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.
     Sat, Dec 08 2012 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
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."

In this review PCSTATS will be testing the 256GB Crucial M4 SSD, a 6Gb/s SATA III drive rated by the manufacturer for read speeds of up to 500MB/s and write speeds of 260MB/s (sequential). Crucial's M4 SSD uses 25nm MLC NAND Flash and the same Marvell controller that Intel relies on in several of its better known solid state drives.

INEO Tripple Shot. I-NA321U+, Protection Boxes
     Tue, Dec 04 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Focusing on storage solutions (NAS, RAID, DMA, External Hard Disk Drive Enclosures and complimentary components/peripherals) ineo is in a mature, evolving and highly competitive market with no foreseeable decline. Facing such competitors as Coolmax, Rosewill and KingWin on the lower end as well as Thermaltake and Icy Dock on the higher end ineo must present quality, functionality, effectiveness, efficiency and competitive pricing. We feel that it does just that with the I-NA321U+ while offering comparable bare drive storage options with its polypropylene based protection boxes

Samsung SSD 840 / 840 Pro review: every model tested
     Tue, Dec 04 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We were very impressed by the 256 GB Samsung 840 Pro when it came out late September. It was the fastest at the time, but OCZ has caught up already with the Vector SSD. The other capacities of the 840 Pro are equally outstanding in terms of performance, all at the top of their class.

OCZ Vector 256GB SSD Review
     Mon, Dec 03 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year we reviewed OCZ's flagship Vertex 4 SSD which at the time we were lead to believe was based on a second-generation Everest controller developed in-house. Eventually it was revealed and later confirmed by OCZ that the Octane and Vertex 4 drives actually used Marvell controllers with firmware developed in-house by the Indillinx team. While we acknowledged that it was very sneaky on OCZ’s behalf, it also didn’t change things much for us. Regardless of who did or didn't make the controller, the Vertex 4 was still one of the best performers and best values in the high-end SSD segment. So with the controversy of the Vertex 4 almost behind them, OCZ is finally ready to unveil its first truly in-house SSD controller. It's been three years since Indilinx released a brand new controller and they are doing so today with the Barefoot 3, which is to be featured in OCZ’s latest SSD series known as Vector.

OCZ Vector Barefoot 3 Solid State Drive Review
     Sun, Dec 02 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ has been carpet-bombing the solid state storage market for years now. It seemed that every time a new controller technology emerged, OCZ was at the ready with a fresh batch of products and over time built a portfolio that targeted virtually every market segment. Consumer-class solid state storage is in an interesting phase right now, though. There was a time when there were only a couple of controllers on the market that allowed OEMs to produce drives capable of effectively saturating the SATA interface, while also offering strong all-around performance. That’s part of the reason everyone and their mother started producing SandForce-based drives. But now there are multiple solutions available that all have their strong suits and offer competitive performance. So how do you differentiate in market rife with strong products based on similar technologies? One way is to acquire a controller design firm and to create a product that uses all in-house technology, which is exactly what OCZ has done with the new Vector SSD we’ll be showing you here today...

OCZ Vector 256GB SSD review: with Indilinx Barefoot 3
     Sun, Dec 02 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today OCZ launched a new SSD series under the name Vector. OCZ is aiming at the high-end segment with these, more or less as a follow-up to the existing Vertex 4 series. The interesting part about the new SSD is the controller, because the Indilinx Barefoot 3 has been developed in-house by OCZ. Hardware.Info tested the Vector to find out whether it can hold its own against the other fast SSDs that recently came out.

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.
