Samsung SSD 850 EVO

The Samsung's 2TB version of the 850 Evo offers superb capacity and it virtually matches the 850 Pro drive for speed. If the better warranty and endurance rating of the Pro are a non-issue for you, then this is the SSD to go for.

Samsung T3

If you need fast, reliable portable storage then the Samsung Portable SSD T3 is an ideal buy. It is a bit pricier than typical portable hard drives or USB flash drives but you get plenty for the premium.

Samsung SSD 750 EVO

Samsung’s 750 EVO is the cream of the TLC-based SSD crop. It costs a bit more than the competition, but to my mind, the smooth performance is worth the extra dough. Especially as RAPID can give your computer a feel that’s otherwise only achievable with...

Samsung SSD 850 Pro

The Samsung 850 Pro combines impressive performance levels with the market’s best endurance rating and warranty. But if you don't require that level of protection, then the 2TB 850 Evo offers equivalent performance for less.

Samsung 840 EVO Series (MZ-7TE)

This Samsung 840 EVO (500GB) is the SSD equivalent of having one's cake and eating it, too. When the Samsung 840 and 840 Pro launched, there was justified concern about the drive's use of TLC NAND, and a significant performance gap between the two....

Crucial MX100

The MX100’s endurance rating of 72TB is decidedly average – half as much as the Samsung 850 Pro. Many other drives also promise greater longevity, although most consumers shouldn’t be concerned unless they’re running lots of heavy workloads.

Crucial's latest SSD has big shoes to fill, as the MX100 has been our favourite budget drive for some time thanks to solid performance and a jaw-dropping price. The MX200 carries on Crucial's tradition for keen pricing – it's newer, but it costs just £90.
