Samsung Portable SSD T3 (1TB)
     Wed, Jun 22 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung Portable SSD T1 released last year at CES is essentially the 850 EVO drive housed inside an external enclosure with a USB 3.0 port. The T1 delivers 1TB of external storage at very high transfer speeds thanks to the solid state storage, as opposed to the spinning platter that is often found in most external portable drives. Samsung has recently launched the successor to the SSD T1 this year at CES. As the the successor, the SSD T3 shares many similar traits as the T1. While the drive is still quite compact, it is actually slightly taller than the S1. However, it is not as thick as the S1 with its flattened body.

Dell XPS 13 Gold Edition Review – Worlds Best Ultra Puts MBA In Its Place
     Tue, Jun 21 2016 | 3:35P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell XPS displays the world’s top performance when examining SSD read and write transfered speeds, although optimized, but that isn’t close to telling the whole story. Dell tied this performance in with Intel’s 6th generation i7-6550U CPU, 8 or 16GB of 1866Mhz RAM, Intel Iris 540 HD Graphics, along with Dell’s 13.3? QHD+ (3200×1800) Infinity Edge Touch Display. The Dell XPS 13 isn’t just the best ultrabook available today, it’s the best of everything. It truly is and it is great to be back Dell!

Crucial MX300 750GB Limited Edition SSD Review
     Wed, Jun 15 2016 | 10:20A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the PCI-Express interface is currently the way forward for performance SSD drives, 3D NAND technology holds the key to SSD capacities never even dreamed of before; Samsung’s 16TB PM1633a being the perfect example of this. 3D NAND can help achieve these huge capacities because its fabrication process allows for the creation of much denser NAND chips than the standard 2D Planar process.
