Intel X25-M Mainstream Solid State Drive

The X25-M remains a rock-solid choice for SSDs, and its read speeds and random-write response times are second to none. But in sustained-write speeds, it’s no match for the Patriot Torqx and its peers. But hey, the 160GB X25-M is $.10/GB cheaper than...

Transcend TS750GSJ25M2 Storejet 25M2

Although the Transcend SSD18M solid-state drive is astronomically expensive, the price is balanced with its tiny footprint and impressive transfer speeds. It's easy to geek out on the beauty of the design, and even though hardcore nerds will love its...

Adata Premier SP610

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...

Plextor M6e Series

Over the past few years, we've seen two tiers of solid-state drives (SSDs) emerge—conventional drives that utilize the SATA protocol, and a more expensive set of products that rely on PCI Express (PCIe) cards. The PCIe models are often faster than...

This Verbatim external solid state drive is small (about the size of a credit card, only thicker). It was plug and go on my PC, TV, or anything with a USB port. It's amazing that it can hold a couple dozen movies with no moving parts!

Crucial M4 256GB Solid State Drive

As our technology advances, consumers continually demand more from manufactures. Make it faster, make it lighter, make it smaller, and of course do it all at the same time. You would think that we would have hit a limit by now, or at least slowed down,...

OCZ Vector 256GB SSD

In the following table, we present all the test values in comparison to the Samsung SSD 840 Pro, the Intel SSD 520 and the Vertex 4. On average, the 840 Pro just barely supersedes the Vector 256 GB. You can clearly see the improvement in performance in...

OCZ RevoDrive 3 Series

Earlier RevoDrives were marketed to enthusiasts, but you’ll find the RevoDrive3 X2 under the “Workstation” category on OCZ’s website—with good reason: SandForce drives are already optimized for frequent small-file random reads and writes at high queue...

Seagate's 600 Pro is the professional (read: workstation/server) version of the standard Seagate 600 SSD. Both the 600 and the 600 Pro sport the same memory controller—a Link_A_Media (LAMD) LM87800 chip, but the Seagate 600 Pro is designed for...

OCZ Agility 3 Series

The good news is that the Agility’s use of cheaper NAND only becomes a problem in a few situations, most of which are unlikely to impact home users. The slowdown is only apparent in tests that read and write large amounts of incompressible data to...

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...

AData Premier PRO SP920

To be honest, I don't have much to add to the conclusion of the M550 review. At 512GB and 1TB, the SP920 is an exact match with the M550. The 128GB and 256GB models lose some performance compared to the M550 due to fewer NAND dies but especially at...
