It’ll come in capacities of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB although unlike the M500 or M550, a 1TB option is not currently available at this time.

OCZ Vector 150 120GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jul 23 2014 | 10:36A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ like most other manufactures cant just focus on just top of the line or budget products. Its important to cover a wide range of products to make sure you have something to meet all of your customers price and performance expectations. A good example of this was the Vector 150. They obviously also have the Vertex 450 that I reviewed previously. OCZ took the design that the Vertex 450 and original Vector both shared, kept the Barefoot 3 controller, and swapped out the NAND from 25nm IMFT MLC NAND to Toshiba`s 19nm MLC NAND. In other words the Vector 150 replaced the original Vector. OCZs Vector drives are their enthusiast focused drives while the Vertex drives are their top of the line mainstream drives. Lets dig in and see what sets them apart."

Intel SSD 2500 Pro 240GB Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 2:37P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s solid state storage offerings are as diverse as they come. Although Intel started with only a single family of enthusiast-class drives a number of years ago, the company has since expanded its scope to include everything from ultra-high-end PCI Express-based offerings to small, entry-level SATA drives, meant to be used solely as a cache. The product we’ll be showing you here, the just-announced Intel SSD 2500 Pro, falls somewhere in the middle of Intel’s SSD line-up. The SSD 2500 Pro is the follow-up to last year’s SSD 1500 Pro series, which targets corporate and small-business clients. The drive shares much of its DNA with some of Intel’s consumer-class drives, but the Pro series cranks things up a few notches with support for advanced security and management features, low power states, and an extended management toolset.

Zalman ZM-VE300 External Hard Drive Enclosure Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ZM-VE300 is a great tool for having portable data and could save some space by no longer needing disk or disk drives. That being said, it is still something that most PC users would not need or use often, but for those who do need both an external hard drive and the ability to mount ISO files and use a virtual optical drive, there are not many options on the market."

Samsung 840 Pro Solid State Drive Review
     Mon, Jul 21 2014 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For going on two years now, Samsung has been a major player in the SSD market. Before that, Samsung SSDs just didn’t compete. That has all changed with the Samsung 800 series of SSDs and even more recently with the release of Samsung’s RAPID technology for use with Samsung 840 SSDs. Samsung now competes at the top of the market and their SSDs are forces to be reckoned with. In this article, Benchmark Reviews looks at the Samsung 840 Pro SSD’s performance, with and without RAPID mode enabled.

ADATA Premier Pro SP920SS 256GB SSD Review
     Mon, Jul 21 2014 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA Premier Pro SP920SS 256GB uses Marvel 88SS9189 controller, the same controller that is used in Crucial M550. This controller adds LPDDR (or low-power DDR) and improved DevSleep implementation. In fact, if you’re familiar with Crucial M550’s PCB layout, its no different from this drive. What’s different is the SSD uses eight chips of 20nm 32GB Micron MLC 128Gbit NAND chips. Crucial uses 128Gbit NAND for its 512GB and 1TB units, whereas they use 64Gbit NAND for lower capacity 128GB and 256GB unit. I haven’t test Crucial units so it would difficult for me to say how the performance differs in benchmarks and tests. But Micron’ 128Gbit NAND cost lesser, therefore helps to bring 256GB units as the new mainstream choice for users who require faster load for everyday computing requirements. What I can say is how this drive performs in comparison with other drives…

WD My Passport Slim 1TB USB 3.0 WDBGMT0010BAL Drive Review
     Mon, Jul 21 2014 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When the concept of having 2.5” drives started, in countries like India a lot of buyers used to buy a casing and an internal 2.5” drive. Back then, a lot of people used to ask the question “Are company labelled 2.5” external drives worth it?” Things evolved since then: form-factor, warranty, branding presence for external drives, etc. Then the size of the drives slowly shaped ever since manufacturers started to use USB 2.0 port soldered directly on the PCB rather than using an SATA-to-USB sister board. Now? We have USB 3.0!

     Mon, Jul 21 2014 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we look at the all new Corsair Force LX 256GB SSD. Plextor recently released this new addition to their SSD lineup. The series is to compete with Samsung and Micron mostly, in both price and performance. The end result is a very capable and fast SSD that can keep up with the big guns in the market, yet remains priced in a sweet spot. Read the article right here.

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.
