ADATA DashDrive Elite 500GB HE720 External Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Feb 08 2013 | 12:26P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ADATA DashDrive Elite HE720 500GB external hard drive was found to have solid performance, but you can quickly figure out that this drive isn`t about performance, it is about the form factor. ADATA wanted to create the thinnest external hard drive in the world and at 8.9mm, they were able to do just that with the HE720. The WD My Passport Edge 500GB hard drive is 12.8mm thick, which makes it nearly 44% thicker than the ADATA HE720..."

Toshiba THNSNF512GCSS 512GB SSD Review
     Fri, Feb 08 2013 | 9:22A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All Solid State Drives are not created equal because not everyone wants one for the same purpose/use. That`s what a good friend of mine in the SSD industry told me a couple of years back and to date he has yet to be proven wrong by anyone including myself. Of course the same reasoning applies for pretty much everything in life from coffee makers, smartphones, computer peripherals and TV screens up to cars and entire houses so although not something new it is what it is. Now just over a week ago we tested the latest SSD model by Kingston the SSDNow V300 which carried Toshiba`s brand new 19nm toggle NAND Flash Modules. As it is quite natural however Toshiba had already announced their own SSD featuring the same 19nm toggle NAND Flash Modules back in early summer and today we will be taking a look at the 512GB variant the THNSNF512GCSS."

ADATA DashDrive Elite HE720 External Drive @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Feb 07 2013 | 9:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Adata DashDrive Elite HE720 promises a sleek and light weight method of moving hundreds of gigabytes of data from point A to point B. Imagine showing up at your friends` door with four seasons of their favorite TV show in your pocket. Although USB memory devices currently offer the lightest and smallest way to move data, the cost per gigabyte becomes quite high as capacity increases. In this article, Benchmark Reviews looks at the features and performance for the lightweight, portable and overall good-looking ADATA DashDrive Elite HE720 USB 3.0 External Hard Drive."

Intel SSD 525 Series Full Capacity Roundup - Intel Sweeps mSATA
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 1:43P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s good to see Intel keep pushing the mSATA form factor with their new 525 Series. These tiny drives should offer a solid performance upgrade to any of the growing list of mSATA-equipped devices, such as high end motherboards, ultrabooks, home theater front-ends, and even some embedded systems. The SandForce controller performed as expected and did quite well considering it was limited to four flash packages, with the higher capacities nearly matching Intel`s desktop-class SSD 520. If you have an mSATA-equipped device that is struggling on storage speed, the SSD 525 is an obvious upgrade."

G-Technology G-DRIVE 4TB Professional High Performance External HDD Review
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I think we can all agree to the fact that storage capacity needs increase every day especially as long as people get faster internet connections allowing them to download huge chunks of data from the Internet in surprisingly small periods of time. Luckily all the leading HDD manufacturers have released several 4TB hard disk drive models during the last year including mainstream models targeted towards casual users and gamers, high end models aimed at enthusiasts and of course enterprise class models for professionals. Unfortunately although we have that variety in standalone internal hard disk drives the same doesnt apply in external hard disk drives since for that purpose most manufacturers choose to use their mainstream models to keep the cost down. G-Technology by HGST (Former Hitachi GST) is amongst the very few companies that not only uses the high end and enterprise class models HGST has to offer but they also use some of the highest quality and performance external HDD enclosures we`ve seen to date and the latest USB 3.0 compatible version of the G-DRIVE is no exception."

Icy Dock FlexCage MB973SP-B and MB974SP-B SATA Review Update @ Hi Tech Legion

Posted by: STAFF
The FlexCage MB97 series backplane cages feature tray-less mounting for 3.5 drives and offer full SATA 6 Gbps speeds. An additional USB 2.0 and eSATA connector is located on the front panel of the FlexCage modules as well as fan control options for the rear 80mm fan. The FlexCage MB973SP-B and MB974SP-B have front indicator LEDs for drive functionality and utilize a multi-lock design to prevent accidental ejection from the hot-swap bays. "

Silicon Power Armor A15 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Tue, Feb 05 2013 | 1:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No matter how much advancement in technology we see through the years one thing continues to stay unaltered and that`s the continuously growing storage demands/needs for most enthusiasts and professionals. Personally for backup purposes only i use quite a few Terabytes and i know many others who use even more so i really hope that the 5TB HDD models will get released sooner rather than later (Q1 2013 is the projected date after all). Now as you all know lately we`ve been focusing most of our efforts into testing all the latest storage related devices to hit the market from internal devices such as SSDs and HDDs up to portable devices including USB flash drives and 3.5/2.5 external HDDs. Still the market is huge, new models get released almost on a daily basis and so today in our hands we have yet another such device the Armor A15 1TB USB 3.0 2.5 portable hard drive from Silicon Power."

Posted by: STAFF
The Mushkin Chronos 240 GB comes at an amazing price of just $165, which makes it one of the most affordable drives out there if you want to get going with SSDs. But does such a value oriented SSD offer the performance you need?"

Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB Solid State Drive Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 12:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB solid state drive covered in this review has a respectable capacity of 120GB. Although marketed as a notebook bundle kit, this SSD will perform just the same in either a desktop or notebook environment. Overall, the V300 exceeded its advertised compressible sequential read and write rating of 450MB/s."

Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme SSD Review (256GB)
     Sat, Feb 02 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems that our relationship with Plextor has had a shot of Adrenaline since our meet at CES Las Vegas 2013 and ‘first up’ analysis of the new Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme SSD is the result. We did have a bit of a heads up when Plextor asked us to review the M5 Pro in this meeting, but definitely never expected the M5 Pro to arrive at our office, even before us, and not two weeks before this Xtreme we just finished testing! The Pro and the Extreme should be virtually identical, considering both contain the same controller, the same cache, same firmware and even 19nm NAND flash memory. The difference is that the Xtreme contains 16 modules of NAND flash memory vice the 8 of our M5 Pro review, the Xtreme also promising IOPS of 100,ooo. But wait…. didn’t we get that from the M5 Pro as well?

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
