Samsung 840 250GB SSD Review
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 4:30P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung`s 840 returns for the second day in a row. This time Chris tests TLC flash paired with a tri-core MDX controller with the 250GB model. Will he love the low power or will the 240MB/s sequential write limit send him for a cold shower?"

HGST Touro Mobile Pro 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 2:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Only 25 or so days before we go dark for our much anticipated Christmas vacations (which shouldn`t last more than 10 days in total) and so we decided to mainly focus on reviews requested by some of you during the last 2 months. Needless to say we are already testing quite a few gaming peripherals for the past 2 weeks so there isn`t really much time for anything else that requires time and effort to test, however since the primary concern of most of you have been 2.5 portable hard disk drives (much easier/faster to test) we gathered quite a few of the latest USB 3.0 models here to see which delivers the most bang for your buck. The first of those portable USB 3.0 HDDs is no other than the latest Touro Mobile Pro 500GB by HGST."

     Wed, Nov 28 2012 | 4:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To say the new OCZ Vector was a long time in the making would be an understatement as discussion over the development of this platform just might be one of the oldest SSD conversations to date.Today`s Vector release may mark the first major success story of OCZ` purchase of both Indilinx and PLX, this story born through development of their Barefoot 3 silicon and firmware. Follow along as we take a very close look at the OCZ Vector `Indilinx Infused` SSD."

A number of next-generation SSDs are coming to TweakTown this week. OCZ, Intel and Samsung and others will follow after CES. Today Chris tests Samsung`s low-cost 840 with TLC flash in the 500GB capacity size. Does TLC show the love or is this low-cost offering another low-budget blunder?"

OCZ Vector SSD review
     Wed, Nov 28 2012 | 3:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,Let us review the all new OCZ Vector series SSD. OCZ has developed this product with their all new Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller 256GB of NAND flash memory. The end result is an SSD that is extremely fast and amongst the fastest we have ever tested. OCZ submitted the Vector 256GB model with impressive specs. The 256GB models have sustained read/write levels of 550 MB/sec and 530 MB/sec respectively. And with 4K random write performance estimated at 90~100 IOPS (input/output operations per second) it`s launching with the intent to impress alright."

OCZ Vector SSD Launch Review at Hardwareheaven.com
     Wed, Nov 28 2012 | 2:25A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year we saw OCZ release the Vertex 4 and Agility 4 SSDs, a mix of Marvel and Indilinx inside they offered some impressive performance along with OCZs decent software suite and excellent support. Today sees the first product to market which combines the Indilinx and PLX teams knowhow. The Vector series of SSDs is, other than NAND flash, a 100% in house design and we will be putting it up against the best drives currently available from Samsung, Intel and OCZ themselves."

OCZ Vector 256GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Wed, Nov 28 2012 | 1:10A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the competition slowly overtaking their high-end Vertex 4, it was high time for OCZ to make introduce a revamped high end SSD lineup. That starts today with the Vector series. OCZ`s. By incorporating an in-house designed Barefoot 3 controller and fast NAND, this could be drive which puts OCZ back on the enthusiast map."

OCZ Vector 256GB SSD Full Review - Indilinx zeroes in on the competition
     Wed, Nov 28 2012 | 12:33A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ Vector astonished me with its throughput, sheer IOPS performance, and low latency. Tackling the challenges of in-house production has definitely paid off for them. Provided the price remains as low as OCZ promises, I will be recommending the Vector to many a PC builder. OCZ products are not just for the early adopters and power users any more - the Vector appears to be a clear choice for the masses to enjoy."

OCZ Vector 256GB Indilinx Barefoot 3 SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 11:56P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we`ve only had the Vector 256GB drive with the Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller for a short time, we are very impressed with what OCZ has done. While 550MB/s reads and 530MB/s writes doesn`t break new ground with a number of drives on the market that match these specifications, the trick is to hit these throughputs, or close to it, consistently. We know that the SandForce controllers really take a performance hit on incompressible data but not so with the Barefoot 3..."

OCZ Vector 256 Gigabyte @ ocaholic
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 11:19P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the Vertex 4 had been launched a few months ago, OCZ now releases their Vector drives. It is their very first consumer grade Solid State Drive which goes to market under the lead of OCZ`s new CEO - Ralph Schmidt. Furthermore OCZ say that the Vector is also their first SSD which is based on their own controller, which has been designed inhouse by their Indilinx team. We`re really curious if this drive is able to perform within the proclaimed specs. 550 MB/s sequential read, 530 MB/s sequential write and up to 100`000 IOPS, that`s quite something."

REVIEW: ADATA SP600 128GB @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 11:06P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s not always the enthusiasts (and well-heeled) that want blistering speeds, and certainly not just in the SSD arena. Anyone with an SSD can benefit from massive performance gains over a hard drive, from the most diehard to the budget-oriented consumer. So the ADATA Premier Pro SP600 targets the latter, offering an SSD that`s very accessible to users on a modest budget of about $100. But how does the performance of the ADATA Premier Pro SP600 measure up? Is it worth the investment? Let`s dive in and find out."

At last, OCZ has an SSD controller all its own. The Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller debuts in the Vector SSD, and we`ve run the drive through the wringer to see how it compares to the competition."

Patriot Gauntlet 320 External Wireless Hard Drive
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 11:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are some limitations that you might want to consider including the inability to access network-based devices when using the pass through Internet capability the Gauntlet provides. Also, data transfer performance on the wireless connectivity that the Gauntlet provides seemed pretty low, even with the 802.11n support."

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.
