Our today’s roundup will talk about eight SSD solutions from Kingston, OCZ, Super Talent and Wintec, which demonstrated dramatically different performance levels ranging from excellent to really mediocre.
We are going to talk about the new 1 TB HDD models that appeared in the market over the past year. And since one of these solutions is Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EARS with 4 KB sectors, we will also discuss this type of HDD internal structure, its pros and cons.
At this time SSD performance is determined by the controllers they are built on and firmware versions they use. We are already very well familiar with SSDs on Intel, Indillinx and Samsung controllers. Today time has come to talk about the solutions using JMicron chips.
It looks like we have just got another proof of the world progress theory. First we discussed 2 TB hard drives with 5,400 RPM spindle rotation speed. And today we are going to look at six solutions with faster rotating platters from Hitachi, Seagate and Western Digital.
For a few years we have been putting aside an absolutely new type of hard disk drives: server solutions in 2.5-inch form-factor. We realized it was a big omission on our part and today we are ready to rehabilitate ourselves at least partially by introducing to you six solutions like that.
Finally the first representatives of the new SAS RAID controller generation supporting 6 Gbps appeared. Today we are going to introduce to you the first controller like that from one of the leaders in this industry – LSI Company.
We are going to compare six SAS RAID controllers we have reviewed before side by side in this roundup. Solutions from 3ware, Adaptec, Areca, HighPoint, LSI and promise - all in one article.
We would like to introduce to you ioSafe Solo storage solution. It differs dramatically from numerous other solutions based on 3.5-inch HDDs by a number of quite extraordinary features: it will preserve the data even after spending three days in a 3 m deep pool of water or after 30 minute heating up to 850°C.
In our today’s roundup e are going to take a closer look at 17 SAS HDDs with storage capacities from 74 GB to 600 GB launched over the past several years. Find out who the winner is in the today’s SAS arena.
Our today’s article will talk about a new Intel solid state drive using 34 nm chips and five solid state drives from OCZ, four of which are built on the Indillinx Barefoot controller that we haven’t discussed yet in our articles.
Solid State Drives (SSD) are no longer something unusual or extraordinary. Now they little by little take over the market. Today we are going to compare three SSD solutions from Intel including X25-E on fast SLC memory versus Corsair P128 using new Samsung chip.
Some time ago we already discussed the first HDDs with 500 GB platters. Now time has come to compare side by side seven solutions with 1.5 and 2 TB storage capacities.
Some time ago we already reviewed the first 2.5-inch models with 500 GB storage capacity. Now time has come to compare side by side the solutions from all manufacturers that are currently available in the market.
Back in the days, Areca ARC-1220 controller made such a great impression on us that we continued using it in our lab for a long time. We wonder if the new SAS RAID controller, which we will review today, manages to repeat the success of its predecessor.
Today we will talk about a SAS RAID controller from HighPoint that belongs to the highest-performance controller series from this maker. It is based on a popular Intel IOP348 processor with 1.2 GHz frequency. Read more in our review!
We continue our series of SAS RAID controller reviews with the solution from LSI Value line. It has four ports and boasts excellent read speeds. Read more in our review.
“Dual-core processor working at 1.2GHz frequency” – you may think that this line was taken from one of the contemporary netbook descriptions. In fact, this processor is the heart of the 5th series of Adaptec RAID controllers. Read more in our review.
We continue testing RAID controllers on a platform with SAS drives. Today we are going to talk about an 8-port SAS/SATA RAID controller from LSI 3ware family. Read more in our review.
Our today’s review is going to talk about the recently released hard disk drive models with 375GB and 500GB per platter data density. We are going to introduce to you the new dual-platter Seagate 7200.12 with 1TB storage capacity, 1.5TB Seagate 7200.11 and the today’s capacity leader – 2TB Western Digital Caviar Green.
Not so long ago a terabyte was considered unrealistically large capacity that could only be possible on multi-drive arrays. Today singe hard disk drives of this size have become quite common. And of course, 1TB external solutions didn’t keep us waiting for long. Today we are going to talk about three solutions like that from Seagate FreeAgent family.
