Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD 500GB
     Wed, Aug 21 2013 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few days ago we reviewed the first serious attempt by Seagate to enter the consumer SSD market with their 600 SSD model which was surprisingly good for a first attempt especially since together they also launched two extra SSD models the 600 Pro SSD and 1200 SSD both of which are considered as enterprise-class solutions. However in order to cover pretty much every user out there Seagate did not stop there and so they also released their 3rd Generation of 2.5" Hybrid drives they like to refer to as SSHD (Solid State Hybrid Drives) which much like their Momentus XT predecessor are mostly aimed towards laptop owners who want to have the best of both worlds meaning the low cost and high capacity ratio of HDDs coupled with the superior performance of SSDs. Currently Seagate has two SSHD models in the market the 1TB Laptop SSHD and the 500GB Laptop Thin SSHD which we have on our test bench today.

Western Digital’s 1TB Velociraptor
     Sat, Aug 17 2013 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In the past couple years, Intel has said that SSDs will inevitably replace platter based hard drives. Unfortunately, limited quantities of expensive NAND and controllers are one aspect preventing that from happening. The second obstacle is that SSDs just aren’t available in large enough capacities to satisfy consumers. The only way that Intel prediction comes to fruition is if Intel takes the lead by pushing costs down and capacities up. While the SSD industry continues to trudge at a snail’s pace, 1TB and 2TB hard drives remain the popular consumer choice for both amount of storage and performance. Today, we’re looking at two of the fastest from Western Digital: The 1TB Velociraptor and the 2TB Caviar Black."

SanDisk Extreme II SSD 240GB Review
     Sat, Aug 17 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new SanDisk Extreme II features an in-house developed firmware which helps to set it apart from other SSDs using the same controller. Also of note, the second generation Extreme series has dumped the SandForce controller in favor of the new Marvell 88SS9187, the same controller used by the Crucial M500. SanDisk is pricing the 240GB Extreme II competitively fetching around $230, right on target with the Vertex 450 and also in the neighborhood of the Samsung 840 Pro, which will remain a secondary focus throughout this review.

Seagate 600 Pro 400GB RAID 0 (2) Drive Array SSD Review @ RWLabs
     Wed, Aug 14 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 600 Pro 400GB is currently retailing for about $1.55 per GB which is actually dirt cheap for a drive with this kind of feature set, endurance rating and performance. $1200 is a lot of money to spend on an array but we know that many enthusiasts will gladly spend that kind of money if the quality warrants it.
