Vantec IDE/SATA and NexStar eSATA to USB 3.0 Adapters Review @HiTech Legion
     Wed, Feb 26 2014 | 4:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Vantec has offered some help: their IDE/SATA to USB 3.0 Adatper and its sibling the NexStar eSATA to USB 3.0 adapter. The IDE/SATA adapter will connect to any standard hard drive that uses an IDE(PATA) interface of either the 3.5 or 2.5 laptop variant and also with any SATA drive supporting speeds up to SATA III. It also has a power adapter for getting juice to the drives. Its sibling, the NexStar eSATA to USB 3.0 adapter, does just that. It lets you connect an eSATA drive again with speeds up to SATA III, via USB 3.0."

OCZ Vector 150 120GB SSD Review @HiTech Legion
     Sat, Feb 22 2014 | 2:51P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ Vector 150 120GB SSD shares most of its traits with the original Vector, including the vaunted Barefoot 3 controller capable of managing blistering performance. The biggest change in the OCZ Vector 150 SSD line comes in its NAND flash, which has been changed out to 19nm Toshiba MLC. While the change does not have a huge performance impact, it does have a great impact on endurance and longevity pushing endurance to 50GB of host writes per day for 5-years./"

Crucial M500 960GB SSD - BCCHardware
     Sat, Feb 22 2014 | 9:48A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve been reviewing products long enough that I`m not easy to impress anymore. That being said, there is little to be disappointed with when it comes to the Crucial M500 960GB SSD. It lives up to and exceeds the performance claims and even though the larger block size may make reading and writing smaller files a bit slower than some of the competition, it still delivers excellent performance across the board."

Seagate Desktop HDD 4 TB vs. Western Digital WD Black 4 TB Hard Drive Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Feb 21 2014 | 9:30A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While SSDs are the best choice in roles that need high speed (mostly boot drives for the home user), many people need large amounts of storage space, and traditional hard drives still give the best value per gigabyte. Four-terabyte drives are the biggest drives available today, and today we will test two of them: the Seagate Desktop HDD 4 TB and the Western Digital WD Black 4 TB."

120GB OCZ Vector 150 SSD - BCCHardware
     Tue, Feb 18 2014 | 9:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This drive - although labeled similar to the OCZ Vector, is actually a totally different beast as it now features Toshiba NAND memory instead of Micron or Intel NAND. That is one of the changes we`ll see in OCZ drives going forward - they will all likely have Toshiba NAND and Indilinx controllers."

QNAP TurboNAS TS-470 NAS Server
     Tue, Feb 18 2014 | 3:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up until roughly 5 years ago whenever i needed to download large chunks of data from the internet i had to use my HTPC system which naturally consumed a lot less power than my Intel Core i7 systems. Still even that used almost 90W at idle and although compared to my other systems this was nothing having it turned on almost 24/7 was not really good for my wallet. That all changed however when i received my very first NAS server and i haven`t looked back ever since. True NAS Servers can`t do everything a small PC can right from the box but currently these little devices can do most of what a PC can without however taking up the same space while at the same time their electrical requirements are many times less something that concerns many people especially those who use such devices nonstop for long periods of time. For the past two weeks we`ve been putting through rigorous testing yet another NAS Server by our friends over at QNAP and more specifically their latest and quite powerful TurboNAS TS-470. "

QNAP HS-210 Silent and Fanless 2-bay NAS Review @ Madshrimps
     Fri, Feb 14 2014 | 4:59P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HS-210 is the new fanless 2-bay NAS from QNAP which supports both 2.5 and 3.5 drives; the top cover acts as a large heatsink and is powered by a 1.6GHz Marvell processor along with 512MB of RAM. Thanks to the QTS 4.1 operating system, the NAS is fully featured but unfortunately it does not have a HDMI port for connecting directly to our HDTV."

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.
