OCZ Agility 4 SSD with an capacity of 256 GB.
     Wed, Aug 29 2012 | 4:30P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" Throughout this review, the OCZ Agility 4 has gone head to head with the best and fastest SATA SSDs currently available. The Agility 4 isn’t quite the fastest SSD in this article, however, it is most certainly a fast SSD, and with very aggressive pricing, it is most certainly one of the cheapest SSDs I have tested. "

OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB with Firmware 1.5 @ ocaholic
     Wed, Aug 29 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since OCZ launched their latest Vertex 4 SSDs several weeks have passed. Meanwhile they`ve released new firmware and according to them version 1.5 should be measurably faster. We`re really curious if there really is a significant improvement."

Vantec NexStar HX NST-330SU3 Hard Drive to USB 3.0 / eSATA II External Case
     Tue, Aug 28 2012 | 4:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"The Vantec NexStar HX NST-330SU3 is an economical external hard drive enclosure for 3.5" SATA II drives that permits extra storage space to be easily added to any desktop computer via USB 3.0 or eSATA cable. The Vantec NexStar features a small 80mm fan to help keep the HDD from overheating over prolonged hours of use - a problem with always on external drives which forget to spin down the disk during idle periods."

Crucial v4 SSD review: very cheap 128 / 256GB SSDs, very low
     Tue, Aug 28 2012 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Crucial v4s are pretty much the cheapest SSDs you can currently find, so it's not fair to expect the best performance. That said, the v4s are a lot slower than all other current SSDs, even the already slow OCZ Petrols. You get what you pay for, and in this case it's not a whole lot. It's almost an inevitable result of the price war that's been going on in the world of SSDs. There are better options out there for affordable SSDs.

SanDisk Extreme SSD 240 GB Review
     Mon, Aug 27 2012 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SanDisk Extreme SSD uses SF-2281 controller and 24 nm flash memory made by SanDisk. We have never a seen a combination like that before, so it is particularly interesting to check it out and see if contemporary Toggle Mode NAND will be able to breathe new life into the second-generation SandForce based platform.

Plextor M5 Pro 128GB review: fastest SSD currently around
     Sat, Aug 25 2012 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Plextor M5 Pro 128GB is the fastest 120/128 GB SSD that we've ever tested. It set new records in PCMark Vantage, PCMark7 and AS SSD. Generally speaking, this SSD is faster than any SandForce-based models, faster than any Marvell 88SS9174-based models, faster than the Samsung SSD 830 and even a bit faster than the OCZ Vertex 4 128 GB which is built around the same chip. Add to that five years of warranty and a fitting package (bracket and data migration software) and we can easily conclude that the Plextor M5 Pro is the ultimate SSD currently on the market.

Intels TRIM Support for RAID Coming to X79 Very Soon @ Hardware Canucks
     Fri, Aug 24 2012 | 10:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel`s Rapid Storage Technology (RST) 11.2 driver update was rolled out to the public but the initial positive response was somewhat tempered when enthusiasts realized their X79 systems weren?t supported.  Only P67, Z68, Z77, H67, H77, Q67 and Q77 chipsets are currently listed as certified, which tends to leave some Intel?s highest paying clients (enthusiasts and power users) out in the cold so to speak.    Amidst the outrage from understandably miffed enthusiasts, we reached out to Intel and asked about their plans for X79 users.  Their response should put some customers at ease."

At less than $1 per GB right out of the gate, this OCZ SSD is already a making waves, but can it still float after Chris gets finished with it?"

CoreRise Comay Venus 3S 120GB SATA3 MLC Synchronous SSD Review @ ModSynergy.com [Updated Re-Release]
     Fri, Aug 24 2012 | 9:20A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Always looking to review the products from companies that most have never heard and also looking for the unique products that customers might want to own, I jumped at the chance in reviewing one of CoreRise`s newest Consumer Grade SATA 3 offering, the Comay Venus 3S 120GB 2.5 SATA III MLC Synchronous NAND Flash SSD. Sporting 120GB of Micron MLC Synchronous NAND flash memory, and utilizing the SandForce SF-2281 SSD processor, read on to know more about the CoreRise brand, what you can expect from their SSD`s, and if SSD manufacturers should take notice with the CoreRise Comay movement. Updated with new Anvil Storage Utilities benchmarks with compressible and incompressible tests...Can you say 90,000+ IOPS?"

Icy Dock MB080U3S-1SB Blizzard & MB559U3S-1S Ultra Slim External Hard Drive Enclosure Review
     Thu, Aug 23 2012 | 10:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall both Icy Dock enclosures faired quite well. On eSATA they were the fastest comparing to an internal SATA connection. For USB 3.0 they both were on par or fairly faster than the Thermaltake offerings we compared against. One thing of note was the temperatures. When the Icy Dock Blizzard was put against the Thermaltake Max 5G, the active cooling features of the Blizzard were cooler by 2C, which in the world of computing are a big difference."

OCZ Agility 4 256 GB @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Aug 23 2012 | 10:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Right after the Vertex 4, OCZ released the Agility 4. Traditionally the Agility series is a bit slower than the Vertex series but therefore they charge less for these drive. Never the less, at 410 Megabyte per second sequential write, 420 Megabyte per second sequential read as well as 48`000 IOPS randon read and 85`000 IOPS random write the drive is everything but slow."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
