Best SSD For 2020: a new SSD (Solid State Drive/ M.2 SSD)

best ssd2020. Best Solid State Drives (ssd) and M.2 SSDs for 2020! Solid State Drives make the best performance upgrade for your desktop or laptop! Why? Because they are fast. Very fast. And fortunately the price has dropped dramatically over the last years while the capacity of data storage has greatly improved. Now a good SSD or M.2 SSD with 250 GB or higher is surprisingly affordable. 

There are a few ‘big’ players on the SSD market: Samsung, Crusial, Kingston, Scandisk and Toshiba. With Samsung having the biggest market share. Samsung and Toshiba produce their own controllers and flash memory. The other manufacturers only produce the flash memory in their own factories.  

On this website I have selected the 3 best Solid State Drives today.

SSD vs HDD

The main advantage of SSD above HDD is the speed. SSD`s are incredibly fast compared to HHD`s but there was the problem that Solid State Drives did not have much GB`s of storage and they were expensive.  But no more ! The rapid development of the ssd has now overcome these problems. SSD`s are now available from 16 GB to 960GB and the price has dropped.

The SSD is this fast because it has no moving parts, a HDD does. This makes the SSD noise free, light weight and durable. The flash memory in the SSD delivers the data directly via the SATA 3 connector to the CPU. SSD`s are about 10 times faster than a 7200 RPM HDD.

Also the development of Chromebooks has made an impact. In these low budget laptops a small 16 GB ssd is build in because the bulk of the programs are stored on-line and not on the internal memory anymore. Because of the solid state drive chromebooks are very very fast. So, for the near future I see the HDD fading out slowly and the SSD taking its rightful place as cheap, fast and most used core memory in netbooks, laptops and desktops.

#1 ) Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III

The best and most popular SSD on the market today is without doubt the Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series. At around $130 for the 250 GB version this is not the cheapest SSD but it is the best for a good price with proven quality.

Here is the link for the more expensive Samsung 850 Pro series SSD (costs around $60 more but better specs)


 

#2) Crucial MX100 512GB SATA 2.5″ 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive

This SSD from Crucial is the cheaper (around $115 for 256 GB version) option but it has good specs and performance.  The 512 GB version that I recommend here has more than enough GB memory for a normal laptop or desktop. Crusial can make the SSD cheaper by using a new production method which makes better use of the flash memory. With this method the SSD needs less chip surface to reach the required capacity.

#3) Kingston Digital 240GB SSDNow V300 SATA 3 2.5 (7mm height) with Adapter Solid State Drive

The Kingston SSD is the cheapest (around $ 90 for the 240 GB version) in this top 3 list but for this money it has good speed and specs. Dont expect the same performance as the Samsung and the Crusial but when you want to replace your HDD with a cheap and decent SSD This Kingston SSD will do the trick. You will be amazed by the performance boost.

Best Desktop Computers 2020 (February)

desktop apple-imac

Jan/Feb 2020. Best Desktops For 2020. On this website we review good, affordable Apple, Windows, family, college, gaming and work/business desktops. When you want to buy a new desktop you want specs like a quad-core processor (for example: Intel I3, I5 or I7 or AMD A8 or A10), fast hard-drives SSD or HDD with 1 or 2 TB storage and plenty of DDR4 RAM, and reliable sound and graphics cards so that gaming and heavy duty graphic programs can run smoothly, as well as playing HD movies.

The best PC brands today are Apple, HP, Dell, Sony, Acer and Asus.

(Disclosure: all products/ads on this site are made available in association with our partners amazon.com and Google Adsense, see privacy policy )


What performance can you expect from a desktop computer in 2020?

The speed of a desktop is mainly dependent on the quality of the central processing unit (CPU), how many CPU`s (single core, dual core, quad core), the available RAM (more internal memory is better, today desktops should have at least 4 GB) and the harddisk (SSD is much faster than regular HDD). Today you almost don’t see single core cpu’s anymore. 2 or mostly 4 cores is common. When running programs or games that use a lot of graphic processing the quality of the graphics processing unit (GPU) and/or video-card is very important.The newest Intel i3/i5/i7 cpu’s are the 9th gen cpu’s that perform better and have better power efficiency.

