Corsair Extreme Series X128

This is going to be a joyless conclusion. The widely available SSDs based on the JMicron controller can only disappoint you with their performance, especially if compared with alternative products. We can only recommend them if your SSD is going to...

OWC OWCSSDAP12K480 AURA PRO

I have a MacOS 10.6 boot disk, went into restore mode, formatted the new internal 480gb and performed a restore with my original 250gb drive in the enclosure that was supplied. In 30min, life was sweet. Boot up seems a bit slow but overall speed...

Corsair Force 3 120GB

Solid state drive performance improvement over traditional platter drives is undeniable and widely accepted. Because of the premium price, however, a lot of people are not so quick to jump with both feet into this technology. This is exactly why...

Crucial V4 CT064V4SSD2CCA 64GB

The AS-SSD sequential benchmark uses incompressible data for all of its transfers. The result is a pretty big reduction in sequential write speed on SandForce based controllers, while other drives continue to work at roughly the same speed as with...

Thermaltake Massive23 GT CLN0019

Great product. Have had it over a month now and you still can't tell the fan is running. It keeps my computer ice cold when browsing the Internet and watching movies. While gaming it keeps it cool enough where you don't lose performance.

Seagate ST240HM000

On the performance front, the Seagate 600 SSD did well enough overall to keep mainstream users happy. It would definitely be a huge improvement over a spinning-platter hard drive. But those looking for the very fastest boot times and program launches...

Mushkin 7mm Chronos Deluxe 60GB (MKNSSDCR60GB-DX7)

I paid more than the current price but even still with new price can't honestly recommend something that only lasts a year.

Elgato 120GB Thunderbolt SSD

The Elgato Thunderbolt SSD offers speed and convenience for a very high premium. With limited storage and a very high price tag, the drive is only suitable for Thunderbolt-enabled Mac owners with deep pocket and a dire need for a high-speed storage...

HGST Ultrastar

Hitachi 2TB just arrived to mate with my second Seagate Backup Plus Desktop Thunderbolt Adapter purchased at the same time. The drive mounts up as a "Hitachi" and not HGST, which gives me warm fuzzy confidence that it's not some cheap knock off. The...

Plextor PX-128M6S

With unimpressive performance that doesn't match its high price, there's no reason why you should pick the Plextor M6S over other SSDs on the market.

HP Pocket Playlist

The HP Pocket Playlist ($129 direct) is a 32GB flash drive that can be used to carry extra media files that won't fit on your phone or tablet. Whether it's because you bought the cheaper 8GB phone, or that your 64GB of stoarage space is already filled...

MUSHKIN/NEWEGG PLEASE ASSIST. I have a $167 paperweight. I two more of these drives I hope I did not experience the same thing. I thought by buying the extended warranty I had no concerns, I was wrong.

Western Digital SSC-D0064SC-2100

I’m sure you and almost everyone you know has a favorite hard drive manufacturer and when they are building a new system they will ONLY use those types of drives.  Honestly I am more or less the same way.  As I said in the introduction of this...

In my haste to complete the build, I made the assumption the mobo would automatically choose AHCI, SMART and Native settings. Original build set it to IDE and had WEI scores of 7.3. Figured out my assumption was wrong, made the correction including a...

Crucial Technology CT64M225

It is good to finally see solid state drives coming out in larger capacities. The 30GB and 60GB drives are nice and everything but they are not something I would put in a desktop system. Simply because I don't think that 60GB is enough space for all of...

Super Talent IDE ZIF SSD

Patriot Memory Torqx 2 128Go

The Patriot Memory Torqx 2 is a bit of a tricky one to judge. Initially I was thinking the Torqx 2 was the successor to the original Torqx SSD, but I'm coming away from this review knowing they are different and shouldn't be compared.

It's very difficult to criticise the Lenovo ThinkPad X301 without sounding like a nitpicker. This is a fantastic and well-engineered notebook that has plenty of features and looks very attractive. The only substantial issues are the high price tag, the...
