There is no doubt that the Solid State sector is booming this year, especially in the budget arena. Today we look at the latest budget oriented drive from OCZ - named the 'ARC 100'. This drive is focused on delivering a high 'bang for the buck', priced at $0.50 per GB. OCZ are releasing the ARC 100 in three different flavours - a 120GB, 240GB and 480GB model.

Seagate Barracuda ST5000DM000 5TB Desktop Hard Drive
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 11:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of our readers asked us to look at the Seagate Barracuda ST5000DM000 5TB 3.5-inch internal desktop hard drive as he bought one off of Amazon and was having some performance issues with the drive. We looked into it and discovered that Seagate does not sell an internal 3.5-inch desktop drive on the market. That is strange as we went over to Amazon and found half a dozen retailers selling this particular drive. We got our hands on one of these 5TB drives and tried it out to see what was going on!

OCZ Vector 180 960 Gigabyte Review
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 11:45A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Vector series, OCZ reportedly has drives in their portfolio, which are fast and reliable. Today OCZ is launching their latest model, which goes by the name Vector 180. Compared to the already successful predecessor - Vector 150 - this one should offer even higher sustained performance and apart from that the drive ships with the new management software SSD Guru.

NVMe PCI Express Solid State Drives
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, Intel is taking the wraps off new NVMe PCI Express Solid State Drives, which are the first products with these high speed interfaces that the company has launched specifically for the enthusiast computing and workstation crowds. Historically, Intel's PCI Express-based offerings, like the SSD DC P3700 Series, have been squarely targeted for datacenter or enterprise applications, with price tags to match. However, today Intel is throwing performance enthusiasts another bone with the launch of the Intel SSD 750 series.

Hynix, one of the world’s largest producers of memory chips, has decided to get serious in the SSD market with the SH920 – almost a year after its toe-in-the-water SH910A product. Join us as we put the Hynix SH920 128GB SSD under the microscope.

Intel SSD 750 Series 1.2TB PCIe NVMe Review
     Wed, Apr 08 2015 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While they were hard to find outside of enterprise supply chains, some dedicated users picked up that enterprise part for their enthusiast systems, but many were disappointed as the P3700's enterprise hardware and firmware conflicted with many consumer motherboards' BIOS, rendering it unbootable for some and causing address space conflicts for others. In short, the P3700 was a great product that simply did not function properly with most consumer motherboards. All anyone could do was wait for Intel to spin a consumer product from this enterprise part, and that day is today.

Intel's latest datacenter drives combine a quad-lane PCIe Gen3 interface with the new NVMe protocol to deliver incredible performance with sequential and random I/O. Today, that tag team taps in on the desktop with the high-end 750 Series SSD. We've taken a closer look at Intel's new desktop flagship to see how well the next-generation of PCI Express storage translates to enthusiast PCs.

Intel SSD 750 Series PCIe SSD
     Tue, Apr 07 2015 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You may not know it, but over the past few years we as gamers and enthusiasts have been smack dab in the middle of a bit of a revolution. Sure games don’t seem to push hardware as much as they used too and the focus has been on higher resolutions. But on the storage front performance has been improving with leaps and bounds. Here at LanOC our first hard drive review came about around the same time that the first consumer SSDs were hitting the market. When tested that hard drive saw an average read speed of about 75MB/s. Our first SSD review a few months later put down an impressive 214.6 MB/s. After that we saw speeds increase to 300 and then recently to around 550 MB/s. PCIe drives have performed better than that but none of them promise to put down numbers like todays review. Today I’m going to check out Intel’s first consumer focused PCIe drive that happens to also use NVMe.

Posted by: STAFF
You know how we said in previous reviews that the enthusiast market hasn’t had much action and is just starting to take off? Well, right when we thought we were starting to see some fast PCIe SSDs, Intel decides to step in and release a beast. “A beast you say?” Yes, a fast, high capacity, NVMe, PCIe lane destroying beast! A beast of which those stories about things that go bump in the night could not have prepared you for. Let us introduce you to Intel’s latest disruptive monstrosity, the 1.2TB Intel 750 PCIe SSD.

Samsung 850 EVO mSATA & M.2 Review
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“There were many factors that prevented early SSDs from being a viable replacement to platter drives, MTBF, speed, capacity and of course cost being the most prominent. Since that time we have seen an explosion of manufacturers, capacities, NAND technology advancements and a historic plummet in pricing. Now we’re looking at the latest in the small form mSATA and M.2 SSDs from Samsung, the 850 EVO versions.”

Intel SSD 750 SSD Review
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 2:19P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Designed for enthusiasts and workstations, the key feature of Intel's SSD 750 Series is its adoption of Non-Volatile Memory Express or NVMe, a new performance controller interface set to replace the aging AHCI standard, bringing things like multiple queues, higher queue depths and lower latency with a direct path from the storage to the CPU. The drive is rated to deliver sequential read performance of up to 2.4GB/s with sequential writes hitting 1.2GB

480GB HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSD
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston has really pushed the envelope with the 480GB HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSD that we are reviewing today; promising 1400MB/s read and 1000MB/s write speeds. Don’t fear the Predator. Well, unless you don’t have one that is. The 480GB HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSD is a 480GB Predator M.2. form factor SSD mounted on a PCIe x4 adapter, rated to run at 1,400MB/s read and 1,000MB/s write. If you think about it, that knocks the old method of displaying drive speeds right off the drive speed scale. Kingston can boast a 1.4GB/s read and 1GB/s write Predator drive. How does it perform in real life? Read on to 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.
