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.
Pros: It works well
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Great if you have to use sata
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!
Pros: Great performance and boot time
Cons: Died 1 year later
Overall Review: This drive worked great as a boot drive upgrade in an older desktop. Lasted a year and 2 weeks before it died.
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: used samsung software duped drive.Had 3,or 4 restarts before the laptop liked it,all fine now
Cons: new laptops are no fun to take apart.
Overall Review: it works
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.
