Restored performance to pre-Spectre, it seems

Pros: Anyway I did a couple of SSD performance tests after plugging it in and for my money (- Thanks Newegg - ) it aces the Samsung850EVO by 5X. Pretty much meets the manufacturers specs. Best part, is it makes my i5-6500, ASUSZ270 - 32GB perform about as fast as I was used to before the Spectre scare. A few times in the past I've accessed the GRC utility to disable to software mod but with all the Win10 updates that was futile. This EX950 M.2 drive 2TB absolutely restores performance when editing massive Excel files. I'm not a gamer, but running Blue Iris and a couple of Office apps can make things sluggish. Really pleased with the system now.

Cons: It wasn't a slam dunk to incorporate, because i was dumb about doing the clone in MiniTool. After rebooting, Windows 10 wants to delete all resident BootMgrs on co-located drives. I could not boot test the clone. Minitool did send me an alternate, ShadowMaker, that shuts down the computer after cloning so one can pull out the old drive. The Minitool folks were very responsive to my complaint about no shutdown in their clone disk program, but I have the Shadowmaker now & it isn't a big cost. Gonna need a new faster backup though to handle this big partition. For now I use an empty 1TB crucial SSD for Document backups.

Overall Review: Highly recommend at the pricepoint.

Large Capacity, Cheap Price, Amazing Speed !

Pros: - Runs cool
- 2TB Capacity
- Very high speed (more details under)
- Great Price (Almost half the price of other 2TB PCIe ssds, but also faster)

Cons: Virtually zero cons

Overall Review: I wanted to get rid of my 2.5'' drives and all the cluster of cables (Sata and power) and this drive saved me.
I went from a Samsung 960 Evo 500GB to this HP EX950 2TB and here are the benchmarks results using AS SSD 2.0.6821 with 3GB file size:

- Sequential Read/Write MB/s :.EX950 = 2953 / 2693 | 960 Evo = 2532 / 1579
- 4K Read/Write MB/s :...............EX950 = 57.85 / 137.61 | 960 Evo = 39.92 / 121.20
- 4K-64Thrd Read/Write MB/s :.EX950 = 1384 / 1431 | 960 Evo = 1005 / 607
- Access Time in MS :..................EX950 = 0.025 / 0.081 | 960 Evo = 0.068 / 0.093
- Final Score Read/Write:...........EX950 = 1738 / 1838 | 960 Evo = 1298 / 886
Total Score : 4461 2806

As you can see, the EX950 is a beast, it compares to a 970 evo but twice as cheap for the same capacity. The 5 Year waranty is very gracious of them.

Runs faster than the Samsung 970 Pro in my iMac

Pros: -Read speeds are on par with the 970 Pro, but the write speeds is a little bit faster than the 970 Pro.

Cons: -None yet, I will update if any comes up

Overall Review: I installed this into my 2017 iMac using an adapter, and it works flawlessly. It runs a little faster than the Samsung 970 Pro I had in here for the previous year. You cannot beat the price per performance and storage.

Ordered from this website on 9th April

Pros: Newegg ships it from City of industry CA, the item was shipped to a facility in Richmond, BC on 12th

Cons: But the awesome people who deliver it say, they can deliver it from BC to Toronto only on the 25th

Overall Review: If this is going to be the usual cases for shipping products from across the border, buyers beware.
I already spoke t newegg rep, he says their partner dropped it off at BC and their responsibility ends there, only Puropost can be accountable for the delay ...

HP EX950 2TB

Pros: It is more responsiveness than the Samsung 860Evo 1TB and the 840 Pro I had. Probably the best gb per cent ratio M.2 SSD out in the market currently. Currently I have written 3.8TB on the drive itself, for the 2TB version the SLC cache peaks out around 500GB file transfer. Meaning if you are moving a folder larger than 500GB at any given time, once the SLC cache peaks out you would see a substantially write down from 500-600mb/s range down to less than 10mb/s range. At 50% drive storage capacity read is at 3503mb/s and write 2843mb/s. At 83% drive storage capacity read at 3430mb/s and write 1396mb/s.

Cons: Runs normal at high 30s Celsius. However, during initiating drive for formatting (accidentally uncheck quick format) I saw it shoot up to 74C in matters of 2-3 minutes. Once I put a case fan directly over it, keep it down below 50C. Still a TLC drive with a large SLC caching. Write speed drop substantially after 80% drive storage capacity.
