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...

OCZ ARC 100

Ratings in depth OCZ is a company whose history of flash storage products began a few years ago with the Vertex range of SSDs that were renowned for being affordable but not the best performers or most reliable. After a tumultuous last few years, the...

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...

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...

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...

Intel 730 SSD Series 240G / SSDSC2BP240G4R5

At launch, the new Intel SSD 730 Series makes a very good internal drive choice for your computer, but it'll become a better value when its street price drops below the current suggested retail price.

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...

OCZ Agility 3 Series (AGT3-25SAT3)

The good news is that the Agility’s use of cheaper NAND only becomes a problem in a few situations, most of which are unlikely to impact home users. The slowdown is only apparent in tests that read and write large amounts of incompressible data to...

Unsurprisingly, RAID 0 gives a nice bump in the headline sequential read/write scores. The reads jumped from 496MB/s up to 979MB/s, while the writes rose from 440MB/s to 842MB/s. When it came to dealing with the small bitty files of everyday use...

There’s no question that on a 6Gb/s SATA port, the Crucial C300 has by far the fastest read speeds we’ve ever seen. And on a 3Gb/s port, it’s nothing to sneeze at. But for sequential and random write speeds, it can’t touch SandForce drives. And its...
