iStarUSA BPU-340SATA Military Grade Drive Enclosure
     Wed, Jul 10 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the many benefits of full tower PC cases are the many 5.25" optical drive bays they have (5 or more) so if you happen to own one there's no doubt you will most probably look for ways to make use of them. Personally i always use at least two in each of my test rigs one to mount a fan controller (two 5.25" bays sometimes) and the other to either mount a DVD-ROM or a Blu-Ray drive. Lately however we've started testing several 5.25" hard drive cages inside which you can mount up to four 3.5/2.5" SATA/SAS drives by making use of just three 5.25" optical drive bays. A few weeks back we tested the BPN-DE340SS hot-swap storage bay adapter by iStarUSA which not only managed to keep the temperatures of the SATA III drive we used for testing at a minimum but surprisingly enough it also improved its read/write data transfer speeds. Well today on our primary test rig we have it's cousin the BPU-340SATA military grade hot-swap drive cage.

OCZ Vertex 3.20 240GB SSD Review @ HiTech Legion
     Tue, Jul 09 2013 | 11:49A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ Vertex 3.20 SSD replaces the Agility 4 in OCZ`s mainstream consumer-class SSD line. The OCZ Vertex 3.20 derives its name from the use 20nm MLC flash compared to the previous 25nm of the original. Still utilizing a SandForce 2281 controller, the OCZ Vertex 3.20 SSD comes in 120GB and 240 GB capacities with sequential read and write speeds of 550 MB/s and 520 MB/s respectively. Compared to the previous Vertex 3 SSD which had an idle power consumption of 1.65W and active power consumption of 3W, the Vertex 3.20 uses a mere 0.55W on idle and 2.1W while in use. For users concerned about reliability, the OCZ Vertex 3.20 his endurance rated for 20GB/day of host writes for 5 years under typical client workloads and has a MTBF of 2 million hours. As with the Vertex 3 SSD, the Vertex 3.20 supports TRIM (OS dependent) and features SandForce DuraWrite architecture technology which extends flash rated endurance. The OCZ Vertex 3.20 SSD is covered by a 3-year warranty including toll-free tech support and firmware updates.///"

SilverStone DS322 Compact USB 3.0 RAID Enclosure Review @ Pro-Clockers

Posted by: STAFF
This leads us to our latest review sample. We will be taking a look at SilverStone`s newest USB 3.0 RAID enclosure called the SilverStone DS322. This is a step above the typical USB enclosure as it supports two drives and not only that; the drives can be configured using the two simplest forms of RAID which would be 0 and 1."

Seagate 600 240GB SATA III 6Gbps SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jul 08 2013 | 9:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seagate is certainly one of the titans when it comes to PC storage options - both consumer and enterprise. It makes sense for them to use their considerable infrastructure to make their mark on the SSD market segment - something they`ve been slow to do. We found performance on our Seagate 600 240GB drive to be very good with the Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD) LM87800 controller handling all the heavy lifting. The specifications of 550MB/s reads and 450MB/s writes were hit without a problem and even on incompressible data, speeds were solid. IOPS performance was very good as well, exceeding the 80,000/70,000 reads/writes by a bit to place in the upper portion of the comparison list..."

OCZ Vertex 450 SSD Review: Vector-like Performance
     Thu, Jul 04 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The battle between the Vector and the Samsung SSD 840 Pro has been closely contested ever since the Indilinx-based drive arrived late last year, though when push comes to shove OCZ could be on the losing end. Meet the Vertex 450, OCZ's latest addition to the Vertex SSD series based on a slightly modified version of the Barefoot 3 controller that is designed to be more cost effective. So how does the new Vertex drive fare against the best SSDs in the market including OCZ's own?

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.
