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...

Crucial M500 480GB

Conclusion The m500's performance is somewhat slower than that of the other drives we compared it with, but its encryption capabilities and redundant storage should appeal to buyers who care more about security than raw performance. Its data parity and...

Samsung 470 Series MZ-5PA

Samsung has come out of the gate strong with the 470 Series, its first retail SSD, which offers performance on par with current-gen SandForce-powered drives. Furthermore, its enclosure is the prettiest we’ve seen on an SSD, though that hardly matters...

Corsair Neutron Series XT

All in all, while it is an improvement over the S8, the S10 (and by extension, the Neutron XT) lacks a 'wow' factor that would really help it stand out from the rest. The TLC NAND support in the S10 is certainly a nice feature, but I don't want to...

Kingston SSDNow V+ Series SNV225-S2

The second-gen Kingston SSDNow V+ is a strong performer and it gets brownie points for the included upgrade kit, as well as native TRIM support. It doesn’t offer a huge jump in performance, but users won’t be disappointed. And it’s less expensive than...

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...

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...
