NETGEAR ProSafe GS752TXS Smart Switch Review

The NETGEAR ProSafe GS752TXS is a 52-port gigabit stackable Smart Switch designed specifically to work with the ever-growing adaptation of 10-gigabit servers. Its predecessor, the GS752TS, is no stranger in the StorageReview labs. We have used the first-gen NETGEAR Smart Switch in many of our NAS reviews due to its reliability and consistent performance. In this review, we will be focusing on its successor, the GS752TXS, NETGEAR’s 2nd Generation Gigabit Stackable Smart Switch that focuses on scalability, reliability, and performance for growing small- and medium-sized businesses looking for an affordable and easy-to-manage Smart Switch solution.

HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System Review

The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System is a backup solution that allows small or medium-sized businesses to buy as they grow; it makes use of interchangeable disk cartridges (available in 320GB, 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities) that can be archived as backups become outdated. The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System backs up data at hard drive speeds and is specced to restore critical files at approximately 360GB/hr using the USB 3.0 interface, which is significantly faster than what alternate solutions like cloud services can provide. Small businesses can purchase new cartridges on an as needed basis rather than having to invest in a dedicated backup appliance or other solutions that are overkill for small server environments.

Samsung SSD 845DC EVO Review

The Samsung SSD 845DC EVO line of drives are specifically designed to provide high performance and reliability--though cost-effective--solutions for today’s increasing data traffic in servers and data centers. Samsung indicates its new family of SSDs will deliver a very high level of sustained performance as well as consistent low latency over the life of the drive, giving it the ability to meet demands of increasing data handling. Under the hood, the 845DC Evo is equipped with Samsung's 19nm Toggle 3bit NAND, making it the first enterprise-class SSD to use TLC NAND. This new use of NAND combined with its MEX controller allows the Samsung 845DC EVO to be one more energy-efficient drives on the market, all the while maintaining the excellent performance.

Seagate Enterprise Capacity 6TB 3.5 SAS HDD Review (V.4)

The Seagate Enterprise Capacity SAS 6TB hard drive comes with a 7,200 RPM spindle speed and can be paired with either a 6Gb/s or 12Gb/s SAS interface. We recently reviewed the sibling 6TB SATA drive; this review will survey the drive with a 12Gb/s SAS interface. The SAS configuration is also available in 4TB and 2TB capacities, and Seagate boasts this drive as the fastest available nearline HDD, which they proved to be true with the SATA version. All that's left to discover is what effect the interface has on the drive, all other mechanics are the same eighth generation technology.
