Great Replacement For Samsung 970 3/22/2020 8:51:06 AM

Pros: Super-fast drive at a reasonable price and it goes on sale.
No compatibility problems - I've used the drive 500 GB and 1 TB sizes in multiple desktops with different manufacturers motherboards and multiple different vendor laptops without a single issue.

Cons: Not quite as fast as the Samsung 970 Evo Plus

Overall Review: Got this drive on sale and put it into a friends HP Laptop that came stock with a SATA M.2 drive. The M.2 connector supports both SATA and NVMe drives. Initial benchmarks showed 500 mbps read and 250 write with the stock SATA drive. The EX950 benchmarked at 1700 read and 1650 write, a huge and noticeable improvement. I've installed this drive in 1 TB size in both my Dell Alienware Laptop and an Asus motherboard desktop and the benchmarks are just under what you get with a Samsung 970 Evo Plus, about 3000 read and 2500 write. It's doubtful that you would notice the difference. Highly recommended.

Upgrade from SSD with a price to be proud of 2/29/2020 6:44:39 PM

Pros: Will be buying more of these without hesitation!
Price vs Performance
Amazing Specs when comparing to other brands
Max Bandwidth is much increased compared to SSD

Overall Review: This is the only M2 drive I've tried, and I was blown away by the speed compared to a Samsung SSD that I replaced. I have not done any drive benchmarks, just manual copy and WOW! Reading the specs this thing sounds amazing compared to other drives.

basically same as 970 evo pro 2/17/2020 11:22:21 PM

Pros: I install a lot of drives, a hundred or so in the last year. this drive is extremely fast and in my opinion is basically the same as the 970 evo pro but for almost half the price. only a few edge cases where the evo beats this drive. stupid fast boot times and really fast file transfers. most of the time these drives are used on 3rd gen Ryzen systems to move and render files from an external device, to the NVME, then to NAS or HDD. pair this with a mobo with thunderbolt and you'll see some really nice external transfer speeds.

Cons: I can't think of any cons.

Overall Review: be sure to get the right motherboard if you want this to be the default boot. I prefer the Asrock B450 promotory. It plays very nice with this drive and never has any issues. Windows or Ubuntu installs in a few minutes.

Great SSD 1/24/2020 2:08:25 PM

Pros: Fast, affordable, quality product.

Cons: Not PCIe Gen4, Optane or 100% SLC.

Overall Review: A wonderful SSD well worth the cost. As good as the EVO Plus and any other Gen3 SSD.

With the small exception of SUPER-extended writes where 970 Pro wins. But how many times do you write 100GB+ without pause?

Stupid fast for as cheap as it is 1/13/2020 8:26:13 PM

Pros: Very fast for PCIe 3.0

Overall Review: I'm much happier than I expected to be buying an SSD made by HP (whoever really made it I don't know). It's very zippy, and on a 200 GB copy from a SATA SSD over USB 3 it did the whole copy without slowing down. I don't know if it's still faster than 540 MB/s without the buffer, or if the buffer is just huge, but it works for me.
