Seagate Thin SSHD 500GB Full Review - Third Generation Hybrid
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 5:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seagate appears to be leading the way in the mobile Hybrid drive market. Each and every generation has pushed the envelope further and come closer to native SSD speeds. The catch is those speeds are only attained for data that is in the cache, and the meager 8GB of flash seems to be holding these devices back when in the hands of more demanding power users with heavier workloads."

     Wed, May 15 2013 | 5:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seagate`s so-called hybrid solutions have been around for a while, successfully combining the capacity of a hard drive with the speed of an SSD. Their new SSHD series takes this mantra to the next level by increasing efficiency while also incorporating a number of significant upgrades."

StarDrive Review
     Tue, May 14 2013 | 10:28A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I cannot say this game is solid in its present form, but I would call it firm, if you will allow me to. Much of what it is lacking is the result of it not living up to its own ambition, and not because the game itself is mediocre. The developers are working to address many of these issues though, and sooner or later they will succeed and make this a truly solid game. At that time, it will be very easy to recommend StarDrive to anyone who enjoys a good 4X game."

SSD NEWS: OWC Envoy Pro EX USB 3.0 Bus-Powered Portable SSD Review
     Tue, May 14 2013 | 7:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
External storage solutions are all the rage as of late and they are reaching performance and capacity heights that we have never seen before. Yesterday, we spoke of technology advancing to the point that we could carry our entire computing environment with us and boot it from any PC and today, we can do that with both Windows and Mac systems. To be useful though, external storage needs to have a few characteristics that we still hasn`t become the norm. USB 3.0 is a must as trying to work on a USB 2.0 system might be cognizant of trying to wade through a thick pool of mud and having an SSD present in the device is key to the performance USB 3.0 speaks to, albeit Thunderbolt would be ideal but has yet to really become mainstream. As much as many not consider it, looks also play a large part and that leads us right into our analysis of the OWC Envoy Pro 240GB external storage SSD that we are examining today."

Crucial M500 480GB Solid-State Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, May 13 2013 | 12:12P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been awhile since we`ve seen any major drive updates from Crucial but wait we will no longer. With the M500 Series of drives, we not only see an updated controller but also some new NAND configurations and a massive 960GB SSD for a price that won`t cause convulsions. We didn`t get our hands on the 960GB version, but we were able to procure the next highest capacity of 480GB which should make for an interesting evaluation. Inside, Crucial has placed an updated Marvell controller along with 20nm NAND with some architectural changes that we`ll discuss a bit more..."

Toshiba MK3001GRRB 300GB SAS 6Gb/s HDD
     Sun, May 12 2013 | 12:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are reading these lines then you should be well aware that the two main reasons behind the increasing demands in storage capacity all of us have are the continuous speed upgrades we have been enjoying in internet bandwidth during the past 10 years in most places around the globe combined of course with the wide availability in Full HD/HD media content. Because of that most people (namely casual users, gamers and even some overclockers) naturally put the usual capacity/price ratio above performance and especially nowadays with the current state of the economy i can`t really blame them for doing that (besides mostly for backup purposes you don`t really need the best possible performance factor). However there are many enterprise users, professionals and enthusiasts out there who always place performance and data integrity above the usual capacity/price ratio and this is where 2.5 SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) drives like the latest Toshiba MK3001GRRB come in."

Seagate Desktop HDD.15 4TB vs WD Black 4TB Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, May 12 2013 | 10:28A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The WD Black and Seagate Desktop HDD.15 are both 4TB drives with 64MB of cache, but they differ internally on how they reach this large capacity. WD uses five 800GB platters and Seagate uses four 1TB platters to reach 4TB. Seagate informed us that the new 1TB per platter design significantly increases the hard drives performance over the competition. It also consumes 35 percent less power than comparable drives on the market with 4TB capacities, so this will be an interesting matchup..."

iStarUSA BPN-DE340SS Storage Bay Adapter Review
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 6:37A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few years back when we didn`t have 3/4TB drives and we were all struggling to make due with 320/500GB ones there was one thing pretty much every single person i know in the IT industry wanted and that was one or more hot-swap 5.25 storage adapters for 3.5 drives. That way everyone could insert a 3.5 drive, take a backup (or share files with friends), remove it and insert another one in just a few seconds (back then docking stations didn`t really exist). Now things have changed and so to most people even a single 4TB drive is way too much, however we are not most people and the same can be said about professionals and enthusiasts around the globe. Unfortunately feature-rich and high quality 5.25 hot-swap storage adapters that can hold over three 3.5 drives are extremely hard to come by in the market today and if you are to sacrifice most if not all of your 5.25 drive bays you want to make the most out of it. iStarUSA designs and manufactures industrial grade products for the most demanding of users and lucky for us they also make some of the best 5.25 drive cages for both SATA II/III and SAS I/II drives like the BPN-DE340SS."

SSD NEWS: Samsung SM843 Enterprise SSD Review (240GB) - Great Read Performance With a Great Price
     Fri, May 10 2013 | 9:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the enterprise side, things were even more veiled. Unless you were a Tier-1 OEM, you had a difficult time procuring Samsung enterprise drives. Many distributors simply did not carry them as part of their line card, so small and mid-sized companies were out of luck. With the introduction of the SM843, Samsung has taken what has worked so well for the 840 Pro, namely performance, price and marketing, and carved themselves out a great niche in the enterprise market."

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.
