Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 7mm 240 GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 8:33A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To say its been a while since we have taken a look at a Mushkin SSD would be an understatement. The last time we took a look at one of their SSDs it was a SATA 2 drive. Things have moved on to bigger, cheaper, and faster things. Mushkin recently introduced their 7mm version of the Chronos Deluxe, a SATA 3 based SSD with advertised transfer speeds of up to 560MB/sec read and IOPS of 90,000. With numbers like that, I had to get my hands on it to see how it performed. How will it compare to all of the other drives with similar advertised performance numbers? Will this be your next SSD?"

Icy Dock MB153SP-B FatCage 3-in-2 SATA Backplane Module @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 11:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Icy Dock FatCage MB153SP-B is a 3-in-2 internal SATA HDD cage that was designed to save space inside a chassis. The Icy Dock FatCage 3-in-2 SATA device is also designed to save time through a simplified mounting mechanism which is interchangeable with ten other Icy Dock internal and external storage items. To keep temperature levels optimal, Icy Dock has outfitted the FatCage series backplane modules with an 80mm cooling fan which actively cools the drives inside. The durable metal frame of the MB153SP FatCage is not only designed for durability, it also dissipates the heat emitted by the drives installed. The Icy Dock MB153SP FatCage only requires two 15-pin SATA power connectors to fully operate three drives and the active cooling fan, saving overall power. For those worried about thermal conditions, especially when installing inside compared to typical HDD cages."

Corsair Neutron GTX 480GB SSD Review
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Neutron GTX 480GB and its LAMD Amber controller represent the next generation of high capacity SSDs.

OCZ Vertex 3 Low Profile 7mm SATA III 240GB SSD - BCCHardware
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 1:30P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are planning on purchasing a new machine that only takes 7mm drives, you can see our review of the OCZ Vertex 3 LP that you won`t have to sacrifice performance. The Vertex 3 LP 240GB drive holds up very well to the competition and is essentially a slimmer version of the Vertex 3 - both in terms of controller and performance - even though OCZ has made the jump from Intel to Micron NAND is this drive. . ."

Vantec NST-400MX-S3R NexStar MX Enclosure Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Nov 15 2012 | 11:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Raid enclosure which we gave the `Recommended` for its support for two drives and a couple different forms of Raid. But it only supported USB 2.0 which is no longer the speed demon we need when it comes to data transfer. So, Vantec has graced us with the newest model of the device and has labeled it the 400MX-S3R. the newer version gives us the USB 3.0 speed we want and plus eSATA for versatility."

Toshiba DT01ABA100 & DT01ACA100 1TB SATA III HDDs Review
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 11:31A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are just months away before the new 5TB mechanical drives make their debut (perhaps sooner) but since price is one of the most decisive factors when choosing a HDD most people still seem to prefer 1TB/2TB models over the larger 3TB/4TB ones. Now as many of you know not only do we always focus to bring reviews of the latest HDD models the industry has to offer but also of the highest capacity variants available. However today we decided to change things a bit and so although we are going to test two brand new HDD models we thought it would be best to test the 1TB variants which should be more appealing to casual users and gamers. So as the title clearly states today on our test bench are the latest 1TB HDD models from Toshiba, the 5700RPM DT01ABA100 and the 7200RPM DT01ACA100."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
