  • Abstract:  In June, 2012 we published a large group test of SSDs with capacities of 120/128 GB and 240/256 GB . Those are still the most popular sizes, judging from what people search for on Hardware.Info. The world of SSDs didn't stand still, and since then a num...

  • You buy a 64 GB SSD because you'd like to add an SSD to your computer for as little money as possible. Now that 128 GB models are becoming affordable, the choice seems obvious. But if you want to assemble a cheap (office) PC or have another scenario tha...

  • Abstract:  SSD prices are dropping so quickly that it makes more and more sense to have one in your PC. 120 or 128 GB versions you can find already for £90, and for less than twice that you can buy an SSD with double the capacity. It will still take a long time be...

  • Abstract:  After Valentine's Day, SSDs prices fell yet again, and we updated our list to reflect those changes. This month, the best deals are found in the mid-range offering, and there's one bargain in our list for a 240GB SSD that you simply will not want to mi...

  • While this Samsung 830 Series 256GB doesn’t quite top the league tables for overall performance, it is still one extremely quick storage drive. Samsung seems to have tweaked its controller to favour read speed at most file sizes, suggesting it may have...

  • 
I really like Samsung’s SSD 830 and it shows that its predecessor, the SSD 470 was no flash in the pan. While it may be more expensive than, for instance OCZ’s Vertex 3, it does come bundled with some powerful and very useful utilities. Moreover, in...
