As always Allan, great review. In the day and age of multiple storage options, I do have a hard time differentiating results in the tests provided. For relevance sake, and this is only a question, try and reduce compared drives for easier understandability. As in top 2 direct corporation drives (by connection type and $/Gb) and one of the others; ie SATA, mSATA, PCIe, M.2. With the ever expanding storage market,It's getting flooded,and just want easier to discern choices. In any case, you house at PCper rock! Keep up the excellent work and keep asking question as to what happens next.
