Starting with the build quality of the PNY XLR8 Pro we have a drive which uses one of the thickest and therefore most robust feeling cases around. It really does feel solid while maintaining a reasonably low weight. Inside we find a decent level of...

PNY is a name normally associated with Nvidia-based consumer graphics cards, and maybe the odd memory modules. In fact it makes a whole range of memory-based hardware too. It's therefore no surprise to see a range of SSDs in its lineup, from desktop...

Le XLR8 Pro 480 Go propose une belle prestation avec l'avantage de la compression à la volée. Il est toutefois pénalisé par ses 3 ans de garantie (5 ans pour les modèles concurrents Samsung et Intel), ses performances légèrement en retrait et son gabarit...
