Samsung SSD 840 Evo Review:
     Sat, Sep 21 2013 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Flash performance and endurance is a tricky subject, and yet Samsung's flagship, the SSD 840 Pro remains one of the best in both categories. Having aced its attempts at speed and durability, Samsung seems focused on solving flash's biggest sacrifices: size and affordability. Its new SSD 840 Evo lineup has models spanning from 120GB to 1TB, with the largest costing only $0.65 per gigabyte thanks to its use of TLC NAND.

HGST Touro Desk Pro 4TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive
     Fri, Sep 20 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most people that i know of that are professionals either in the video editing business or in graphics designing own several Terabytes of data while some of them working for some of the leading movie studios have as much as 120TBs of total storage. I am certainly not excluding ourselves since currently for backup purposes along we using exactly 28TBs and that`s without including the 22TBs which we have attached on all 3 of our test rigs for daily use. Unfortunately although storage capacity needs get higher each day that goes by we still haven`t seen any 5TB hard disk drive models get unveiled from all the leading manufacturers and although both HGST and Seagate have announced technologies that should allow the manufacture of mechanical drives up to 20TB in capacity (if not more since technology advances all the time) by the end of this decade that`s really of little concern right now. Still sales of 4TB drives have been increasing steadily around the globe and since some of you asked today we will be taking a look at the latest Touro Desk Pro 4TB USB 3.0 External HDD by HGST."

Mushkin Scorpion Deluxe PCIe SSD Review (480GB)
     Tue, Sep 17 2013 | 12:43A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Imagine that you could simply plug a PCIe SSD into your PC and immediately realize performance of over 2GB/s data transfer speeds. For the average PC user that may not seem like much, but for the media professional, or even enthusiast, being able to manipulate and move large amounts of media in seconds can save both time and money, as well as providing some pretty decent bragging rights. Our last PCIe SSD review saw the KingSpec 1TB MultiCore PCIe SSD transfer 29 HD video files in 36 seconds which is just over a second per. Today, were bringing you an exclusive look at the Mushkin Scorpion Deluxe LSI SandForce Driven PCIe SSD and not only are we going to stand it beside the KingSpec for comparison, but also, weve thrown in our all time favorite OCZ Revo 32 PCIe SSD just for kicks. Hows this picture of all three PCIe SSDs running simultaneously look? Heres a bit of confirmation from the OS itself"

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD Review @ OCIA.net
     Sat, Sep 14 2013 | 3:41P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?As most PC enthusiasts know, the right choice of storage media - particularly for the operating system - can make or break the entire build. Earlier this year we reviewed the Vector and Vertex 3.20, two of OCZ`s latest SSD offerings and judging by the Kingston data sheet their HyperX 3K looks to bring an equal challenge to the table. Touting 555MB/s sequential reads and 510MB/s writes, the HyperX 3K 240GB SSD offers impressive performance courtesy of the Sandforce 2 controller... all with a three year warranty.?"

KingSpec 1TB PCIe SSD Capable of 2.5GB/s Speeds & Simple Plug and Play Worlds First Look
     Thu, Sep 12 2013 | 6:46P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So our friends at KingSpec held true to their offer and we just received a brand new KingSpec PCIe SSD from the courier. This SSD is so new that there arent even data sheets available and you wont find this on the KingSpec site just yet. Availability to distributors only occurred a few days ago. Specs for the MC2J677M1T list it at 2GB/s read and write transfer speeds with 84K IOPS. It will be available in 1 and 2TB capacities and its valued in the 2-3K range. On first installation (which occurred within seconds of the handoff), it booted right up to its own drive, verifying that it is simple plug and play. Thank you LSI!"
