OCZ Technology Vertex

The Vertex 450 is right up there in almost every metric. Sequential reads and writes are close enough to the competition that it hardly matters, and so are our application tests, though you can say that of every drive. Random write performance is as...

The OCZ Synapse is one of those “outside the box” ideas that actually works surprisingly well in the real world. It may not be perfect and

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...

SanDisk SSD Conversion Kit SDSSDCK-AAA-G27

Additionally I am planning to use kit to recover files from old unbootable hard drives. I will document my experience.

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...

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.

Mushkin MKNSSDCR240GB-7 Chronos

Ultimately, gauging any SSD's value proposition comes down to two factors: speed, and the cost per gigabyte.

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...

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...

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.

SanDisk X110

Maybe it was the Drobo's fault, but I bought this model because it was recommended by as compatible with the 5N.

Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDEC120GB

I would not recommend this product. I have had 4 SSD drives fail out of about 150 in the last 2 years. 2 were Mushkin and 2 were PNY. Mushkin USB flash drives are great, but their ECO drives have not worked well for me. 2 out of 4 ECO drives have...

Mushkin MKNSSDCR480GB-7 Chronos

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.

HyperX SH103S3/120G

Out of the blue the drive decided to die on me today and unfortunately I forgot to back up some important documents so those are lost. I don't think I used it that much as it was mainly my boot drive. Also died after the warranty expired so there will...

Silicon Power S55

This drive seems to be a great performer for the price. As a rule, I don't trust SSDs with important data or place them in write-intensive situations. I have not tested this drive in anything more strenuous than that. So far it is working very well...

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...

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...
