Join as we review the latest spawn from Toshiba, the Toshiba OCZ VX500 series SSDs. This new model positions itself in the mainstream SSD segment fighting with the 850 EVO series and comparable SSDs in both price and performance. It is an SSD series that is 100% Toshiba proprietary, that includes the controller and 15nm MLC NAND flash memory.
We review the new Toshiba OCZ RD400 PCIe NVME SSD. The product series is among the fastest storage unit we have had in our lab. In certain scenarios we close in at 2.6 GB/sec speeds whereas 1.6 GB/sec for writes can be considered normal. Priced attractively Toshiba seems to have the crown jewels of storage performance in their hands.

We'll be testing the RevoDrive 350 from OCZ Storage Solutions today. Let me just quickly throw some numbers at you that will get a smile on your face, so how do 1,700 ~ 1,800 MB/s maximum read and write performance sound? Yes Sir, that's the kind of performance OCZ offers to the performance aficionados in the year 2014, and exciting it surely is.
Many of you know that OCZ Technology has been in rough weather last year, that's up-to the point where the company needed to file a chapter 11 bankruptcy, with the purpose to be taken over by Toshiba. The SSD market is fierce and competitive, if you are your own NAND flash manufacturer then you can sell your products cheap. If you sell NAND flash to a party like OCZ, then OCZ pays a premium price, making it hard for them to actually offer a price competitive solution. In this Interview we'll ask to see what has happened over the past few months, and how it affects consumers and clients.
