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.
Today we are going to talk about 1TB hard disk drives from all manufacturing making 3.5-inch HDDs, namely: Hitachi, Samsung, Seagate and Western Digital. Read our extensive roundup for details!
Data density increases and so do the storage capacities and speeds of new hard disk drives. 2.5-inch models reached 320 GB, which means time has come to compare them against the previous-generation solutions and 3.5-inch models.
Today we are going to discuss the performance of five hard disk drives from Samsung, Seagate and Western Digital that feature 640GB storage capacity.
The hard disk drives storage capacities increase day by day. The first 2.5-inch HDD with 500 GB storage capacity got into our lab about 6 months ago. Now it is far not the only one out there. Moreover, its competitors are built on only two platters instead of three.
We managed to get our hands on six HDD models in 2.5-inch form-factor with 320GB storage capacity. This capacity is not record-breaking, but definitely one of the most demanded, so we couldn’t miss the opportunity to check out the highs and lows of each solution.
In our today’s article we are going to compare the performance of RAID arrays of different types built of four HDDs of 8 different models. Among our testing participants will be 3.5-inch HDDs from all four leading hard drives manufacturers, including not only desktop but also special server models.
