Samsung 128GB SSD
Review of Samsung 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 128 GB by danielclark691

Advantages: Great quality, reliable, hi performance, affordable.
Disadvantages: This is not the latest model.

First impressions When it comes to computers and technology a lot of people do not have the first idea about specifications and what to look out for. I wouldn’t say I am an expert, though having upgraded a few of my personal and business laptops I ... Read review

My Book Mac Edition is great for long-term storage of files
Review of Western Digital My Book Mac Edition 2TB by sharpev25

Advantages: lots of space for the money
Disadvantages: a little clunky, fragile

In my opinion, this is an excellent product, particularly for full backups of your system. I use one of these at work (I'm a researcher, so we have a LOT of data that needs to be kept safe) and one at home for personal things (especially photos). It's a g ... Read review

Absolutely awful
Review of Seagate Desktop SSHD STCL4000400 4 TB by thisoldman65

Advantages: Relatively quiet
Disadvantages: 8GB SDD too small, very slow on mechanical drive, costs too much to use solely as a storage drive

I do like SSDs a lot. They are very fast and breathe new life into tattered old computers by making them much more responsive. SSDs (solid state drives) run up to 4 times faster than their mechanical counterparts and are completely silent as there are no ... Read review

Nice little storage unit
Review of HGST Touro Mobile MX3 HTOLMX3EA5001ABB 500 GB by BaylissSR

Advantages: small, light, portable, cheap, USB 3.0
Disadvantages: USB cable supplied is short, which is a pain in the ass for working with desktops

I use this for drive image backups at work. USB 3.0 is great and only hampered by the fact it spins at 5400 rpm. Dependent on your needs and size of files, you may want to consider a portable SSD now that they are so cheap. I got it on sale for around £2 ... Read review

By far the best upgrade to speed up your computer.
Review of Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 250 GB by SN1P3RSK33T

Advantages: Super fast compared to HDD, Great software, No noise, light
Disadvantages: Can be a pain to install if your upgrading an OEM machine.

I installed this in my laptop about 9 months ago and the performance increase is amazing! I bought an expensive gaming laptop about a year ago and although it was quicker than my previous laptop it kept slowing down at times. A look in task manager revea ... Read review

LaCie Rugged Hard Drive 500GB
Review of LaCie Rugged Hard Disk 301905 500 GB by danielclark691

Advantages: Very tough design, quick transfer rates.
Disadvantages: May want to buy the larger capacity.

First impressions I have and still do own a few external hard drives and what I find is that most of them are designed to be slimline, compact, or just plain boring black in colour. The shape or design is not innovative, though I suppose you could ... Read review

Western Digital Elements 1TB Portable Hard Drive
Review of WD Elements Portable WDBUZG0010BBK-NESN 1 TB by danielclark691

Advantages: Compact, prompt transfer of data, easy to use.
Disadvantages: Some may prefer a larger storage capacity.

First impressions The Western Digital brand is one that I have had some past experience with. I have bought a few of their hard drives and also had hard drives already fitted to laptops I have bought. I have had good and bad experiences, though the ... Read review

Probably uses M.2 because the M1 is always congested
Review of Crucial MX200 500GB by thisoldman65

Advantages: Great value for money for a new interface SSD card
Disadvantages: Runs at SATA 3 speeds, not PCI-Express

I decided a few days ago that 128GB of storage was not enough. It simply wasn’t. You can put only the essentials on there, but then one day when you are fumbling around with all your external storage to get data to and from your machine, you’d realize it ... Read review

Review of WD Black WD3200BEKT 320 GB by danielclark691

Advantages: Affordable, reliable, good capacity.
Disadvantages: Slow compared to SSD.

First impressions Over the years I have seen and sought laptops with larger hard drives, seeing them as an upgrade from smaller hard drive models. There is a lot more that affects the speed and capacity of your laptop, though, so by just increasing ... Read review

Keeping my memories safe
Review of Verbatim Store 'n' Go USB 3.0 1TB by ANNExTHExFLAN

Advantages: Simple to use. Very fast transfer. Safe and secure. In built programmes for use with the drive.
Disadvantages: No disadvantages.

Whilst I am happy to use the old fashioned methods of CDs and USB flash drives to store my photographs, my husband insists that we should also use an external hard drive that is stored outside of the home for full back up even if we should have a fire at ... Read review
