ADATA XPG SX8200 480GB M.2 NVMe Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Jun 16 2018 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We took a look at ADATA’s first NVMe solid state drive the XPG SX8000 back in early 2017. Needless to say it was not the best NVMe drive we tested at the time. Well today we have one of their newest drives the XPG SX8200. It makes use of Silicon Motion’s SM2262 controller paired with Micron’s 64-layer 3D TLC NAND. It seems like ADATA has got things right with this drive as both the controller and the NAND are some of the best currently available. ADATA puts specifications of this drive at 3200 MB/s read and 1700 MB/s write, so it is definitely an improvement over the previous generation. The drive is also backed by a 5-year warranty. Let’s put this drive to the test and see what it can do!"

Toshiba OCZ RC100 240GB M.2. SSD
     Fri, Jun 15 2018 | 5:56P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the new Toshiba OCZ RC100 240GB NVMe SSD. You can look at the product series as the affordable alternative, but on NVMe nothing is slow. This affordable series really fast (relatively speaking) with a rated sequential read speed up to 1600 MB/s and sequential write speed up to 1100MB/s. That's twice to three time as fast as a regular 2.5" SSD, for the same money.

WD My Passport 1TB @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jun 15 2018 | 5:51P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You guys/girls ever see something that you really don’t need but just have to have in your life? For the most part, I try to keep things like this under control, but a while back during our anniversary contest I happened to see that WD had this bright orange external drive. Now I wish they had a bright orange My Passport SSD like the one I reviewed last year, this isn’t it. This is the larger spinning disk-based model. But its bright bright orange! So I had to check it out. So today I’m going to show you guys the drive, check out its performance, then talk a little about if classic external storage is still a good option these days.

ADATA's XPG line
     Wed, May 30 2018 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA has a habit of occasionally coming out of the woodwork and dropping a great performing SSD on the market at a highly competitive price. A few of their recent SATA SSD launches were promising, but some were very difficult to find in online stores. This has improved more recently, and current ADATA products now enjoy relatively wide availability. We were way overdue for an ADATA review, and the XPG SX8200 is a great way for us to get back into covering this company's offerings.