Intel vs AMD

When choosing a desktop computer the CPU is an important factor to consider. The CPU is the heart of the system. There are two main processor manufacturers namely Intel and AMD. The intel processors tend to perform slightly better but costs about twice as much compared to the AMD processors. The gain in performance can be noticed in high speed gaming frame rate but is hardly noticeable when using the desktop for normal use. The newest Intel CPUs are the 8th generation.

The Need For Speed

The i3 Intel series and its equivalent AMD processors are used in low end desktops for usual computer tasks like surfing the web, email and administrative tasks. These are the cheapest Intel processors with the lowest processing power. The Intel i5 series and equivalent AMD processors have better performance and can be used for light/medium gaming and medium video editing/ graphical programs. The i7 Intel processors and equivalent AMD processors are the most expensive but get you the most processing power, the best gaming experience and the best basis for heavy graphical programs and video editing.

It is difficult to say that the Intel CPU`s are better than the AMD CPU’s because for the same price as one Intel core you can sometimes get more AMD cores which eliminates the performance gain that single Intel processors show in benchmark tests.

DDR3 or DDR4 RAM

In 2019 desktops mostly have the newest faster DDR4 RAM which is faster and more power efficient than the slightly older/slower DDR3. When deciding on a new desktop I suggest you buy one with DDR4 RAM.

Separate or integrated GPU?

Desktops for normal household use like the Intel I3 and I5 or the AMD A6 and A8 have integrated Graphics in the CPU. You don’t need a separate graphics-card. But for more heavy duty video editing and gaming you want to have the CPU and a separate graphics-card doing its own task. This is more expensive but greatly improves the frame-rate in gaming and speed in video editing.

Tower Desktop, All-in-One or Stick-PC?

Desktop computers are available in three varieties: tower desktops, all-in-one (AiO) desktops and mini-desktops/desktops on a stick. A tower desktop usually does not include a monitor, so you will need to buy one, which adds to the total price, or use one that you already have. In an All-in-One desktop the computer components are build in in the monitor. This makes All-in-One desktops generally more expensive than a tower desktop without monitor. An AiO desktop saves space but it is more difficult to build in extra components if you want to do that. Also, you are stuck with the integrated screen and can not replace it with a new monitor later on. There are advantages and disadvantaged for both choices. Then there are the mini desktops/stick desktops.

On this website you will first find my recommendation for the best (tower and All-in-One) desktops and after that you will find my choices for the best Intel i3, i5 and gaming desktops and the Best desktops for the money (under $500)

Best Desktop To Buy 2019: Acer Aspire Desktop, 9th Gen Intel Core i5-9400, 12GB DDR4, 512GB SSD

The best new desktop at the moment in my opinion is the Acer Aspire Desktop PC, Intel Core i5 9th Gen Intel Core i5-9400, 12GB DDR4, 512GB SSD with Keyboard and Mouse.

Why? because it has the combination of the newest 9th Generation power efficient Intel i5 9400 processor (up to 4.1Ghz) together with the newest very fast 12GB DDR4 Memory (2666MHz) memory. DDR4 is in today’s new desktops a must and 12 Gb RAM is more than enough for any demanding graphics program or game at high settings. The very reliable i5 processor has integrated Intel 630 UHD graphics which delivers good performance for everyday use. OS: Windows 10. It has a 512 GB SSD which is fast and gives more than enough storage space.

Price/Quality

You can get all this for a very good price around $550 at the time of writing this post.

Looking at price-quality and value for money this new Acer tower desktop is my choice for ‘best desktop 2020’. It is also one of the best selling desktops on Amazon at the time of writing.

2nd Best All-in-One Desktop Computer: Flagship Dell Inspiron 23.8″ All-in-One Full HD IPS Touchscreen Desktop

The 2nd best AiO desktop today is the Newest 2018 Flagship Dell Inspiron 23.8″ All-in-One Full HD IPS Touchscreen Desktop It has the latest Intel Pentium Quad-Core J3710 1.6GHz Processor(2M Cache, up to 2.64 GHz) processor with Intel Integrated Graphics.

It also includes integrated/built-in stereo speakers tuned with Waves MaxxAudio solution for excellent sound and a wireless keyboard and mouse.

I have chosen this Dell AiO desktop to be the 2nd best AiO desktop mainly because of the price/quality. Dell is a respected manufacturer of quality desktops and for the price a desktop with these specs, including a Dell 23.8 inch Full HD monitor is a very very good deal! You get the whole package with everything you need to start right away. For that reason this desktop is also one of the best selling All-in-One desktops for family, college and work/business.

