Forget The New Playstation 4.5, An SSD Is All You Need

The rumours are already flying that we’ll be getting a new PS4 soon. Well, sort of. It won’t play different games than the current PS4 does, it will just play them better. This is all in aid of making a PS4 that can handle the beefy graphics requirements of Playstation VR, and do what the original PS4 should have done: output 4K graphics.


You Can Upgrade A Macbook Faster Than You Can Boil An Egg

There’s one big drawback to Apple’s thin, svelte laptop: once you pull the trigger on a Macbook, you’re generally stuck with the specs for life. So when a company claims to offer an idiot-proof SSD upgrade, it’s worth checking out.


We Messed Up Some 'Rugged' Storage Drives With A Machete

Video: The price of solid state drives has been on a steady decline for the last year, and they’re already a top pick for easily improving the performance of your laptop, desktop or even your PS4. But they also make really fantastic external drives — if more expensive than a traditional hard drive.


There's Finally A Way To Upgrade Macbook Storage

When I bought my Macbook Pro a year ago, I was feeling so internally guilty about spending $US1500 ($2,011) on a laptop that I only paid for 128GB of storage, a decision I’ve regretted about three times per day ever since. This solution isn’t cheap, but at least it will stop me whining.


Seagate's New 10GBps SSD Will Be The World's Fastest

Seagate’s new SSD will be very, very fast indeed. In fact, able to transfer data at up to 10GBps, it’s 6GBps faster than its previous best — and it’s claimed it will be the fastest in the world.


Samsung's 16TB SSD Is Now An Actual Thing People Can Buy

Last year, Samsung made the rest of the world feel mighy inadequate by announcing a world-record 16TB SSD. Turns out that was more than just talk — Samsung is shipping drives to (very wealthy) customers today.


You Can Throw This Tonka-Tough SSD Drive Around And Your Data Will Still Be Safe

A portable SSD is already a better way to carry gigs of valuable data. The lack of moving parts means there’s less chance of the drive dying if it gets jostled, banged or accidentally dropped. But your data’s even safer with SanDisk’s updated, rugged SSD that’s now wrapped in a shock, dust and water-resistant bumper.


Good-Bye Hard Drives, SSDs Are Getting Cheaper

Solid-state drives are superior to hard drives in every way but one: they’re faster, lighter, and less fragile, but they’re also more expensive. The last one has been the only thing keeping HDDs alive, and that thread appears to be getting thinner by the day.


Apple Quietly Made The Fusion Drive Much Smaller

For the last few years, Apple’s iMacs have tried to combine the best of both storage worlds in the Fusion Drive, a SSD/hard-drive combo that’s meant to blend performance and storage capacity into one. The newly refreshed iMacs are sporting Fusion Drives, but they’re much smaller than their predecessors.


Samsung's 950 Pro Is A Massively Fast, Super-Tiny M.2 SSD

Samsung’s SSDs have always been fast. We were big fans of the 840 Pro, and its mainstream Evo variant — it was the first SSD to crack through the 1TB storage barrier. Then the 850 Pro and Evo came around, and we thought things couldn’t get too much better. As it turns out, they couldn’t — not unless Samsung tried out a new form factor and high-speed data connector.
