Crucial M550 Solid State Drive Review
     Mon, Aug 11 2014 | 3:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Previous Crucial SSDs from M500 family had a great popularity thanks to their moderate pricing. But performance of M500 series wasn't such great. That is why Crucial has developed the new M550 family with renewed controller and firmware and with new approach to NAND selection. And this refresh is very promising.

Thecus N2560 Dual-Bay NAS Server Review: Budget HTPC Option
     Sun, Aug 10 2014 | 5:08P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thecus N2560 NAS Server is an interesting product that demonstrates what is possible when implementing a low-power SoC like the Atom CE5335. Building on what we saw from the N2310, which featured a proper iTunes server implementation as well as app support for functions like bit torrent downloading, the N2560 provides even more impressive funtionality with the digital audio/video output. Of course this would be useless without good software to drive the experience, but the integration of XBMC as an interface for media playback makes the process of getting files to your TV and sound system extremely simple."

Posted by: STAFF
Next to the 845DC PRO Samsung has also launched the 845DC EVO series. This drive is equipped with TLC NAND flash memory chips and therefore it`s suitable for read-intensive workloads, preserving precious write cycles. Furthermore TLC NAND allows for highly competitive pricing, which you will get with this drive. Overall we`re curious to see how this drive is going to perform."

Cremax Icy Dock MB153SP-B SATA Hot Swap HDD Cage Reader Review
     Sat, Aug 09 2014 | 5:30P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Another interesting reader review is published on OCinside.de today. This time the Cremax Icy Dock MB153SP-B 3-in-2 SATA internal RAID backplane is tested. Each disk can be removed individually, so for example it is not always necessary to run all hard drives, if there are backups or infrequently used data on the hard disk. More advantages would be that each drive has its own status LED for example. Take a look at the latest reader review to see what the Icy Dock MB153SP-B SATA Hot Swap HDD Cage has to offer.

ADATA SP610 SSD Review (512GB) Decent Speeds and a Wicked Price Point!
     Tue, Aug 05 2014 | 3:53P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silicon Motion (SMI) has met with success as of late with release of their SM2246EN SATA 3 SSD controller. It was just under a year ago that we sat with Robert Fan to discuss the future of SM2246EN, while today it can be found in the PNY Optima, Corsair LX, as well as the ADATA SP610 of this report. Our initial thoughts with respect to the SM2246EN were that its success was depend on two things, value and performance. We believe ADATA may have found just that mix in the SP610 and our opinion is that this report is indicative of just that success we hope to see in many of todays SSD purchases."

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.
