Samsung 470 Series MZ-5PA

Samsung has come out of the gate strong with the 470 Series, its first retail SSD, which offers performance on par with current-gen SandForce-powered drives. Furthermore, its enclosure is the prettiest we’ve seen on an SSD, though that hardly matters...

OCZ Agility 2 Series

This was my second SSD review and just like the first one, I am duly impressed. The speed increase in Photoshop alone would justify the $200+ price tag that accompanies the Agility 2 line. There is only one con I feel I should list, and it is not a...

I am sure no one doubts that second-generation SandForce controllers are perhaps the best platform for modern SSDs in terms of performance. Thanks to on-the-fly data compression algorithms, SandForce-based SSDs with fast flash memory have always...

Corsair Nova Series V128

On the first page, we spent quite a few words on exploring the various model SSDs Corsair sells on the market, and for one simple reason. Out of all the models listed there are only two worth considering, either because the others were superseded or...

Elgato 1TD108801001

If you can afford it and you can justify the cost, you’d be a fool not to invest in this portable little speed demon.

Kingston SSDNow V100 Series SV100S2

We can see from our tests that the Kingston SSDNow V100 and Patriot Torqx 2 128 GB solid state drives perform similarly on the whole, even though there were a few instances where one drive did have a clear performance superiority. In the sequential...

OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid Series

Ideally you’ll be using the RevoDrive Hybrid as a bootable drive, because after installing Windows 7, you’ll need to download the Dataplex software from OCZ’s website as well. Dataplex, however, can only be downloaded once you enter the CDkey that...

At nearly 10 times the price of a normal HDD, the ADATA S599 SSD is surely for early adopters. The performance benefits of SSD technology are currently more in access and seek times than in actual speed. However the ADATA S599 is lighter, noiseless and...

This SSD works great and I was surprised how small it was. I dare say it's smaller than laptop memory! But man, it was sure a whirlwind to install! After pouring through tutorials and forums post, it took me around a day and a half before Windows 7...

Kingston Hyperx Savage SHSS37A Series

With great 4-corner performance and high compressible data results the HyperX Savage 240GB can look really good on paper. Once you get away from insignificant tests the performance picture becomes clear. We eagerly await Phison's new performance...

Exceptionally packaged and a breeze to install, it does seem to run a bit hotter than the original MacBook drive I replaced it with, but nothing to worry about as it seems to be working well and nice and fast.

This completed my build making sure that I shouldn't have to make anymore updates for a while. The only con was (as someone previously stated) it DOES NOT come with a tray to mount it. I installed around 3 games on it.(Devil May Cry, Assassins Creed 3,...

What can I say? As PCIE based NVMe SSD, the speed of this thing blows your regular SATA based SSD away! At over 1.5GB/s for read, anything you can run off it can and will start up almost instantly (unless other part of your system is slow). Use it as a...
