Kingston UV400 480GB TLC SSD Review
     Thu, Jun 02 2016 | 11:28A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year Kingston Digital released the UV100 SSD series in emerging markets like India, Mexico and Russia. The UV100 series was the first TLC NAND drive for Kingston and was designed to be their low-cost budget friendly Solid-State Drive (SSD). The UV100 series wasn't anything stellar on the performance front, was only available in 60GB and 120GB capacities and had a 2-year warranty.

     Tue, May 31 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the N2810, this is a Linux based NAS unit that is price competitive while it offers great performance. Armed with an dual-core Intel Celeron processor and 2GB of memory with the ability to upgrade. The N2810 can take 2 HDDs, has low power consumption, but most of all can be used for 1080p / 4k HTPC accelerated media playback as it has HDMI out and sports a custom version of XBMC (Kodi).

OCZ RD400 NVMe SSD Review (256GB/512GB/1TB)
     Thu, May 26 2016 | 6:38P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
More MB/s, more IOPS, and lower latencies are what storage enthusiasts dream of. CPUs, RAM, and GPUs are all pushing faster speeds than ever, but storage has typically been a bottleneck for enthusiasts, even after the introduction of SSDs. To enable faster speeds bus bandwidth has been increased over the years and storage has started to migrate onto the PCIe bus so that it is closer to the CPU. With the latest flash technology, protocols have even had to be rewritten to keep up as well. In the past two years Non-Volatile, Memory Express, or NVMe, has replaced AHCI protocol and is now common speak among storage enthusiasts. Thanks to the launch of the Intel 750, the first consumer NVMe product, more and more people have been demanding NVMe products for their systems. With the ability to deliver multiple GB/s read and write speeds as well as hundreds of thousands of IOPS due to great reductions of latency and overhead, we here at The SSD Review can't help but think, who wouldn't want this type of speed?
