    9460 Broadcom VS Areca 1880ix

    Not sure what's in Linux, but HDTach, AS-SSD, CrystalDiskMark... some don't play well with RAID tho (i.e. they're unusually affected by caching or whatnot). Maybe Brian or someone else would have better suggestions? (also thinking iperf, but that's usually for network...)

    9460 Broadcom VS Areca 1880ix

    Areca is using Broadcom RoC's so the UI should be the only difference. That and maybe driver tuning.

    14TB performance reviews

    Seagate Exos product page has the press release up but it's still not added to the main product stack, so I suspect a few more weeks/months...

    LSI Logic MegaRAID SAS 9271-4i

    Can you manually force it back to WB? Are you getting repeated warnings for BBU or was it just this once?

    Seagate 2tb hardrive not working...at all.

    If you truly value the data and cannot take any further risks... Time to pay for professional data recovery. Drivesavers, FADV, Ontrack, etc... pricing can range into the thousands.

    Affordable & reliable RAID 1 controller

    Intel RAID isn't exactly what Brian was referring to. What OS are you guys running?

    Samsung 860 QVO SSD Review Discussion

    Any comparisons to SATA TLC drives, given the price points, especially on DRAM-less SATA TLC drives, are currently similar?
  8. Not that I'm seeing. Does not appear to be in the retail channel anywhere. It's been out for 9 months, I think?

    WD Black WD4005FZBX

    Quite a few drive makers have done periodic thermal or drive lube re-calibration in the past, seeing it on the Gold line doesn't surprise me, but the Black line does disappoint me a little if this is really widespread, since that's supposed to be a desktop drive... Even during sequential reads and writes would be very, very surprising tho...

    Toshiba P300 Warranty

    Where did you purchase the drive from? Was it sold as new, retail box? Was it sold as new OEM (bare drive)? Was it a system pull or sold in some other fashion? It's very possible the drive is new old stock and hence is past warranty, although the manufacturer date would seem to indicate against that. It's hence more likely the drive was sold as an OEM product without any warranty at all. If the drive was purchased new retail box then something's fishy...

    Lexar Announces 512GB A2 microSD Card

    Ooo, tempting. Price, while high, actually isn't that bad for a very top of the line flash card...

    Eaton 5P1550GR UPS Review Discussion

    Is there a 110v version available? Looks like it's only 220v? Also there's no mention of runtime... or is that what the (unitless) "battery rating" is supposed to be? If so, since battery rating is unitless, could we get that explained? It's not immediately obvious...
  13. Is a Crucial P1 review in the works? It's the other QLC NVMe SSD...
  14. Most end users honestly don't care about performance. I could imagine swinging a $5 upcharge but even that could be tough...
  15. Uhhhh this thread is more than 2 years old. Just sayin'.
