PNY XLR8 PRO Solid State Drive @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Nov 06 2012 | 1:21A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not many Solid State Drive manufacturers offer a five-year full-replacement product warranty, but PNY does. Built in the USA, the PNY XLR8 PRO SSD series combines a second-generation LSI/SandForce SF-2281 SATA 6Gb/s controller with fast IMFT-branded NAND flash components to produce up to 85,000 IOPS. PNY has tweaked the XLR8 PRO SSD-series to deliver transfer speeds up to 550 MB/s read and 520 MB/s write. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests these claims, and compares XLR8 PRO SSD performance to competing storage solid-state solutions to find out which SSD is best."

[DreamWare Computers] Vantec NexStar MX External HDD Enclosure
     Sun, Nov 04 2012 | 5:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roughly five years ago we first reviewed the Vantec NexStar MX hard drive enclosure. The NexStar MX was a stylish looking, dual drive RAID enclosure which featured USB 2.0 connectivity. Since that time, the NexStar MX has remained on the market as a good priced, good quality dual drive USB 2.0 enclosure. However, over the last five years a lot has changed with external storage. New interfaces like eSATA and USB 3.0 have quickly made the slow speed USB 2.0 almost extinct. To meet the demands of this ever evolving market, Vantec has taken the popular NexStar MX and revised it to now feature USB 3.0 and eSATA connectivity. Without any further adieu, let`s see what the new and improved NexStar MX is all about!"

SSD NEWS: SMART Storage Systems CloudSpeed 500 6Gbps Server Grade SSD Review
     Sat, Nov 03 2012 | 1:59P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many organizations implement a rip and replace model using cheaper consumer-grade SSDs, and when they inevitably meet their demise under intensive workloads, they`re simply removed and replaced with new drives, increasing the cost of storage. Instead of moving up to much pricier solid state storage options, simply burning though cheaper drives makes more financial sense. SMART Storage System`s new CloudSpeed 500 is aimed to fill that gap with a just right combination of 3x the endurance of consumer drives at an attractive price."
