Intel DC S3700 Data Center SSD Review (200/800GB)
     Thu, Dec 13 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months back, we randomly heard three words during a passing conversation; Intel, Taylorsville, and latency. That was it; no context, no explanation and no hints. Given that we happened to be at the Flash Memory Summit, it was a safe bet that something solid state was afoot, but at the time these were just random words to file away for later. During a phone call with Intel a few weeks later, it all made sense.

WD My Passport Edge External Hard Drive Review
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When USB flash drives first came to market it was a revolution. They offered much larger storage capacity compared to floppy disks, packaged in something about the size of a person’s thumb. Suddenly, you could just save your papers, presentations, and even a smattering of photos onto a little flash drive and safely take it with you anywhere. Times have changed, obviously, with the advent of cloud-based storage solutions like Dropbox, but portable storage on a physical device is still as necessary as ever, especially when you need a substantial amount of available capacity for backup purposes. External hard drives are the ticket here, and Western Digital has a teeny-tiny one that offers 500GB of storage in a form factor that fits in your pants pocket with relative ease…

SSD News: Kingston SSDNow V300 SSD Review - A Great Mix of Toshiba 19nm Memory and the SF-2281 FSP
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 2:08P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today`s SSD analysis takes a look at a new SSD to the market, this being the Kingston SSDNow V300 SATA 3 SSD. The V300 is a unique Kingston SSD introduction as it is their first product using the new Toshiba 19nm NAND flash memory process, but also, this SSD is `SandForce Driven by LSI` and a key example of the success that can be had when two companies work closely together. It is no secret that the established `best practice` with respect to consumer SSDs has become that of `more for less`. Getting more value, and potentially more capacity, to the consumer is key and manufacturers are finding ways to do this using memory that has a smaller overall footprint. The Kingston V300 seems to be an ideal example of this value, at least on the outside, so let`s take a closer look at where technology seems to be heading."

25 3.5-inch hard disk round-up: battle of the terabytes
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SSDs are of course the hippest and fastest form of storage, but if you want lots of storage capacity without breaking the bank, you're still relegated to the familiar realm of the hard disk. There's still some choice out there in this category, and price are slowly creeping down. Hardware.Info tested and compared 25 hard disks ranging in capacity from 250 GB to 4 TB.

Digital Black 4TB hard drive.

In the never ending quest to cram the maximum amount of storage capacity into a single drive, Western Digital's new Black Edition 4TB stands as a unique device. While other 4TB drives are already available, this is the only one which successfully combines performance and capacity with a surprisingly low price of under $350.

ADATA Premier Pro SP600 128GB SSD Review - BCCHardware
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 12:21P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Value is the big question. The overall price of the drive is not bad all by itself, but the performance for the price is a little bit lacking - at the MSRP. When you consider the software bundle, it makes it a tough call. Not everyone will need or even use the software, so for many people this value isn`t recognized. If you need software though, this becomes a great deal. With the price of the software listing around $40 - and with the drive hitting shelves for $80-$90 on a promotional price, you actually are paying $40-$50 for the drive itself. . ."

Silicon Power Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 10:27A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
VDSL (Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line) finally landed where i live and although it will take quite some time before we can all enjoy the amazing speeds it offers (although we still don`t know what the end result will be) such speeds are bound to change things especially in everything related to storage media. We are well aware that VDSL is nothing new in several parts of the world but the majority of people hardly have DSL lines currently so you can imagine how rapidly things will change when everyone on the face of the planet jumps from regular DSL 24Mbit/s speeds to the 50-100Mbit/s offered by VDSL and VDSL2. This is also one of the reasons as to why we`ve focused in testing portable hard disk drives lately (we need to be ready for the change) and today we have yet another one, the Armor A80 1TB 2.5 USB 3.0 PHD from Silicon Power."

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.
