Kingston SSDNow V+ Series SNVP325-S2

The Kingston SSDNow V-Series isn’t the fastest SSD on the market, but at ’49, it’s much less expensive than its competitors, and offers a significant improvement over 7,200-rpm hard drives. The bundled upgrade kit adds even more value, as it allows you...

Seagate 600 Pro 120GB SATA 5 Pack 120Go

Seagate's 600 Pro is the professional (read: workstation/server) version of the standard Seagate 600 SSD. Both the 600 and the 600 Pro sport the same memory controller—a Link_A_Media (LAMD) LM87800 chip, but the Seagate 600 Pro is designed for...

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...

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...

Kingston SVP200S37A/240G V+ 200

The Kingston SSDNow V+200 kit provides a no-nonsense way to upgrade your spinning drives to SSD speed, but parts of the package are a bit too backward-looking.

Corsair Force LS Series

Ironically (given our introduction), if you're looking for an inexpensive SSD these days, your best bet is likely going to be one of the many SandForce SF-2281 drives. The 240GB SF-2281 drives are routinely available for around $170/£105, sometimes...

PLEXTOR M6S 512GB

With unimpressive performance that doesn't match its high price, there's no reason why you should pick the Plextor M6S over other SSDs on the market.

Crucial M500 480GB

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...

Crucial RealSSD C300

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...

Crucial 2.5" 1TB M550 SSD SATA 9.5mm

Crucial’s M550 isn’t the very fastest drive, or close to the cheapest, but it’s a very good balance of the two that would be easy to recommend to just about all users if it weren’t for a couple of quibbles.
