gate Hybrid Laptop Thin SSHD 500GB Review
     Tue, Apr 23 2013 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seagate has introduced the next generation of Solid State Hybrid Drives, commonly referred to as "SSHD." These drives use a small amount of MLC NAND to accelerate the performance of a 5400 RPM spinning disk. Today we test the mobile version against other available SSD caching solutions.

Corsair Voyager Air review
     Mon, Apr 22 2013 | 12:34P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the Voyager Air from Corsair, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from."

Intel 525 120GB mSATA SSD review: made for Ultrabooks
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel 525 120 GB is an excellent SSD for putting in a laptop that already has a conventional hard disk, and thereby greatly enhancing performance. The SandForce controller is starting to show its age, however, it can no longer keep up with the latest generation SSD controllers.

ADATA DashDrive Elite UE700 USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 12:22P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new DashDrive UE700 is the latest brainchild of ADATA. Using USB 3.0 technology, the UE700 was designed for faster transfer speed of stored data at 200MB/s read and 100MB/s write. This is sure to be one of the faster flash drives we have ever tested, probably even the fastest. With such great advertised speeds, the UE700 is also a nice piece of visual work. Sleek and functional, it could very well be your next flash drive."

OCZ Vertex 3.20 240gb SSD
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Late last year when I reviewed OCZ’s Agility 4 SSD, their Vertex series was still the highest performing model they offered. The Vertex offered both speed and IOPS that managed to just slightly outdo the Agility series. In what feels like a short time since that review, OCZ’s SSD lineup has re-worked considerably; putting the Vertex as their middle end drive, dropping out the Agility 4 all together, and introducing a new Vector line as the king of the hill high performer. The 25nm flash chips in the Vertex 3 were upgraded to 20nm flash and the Vertex 3 was re-launched as the Vertex 3.20 to offer performance not far off from the higher end Vertex 4, just at a more reasonable price. I have a Vertex 3.20 on the test bed today, so let’s see just what kind of performance you can expect from this now mid-range SSD offering.

Crucial M500 Solid State Drive (960GB) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 9:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial M500 Solid State Drive (960GB) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Today we see Crucial attempt to drive the SSD market forward with the introduction of a SSD which has a capacity up to 960GB (so the best part of 1TB) while maintaining a price point which competes with 512GB models from the likes of Samsung and OCZ. Can the new M500 compete in performance as well as cost? In a selection of synthetic and real world tests we find out."

Crucial M500 480GB CT480M500SSD1 SATA3 SSD Review
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since this week the new M500 SSD from Crucial is available is in the stores and this SSD has not only an enormously high performance, but now also offers a capacity close to the 1TB at a price where some other fast SSD starts with the half size. Today we have the smaller Crucial M500 480 GB SSD CT480M500SSD1 with integrated 256-bit AES encryption tested and extensively benchmarked. Crucial declares both the M500 480 GB SSD and the Crucial M500 960 GB SSD CT960M500SSD1 with the same read performance of 500 MB/s and with the same surprisingly high write performance of 400 MB/s. In the review we will see if the SSD is able to achieve this performance and in the SSD benchmark summary we will compare the new Crucial M500 SSD with the previously tested hard disk drives and solid state drives.

OCZ Vertex 3.20 240GB Full Review - Vertex 3 Pushes 20nm Flash
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 6:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ has done a lot of restructuring as of late. They have pared down their product lines and cut away some `excess` divisions in order to focus on a core group of products. This fared well with their launch of the Vector - a very capable drive which continues to outperform to this day. That said, the Vertex 3.20 in its current form seems out of place. It lacks the performance of other SandForce-based units and even underperforms when compared to competition using the same IMFT flash, yet it is priced only marginally lower than their own flagship Vector."

Vantec NexStar WiFi Hard Drive Dock Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Apr 19 2013 | 10:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hard drive docks are nothing new. They have been around for quite some time and we have reviewed a handful of them. The only thing that has really changed in the way of hard drive docks is the connections. When USB 3.0 came out we saw a new round of hard drive docks with the new, faster connection. So what is next for hard drive docks? Vantec seems to think WiFi is. It makes sense, we have so many wireless devices now with tablets and smartphones ruling our lives. So why not be able to access the information on any hard drive without having to have a USB connection on your device? This is where the NexStar WiFi Hard Drive Dock comes in. It is your normal hard drive dock supporting 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives and has a USB 3.0 connection, but it also has WiFi so you can use an iOS or Android device to connect to it and access your files. Lets dive in!"

G-Technology G-Drive Mobile USB 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Fri, Apr 19 2013 | 3:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well lucky for all consumers it seems that the prices of both internal and external storage media (HDDs and SSDs) are still taking a plunge something which i guess explains the sudden spike in sales surrounding such products around the globe. Personally i think that`s a good move from all the manufacturers out there not only because it means we will get to see 5TB drives sooner rather than later but also because there`s no real excuse for anyone to not purchase extra storage now with such low prices (at least the ones that really need the extra space). Still we also have to do our part and so as promised we are focusing on storage media related reviews lately in an effort to showcase/test most of the currently available solutions in the market and to that end today we are taking a look at the G-Drive Mobile USB 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive by G-Technology."

Hardware.Info tests lifespan of Samsung SSD 840 250GB TLC SSD
     Fri, Apr 19 2013 | 2:18P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung’s Series 840 SSDs offer great value for your money, but they use the relatively new TLC type of memory chips. These have a shorter lifespan than the more commonly used MLC chips, but how much shorter exactly? Samsung of course has full confidence in the longevity of their Series 840 SSDs, but there really is only one way to find out just how long buyers can expect a TLC-equipped drive to function: by testing the hell out of it. That is exactly what Hardware.Info will be doing for the next week(s): however long it takes, we will find out how many times you can write to an SSD 840 before it calls it a day. We took two Samsung SSD 840 250GB SSDs, filled them to half capacity in order to mimick real-life use, and started writing to them more than two weeks ago. This writing test will continue without interruption until both SSDs fail. Anyone can check out the progress using our live video stream to see how the drives are holding up. We just posted our second big update, follow the link below to see how the SSDs are doing so far. Spoiler: it’s going really well!

Crucial M500 960GB SSD Review

The Tera-Era has begun! Crucial leverages its 20nm NAND flash to achieve a major milestone, the first consumer 2.5 SSD to reach 1TB. Since parent company Micron owns the flash fab, the price is much better than you might expect."

OCZ Vertex 3.20 120 GB Review @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Apr 19 2013 | 6:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Vertex 3.20 OCZ officially launches their first product that features 20 nanometer NAND from the Intel/Micron joint venture. This step is quite a critical one for OCZ since it means that have to do a balancing act between endurance and price. There are quite a few manufacturers out there in the market that already offer TLC based SSD with significantly lower prices. At this point we just want to tell you, that OCZ does not got for TLC NAND, they stick to MCL chips and we think it`s a good compromise between not only price and endurance but also performance."

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.
