I will mention that my SSD isn't the same one in the picture, if yours is performing badly compared to others check the contacts that go into the motherboard. Without even taking out you can tell mine isn't the same

Best price to performance ratio

Prettyyy, prettyy good. Not worth buying anything more expensive.

Since it's QLC during constant use or transfer of large files slows down to speeds lower than HDDs

Wanted 1TB NVMe SSD at reasonable price? This SSD caters to budget constrained users whom looks for both high speed transfer and high capacity for their use cases such as video editing, storing games and more. This SSD costs 10 dollar more than SATA 3 equivalent 1TB SSD yet provided faster transfer speed which makes this a worthy purchase provided if you increase your budget by little bit.

I don't like how it uses QLC technology. degrades faster and is overall slow. Wouldn't recommend

Perfect Value NVME. Unnoticeable to Samsung users. Does not read 4k as fast as samgsung. Purchased for $95. Have bought 3 for all my builds

New to M.2. A little disappointed I couldn't get it set up as a boot drive. Lightning fast and will not be returning to SSD other than to fuse it with a huge HDD for storage. This is an incredible amount of tech.
