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,...

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...

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...

Ocz VTX460-25SAT3-240G

In summary, then, the Vertex 460 is a reasonable replacement for the Vertex 450, but pricing on the old model is actually a bit lower for now when resellers are clearing their stocks.

Solid-state drives (SSDs) are approaching mainstream levels of adoption, but fret not enthusiasts, the 1.2TB Intel SSD 750 Series ($1,029) is here to fulfill all of your early adopter needs. It's difficult to implement, relatively pricey, and may...

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 SSDNow V300

In general I think Kingston should differentiate their SSDs more because the V300 and HyperX 3K are too similar. For example giving the HyperX 3K a 5-year warranty would help justify its high-end positioning and a higher price too, but currently...

Samsung 840 MZ-7TD

On the other hand, the difference in everyday use should not be overly dramatic. Boot and load times are similar with all modern SSD, something that is also evidenced by the more general PCMark benchmarks

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...

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

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...

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...

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...
