Western Digital Black² 120GB+1TB review: combined SSD and HDD
     Tue, Dec 24 2013 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Western Digital Black² combines a relatively slow SSD with a mainstream HDD, but it's a unique and brilliant combination that's definitely more than the sum of its parts. The Black² is the perfect solution for when you only have one available storage slot but need both fast storage and a lot of it. This is the first time you can have both in a single slot, and is therefore a great storage solution for notebooks.

VisionTek Data Fusion PCIe SSD Review (480GB)
     Mon, Dec 23 2013 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Marketing of PCI Express SSDs has always been somewhat tricky as the fine balance between performance and value wasn’t much of a balance at all; performance being the obvious strongpoint of these cards. The difficulty in manufacturing a consumer directed PCIe SSD, that can promise value, has most likely been the reason all haven’t jumped aboard the ‘PCI Express’. VisionTek saw this opportunity and have come up with the Data Fusion PCIe SSD, a PCIe card that they believe is the perfect balance of both speed and pricing. A quick look at VisionTek Data Fusion PCIe SSD prices definitely opened our eyes.

Western Digital Red (WD40EFRX) 4 TB NAS Hard Disk Drive Review.
     Sun, Dec 22 2013 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The popularity of Network-Attached Storage (NAS) devices is rapidly ramping up in both small businesses and homes, fueled by their usefulness and their increasing affordability. This surge in interest has led Western Digital to add a new family of hard disk drives - the WD Red family of NAS hard disk drives, even as Seagate drops production of 5,400 RPM desktop hard disk drives. Today, we are going to take a look at the latest addition to Western Digital's family of Red drives - the WD40EFRX with 4 TB of storage capacity. Here are its key features :

OCZ Vector 150 240GB
     Sun, Dec 22 2013 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the Vector 150 is an updated version of the Vector, offering the latest MLC NAND flash memory which provides improved endurance along with lasting performance. The series has also been made more secure with 256-bit AES data encryption. Right now the suggested retail pricing for this new series seems to be its only downfall.

They routinely produce innovative products and this October ADATA released the DashDrive Elite SE720 external solid state drive, which is not only innovative, but stunning! The DashDrive is sleek, practically weightless, and has the performance potential to embarrass an external hard disk drive!

ASUSTOR AS-608T NAS Server @ NikKTech
     Sat, Dec 21 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With most people out in the market looking to find a cost-effective NAS server for home/office use (media playback, downloading and IP surveilance are the three primary reasons most people want them for) we naturally tend to do our best to get entry/mid-end solutions on our test bench mostly. However from time to time we also have to cater to the needs of the more demanding consumers and enterprise users who are after high-end models packing enough punch and features for a variety of heavy uses. ASUSTOR may just be around for roughly 2 years but through their very good products so far they've made it quite clear that they are here to stay so it was just a matter of time before people started to ask from us to test their top NAS Servers. Well we obviously listened and so today we will be taking a very thorough look on their latest 8-bay NAS

WD Black² Dual Drive
     Thu, Dec 19 2013 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That said, when compared to any 2.5” HDD the SSD performance of the Black² is so much faster there is no comparing the two, so in a sense job done. If only the Black² came with a more potent controller than the pokey JMicron 667H we would have been really blown away by this product.

Western Digital Black2 Hybrid Hard Drive Review
     Tue, Dec 17 2013 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Black2 crams both solid state and disk drive technologies into one drive, and does so in the simplest of ways. Similar to what desktop users have been doing for years, the Black2 makes the flash portion a primary boot drive with the disk serving as bulk storage. The difference is that the Black2 only uses a single slot.

Synology DS114 and DS214 review: two very different NAS
     Mon, Dec 16 2013 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DS114 is a fast entry-level NAS with room for one disk, and the Disk Station Manager (DSM 4.3) firmware is very versatile and comprehensive. We would still consider spending a little more for a two-disk model such as the DS214, because then you have the option of using a safe RAID 1 mirrored storage solution.

Western Digital Caviar Black V2 4TB (WD4003FZEX) review:
     Mon, Dec 16 2013 | 3:45P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
http://us.hardware.info/reviews/5020/western-digital-caviar-black-v2-4tb-wd4003fzex-review-faster-black-hard-drive In late October, Western Digital released a new version of its Caviar Black Edition hard disks. WD calls the new ones 'Caviar Black' like the original series, but promises better performance compared to the first version. We tested the 4TB model.

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.
