Welcome to Myce’s review of the Samsung 845DC EVO 480GB SATA Enterprise SSD (hereafter referred to as the 845DC EVO).
These days there is an air of excitement at Myce when we receive a Samsung SSD for review. The last Samsung Enterprise SSD we reviewed was the 845DC PRO, which uses 3D VNAND to deliver class leading random write intensive performance.
With 845DC EVO Samsung now brings the use of 19nm 3bit TLC NAND (or 3bit Toggle MLC NAND, as Samsung prefers to call it) to the enterprise market. With the 845DC EVO Samsung targets the mixed/read intensive workload market segment, where low price, excellent read and reasonable write performance are demanded. The use of 3bit TLC NAND should give Samsung a significant price advantage but how will it perform? Please read this review to find out.
Welcome to Myce’s review of the Intel DC P3700 800GB NVMe Enterprise SSD.
This is the second NVMe drive we have reviewed and it follows on from our review of its awesome stable mate the Intel P3700 1.6TB.
Is the 800GB version just as awesome? Please read this review to find out.
Allow me to introduce the first consumer grade SSD
to implement 3bits per cell (TLC) 3D V-NAND, the Samsung 850 EVO range of SSDs.
The 850 EVO range of SSDs covers 120GB, 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB capacities.
The 850 EVO SSD that Samsung very kindly provided for review is the 500GB version.
Let’s find out how it performs in this review.
Time to take an in depth look on the overall performance of 512GB Micron M600 SSD, continue to read to find out how the drive compares to it’s smaller brother that I previously tested.
Time to take an in depth look at the Lexar Workflow DD512. The Lexar Workflow DD512 is an external USB3 SSD that has some very nice features, but as always the question is the same. How does it perform? Well, you can continue reading to find out.
Today I am taking a look on the Micron M600 SSD, this drive is mainly for OEM’s but I hope that some parts of it’s technology will find it’s way to the next generations of consumer drives from Crucial. So lets take a closer look on the M600 from Micron.
Time to take a look on the latest USB3 flash drives from Silicon Power, and this time I will be looking at the Blaze B06 32GB a value flash drive, but also I will be looking that the Marvel M70 a drive that is aimed to those that look for more performance and also great value. So let see how those drives perform.
One of the most important update that you can to to your laptop is to upgrade to your HDD to an SSD and then add some extra RAM to give a fresh breath to your laptop. So lets take a quick look on the Crucial Ballistix 2x8GB DDR3.
Time to take a closer look on the latest Kingston HyperX SSD. The Fury is a value oriented SSD, but the question is mainly focused on the performance of the drive, so continue reading to find out more.
Today I am taking an in depth look on the Kingston HyperX 3.0 USB3 flash drive. The HyperX 3.0 is one of the fastest drives that Kingston has to offer, and it’s also one of the best looking drives that you can get. So lets take a more detailed vied on the HyperX 3.0.
Today I am taking a close look on the Silicon Power Armor A60, a 2.5″ USB3 waterproof and shockproof resistant external hard drive. So lets see take a more detailed look at the Silicon Power Armor A60.
Today I am taking a look on the latest USB3 flash drive from Silicon Power. The Jewel J06 is a small and stylish flash drive and its available in capacities from 8GB up to 64GB, so lets move on and see how the Silicon Power Jewel J06 64GB performs.
It has been a while since OCZ released a budget SSD, but
that is the market segment where the new OCZ ARC 100 series of SSDs is aimed
at. The ARC 100 further consolidates OCZ’s transition to all in-house
components, in this case the transition to Toshiba A19 MLC NAND.
So let’s find out this value line SSD performs in our range of tests.

One thing that has remained pretty constant since SSDs
started to appear, is that the storage interface they connect to appears to
struggle to keep pace with the performance levels of the SSD.
The SATA2 interface was soon saturated by the SSDs of the
day, and SATA3 hasn’t done much better. If we look at mainstream PC platform
chipsets such as the Intel Z68, Z77, Z87, and now Z97, they all have one thing
in common. You have the high speed ‘north’ side of the board where the CPU,
memory, and PCIe3 reside. PCIe3 connects direct to the CPU, and has 16 10Gbps
lanes available for graphics cards or PCIe storage.
That neatly brings us to the point of this article. In this
review I will be checking out an M.2. PCIe SSD in the shape of the Plextor M6e
Let’s find out how it performs in this review.
Today I am taking a closer look on the Corsair Voyager AIR2, its an 1TB USB3 hard drive that also offers WiFI connectivity and many other features. Lets see how the Corsair Voyager AIR2 performs.
Today I am taking a close look on the latest high end USB3 flash drive, The Corsair Voyager GTX promises SSD speeds, you can continue reading the review to find out more.
Welcome to Myce’s review of the Intel DC P3700 1.6TB NVMe Enterprise SSD (hereafter referred to as the Intel P3700).
This is the first NVMe drive we have reviewed. NWMe stands for ‘Non-Volatile Memory express’. NVMe, is a specification that allows a solid-state drive (SSD) to make effective use of a high-speed Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) bus in a computer. Intel has taken a leadership role in the implementation of NVMe and is the first to bring an NVMe drive to market.
Fortunately for Myce, our partner OakGate Technology has been at the forefront of NVMe testing and validation. OakGate’s Marketing Director, Vipul Mehta says – “OakGate Technology was the first company to offer an advanced test platform for NVMe flash storage. Working closely with industry leaders, the company has incorporated a number of cutting-edge features and functions for PCIe flash products supporting both NVMe and AHCI protocols. Today, all leading suppliers of solid state storage rely on OakGate’s systems for test and validation of their NVMe products.”
So please read this review for an authoritative performance assessment of the Intel P3700 – it is a truly amazing drive!
Welcome to Myce’s review of the Samsung 845DC PRO 400GB SATA Enterprise SSD (hereafter referred to as the 845DC PRO).
Excitingly, the 845DC PRO uses Samsung’s new 3D V-NAND. How will it perform? Read this review for an authoritative performance assessment (Spoiler – a new 4K Random Write King takes the throne).
Samsung’s new 850 PRO 1TB SSD is the worlds first consumer grade SSD to use 3D V-NAND, promising much higher NAND endurance and better performance, and a 10 year warranty to boot.
But how does it perform?
Let’s find out in this review.
Recently DVDFab removed their Blu-ray copying and ripping capabilities due to legal issues in the United States. The company is in an ongoing legal battle with the AACS-LA and those who are looking for a way to backup their Blu-ray discs with DVDFab are sometimes blocked from doing so. Recently a new tool has emerged on forums called Wooka.
