The Silicon Power XD80 delivers a lot of bang for the buck, though capacities other than 1TB are currently in short supply.

While only an average performer among 10Gbps USB drives, the LaCie Portable SSD's unique and attractive design, as well as its svelte form factor make it one of our favorites
Adata's follow-on to the S70, the XPG Gammix S70 Blade replaces the older model's 96-layer TLC NAND with 176-layer NAND. It's a worthy competitor to the Samsung 980 Pro, and compatible with the PlayStation 5.
Crucial's P5 Plus NVMe SSD, the follow-on to the company's affordable and speedy P5, is faster and supports the latest PCIe 4 standard. But it's also going head to head with Samsung's 980 Pro price-wise.
The Seagate FireCuda 530 NVMe SSD broke all our performance records over both PCIe 3 and PCIe 4. It's pricey, but worth it for those with the need for speed.
Crucial's BX500 SATA SSD provides a lot of storage for the price and excellent everyday performance.
In a world where even some of the best gaming accessories can feel superfluous, the Seagate Gaming Dock fits right in as a slick-looking, purpose built alternative to just expanding your storage space with an additional or external hard-drive.
As opposed to Samsung’s X5 SSD, the T7 veers much closer to the template laid out by the T5.
It might not suit power users but if you’re after a good portable storage option that provides plenty of capacity per dollar, the Seagate BackUp Plus Slim makes a strong case for itself.
This is a LaCie hard drive that’ll get the job done but it doesn’t make a good case for why it should be the SSD you go with over the other options.
If you’re looking for a solid middle-of-the-road NAS that’s got six drives and just enough guts to do justice to most potential everyday applications, the DS1618+ is a good way to go.
While the X5 is that much faster than the T5, you really have to be involved in an industry or hobby where that extra speed matters for it to really be worth the premium price.
If you’re willing to splurge on the larger sizings, the Seagate Fast SSD makes a very compelling case for itself.
The LaCie Rugged Secure is just a good if old-fashioned, outdoor-friendly external hard drive with a few modern touches.
If you’re the specialised user that Seagate is seeking out with the Copilot, rest assured, it delivers the goods. I just wish it delivered them a little cheaper, quicker and more consistently.
