Intel Optane SSD 900P Series (280GB)

Introduction, Design, Features If you only pay attention to the consumer solid-state drive market, you might think Intel is an also-ran drive maker, occasionally churning out mainstream offerings like the SSD 545s Series (512GB) that, while solid options often with long warranties, don’t lead when it comes to performance or low pricing. But Intel’s drives are huge in the enterprise/server world ... Read More »

LaCie d2 Thunderbolt 3 (8TB)

The highfalutin’ port not only allows for superfast file transfers (compared to older USB ports), but it also lets you daisy-chain multiple drives together.

Yes, we’ll be the first to admit: It’s the first SSD that we have any recollection of calling “funky.” SSDs are usually a staid lot, but this one stands out, first and foremost, for its “armored unicorn” design theme. (Yeah, ... Read More »

But, as with any company whose operating revenue is substantial enough to be compared to ... Read More »

Introduction, Design, Features What’s more impressive than pulling out your business card in a client meeting? Pulling out a ton of files in a gadget no bigger than a short stack of business or credit cards.

iStorage DiskAshur2 HDD (1TB)

So, you’re grateful to live in a time when terabytes of data can live on a drive that rides in your pocket? Not so fast. Sure, it can be a huge benefit. You can easily stash your movies, music, spreadsheets, and vacation slideshows for instant access over USB. It’s also a huge risk vector, though: Those terabytes are at the ... Read More »

HP S700 Pro (1TB)

If you’re reading this and asking yourself, “HP makes SSDs?” you’re not alone. We thought the same thing on getting word of the company’s newest line of sober-looking solid-state drives. But HP has, indeed, flown under the radar in the highly competitive client-SSD market, offering branded drives for some time, built on other makers’ internals and qualified in-house. Dubbed the ...
