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...

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...

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...

Samsung 845DC Pro

Samsung's 800GB 845DC PRO enterprise SSD increases the benefits of 3D V-NAND with more endurance and higher random write performance. Let's take a look.

Crucial Technology CT500BX100SSD1

This is a great value for an SSD. I will definitely be buying a few more of these for my other builds.

AData Premier PRO SP920

All in all, I would've liked to see something more customized from ADATA but a rebranded value drive suffices too. As I've said before, in the mainstream segment it's all about price and if the MSRPs give any hint, the SP920 (along with the M550 of...

Corsair Force Series GT

In CrystalDiskMark and AS SSD’s sustained read tests, the Force GT is as fast as any SSD we’ve ever tested. Its ATTO 64KB read and write scores, single-queue-depth 4KB read and writes, and Iometer random write speeds are likewise nearly identical to...

Intel X25-M Mainstream Solid State Drive

The X25-M remains a rock-solid choice for SSDs, and its read speeds and random-write response times are second to none. But in sustained-write speeds, it’s no match for the Patriot Torqx and its peers. But hey, the 160GB X25-M is $.10/GB cheaper than...

Seagate 600 Pro

If you're an ordinary consumer, you're going to be better served by a different SSD, but if you're doing a great deal of photo editing or other write-heavy tasks, the Seagate 600 Pro may be worth the premium. The 22% overprovisioning guarantees that it...

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.

OCZ RevoDrive 350

I have been a fan of OCZ’s RevoDrive series since it first debuted many years ago. Since then OCZ has always made improvements over the previous generation products. With the RevoDrive 350 OCZ has gone with 19 nm low-power Toshiba NAND memory, which of...

Adata DashDrive Elite SE720

At the end of the day most people are looking at external drives for one reason, for extra storage for their portable devices or for a drive they can use to swap files between two different systems. The SE720 accomplished that no problem, but also...

SanDisk Ultra II 240GB

In the Noctua NH-U9S review by Aaron Lai about a month ago, he reminded us of how good things can come in small packages -- with the consideration that people say this to make shorter people feel better. However, today, I would like to point out good...

Seagate 600 SSD

That puts the Seagate 600 in a great position as far as its price/performance ratio—it's a great first drive from Seagate, and hopefully a sign of things to come.

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...
