     Tue, Mar 18 2014 | 3:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink

Western Digital My Cloud EX2 - Redundant Cloud Storage on a Smaller Scale
     Fri, Mar 14 2014 | 10:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Western Digital EX2 fills an important gap in home network storage devices. RAID adds much needed redundancy, and Western Digital`s My Cloud suite lets you get to that redundantly stored data from just about anywhere - even away from home. Speeds were noted to be very good, as the EX2 turned in read speeds exceeding 100 MB/sec over the local network. There were a few quirks in write speeds to USB connected devices, but NAS devices always seem to be picky about writing to externally connected media. Overall, the Western Digital EX2 was impressive, packing a lot of functionality and storage into a neat and tidy package."

WD My Cloud EX2 2-Bay Personal Cloud NAS Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Mar 13 2014 | 10:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
WD`s Personal Cloud Storage devices aimed at home network-attached storage (NAS) users has been steadily growing since the My Cloud was first announced in October 2013. WD followed that up with a 4-Bay model called the My Cloud EX4 in November 2013 for those that were looking for data redundancy and more storage capacity. The one obvious product that was missing was a 2-bay product, but that all changed with the announcement of the My Cloud EX2 today. The My Cloud EX2 is WD`s answer to those looking for a fully featured 2-bay NAS device. The My Cloud EX2 uses the same firmware and user interface as the other My Cloud products, but utilizes a different hardware platform."

ToughArmor 6x2.5 SATA HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Mar 12 2014 | 6:27P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`re like me you like to back up files, install every game in your Steam library just because and record your favorite TV shows to your hard drive to enjoy them on your own time. This unfortunately takes up a lot of space and more often than not means you need more and more hard drives to sate your unhealthy obsession with storage but what happens when you run out of space to put your drives or even worse, your media PC is in a small mATX case? Icy Dock looks to come to the data hogs rescue with their ToughArmor 6x2.5 SATA HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack which promises to give us a place to put 6 2.5 drives in a single 5.25 external bay. We`ll find out if this increase in storage is worth your time."

     Tue, Mar 11 2014 | 5:50A | Hard Drives | PermaLink

Taking a closer look at Samsung`s lineup of 840 Evo solid state drives shows, there are not only 2.5 inch models but also mSATA cards with up to 1 Terabyte capacity. Today we`re having a closer look at the 250 Gigabyte mSATA model and we`re rather curious to find out what this piece of hardware is capable of."

SSD Endurance Diary with OCZ Vector 256 GB @ ocaholic
     Mon, Mar 10 2014 | 10:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Meanwhile most enthusiasts have an SSD in their PC and since manufacturers are successfully conquering the mass maket with SSDs, these new, quick drives are nowadays widely spread. In the past there were quite a few drives that died an all sudden death. Even today customers are not sure for how long their SSD will last and especially the P/E-cylce count (program/erase cycles) is something that worries quite a few well informed users. In this diary we`re going to check what it takes to use up all P/E-cycles an OCZ Vector SSD has to offer, that features 256 Gigabyte capacity. So what is your guess, how long is it going to take until the drive refuses to work."

Intel 730 240GB Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Mar 10 2014 | 5:56A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel 520 we reviewed impressed us throughout and while it wasn`t perfect, it would certainly have been high on our shopping list. Today we see an evolution of that SSD with the new and hopefully improved Intel 730. This time around we are testing the smaller 240GB version but again Intel do offer this SSD in the larger 480GB capacity. There is a key difference other than the size of the storage between the two drives which we will discuss later in the review but it, rather than the capacity could very well be the deciding factor of which drive you choose to purchase."

Mach Xtreme DIY 16GB SATA DOM
     Sun, Mar 09 2014 | 8:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although we`ve been trying to focus on bringing some of the latest HDDs, SSDs and USB Flash Drives to hit the market over at NikKTech for testing you might have noticed that we haven`t done so with mSATA drives mainly because hardly anyone has asked for such reviews and since we feel we need to test (at least primarily) whatever our readers ask SSDs and HDDs with USB Flash Drives following closely are the things we try most to acquire. However recently some of you asked our opinion about the somewhat new SATA DOM (Disk On Module) drives which are used both in tiny systems and some NAS models (other devices feature such connectors as well) either as boot drives just for the needs of the OS or as storage media for the firmware. Well not many manufacturers make such devices currently and the majority of the ones that do are currently offering them just to system integrators and NAS manufacturers so they are not really available in the market for consumers so the moment Mach Xtreme announced that they are launching their own DIY SATA DOM product line we wasted no time in asking for one to see how it does.

Toshiba 1TB (MQ01ABD100H) 2.5 SSHD Review @ Madshrimps
     Sun, Mar 09 2014 | 10:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink

We could refer to the MQ01ABD100H 1TB hybrid from Toshiba as a 5400RPM drive on steroids, which offers 8GB NAND caching capabilities and offers a boost for data which is frequently "
