Crucial M550 2.5 SATA SSD Full Capacity Roundup
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 3:53P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Crucial M550 series demonstrates an excellent use of the Marvell 88SS9189 controller. With firmware performance tweaks and intelligent die arrangements in the smaller capacities, Crucial was able to keep the performance very high across a broad range of capacities. Typically we see the smaller capacity points of a given SSD line suffer in performance. Crucial was able to minimize this by incorporating higher counts of smaller capacity dies into the smaller models. Keeping the die count high helps maintain parallelism, which ultimately results in great write performance."

ADATA DashDrive Elite SE720 External SSD Review @HiTech Legion

Posted by: STAFF
The ADATA DashDrive Elite SE720 is an external USB 3.0 SSD with read/write speeds of 400/300MB/sec.

OCZ ARC 100 SSD Review (240GB)
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 10:32A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been quite a while since we have seen a value oriented SSD from OCZ. Their last two releases where the Vector 150 and the Vertex 460, the latest updates to their enthusiast and mainstream drive lines. The market need for value drives is very apparent when we consider the popularity that the Samsung 840 EVO and Crucial MX100 drives have gained. Jumping back in with both feet in the water, OCZ has just released their new value SSD, the ARC 100!"

Synology Embedded DataStation EDS14
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EDS14 at its current retail price is very much a niche product. It is a very good product, but it is a product that will only attract a small audience, though we are willing to bet Synology knew that going into it. Overall if the EDS14 sounds like something you have been looking for then we highly recommend it, you surely won’t be disappointed.

SSD Endurance Diary with OCZ Vector 256 GB @ ocaholic
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 1:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Meanwhile most enthusiasts have an SSD in their PC and since manufacturers are successfully conquering the mass maket with SSDs, these new, quick drives are nowadays widely spread. In the past there were quite a few drives that died an all sudden death. Even today customers are not sure for how long their SSD will last and especially the P/E-cylce count (program/erase cycles) is something that worries quite a few well informed users. In this diary we`re going to check what it takes to use up all P/E-cycles an OCZ Vector SSD has to offer, that features 256 Gigabyte capacity. So what is your guess, how long is it going to take until the drive refuses to work."

Kingston SSDNow V310 960GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 12:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston entered the Solid-State Drive (SSD) market in 2008 and has been one of the more well known and trusted brands over the years. Last month Kingston announced a new drive in the SSDNow V300 series, the V310. The Kingston SSDNow V310 SSD is currently only offered as a 960GB drive, which just happens to be the largest capacity ever offered by Kingston. The V310 960GB drive is powered by a Phison 3108 controller (aka Phison S8), which was first introduced in 2012. Read on to see how it performs when we put it to the test!"

OCZ ARC 100 Series SSD review (240GB)
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 10:32A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html ,Ever since OCZ decided to solely focus on their SSD products, their drive offerings have leaned towards workstation and enthusiast level drives which has left somewhat of a gap in their entry-level or value oriented product line. Given the lower margins for such products and OCZ?s financial struggles (prior to the Toshiba buyout), it?s not very surprising. Their competitors have aggressively pursued this market segment however, and we?ve seen some very economically priced drives from Crucial/Micron, Samsung, SanDisk and others. This is an important demographic as it can be the gateway to building brand loyalty and win over customers who will potentially upgrade to a more performance oriented drive later on. To plug that hole, OCZ is releasing the ARC 100 drive which is aimed squarely at the entry level SSD market, although this doesn?t mean they?ve compromised on performance for the sake of price. They?ve equipped it with their Indilinx Barefoot M10 controller which we know to be a very solid part."

QNAP TS-451
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TS-451 does a lot of new and exciting things and it seems to do them very well. However it hasn’t forgotten about the basics either. When it came to throughput performance the TS-451 delivered, providing some of the best results we have seen. The TS-451’s greatest rival in terms of performance is the DS414, and while the Synology NAS was slightly faster when downloading files, the TS-451 was able to best it in one of our upload tests.

Samsung 845DC PRO Review (400/800GB) - Class Leading Speed and Endurance
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 9:32A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the 2014 Samsung SSD Global Summit, Samsung showcased its latest consumer SSD, the 850 PRO. Just like the 840 PRO before it, we loved the 850 PROs performance and technological advances. In fact, it is probably the best SATA 3 (6Gbps) drive on the market. As an enterprise reviewer, I expected the normal 6-12 month wait before the 850 PRO would spawn an enterprise cousin, as we have seen with the Samsung SM843 and 845DC EVO. That 12 month wait was closer to 12 minutes as Samsung surprised all in attendance with their announcement of the 845DC PRO, alongside the 850 PRO."

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.