Accessories/ Keyboard and Mouse

Here are some recommendations for a good keyboard and mouse that you need for your new desktop.


Best Intel i3 and equivalent AMD Desktops

These are cheaper desktops for basic tasks like text editing, emailing and surfing the web. Intel i3 and AMD equivalent processors are not the fastest on the block but they do their job properly. The price range for the desktops below, depending on the type of processor, amount of RAM, All-in-one or just the desktop without monitor etc, is between $300 and $580. You can click through to see the specs and price.

Best Intel i5 Desktops 2019

The price for these mid-range desktops are around $600 to $800. With the Intel i5 processor and 8 Gb of RAM they are fast and can perform well when doing multiple tasks or when you have several programs running at the same time. You can do video editing or gaming at a reasonable fps with these desktops at medium settings which makes them the best desktops for a family home or small to medium sized businesses. The Acer AiO desktop and the Apple iMac which I choose as the best All in One and the best Apple desktop also use a i5 processor. The newest i5 processor is the Skylake 6th gen Intel i5 processor.

AMD Desktops

AMD processors have less processing power then Intel processors but are about half the price. So, for the same price you can buy a better AMD processor. For example: for the same price as an Intel i3 processor which is a duo core processor you have a quad core AMD A10 processor which is similar in performance. AMD processors benefit from a good amount of fast RAM memory. Therefore you will normally see more GB RAM installed in the desktop. Especially for graphics in games and video editing you will find better/ separate graphic-cards in AMD desktops then in Intel desktops for the same price because the processor is cheaper.

Best Budget Under $500 Desktops

When you just want a pc to do some everyday email, internet/ social media, watch an occasional movie or do some text editing or light gaming (no MMORPG) then, a cheaper, more affordable budget computer is the best choice. The specs are not as good as the more expensive desktops have, so don`t expect the fastest performance. If speed and specs are not the most important then the following recommendations are everything you need for a good price. Also check out the refurbished desktops which are good value for money.p>

 

An interesting choice under $500 is the LG Chromebase. It is based on Google Chrome and it boots in seconds. All Google apps like Gmail/ youtube/ docs etc run in the Chrome environment so you don’t have to worry about updates, virus protection etc. It has a 16 Gb SSD for fast performance despite the 1.4 GHz processor for an appealing price. A good family budget desktop.

#2 Best Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor: Omron 7 Series

My recommendations for best blood pressure monitor is the Omron 7 series wrist blood pressure monitor (price around $55). It automatically activates when your wrist is at heart level and a flashing blue indicator light confirms when in the correct position. With a wrist blood pressure monitor this is important to have consistent and accurate readings.

Nov/Dec 2019. Best Christmas Gifts 2019: Gaming Desktops. When looking for a good Christmas gift look no further: a gaming desktop will be very much appreciated! We review and recommend gaming desktops in the affordable, mid- and high end budget range. When you want to buy a new Gaming Desktop you want specs like at least a quad-core processor (for example: Intel I5 or I7 or A6, A8 or A10 or higher), fast hard-drives like a SSD for the operating system and a big HDD with 1 or 2 TB for storage and plenty of DDR4 RAM. You also want to see reliable sound and graphics cards so that gaming and heavy duty graphic programs can run smoothly, as well as playing HD movies.

The best Gaming PC brands today are Dell, HP, iBUYPOWER, SKY tech, OMEN, ROG and CYBERPOWER.

(Disclosure: all products/ads on this site are made available in association with our partners amazon.com and Google Adsense, see privacy policy )


What performance can you expect from a gaming desktop computer?

The speed of a gaming desktop depends on the quality of the central processing unit (CPU), single core, dual core, quad core etc, the available RAM (more internal memory is better: gaming desktops should have at least 4 GB). Besides the CPU the type of harddisk your OS runs on makes a big difference: a SSD is more expensive but much faster than a regular HDD. Today you almost don’t see single core cpu’s anymore. 2 or 4 cores is usual in regular desktops, at least 4 or more in gaming systems. When running programs or games that use a lot of graphic processing like high speed games on higher settings the quality of the graphics processing unit (GPU)is crucial. The newest Intel i3/i5/i7 cpu’s are the 9th gen cpus that perform better and have better power efficiency.

