Samsung SSD 750 EVO

Samsung’s 750 EVO is the cream of the TLC-based SSD crop. It costs a bit more than the competition, but to my mind, the smooth performance is worth the extra dough. Especially as RAPID can give your computer a feel that’s otherwise only achievable with...

Sandisk Extreme 900 960GB

Usually you have to make a few compromises when buying an SSD. Either you sacrifice some speed for greater capacity, minimal features, and a better price, or you plunk down a lot of cash. The Oyen Digital MiniPro 3.1, our other Editors' Choice, is a...

Samsung SSD 950 Pro

So far, Intel is the only manufacturer that has produced an enthusiast drive using the U.2 connector to provide PCIe x4 to a 2.5" drives. U.2 support is far less common than M.2, but the next time Samsung wants to introduce a major performance boost,...

Samsung 840 EVO Series (MZ-7TE)

This Samsung 840 EVO (500GB) is the SSD equivalent of having one's cake and eating it, too. When the Samsung 840 and 840 Pro launched, there was justified concern about the drive's use of TLC NAND, and a significant performance gap between the two....

Crucial MX100

Shortly put, the MX100's task is to replace the M500 and it does that brilliantly. While the MX100's main goal is to lower the price by using smaller lithography NAND, it also provides a minor increase in performance over the M500 and offers the same...

Toshiba Q300 Pro

In this market, to sell products you need to either have the fastest SSD or offer the best value. No one wants to be the guy who spent too much and didn't get enough for it. The best SSD shouldn't have to wait for another model to enter end-of-life...

Samsung 860 PRO 512GB 2.5" Serial ATA-600 (MZ-76P512B/EU)

Ultimately the Samsung 860 PRO is a commendable technical achievement; Samsung has pushed the SATA III interface to its limit by having it serve such a powerful SSD, and it's entirely possible we won't see a better desktop SATA SSD ever made. But as...

Kingston Hyperx Savage SHSS37A Series

When it comes to overclocking, one could say the Kingston kit we are reviewing today is quite... savage. Running at stock DDR4-2666 15-15-15-35 1.20V, I loosened up the timings to 17-17-17-39, and bumped the voltage right up to the 1.35V limit to see...

Samsung SM951

All in all, the SSD 750 remains as the best option for very IO intensive workloads, but for a more typical enthusiast the SM951-NVMe provides better performance, although not substantially better than the AHCI version. If you need an SSD today, I...
