Samsung T3

Conclusion The Samsung Portable SSD T3 is an excellent choice if you need to carry or copy a library's worth of data in a device that will fit in your front pants pocket. It is certainly pricey, but if you're a power user, you will want nothing less,...

Samsung 950 Pro

Will it replace the Samsung SSD 850 series? I think not. The SATA 3, especially the 850 EVO version is still “the best bang for the buck”.

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...

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...

There are so many reasons why the M550 could be one of the best SSDs in the market. It has the best-in-class encryption support (along with Samsung 840 EVO) and it's also one of the only consumer-grade drives with power loss protection. Heck, it even...
