Review: SanDisk Extreme II 240GB SSD @ Custom PC Review
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This is why today we’ll be reviewing the SanDisk Extreme II 240GB, which is SanDisk’s latest high performance SSD offering for the consumer market. Like a number of other SSDs on the market, the Extreme II will come in capacities of 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB. Looking at the capacities, you’re probably thinking “Oh, no! Another vanilla SandForce drive!”, but it’s actually not..."

HGST Travelstar 5K1500 1.5TB SATA III HDD
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 11:08A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To my knowledge there are currently 4 types of consumers in the PC market, people who care not about cost just as long they can fulfill their needs (professionals and enthusiasts mostly), people who allow cost to be the decisive factor when choosing a device, people who only care about the specifications of a product and finally there are those who are looking to hit the sweet spot between performance and cost (price/performance ratio) or what i like to call the best value for their hard earned money. Roughly two weeks ago we had the latest and fastest 2.5 9.5mm hard disk drive by HGST on our test bed the Travelstar 7K1000 (1TB SATA III). Now the Travelstar 7K1000 just may be the fastest 2.5 9.5mm SATA III HDD out there as we speak but it has one small flaw, it only comes at 1TB capacity which although not bad on its own it`s really not enough not when there are 1.5-2TB models in the market. Of course HGST is well aware of that so 5 months ago they announced the availability of the Travelstar 5K1500 a 2.5 9.5mm drive with a capacity of 1.5TB and naturally we just had to check it out as we did."

Samsung XP941 NGFF M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes we get fortunate enough to have just the right hardware at just the right time. Such was the case when Sony sent us their new VAIO Pro 13 Ultrabook with a Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe SSD for review. That SSD provided performance speeds over 1GB/s and enabled our statement of the VAIO Pro 13 as being the smallest, lightest and highest performing ultrabook available to the consumer today. In publishing that report, we found ourselves with two Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe SSDs on hand and the opportunity to configure one dynamite RAID 0 configuration, the other XP941 having been the subject of this SSD analysis.

VisionTek GoDrive 7mm 240GB
     Thu, Oct 31 2013 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“As more consumers move to SSDs, the choices are many in terms of models and capacities. And for those who are productivity-oriented and need a notebook rather than a tablet, and media lovers who want a killer HTPC setup, smaller is simply better. One option is to choose SandForce-based SSD, which is a safe bet for most consumers, as these drives offer a strong blend of speed and affordability. There are many on the market, but today we’re looking at one from VisionTek that is unique in its low profile for those who need something primarily for a notebook or HTPC: the GoDrive 7mm 240GB. Let’s take a closer look at the VisionTek GoDrive 7mm 240GB SSD and see if it packs a punch for its small size.”

Solid State Drive Performance Comparison Guide Rev. 3.2.
     Wed, Oct 30 2013 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The solid state drive (SSD) is a new and relatively niche storage medium, but one that is slowly but steadily eating away at the universality of the hard disk drive. After all, solid state drives offer some big advantages over hard disk drives - extremely fast random accesses, absolutely silent operation, ability to withstand tremendous amounts of shock, vibration and atmospheric pressure (or the lack thereof).

Sony VAIO Pro 13 Ultrabook Native PCIe SSD Review 1GB/s Performance Fastest Ultra Speed To Date
     Wed, Oct 30 2013 | 1:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks back, we published our review of the Sony VAIO Pro 13 ultrabook where we discovered that there were two different configurations of the VAIO being shipped, that with a SATA M.2 SSD and that with a native M.2 PCIe SSD. Not only did the system that we received contain a SATA M.2 SSD, but also, a quick check of the internet revealed that there were several Sony VAIO Pro 13 customers just as surprisedand disapppointed. In subsequent conversations with Sony, we learned that certain pre-configured Sony Pro 13 models shipped with the M.2 SATA SSD, vice the native M.2 PCIe SSD."

Kingston mS200 120GB mSATA SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Oct 29 2013 | 8:04A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that mSATA drives are really starting to grow in popularity, we are seeing more models pop up from various SSD manufacturers. Kingston has the latest one we`ve received powered by a SandForce controller paired with Toshiba NAND. The SSDNow mS200 line is part of their `System Builders` series which they state is specifically designed for use in OEM branded servers. What this means for most is that it`s geared toward mobile hosts with a focus on value (it comes with no accessories) and power savings while still pumping out up to 550MB/s read and 520MB/s write performance. Read on to see how it performs!"

Hard Lesson Learned With Late-2013 Apple Products Containing Lesser Performing 128GB SSDs
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 12:58P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The practice of using unbranded peripherals in computers is a common one, and even more so in the case of Apple, who takes it a step further by demanding that components such as the SSDs are proprietary through small the reassignment of circuitry within the SSD. Not only can the SSD in Apples new Mac products not be upgraded with third-party SSDs, but also, they cant even be switched off with SSDs of previous Apple releases. Simply, the high-capacity SSD of your 2012 Apple MBA will not work in your 2013 MBA."
