240GB OCZ Vertex 450 Solid State Drive
Featured Reviews: Storage

The last time we tested the OCZ Vertex 4, it was powered by a dual-core Marvell controller that combined technology from separate sources. This time, the OCZ Vertex 450 solid state drive is made of in-house components. Featuring an Indilinx BF3-M10 Barefoot 3 controller that supports 20nm Synchronous Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash components with AES-256 encryption and Trim support, Vertex 450 is good for 540 MB/s read speeds over a SATA 6-Gb/s connection. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the 240GB OCZ Vertex 450 SSD, model VTX450-25SAT3-256G, against the leading competition.

240GB OCZ Vertex 3.20 Solid State Drive
Featured Reviews: Storage

OCZ Technology launched their Vertex 3 solid state drive based on the second-generation LSI-SandForce SF-2281 processor back in early 2011, making it a familiar storage product among high-performance enthusiasts. Two years later they've revisited the popular design, and made several improvements. Now available with 20nm Synchronous Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash components, Vertex 3.20 is designed to offer better performance for less cost. Vertex 3.20 arrives in 120GB and 240GB capacities, both offering 550 MB/s reads and 520 MB/s writes. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the 240GB OCZ Vertex 3.20 SSD (model VTX3-25SAT3-240G.20), and compares it against both the 120GB model as well as the fastest SATA 6GB/s storage solutions available.

ADATA DashDrive Air AE400 Wireless Storage
Featured Reviews: Storage
Just the other day my wife was telling me that she needed something to put in her purse that she could use to recharge her iPhone when the battery died on her. She has a lot of kid's apps on there and the games and videos drain the battery life very quickly. If she is out and about, without an extended amount of time to plug the phone into a static charger, this can quickly turn into a big issue. Also plaguing her is the amount of space that all those Dora and Blue's Clues episodes take up on phone, leaving precious little space available for taking a thousand pictures that we'll probably never look at again. While there are plenty of options available as solutions to both of those issues, ADATA has recently released a device that takes care of both of those and more. Benchmark Reviews has the new ADATA DashDrive Air AE400, a wireless hotspot, battery charger, and media streaming device that fits perfectly into a purse or even a cargo pocket. It looks pretty stellar too. Follow along and we'll talk about everything this little device can do.

Featured Reviews: Storage

Try to imagine what the ideal external hard drive docking station might look like. It should be compact, intuitive to use, and ideally be a relatively good looking piece of hardware. And it should be fast. At first glance the I-NA321U+ seems to have all that and more. The I-NA321U+ is a USB 3.0 compatible dual hard drive docking system with a few very handy features. Perhaps the most interesting of the value-added features is a one touch drive copy function. In this article, Benchmark Reviews will take a look at this relatively new dual drive docking station from ineo Technology, Inc.
