WD Blue SN500 review: Incredible value for money

SSD prices may have been falling over recent months, but adding a super fast NVMe SSD to your PC is still one heck of an expensive upgrade, especially if you're after something like our best gaming SSD champion, the Samsung 970 Evo. A 250GB stick of Evo goodness will set you back around £80 / $85 these days, with prices pretty much doubling if you…

Best gaming SSD 2019: Top SATA and NVMe drives for PC

If your PC is starting to feel a bit slow and long in the tooth, you might want to consider upgrading your storage banks to one today's best gaming SSDs. Simply put, you need an SSD - even if it's only for installing Windows on, or your other OS of choice. Not only will your PC load in the blink of an eye (okay, maybe…

Have Anthem’s loading times been improved by the Day One patch?

Anthem's Day One (minus two) patch has finally arrived, with one of the big 'High Level' fixes being its atrocious loading times, specifically when it comes to what Bioware refer to as 'older disk drives'. But how much have they actually improved by? Well, I've gone and re-tested the same HDD, SSD and NVMe SSD I tried on Tuesday to see what's what.

We put Anthem’s loading times to the test: HDD vs SSD vs NVMe

Anthem doesn't technically come out until February 22, but those who pre-ordered the game have been jumping around Bioware's futuristic Iron Man fantasy since Friday - or at least some of them have, as a lot of people haven't been able to get past the game's interminably long loading screens. Indeed, sometimes the game takes so long to load that you're too far behind the…

Adata XPG SX8200 Pro review: A great value NVMe SSD

When I tested Adata's XPG SX6000 Pro SSD at the end of last year, I called it a tempting budget alternative to some of our [block id="604473" title="Best gaming SSD"] champions such as the Samsung 970 Evo and WD Black 3D. The same could also be said of Adata's new XPG SX82000 Pro, which is more upmarket than its SX6000 Pro sibling with its claimed…

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…

WD Black SN750 review: So close to the Samsung 970 Evo, yet so far

For reasons I cannot fathom and that are probably lost to the bowels of their marketing department, Western Digital have decided their high-performance Black line of NVMe SSDs were in need of a face lift for 2019, because apparently gum stick-sized storage drives don't look 'gamer-y' enough already. The result of their somewhat baffling nip and tuck is the Black SN750, which I think you'll…

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…

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…

The SanDisk SSD Plus is real cheap on Amazon right now, but you should get these other, better SSDs instead

The 960GB SanDisk SSD Plus is Amazon's latest Black Friday deal of the day right now (Friday November 23), but as many of you pointed out earlier in my Black Friday Best SSD deals round-up when I stuck the 480GB model in there as part of Ebuyer's Black Friday deals earlier in the week (apologies again for that, it's now been scrubbed from existence), it…

Adata XPG SX6000 Pro review: A budget alternative to Samsung’s 970 Evo

If you're after an NVMe SSD that doesn't cost the earth, then Adata's XPG SX6000 Pro is a tempting budget alternative to the high-end Samsung 970 Evos and WD Black 3D NVMe SSDs of this world. With prices starting at just £57 / $60 for its lowest 256GB model, this is one of the cheapest NVMe SSDs going right now, but is it worth the…

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…

Crucial BX500 review: A great value SSD

Crucial's SSD line-up is in a bit of a funny place right now. As you may well have seen from our [block id="604473" title="Best gaming SSD"] rankings, their mid-tier MX500 SSD is currently cheaper than their entry-level BX300 SSD in practically all size categories above 120GB, and their latest BX500 SSD on test today only muddies the waters further. You would think, given its name,…

Get a free Kingston SSD when you buy a Nvidia GTX 1050Ti or 1060

In what's probably an attempt to shift as many graphics cards as possible before the new crop of [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] cards arrive, Nvidia's UK store and assorted partners are now bundling in free Kingston SSDs with a number of GTX 10-series graphics cards. Here's what's on offer.

This year's Amazon Prime Day is almost at an end. At midnight tonight, Amazon's big day o' deals will be over for another year (or, you know, until Black Friday in November), so if you had a look at the deals yesterday and thought, 'Hmm...
