OWC Mercury Electra MAX 3G 960GB SSD Review
     Sat, Nov 10 2012 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since Day One in the SSD arena, there has been a constant struggle where a seemingly three way tug of war is seen between performance, capacity and value. Enter TLC memory and we just may hit both value and capacity at some point, however, manufacturers still believe the feasibility of marketing a 1TB SSD just isn’t there yet. This a mainstream vision, and one held strictly on predicted sales figures alone, so what is available for those that require that 1TB SSD for their needs today?

Mushkin 7mm Chronos Deluxe 120GB SSD Review @HiTech Legion
     Sat, Nov 10 2012 | 11:46A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
/Renowned memory manufacturer Mushkin is answering the call with the 7mm Chronos Deluxe SSD line with available cpapcities from 60-480GB. In this article we will be looking at the Mushkin 7mm Chronos Deluxe 120GB MKNSSDCR120GB-DX7, which at 120GB has been the most popular recent size among consumers. While thinner, the 7mm Chronos Deluxe retains all of the features and technology that made the standard Chronos Deluxe a top performer. The 7mm Chronos Deluxe uses the SandForce 2281 controller paired with high speed synchronous MLC NAND to achieve blistering 560 MB/s read and 515 MB/s write speeds with 90,000 IOPS (4K random write, 4K aligned) using a SATA III connection. Though slim, the 7mm Chronos Deluxe still shows off shock resistance to 1500G and a temperature tolerance from 0-70 C for reliability in stressful environments./"

The MX-ES can be mistaken for a cheap run-of-the-mill USB 2.0 drive, but its generic housing holds an SLC-flash-based heart. Mach Xtreme got us drooling with advertised speeds of 170/185 MB/s read/write. The drive did not quite hit those numbers, but managed to get our nod of approval."

World's Fastest 30GB mSATA Solid-State Drive
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 1:45A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mushkin, Inc., an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance and mission-critical computer products, today announced the worldwide launch of its new 30GB Atlas deluxe(TM) mSATA solid-state drive (SSD), scheduled to start shipping this month.

The new 30GB Atlas deluxe(TM), the latest from the award-winning mSATA SSD product line, is the fastest on the market, featuring read/write speeds up to 555/365 megabytes per second, and 4KB random read/write IOPS up to 92,000/70,000. Atlas deluxe(TM) delivers SSD reliability and performance, in a lower-powered, smaller mSATA SSD form factor that measures about an eighth of the size for easy installation on any device with an mSATA slot. Validated for NVELO Dataplex(TM) caching software and Intel(R) Smart Response Technology, the Atlas deluxe(TM) mSATA is well-suited as a cache for existing hard drives or as a standalone SSD for thin and light laptops and Ultrabooks(TM).

"Atlas deluxe(TM) is one of the top mSATA SSDs on the market today, having won Editor's Choice from TheSSDReview.com for delivering 'top performance at an unbeatable price,'" said Brian Flood, Director of Product Development at Mushkin. "We are pleased to expand this award-winning product line with a new 30GB offering. Even the most demanding customers can now satisfy their performance needs at a price that just makes sense."

Vantec NST-D400SU3 NexStar SuperSpeed Dual Bay Hard Drive Dock Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Nov 07 2012 | 1:59P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first will be the NST-D400SU3 aka NexStar SuperSpeed Dual Bay hard drive dock. After the introduction of enclosure, docks soon followed and in many cases became more useful than an enclosure. There is no assembling and disassembling, just plug and go. The D400SU3 is ideal as it can hold two drives. One added feature to this new model is you can take advantage of both high-speed connections..eSATA and USB 3.0."

Vantec MRK-425ST-BK EZ Swap F4 Quad Bay 2.5 SATA SSD/HDD Rack @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, Nov 06 2012 | 1:59P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To my surprise one of the fastest growing component being seen in system builds are hard drive racks, especially in small form factor rigs. And I am sure this has to be either the lack of space in some of these SFF cases or the difficult it takes to which drives in and out after the system has been completely built. Our friends at Vantec have sent to us over our first multi-drive 2.5 rack in the form of the MRK-425ST-BK or the F4 Quad Bay rack. The rack installed in a single 5.25 optical drive bay and can house a total of four 2.5 SATA drives allowing you to get rid the interior HDD cages and allow for better airflow in many cases."

PNY has tweaked the XLR8 PRO SSD-series to deliver transfer speeds up to 550 MB/s read and 520 MB/s write.
