of (up to) 10,500 IOPS. If you are looking for the slickest and fastest drive on the market today, you can stop reading here. There are other drives available that can achieve higher throughput and at, unfortunately, a lower cost. As we do for every SSD, we requested a review sample nonetheless, and were shocked to find one in the mail just a few days before the Flash memory Summit."

Kingston HyperX FURY 240 GiB SSD Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Aug 29 2014 | 8:53A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are many components in a PC that can be upgraded to make it faster, but none are as noticeable in the real world as upgrading a hard drive to a solid state drive. They have come down significantly in price over the last few years, so it`s now cheaper than ever to upgrade your PC. While some months ago 120 GiB units offered the best cost/benefit ratio, now the times of the 240 GiB units are coming. Today, we will test a new 240 GiB drive from Kingston, the HyperX FURY, which is focused on the low-cost market."

Crucial M550 512GB CT512M550SSD1 SATA3 SSD Review
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial has developed the new M550 SSD, which not only has a significantly better performance, but also provides more usable capacity. Fortunately, we tested all Crucial SSD generations since the first Crucial RealSSD C300 on OCinside.de and see again significant improvements at the current Crucial M550 compared to its predecessors. The Crucial M550 is available as 2.5-inch SATA, mSATA and M.2 SSD with a capacity range between 64 GB and 1 TB. The detailed review will show how fast the energy saving Crucial M550 512 GB CT512M550SSD1 SSD is in comparison to the previously tested Solid State Drives and if it provides good values even in older PCs without AHCI.

Toshiba Nearline MG04ACA500A 5TB SATA III HDD Review
     Wed, Aug 27 2014 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a couple of years stuck with up to 4TB HDD capacity models all three major players in the market have finally crossed the 5TB line and although i can't speak for all of you out there that's become reason enough for both me and several people i know to celebrate since instead of four 4TB drives we can now use two 6TB ones (imagine how much difference that can make for professionals who own entire arrays of 4TB drives). Capacity however is not the only thing that has improved since if you've checked our review of the 6TB Enterprise Capacity 3.5 model by Seagate then you know that performance has also increased quite a bit and although we've yet to test the Helium drive by HGST leaving back its Ultrastar predecessors shouldn't be an issue. Today however our review revolves around the latest addition in the Nearline Enterprise Class product line by Toshiba the MG04ACA500A 5TB SATA III model.

Transcend SSD370 128GB SSD Review
     Wed, Aug 27 2014 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we have the Transcend SSD370 in a 128GB capacity for a closer look. That’s not a terribly flashy name for a drive, but we care less about the marketing and more bang for our buck. How about a measly $70 for this SSD, which also includes a rather impressive accessory package? If you’re looking for a very affordable speed upgrade for a notebook or HTPC with a slim form factor SSD, the Transcend SSD370 128GB might be just the thing you need. Let’s dive in and find out.”

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
