  1. Hello everyone. Currently I have a 50 GB SSD from 2011. It is in good shape it performs well until now. But it is so low on space. I only have around 1 GB of storage left which gives me headache every once in a while because it goes lower than that until I clean up the PC with CCleaner. Is there a good way of migrating my OS and all the files on my SSD to new SSD? Note: I have ubuntu installed on my HDD and I believe the boot file is not on the SSD itself. So I don't know if this changes anything about how to migrate the OS. One last thing, which SSD do you recommend? I want to get something that is 240 - 480 GB. Any recommendations are welcomed. Thanks in advance.

  3. Hi, I just bought a fresh cheap 120GB SSD which I already installed Windows in it, when suddenly had the urge to buy a really affordable 250GB SSD (need the extra storage for Uni) which I have paid and received. Is there steps that I could format the 120GB SSD and replace and install Windows in the 250GB SSD in a safer easier way? Its my first time building PC, Thanks!
  4. Crucial's been marketing their BX100's like crazy. They're basically budget SSD's, and their first SSD product that uses the Silicon Motion 2246EN controller (with 16nm 128Gbit NAND), It also has no M-class features like hardware-accelerated encryption or SLC caching. No official reviews out, and it's not priced like a "budget" SSD, either. Don't get me wrong, I love Crucial's SSD's. Most of my SSD's are from Crucial. I just don't like where they're going.
  5. hi all its been some time that i have been on here. this is my gaming rig that i have been working on in 2014. can u all rank my gaming rig, and give in put/feed bake on the weak components upgrand options ? Case/Tower, Antec GX700 Monitor, 1 ASUS VS247 1920 by 1080- 1080p GPU, EVGA 980 sc MoBo, ASRock z87 Extreme 6 PSU, COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M2 RSA00-SPM2D3-US 1000W Ram, G.SKILL Sniper serirs 2X4 8gs 2133 CPU, Intel i5 4670K 3.4 ghz over clocked to 4.3 GPU, Cooler, CORSAIR Hydro Series H110 SSD, Samsung 830 128 G 2-500g WD HHD Head set, Razer Tiamat 7.1 Gaming Mouse, Mad Catz R.A.T.7 Key board, Steelseries Merc Stealth OS, Windows 7 Professional 64 bit Yamaha 5.1 surrond sound i am thinking a better Monitor is in need maybe something with G-SYNC to set this setup off?
  6. I ordered an ncase m1 while they were available since it was a limited 1000 production run. http://www.ncases.com/v2/m1.php It's an amazing mini-itx case incredibly small yet has all the power of an atx mid size tower. I bought it awhile ago and I'm thinking of doing the build. I'm not using any 2.5" or 3.5" storage (By going m2 only it opens up all the vents for a 120mm fan for maximum cooling). The mini itx asus board has an m2 slot on the back of the board. The only 1TB m2 SSD that I'm aware of is the Samsung sm951 but it's an oem only product and it might be hard to procure. I really need a 1TB m2 ssd since it's the only storage on the entire system. I also need it to be a pci-e version not a sata version. The build is something like this: i5-5670k (broadwell unlocked i5) Asus Z97 mini itx mobo GTX 880 Maxwell Corsair H100i CPU cooler Gelid GC extreme TIM Aerocool DS 120mm fans Noctua 92mm exhaust fan 1TB m2 SSD pci-e interface Silverstone 450 watt SFX PSU Panasonic Slim slot load blu ray writer Gskill 2400Mhz 2x8GB ram Yes I know broadwell and maxwell arent out yet but they will both be out before the end of the year and im in no rush to finish this I'm typing this from an x58 i7-980x radeon 5870 system so i'm not hurting badly to finish the new system but I want a portable mini itx system to add to my collection. I'm just unsure if I will be able to get the storage drive i need. Any ideas where I can find the samsung sm951 or another 1tb pci-e m2 ssd?
  7. Dear all, I am pleased to bring you, The Honest, Most detailed and Practical review of Seagate 1TB LAPTOP SSHD. The Prologue- One fine morning, I wake up to discover that my Primary Desktop computer was dead. All said and done, I had made my mind that this time, my primary computer will be a Laptop, and that did happen. Excitement aside, Moving to laptop also had a few let-downs, and the major one was HDD performance. My desktop PC had some very nice Black edition Drives in RAID 0. As a result, I was able to get SUBSTAINED File copy speeds of 250MB/s and Burst speeds of over 400MB/s. Moving to Laptop's Non-RAID , slow Storage made me feel very claustrophobic. The buy- I had an eye on Seagate's new Hybrid Disks since long. I have spent better part of my Sundays reading reviews and browsing the forums about this revolutionary product. However the earlier models were just 500GB (Seagate Momentus XT) and price was hard to digest. After a few months, Snapdeal offered me to buy the 1TB SSHD model for just a shade over 8k. I booked it immediately and the product was delivered within 3 days. Mind you, seagate did not send the retail package with retail BOX and manual, But an OEM product in Antistatic Bag , Brown cardboard and some bubble wrap. Perhaps the reason it was so cheap. Install- (windows 7 Ultimate 64) I was of thought that i'd restore my System image and be Happy within 20 Minutes. Wrong. After burning the Midnight oil and many failed installs, I figured out that Seagate SSHD is not friendly to Clone or Image installs. Take my word for it. You WILL need a fresh install for it to work, and Internet if full of such episodes. Performance- So here's what you people were waiting for. I Started copying my well over 800GB of DATA. I started in the Morning at 7.30 and the copy had suceeded by night 9pm. Quite longer than I had expected but system was rock stable. The copy was from SONY 1TB USB 3 HDD which gave speeds of around 45~65 MB/s. The Maximum Temperature I had seen was 46.c after a full days of Excersize. Perhaps the performance will open up after the Drive LEARNS usage patterns and caches them. And soon enough, its true after a couple of Restarts, the system boots to desktop in 22 sec. Regular programs like Opera Browser, Messenger, Open office, Desktop widgets, system monitor pop up in a blink. I am finally getting the pleasure of High end RAID array on a laptop. However, the substained speeds and long file transfers still remain a dream. Benchmarks- I have attatched ATTO disk mark screenshots for you. At first I was astonished to see bursts of 450MB/s. As result I ran the benchmark 3~5 times, but the results were consistent. I guess that the SSHD uses pretty high quality NAND cache with Read speeds over 400MB/s. A pat to Seagate on this one. Summary- What I liked- System Boots in 22.sec Regular Programs Pop out in no time Cool operation compared to previous Gen Momentus XT 7200 RPM Less power consumption and decent battery life. Very snappy system FEEL What I didn't like- Non cached Transfers fall back to usual 70~90 MB/s of traditional laptop HDD Spindle speeds of only 5400 RPM opposed to Previous Gen 7200 RPM. Quite Expensive in India compared to USA and Europe. OEM product available compared to Retail BOX as advertised by Seagate. Should you buy one? HELL YEAH!

  8. HI! I have never have been familiar with notebooks but I bought one for office use (it's able to game a bit as well), an Acer V552G All this to ask : How of a pain is it to swap the sold HDD in said notebook for a SSD (I don't mind about space) knowing that I only have a USB stick with the Windows 8 installation on it. I must add that I bought full retail Windows DVD for my other computers at home. So doing the swap, would I need a store tech to install it for me (knowing I only got Windows 8 on that specific USB stick), could I simply install Windows with that stick, or would I need to format and install Win 7 from one of my DVD's and then upgrade to Win 8? Thanks!
