Angelbird SSD2go & Angelbird SSD2go TWIN 480GB
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the rapid progress of technology from one day to the next, concepts, ideas, inventions, and reinventions suddenly turn from wishful thinking into reality. In the case of solid-state drives the burning question was whether we would see a viable external solution. Conventional hard-drives already go their external variant primarily thanks to USB 2.0; with the raw speed and performance of SSDs however, the lagging catalyst was the upgraded USB 3.0 interface standard. Of course a slue of other components were needed as well – cooling, enclosure size, controllers, design, chipsets just to name a few.

Hard Disk Drive Short Stroke Guide
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Short stroking will not magically turn a 7200 RPM drive into a 10,000 RPM drive. As we pointed out in our article, that perception is somewhat illusory as the physical characteristics of the "mo...dded" drive remains the same. However, short stroking will improve performance in certain situations... and believe it or not, most of us are actually short stroking our hard disk drives without knowing it. Surprised? We will clarify it all in this guide."

ULLtraDIMM: combining SSD and DRAM for the enterprise
     Wed, Aug 28 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Using PCI-Express rather than SATA delivers not only a significant increase in bandwidth, but also a respectable decrease in latency. However, while PCI-Express SSD solutions are considered state of the art on the desktop, in server space they have only whetted certain companies' appetite for even lower response times, in order to perform even more calculations per second. Together, SmartStorage Systems and Diablo Technologies have developed a new type of combined flash storage and DRAM memory, integrated extremely tightly onto a small, but familiar package: the DDR3 double inline memory module, more commonly known as a dimm. Its name: ULLtraDIMM.

OCZ Vector 256GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Aug 27 2013 | 6:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Agility and Vertex product lines from OCZ in their fourth generations it was exciting to see OCZ change things up and introduce a new model late last year. With a unique design and an Indilinx controller inside it looks like it could really shake things up. Im excited to see how it will perform, especially compared to the Agility 4 and Vertex 4 that we have recently taken a look at. OCZ gave it the Vector name and in some cases that means a force or influence, lets find out if the OCZ Vector will be a force or influence in the SSD market."

Transcend ESD200 128GB External USB 3.0 SSD
     Mon, Aug 26 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“You are likely familiar with the concept of an external hard drive. It’s simply a standard hard drive of the 2.5? or 3.5? flavor tossed into an external case that connects to your computer typically via USB. Most people have one and use them for transferring large amounts of data or doing PC backups. Transcend took the typical external hard drive idea and replaced the old mechanical drive with a 2.5? SSD. The result is the ESD200 USB 3.0 external SSD, available in 128GB and 256GB flavors. We have the 128GB model to review, so let’s check it out!”

Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB & 1TB Drives
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung has been aggressively bolstering its solid state drive line-up for the last couple of years. While some of Samsung's earliest drives may not have particularly stood-out versus the competition at the time, the company's 830 series and more recently the 840 series of solid state drives-especially the 840 Pro--have been excellent, both in terms of value and overall performance in their target markets. Today we're going to give you a taste of a couple of Samsung's latest consumer-class solid state drives in the just-announced the 840 EVO series of products. As the name suggests, the SSD 840 EVO series of drives are an evolution of the Samsung 840 series. These drives use the latest TLC NAND flash to come out of Samsung's fab, along with an updated controller, and also feature some interesting software that can significantly impact performance as well.

Seagate 600 SSD 240GB (ST240HM000)
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 9:50A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although hard disk drives (or mechanical drives as some call them) have been around for many decades and names such as Seagate, Western Digital, HGST (Former Hitachi GST) and Toshiba have been tied to them only recently did they all of them decide to turn their focus to the manufacturing of solid state drives. Now this is somewhat strange since when the first consumer oriented SSDs started to appear roughly 5 years ago they were manufactured by companies that had nothing to do with storage media prior and although many of us in the industry hoped for the above companies to make a move and take the market by surprise none of them did. Seagate was the first to release an HDD/SSD hybrid with their Momentus XT 2.5 drives along with a couple of enterprise oriented SSD models but that was just about it and so my guess is that they all stayed out of the game not only to see how SSDs would fair in the market (just to be on the safe side of things) but also for prices to drop at acceptable levels. Well Seagate is back again with their first consumer oriented solid state drive model the 600 SSD and today with us we have the 240GB variant."

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.