When choosing a desktop computer the CPU is an important factor to consider. The CPU is the heart of the system. There are two main processor manufacturers namely Intel and AMD. The intel processors tend to perform slightly better but cost about twice as much compared to the AMD processors. Therefore, for about the same price as a 4 core intel CPU you can get a gaming rig with a 6 or more core AMD CPU or you can buy one with a better GPU.

DDR4 RAM

Newer Gaming desktops mostly have the newest DDR4 RAM which is faster and more power efficient. This can give you a massive gain in frame rate on higher settings.

Separate or integrated GPU?

Cheaper gaming Desktops with a CPU like the I5 or the AMD A6 and A8 have integrated Graphics in the CPU. You don’t need a separate graphics-card because it is build in, but in gaming those build in gpus give only average performance on low to medium settings. For more serious gaming than casual gaming you want to have the CPU and a separate graphics-card doing its own task. This is a bit more expensive but greatly improves the frame-rate and visuals on higher settings.

Best budget/ affordable gaming Desktop 2019: Dell Inspiron Gaming PC Desktop AMD Ryzen 7 2700

The best gaming desktop at the moment in my opinion is the Dell Inspiron Gaming PC Desktop with AMD Ryzen 7 2700 Processor, 16GB DRAM, 1TB HDD, AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB GDDR5 Graphics Card, Windows 10 64-bit, Blue LED with Keyboard and Mouse.

This is in my opinion the best budget gaming rig because it has the combination of the newest 4.1 GHz AMD Ryzen 7 2700 Processor with 4 cores, together with the very fast 16 GB DDR4 memory. An AMD CPU always needs a lot of RAM for optimal performance and 16 GB is more than enough for any demanding graphics program or game at higher settings. OS: Windows 10. Because it is a budget gaming pc it doesn’t have a SSD but the latest High capacity, High speed 1TB 7200 Rpm SATA drive. This gives you more than enough storage space for a lot of games. Graphics card: Amd Radeon RX580 Graphics with 4GB GDDR5

You can get all this for a very, very good price under $700 at the time of writing this post. When looking at price-quality and value for money this Dell gaming desktop is my choice for ‘best gaming pc 2019’. It is also one of the best selling desktops on Amazon at the time of writing.

Best mid range gaming Desktop

Gaming PCs in the medium price range cost between $800 and $2000. They have better CPUs, better graphic cards and mostly SSD harddrives for faster performance with added HDD for storage.


Best high end gaming Desktop

High end gaming rigs are pricy but you get the best performance, graphic cards and therefore the highest fps on the highest settings in any of the graphic intensive games today.High end gaming PCs feature liquid cooling, Intel I9 and comparable CPUs like the Intel Core i9-9900K Eight Core Processor (16MB Cache, 3.6GHz-5.0GHz) 95W w/ Liquid Cooling, up to 32GB DDR4 3000MHz RAM and 1TB NVMe Solid State Drives

Also the apps and the screen quality are much better with Always-On Retina display/30% larger screen/sAMOLED display and more internal mem. Also the battery life has improved to up to 4 days with the Samsung Galaxy.

Apple vs Android smart watches

Most comparisons between the latest Apple and for example Samsung smart watches are overblown. Both are very good smart watches. The one you want to buy depends mostly on the smart phone you or the person you want to give the smart watch to as a gift has. When you have an Apple smartphone you have the choice between an Apple Smart watch or an Android/iOS smartwatch but it is normally good advise to stick with the brand smartphone you have to avoid compatibility problems. The Android smart watches are usually less expensive than the Apple smart watches.

Best Apple Smart Watch: Series 5

The best Apple smart watch is by far the new Series 5 Apple smart watch. It has the following features: GPS + Cellular, Always-On Retina display, 30% larger screen, it is Swim proof, it has an ECG app and electrical and optical heart sensors. Also handy are the built-in compass and elevation and the Emergency SOS/ International emergency calling. This is the latest Apple smartwatch. Apple has updated the specs greatly from the Series 4. The battery life is around 18 hours, which is shorter than the Samsung Galaxy 2019.

In my opinion this is the best Apple smartwatch you can get at the moment. You get all this for a very good price under $600 at the time of writing this post. When looking at price-quality and value for money this Series 5 is my choice for ‘best Apple smart watch 2019’.

