MiniPro 480GB External eSATA 6Gb/s + USB 3.0 Portable Solid State Hard Drive SSD

I bought this for work because we have large MATLAB models that take forever to load and compile. I even put the MATLAB install directory on it and MATLAB now opens within 10 seconds!! Connected to my Dell Latitude through the ESATA port. This saves me...

Corsair Force Series F40

To be honest, this is my first SSD ever. I have wanted one since their release, but they have always been out of my sensible price range. As of right now, they still are. The smaller drives, like the F40 seem like a teaser to me. They are right in a...

Crucial FCCT256M550SSD1

A slightly better product than the newer MX200. Definitely refurbished at the factory, not merely an open-box return. S.M.A.R.T. reports it has zero hours in use and was turned on 2 times before I got it.

I would recommend this if you're looking for a cheap-ish 240gb SSD. It loads windows in seconds.

I love this drive! It is VERY fast at transferring​ data, and I don't have to worry about drops damaging the drive. However, I have noticed that if you leave it plugged in for a long period, the drive gets really hot.

Corsair P256 2.5-inch Solid State Disk Introduction

The 256GB capacity market in the US isn't nearly as saturated as the 128GB arena. If you are looking for a large capacity SSD you have a few options, the Intel 160GB drive that currently sells for 619, the G.Skill Falcon 256GB at 589 and the Corsair...

Plextor M5S 128GB

The M5S also costs £1.01 per gigabyte for the 128GB version, which makes it significantly more expensive than quicker drives. The Plextor M5S's middling benchmark figures and high price mean you're far better off with the

Monster Digital LeMans 400GB SSD

First, let me say that this was packaged in a great way. Other vendors should learn from Monster Digital in this arena. The drive worked as promised. It installed easy and cloning software works as it should. The UBS 3.0 adaptor was a little shaky....

SanDisk Mini SSD mSATA 32GB Solid State Drive SDSA3DD-032G Tablet Hard Drive

I am using them in the Intel Next Unit of Computing models - they are cheap and fast and running now for a few months - not a hiccup at all. Fits in a regular mSata slot and ideal if you just need a low-capacity SSD for OS and a few apps.
