Decent pricing for a speedy 1TB SSD, Only drive needed for a gaming pc. [Jul '19 Richfart]


Pretty much offered the highest value for capacity ever SSD. Has a fast NVMe interface and very high (2TB) capacity for like 200 USD. But because majority of this SSD's speed relies on caching, you may experience HDD-like read/write speed when the file transfer exceeds cache size. [Oct '19 ColdSpy]
