An Alternative to SSD – Toshiba SSHD Review

Posted on 29 August 2013

If your computer is running on a Hard Disk Drive and you want to improve its performance, you may want to look into upgrading the internal drive. Doing so without spending too much is now very easy with the new SSHD internal storage introduced by Toshiba.

Features
The Toshiba SSHD can be used with any laptop and desktop and it also has special provisions to be used with specific models of Ultrabooks. The SSHD has solid state storage of 8GB on it and has the ability of boosting your computer’s performance. After the installation of the SSHD your computer will resume from sleep, boot up and run general applications with greater efficiency and speed.

A computer running on a regular hard disk drive takes a little over a minute to boot up. Once the SSHD is installed in the computer, at an average the computer boots up in under thirty seconds. In addition, applications such as Microsoft Excel, Word and web browsers will also require a shorter launch time. The only thing that the Toshiba SSHD lacks a little in is the data transfer speed. However, when it comes to boot time performance and application performance, it delivers the same speed as an SSD.

The SSHD has an amazing feature which is the main reason for its ability to significantly enhance your computer’s performance. It comes with an algorithm that transfers data from the spinning part of the drive to the SSD section. The data swap is dependent on how frequently the data is used. Rarely-used data will be stored onto the spinning section. On the other hand frequently-used data is stored on the SSD section.

Specifications
The Toshiba SSHD comes in 4 capacities. You can purchase it in 320GB, 500GB, 750GB or 1TB storage variants. The SSHD features three connector ports, SATA, SATA 2 and SATA 3. The drive has a 32MB cache memory and the spinning speed is 5,400 rpm.

Price
The 1TB variant of the Toshiba SSHD is available at $199 and the 500GB model is for $159.

Thumb Drive Charity

Posted on 12 December 2006

Inveneo is collecting old small thumb drives (16mb) to give to charity. Since we all know a 16mb anything wouldn’t even hold our collection of Britney Spears upskirt photos it sounds like a pretty good idea. Donate and help out someone. [ via Gizmodo ]