Apple watch11Apple Smart Watch series 5

Best Android Smart Watch: Samsung Galaxy Smart Watch

The Samsung Galaxy smartwatch has a 1.3 Inch sAMOLED 360x 360 display and a 1.15 GHz Dual-Core processor with 0.75GB RAM 4GB internal storage memmory, the latest 2.4GHz Bluetooth v4.2 and a battery life that lasts up to 4 days. The watch has multiple sensors like an Accelerometer, Barometer, Gyro Sensor, HR Sensor and Light Sensor. Because this watch is much less costly than the Apple watch you get more value for money. The Samsung Galaxy below is less than $400 at the time of writing this review. Especially because of the value for money, the long battery life and the great looks this Samsung Galaxy smart watch is in my opinion the best Android smart watch this Christmas 2019.

For a price around $535 at the time of writing a 15.6 inch 6th gen Intel i5 laptop with these specs (especially FULL HD) is a very very good deal!

Asus 15.6-Inch Laptop (2.1 GHz Core i3-5010U,4 GB RAM,500 GB)

This Asus 15.6 inch laptop is one of the most popular laptop this Christmas. This is very logical because the specs are very good when looking at the price: around $350 at the time of writing. For that price you get: the Intel i3-5010U 2.1 GHz processor, 4 Gb RAM and a 15.6 inch FULL HD screen. A very good laptop for everyday use at home, for a student or as a laptop for your work. It does not have the extreme quality of the Apple MacBooks but has a lot to offer for about 1/5 the of the price :) that is why I put this laptop on the #2 place in the ranking.

Gadget Gifts For Adults: Drones

Best Budget Drones Under $100

My recommendations this Christmas for small budget drones as gift under $100 are the the Hubsan 4 Channel Quadcopter, the UDI 6 Axis Gyro Quadcopter and the Dromida Omnius Quadcopter. For a price under $100 you can expect a small drone which is easy to fly but doesn’t have the power/features/maneuverability that the more expensive drones have. Of the three drones shown below only the UDI Quadcopter has a HD camera for photo and video but this also means the price is higher than the two without a camera. All three are very good affordable drones to start with, to learn how to fly a drone or just to try out drone flying for fun. Never let kids fly a drone without supervision and first check out the regulations for drone flying in your area.

Tech Gifts For Adults: Weather Stations

A weather station makes a great Christmas gift!

Best Weather Staions Under $100

The best weather station I could find under $100 is the AcuRite 00622 Pro Color Weather Station with Wind Speed, Temperature and Humidity.

Includes: 3-in-1 wireless weather sensor accurately measures the temperature, humidity and wind speed, color display with adjustable dimmer; electric-powered with optional battery backup, history chart displaying temperature, wind speed and barometric pressure trends over last 12 hours and many more for around $100

Best Weather Stations around $150

For the best weather station around $150 range I recommend the Oregon Scientific WMR86 Backyard Pro Wireless Weather Station WMR86. Some of the specs include: weather forecast (sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, rainy, snowy), display of Indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, wind speed and direction, barometric reading with bar graph, rainfall reading with bar graph.

It has a integrated wind sensor tower for easy set up and atomic time, so you always have the exact time and never have to adjust for Daylight Saving Time. It also shows the moon phase.

An other very good option for around $170 (at the time of writing) is the AcuRite Pro Wireless color weather station. It has a beautyful color display and integrated rain, wind, temp and humidity meter. This wireless weather station streams real-time data including the moon phase, indoor comfort level, “feels like”” temperature and more. Highly recommended especially when looking at the low price for this much quality!

Best Christmas Trees 2019: (Artificial) Small/Mini – Big/Tall

christmas tree12019. Best (Artificial) Christmas Trees for 2019! Christmas is a time to spend with friends and family. A good looking (artificial) Christmas tree near the hearth is the best way to set the Christmas mood. Also very nice is a smaller table top Christmas tree. On this site you will find only artificial trees because real trees are very difficult to keep fresh and they will shed their needles on the floor. It is also much easier to store an artificial tree for the next year and best thing of all: most are pre-lit!

On this site I give you my recommendations for the best small Christmas trees under $25, which will look very good on a table top or in different locations in the house. After that I present the ‘Big/ Full size’ Christmas trees. A full size Christmas tree is the best place to present the Christmas presents for your loved ones!
