The WD Black SN850 NVMe SSD ran neck-and-neck with Samsung's 980 Pro for fastest drive we've tested. A great drive and an especially agile writer of large files.
The Frame TV brings fine decor and art to your wall. It's excellent in that role, though it doesn't deliver Samsung's very best motion video technology.
We review the best 1080p and 4K dash cams. They record what's ahead (and sometimes what's behind), and ideally mark it with GPS, too. Exactly what you need on today's mean streets.
The Zenfox T3 3CH's three cameras give you good front, rear, and interior video. However, its bulk could make it a challenge to use in smaller vehicles.
The XPG Gammix S50 Lite's excellent real-world performance and a low price tag take the sting out of moving to a PCIe 4 SSD.
The Vava VD009 front/interior dash cam captures highly detailed day and night video, and 24-hour battery-driven surveillance mode is a major bonus.
On-ear headphone pads are smaller and sit on top of rather than over your ear. It's more comfortable than you might think, and the Marshall Major IV's excellent sound helps the experience.
If you're looking for an affordable dash cam to test the concept, there's nothing better than the Aukey Mini. It's inconspicuous, simple, effective, and costs less than $50.
The WD Black AN1500 is a RAID 0 implementation on an x8 PCIe 3.0 card that delivers near PCIe 4 SSD performance on benchmarks. It's a decent and colorful (RGB) add for gamers and creators, although it's little faster than single drives on large file transfers.
The WD My Passport SSD, redesigned and upgraded (SATA to NVMe), is fast, light, attractive, and affordable. That pretty much makes it best in class.
The Nexar Beam dash cam is inexpensive, takes great video, and has a boatload of features including free, unlimited cloud uploads. Some features require your phone.
Samsung's new 980 Pro sets performance records in end-user NVMe over PCIe 4. If you're rocking late-gen Ryzen, it'll haul the mail. With PCIe 3.0, it's just one of a crowd of top performers but at a bleeding edge price.
It provides fast network storage and a great feature set, but NVMe caching adds a lot to its price tag without delivering much in the way of hard benefits to the home user.
Nextbase's 622GW is the best dash cam on the market—bar none. Stellar 4K UHD day and night captures, plus Alexa control and the ability to summon emergency response if you're incapacitated, are just a few of the perks. The ability to accommodate the company's rear camera modules seals the deal.
