VR-Zone Posts Intel SSD 5Q Roadmap LSI SandForce Based 530 and 1500/2500 Pro M.2 SSDs On The Way
     Thu, Jul 18 2013 | 11:33A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We aren`t quite sure how they do it but VR-Zone has discovered and published the Intel SSD Roadmap once again, revealing that we should be seeing a 530 release, along with new M.2 NGFF form factors released in the very near future. Believing to remain with LSI SandForce, the 5Q Roadmap identifies the 530 as being available in both SATA 3 and M.2 capacities, based on 20nm memory and reaching a top capacity of 360GB, with higher capacities to appear down the road."

The History Of The Hard Drive @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Jul 18 2013 | 9:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In 1953, engineers in IBMs California-based laboratory invented the very first hard drive. Since that first disk drive, technological advances have been made at an astonishing rate, with data capacity increasing and size and price decreasing exponentially, year on year. 60 years on, the hard drives of today are unrecognizable from the first models, which took up an entire room. Hard drives today are measured in terms of gigabytes and terabytes, rather than megabytes-an amount of data that would have been almost unimaginable in the early history of computers. Here we take a look back at the evolution of the hard drive as it grew from 5MB to 4TB."

Seagate Desktop HDD.15 4TB / Barracuda XT 4TB review
     Wed, Jul 17 2013 | 6:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Desktop HDD.15 4TB is Seagate's official 4TB disk for use in desktop PCs. Unlike the 7200.14 disks, it runs at 5900 rpm, which means lower performance. The high data-density does make the Desktop HDD.15 4TB somewhat faster than most 5400/5900 rpm disks. Just like the 7200.14 disks, the Desktop HDD.15 contains 1TB platters, four of them in this case.

SanDisk Extreme II SSD Review (480GB)
     Wed, Jul 17 2013 | 5:59P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks ago we posted a review on the SanDisk Extreme II 240GB capacity SSD and it turned out to be one of the stronger contenders we have seen to date, and most definitely the strongest using a Marvell controller. We wanted to today follow that up with an analysis of that same drive, this time in the 480GB capacity, as a form of confirmation that this SSD has what it takes to stand up there with the best.

Tech21 Impact Snap Case with Cover (Galaxy S3) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sun, Jul 14 2013 | 11:33A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With some manufacturers we are lucky enough to get a screen protector bundled to enhance the protection offered by scratch resistant glass but its really the bare minimum in terms of device protection. Thats where companies like Tech21 are useful with their range of cases for some of the most popular smartphones. Today we have their Samsung Galaxy S3 Impact Case with cover to look at."

Crucial M500 480GB SSD Review
     Sat, Jul 13 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial's M500 offers the lowest price per gigabyte for an MLC SSD with enterprise-class features not seen on typical consumer SSD data drives. With new 128Gbit MLC NAND paired with the Marvell 9187 controller the M500 should deliver great performance at a historically low price point. Is the Crucial M500's performance up to par?

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.
