Western Digital 4TB Drive Roundup @ TechwareLabs.com
     Fri, Jan 17 2014 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Are you in the market for some large storagedrives? The folks at Western Digital have sent us the latest batch of their 4TB drives, and we here at Techwarelabs thought it might be helpful to do a quick 4TB roundup of three of their top four drives to see how they stack up against each other. The three drives we will be looking at today are the Western Digital Red (WD40EFRX), Se (WD4000F9YZ), and Re (WD4000FYYZ). Although we have reviewed some of these drives individually, we thought it would be good to do a comparison review to see what real world difference is between them."

StarTech USB3SDOCKHDV
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 4:26P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we’ll take a look at StarTech’s USB3SDOCKHDV, more specifically labeled the Universal USB 3.0 Laptop Docking Station - Dual Video HDMI DVI VGA with Audio and Ethernet (whew). This docking station carries an MSRP of $155 (currently selling for $123 on Amazon.com) and is well above other StarTech options (such as the $100 USBVGADOCK2, which offers just one video output—VGA—10/100 Ethernet, and four USB 2.0 ports). In terms of street price, it is currently available at resellers such as Amazon for around $125.

RaidSonic ICY BOX IB-121CL-U3 HDD Docking
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 4:25P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Desktop Hard Drives were initially designed for people who either always wanted to keep a valid backup of their sensitive data or people who just preferred to have extra space outside of their systems so they could transfer them onto other systems with ease. Of course this changed with the introduction of portable hard drives and although desktop ones still feature higher capacities and data transfer speeds most consumers tend to prefer size over capacity and performance. Professionals however who work with several internal drives most of the time always had need for something more versatile and this is where docking stations came in a while back. Today docking stations have advanced quite a bit and also offer cloning capabilities between two drives something which can be very useful to some people especially professionals. The ICY BOX IB-121CL-U3 HDD Docking & Clone Station by RaidSonic is one such device and today we have it on our test bench.

OCZ Vertex 450 @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last time we took a look at a full SSD I was extremely impressed. That drive was the new Vector drive from OCZ, at the time a departure from what they had been doing. Around the same time as our review, OCZ introduced their new Vertex 450 drive that shares a lot with the Vector that I was especially impressed with. The 450 is designed to give you the same Barefoot Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller in the same aluminum shell but with 20nm MLC NAND rather than the 25nm MLC NAND that the Vector has. Let’s find out if the Vertex 450 is as impressive as the Vector.

With the help of the Sky Share S10 Wi-Fi SD Card from Silicon Power we are able to transfer multimedia content via Wi-Fi to our computer or directly to portable devices, without the need of a middle man. The transfer rate on Wireless can be influenced by several factors and is recommended to place the camera as close as possible in order to overcome interferences or low signal issues."

SSD Form Factors: Everything You Need to Know
     Mon, Jan 13 2014 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When solid state drives first started replacing HDDs, they had to fit into computer chassis or laptop drive bays built for HDDs, so they had to conform to HDD dimensions. However, there's no requirement for the SSD to match the shape of a typical HDD as it's more evident today.

QNAP TS-470 review: a new benchmark
     Mon, Jan 13 2014 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The design of the QNAP TS-470 looks exactly like that of the other QNAP NAS devices we've tested, but looks can be deceiving. Inside, a 2.6 GHz processor is churning away, and with no less than four gigabit ethernet ports, this is a NAS powerhouse.
