Samsung T5 Portable SSD 1TB Review (0)
Posted at 18 August 2017 13:37 CET

Welcome to Myce’s review of the Samsung T5 Portable SSD (hereafter referred to as the T5).
The Samsung T5 is a highly portable, high speed storage device, which could be used for carrying large amounts of data from one location to another; simply transfer the data you want to take to the new location onto the T5, stick the T5 in your pocket, arrive at the other location; plug the T5 into the new host PC or laptop, then copy the files over to the new host PC or laptop at lightning speed.
My myce.com colleague Wendy Robertson reviewed the previous version of the Samsung Portable SSD, the T3, and found it to be an outstanding product (You can read Wendy’s review of the T3 by clicking here). The T5 takes a step forward by providing support for connection to a computer via a USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) port, whereas the T3 is limited to a USB 3.0 (5Gbps) connection.
The T5 also introduces the use of Samsung’s fourth generation 64-layer MLC V-NAND. Please read on to see what we make of the T5.

There is also the default mode called balanced mode, that will bride the other two modes, but how much can those three settings affect the speed of your SSD? Lets find find out.

Toshiba X300 6TB High Performance HDD Review (0)
Posted at 14 March 2017 13:31 CET

Welcome to Myce’s review of the Toshiba X300 6TB SATA Consumer HDD (hereafter referred to as the X300).

I normally review Enterprise Storage products, particularly Enterprise SSDs. As you will see below, Toshiba targets the X300 at professional workstation users; or to put it another way the heavy weight end of the consumer market’s requirements. I am a self-confessed storage freak and I have in excess of 10TB of SSD storage in my home PC, including an NVMe based SSD as my boot drive and SATA and SAS SSDs being run in RAID 0 configurations. These days I can’t imagine that I would ever recommend anyone uses an HDD as a boot drive but I was motivated to investigate what it is like to live with a state of the art, high performance, HDD for data storage in conjunction with an SSD based boot drive. So, with this in mind, I jumped at the opportunity to review the X300.

Please read on to see what I discovered with the X300.
