Samsung was kind enough to send me one of their brand new 950 Pro M.2 series NVMe SSDs for review. In this case the 250GB M.2 NVMe version. There is also a 512GB version available, which I hope to review soon. The Samsung 950 Pro NVMe M.2 range of SSDs are aimed squarely at mainstream consumers, where the price of the product matters. Therefore the Samsung 950 Pro will have to compete head on with SATA SSDs where price is concerned. Let's find out how this brand new SSD range performs.
Today I am taking a quick look on the Corsair Strafe keyboard, it comes with Cherry MX RED switched, and also it had RED LED's. So lets take a closer look.
Lite-On It B.V. was kind enough to send us their latest DVD Burner, the SHW-16H5S for review, and we will be putting the SHW-16H5S through its paces in this review. The Lite-On SHW-16H5S supports 16x DVD±R, 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW and 8x/4x DVD+R DL/DVD-R DL writing technology, allowing Double/Dual Layer discs of 8.GB to be written. The Lite-On SHW-16H5S also supports LightScribe label writing technology.

Welcome to Myce’s review of the Toshiba PX02SMF020 (6G) SAS Enterprise SSD. As the inventor of flash storage Toshiba’s SSD pedigree is second to none. The first and important thing to note is that the PX02SM series of SSDs is also available with a 12 Gb/s SAS interface but it is the model with a 6 Gb/s interface that is the subject of this review. We will therefore not achieve the peak performance marks as specified by Toshiba below. We hope to have opportunity to review a 12 Gb/s model later in the year. Regular readers may remember that I outlined the key features of an SAS interface (in comparison to an SATA interface) as part of Myce’s review of the Sandisk/Smart Optimus – please see here. The PX02SMF020 has a dual SAS port but does not have a ‘wide’ port like the Smart Optimus does; it therefore has all the failover advantages afforded by two access paths but does not have the ability to aggregate bandwidth across 2 ports for improved performance. The PX02SM series uses Toshiba’s own 24nm eMLC NAND, with 56GB set aside for use by the controller. The drive proves to be a great performer. Now that Myce has gained some good experience of reviewing Enterprise SSDs we will soon be publishing the first edition of the Myce – Enterprise SSD Performance index (the ESP index, for short), where we will be taking some of the key performance metrics from our regular enterprise testing and comparing results for the enterprise drives we have thus far reviewed. So, look out for the Myce ESP index arriving in the near future.
Welcome to Myce’s review of the Samsung SM863 Enterprise SSD. The SM863 is available in capacities of 120, 240, 480, 960, and 1,920GB. The 480 GB drive is the subject of this review. Logically, the SM863 replaces the 845DC PRO in Samsung’s product portfolio. The SM863 introduces the use of 32 Layer, MLC V-NAND whereas the 845DC PRO used 24 Layer, MLC V-NAND. Will the SM863 improve upon the 845DC PRO, which we awarded our ‘Outstanding’ rating? Please read on to find out.
Welcome to Myce’s review of the Toshiba OCZ RC100 480GB NVMe SSD. The Toshiba RC100 is the second m.2 NVMe drive, I have tested, that uses only 2 PCIe lanes (the first was the Corsair MP300). Like Corsair, Toshiba aspires to create a new market segment which lies between SATA SSDs and ‘premium’ NVMe SSDs. Please read on to find if they are likely to succeed.
The Philips SPD7000BD supports 2x BD-R/BD-RE (single layer), 1x BD-R/BD-RE (dual layer), 12x DVD±R, 8x/6x DVD+RW/-RW..........
In this NAS review, MyCE is taking a closer look at the Plextor PX-NAS2-BL1 NAS. Read further to see the full Plextor PX-NAS2-BL1 Review.
A Pro class SSD needs to offer something which sets it apart from the standard consumer grade SSD. It needs to offer superior mixed read and write performance. Offer better endurance, and be able to sustain its performance whilst under a heavy workload. The Samsung 850 PRO series of SSDs are classed as 'professional class' SSDs, but do they have what it takes to justify the additional cost over a standard consumer grade SSD? Let's find out in this review.
ADATA has released their new SSD, the Ultimate SU800 and it comes packed with the latest that they have to offer, so its time for me to take a closer look at ADATA's first 3D NAND SSD and to find you what the SU800 SSD can do.
This time we're going to take a look at the LG GSA-4040B Super multi DVD Writer. Since it supports DVD-RAM in addition to DVD+R/RW and DVD-R/RW it could in fact be called a triple format DVD-Writer. Our expectations for this DVD-Writer are very high, so let's see if it lives up to them!
Could the new Hantech Markus 800 endanger DViCo‟s TViX range?
Myce takes an in-depth look at the Toshiba 1TB 2.5" SATA HDD, one of the largest capacity HDDs available in a 9.5mm height. How does it compare against a full size 1TB desktop HDD or even a 320GB HDD commonly found in laptops? Let's find out in this review, where we also take a look at the impact of multitasking and disk fragmentation on its performance.
