Crucial BX 200 480 GB
     Thu, Mar 03 2016 | 4:16P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial's BX200 SSD comes at an incredible price point which is made possible by Micron's new triple-layer-cell (TLC) flash chips. In our testing the drive delivers decent performance, which, combined with pricing, results in a leading price/performance position for the BX200.

Samsung Portable SSD T3 2TB Review
     Wed, Mar 02 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung’s mighty fast and compact Portable SSD T1 that was launched last year has been improved and had it’s capacity increased! Samsung unveiled the Portable SSD T3 at CES 2016 and we’ve patiently waited for a review sample to show up that we could take a look at ourselves. The new and improved portable Solid-State Drive (SSD) features an aluminum enclosure, USB-C connector, the latest Samsung V-NAND and speeds of up to 450 MB/s. If you were a fan of the original Samsung Portable SSD you should like the Portable SSD T3 even more!

Samsung T3 Portable SSD Review (2TB)
     Wed, Feb 24 2016 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have in our hot little hands this morning the Samsung T3 2TB portable SSD and it is pretty amazing to think that this product contains storage space that most could never come close to filling. Mind you, if you had use for the storage of a half million songs, or a few million books, 170 million word documents, or even 1000 hours of movies, this would be the device for you. Still, just consider how amazing this is that we can now keep so much right in the palm of our hand.

Samsung Portable SSD T3 1TB Review
     Tue, Feb 23 2016 | 5:40P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Samsung Portable SSD T3 drives build upon the T1's strong foundation with a few key upgrades and capacities all the way up to 2TB. From a performance point of view little appears to have changed but the T1 already topped our performance charts for USB storage. Notable upgrades include the change to a USB Type-C connector and a more durable metal case.

Samsung Portable USB T3
     Tue, Feb 23 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Around this same time last year, Samsung launched their Portable SSD T1. This was a nifty little external SSD with some very good performance and capabilities. Despite its advantages and the cool factor of having a thin and light 1TB SSD barely noticeable in your pocket, there was some feedback from consumers that warranted a few tweaks to the design. There was also the need for a new line as Samsung was switching over their VNAND from 32 to 48 layer, enabling a higher capacity tier for this portable SSD. All of these changes were wrapped up into the new Samsung Portable SSD T3.

Samsung 750 EVO SSD Review (120GB/250GB)
     Tue, Feb 23 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once every so often we get to look at a solid state drive that stands out from the crowd. A recent out stander to the storage scene was the Intel 750 NVMe PCIe SSD that we have grown to love. What if, you're just entering the storage industry, or even less yet, just purchasing your first prebuilt PC or bare bones kit, and want it to include an SSD? Samsung has the answer, the Samsung 750 EVO SSD!

With 3D V-NAND and new budget TLC drives grabbing all the recent headlines, it's nice to kick back and enjoy some SSDs with tried-and-true planar MLC flash. We put Transcend's SSD370 solid-state drives through our testing gauntlet to see how they measure up.

OCZ Trion 150 480 Gigabyte Review
     Mon, Feb 22 2016 | 2:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Trion 150 series, OCZ shows their second generation of drives with TLC NAND. Therefore it's rather obvious that OCZ is about to continue the price wars when it comes to budget SSDs. Looking for the controller we find a chip from Toshiba and we're rather curious to find out how this drive does in our review.

Samsung T3 SSD Review: Fast, Portable Storage
     Mon, Feb 22 2016 | 1:51P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung leveraged its extensive NAND flash and storage IP and took aim at the high-performance portable storage market last year when it launched its impressive Portable SSD T1 external drive. There are countless portable flash drives and a multitude of external storage enclosures on the market that can house any standard 2.5” SSD. However, the Samsung Portable SSD T1 was something a little bit different. The T1 was somewhat of a "tweener" product that was significantly lighter and more compact than a typical external back-up drive, while offering performance closer to an internally-connected SSD.

Samsung Portable SSD T3 Review
     Mon, Feb 22 2016 | 1:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung’s new Portable SSD T3 offers up to 2TB of amazingly fast external storage in a metal enclosure that’s smaller than a business card, if somewhat thicker. Equipped with the latest USB Type C connector implementing USB 3.1 (Gen.1) protocols, the Portable SSD T3 is now compatible with Android mobile devices that have Type C connectors, as well as Windows and Mac OS. Sporting Samsung’s VNAND flash memory architecture with Turbo Write technology, the drive also comes with easy-to-use security software for Windows, Mac, and Android. Is the Samsung Portable SSD T3 a compelling solution for fast external storage? Benchmark Reviews checks this new drive out to see what it’s got.

OCZ Trion 150 SSD Review: Affordable, Fast
     Sun, Feb 21 2016 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last time we saw OCZ, there were tearing up CES with an upcoming NVMe solid state drive that could transfer data at upwards of 2.7GB/s that was featured alongside a few new SATA-based solutions, like the Trion 150 series we’ll be showing you here today. The OCZ Trion 150 is an update to last summer’s Trion 100, which was the first drive from OCZ to feature TLC NAND and all in-house, Toshiba-built technology. The Trion 100 series of drives proved to be good performers overall, especially considering their relatively affordable price points. As its branding suggests, the new Trion 150 kicks things up a few notches over the Trion 100, thanks to some cutting edge 15nm NAND flash memory and tweaked firmware, that combined, offer increased performance over its predecessor...

Mushkin Striker 480GB Solid State Drive Review
     Fri, Feb 19 2016 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been a while since we had a closer look at Mushkin’s lineup of solid state drives which makes today’s review a little more interesting than just looking at a great perming drive. On the test bench today is the Mushkin Striker 480GB 7mm slim solid state drive and I’ll put it through the usual tests to see how well it 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.
