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.

Western Digital Black2 Dual Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Feb 12 2014 | 11:36A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes down to it many people have to choose between hard drive speed or hard drive capacity, especially when it comes to laptops or small form factor systems. While solid state drives offer great speeds, they are quite expensive per GB. On the other hand typical mechanical hard drives offer a better value per GB, but are not as fast. Western Digital saw this problem and has come up with a solution in their WD Black2 Dual Drive. This drive features a 120 GB solid state drive along with a 1 TB mechanical hard drive. Now you may think that this is a hybrid drive where the SSD portion acts as cache, but this is actually two separate drives in one. This way you have the 120 GB portion for your OS and important programs and the 1 TB can be used for media and other files. More importantly this drive only takes up a single hard drive spot! Lets check it out!"

OCZ Vertex 460 SSD Review (240GB) Enterprise Performance With an Amazing Price
     Mon, Feb 10 2014 | 12:28P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Only hours after the OCZ Storage Solutions has been announced as the newest member of the Toshiba Group Company, , OCZ is releasing a brand new 460 Series SSD, relying on new partnerships and Toshiba NAND flash memory. If anything, the OCZ story is sure to make an interesting novel one day but, the release of this SSD shows us that the OCZ team has become very good at staying on the right track and deflecting what some might consider serious diversions. Their possession of what might be one of the worlds top SSD controllers, the Barefoot 3, might have a great deal to do with that."

ASRock Z87 Extreme11/ac Motherboard SSD Storage Overview
     Mon, Feb 10 2014 | 10:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its no secret that SSDs have been a major force in tech advance and the force in which theyve impacted could never be covered in a single report. Eyeing the enthusiast or home user alone, SSDs are now a main staple of any PC build. They enable quicker PC start times, increase system performance and reduce scene transition times when gaming. Add to that characteristics such as less heat, less noise, better data protection as well as better battery life for laptop and ultra users.Motherboard manufacturers have been relatively slow to adapt, and their reasoning that SSD progression just hasnt slowed enough yet to grab hold, is valid. In just a few years we have seen consumer SSDs progress from the 3.5 desktop standard, to notebook, mSATA, PCIe and now we are about to experience the smallest form factor yet with the newest M.2 standard. Quite frankly, motherboard manufacturers find that just as they have been able to successfully incorporate one standard, the next appears. The fact that we were formerly limited to two Intel ports for full 500+ MB/s SSD performance didnt help."

Kingston SSDNow KC300 240GB SSD Upgrade Kit
     Sun, Feb 09 2014 | 8:31A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2014 is finally here people and just like one of my friends says each year is a brand new 365 paged book so make sure you all write each page the best way you can. 2014 is a particularly special year since there are many things for us to look forward including the new X99 chipset based mainboards by Intel (finally something to replace our X79 system although we will keep it as well to continue with some of our databases) which will also use the brand new DDR4 RAM, new SSD/HDD hybrid models with large capacity NAND flash, new HDDs with at least 6TB capacities and of course new SSD NAND flash controllers. CES may just be 4 days away but some prototypes may actually make it there in time (if not we will probably see them in this years CeBIT) so if you live near Las Vegas i strongly recommend attending if you`d like a first row seat on everything new to come in 2014.

Posted by: STAFF
Legit Reviews is checking out the new OCZ Storage Solutions Vertex 460 SSD today! We received a 240GB version this time around for evaluation which is pretty much the typical size of a review sample anymore. The Vertex 460 carries the same Barefoot 3 M10 controller we saw in the Vertex 450 and is now paired with 19nm Toshiba MLC NAND. The performance specifications are impressive for what is essentially an entry-level ?performance? drive with reads hitting 545MB/s max and 525MB/s writes max. Read on to see how it performs!"

Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC) D54250WYKH - H is for 2.5 HDD Mount Review @MissingRemote
     Sat, Feb 08 2014 | 10:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel brought out their Haswell Next Unit of Computing (NUC), inclusion of features like SATA made it clear that they had bigger things in store for the little system. They were honest that some of this promise will require 3rd party case OEMs to fully realize, but Intel quickly announced that they would be creating their own chassis with 2.5 drive support a bit later. Providing this feature is interesting to two groups of users: those who have, or want to leverage a 2.5 SSD instead of mSATA or anyone who wants local, rotating, storage in the NUC. As it happens, now is the time, and when I sat down with Intel at CES to talk NUC they had one of the new 116.6mm x 112mm x 51.5mm enclosures for me to take back and run through the paces. *"

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.
