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]


Great budgetary nvme drive ; it has been a massive increase in speed compared to the hdd i was using . Would recommend getting a 1 tb version as with the size of recent games , that is what you'll be needing . [Jun '21 mirr123]
