We at CDFreaks would like to present a review of Plextor's first drive that supports the Blu-ray technology.
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.
Welcome to Myce’s review of the Intel DC P4510 8TB NVMe 8TB Enterprise SSD. The Intel DC P4510 features Intel’s high density 64 Layer, 3D Nand, which enables the huge capacity of 8TB, and targets applications that are primarily read intensive. Please read on to see what we make of this giant SSD.
The LSI Nytro Megaraid 8110-4i (hereafter referred to as the ‘NMR-8110-4i’) is an HBA (Host Bus Adaptor) with its own integrated enterprise grade (eMLC) NAND flash based cache. The cache can be used to accelerate the access to data placed on HDDs that are attached to the HBA. The cache consists of two 100GB SSDs (with Sandforce controllers). The two SSDs can be configured to run as a Raid array reducing the latency (IO response time) of the Cache. In recent months we have reviewed a number of SSHD (Solid State Hybrid Disks) that marry the reduced cost per gigabyte associated with traditional HDDs, with a NAND based cache to give the user an SSD like experience – the NMR-8110-4i can be considered to be an ultimate Enterprise caching solution that can be used in conjunction with up to 128 underlying devices (which may themselves be arranged in Raid arrays).
NU Europe was kind enough to send us their latest DVD-Writer; The NU DDW-081, we applied a firmware upgrade to make it dual format which changed the name to NU DDW-082. NU Tech is a very new brand on the market so we do not know what to expect from this writer. But we will discover more about this drive as we test it.
DVDFab has released a new version of their software, with an additional capability that will be welcomed by their existing customers, and will certainly increase interest in their products. This new feature is the removal of the Cinavia signal found in many Blu-ray movies. They call their solution CinaviaRemoval HD and told us it has been developed totally in-house. In this review we're going to test if it indeed removes Cinavia and if so, how good the resulting audio quality is.

Welcome to Myce’s review of Shuttle’s SZ270R9 XPC Cube Barebone Mini PC. The SZ270R9 consists of a stylish case with a pre-installed mainboard, power supply unit (PSU) and cables. Despite its small form factor, it offers outstanding connectivity, functionality and performance. For a full PC system, a processor, memory, HDD or SSD storage and optionally a graphics card need to be added. Shuttle XPC cube Barebones are completely customisable meaning users can pick certain components on their own to ideally match their individual needs. Please read on to see what we made of the SZ270R9.
Today I'm taking a look at the new Toshiba HG6 series of SSDs. The HG6 is the first SSD in the world to use A19nm (advanced) Toggle 2 MLC NAND. A19nm NAND is said to provide greater performance, but is this the case? Let's find out in this review.
Plextor SA/NV (B) was kind enough to send us one of their latest DVD Burners, the PX-755A for review. In this review we will be testing how the PX-755A performs with different media types.

Welcome to Myce’s review of the Samsung 845DC EVO 480GB SATA Enterprise SSD (hereafter referred to as the 845DC EVO). These days there is an air of excitement at Myce when we receive a Samsung SSD for review. The last Samsung Enterprise SSD we reviewed was the 845DC PRO, which uses 3D VNAND to deliver class leading random write intensive performance. With 845DC EVO Samsung now brings the use of 19nm 3bit TLC NAND (or 3bit Toggle MLC NAND, as Samsung prefers to call it) to the enterprise market. With the 845DC EVO Samsung targets the mixed/read intensive workload market segment, where low price, excellent read and reasonable write performance are demanded. The use of 3bit TLC NAND should give Samsung a significant price advantage but how will it perform? Please read this review to find out.
