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...

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...
