Way for resellers to instantly get 'at least $20k' of work.
A team comprised of Facebook engineers and Carnegie Mellon researchers has published a study covering flash memory failure rates over a four-year period, with data collected from SSDs in Facebook's servers. The paper doesn't tie the statistics gathered to particular makes and models of drives, but...

It's time to get NAS-ty. D-Link has unveiled the DNS-340L ShareCenter, a 4-bay NAS box aimed at home users and small businesses. This storage appliance features four hot-swappable 3.5" SATA bays, and they can be RAIDed together in 0, 1, 5, 10, and 1+0...
Seagate's Samsung storage division has announced two new 4TB external hard drives, touted as the world's first 4TB externals based on a single 2.5" disk. The M3 features a matte-looking finish with a kind of faceted pattern, while the the P3 goes for a glossier, more metallic appearance.
A new bug may be present in the firmware of some Samsung SSDs. An engineer from search provider Algolia has written up a blog post detailing his team's saga of troubleshooting data corruption in some of their servers. Ultimately, Algolia narrowed down the problem to an apparent bug in...
Looking for some discounted PC hardware to tide you over until the next batch of daily deals from the Steam Summer Sale? I thought you'd never ask... Acer's K272HULbmiidp doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but maybe it should be on everyone's lips. This 27" IPS monitor delivers a 2560x1440...
HGST first revealed its 10TB cold storage drive back in September. The 3.5" mechanical unit combines helium-filled internals with Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) to hit a new capacity milestone, and it's finally ready for prime time. Customers will start getting production drives in a couple of...
Adorama has a sweet storage deal just for TR readers. The e-tailer is offering Samsung's 850 EVO 250GB SSD along with Far Cry 4 for only $97.99 with coupon code TECHRDEALS. That's less than what Amazon, Newegg, and TigerDirect are charging for the drive on its own. Shipping is...
I'm tempted to call the GeForce GTX 980 Ti the deal of the week, because it's practically a Titan X for $350 less. But only a couple of re-stickered reference designs are in stock online, and they're $10-20 more than the MSRP. Notice how I snuck in an...
Adata showed a collection of new SSDs at Computex this week, including a couple of unnamed products with PCIe Gen3 interfaces. The top model is based on a Marvell "Eldora" controller with quad PCIe lanes and NVMe support—probably the 88SS1093 chip introduced last summer. The controller is paired...
Chinese and British vendors both celebrate Aussie solutions provider.
Type-C ports are making USB drives interesting again. The latest to tap into the reversible standard is Kingston's DataTraveler microDuo 3C, which pairs the new port with a chunky Type-A connector for broader compatibility. Announced at Computex, the drive is scheduled to...
Following split from Megaport.
I feel a little bit sorry for SATA Express. The next-gen storage interface garnered some attention last year when it appeared on droves of 9-series Intel motherboards, but drives based on the standard are still missing in action, leaving most of those ports unoccupied. That apparently didn't sit...
Memory giant Micron started sampling its first 16-nm NAND nearly two years ago. Those chips have a two-bit MLC configuration, and they've now been joined by a three-bit TLC variant built on the same process node. The TLC version has the same 16GB capacity as its MLC forebear, but...
Homegrown Perth manufacturer scoring major clients.
No reason given for exit of 10-year veteran.
Since 2001, a company called Nantero has been working on making non-volatile storage with carbon nanotubes. The technology is called NRAM, and it's designed to deliver DRAM-like speeds with unlimited endurance and low power consumption. That combination sounds too good to be true,...
SanDisk seems to be making a point of cramming enormous amounts of storage into impressively tiny form factors. We saw a 200GB microSD card from the flash storage maker a couple months ago, and the trend continues with the 128GB Ultra Fit USB 3.0 flash drive released today...
Meet the players in Gartner's 2015 Magic Quadrant.
I've got nothing for this week's intro, so let's get straight to the deals: We like Asus' ZenBook UX305 a lot. The 13.3" ultraportable has a beautiful 1080p IPS display, a fast Core M processor, and a great base spec that includes 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. Right now,...
Hardware makers are gearing up to showcase new products at Computex next week, and some are already providing previews of what's in store. OCZ, for example, has announced that it's bringing a new entry-level SSD to the show. The Trion 100 Series will be the company's first SSD to use...
We're all used to the idea of an SSD plugging into a SATA port or M.2 slot by now, but the notion of non-volatile storage that can slide into a RAM slot is still a little weird. We've seen one such product from SanDisk, and there may soon be...
