Western Digital's WD Red SA500 is a solid-state-disk optimized for NAS usage, either as cache drive or for primary storage. With a price of $140 for 1 TB, the SSD is priced more aggressively than Seagate's IronWolf 110 NAS competitor, yet offers similar performance and still retains the five-year warranty.

The TerraMaster F5-422 is a 5-bay NAS featuring one 10 GbE and two Gigabit ports. It achieves good throughput in multi-client scenarios, but IOPS performance could be better. It still is a solid, affordable choice for users who do not need the software packages other NAS vendors provide.

The ASUS Radeon RX 5600 XT STRIX TOP uses the same cooler and PCB design as the RX 5700 XT STRIX OC, which makes this a massively overbuilt design. Thanks to a 10-phase GPU VRM paired with low voltages, the card is actually more power efficient than NVIDIA's Turing lineup.

Dream Machines is back with another right-handed ergonomic mouse. Equipped with a PMW3389 sensor, Huano switches for most buttons, Dream Machines' highly flexible "shoelace" cable, and an impressive set of RGB lighting, the DM4 Evo should be worth a look not just for those on a budget.

The Team Group Delta Max RGB SSD offers truly impressive RGB illumination that can be synced with your motherboard's lighting effects. Each of the LEDs can be controlled separately, both in color and brightness. Performance is also very decent due to the combination of the SMI controller with some Samsung TLC flash.

With just $50 for the tested 512 GB model, the BIOSTAR M700 M.2 NVMe SSD is the most affordable SSD we ever reviewed, even cheaper than most 2.5" SATA drives. Thanks to its fast PCIe x4 3.0 interface paired with an SMI controller, performance is good, too. Is there any reason left to buy a 2.5" SATA SSD?
