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...

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...

Adata DashDrive Elite SE720

At the end of the day most people are looking at external drives for one reason, for extra storage for their portable devices or for a drive they can use to swap files between two different systems. The SE720 accomplished that no problem, but also...

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...

OCZ Vertex 2 Series

It’s been a long time since we could unequivocally give a Kick Ass award to a solid state drive—the Patriot Torqx has held our Best of the Best spot for a long time—but the OCZ Vertex 2 takes the crown. Prices range from $200 for 50GB to over $1,800...

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.

Apricorn Aegis Padlock

Speedy performance and flashy designs may play well when it comes to consumer-grade storage, but if you're in a business that deals with sensitive customer data, security is your top concern. Data theft is big business, and if you're in a line of work...

OCZ RevoDrive X2 Series (OCZSSDPX-1RVDX)

With capacities that range from 100GB to 960GB, the RevoDrive X2 makes a disk-less PC seem almost feasible—if you don’t mind dropping a bundle of money. The 960GB version is a cool $3,300, while the 240GB model we tested goes for $600. It’s a tempting...

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...
