Vantec NexStar WiFi Hard Drive Dock Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, May 30 2013 | 9:20A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Using the Vantec NexStar WiFi dock is not much different than any other external dock when wired. Simply plug it into the USB 3.0 connector and the drive shows up just like a flash drive would. Access speeds through USB 3.0 is bottle-necked by the USB interface but still speedy as compared to USB 2.0. We used a 3Gbps Crucial M500 SSD in our test to make sure the drive wasn`t the limiting factor. We hit 422MB/s read and 402MB/s write speeds with this docking station and SSD combination. Wireless performance will vary widely depending on the connection type, signal strength and paired hardware..."

OCZ Vertex 3.20 240GB Solid State Drive Review @ OCIA.net
     Wed, May 29 2013 | 2:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The key difference this time around, however, is the selection of MLC NAND. As the name indicates, the Vertex 3.20 uses 20nm MLC NAND compared to the larger 25nm / 34nm variants found on the original Vertex 3. It`s part of a market-wide push for smaller flash across the board. That aside, everything else under the hood remains virtually the same although LSI now owns SandForce.?"

     Tue, May 28 2013 | 7:40P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ Technology launched their Vertex 3 solid state drive based on the second-generation LSI-SandForce SF-2281 processor back in early 2011, making it a familiar storage product among high-performance enthusiasts.

OCZ Vertex 450 256GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, May 26 2013 | 8:21A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Knowing that the Vertex 450 was going to be very similar to the Vector series drives, we already had an idea of what we would see on the test bench. We certainly weren`t disappointed with performance that lived up to the storied Vertex name. Specifically, we love seeing the consistent performance without the dips we`ve been so accustomed to seeing with the SandForce drives. The Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller is proving itself to be amongst the best available and frankly SandForce (LSI) needs to step their game soon if they wish to keep pace with what we are seeing from numerous other controllers..."

OCZ Vertex 450 256GB SSD Review
     Sat, May 25 2013 | 8:21A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The rapid drop in 25nm flash availability and slow RAMp up of 20nm production puts OCZ in a tough position. Vector availability is about to get scarce and Vertex 3.20 can`t be profitable at less than $1 per GB. OCZ needs a higher profit product with the flash available today and it has to be faster than SandForce to sell, enter the new OCZ Vertex 450."
