Earlier today, before the onslaught of consumer tech goodness that is CES 2011, our man Mat Miranda had a chance to catch up with Micron representatives at the Storage Vision 2011 conference that is taking place before the big show opens in sunny Las Vegas.  Micron it appears is readying their next generation of SSDs to follow-up their very successful RealSSD C300 line-up.  The new top-end model in the family will be named, you guessed it, C400 and in the event you were feeling really clairvoyant, you might also guess that Micron is rolling out SSDs that are bigger and faster versus the...

SSDs account for just a fraction of the storage market in terms of units shipped, but high consumer interest and significant profit margins have brought manufacturers in droves. GSkill isn't exactly a newcomer to the field, but the sheer number of companies in the dogpile make it more difficult for any single manufacturer to win a definitive lead against the others, at least in terms of technology alone. Today we're reviewing GSkill's 60GB Phoenix Pro. This relatively diminutive drive is meant to offer enthusiasts an attractive balance between price and performance, but the Phoenix Pro is fighting...

Initially, only a couple of companies laid the foundation for storage processors when solid state drives first arrived, now we have a broad range of options to choose from. Intel, Samsung, JMicron, Indilinx, and Sandforce, all make SSD controllers, just to name a few. Today we're going to show you yet another new SSD based on a new controller from a long-time player in PC storage, Marvell. The Marvell 88SS9174-BJP2 controller at the heart of the Micron RealSSD C300 we're going to show you today, affords the drive a feature not yet offered on any competing product--SATA III support. This controller,... Read more...
Oh my, Lenovo -- what has gotten into you? In case a new netbook -- the planet's first with Nvidia's Ion technology, at that -- wasn't enough, the company is also introducing three more new machines today. One all-in-one PC is being launched alongside two new notebooks, both of which promise adequate power and great design for a rather affordable price.First off, we've got the 20" desktop shown above, the IdeaCentre C300. For the longest while, those looking for an inexpensive PC were forced to buy the ugliest box known to man and put up with abysmal performance. This machine aims to change all... Read more...
