OCZ Vertex 460 SSD Review (240GB) Enterprise Performance With an Amazing Price
     Mon, Feb 10 2014 | 12:28P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Only hours after the OCZ Storage Solutions has been announced as the newest member of the Toshiba Group Company, , OCZ is releasing a brand new 460 Series SSD, relying on new partnerships and Toshiba NAND flash memory. If anything, the OCZ story is sure to make an interesting novel one day but, the release of this SSD shows us that the OCZ team has become very good at staying on the right track and deflecting what some might consider serious diversions. Their possession of what might be one of the worlds top SSD controllers, the Barefoot 3, might have a great deal to do with that."

ASRock Z87 Extreme11/ac Motherboard SSD Storage Overview
     Mon, Feb 10 2014 | 10:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its no secret that SSDs have been a major force in tech advance and the force in which theyve impacted could never be covered in a single report. Eyeing the enthusiast or home user alone, SSDs are now a main staple of any PC build. They enable quicker PC start times, increase system performance and reduce scene transition times when gaming. Add to that characteristics such as less heat, less noise, better data protection as well as better battery life for laptop and ultra users.Motherboard manufacturers have been relatively slow to adapt, and their reasoning that SSD progression just hasnt slowed enough yet to grab hold, is valid. In just a few years we have seen consumer SSDs progress from the 3.5 desktop standard, to notebook, mSATA, PCIe and now we are about to experience the smallest form factor yet with the newest M.2 standard. Quite frankly, motherboard manufacturers find that just as they have been able to successfully incorporate one standard, the next appears. The fact that we were formerly limited to two Intel ports for full 500+ MB/s SSD performance didnt help."

Posted by: STAFF
Today OCZ are refreshing their Vertex series drives, bringing in the Vertex 460.

Today we compare it to a range of other solutions all vying for SSD upgraders and newbies."

Kingston SSDNow KC300 240GB SSD Upgrade Kit
     Sun, Feb 09 2014 | 8:31A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2014 is finally here people and just like one of my friends says each year is a brand new 365 paged book so make sure you all write each page the best way you can. 2014 is a particularly special year since there are many things for us to look forward including the new X99 chipset based mainboards by Intel (finally something to replace our X79 system although we will keep it as well to continue with some of our databases) which will also use the brand new DDR4 RAM, new SSD/HDD hybrid models with large capacity NAND flash, new HDDs with at least 6TB capacities and of course new SSD NAND flash controllers. CES may just be 4 days away but some prototypes may actually make it there in time (if not we will probably see them in this years CeBIT) so if you live near Las Vegas i strongly recommend attending if you`d like a first row seat on everything new to come in 2014.

OCZ Vertex 460 240GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Feb 08 2014 | 12:28P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Legit Reviews is checking out the new OCZ Storage Solutions Vertex 460 SSD today! We received a 240GB version this time around for evaluation which is pretty much the typical size of a review sample anymore. The Vertex 460 carries the same Barefoot 3 M10 controller we saw in the Vertex 450 and is now paired with 19nm Toshiba MLC NAND. The performance specifications are impressive for what is essentially an entry-level ?performance? drive with reads hitting 545MB/s max and 525MB/s writes max. Read on to see how it performs!"

Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC) D54250WYKH - H is for 2.5 HDD Mount Review @MissingRemote
     Sat, Feb 08 2014 | 10:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel brought out their Haswell Next Unit of Computing (NUC), inclusion of features like SATA made it clear that they had bigger things in store for the little system. They were honest that some of this promise will require 3rd party case OEMs to fully realize, but Intel quickly announced that they would be creating their own chassis with 2.5 drive support a bit later. Providing this feature is interesting to two groups of users: those who have, or want to leverage a 2.5 SSD instead of mSATA or anyone who wants local, rotating, storage in the NUC. As it happens, now is the time, and when I sat down with Intel at CES to talk NUC they had one of the new 116.6mm x 112mm x 51.5mm enclosures for me to take back and run through the paces. *"

Angelbird SSD2Go Pro Mobile SSD Review (640GB)
     Sat, Feb 08 2014 | 9:56A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a bit of a personal example, we reviewed the Angelbird SSD2Go USB 3.0 External SSD last June and that SSD has since been around the world and back, and then some. Wherever my camera equipment goes, it goes. The first gen Angelbird SSD2Go wreaks of performance, great capacity, an amazing look and a build that is matched by very few products in the world today, as can be seen by the above shots. Having the newest Angelbird Pro SSD 2 Go in hand, we have to wonder if Angelbird can match their release of the SSD2Go. By specs alone, their seems to be enough change to make a step in that direction in any case."

OCZ Vertex 460 240GB SSD Full Review - Now with Toshiba 19nm flash
     Thu, Feb 06 2014 | 12:28P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back when we reviewed the Vertex 450, I was happy to see OCZ`s cost/GB finally coming down to expected levels. Despite this, the Vertex 450 didn`t seem to take off. This may have been due to buyers shying away from a company on the verge of bankruptcy. With OCZ now backed by Toshiba, and armed with their flash memory, OCZ is able to solidify their future as well as introduce models at an even lower cost/GB. The Vertex 460 performed well in our testing and is launching at a very competitive cost, and that`s exactly what is needed to gain back the trust of the community as well as the market share they once enjoyed."

Thecus N2310 NAS Server
     Thu, Feb 06 2014 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the end of the day the Thecus N2310 is a pretty solid product. What it lacks in a clean web interface it makes up for in value, performance and features. It has almost as many features as other units costing twice as much and matches performance with other mainstream two-bay NAS units. To sweeten the deal, Thecus has a growing selection of mobile applications that add to the flexibility of the N2310.

OCZ Vertex 460 SSD Review (240GB)
     Thu, Feb 06 2014 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ Vertex 460 SSD is the newest OCZ drive to be released, and is great way to start off 2014. OCZ has specified that the Vertex 460 can have sequential read speeds up to 545MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 525MB/s. The OCZ Vertex 460 should be available in storage capacities of 120, 240, and 480GB, with the MSRP looking to be $99.99, $189.99 and $359.99 respectively. This turns out to be a very low price for a solid state drive, costing approximately $0.75 per GB.

KingSpec SATA M.2 NGFF Ultrabook SSD Review (128GB)
     Thu, Feb 06 2014 | 8:31A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The KingSpec CHA-M2B7 M.2 NGFF ultrabook SSD is available in capacities of 32, 64 an 128GB and is a 42mm(L) X 22mm(W)X3.2mm(H) SATA M.2 SSD. To say it is small is an understatement as we can fit four of these on a typical business card with plenty of room to spare."
