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,...

Samsung 845DC EVO

Since we are dealing with two drives, it makes sense to split the conclusion into two and I will start with the 845DC PRO. While all we have today is a performance preview, the 845DC PRO is turning out to be one of the best enterprise SATA SSDs that we...

OCZ Vector 150

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.

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.

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...

Seagate 600 SSD

Just a few years ago, it seemed unlikely that Seagate would ever release an SSD. The company's outspoken CEO, Bill Watkins, roundly dismissed solid state drives in 2008 and 2009, even going so far as to imply Seagate would file lawsuits against upstart...
