Toshiba OCZ VX500 SSD Review
     Sat, Oct 15 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Benchmark Reviews has previously tested both the budget OCZ Trion SSD and the premium OCZ RD400 m.2 PCIe SSD; the new VX500 represents the middle of Toshiba/OCZ’s SSD range. At the time of our reviews, the 512GB RD400 was $309.99 while the 480GB Trion 150 was $139.99; with a price of $154.99, the OCZ VX500 SSD is only slightly more than the budget Trion 150 (whose price has since dropped), but it’s still much less expensive than the RD400. Let’s see how the performance and features compare.

Drobo 5N 5-Bay NAS Review
     Thu, Oct 13 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’ve reviewed quite a few NAS devices in my time here at eTeknix and tried a lot more NAS devices before and during that I haven’t written about, but the one I’m taking for a spin in the testing area this time is something different and not like other NAS devices: the Drobo 5N.

WD Blue 1TB SSD Review
     Wed, Oct 12 2016 | 2:36P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
WD is taking another stab at the Solid-State Drive market after purchasing SanDisk earlier this year by releasing the WD Green and WD Blue SSD series. The WD Green SATA consumer SSD is aimed at the entry-level market whereas the the WD Blue SATA Consumer SSD is aimed at mainstream consumers. Both series are available in both 2.5? and M.2 form factors, so they will fit in a wide range of desktop and mobile systems. The performance on the WD Blue SSD series varies between capacities, but the sequential read peaks at 545 MB/s and the Sequential write tops out at 525 MB/s. The 4K Random performance reaches up to 100,000 IPS read and 80,000 IOPS write, which is pretty solid for the mainstream market. WD went with a Marvell 88SS1074 4-channel controller and SanDisk 15nm 3-bit per cell (TLC) NAND Flash for this series.

Toshiba OCZ VX500 512GB Solid State Drive Review
     Wed, Oct 12 2016 | 2:35P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have a new OCZ solid state drive that fits right in the mainstream with that of Crucial’s MX300 and Samsung’s EVO series in terms of both price and performance. The VX500 is made to replace OCZ’s Vector 180 and is made up completely of Toshiba parts with Toshiba’s TC358790 controller and Toshiba-made 15nm MLC NAND. It is actually quite interesting to see a MLC-based solid state drive come out now with many companies opting for the less expensive TLC NAND. In any case the OCZ VX500 boasts sequential read and write speeds speeds of 550 MB/s and 510 MB/s respectively and is backed by OCZ’s impressive 5-year Shield Plus warranty. Can this new SSD compete with other lower-cost drives out there? Read on as we find out!"

Crucial MX300 2TB 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive Review
     Sun, Oct 09 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I got the largest solid state drive in my test lab that I yet had the pleasure to test, at least when it comes to capacity. The physical size of the Crucial MX300 is still just the 2.5-inch that we’re used to from SATA3 drives and that is the most widely compatible form factor and type of drive on the market. I’ve previously had the pleasure to test the 750GB version of the drive which was the first available capacity in the MX300 series. Since then we have gotten more options and form factors to choose from and this is the largest available.

Crucial MX300 750 GB SSD Review
     Thu, Oct 06 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we test the Crucial MX300 750 GB SSD on OCinside.de. With the MX300 SSD not just Micron 3D NAND is used for the first time in Crucial SSDs, but there are also new sizes at Crucial with 275 GB, 525 GB, 750 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB. In the following review we will take a look at the features of the new Crucial MX300 750 GB SSD and compare benchmark results with many other SSDs from ADATA, Crucial, Intel, OCZ, Plextor, Samsung and Co..

QNAP TS-251A 2-Bay SOHO NAS With QuickAccess Port Review
     Wed, Oct 05 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are a lot of different NAS systems on the market and they each have their ups and downs, or rather the area where they excel – which is great as there is a good chance that there is just the right model out there for your specific needs. One thing has however been missing, at least in my opinion, and QNAP fixes that with their latest NAS, the TS-251A 2-bay NAS system with QuickAccess port. Today I’m taking a closer look at exactly this system and will show you what it can do. Should two bays be too few for you and you rather want four, then QNAP has that covered too with the TS-451A which is the same system, just with double the amount of drive bays.

Review: Samsung 850 EVO 4TB SSD @ Custom PC Review
     Tue, Oct 04 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At Flash Memory Summit earlier this year, Samsung announced their new 48-layer 3D V-NAND and along with that they announced that they’ll be using the new NAND in their 850 EVO SSD, pushing capacities up to a staggering 4TB. Considering 1TB was the largest capacity just 4-5 years ago, a 4TB drive designed..."

Kingston SSDnow UV400 480GB SSD Review
     Tue, Oct 04 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although certainly not made for professional use due to its rather low IOPS performance the brand new Kingston UV400 480GB offers surprisingly good read & write speeds and an excellent price/capacity ratio making it an ideal storage upgrade for consumers.

Asustor AS3104T 4-bay NAS Review
     Mon, Oct 03 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AS3104T is the bigger sibling of the 2-bay AS3102T we reviewed recently. With four bays and a dual-core Celeron processor, the AS3104T is marketed by Asustor as an “all-around multimedia entertainment storage solution” and like the AS3102T it forms part of Asustor’s Personal to Home product line.

Crucial MX300 525GB SSD Review
     Sun, Oct 02 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MX300 525GB SSD from Crucial is marketed as a mainstream product and unlike the regular TLC drives where we have experienced high write performance drops (to about 90MB/s) when transferring large files, the 3D TLC NAND is able to deliver higher writes even after the cache is filled. This is Crucial’s first 3D NAND generation in cooperation with Intel and we expect further to see improvements with firmware upgrades."

Kingston SSDNow UV400 480GB Solid State
     Fri, Sep 30 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We have seen almost all solid state drive manufactures release an “entry-level” drive. This is mainly because of the ready availability of TLC NAND. While these entry-level SSDs do not have the performance and endurance of the high-performance SSDs we all love, they most definitely offer better performance and endurance than traditional hard drives. Kingston is one such company that has recently released an entry-level solid state drive and today we get to take a look at it. The drive is the SSDNow UV400 and it is powered by the Marvell 88SS1074 SSD four-channel controller with Toshiba 15nm 2D planar Triple-Level Cell (TLC) NAND. The drive offers sequential read and write speeds of 550 MB/s and 500 MB/s respectively along with a random 4K IOPS read and write of 90,000 IOPS and 35,000 IOPS respectively. Let’s jump in and see what the SSDNow UV400 from Kingston is all about!"

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.
