Sandisk Ultra Plus 256GB and Extreme II 240GB SSD review
     Thu, Nov 07 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sandisk Ultra Plus 256GB and Extreme II 240GB both made an excellent impression. The Ultra Plus 256GB is the cheapest 256 GB SSD we've tested. While it's not a stand-out in terms of performance, it performs well enough overall, and it's also very energy efficient. It offers a lot of value for your money, so we can definitely recommend the Ultra Plus 256GB if you're looking for an affordable upgrade for your laptop.

Samsung 840 EVO 750GB
     Thu, Nov 07 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Samsung is bringing a few new features to the table here with the 840 EVO SSD, but what’s utterly special that we hope pushes the boundaries further ahead, is something new called RAPID Mode. Sounds simple enough, but the performance increases from RAPID are anything but ordinary. In short, RAPID will move you out of the data transfer slow lane and onto the digital Autobahn like you’ve never before experienced. Buckle up and let’s take a closer look at the Samsung EVO 750GB and see just what this SSD can do.”

ICY DOCK MB992SK-B Dual 2.5in Enclosure Review @ HardwareHeaven.com

Posted by: STAFF
ICY DOCK MB992SK-B Dual 2.5in Enclosure Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Almost all of us have spare drive bays on the front of our PCs and a fair number of us have either got spare parts kicking about or have run out of space inside our system for hard drives. Icy Dock are looking to problems like these with their drive racks/cages which are designed to add storage space to our otherwise empty front of case bays. One such model is the MB992SK-B which we have on our test bench today."

Crucial M4 SSD 128GB Review

Posted by: STAFF
Nothing gets my cooling fans going like a new hard drive! With that, I have yet to hop on the SSD wagon, until now. I have resisted as long as possible because even though the benchmarks were there, the prices just were not. Crucial thinks they can make me a believer and is trying to butter my biscuit with the M4 SSD…

HGST Travelstar 5K1500 1.5TB SATA III HDD
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 11:08A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To my knowledge there are currently 4 types of consumers in the PC market, people who care not about cost just as long they can fulfill their needs (professionals and enthusiasts mostly), people who allow cost to be the decisive factor when choosing a device, people who only care about the specifications of a product and finally there are those who are looking to hit the sweet spot between performance and cost (price/performance ratio) or what i like to call the best value for their hard earned money. Roughly two weeks ago we had the latest and fastest 2.5 9.5mm hard disk drive by HGST on our test bed the Travelstar 7K1000 (1TB SATA III). Now the Travelstar 7K1000 just may be the fastest 2.5 9.5mm SATA III HDD out there as we speak but it has one small flaw, it only comes at 1TB capacity which although not bad on its own it`s really not enough not when there are 1.5-2TB models in the market. Of course HGST is well aware of that so 5 months ago they announced the availability of the Travelstar 5K1500 a 2.5 9.5mm drive with a capacity of 1.5TB and naturally we just had to check it out as we did."

Samsung XP941 NGFF M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes we get fortunate enough to have just the right hardware at just the right time. Such was the case when Sony sent us their new VAIO Pro 13 Ultrabook with a Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe SSD for review. That SSD provided performance speeds over 1GB/s and enabled our statement of the VAIO Pro 13 as being the smallest, lightest and highest performing ultrabook available to the consumer today. In publishing that report, we found ourselves with two Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe SSDs on hand and the opportunity to configure one dynamite RAID 0 configuration, the other XP941 having been the subject of this SSD analysis.
