Today we test on OCinside.de the big Crucial MX500 SSD with 2TB capacity! Already some months ago we tested the Crucial MX500 with 1TB, which performed well. However, since some users don’t get along with 1TB total size, we now take a close look at Crucial’s largest MX500 SSD to date and compare it with dozens of other SSDs. Can the big MX500 2TB SSD keep up with the fast MX500 1TB SSD? We show this in the following review!
On OCinside.de we tested an external Orico PCM2-C3-GY USB 3.1 Gen2 case together with a Crucial P1 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD.

A few weeks ago we reviewed the Crucial MX500 1TB SSD in 2.5-inch format and today we are testing the Crucial MX500 1TB SSD as M.2 version on OCinside.de. In the review we show the differences between the MX500 2.5-inch vs. M.2 SSD and test the M.2 both with and without passive M.2 heatsink on the ASRock Z390 Extreme4 motherboard. So we can be curious whether the small surcharge to the M.2 SSD is worth it and how well the … Continue reading Crucial MX500 1 TB M.2 SSD Review
Today we test the Icy Dock FlexCage MB973SP-1B removable frame. Homeserver or self-built or finished NAS solutions are gaining popularity again. Almost all finished network attached storages have so-called hot-swap bays, which makes it easy to change the hard disks. But what if the performance of a NAS is not sufficient, but you don’t want to do without the comfort of the hot-swap bays? Many consumer cases or 19-inch cases in the lower price segment only have internal 3.5-inch and … Continue reading Icy Dock MB973SP-1B FlexCage Review
Everyone’s talking about the cloud. In this way, large companies achieve a reduction in IT costs and shift responsibility to the cloud provider. But cloud storage is also becoming increasingly important for private users. The goal is to store large amounts of data securely and with high availability and to be able to access them from anywhere. However, the data should be stored in your own home if possible in order to have a certain degree of security. Therefore, today … Continue reading Synology DS218+ NAS Review
Who doesn’t know it? Programs and games are getting bigger and bigger but there is no more room for additional SSDs in the case. The Icy Dock FlexiDock MB524SP-B should help.

A few weeks ago Crucial introduced their new MX500 series with 64 Layer 3D TLC NAND. After the MX100, MX200 and MX300 follows not the MX400 SSD, but now the MX500 SSD. The Crucial MX500 is available in capacities from 250GB over 500GB and 1TB up to 2TB and offers a number of features designed to provide greater stability and data security. In our previous test of the Crucial BX300 we were already enthusiastic about the Silicon Motion SMI 2258 … Continue reading Crucial MX500 1 TB SSD Review
The new Samsung SSD 860 Pro and Samsung SSD 860 Evo 2.5-inch SSDs which are available from 250GB over 500GB, 1TB, 2TB up to 4TB total capacity are being tested on OCinside.de. The EVO and PRO are looking almost identical and they are fast at first glance, but why are their prices so different? We also take a second look at the two brand-new Samsung SSDs and show the differences between the Samsung SSD 860 PRO and Samsung SSD 860 … Continue reading Samsung SSD 860 Pro vs Samsung SSD 860 Evo Review

So much in advance: It was a success!
Today, we test the Intel 600p 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD on OCinside.de. The Intel SSD 600p supports PCIe Gen3 x4 and that is already one sign for high performance.

In the following review you will find some benchmarks, a large SSD benchmark comparison, infrared thermal images of this Intel SSD 600p as well as tips for the correct NVMe SSD installation.

The matching USB 3.1 Type-C cable and USB-C to USB 3.1 Type-A cable are included in the delivery. In the following Samsung Portable SSD T5 review we will clarify if the performance … Continue reading Samsung T5 500 GB Portable USB 3.1 SSD Review
Today, we test the brand new Plextor M8SeGN 512 GB M.2 NVMe SSD. Who already knows the numerous M.2 reviews on OCinside.de, is familiar with the advantages of a NVMe SSD: high performance!

We test the Crucial MX300 525GB M.2 SSD and compare the benchmarks with SSDs from Intel, Samsung and other SSDs. Another subject is particularly interesting at M.2 SSDs and that is the temperature of M.2 SSDs. For this reason we have taken pictures with a thermal imaging camera and even published a M.2 thermal video in our OCinside … Continue reading Crucial MX300 525 GB M.2 SSD Review
