Toshiba Q300

From a product standpoint the Trion 100 did a good job of keeping pace with the price drops over the past several months, but neither it nor the new Q300 are sufficiently differentiated from the rest of the entry-level market. Now that Toshiba is...

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...

Kingston Hyperx Savage SHSS37A Series

When it comes to overclocking, one could say the Kingston kit we are reviewing today is quite... savage. Running at stock DDR4-2666 15-15-15-35 1.20V, I loosened up the timings to 17-17-17-39, and bumped the voltage right up to the 1.35V limit to see...

SanDisk Extreme II

The last time we saw the SanDisk Extreme SSD it wasn't exactly “extreme.” It was a fine drive and all, and we awarded it a “what a nice boy” verdict of 8 because it was decent, but it didn't blow off our anti-static leashes or anything. The problem was...

Kingston HyperX Savage SHSS3B7A/240G

In a sea saturated with solid state drives from every memory manufacturer under the sun, the Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB is one product that stands out -- literally. It does not strike me as common for an SSD to look good (Not saying they are usually...

Intel 750

The Intel 750 Series is easily the quickest solid state drive we’ve ever reviewed. Its performance is an incredible leap forward and, more importantly, its use of the new NVMe standard means the drive is fully bootable and operates as a plug-and-play...

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 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...

Intel 730 SSD Series 240G / SSDSC2BP240G4R5

Intel has largely been absent from the high-end SSD market for many years, which has been a real head-scratcher, considering the original X-25M's dominance back in 2009. That all changes this month with the release of its all-new 730 series SSD. It...
