Pros: - Tons of space- Great price- I have prior EVO SSDs that are around 7 years old that still run fine so I see this being similar- As a media storage device the QVO is excellent, reading doesn't degrade the drive, it's the writing that does that
Cons: - NOT good for constant high volume writingThink of a 512GB NVMe, I use one to store all of my most demanding games, but that requires constantly reading and writing to it.. I've managed to get that NVMe down to 75% expected use cycles in just under 2 years. That drive is more durable than this, but the use case is different.Don't use it for the wrong use case!
Overall Review: Great for heavy reading use cases.Terrible for heavy writing use cases.
Pros: All good. Benchmarks acceptable, not record shattering.
Cons: Only negative and reason for review is to point to misprint or whatever where Newegg says it has 5 year warranty. Samsung product page shows all in QVO series are 3 year warranties.
Overall Review: Good Product. I like the performance of mine.
Overall Review: Using for game storage. I was using a Seagate barracuda 7200rpm hard drive before, so I'm getting way faster load times now with this ssd. If u purchase a Samsung drive definitely install the Samsung magician and enable rapid mode. Rapid mode on increased read and write speeds 3x. So, I'm getting 3000+ mb/s read and write sequential speeds.
Pros: It works well
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Great if you have to use sata
Pros: Quick arrival, easy install, and minimal packaging. Couldn't be happier.
Overall Review: Great product so far. Hopefully it'll last for a long time.
Pros: Fast on both read and write. Cooled the box with the reduced power sby witching from WD Hard Drives to SSD. Box runs 8C cooler, CPU 2C cooler without the old spinners.
Cons: Still a bit pricey but not out of line with current TB SSD prices
Overall Review: Installed and formatted quickly as a GPT ext4 drive on a Ubuntu system. Set trim to be run after free space drops below 100GB to extend SSD life. Using it as a data disk with a separate 256GB SSD for system disk. As always SAMSUNG rules!
Overall Review: Got this on sell for $128.00. Great 2tb SSD for gaming.
I diefinsty wouldn't pay the $199 price tag for it though
Pros: - Cheap 4TB SSD
- Faster random read/writes than an HDD
Cons: - Writes slow down once the SLC cache is filled, slower than a high end 4TB HDD for sequential writes
Overall Review: - This SSD was limited to around 160MB/s once the SLC cache was filled and was slower than my average HDD speed of 200MB/s. I transferred around 200GB of steam library games at a time. The first 50GB or so was limited by my HDD, but after that this SSD became the bottleneck.
