Buffalo MiniStation Thunderbolt SSD

In the world of portable storage generally drives use USB 2.0, some use USB 3.0 and although they are an option products which use either eSATA and Firewire are much rarer. It is easy to understand why though, with USB being the most available...

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...

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.

Intel X25-V Series

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.

Kingston SH103S3B/90G Hyperx 3K

With OCZ intent on moving as much volume to its in-house Indilinx controllers as possible , SandForce ( now LSI ) needed to expand to additional partners. OCZ has strong control over the channel so SandForce needed to turn to multiple partners to...

OCZ Agility 4 Series (AGT4-25SAT3)

For the last few years, OCZ's consumer SSD lineup has primarily consisted of two models: Vertex and Agility. The history of these two goes all the way back to 2009 when OCZ realized that they can differentiate their SSDs by equipping them with...

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...

A-DATA S599

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...

Intel Pro 2500 Series

The Intel SSD Pro 2500 is designed for Wintel business computing, where its Opal 2.0 compliance may interest IT managers, however this security feature is not unique to business SSDs and can be found on, for example, Crucial and Samsung drives too at...

OCZ Storage Solutions ARC100-25SAT3-480G

While the ARC 100 isn't the best performing drive money can buy, it's one of the most affordable. In real-world use, such as application loading times and system boot times, you'll only find slim differences between this drive and one that costs a lot...

I really like the idea of mSATA solid state drives. While they have not really caught on that much on the desktop market now that M.2 is here, they have great applications in laptops and smaller form factor PCs like the Gigabyte BRIX that we recently...

Starting with the build quality of the PNY XLR8 Pro we have a drive which uses one of the thickest and therefore most robust feeling cases around. It really does feel solid while maintaining a reasonably low weight. Inside we find a decent level of...

PNY CS2211

The new cut-down S10C controller used in the 120GB and 240GB models do not seem to have brought any new performance limitations relative to the full-size S10-X used in the 480GB models and all previous Phison S10 drives we've tested. It's a...

I too was wary of this unknown-to-me company, however I have experienced no issues with this drive in over a year of use. I'm using it as my boot drive for an older model MacPro tower and have been happy so far.

It's been 3 years now, start up takes 8 seconds from post. I wish I had gone bigger but 3 years ago prices were higher. I'm upgrading to a 500GB soon for cheaper than what this is now. The only reason is size. I'll end up running my programs off of it...
