SanDisk ExSanDisk Extremetreme 510 Portable SSD Review: Rugged, External Storage
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 5:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SanDisk recently launched a new line of portable storage products, with photographers, videographers, and creative professionals in mind. The particular drive we'll be showing you here, the SanDisk Extreme 510, has a 480GB capacity and attaches to a PC using USB, though smaller capacities are also available. Not only does it have the performance of an SSD, with up to 430MB/s reads and 400MB/s writes over a USB 3.0 connection, but it is also water resistant, dust resistant (IP55 rating), and rugged enough to handle the rigors of mobile computing...

The 850 EVO
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's interesting to see the EVO come in at lower capacities than the PRO. Historically, Samsung has shipped their EVO line in higher capacities than the PRO line. The 850 EVO currently ships in capacities up to 4TB, while the 850 PRO remains limited to 2TB. I'd assume this is a marketing ploy to try and ship more PRO models, as TLC capacity lends itself to higher capacities for a given number of flash dies present. I would certainly like to see Samsung push the 960 EVO capacities upwards of 4TB, and with competing M.2 NVMe products shipping at a lower cost, those prices use some tweaking as well.

Apacer AS330 Panther 960GB SSD
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apacer's AS330 Panther SSD is inexpensive, offers good performance and has capacity to burn. But can this drive roar or will a lack of brand recognition cause it to purr out to obscurity?

Crucial MX300 1TB SSD Review
     Sun, Sep 25 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Three months ago Crucial announced the MX300 750GB ‘Limited Edition’ SSD to celebrate their brand new Micron 3D TLC NAND Flash memory technology. We reviewed the MX300 750GB drive and found that the Micron 3D TLC NAND along with the Marvell 88SS1074 controller and Crucial custom firmware proved to be a winning combination. Crucial has since released 275GB, 525GB, and 1050GB (1TB) and 2TB versions to join the existing MX300 750GB model, so there are now five different capacities to pick from if you want a Crucial MX300 series SSD in the 2.5-inch SATA III form factor. The unusual capacities are due to the Micron’s 3D TLC being 384Gbit when most other NAND companies are using 256Gbit technology. Read on to see how the MX300 1TB SSD performs!

Seagate 8TB Backup Plus Hub
     Thu, Sep 22 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Seagate 8TB Backup Plus Hub is a very appealing option for anyone that needs a large capacity device to backup their computer, and other devices. It is fast, easy to use, comes with very useful software, and the price is competitive. While testing confirmed it is definitely fast enough to use for frequent access to files you use often, I would say it is best suited for archiving files and the USB 3.0 speeds available will just make the process of getting up to 8TB backed up a quicker operation.

Samsung SSD 750 EVO SATA Solid State Drive
     Wed, Sep 21 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung SSD 850 EVO has become somewhat of a yardstick, by which other SATA-based SSDs are measured, and not without good reason. It set a very high bar when we reviewed it more than a year-and-a-half ago and it still holds up against newer products. Samsung has also come out with a newer drive series, the SSD 750 EVO, that sits one step below the 850 EVO in the company's line-up and is meant to be more affordable while still offering competitive performance. And by and large, it holds up in our tests as you'll see a little later...

Posted by: STAFF
The ADATA Ultimate SU800 is the first SSD series from ADATA that features 3D TLC NAND Flash memory components. Despite having 'Ultimate' in in its product name, the Ultimate SU800 is a SATA III 6Gb/s SSD that is aimed at the price-conscious consumer in the SSD value market. As you might have guessed, this means you'll get decent performance at rather affordable price points. Read on to find out how it performs and what the pricing is like!

SK hynix Canvas SL308 500GB Review
     Tue, Sep 20 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Already well known as a manufacturer of Flash NAND, SK hynix are certainly working on ramping up their presence in the SSD market with their own drives. Hard on the heels of the Enterprise-focused SE3010 that we examined recently comes the latest addition to the Canvas consumer range – the SL308. Aimed more towards the entry level end of the consumer space, the SL308 uses low-cost TLC memory in combination with an SK hynix controller.

Samsung SSD 850 Pro 128 GB Review with Contest
     Tue, Sep 20 2016 | 11:31A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have once again something special with strong performance for the smaller purse - the Samsung SSD 850 Pro with 128 GB capacity. Nowadays many select a larger SSD to get the larger capacity and faster performance, so it is not surprising that we are testing mainly 512 GB or 1 TB SSDs. Our first test of Samsung is now more than 5 years and our last SSD test with only 128 GB is also a few years ago. Today, we want to change both with the Samsung SSD 850 Pro 128 GB and extensively test, if now the small SSDs can be as fast as large SSDs. We are excited by the results!
