Crucial MX100, 256GB

In the technology world, innovation can come in two ways: One is to push the performance envelope regardless of price, while the other is to drive down the price at the expense of performance. Of course, we usually do not see items on the extreme ends...

Adata Premier SP610

I am positively surprised by the new SMI controller and SP610. I have learned to be skeptical about value controllers because in the past the sacrifice in performance has not been worth the relatively small savings in cost. Usually the problem is that...

The Plextor PX-256M5S is not widely available at time of review, but we have seen it on sale for under £190 in 256GB capacity. Considering its first-division performance, it should make a compelling choice as a high-performance upgrade for any modern...

Ocz VTR150-25SAT3-120G Vector

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.

OCZ RevoDrive 3 Series

Earlier RevoDrives were marketed to enthusiasts, but you’ll find the RevoDrive3 X2 under the “Workstation” category on OCZ’s website—with good reason: SandForce drives are already optimized for frequent small-file random reads and writes at high queue...
