Corsair Force Series GT 120G

In CrystalDiskMark and AS SSD’s sustained read tests, the Force GT is as fast as any SSD we’ve ever tested. Its ATTO 64KB read and write scores, single-queue-depth 4KB read and writes, and Iometer random write speeds are likewise nearly identical to...

Speedy performance and flashy designs may play well when it comes to consumer-grade storage, but if you're in a business that deals with sensitive customer data, security is your top concern. Data theft is big business, and if you're in a line of work...

Mounted on a Thinkpad X201t, works great under Windows 8.1 pro. Super fast, windows 8 boot at about 15 seconds. Extends the battery usage time well. With the regular HDD, battery usually lasts 3 hr, now is more than 6 hours. So far no problem, hope it...

OCZ RevoDrive X2 Series (OCZSSDPX-1RVDX)

With capacities that range from 100GB to 960GB, the RevoDrive X2 makes a disk-less PC seem almost feasible—if you don’t mind dropping a bundle of money. The 960GB version is a cool $3,300, while the 240GB model we tested goes for $600. It’s a tempting...

Crucial RealSSD C300

There’s no question that on a 6Gb/s SATA port, the Crucial C300 has by far the fastest read speeds we’ve ever seen. And on a 3Gb/s port, it’s nothing to sneeze at. But for sequential and random write speeds, it can’t touch SandForce drives. And its...

I am positively surprised by the new SMI controller and SP610. I have learned to be skeptical about value controllers because in the past the sacrifice in performance has not been worth the relatively small savings in cost. Usually the problem is that...

Intel 730 SSD Series 480G / SSDSC2BP480G4R5

At launch, the new Intel SSD 730 Series makes a very good internal drive choice for your computer, but it'll become a better value when its street price drops below the current suggested retail price.

Samsung's 830 Series SSD is impressively fast, and the company includes excellent extras in the box. Its slim shell makes it a fine fit for laptops, but desktop users will be well-served by this drive, too.

OCZ Agility 4 Series (AGT4-25SAT3)

To date, we have only seen asynchronous NAND in SandForce SSDs and now I can see why. SandForce gets away with asynchronous NAND because it does real-time compression, meaning that it writes less to the NAND and hence there is also less to read. That's...

The important thing to take away from our test results is that you're not going to give up anything by going with an mSATA SSD, at least as far as SandForce based drives are concerned. The ADATA XPG SX300 128GB and Intel 525 Series 180GB deliver the...
