Intel DC S3500

All in all I've been pleased with Intel's work in the enterprise SSD space. Most interesting to me is just how aggressive Intel has been in terms of enterprise SSD pricing. The S3500 shows up at well under $1.50/GB, and consumer drives aren't that far...

Samsung 2TB 2.5" SATA 2000GB

The power consumption statistics of the F4EG were not too different from other hard disks in the market, which isn't brilliant, considering this hard disk's positioning in the 'green' segment. Still, the improvement in noise reduction and reduced heat...

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...

Corsair Force Series 3

I may sound like a broken record but all SandForce SSDs except Intel's are more or less the same. While there are small variations in performance, the big picture is still alike. You have a few NAND choices but most manufacturers offer SSDs based on...

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 Out of all the models listed there are only two worth considering, either because the others were superseded or...

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.

It started out in my Lenovo S10-3 and I eventually moved it to my Lenovo X120e. I purchased this SSD to protect myself from mechanical failures,. Most of my past HDDs in laptops have ended dying and clicking.

Adata XPG SX900

SandForce sets aside more NAND capacity than most controllers for spare area. While Intel, Marvell, Samsung and others default to ~7% of total NAND capacity for spare area, SandForce is almost double that. The difference boils down to RAISE,...

Samsung MZ-7PC128D

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.
