Samsung SSD 850 PRO Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Jul 05 2014 | 7:51A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid State Drive technology has been revolutionary in that it delivers a very noticeable performance boost that surpasses upgrades to other components. As a result, companies who offer SSDs typically spend small fortunes marketing them to the consumer public. Samsung goes a different route, and relies on proven performance to sale units. This was especially true for the Samsung SSD 840 PRO, which generated its own interest by producing impressive transfer speeds. Powered by their own 32-layer 3D V-NAND technology, the Samsung SSD 850 PRO replaces the 840 PRO solid state drive and delivers up to twice the density and write speed of traditional 20nm planar NAND flash components. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the 256GB Samsung SSD 850 PRO against the fastest solid state drives available."

Crucial MX100 SSD Review (256/512 GB) Crucial Strikes a Victory For Value
     Fri, Jun 20 2014 | 10:04A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial has been making reliable cost effective mainstream SSDs for years now. Each new product release striving for better performance, reliability, and value. The recent release of the M550 built upon their M500, offering even better performance, but at a higher price point per GB. Because of this, Crucial needed to release a more modern lower budget drive. They had already separated their product line of SSDs in the 2012 with their V4, offering a more budget friendly SSD. However, it turned out to be a bad move. To make the V4 cheaper they skimped out on the controller and used an unstable and slow Phison controller and firmware. This lead to users having windows freezing issues and real world performance was almost similar to HDDs besides boot times."

OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB PCIe SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jun 16 2014 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ Storage Solutions was the first to venture into the PCIe SSD drives for consumer machines back in mid 2010 and the last one we saw was a hybrid version from late 2011. Not many other companies were keen on putting out PCIe drives for consumer applications and back then, most if any, drives were hitting the SATA III threshold. However, as the SATA III bandwidth continues to be a limiting factor for a growing number of drives and the next generation SATA interface still out a ways on the horizon, it?s a good time to leverage the ample bandwidth PCIe brings. So, OCZ has forged ahead with the RevoDrive series and sent over the shiny new RevoDrive 350 480GB drive for us to bang on for a bit and as always, we were duly impressed..."

Plextor M6M 256GB mSATA SSD Full Review - Mini Marvell
     Sun, Jun 15 2014 | 3:56A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I was pleasantly surprised by the overall performance of the Plextor M6M. The Marvell controller does very well when coupled with Toshiba flash memory, and does not seem to suffer any penalties when linked to only four flash packages in the smaller mSATA form factor. Pricing is still a bit unstable as these have not been on the market for long, but if you can find one at a competitive cost/GB, it will be a great option for those needing an mSATA SSD."
