Kingston now has a full line of solid state drives to offer to consumers. We have already taken a look at their HyperX Predator PCI-Express solid state drive on the high end and they have their HyperX Fury, which is more entry level.

Corsair Neutron XT 240GB Solid State Drive Review

The past year has been a real interesting one for solid state drives. The “big” companies have really taken a real interest in the consumer market and since they are the ones that own the fab houses it is really hard for smaller companies to offer an advantage in price and features. Corsair is a company we always know for quality products and have made a pretty good name for themselves in the SSD market. Today we will be taking a look at their Neutron XT 240 GB solid state drive. They have teamed with Phison, making use if their PS3110 quad-core controller and Toshiba 19 nm MLC NAND. With this combination Corsair says this drive is , “designed for the absolute best in class performance” for a 2.5-inch solid state drive”. Will that hold true? Read on as we find out!

OCZ ARC 100 240GB Solid State Drive Review

We have seen a lot of value-oriented solid state drives come out lately. Crucial had their MX100, Samsung had the 840 EVO and now it is OCZ’s turn. The drive we are taking a look at today is the ARC 100 and at its current price at my online retailer the drive sits at $0.44 per GB. As many of you know Toshiba took over OCZ and while back and with that everything inside this drive is owned by OCZ / Toshiba. Powering the drive you have the Barefoot 3 M10 controller and Toshiba A19nm NAND flash. That combination gives you sequential read and write speeds of 480 MB/s and 430 MB/s respectively for the 240 GB version we are testing today. Let’s jump in!

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB Solid State Drive Review

Unboxing the Kingston HyperX 3K Solid State Drive

We have always known Kingston for trying to make products that are affordable. They recently released a new solid state drive in their HyperX line.
