Samsung 870 Qvo review: the best that SATA SSDs have to offer

When Samsung launched their 860 Qvo SSD back at the end of 2018, it finally brought high capacity SSDs down to a more affordable price. Why was the 860 Qvo suddenly so much cheaper than the 860 Evo?

Feature: The best budget NVMe SSD just got even better

WD’s Blue SN550 SSD is disgustingly good value

When the WD Blue SN500 came out last year, it went straight into my best gaming SSD list thanks to its low price and great read and write speeds. It was the perfect SSD for those on a budget, but the one thing it lacked was a cheap 1TB model. Thankfully, WD have rectified this for the latest version of its budget-friendly gaming SSD, the…

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 SSD for gaming champion, the Samsung T5.

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…
