WD Black P50 review: a tough SSD that’s a real bruiser on price

There have been more and more portable SSDs supporting the new USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard cropping up over the last couple of months. First, we had the Samsung T7 Touch, the latest, touch sensor-secured successor to my current best gaming SSD champion, the Samsung T5. Then there was Crucial's X8, which was a smidge faster than the T7 Touch and cheaper to boot. Now,…

Feature: A Crucial bit of kit

Crucial’s X8 is finally a worthy rival to Samsung’s portable SSDs

External SSDs can seem a bit of a luxury compared to the infinitely cheaper selection of external hard drives out there these days, but if you're after a small, portable drive that definitely won't break when you chuck it in a bag, then an external SSD like Crucial's X8 is well worth shelling out for. Indeed, after the fussy Samsung T7 Touch I tested last…

Feature: That, and the fact it costs an absolute fortune

Samsung’s T7 Touch is great-looking external SSD let down by its fussy fingerprint reader

The Samsung T7 Touch is the latest member of Samsung's portable SSD family. Like the Samsung T5 before it, this titchy drive has a lovely, sleek aluminium chassis that's roughly the same size as a couple of stacked credit cards.

Feature: Slow and steady wins the race

WD Black P10 review: Can this portable HDD compete with a portable SSD?

We all know the drill by now. Hard disk drives (or HDDs) are slow but cheap. SSDs are fast but expensive. We can often justify the latter if we're getting a small, internal drive for installing things like Windows or a couple of games on, but once you're into the realms of 2TB and above in SSD land, you're going to need to start handing…

Our best budget NVMe SSD is getting a new, faster 1TB model

When the WD Blue SN500 came out earlier in the year, it went straight into our best gaming SSD rankings thanks to its low price and nippy read and write speeds.

WD Black SN750 Heatsink review: Do you need a heatsink on your next gaming SSD?

When WD first announced they were redesigning their top-tier Black NVMe SSD to look more gamer-friendly earlier in the year, I must admit that I rolled my eyes a bit. After all, what could you possibly do to an SSD the size of a chewing gum stick that would make it look tangibly different to any other chewing gum stick-sized SSD? Well, in the case…

Feature: Picking up the pace

Crucial’s P1 is a great value NVMe SSD, but it’s not without its faults

Rockstar have quietly added the PC requirements for Red Dead Redemption 2 to the game's Rockstar Launcher page. The good news? It's not going to murder your PC. The bad news? It will absolutely gobble up your PC's storage banks, as it's currently recommending you keep at least 150GB set aside for it. I know it's a big game and all, but that's another 50GB…
