Beware of the QVO Product lines that contains the TurboWrite technology. After exausting the turbo write buffer the drives degrade to 80MB/s on the 1Tb models and 160MB/s on 2/4Tb - https://www.anandtech.com/show/13633/the-samsung-860-qvo-ssd-review Samsung somewhat points it out in the smallest print possible - https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/ssd-860-qvo-2-5-sata-iii-1tb-mz-76q1t0b-am/ Buyer beware
