WD Black 4TB Hard Drive Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Jan 02 2013 | 3:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
WDs Black 4TB is the sort of product that doesnt need much of an introduction it speaks for itself. Were dealing with a standard-sized desktop hard drive that sports a market-leading 4TB of storage. Thats 4,000GB, for those not paying enough attention. Its impressive on paper, so lets see how it fares in our benchmarks."

Crucial M4 256GB SATA III SSD Review
     Wed, Jan 02 2013 | 1:21P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial's M4 solid state drive supports RAID, SMART, NCQ, TRIM, self monitoring and self analysis. Average access times are less than 0.1ms. Peak power consumption is 0.15W, idle is a scant 65mW so this puppy can certainly help extend the battery life of any notebook by replacing a spindle'd hard drive. The 1.2 million hours MTBF rating on Crucial's M4 SSD is slightly lower than other solid state drives PCSTATS recently tested, most of which have averaged 2M hours. It's backed by a 3 year limited warranty. Crucial's 2.5" M4 256GB SSD (CT256M4SSD2) retails for around $210 USD/CDN at Crucial.com, or about $0.82/GB. The M4 SSD family includes models ranging from 120GB all the way up to 480GB capacity. The Crucial M4 is priced per gigabyte between the 240GB SanDisk Extreme which runs about $0.91/GB and the 240GB OCZ Vertex 3 which is pegged at $0.78/GB.

OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD VTX3-25SAT3-240G Review
     Wed, Jan 02 2013 | 1:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

The OCZ Vertex 3 is a great little 240GB SSD and just the right capacity to install Windows 7 along with a bunch of programs onto, without worrying for drive space. Since this SSD is rated for 6Gb/s SATA III, you'll find it quicker than first generation SATA II drives and light years faster than a standard mechanical hard drive when it comes to booting up or launching programs. Hard drives are great for storing massive amounts of data, don't get me wrong there, it's just when it comes to your PCs operating system, a Solid State Drive increases responsiveness dramatically.

Sandisk Extreme SSD 120GB/240GB review
     Wed, Jan 02 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With these Extreme SSDs, SanDisk has proven it can make quality SSDs with reasonable performance. Unlike the SanDisk U100 SSDs from its OEM division that perform more like USB sticks in 2.5-inch format, the Extreme SSDs do perform well. And when an important party like SanDisk enters the consumer SSD market, that's only good news for both competition and innovation.

Samsung 840 Series TLC 250GB SSD Review
     Wed, Jan 02 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung leads the way by introducing the world's first SSD equipped with TLC NAND into the market. The Samsung 250GB 840 Series SSD looks to shake up the market by providing an excellent dollar-to-performance ratio by leveraging low cost NAND and the high-powered MDX controller. Does its performance equal the value expectation?

Silicon Power Diamond D03 1TB USB 3.0 HDD
     Tue, Jan 01 2013 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far as value goes, the Diamond D03 is a winner. We were able to find this 1TB drive online for about $75 USD, which is a great price for a drive with that much capacity (and isn't some cheap no name brand). For the extra few dollars you have to spend to go from the 750GB Diamond D10 drive to the 1TB Diamond D03 drive you will get 25% more storage and faster performance which is really a double win. . .

Western Digital Red 4TB HDD @ TechwareLabs.com
     Tue, Jan 01 2013 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the growing popularity of home and small office NAS devices, demand has been growing for a new kind of drive: one that can stand being run all day, every day, but won't break the bank with excessive power draw. Western Digital has developed a new line to fill that role, and today we'll be taking a look at their latest and greatest, the Red 4TB.

Intel Solid-State Drive DC S3700 Review
     Sun, Dec 30 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel set the solid state storage market ablaze when it released the X25-M a few years back. Up until that point, solid state drives had steadily been improving in performance, but there was no real dominant player in the space. When the X25-M arrived though, with its proprietary controller, firmware, and NAND, it blew the doors of the competition and remained “the” drive to own for enthusiasts for quite some time. The X25-M was relatively pricey, but its performance was unrivaled. However, Intel eventually moved away from its proprietary controller technology in the consumer space. But the Intel DC S3700 we’ll be showing you here features a new Intel-built, SATA 6Gbps controller that’s designed to offer more consistent, lower latency performance than previous generation Intel SSDs…

Toshiba DT01ACA100 1TB review: Toshiba's first 3.5-inch
     Fri, Dec 28 2012 | 10:28P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are very happy that Toshiba has now become a player in the 3.5-inch hard disk market after its acquisition of Hitachi, so Seagate and Western Digital at least have some competition. However, it's clear that there is room for improvement for Toshiba. Their marketing department needs to think of more memorable and pronounceable product names than DT01ACA100, at least if they want their disks to be sold separately. Their engineers also have their work cut out for them, because while the disk we tested isn't bad, it's more than one years old. It's nothing more than a re-labeled Hitachi 7K1000.D. The more modern Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 1TB is quite a bit faster, costs the same, and is equally quiet. The choice here is obvious.

SMART Optimus 400GB Enterprise SSD Review
     Tue, Dec 25 2012 | 1:19P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SMART Optimus heralds the beginning of a new era for the datacenter, the inclusion of MLC NAND SSDs into roles typically only served via SLC high-endurance SSDs. Providing SLC-like endurance from MLC NAND sounds like a magic trick or marketing hype at its finest."

SuperSSpeed Hyper Gold S301 128GB w/5.03 FW SSD Review
     Tue, Dec 25 2012 | 1:19P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve tested SuperSSpeed`s S301 SLC before, but a lot has changed since we said it was the fastest SSD in the world. The competition has caught up a bit, and SuperSSpeed now stocks the drive in the US, and we get a newer TRIM fixing firmware."

Review: ADATA XPG SX300 128 GByte mSATA SSD @ Ocaholic
     Tue, Dec 25 2012 | 9:32A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based on a SandForce SF-2281 controller and four synchronous 32 Gigabyte NAND flash chips, ADATA has quite a powerful mSATA SSD in its portfolio. This drive should be able to boost notebooks, which feature an mSATA slot or even desktop PC`s which come with the same feature."

KingFast K Series K25 Ultra-Cache SSD Review @ Madshrimps
     Sun, Dec 23 2012 | 8:30A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The KingFast Ultra-Cache solution is composed from a 32GB SATA2 SSD and special software which will boost our storage system performances after the caching procedure has been completed. What is nice about this solution is that we do not have to perform a Windows system reinstallation to make it work."

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.
