Crucial M550

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...

SanDisk Extreme II

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...
