Today I'm examining USB3 UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol).
UASP allows NCQ over USB, and therefore scalable queue depth performance.
But how will UASP perform?
Let's find out in this article.
DVDFab DVD Copy is a familiar name to most of us but how does the new version 9 measure up? Find out in this in depth review brought to you exclusively by Myce.
While Class 10 SD cards are pretty common now, this card features UHS-1 capability, claiming to deliver up to 90MB/s read and 45MB/s write. We take a look at how it handles in the real world with continuous shooting and offloading performance and whether it meets its performance claims with UHS and legacy hosts.

In part one of this study, I'll be looking at the write endurance of TLC NAND.
TLC NAND is not new. It has been used in USB flash drives for a while, where write endurance is not really an issue.
Samsung launched the first consumer SSD with TLC NAND not long ago, in the shape if the 840 series.
Does TLC NAND have what it takes for SSD use?
Let's make a start to finding out in part 1 of this article.
Take a well proven SSD controller with mature firmware, the SandForce SF-2281, then surround it with the latest in NAND technology (20nm MLC NAND), and you have the OCZ Vertex 3.20.
Let's find out how this new SSD performs in this review.
This article is about how you can make an SSD bench more quickly!
For those of you that are puzzled by why your SSD does not bench as fast as it does for someone else – this article is for you.
In this article I am going to show you how you may make your bench results go faster and faster.
Here at Myce.com the Hardware Review Team has recently been considering how best to review and test Enterprise level Solid State Storage solutions. Given our track record in the review and testing of Consumer SSDs we soon found ourselves wondering how Consumer SSDs would perform in tests aimed at Enterprise solutions. We also noticed that Enterprise solutions typically have a much larger amount of NAND storage dedicated for use by their controller (the controller is the heart of an SSD and controls the reading, writing and placement of data in the NAND storage together with the mapping of the storage to a user’s host environment and file system). So we also wondered if consumer SSDs would perform better in enterprise tests if we supplemented the relatively small amount of NAND they have set aside for their controllers by leaving space unassigned for use by the host and its file system. We present our findings, which we feel you may find surprising as well as interesting, in this article.
MyCE takes an in depth look on the Kingston V300 SSD. The V300 come with an affordable price and it promises not to compromise the speed. You can read all about it's performance in this review.

This is a review of Raxco's latest release of PerfectDisk Pro, Version 12.5.
With a quick glance it is obvious that PerfectDisk has evolved significantly since I last looked at it.
PerfectDisk still has the primary objective of keeping drives in an optimal performance state by reducing the level of fragmentation of files and free space and thus a key question that comes straight into my mind is – How does it compare to the defragmentation facility that comes packaged with Windows?
The other key questions that occur to me are – is the new preventative ‘Optiwrite’ functionality, that stops fragmentation from happening in the first place, effective? And, is the new ‘SSD Optimise’ functionality effective?
I have endeavoured to find some indicative answers to these questions in my testing.
The worlds first SSD to use TLC NAND.
The Samsung 840 is the worlds first SSD to use TLC NAND.
This allows the Samsung 840 SSD to be very attractively priced, but how does it perform?
Let's find out in this review.
With 19nm toggle 2 NAND, and Marvell's latest SSD controller, Plextor is mounting a serious challenge to the Samsung 840 Pro and the OCZ Vector.
The Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme also has an attractive price, but can it match the two heavy weights in regards to performance?

In this review I will taking a look at the new Samsung 840
Pro series SSD, in fact the 512GB version. Samsung are in a very strong
position when it comes to sourcing components for their SSDs. They don't have
to look far as they make all the major components in-house, and that includes
the SSD controller, the NAND, and even the cache.
Let's find out how this SSD performs.
