TSSDR Mega SSD Giveaway Week 1 - OCZ Vertex 4 512GB SSD
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 4:04P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This week marks the second anniversary of The SSD Review and we wanted to find a way to celebrate and thought giving away a few ideas might be a good idea. Were we in for a shock? The support we received in response to our request for `an SSD or two` has been overwhelming and we think that, by the end of this giveaway, this one is just going to be that tough to beat! Help us celebrate our anniversary by taking part in our giveaways starting with the OCZ Vertex 4 512GB SSD."

LaCie 4big Rack Office review
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LaCie recently added a new model to its line of Windows storage servers. The 4big Rack Office is positioned next to the 5big Office and the 5big Office+, and is made to fit in a rack like the name suggests. Most rack models are not exactly the most attractively designed products, but LaCie put some effort into this design like it does with all its products. The chassis is made entirely out of aluminium, and while it's intended for a 19-inch rack, it wouldn't look out of place on a table either.

REVIEW: OCZ Agility 4 256GB @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?It?s not always the enthusiasts (and well-heeled) that want blistering speeds, and certainly not just in the SSD arena. Anyone with an SSD can benefit from massive performance gains over a hard drive, from the most diehard to the budget-oriented consumer. So the OCZ Agility 4 targets the latter, incorporating the Everest 2 controller but offering an SSD package that?s very accessible to users on a modest budget. The interesting thing about the Agility 4 is the Everest controller looks to offer nearly enthusiast-classed performance, particularly in incompressible data, at a much lower price point than we typically see. Currently retailing for only $189 in the 256GB capacity ($100 for 128GB), that?s only $0.73 per GB and a very attractive deal. But how does the performance of the OCZ Agility 4 measure up? Is it worth the investment? Let?s find out.?"

Posted by: STAFF
We compare the Samsung 830 256GB to vastly different drives in the same price range from OCZ, Intel, and Crucial to see if we can find a clear winner.

SSD NEWS: ADATA SX300 128GB mSATA SSD Review - LSI SandForce Performance In Top Capacities
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 3:43P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The popularity of mSATA SSDs is probably one of the more unexpected SSD trends to show its face and, even today, e-tailers just can`t seem to keep mSATA SSDs in stock. With consumers now wanting the performance best in their mSATA capable laptops, ultras hitting the market, as well as a few motherboards now being shipped with integrated mSATA ports, this trend doesn`t seem to be letting up anytime soon. In a few Lenovo laptops models, the mSATA became an answer to both performance and capacity as the SSD became the boot drive enabling the hard drive as strictly a storage medium. Our SSD analysis today will look at another of the mSATA family as we examine the new ADATA SX300 mSATA 128GB SSD."

OWC Mercury Accelsior 480GB PCI-E Solid State Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 11:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PCI-Express solid state drives are fairly new and there are only a handful of these drives available. These devices break the speed barrier on SATA 6GB/s drives by using the PCI-E interface. The most prevalent PCI-E solid state drives our OCZs RevoDrive series, but OCZ better watch out because the drive we are taking a look at today has a few features that the RevoDrives do not. The OWC Mercury Accelsior PCI-E Solid State Drive comes in capacities from 120GB to 960GB, is upgradable, and is both PC and Mac plug and play compatible. Want to learn more? Read on for our review!"

Corsair Force GS 240GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 11:52A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair`s Force GS 240GB may be one of the best SSDs we`ve reviewed over the past year. While it may use a slightly older SF2281 controller, the use advanced NAND allows for killer performance at an unbelievably low price. This drive really does have it all. * *"

Posted by: STAFF
Mushkin now introduces the Catalyst Cache solid state drive. It`s in fact an optional 50 or 100 GB SSD intended just for caching. Combined with Dataplex cache application software and your own HDD, the combination could be just what you have been looking for. Read the full review here"

Crucial V4 256GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 3:43P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* *At first glance the Crucial V4 256GB is the antithesis of current SSDs since it fails to deliver convincing performance wins over its brethren. However, the V4 still provides HDD-destroying benchmark numbers and 256GB of capacity alongside a price of under $180. * *"

Convar BytePac Eco-Friendly Paper Hard Drive Enclosure Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 11:52A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those that go out of their way to minimize impacts on the environment, this is a no-brainer. According to Convar, the average hard drive plastic case is produced using 350ml of crude oil. Cardboard is also much more cost-effective in terms of manufacturing so the cost for the kit we reviewed is very reasonable at $55.93. Frankly, the cables alone are worth that much and are all covered by a generous 5-year warranty. Overall, it`s very innovative, works as advertised, and we really have nothing negative to say about our experience with the BytePac. .."

ADATA Nobility NH13 750GB External Hard Drive Review @ TechwareLabs
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 9:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During our recent trip to Computex in Tiapei we were able to talk to ADATA and get a look at their USB 3.0 Storage line. With USB 3.0 being a large increase in speed and performance over USB 2.0 it`s a no brainer upgrade. Today we will be taking a look at a 750GB external HDD from the the Nobility NH13 line. Our gauge for looking at this product will be Performance and Build Quality."

Saitek Pro Flight Controller Accessories
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 11:58A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Saitek`s Pro Flight Cessna Yoke system left me very impressed - Saitek had done a great job at creating a realistic feeling flight control system for under $250 (avid sim enthusiasts know that competing systems can cost quite a bit more!). One aspect of the system I didn`t get to touch on in that review was it`s expandability. Saitek offers almost a dozen different add-on modules for the system - ranging from rudder pedals to a variety of button and radio panels and even LCD instrument panels! Today I have three expansion accessories here and I will take a look at how these add-ons perform and how easy it is to upgrade your existing setup to give you an even better sense of realism in your flight sim."

Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 9:53A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Driven by a Link_A_Media (LAMD) Controller Neutron GTX is backed by Toshiba Toggle Flash NAND and boasts better random read/write speeds as well as sequential performance too. Corsair have extended warranty with the Neutron Series also, the usual 3 years warranty is a thing of the past ? make way for a superior 5 years warranty instead. Neutron GTX is shaping up to be a very competent offering so let?s waste no further time and begin analysis."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
