PNY CS2211 2.5" SATA III 480GB 480Go

The PNY CS2211 240GB is an affordable SSD that performs very well in comparison to its competitors. It however suffers from being limited in its availability and is hard (if not impossible) to find within the EU.

Plextor M6V 128GB

As one of the fastest budget solid-state drives, the Plextor M6V is a very good replacement SSD for any computer that still uses a traditional hard drive.

Plextor 512GB M6e

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...

Corsair Neutron Series GTX

When we last paid a visit to the Corsair Neutron GTX late last year, we declared it one wicked-fast SSD, but it was unfortunately nicked at the finish line by the Samsung 840 Pro. Corsair isn't too worried about that, though, and seems to have adopted...

Ocz VTR150-25SAT3-240G Vector

With fast performance and a good warranty, the OCZ Vector 150 is a great SSD for first-time adopters. It's not a worthwhile upgrade for the original Vector drive, however.

OCZ Vertex 4 Series

OCZ has typically reserved its Vertex label for the highest-performing SSDs in a given generation—using synchronous NAND, for example, rather than the asynchronous NAND found in its less expensive Agility series. The 256GB Vertex 4 carries on that...

Crucial MX200 2.5" 7mm 500GB

The M.2 form factor makes solid-state drives (SSD) more compact, and allows PC manufacturers to put multiple drives in small-form-factor (SFF) desktops and thin-and-light laptops. Crucial's MX200 M.2 SSD ($120) gives you the option of adding an extra...

Crucial BX100

The MX100 was a revolutionary product in many ways. It was the first drive to move to sub-19nm NAND, which brought cost savings along with it. The combination of price and performance made the MX100 arguably one of the most cost efficient drives on the...

Rebates with Corsair are always a bit unpleasant. They have more-than-average hoop jumping.

Samsung 830 Series MZ-7PC

And boy, does it cook. The 256GB Series 830 SSD we tested matched the fastest second-gen SandForce drives, such as OCZ’s Vertex 3, in nearly every benchmark, and it exceeded them in some. The 830 Series’ sustained read speeds stayed north of 500MB/s,...

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...

Freecom Mobile Drive Mg

If you're happy to pay a large premium for a tiny performance gain over USB 3.0, then the Freecom Mobile Drive Mg will appeal, but we'd suggest looking at the USB 3.0-only model, which is much cheaper.

Intel 520 Series SSD (SSDSC2CW)

For every season, there is a spin. Intel’s first consumer SSDs, the X-25M series, didn’t have the fastest performance, but they gained a reputation for reliability. We had high hopes for Intel’s 320 Series SSDs, which turned out to be really great...

Looks great, kingston makes some good memory based items. It's worth the price other then the low GB's on the thing which takes it to 4/5 for me, if there was a half rating i would've rated it 4.5/5 because it's really that good and haven't had any...

On the other hand, the difference in everyday use should not be overly dramatic. Boot and load times are similar with all modern SSD, something that is also evidenced by the more general PCMark benchmarks

Kingston SV300S3B7A/480G

I have one issue with the V300: There's nothing particular in it that would differentiate it from the other SandForce based SSDs. While Kingston said they did lots of customization and worked closely with SandForce/LSI, at least in our testing there...
