ba Q series 128/256/512 GB SSD review
     Fri, Sep 06 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Toshiba wants to be a serious player on the SSD market. The Japanese giant has been doing quite well the past few years as OEM supplier, by selling its SSDs to laptop and server manufacturers. Probably inspired by the success Samsung has been having with its 830 and 840 SSDs, Toshiba also wants a piece of that retail pie. For the first time, Toshiba has released a series of SSDs with consumer-friendly names. In this review we will take a closer look at the 128, 256 and 512 GB versions of Toshiba's new Q series.

4TB version of their Red series NAS hard drives
     Fri, Sep 06 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We were already very much convinced about the qualities of the Red disks from Western Digital we tested earlier. The same holds for de 4TB model. The disk definitely isn't the fastest around, but that's not what is sets out to achieve in the first place. It does, however, consume very little energy, which is very important for disks in a NAS device, which may be on 24/7. Noise levels are also well within the margins of what we consider to be acceptable, even though other disks in the Red line-up were even quieter.

ADATA AXNS360E 128GB M.2 MPCIE SSD Review
     Wed, Sep 04 2013 | 6:46P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NGFF stands for Next Generation Form Factor and was a working name for the new generation of MPCIe solid state drives, now affectionately known as M.2 SSDs. While many imagined the M.2 to be industry standardization for mSATA and similar small SSDs today seen in ultrabooks, a closer look at MPCIe demonstrates that unbelievable performance will soon be seen in a MPCIe design even smaller than mSATA. Having sat with just about every SSD manufacturer at countless tech events this year alone, I can relate that initial predictions of 500MB/s performance for M.2 drives have now grown to unbelievable speeds of 1800MB/s."

Western Digital Red 3.5 4TB and 2.5 1TB NAS HDD Full Review - WD Red Mini?
     Tue, Sep 03 2013 | 10:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s great to see Western Digital expanding their Red line in both capacity and form factor. The 4TB 3.5 model is a welcome addition likely to prompt an upgrade cycle from those who are hungry for more capacity. While the new 2.5 capacities fill what is currently a bit of a niche market, I suspect more small form factor HTPC and portable type devices to become available this coming year, and the 2.5 Red will fit that bill just perfectly."

Samsung 840 EVO 500GB SSD Review
     Sun, Sep 01 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung has boldly inserted themselves into the forefront of the consumer SSD market with apparent ease thanks to some innovation and a few outstanding drives. Just a few years ago, no one would have even mentioned their name in the same sentence with 'SSD' but now they are very much on the minds of consumers. Just taking a stroll through several computer hardware oriented online communities reveals a lot of positive chatter about the drives which come largely driven from online reviews and word of mouth recommendations as Samsung hasn't done a ton of marketing for their drives. Or maybe it just doesn't feel that way. Competitors, on the other hand, may have a different perception and have to be feeling the pressure. Especially those that are reliant on others for components for their builds whereas Samsung is completely self sufficient and can offer lower costs to consumers while still retaining a decent margin. We've recently had looks at the 840 and 840 Pro series of drives and now we've gotten our mitts on the 840 EVO version.

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. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
