Fourth round of MacNN's testing on OS X Trim implementation concludes

09/28, 10:32am

Final round of testing once again shows no issues with Apple's Trim

Round four of MacNN's SSD testing is complete -- and this round will likely wrap up the testing, for reasons we will discuss within. In this test, we again took four SSDs requested by users to task, including an OWC model, to see how well they all did in a time-compressed environment with Apple's OS X 10.10.4 and 10.10.5 Trim implementation.


MacNN launches testing of heat on unpowered SSD data retention

08/31, 12:09pm

Long term work focuses on depleted, factory new 840evo SSD line

Earlier this year, there was some controversy about heat and SSD data life when left unpowered. We don't think this is a major problem for most users, as a SSD will be powered for essentially its entire operational life -- but it may be an issue going forward, as users collect older technologies for re-use, given the generally long life of Apple hardware. So, in conjunction with our SSD Trim testing, we've started real-life testing of unpowered, depleted SSDs, exposed to high temperatures for extended periods of time to check on both data retention, as well as drive survivability.

Another round of SSD Trim testing complete, no issues found

08/07, 9:38am

Radeon, Crucial, Patriot SSDs tested in this round

Round three of MacNN's SSD testing is complete. In this test, we took four non-Samsung SSDs requested by users to task, to see how well they did in a time-compressed environment with Apple's OS X 10.10.4 Trim implementation. So far, so good with all eight SSD's we've beaten on through artificial use patterns -- but with a single minor caveat.


MacNN testing concludes on Samsung SSDs and Apple Trim implementation

07/24, 1:00pm

No problems noted with the drive line after 800TB of data moved

When Apple released OS X 10.10.4, alongside the offering came an implementation of Trim technology to clean up and potentially speed SSD write speeds over time. Users choosing to activate the feature, previously only on Apple-provided SSDs were greeted with a dire warning about the potential for data loss should the feature go bad in any way. After a good first pass, MacNN has concluded its second round of testing on a drive series thought to be problematic with the command -- the Samsung 840 and 850 drives, both in pro and EVO lines.

07/02, 1:30pm

Latest OS X version offers preliminary support for third-party drives

Although many are celebrating the long-awaited arrival of Trim support for third-party SSD storage that can be enabled by users, Apple's implementation of it should be considered preliminary, and comes with an unusual and strongly-worded warning that offers no support if the user should experience problems. In addition, some popular SSD models, notably Samsung's 840 and 850 lines, may be subject to a data-destroying bug if Trim is activated.

Hands On: Disk Sensei 1.0 (OS X)

04/29, 5:09pm

Fast, detailed hard disk monitoring utility

There's nothing better than checking out the state of your hard disk, and we've all spent many happy hours twiddling with a drive instead of getting on with our work. Yet those disks that we forget about will go wrong just about as certainly as they will fill up. Maybe they won't go wrong today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life. Usually that's the reason why you should have backups, and it still is, but it's now also a good reason to try out Disk Sensei. It's a quick and thorough utility that reports on the current health of your drives, as well as then taking steps to keep them running well.

Review: VisionTek 120GB USB Pocket SSD

12/13, 3:42pm

Can a Sandforce-based SSD thumb drive be used as a portable OS drive?

USB flash drives dealt the death blow to both the floppy and Zip drives. While still faster than either of the old removable media, speeds are still generally measured in tens of megabytes per second, rather than something more speedy -- despite being on the new USB 3.0 bus. VisionTek is one of a few companies offering SSD-class speeds in a removable package -- in this case, the simply-named VisionTek USB Pocket SSD line of thumb drive-sized SSDs. We've lived with a 120GB version for a while, and have used it for various tasks, including as the carrier for a laptop operating system. See what we thought about it.

Review: MaxUpgrades 512GB SSD for 2012 Retina MacBook pro

11/13, 10:24am

Drive brings speed, convenient upgrade for 2012 and 2013 RMBP, iMac models

Apple's Retina line of MacBook Pro notebooks have been impressive, right from their debut in 2012. Thinner than the previous model, they incorporate all of Apple's leading technologies in a slim OS X computing device. The slimness comes with a price: upgradeability is strictly limited. If you didn't buy what you needed initially, you're mostly out of luck. A few vendors have popped up to partially address the situation, among them, MaxUpgrades. The company has recently introduced an aftermarket way to expand 2012 iMac and Retina MacBook Pro computer SSD storage up to 1TB, and we've been living with the 512GB version of their aftermarket storage upgrade for a while -- see what we thought of it!

Review: Patriot Supersonic Phoenix USB 3.0 drive

10/08, 1:20am

Pocket-sized solid state drive offers quick reads, falls just short of stated writes

USB thumb drives aren't the end all solutions for data transfer and traveling needs. Sometimes people want something with a little more to them, opting for larger external drives that offer greater capacities, and in some cases faster transfer speeds. One example of a bigger, faster drive is the Patriot Supersonic Phoenix. The drive is offered in a pocket-sized format that is more like a portable hard drive than a USB flash drive. But would the Supersonic Phoenix be something that consumers flock to with its SSD-like features, or should they opt for the smaller thumb drive? Find out in our review.


Review: Crucial MX100 256GB SATA-3 SSD

09/11, 11:00am

Crucial shooting for both price, performance in one package

While the price-per-gigabyte ratio for magnetic platter-based hard drives can't be beat, the speed that a SSD brings to the table for any computer is unmistakeable. The latest batch of SSDs have a variety of technological or price improvements, but usually there is a trade-off between technical improvement and price. The one standout that claims both is the Crucial MX100 series of drives. Electronista has been living with one as a primary boot drive in a production machine for a while now. How did it fare in day-to-day operations? Check our our review and find out.
