Plextor M8PeG 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD Review
     Fri, Oct 28 2016 | 11:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest addition to Plextor’s range of SSDs is the M8P line of drives. The M8P family is the company’s first SSD range to use NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory) architecture and comes in two formats – an HHHL add-in card for motherboards without an M.2 slot and a 2280 M.2 drive, both using a PCI-e Gen3 x4 interface.

ADATA Ultimate SU800 SSD Review (512GB) – More 3D TLC For The Masses
     Thu, Oct 27 2016 | 2:26P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ADATA Ultimate SU800, despite the name and in contrast to the last ADATA SSD we had reviewed (SX930), is not an enthusiast oriented SSD, rather, it is an entry level/ budget SSD. The SX930 utilized a JMicron controller and enterprise-grade MLC+ NAND. The Ultimate SU800, on the other hand, utilizes a newer Silicon Motion controller and is the second SSD in the market utilizing Micron's 3D TLC NAND. This combination of components has us charting into new waters when it comes to evaluating the performance. Initially Micron had performance issues with their MX300 and had to go back to the drawing board to improve their firmware with a Marvell controller. Could it be possible that ADATA and SMI took on the challenge that even the fab owners couldn't handle the first time around? Or could it be a flop they need to figure out how to fix for themselves? Let's get on with the review and find out!

WD Blue SSD Review (1TB) - WD Steps Into The Ring
     Mon, Oct 24 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Because SSDs are taking ground in storage sales and, inversely, HDD sales falling quarter after quarter in recent years, WD had to do something more than just infuse NAND with their HDD components to maintain their competitiveness. In late 2015 we learned that their decision on the matter was to simply acquired an SSD company and their target of choice was none other than SanDisk. After months of back and forth discussion and agreements WD finally purchased SanDisk for roughly $16-$19 billion in May. This purchase has allowed them to easily gain precious SSD IP and other related assets, most importantly, access to a NAND supply. Since the acquisition, WD has stayed quiet on the SSD front...until now. Today marks the release of their first full-fledged SSD, the WD Blue SSD.

Today we have a 960 PRO
     Sun, Oct 23 2016 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just under a year ago we published our review of the Samsung 950 PRO, their first foray into NVMe SSD territory. Today we have a 960 PRO, which strives to be more revolutionary than evolutionary. There are some neat new features like 16-die packages and a Package-on-Package controller/DRAM design, all cooled by a copper heat spreading label! This new model promises to achieve some very impressive results, so without further delay, let's get to it!

Samsung 960 Pro 2TB NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD Review
     Sun, Oct 23 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The performance embargo has just been lifted on Samsung’s new 960 PRO and EVO NVMe M.2 SSDs! The Samsung 960 PRO is for prosumer, enthusiasts and high-end users that want the best performance and endurance, while the 960 EVO offers slightly lower performance for the broader consumer market. The drive that we'll be looking at today in-depth is the Samsung SSD 960 PRO 2TB NVMe M.2 PCIe model....

Samsung 960 PRO RAID Review

Samsung 960 PRO M.2 1TB NVMe SSD review
     Sat, Oct 22 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we test the new M.2 and extremely fast Samsung 960 PRO Series SSDs with all new Polaris based controller. These new M.2 units can now be purchased in volume sizes up-to 2TB and use the nvm express (NVME) 1.2 protocol which is even faster anno 2016. Storage technology is advancing with hyper fast paces while remaining competitive in pricing. Does Samsung have yet another NAND success at hand?

Drobo 5D
     Fri, Oct 21 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Drobo 5D launched a few years ago and continues to be a pricey solution, running close to $600. This was due to added complexity with its mSATA hot data cache and other features that drove the price higher than some potential buyers were happy with. Sure the cache was nice, but many photographers and videographers edit their content on a faster internal SSD and only shift their media to their external storage in bulk sequential file copies. These users don’t necessarily need a caching tier built into their mass storage device - as they just want good straight-line speed to offload their data as fast as possible.

Samsung 960 Pro M.2 NVMe SSD Review (2TB) - Breathtaking Speed
     Thu, Oct 20 2016 | 11:41A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Size, weight, speed, latency, endurance, power consumption, price, warranty, etc. All these characteristics help to define storage media and are what classify some drives as entry level, others as mainstream, and a for a select few, enthusiast/prosumer. What if we said we have a drive that is near the perfect mix of all these and the result is that it is the best consumer SSD in the market at this time? What if we said this SSD is not only the best, but the highest capacity M.2 device money can currently buy? What if we said it is faster than any other consumer NVMe SSD we tested, ever? Well, if you have been keeping up with the news as of late, you would be 100% correct on your assumption that we were talking about Samsung's latest release, the Samsung 960 Pro. It is a revolutionary M.2 NVMe SSD product that breaks the boundaries and delivers speeds that for many, are beyond what they can actually take advantage of! Let's get on with the review and learn more shall we?

Posted by: STAFF
By now I’ve got to know the Crucial MX300 series pretty well. I initially reviewed the limited edition 750GB model upon release and recently we had a look at the largest model which comes with 2TB capacity. Today it is time to check out the physically smaller and compact M.2 2280 format and I got the Crucial MX300 M.2 SSD with 525GB capacity in for the testing.

Intel SSD 600p Series 512GB Review
     Tue, Oct 18 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Announcing half a dozen new 3D NAND-based SSDs in August, Intel's SSD 600p Series in particular caught our attention for being an aggressively priced M.2 NVMe-based model targeting consumer desktops and notebooks. The 600p comes in capacities starting at 128GB for $67 up to $189 for 512GB. At just $0.36 per gigabyte, the latter looks to be exceptional value.

Toshiba OCZ VX500 SSD Review
     Sat, Oct 15 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Benchmark Reviews has previously tested both the budget OCZ Trion SSD and the premium OCZ RD400 m.2 PCIe SSD; the new VX500 represents the middle of Toshiba/OCZ’s SSD range. At the time of our reviews, the 512GB RD400 was $309.99 while the 480GB Trion 150 was $139.99; with a price of $154.99, the OCZ VX500 SSD is only slightly more than the budget Trion 150 (whose price has since dropped), but it’s still much less expensive than the RD400. Let’s see how the performance and features compare.
