HighPoint RocketStor 5322 Review
     Wed, Feb 20 2013 | 1:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you pair the HighPoint RocketStor 5322 up with the RocketRAID 642L PCIe HBA, it`s tough to find an external storage system that will deliver the performance numbers the RocketStor 5322 is capable of. In just about every test the only configuration that would eclipse the numbers by the HighPoint combo is when the storage drives were mounted internally to the native Intel 6Gb/s headers. By delivering a product of this caliber, the end user can significantly reduce the time it takes to run back ups or just move data from an internal drive to one mounted in the RocketStor 5322. In some of the tests the RocketStor 5322 delivered better performance numbers than the internally mounted drive by way of the higher throughput of the dual eSATA connectivity."

How to Install Google Chrome on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Feb 18 2013 | 9:30A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you may know I have recently added a Kindle Fire HD to my gadget list. I actually really like the device. You can read my lengthy review on it here. Amazon tries to keep you in their ecosystem with the Kindle Fire HD. As such you can only download apps that are in Amazons App store. This really does limit you. Amazons silk browser is alright, but there are plenty of better browsers available for Android. Amazon blocks them from their app store, but you are still able to install them. In this guide we will show you how to easily install Google Chrome on your Amazon Kindle Fire HD. This process shouldnt take that long and the best part you do not even have to root your Kindle Fire HD! Lets get started!"

Transcend StoreJet 25M3 1 TB External USB 3.0 HDD
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 5:16A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall I was quite impressed with this little drive. The small form factor and the durable MIL-spec enclosure combined to form an external drive that will serve you for years. While not always incredibly speedy in the synthetic benchmarks, the real-world performance when copying files to the disk revealed that it can easily hang with the big dogs. You might not win any benchmark wars with this little guy but you will definitely have your files backed up in a very reasonable amount of time!"

Samsung 840 Pro Series 512GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Feb 13 2013 | 9:14A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we outlined previously, the 840 Pro is the enthusiast level drive in the 840 Series line of drives from Samsung with the more vanilla (in name anyway) 840 hitting the more budget oriented demographic. The former is rocking Toggle 2.0 MLC NAND while the latter being the first consumer drive to roll out with the TLC NAND. Each share the same controller but between the NAND and firmware differences, the end performance is quite different. Continuing on with our summation of the overall performance, we can`t say enough good things about this drive. Clearly this is one of the fastest consumer SSDs you can buy right now in terms of raw speed with its only real peer being the OCZ Vector drive powered by the Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller. Regardless of the test or benchmark we threw at it, the 840 Pro ended up with the best or second best scores more often than not. Honestly, on the SATA III interface, we probably will not see any drives performing appreciably better... "

Not so long ago Intel started slowly replacing their inexpensive SSD 330 series products with the newer SSD 335 ones. According to the manufacturer, there should be no major differences in the characteristics, but we disagree.

Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V.3 4TB SATA III HDD Review
     Wed, Feb 13 2013 | 5:16A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If we exclude the unfortunate floods that took place in Thailand roughly a year ago (and forced several factories to cease HDD manufacturing and shipping) HDD prices normally get serious cuts each day that goes by (as do SSD prices) and so currently even the highest capacity 4TB models retail at such prices that can be easily purchased by casual users and gamers around the world. That however mostly stands with entry level models that offer exactly what most users want and that`s a good price to capacity ratio without however sacrificing performance. On the other hand however professionals and enterprise users want the best money can buy not only in terms of performance and capacity but also in terms of durability under extreme conditions and that`s where enterprise class HDDs like the latest Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V.3 (former Constellation ES.3) 4TB SATA III come in."

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.
