  • Now that the prices of SSDs are starting to fall again, the competition is starting to take off again. Especially the new models from Crucial and Samsung bring some life back to the business, which was badly needed in this market. Last year there were few...

  • You can consider yourself lucky if you purchased an SSD last year. Since then not a lot has happened when it comes to the performance, while the prices have gone up. However, using a hard drive as boot disk is not necessary at all - there are more than en...

  • According to our tests, the Samsung SM951 (NVMe) is the fastest SSD available. It is even faster than the 950 Pro, while it is a lot cheaper as well. Bear in mind that you miss out on official Samsung support in the form of warranty, Magician and firmware...

  • First of all the best middleclass SSD that you can use. Based on the performance and the good price the Sandisk Ultra II 480GB is the best choice. The Sandisk performs nearly as well as the fastest SATA600-drives in the test, but for a much lower price...

  • The number of SSDs with a capacity of 1 TB is still relatively small. There are much more 500 GB SSDs available. Nevertheless you can find some interesting models. On top of this list we find the Sandisk Ultra II 960GB, because of its very wallet-frien...

  • The Samsung 850 Pro combines impressive performance levels with the market's best endurance rating and warranty. But if you don't require that level of protection, then the 2TB 850 Evo offers equivalent performance for less...

  • Massive capacity, Very solid performance, Excellent endurance, 10-year warranty
  • Price, Solitary form factor
  • Samsung has used its proprietary 3D V-NAND technology to construct a new SSD that expands storage to a whopping 2TB. Interesting insofar as the technology uses an older, more mature process in a stacked formation, endurance, capacity and warranty are all...
