Best gaming SSD 2019: Top SATA and M.2 drives for PC

If you want Windows and games to load in a flash, then you should definitely have an SSD as your PC's primary drive. They're much faster than traditional hard disk drives, and you'll not only be able to get to your desktop in double-quick time when you first turn it on, but everything from copying files to loading up games will also feel much, much…

Samsung 970 Evo Plus review: Better in every way?

The Samsung 970 Evo has been my [block id="604473" title="Best gaming SSD"] recommendation under £200 for quite some time now. By far the fastest and best value for money NVMe SSD you can buy right now, it's comfortably seen off competition from the new WD Black SN750, the old WD Black and Adata's XPG SX6000 Pro. But what happens when you take all that 970…

Samsung 860 Qvo review: A fast, high-capacity SSD that’s excellent value

Black Friday and sales madness aside, high capacity SSDs still cost an absolute fortune. It's the main reason why so many of us still opt for small 250-500GB SSDs as our primary drive, and make do with larger, slower HDDs for storing big things like games and photos. Samsung's brand-new 860 Qvo, however, hopes to change all that by offering jumbo storage pockets at a…

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018: Best SSD deals

Black Friday is finally over for another year, but now there's a new deals train in town with a non-stop service to Cyber Monday. And reader, you've just boarded it. While a couple of these savings aren't quite as good as some of the best SSD deals we saw last week, the good news is that Cyber Monday has brought a whole bunch of new…

Build a Black Friday PC: The best 1080p gaming PC for under $590

Black Friday is a brilliant time for upgrading your PC on the cheap, but arguably it's an even better time for first-time PC builders looking to assemble all the necessary parts for the lowest price possible. Now I've already cribbed together a PC for UK builders that can play Plunkbat and Battlefield V on max settings at 1080p for under £600, but for US builders…

On this hallowed day o'deals that is Black Friday, I thought I'd take a small break from my epic deals hunting (all of which can be found in our jumbo Black Friday hub, by the way) to do something a bit more practical: tell you how to build a PC from the best Black Friday PC gaming deals that will run Plunkbat and Battlefield V…

Get the portable Samsung T5 SSD for £95 in Amazon’s Black Friday deal of the day

The excellent Samsung T5 external SSD is Amazon's Black Friday deal of the day this fine Monday morning (November 19) and you can currently get the 500GB model for just £95, or the 1TB for £189. That's the lowest price both sizes capacities have been in quite some time, according to CamelCamelCamel, but neither is quite as big a saving as Amazon would have you…

Samsung 860 Evo SSD price slashed to just £66 for 250GB

Samsung 970 Pro review: Do yourself a favour and get the Evo instead

For those after the very best that NVMe SSDs have to offer, Samsung's Pro line has often been the go-to choice for workstation and power peeps alike. They're usually faster than their more consumer and wallet-friendly Evo SSD siblings, and often come with higher endurance ratings for all that inevitable heavy-lifting they'll be doing once you've popped them into your PC. Today, I have Samsung's latest,…

Samsung 970 Evo review: The best NVMe SSD around

The Samsung 960 Evo and 960 Pro NVMe SSDs feel like they've been around for an absolute age, but when I heard they were getting replaced earlier in the week by a new 970 series as of May 7, it still came as something of a surprise. These new NVMe models are also split into Pro and Evo variants, and today I've got the 1TB…

Samsung adds 970 Evo and 970 Pro to their NVMe SSD family

Surprise! Just when you thought Samsung's 960 Evo and 960 Pro NVMe SSDs were going to stick around for another year, today brings news of their shiny new replacements: the appropriately-named 970 Evo and 970 Pro. I'll be reviewing them both very shortly, but for now here's a quick run-down of each SSD's specs and the kind of speeds we can expect to see from them when…

Samsung CHG90 review: We’re gonna need a bigger desk

The Samsung CHG90, or the LC49HG90DMNXZA to give it its full and proper title, is by far the most ludicrous monitor I've ever seen. Measuring a whopping 49in across its fancy curved diagonal, this ultra-super-stupidly-wide 32:9, 3840x1080, 144Hz, HDR (let me catch my breath for a second) FreeSync 2 VA display is proper bonkers. And I sort of kind of love it.

Samsung T5 review: A fast external SSD that costs just a bit too much

If you thought the WD My Passport SSD was a dinky external SSD, the Samsung T5 really takes the cake. Measuring just 74mm tall, 57mm wide and 10.5mm deep, the T5 is almost exactly the same size as a small box of matches. Weighing a featherweight 51g, it's exceedingly light, too, its cool metal chassis putting bigger, bulkier external hard drives to shame. This is…

Samsung 960 Pro review: Blistering fast SSD that costs an absolute bomb

There are several things that make the Samsung 960 Pro a bit special. The first is its ridiculous speed. With a claimed sequential read speed of up to 3500MB/s and a sequential write speed up to 2100MB/s, this is essentially a Formula One car crammed inside a drive no bigger than your index finger. It was also the first NVMe SSD aimed at us normal, non-enterprise…

Samsung 960 Evo review: Still the best value NVMe SSD money can buy

When Samsung first launched their pair of flagship 960 SSDs at the tail-end of 2016, they were the fastest NVMe SSDs on the planet. Coming in 960 Evo and 960 Pro flavours, they were five times faster than your typical SATA3 SSD and offered almost as much speed as their PCIe-based interfaces could manage. Today, little has changed, and both remain widely regarded as the…

For the past three years, Samsung's 850 Evo has been consistently the [block id="604473" title="Best gaming SSD"] money can buy. It's often been more expensive than the competition, but its speed, endurance rating and generous five-year guarantee have all helped it secure its place as one of the mainstays of any PC gaming build.

Samsung 850 Evo review: Still a great SSD for those in the UK

The Samsung 850 Evo is one of the most popular SSDs around, and with good reason. Thanks to its blistering speeds, five-year guarantee and best-in-class endurance rating, it's sat near the top of most [block id="604473" title="Best gaming SSD"] lists ever since it first came out at the end of 2014.
