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...

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...

Crucial M550

There are so many reasons why the M550 could be one of the best SSDs in the market. It has the best-in-class encryption support (along with Samsung 840 EVO) and it's also one of the only consumer-grade drives with power loss protection. Heck, it even...

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 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...

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.

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...

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...

PNY CS1311 240GB

The PNY CS1311 is an overall decent SSD. The main issue with it has little to do with performance—in practical fact, it will be hardly distinguishable from most other low-end and midrange SSDs in everyday use. It's with its lack of distinguishing...

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...

The biggest problem I have with the Vertex 460 is OCZ's current situation. The Vertex 460 won't be affected by the acquisition terms because it'll be available after the deal closes, meaning that Toshiba will be covering the warranty. However, I don't...
