Samsung T3

If you’re after a large capacity portable drive for backing up your photos, videos, music and other precious data, the Samsung T3 is a great choice. However, a traditional hard drive is still much, much cheaper if speed isn’t your main priority.

Samsung 840 EVO Series (MZ-7TE)

The 1TB 840 EVO is the drive we've been waiting for and could cement Samsung at the top of the SSD tech tree. Regardless of the EVO's software bundle offering though, the performance of the hardware on its own is enough for us to be rather excited...

Crucial MX300 525GB

Benchmarking SSDs these days, especially SATA-based ones, is mainly a means for checking for major flaws rather than delving into minute comparisons. It's been the case for some time now that virtually all modern SSDs are suitable for your average home...

Crucial MX100

The MX100’s endurance rating of 72TB is decidedly average – half as much as the Samsung 850 Pro. Many other drives also promise greater longevity, although most consumers shouldn’t be concerned unless they’re running lots of heavy workloads.

SanDisk Extreme II

What sort of a fist has SanDisk made of the 9187 chipset in this latest Extreme II SSD, then? Pretty stellar, actually. Direct comparisons with the other Marvell 9187 drive in this test, the Crucial M500 , are tricky due to the gap in capacity. The...

Sandisk Ultra II SSD

For a long time, the Crucial MX100 was the SSD to beat for those on a tight budget, but the SanDisk Ultra II has stolen its crown. The 240GB model is reasonably priced, but the 960GB version is the best value at just 30p per gigabyte. For all our...

Ultimately the Samsung 860 PRO is a commendable technical achievement; Samsung has pushed the SATA III interface to its limit by having it serve such a powerful SSD, and it's entirely possible we won't see a better desktop SATA SSD ever made. But as...

Crucial MX200

When we tested the Crucial M550 last year it had a price/storage quotient of 37 pence per gigabyte. The latest MX200 is today available for around 30p/GB but other than that little has changed, except the newer drive has smaller process 16 nm flash and...
