    Water Panther (WP) drives

    Starting a thread on this. They are another white labeling company, but seem to be far more... desirable (?) than GoHardDrive. Looks like their drives come with a 2 year warranty. Purchased two 12TB SATA drives from them with Costco VISA (bumping warranty to 4 years). Here is an exact link to...

    Just wanted to share some information with the wonderful folks on STH forums. I stumbled on this about nine months ago by accident digging in aliexpress. There are adapters being sold by two Chinese domestic market companies that allow multiple NVMe drives on the same slot without requiring...

    SE316M1 firmware?

    Anyone have the firmware for these? I know this thing is basically a boat anchor because of its age, but I do actually have a working one that has R02 (2009) firmware. I've read there is R02 (2011) firmware or newer through a lot of googling, but haven't found a way to get it. I think this is...

    poor nvme performance on broadcom 9440-8i / lenovo 530-8i?

    I got a pair of these cards and one of the overpriced LSI cables to make it work with NVMe. I've got it flashed to latest firmware and have a P3500 2TB drive hooked to it. Before using it on this tri-mode HBA, I used it on a PCIe card converter and I was getting 3GB/s reads. This broadcom card...

    HP Gen8 (and newer trays): Can you use hot plug in non?

    UPDATE: The smart trays do work in the non hot plug slots (tested this). No extra force required. I'd be willing to bet that the dumb trays fit the smart slots as well, but I'm not spending $20-25 on a dumb tray to find out. The smart trays are cheaper ($10-15). So they have these new...

    OCZ Website

    WTF happened to it? There's almost no information about their SSDs, and there isn't any information on there about their enterprise SSDs. No legacy info, no data sheets. Did I miss something? Wasn't it fine a few months ago? I remember being able to read data sheets on the Deneva 2 R and when I...

    Not paid to shill for them, nor have they ever contacted me. I used to use a program called Ad Muncher that used to kill off ads that things like Adblock Plus couldn't touch (it just flat out was more effective at doing its job). The developer has since made the product free, but that may have...
