Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD Review @ OCIA.net
     Sat, Sep 14 2013 | 3:41P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?As most PC enthusiasts know, the right choice of storage media - particularly for the operating system - can make or break the entire build. Earlier this year we reviewed the Vector and Vertex 3.20, two of OCZ`s latest SSD offerings and judging by the Kingston data sheet their HyperX 3K looks to bring an equal challenge to the table. Touting 555MB/s sequential reads and 510MB/s writes, the HyperX 3K 240GB SSD offers impressive performance courtesy of the Sandforce 2 controller... all with a three year warranty.?"

KingSpec 1TB PCIe SSD Capable of 2.5GB/s Speeds & Simple Plug and Play Worlds First Look
     Thu, Sep 12 2013 | 6:46P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So our friends at KingSpec held true to their offer and we just received a brand new KingSpec PCIe SSD from the courier. This SSD is so new that there arent even data sheets available and you wont find this on the KingSpec site just yet. Availability to distributors only occurred a few days ago. Specs for the MC2J677M1T list it at 2GB/s read and write transfer speeds with 84K IOPS. It will be available in 1 and 2TB capacities and its valued in the 2-3K range. On first installation (which occurred within seconds of the handoff), it booted right up to its own drive, verifying that it is simple plug and play. Thank you LSI!"

Micron P420m 1.4TB PCIe SSD Review
     Tue, Sep 10 2013 | 1:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Micron P420m, announced earlier this summer, is a half-height, half-length (HHHL) PCIe storage device that augments Microns PCIe enterprise storage line. The P420m has a lot to live up to. If you remember back to last October, we reviewed the Micron P320h and came away thoroughly impressed. Massive amounts of speed, endurance and parallelism were at our disposal. With the P420m, Micron is at it again, but this time they brought MLC NAND to the table instead of the bulletproof SLC NAND they used in the P320h."

Western Digital Se 4TB Review @ TechwareLabs.com
     Tue, Sep 10 2013 | 6:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital is continually trying to identify gaps in the market and tailor a solution that fills those gaps by providing drives that deliver the performance and features that are attractive to that market segment. With the recent release of their new Se series of drives, Western digital is bridging the gap between their enterprise Re series and their NAS WD Red series. Essentially, the new Se series is a low end Enterprise drive that provides similar performance of an Re drive with a lower cost per gigabyte (due to it`s lower workload rating). On paper, this is a perfect solution SOHO/SMB that are looking for higher reliability and performance over desktop drives, but without the enterprise cost that generally comes with the jump from desktop to enterprise class drives."

External Storage Roundup: LaCie, Toshiba, and WD
     Mon, Sep 09 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You have to appreciate a good external hard drive that faithfully ferries important data from one place to another, while safely stashed on a drive that's wrapped inside a slick-looking, durable chassis. These days, the storage capacity on a typical and relatively inexpensive external hard drive is large; 1TB is a standard size, and it isn't at all uncommon to see 2TB drives, too. We looked at a few external hard drives from Toshiba, WD, and LaCie, all with similar specs to see how they stacked up against one another. All three of the units in our test bank employ a speedy USB 3.0 interface with capacities that range from 750GB to 1TB in size and, as it happens, all three are compact and highly portable...

Plextor M5M 128GB mSATA SSD Review @ Legit Reviews

While we haven`t had a ton of mSATA drives come across our desk, the ones that have are pretty much the best you can buy right now. The M5M did an admirable job on all of our tests with performance numbers that were tops in the charts in many instances which was frankly a bit of a surprise given the competition..."

Toshiba Nearline MG03ACA400 4TB SATA III HDD
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 6:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although 5TB hard disk drives should be upon us by now with 6TB ones following closely behind them it seems that manufacturers feel that 4TB is still more than just enough for the majority of consumers and even though they are probably right (judging by all the people i know) Ive said it many times and will say it many more than until 10TB drives (or more) make their appearance in the market enthusiasts and professionals alike will not be completely satisfied (when you have 20-30TB of data it`s neither easy nor convenient to have twice as many drives around just for backup purposes). Still it`s not like we have any other choice so at least we can do our best to follow the flow of things and test as many 4TB hard disk drives as we can get our hands on so all of you can know what to expect. Such is the latest Nearline MG03ACA400 SATA III HDD model by Toshiba which we have on our test bench today."

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.
