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

When we first looked at Samsung's 950 Pro, we only had the 256GB model for testing; it's time to rectify that omission and see what the additional capacity brings to the party

Toshiba Q300

From a product standpoint the Trion 100 did a good job of keeping pace with the price drops over the past several months, but neither it nor the new Q300 are sufficiently differentiated from the rest of the entry-level market. Now that Toshiba is...

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...

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...

Plextor 512GB M6e

Over the past few years, we've seen two tiers of solid-state drives (SSDs) emerge—conventional drives that utilize the SATA protocol, and a more expensive set of products that rely on PCI Express (PCIe) cards. The PCIe models are often faster than...

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...

The last time we saw the SanDisk Extreme SSD it wasn't exactly “extreme.” It was a fine drive and all, and we awarded it a “what a nice boy” verdict of 8 because it was decent, but it didn't blow off our anti-static leashes or anything. The problem was...
