Examining Intel's Solid State Drive 525 Series
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been quite a while since we last an mSATA solid state drive (SSD) under the microscope. It's actually only been about two years, and if you care to jump into our time machine, you can see what we had to say about Intel's 310 Series mSATA SSD in 80GB form. The idea then was the same as it is now -- to offer full-size SSD features and performance in a smaller form factor that can wiggle into increasingly thinner Ultrabooks and mini PCs like Intel's Next Unit of Computing (NUC). Intel's forging ahead with mSATA SSD production and just recently released its 525 Series (Lincoln Crest), essentially a smaller version of the company's high octane 2.5-inch 520 Series...

ASUStor AS-604T 4-Bay NAS - BCCHardware
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 3:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That`s right. At the end of the day the ASUStor AS-604T has no major complaints about it at all. It starts up and shuts down quickly. It`s quiet. It`s fast. It`s powerful. It has a lot of flexibility and options that make it work in almost any situation - home or office. On a good network, it is so fast that you won`t be able to tell in many situations if your storage is local, USB 3.0 or on this NAS. This box has some great features and comes in at $100+ less than something comparable. That is another win. . ."

SSDS: TRIMcheck: Does Your SSD Really have TRIM Working?
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 9:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The question of whether TRIM is working, and working correctly, remains to be one of the most active SSD discussions to date. What started out as a Forum thread identifying a free new software that allows the SSD user to determine if TRIM is working, has grown to a full-fledged working group where new members and our `in house SSD expertise` tackle a program that seems to be grabbing the interest of the SSD community. Enter TRIMcheck."

With a size and weight less than most smartphones, the DashDrive Elite easily fits in your pocket or travel bag and with only one cable to worry with, you're not going to be tied to a socket either.”

Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V.3 4TB SAS 6Gb/s HDD Review
     Thu, Apr 04 2013 | 9:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to PCs and MACs most people believe that the heart of the system is the CPU with the exception of gamers who naturally put the GPU (graphics card) above everything else. I too had the same opinion almost a decade ago but slowly and after countless of storage related reviews i begun to realize that the true heart of a system is neither the CPU nor the GPU but rather the storage device regardless of whether we are talking about mechanical HDDs or SSDs. You see no matter of what kind of CPU or GPU a system has you can always perform certain functions, perhaps not the highest demanding ones but you can nevertheless. However without a storage device or with one that has but a limited available capacity there`s really that many things one can do especially nowadays when most people have several TBs of data. Now last month we tested the latest Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V.3 4TB SATA III enterprise class hard disk drives (former Constellation ES.3) by Seagate which pretty much dominated the competition. Well today we will be taking a look at the SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) variants which as you will see later on had no issue surpassing their SATA brothers to become the fastest HDDs to ever pass from our test bench."

HGST Touro Mobile Pro 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Wed, Apr 03 2013 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thanks to the continuous price drops of storage media devices in the market lately whenever i log onto various forums to participate in various conversations and also see what`s happening around the world i can`t keep up with the number of threads from people who are looking to get new portable USB hard drives and USB flash drives. Unfortunately most consumers seem to first focus on capacity, then performance and leave quality for last but i can`t really blame them with the current state of the economy. However Ive seen quite a few people who always seem to place performance first and for good or bad that`s pretty much the why we do storage related reviews since consumers need to know what performance levels they are getting with their hard earned money. A few months ago we reviewed the very fast TOURO MOBILD PRO 2.5 500GB USB 3.0 portable hard drive by HGST and today we will be testing the latest and even faster 1TB 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.
