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

Sandisk Extreme 900 960GB

After testing Sandisk's new Extreme 900 portable SSD, I just have one question for the rest of the industry: What's taking so darn long? We've waited seemingly forever for 10Gbps USB 3.1 devices to arrive, and the Extreme 900's 800MBps performance has...

Lenovo ThinkPad

After around one week of comprehensive testing, we can say that the ThinkPad T460s is more than a boring Skylake update of the old T450s – and already one of the best business notebooks in 2016 in our opinion.

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...

Sandisk SDSSDEXT-240G-G25 Extreme 500

Overall, we like the SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD and would buy one if needed. These products are not for everyone. Advanced thumb drives have increased in capacity and are smaller, but fail to deliver the same high transfer rates of data. The gap...

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...

PNY CS2211 240GB

PNY is clearly targeting the enthusiast/gamer market with this drive. This drive is very fast, short of switching to a PCI-Express you aren’t going to get much faster. With a list price of $159.99 this drive is a good buy. When you consider that it...
