Seagate Desktop HDD.15 4TB vs WD Black 4TB Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, May 12 2013 | 10:28A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The WD Black and Seagate Desktop HDD.15 are both 4TB drives with 64MB of cache, but they differ internally on how they reach this large capacity. WD uses five 800GB platters and Seagate uses four 1TB platters to reach 4TB. Seagate informed us that the new 1TB per platter design significantly increases the hard drives performance over the competition. It also consumes 35 percent less power than comparable drives on the market with 4TB capacities, so this will be an interesting matchup..."

Asustor AS-606T
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The design and build quality of the AS-606T is excellent, though we have to wonder if Asustor has worked with QNAP is any way, as the design shares an uncanny resemblance to the TS-669L. Like much of the competition, which includes QNAP and Synology, Asustor are only offering a limited 2-year warranty with the AS-606T. Still, given that the AS-606T will likely be run 24/7, there is a good chance any real issues will be revealed within that time period.

iStarUSA BPN-DE340SS Storage Bay Adapter Review
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 6:37A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few years back when we didn`t have 3/4TB drives and we were all struggling to make due with 320/500GB ones there was one thing pretty much every single person i know in the IT industry wanted and that was one or more hot-swap 5.25 storage adapters for 3.5 drives. That way everyone could insert a 3.5 drive, take a backup (or share files with friends), remove it and insert another one in just a few seconds (back then docking stations didn`t really exist). Now things have changed and so to most people even a single 4TB drive is way too much, however we are not most people and the same can be said about professionals and enthusiasts around the globe. Unfortunately feature-rich and high quality 5.25 hot-swap storage adapters that can hold over three 3.5 drives are extremely hard to come by in the market today and if you are to sacrifice most if not all of your 5.25 drive bays you want to make the most out of it. iStarUSA designs and manufactures industrial grade products for the most demanding of users and lucky for us they also make some of the best 5.25 drive cages for both SATA II/III and SAS I/II drives like the BPN-DE340SS."

SSD NEWS: Samsung SM843 Enterprise SSD Review (240GB) - Great Read Performance With a Great Price
     Fri, May 10 2013 | 9:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the enterprise side, things were even more veiled. Unless you were a Tier-1 OEM, you had a difficult time procuring Samsung enterprise drives. Many distributors simply did not carry them as part of their line card, so small and mid-sized companies were out of luck. With the introduction of the SM843, Samsung has taken what has worked so well for the 840 Pro, namely performance, price and marketing, and carved themselves out a great niche in the enterprise market."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
