OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB PCIe SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jun 16 2014 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ Storage Solutions was the first to venture into the PCIe SSD drives for consumer machines back in mid 2010 and the last one we saw was a hybrid version from late 2011. Not many other companies were keen on putting out PCIe drives for consumer applications and back then, most if any, drives were hitting the SATA III threshold. However, as the SATA III bandwidth continues to be a limiting factor for a growing number of drives and the next generation SATA interface still out a ways on the horizon, it?s a good time to leverage the ample bandwidth PCIe brings. So, OCZ has forged ahead with the RevoDrive series and sent over the shiny new RevoDrive 350 480GB drive for us to bang on for a bit and as always, we were duly impressed..."

Plextor M6M 256GB mSATA SSD Full Review - Mini Marvell
     Sun, Jun 15 2014 | 3:56A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I was pleasantly surprised by the overall performance of the Plextor M6M. The Marvell controller does very well when coupled with Toshiba flash memory, and does not seem to suffer any penalties when linked to only four flash packages in the smaller mSATA form factor. Pricing is still a bit unstable as these have not been on the market for long, but if you can find one at a competitive cost/GB, it will be a great option for those needing an mSATA SSD."

Intel SSD DC P3700 800GB Review - Ludicrous Speed for the Masses!
     Fri, Jun 13 2014 | 4:55P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The speed advantages of the NVMe interface are now indelibly clear, especially as demonstrated by Intel`s new fire breathing Data Center product lines. This new interface removes many of the bottlenecks associated with SATA and AHCI, bringing the flash much closer to the CPU, both physically and logically. The end results are impressive to say the least, with Intel`s 18-channel controller turning in figures close to 3GB/sec and 4k random IO pushing half a million IOPS."

OCZ Vertex 460 240GB SATA 3 SSD - BCCHardware
     Fri, Jun 13 2014 | 3:56A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While testing this SSD drive I have come to conclusion that it is an all-around good drive. It performed well on most of the tests. I am not disappointed with the fact that some of OCZs claims werent reached in this test system, but they arent that far off either. I would most likely add one of OCZs drives to my machine in the future. I personally like the 240GB size as it allows for a little bit extra room after the operating system is installed."

One of the most exciting new features of the Intel H97 and Z97 chipsets is the increased data transfer speeds available for storage drives. So, you want to toss your SATA III SSD into the trash right now and go out and purchase a board and M.2 PCIe SSD right?

Samsung 845DC EVO Review (960GB) Great Read Performance Low Prices
     Tue, Jun 10 2014 | 10:54A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 845DC EVO comes in 3 capacities: 240, 480 and 960GB. We are primarily looking at the 960 version today. Regardless of the capacity, the 845DC specifies some blistering read performance. 87K IOPS is a huge number that puts Samsung at the top of almost every enterprise SSD list. Samsung did fix one of the wrongs of the SM843, which was the lack of power-loss protection. The 845DC should have a level of protection during power loss that SM843 lacked."

Super Talent RAIDDrive II Plus PCIe SSD Review SSD Modules Connect Via USB 3.0 Ingenious
     Mon, Jun 09 2014 | 4:26P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The current PCIe add-in-card storage market is separated into two general architectures. The first is ground-up, native PCIe designs, such as the Micron P320h. These devices eschew a typical SATA/SAS controller in favor of specialized flash controllers that have native PCIe interfaces. This is where the market is heading. In fact, later this year, you should start to see many more devices that are NVMe-based. But, we will save that discussion for a later time. The second type of PCIe add-in-card storage takes more of a brute force approach. These devices typically have off-the-shelf SATA/SAS controllers and connect via a PCIe bridge. Think of a HBA/RAID card connected to a SATA SSD, but on a single card. These designs have many advantages and disadvantages. While the cost and time-to-market can be low, they are inherently limited due to the architecture."

Edge Boost Server 7mm SSD Review
     Mon, Jun 09 2014 | 8:35A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Geared toward servers and data centers, the Edge Boost Server 7mm SSD utilizes an enterprise-level LSI-SandForce controller to achieve strong read/write and IOPS speeds. The SATA 6 Gb/s interface is rated to achieve up to 560 MB/s sequential reads and 530 MB/s sequential writes (240GB model other capacities vary). Random 4K read speeds are stated as 45,000 IOPS, with random 4K write speeds of 80,000 IOPS (240GB model other capacities vary)."

Intel 730 Jackson Ridge Raid 0 Review @ Vortez
     Sun, Jun 08 2014 | 4:55P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we first reviewed the Intel 730 SSD we had mixed feelings. While read speeds were certainly good, write performance was below par for a drive of this calibre. Intel were keen to push the benefits of setting these drives up into a striped volume (Raid 0), indeed their own comparison showed the Raid 0 volume compares favourably with a single 480GB drive."

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.
