It's time to take a closer look on on of the fastest USB3 flash drives, the Lexar P20 and see how it performs. Continue reading to out everything about the Lexar P20.
Last year I had the opportunity to test the Lexar JumpDrive Triton, and at that time I was amazed by the performance. Now, almost a year later, I have the opportunity to test the P10. The Lexar JumpDrive P10 is here to set new standards, and all you have to do to find out about this is to continue reading this review.
The InCharge Duo is a dual charging dock for iPod and iPhone. Let's find out what the pros and cons of this device are.

One thing that has remained pretty constant since SSDs started to appear, is that the storage interface they connect to appears to struggle to keep pace with the performance levels of the SSD. The SATA2 interface was soon saturated by the SSDs of the day, and SATA3 hasn't done much better. If we look at mainstream PC platform chipsets such as the Intel Z68, Z77, Z87, and now Z97, they all have one thing in common. You have the high speed 'north' side of the board where the CPU, memory, and PCIe3 reside. PCIe3 connects direct to the CPU, and has 16 10Gbps lanes available for graphics cards or PCIe storage. That neatly brings us to the point of this article. In this review I will be checking out an M.2. PCIe SSD in the shape of the Plextor M6e M.2. Let's find out how it performs in this review.
Pioneer Europe was kind enough to send us their latest DVD-Writer; The Pioneer DVR-107D. This writer is a much anticipated drive and our expectations are very high. In this review we will run the drive through several advanced tests, and try to test as many aspects as possible.
OCZ are never a company to stand still. Only last month I reviewed the Vertex 4, and found it was the fastest SSD I had ever reviewed. Just one month down the line and OCZ have updated the firmware which promises even better performance. Let's check it out in this article.
Hello and welcome to Myce’s first edition of the Enterprise SSD Performance Index (‘ESP Index’). Now that we have been reviewing Enterprise SSDs for 6 months we thought it would be interesting and fun to directly compare some of the key performance metrics for the drives we have found in our reviews to date.
Philips Europe (NL) was kind enough to send us their latest internal DVD-writer - the Philips DVDR16LS. This drive is one on the first drives to support the new LightScribe feature/technique. Further this drive supports 16x DVD+R writing, 8x DVD-R and 2.4x DVD+R9 DL writing technology, allowing dual layer discs of 8.5Gb to be written.
This DVD burner made by Panasonic is a \'Super Multi\' drive, meaning that it supports reading and writing to almost all major formats including CD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R DL and DVD-RAM. How does this burner stand up to the competition? Please read the review to find out!
Welcome to Myce’s review of the Smart Storage Systems Cloudspeed 1000E SATA Enterprise SSD. Sandisk recently completed the acquisition of Smart Storage Systems. The last Smart Storage Systems drive that we reviewed was the truly outstanding Optimus, our current Editor’s choice from amongst SAS based Enterprise SSDs. However, the Cloudspeed is a relatively inexpensive solution that targets mixed workloads and Smart tells us that the Cloudspeed will be sold at a sub 1.30 USD per gigabyte price point – this will put it head to head with Intel’s DC S3500, which we reviewed recently. With the DC S3500 we saw how Intel had managed with the packaging of its new smaller size 20nm MLC NAND (as compared to its sister drive the Intel DCS3700, which uses the same set of components but with 25nm eMLC NAND) – it is fair to say that write performance and endurance suffered. So it will be interesting to see how Smart Storage Systems has managed with the packaging of its new 19nm MLC NAND solution and how it compares with its closest competitor.
This pen drive claims up to 32MB/s read and 18MB/s write and 256bit built-in encryption. In this review we see how well its performance stands up in real life use, the ease of using its encryption feature and whether the encryption requires elevated (administrator) access.
It's been quite a while since we at CD Freaks reviewed a CD-RW drive. With a plethora of DVD burners to choose from and prices forever falling, most people can afford a DVD burner. But perhaps not everyone needs a DVD burner, so there is still a place in the market for CD-RW drives.
The Verbatim Store 'n' Go Micro 4GB Drive is very small and will fit on almost any system no matter how limited the space is near the USB port.
Plextor has finally released a DVD writer, model PX-716A, that supports double layer recording. Can the drive keep up with today's competitors? Read this review to find out!
