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...

HyperX SHFS37A-Z/120G

I bought an initial pair of these to use in some benchmarks where I did not want potential drive differences to influence the results. One is directly attached to a motherboard under test, and the second is in a separate machine for network tests. This...

Toshiba 256GB Q Series Pro PC Internal Solid State Drive (HDTS325XZSTA)

Awesome! I put Windows 7 on this bad boy, and my other files on a regular hard drive. My boot up time went from something like 3-4 minutes to under a minute from power on. I didn't bother with porting over old Win 7, I wanted a clean start, so glad I...

Kingston SH103S3B/90G Hyperx 3K

Looking at the available technical specifications, the only item missing is the detail on the 3K 25nm Intel MLC NAND flash. This NAND flash is endurance rated for 3,000 program/erase (or P/E) cycles

Kingston SKC300S37A/180G KC300

I would have speced out the E50 or E100 series drives had it been apparent these were not truly enterprise grade. Be warned when specing the E series of SSDs, they must be run in a RAID environment or you will need to change your system's settings to...

My first hard drive failure in ~20 years of building and tinkering with PCs. I have ~10 platter based HDDs that are 5-7 years old still running fine. My second SSD ever failed on me within a year.

I thought this looked like a good buy, but when I was at a store that sold them during a sale I could have got them for less.

Crucial MX200 / CT500MX200SSD1

If one were to look at why Crucial was selling boatloads of their MX100 SSDs in the last little while, it was because it was based on a formula that made sense: Decent speed, great price, and top notch reliability. Adding some enterprise features like...

I have an old Dell Vostro 1400 that the hard drive was acting up. It really takes a long time to boot up or do anything in that old computer. I think it's only dual core. I replaced the hard drive with this one, but I went from 500gb to 128 gb. The...

Samsung XP941 256GB M.2 NGFF PCIe Solid state drive SSD

$120.00 for 120GB of SSD memory, ok. Now this is not SATA I,II,III or mSATA it is PCIe Gen 2 using a M2 socket. So I'm continuing to work our how to get it to use x4 lanes and be the 10Gb/s it could be. I would estimate it works as fast as SATA III...
