Samsung SSD 850 EVO

The Samsung's 2TB version of the 850 Evo offers superb capacity and it virtually matches the 850 Pro drive for speed. If the better warranty and endurance rating of the Pro are a non-issue for you, then this is the SSD to go for.

Samsung Festplatte NVMe SSD 970 Evo

This is the only 2TB 970 Series model. The performance is slightly lower than the 1TB, but you won't notice the difference. The capacity alone makes this a standout NVMe SSD. The 2TB 960 Pro is the only competitor, but it costs nearly $500 more.

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 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 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...

Crucial MX200

Crucial's latest SSD has big shoes to fill, as the MX100 has been our favourite budget drive for some time thanks to solid performance and a jaw-dropping price. The MX200 carries on Crucial's tradition for keen pricing – it's newer, but it costs just £90.
