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..."

Posted by: STAFF
Under the spotlight today is something quite special. Back in October of last year Synology released the DS213air; a 2-bay NAS incorporating WiFi technology. A first for the company and one that will be certain to entice the storage cohorts."

     Sat, Mar 02 2013 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We examine a pair of external storage options from Icy Dock. The Blizzard is an oddly shaped, actively cooled HDD enclosure with some nifty extra features, while the EZ-Dock is a conventional but sleek looking docking station.

Western Digital Red Hard Disk Drives for Network
     Fri, Mar 01 2013 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are particularly interested in WD Red hard disk drive series due to its unique positioning for entry-level and mainstream network attached storage devices. Therefore, we decided to check how well the WD Red drives will do in this environment and if they will really outperform the popular WD Green and WD RE4-GP.

Thecus Top Tower N8850 review: a powerful eight-disk NAS device
     Thu, Feb 28 2013 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thecus Top Tower N8850 is definitely an impressive NAS device, both in terms of design and performance. The firmware perhaps has some rough edges, but it's complete enough. It makes the Thecus Top Tower N8850 an interesting option if you want high performance and don't mind that it makes a little noise. It's great that you can upgrade the N8850 by adding a 10 Gigabit adapter or increasing the amount of RAM.

REVIEW Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate G3 64GB @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Feb 28 2013 | 7:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate G3 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive is the third generation in the company?s lineup, packing 64GB of capacity onto a form factor that can fit onto your key ring. But what about performance? Around here, we think Performance is King, and we?ve heard people complain these large capacity flash drives are slow as molasses in a northern Canadian winter (that?s cold, trust me). Just how fast is this G3 flash drive? Let?s move on to find out.?"

ADATA HV610 1TB USB3.0 HDD - BCCHardware
     Tue, Feb 26 2013 | 9:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is one of the USB 3.0 entry-level drives from ADATA and it promises high-end performance at an entry-level price. This drive can be found online for ~$90 and at that price, it`s not the cheapest 1TB 2.5 drive on the market, but it is still a decent price. . ."

Micron RealSSD P400m Enterprise SSD Review
     Mon, Feb 25 2013 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Micron is announcing a brand new, enterprise-class solid state drive today, the RealSSD P400m. We have a looked at a number of Micron-built solid state drives in the past, including the ultra high-end RealSSD P320h PCI Express-based beast and the consumer-targeted RealSSD C300, but what makes the P400m somewhat different is that it was designed from start to finish by Micron’s NAND and SSD engineering teams to provide high endurance and reliability and superior data protection. That’s not to say Micron’s previous products lacked in those departments, but the P400m goes a few steps further with custom NAND and firmware and physical power loss protection designed for mainstream enterprise applications...

Samsung 840 Series SSD Review:
     Mon, Feb 25 2013 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung has roughly a trillion or so different products in virtually every market of the computing world, but one area where the company can occasionally be overlooked is in consumer storage. Samsung SSDs are plentiful, though, most notably inside of Apple’s MacBooks, and unlike many SSDs out there, they’re built entirely with Samsung-made components, from the controller to the Flash NAND and DRAM cache. In fact, Samsung is one of the largest Flash memory suppliers in the world. In any case, the latest generation of Samsung SSDs is the 840 and 840 Pro Series, and we took the 250GB version of the 840 SSD for a spin. Not literally, of course, because these aren’t HDDs. (Nerd joke.)

In the enthusiast SSD market two products stand taller than the rest - the OCZ Vector and Samsung`s 840 Pro. Today we`re looking at the 256GB capacity size. Two drives enter, one drive leaves the champion."

ADATA DashDrive Air AE400 Wireless Storage Reader Review @ Custom PC Review
     Sun, Feb 24 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we’ll be reviewing the recently introduced ADATA DashDrive Air AE400, which ADATA describes as a “wireless storage reader and power bank”. Unlike most of the wireless storage devices on the market, the ADATA AE400 doesn’t include any sort of internal storage and relies solely on either external USB drives or SD cards for storage instead..."

If you are the type to roll your own NAS, then you will most likely have looked at various operating systems to complete the package. There are a ton of them out there, but if you are looking for a smooth install with your brand new RocketRaid 2720 controller, look no further than Nas4Free.

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.
