ADATA SE730H External Solid State Drive Review

>Fast portable storage is something that more and more people are starting to need. With file sizes of photos, video, and other content getting bigger we want fast storage to not only transfer these files between PCs, but to also view and work on large files or projects. Trying to work in Adobe Premiere with 4K content on a normal hard drive is not fun at all. That is where portable solid state drives come in, they are small and compact, as well as offer some serious transfer speeds. Today we are checking out the ADATA SE730H, which comes in capacities up to 512GB and offers transfer speeds of up to 500 MB/s. On top of that you have IP68 dust and waterproofing as well as military-grade shock proofing. Let's see if this is the perfect drive for all of the content creators on the go.

Kingston KC1000 960GB PCIe M.2 Solid State Drive Review

Over the past few years Kingston has delegated their high-performance products to their HyperX brand. This includes memory, solid state drives, and gaming products. It is no surprised that Kingston launched their first PCI-Express solid state drive under that brand. The HyperX Predator was released over two years and now Kingston has the KC1000 under the main Kingston brand. This is to appeal to more mainstream customers, but this drive still packs in a punch with advertised sequential read and write speeds of 2700 MB/s and 1600 MB/s respectively. Kingston powers this drive with the Phison PS5007-E7 controller and Toshiba 15nm MLC NAND. Let's see what this drive can do!

Zotac 10 Year Anniversary Sonix 480GB PCIe Solid State Drive Review

Almost a year ago now we were invited by Zotac to celebrate their 10th Anniversary and tour their factory. With the celebration they announced a few "10th Anniversary" products, one of which was the new 10 Year Anniversary Sonix 480GB PCI-Express solid state drive. The new drive boosted speeds of the drive (via firmware update) by up to 10%, changed the shroud from silver to black, and added RGB lighting to the Zotac logo on the back of the drive. When thinking about parts for our upcoming RGB build we thought this product would fit right in so Zotac sent it over for us to take a look at. Does it compete with other current PCI-Express NVMe solid state drives out there? Read on as we find out!

Unitek USB 3.0 Hub + Card Reader Review

When it comes to accessories for our PCs one that I always seem to need is a card reader. We shoot quite a lot of photos and video here at ThinkComputers and if we chose to transfer these files directly from our camera it would take forever. That is where a card reader comes in, which can take advantage of a faster USB 3.0 connection. Today we have one such card reader from Unitek, but it also comes with a 3-port USB hub as well. This makes it the perfect accessory for all of your external storage needs for your PC. Read on and see if that turns out to be true!

HP S700 Pro 512GB Solid State Drive Review

HP is a brand you've had to hear of if you been following the PC industry for any length of time. HP has been at times the world's leading PC manufacturer, and who would have thought it all started in a Palo Alto garage. In recent years HP still has a very large PC business, but they also have a very successful flash product division. The way HP solid state drives work is that HP licenses its name to other companies who build the drives, but each drive has to pass through HP's internal qualification testing before it is released. Previous HP solid state drives have gone widely unnoticed as they were more mainstream drives. Well today we are taking a look at the new HP S700 Pro which features the SMI SM2258 controller as well as Micron 3D TLC NAND, the same combination we've seen in many enthusiast 2.5-inch solid state drives. Let's jump in and see what this drive can do!

Patriot has presented us with their first ever PCI-Express M.2 solid state drive, the Hellfire. It is based off of Phison's E7 NVMe controller and comes in 240GB and 480GB versions.

ADATA XPG SX8000 PCIe M.2 Solid State Drive Review

While we got our first taste of PCI-Express solid state drives in 2016, I feel that 2017 is going to be the year of PCI-Express M.2 solid state drives. Almost every new motherboard that comes out has at least one PCI-Express M.2 slot if not more than that. PCI-Express M.2 drives are extremely fast and take up literally no space inside your case. Today we have ADATA's first PCI-Express M.2 2280 drive, the XPG SX8000. This drive offers read and write speeds of 2400 MB/s and 1000 MB/s respectively. ADATA is offering the drive in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB version. We have the 256 GB version in the test system today, let's see what it can do!

Action cameras are something that really has changed how we capture and see different moments in our lives.
