MyDigitalSSD 128GB mSATA SuperCache 2 Caching SSD Review
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today’s review is of MyDigitalSSD’s SuperCache 2 mSATA 128GB SSD, and the FNet HybriDisk caching software. A license key for the HybriDisk software is included with the purchase of the SuperCache 2. How does a caching SSD work? It works in conjunction with a hard drive disk (HDD) to create what the operating system sees as a single, combined storage partition. A caching SSD utilizes specialized software to determine what programs, data, and/or files that the user accesses most frequently. This “hot” data will be held in a dedicated “caching” partition on the SSD for much quicker access when called for. Less frequently requested data will still reside on the HDD, until such time as it becomes frequently accessed enough to be moved to the SSD cache. What is stored on the SSD cache is dynamic, and changes over time based on actual usage.

OCZ Vertex 450 128GB Solid State Drive RAID Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Oct 23 2013 | 2:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZs Vertex line of solid state drives have been around for a while and we have reviewed many different Vertex drives over the past few years. If you remember back in 2011 OCZ acquired Indilinx and with the acquisition they were able to create an SSD controller completely in-house. The controller was the Barefoot 3 and it was featured on OCZs Vector solid state drive that we reviewed earlier this year. Well OCZ is back with a new drive in their Vertex 450. It will feature the same Barefoot 3 controller, and new 20nm MLC NAND instead of the 25nm that was being used on the Vector. Today we are taking a look at the 128GB version of the Vertex 450 that features sequential read and write speeds of 525 MB/s and 290 MB/s respectively. Not only that OCZ has sent us two drives so we can show you just how fast these drives are when put in a RAID array together. Read on as we take a look"

Silicon Power Armor A30 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive
     Tue, Oct 22 2013 | 11:20A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve always believed that having an excessive amount of free HDD space available around is always a lot better than to need it and not have it so whenever someone comes up to me and tells me that he/she plans on purchasing a new model to replace the old and smaller one i always say to also keep the old one either as a secondary drive or as an external backup drive even if they think there`s no point in doing that. That being said when it comes to portable needs most people will never even fully utilize a 500GB portable hard drive but there are quite a few people that will do so and to them a 1TB PHD is really a one way. Capacity however is not the only important thing when we`re talking about portable hard drives, the enclosure also pays a significant role since it`s responsible for the health of the drive inside so it`s always preferable to choose one of the rugged models that offer superior protection. The Armor A30 by Silicon Power is the latest addition in their Armor line of PHDs and today we will be taking a thorough look at it."

Crucial M500 960GB
     Sun, Oct 20 2013 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve said for quite some time that the biggest performance increase you’ll see in a system upgrade these days it moving to a Solid State Drive. The improvements of an SSD, in our opinion, are nothing short of astounding. Controller tech, speeds, and storage sizes are the golden trifecta of SSD success. And today we’re looking at the Crucial M500 960GB drive that is poised to address all three. With a massive storage capacity to suit those who don’t want to compromise, the customized Marvell controller inside promises speeds up to 500MB/s Read and 400MB/s Write, and comes with an attractive price tag of $550. That appears to be a solid combination of speed, capacity, and price, so let’s take a closer look at, the Crucial M500 960GB and see how things measure up.”

Toshiba Set To Change SSD Landscape with Upper Tier SSDs at Rock Bottom Pricing
     Sun, Oct 20 2013 | 9:29A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If the fact that Toshiba is now selling retail SSDs to the consumer surprises you, it should. For some time now, the SSD industry has had its eye on Toshiba as they seemed to get caught behind the eight ball. From our perspective, the only Toshiba SSDs we had reported on were the client THNSN 128GB SATA 2 mSATA SSD found in our Toshiba Z830 Ultrabook Review, and the SandForce Driven Toshiba 6Gbps SSD that we briefly spoke of in our MBA Ivy Bridge Mid-2012 Report. For the most part, Toshiba was nowhere to be found in the consumer SSD market, at least until Q3 of this year, and their presence in client systems is still not as those in the SSD world might have predicted. Toshibas importance in the SSD market cannot be overlooked and Wayne Eisenberg (formerly of SMART and now OCZ) provided reason in his article, Examining the SSD Industry Benefits of Owning The Fab. He spoke of the main NAND manufacturers being Samsung, Toshiba, Hynix, SanDisk, Intel and Micron, and these manufacturers having the ability to shape the SSD industry, much to the disadvantage of third party SSD manufacturers. In a nut shell, those who Own the Fab could manufacture and sell SSDs at a lower price than third party manufacturers, forcing them to realign their products in areas that are more likely to support their revenue goals. Examples of this are evident with Patriot and Corsair who have changed product direction slightly, as well as OCZ who seems to be moving more into the enterprise SSD side of things than consumer."
