REVIEW: Kingston V300 240GB @ PureOverclock
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 3:23P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Another in the list of SandForce SSDs is the latest from Kingston, the SSDNow V300. It?s not terribly different in most regards, but it does have Toshiba Toggle NAND and exclusive input from LSI directly to tweak the controller?s performance. Factor in a strong accessory package and a competitive price, and we have a drive that could prove very attractive to consumers looking for a massive speed boost over a traditional hard drive setup.  Let?s dive in and find out how the Kingston SSDNow V300 240GB fares.?"

Seagate Constellation ES.3 4TB Enterprise Hard Drive Review @ Techgage
     Fri, Mar 08 2013 | 7:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We took a look at both of WDs 4TB hard drive options in the past month, so its a great time to get some Seagate action going. The Constellation ES.3 competes with WDs RE in the enterprise space, but it brings an interesting feature to the table: a 128MB cache. So lets give the the drive a good test and see if it can topple the RE drive we raved over."

Toshiba STOR.E SLIM 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Wed, Mar 06 2013 | 2:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As most of you know due to the somewhat recent HDD price drops and the continuous increase in storage capacity needs lately we`ve been focusing on storage related reviews from internal HDDs (consumer and enterprise grade) and up to external HDDs (both 3.5 and 2.5). However it`s important that don`t lose sight of what`s really important and that is to cover all our readers out there with our reviews and so although we`ve tested quite a few external 2.5 drives lately most of them were large capacity ones with rugged enclosures. Still although having an external HDD with a rugged housing is never a bad thing because of their size and design it`s somewhat difficult to carry them around in your back pocket. Well luckily Toshiba has that covered with their brand new STOR.E SLIM 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive."

NEWS SSD Maker KingFast Unknowingly Sends Counterfeit SSD With Fake Memory For Review
     Tue, Mar 05 2013 | 1:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Arguably, the two most important components of an SSD are the controller and NAND flash memory. In the memory industry, manufacturers may dispose of sub-par memory on the open market where, at least in the case of SSDs, more suitable applications may be found. The potential downside to this commonplace practice is the memory has the potential to be counterfeited and sold, while often suffering performance or capacity concerns. Up until this report, we have yet to see any instances of counterfeit SSDs. This analysis provides pictures, identification and full analysis of a fake SSD, offering the consumer a tool to assist should they ever believe that their SSD ?just isn?t quite what it seems?"

Mushkin Atlas Deluxe mSATA 30GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Mar 04 2013 | 3:13P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While our performance comparison was limited to only one other drive of the same capacity, that comparison drive is probably is on top of the mSATA 30GB heap being an Intel 525 Series drive. That makes is a very nice yardstick to measure up the bantam Atlas Deluxe drive. In that regard, the Atlas measures up very well with performance numbers that are very robust for a drive of this size. The maximum performance attained is 555MB/s sequential reads and 379MB/s sequential writes. This is with compressible data and, like all SandForce drives, things change a bit when incompressible data is thrown at it. Max performance drops to 200MB/s reads and 40 MB/s writes which is on par with Intel 30GB drive as it features the same controller..."

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.
