  • Storage buying guide: Finding the best storage device for you

    By Elias Plastiras | 04 May, 2015 11:50

    The advent of streaming music services, and more recently of video on demand services (SVOD) in Australia such as Netflix, Stan, and Presto, has put a lot of audio and video content within fingertip reach. You can access it whenever you want, without you having to worry about the amount of storage space in your computing device. But not everyone has the ability to stream, and local storage is still as important as ever for backups. Here's our guide on the best storage solution for your data storage problem.

  • Debunking SSD Myths

    By By Chuck Brown, SSD business development manager, Intel | 23 January, 2015 09:25

      By now everyone is aware of the performance leap offered by solid-state drives (SSDs) compared to hard disk drives (HDDs), but some SSD myths persist. It's time to separate fact from fiction.

  • Tested: Which PC upgrades offer the biggest performance boost for your buck?

    By Marco Chiappetta | 21 March, 2014 13:13

    Upgrading an aging PC is a bit of a crapshoot. Sure, a faster processor or GPU, more memory, or a solid state drive can significantly speed up a system. But figuring out which upgrade will yield the biggest performance increase depends on your particular use case and other bottlenecks in the rig.

  • Four considerations for SSD deployment

    By Bob Fine | 02 November, 2009 19:01

    While solid state drives offer increased performance, the key to figuring out the role they can play in the data center is balancing that performance against cost.

  • OCZ's new Agility SSD is true to its name

    By Lucas Mearian | 20 July, 2009 08:24

    OCZ has had its share of problems out of the gate with its low-end, consumer solid-state disk drive, the Apex Series SATA II. But its most recent economy SSD, the Agility Series SATA II 2.5-in., appears to be a successful effort to correct old problems with fresh technology. The Agility has ample cache to boost write performance and, most important, uses a higher-end controller. Yet it is only slightly more expensive than the Apex, which is still being sold.

  • Samsung shrinks SSDs for netbooks

    By Agam Shah | 23 June, 2009 11:41

    Samsung on Monday introduced solid-state drives (SSDs) for netbooks that are smaller than traditional SSDs and consume significantly less power.

  • Solid-state disks offer 'fast erase' features

    By Robert L. Mitchell | 10 February, 2009 10:13

    As the pilot ejects inside enemy territory, the fighter jet triggers an automatic data-destruction sequence. Within 15 seconds, the highly classified mission data on the solid-state disk has been wiped out.

  • Which operating system is best for SSDs?

    By Lucas Mearian | 12 December, 2008 07:59

    Solid-state disk (SSD) drive architecture can play a big role in how fast a computer boots up and performs. But how big a role the SSDs play -- and how much faster an operating system is -- depends as much on the operating system as on the drive. Although none of the mainstream operating systems now in use have been optimized to work better with SSDs, some do natively work more efficiently than others, according to storage experts.
