OCZ Vertex 460 (240GB) review @ Bjorn3d.com
     Sat, May 31 2014 | 4:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The acquisition of OCZ by Toshiba at the beginning of this year has put the company in a very interesting position. OCZ now joins the likes of Intel and Samsung where it not only makes its own controller but also NAND chip. This means OCZ SSDs can now all build with in house components. While OCZ continues to use third party controllers (SandForce to be specific) on their enterprise SSDs, they have switched the NAND on these drives from Intel/Micron to Toshiba. For the consumer market, the in house Indilinx controller is the sole controller and like the enterprise drives, the NANDs on these drives are also gone through the transition to the Toshiba NANDs. We first saw it with the Vector 150 that is the successor to the last years Vector. The Vertex 460 that we have here today is essentially the successor to the Vertex 450 with the 19nm Toshiba NAND. "

ASRock Z97 Extreme6 Tests Samsung XP941 M.2 x4 Plextor M6e M.2 x2 and Samsung 840 Pro SATA 3 SSDs
     Sat, May 31 2014 | 8:35A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To anyone not familiar with SSDs, our title might not seem that striking, but it represents a huge step forward in storage technology within a very short time. It also speaks highly of ASRock for again leading the way in advancing storage, as they are the only to incorporate a new SSD innovation into their Extreme 6 motherboard; this of course being a PCIe Gen 3 x4 interface that could accommodate M.2 SSDs up to blazing 32GB/s speeds. Although it may be some time until we get such a small form factor SSD travelling at that speed, this does mean that the Extreme6 is the only motherboard in the world that can accommodate our Samsung XP941 as a boot drive today. In fact today, we are going to be testing not only that XP941, but also the Plextor M6e PCIe x2 SSD and the Samsung 840 Pro SATA 3 SSD."

Kingston Class 10 UHS-1 Ultimate SDXC Card (64GB) Review
     Wed, May 28 2014 | 4:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For todays review we have the Kingston Class 10 UHS-1 Ultimate SDXC 64GB card. Kingston has been making reliable, high performance memory for many years. This SDXC card is no exception. It supports UHS-I technology and supports Class 10 performance when used in a non-UHS-I capable device. What is UHS-I? UHS stands for Ultra High Speed. The -I denotes that the card should have at least a minimum write speed of 10MB/s, aka, Class 10 performance. You will commonly see this as a U with a 1 inside it. The Kingston Ultimate easily meets this spec. and is rated at 45MB/s write and 90MB/s read speeds."

     Fri, May 23 2014 | 4:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Im sure most of you have heard of mSATA solid state drives. They are one of the smallest storage options available. It is most likely that your ultrabook or even your motherboard has a mSATA slot. This gives you the ability to easily add more storage capacity or use an mSATA drive as a caching option. Today we are taking a look at ADATAs flagship mSATA drive the SX300. It is outfitted with the latest LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller. Lets see if this is the perfect drive to add to your system."

ADATA Premier Pro SP920 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, May 23 2014 | 11:18A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA are throwing out some very impressive figures with 560MB/sec read and 500MB/sec write along with 98,000/88,000 IOPS on their 1TB drives. The 256GB drive we have on the review test bed today however is most likely to be the popular choice among consumers due to the inflated price of 1TB SSD drives. Costing around 110, the 256GB Premier Pro SP920SS is well positioned and should provide excellent price/performance if the 256GB drive is comparable to the 1TB figures advertised."

Seagate Enterprise Class 6TB Hard Drive Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Wed, May 21 2014 | 1:06P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently Seagate began really pushing the high end of the storage market again with the launch of their Enterprise Capacity 3.5 v4 range. With models at 5TB and 6TB we can create some pretty spectacular storage systems but they are more than just that. Seagate have also tuned them for high performance... so massive capacity and speeds quoted over 200MB/s read/write from a single mechanical drive? Today we have the 6TB version attached to our system, let`s see if it can live up to the claims."
