Decent ssd

Patriot Burst 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PBU480GS25SSDR
Patriot Burst 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PBU480GS25SSDR

Pros: I have owned about 3-4 of these in different sizes and they all still work . A couple are over 3 years old I believe. Pretty fast

Cons: None

Overall Review: I really like and trust the Patriot brand . I have used their Ssd's and Memory for a few years now and it's all still working. Now that M2 is out most of them have found new life in laptops and this one went into an AM3 build that I put together for my daughter . Very fast for Ssd

Most Critical Review

Screws in too tight - stripped out with provided screwdriver

ORICO TCM2-C3 Aluminium USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C NVMe M.2 Hard Drive Enclosure 10Gbps Date Transfer Rate Support UASP Protocol with Type-C to C Cable - Black
ORICO TCM2-C3 Aluminium USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C NVMe M.2 Hard Drive Enclosure 10Gbps Date Transfer Rate Support UASP Protocol with Type-C to C Cable - Black

Pros: Looks like it would be good - has more than 1 capacitor in circuitry

Cons: Screws are in way too tight . They ended up stripped out with provided screwdriver . I tried a different screwdriver - but nothing doing . They should leave out the screws like they did with the M.2 screw and riser .

Overall Review: I can't believe I waited weeks for this to come and when it finally did ... it was useless . Now I have to print a shipping label at officemax and then find a UPS store to send it back . One thing bad about online purchases ... you never know what you're going to get . And most of the reviews on here are all lumped together with a completely different item . It wasn't always like this ...

Works great - awesome speeds - 1 Tb models

Seagate FireCuda 530 M.2 2280 1TB PCIe Gen4 x4 NVMe 1.4 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ZP1000GM3A013
Seagate FireCuda 530 M.2 2280 1TB PCIe Gen4 x4 NVMe 1.4 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ZP1000GM3A013

Pros: Bought 4 of these - but decided to do 2 in Raid 0 on an Asus ProArt X570 motherboard . I tried using my 3rd slot and and add-on card to join the other 2 for a storage drive - but it made it dynamic and killed the trim feature . I decided to keep the other 2 as backups and ordered a 2 Tb model for my 3rd nvme slot . Anyways these are awesome fast reliable drives and I think they are better than Samsung right now . You will be happy spending the extra money in the long run I'm thinking .

Cons: None as of yet

Overall Review: Awesome drives - awesome speeds - awesome reliability . Just awesome !!!

Works as it should and happy with purchase - 2 Tb model

PNY XLR8 CS3040 2TB M.2 NVMe Gen4 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - M280CS3040-2TB-RB
PNY XLR8 CS3040 2TB M.2 NVMe Gen4 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - M280CS3040-2TB-RB

Pros: Has an awesome TBW and 5 year warranty . I am using it for a storage drive and running it off the Asus ProArt X570 chipset . I am sure it would be faster if on the cpu but more than happy with the speeds I am getting . My O.S. is in Raid 0 and gets well over 10k mb speeds . Probably a bit overkill for a storage drive - but should last longer than I do with the heavy reads / minimal writes it will see .

Cons: Absolutely none so far ...

Overall Review: I run Seagate 530's on my O.S. drive and wanted a similar endurance for the storage drive without breaking the bank . This came in 2Tb's at a bit over 10 cents a Gig . Just what the doctor ordered ... LoL

works for adding sata drives

4-Port SATA III 6Gbps PCIE RAID Host Controller Card Support HyperDuo SSD Tiering IPFS Hard Disk Port Multiplier Marvell 88SE9230 Chipset
4-Port SATA III 6Gbps PCIE RAID Host Controller Card Support HyperDuo SSD Tiering IPFS Hard Disk Port Multiplier Marvell 88SE9230 Chipset

Pros: Good way to add sata drives when pcie lanes used disable any available

Cons: Could not access the online configuration utility so no hyperduo or hardware raid . Was able to make a raid array using storage spaces in windows so no biggie

Overall Review: It is on the pcie 2.0 level but really doesn't matter because it still give sata 3 speed . It is technically pcie 2.0 X 4 . Did not work as I wanted but still gave me 4 sata deviceson the card and 4 on the motherboard . 2 of the motherboard sata connectors are disabled when I use my 3rd nvme drive . I still rely on sata for backup and storage - plus I like having my optical and hot swap bays . They are better than external drives because of the direct sata connection versus usb . Overall I am happy with purchase

Purchased over a 550 motherboard

ASUS TUF B450-PLUS GAMING AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS TUF B450-PLUS GAMING AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Like it because it is compatible with most all of the Ryzen Cpu's . I threw a 3200G in it so I had a system to use while my 570 motherboard was being repair . Really snappy system - everything seems to work as advertised

Cons: I didn't find anything . I knew going in what I was getting so not having a certain feature can't really be a con

Overall Review: Good solid board . I usually buy this brand before I consider anything else just because I haven't had any issues with their other boards and products

Unusable

Unit keeps dropping connection and even when it does connect - it is really slow . 3rd one I have tried and they all are bad . Pay for something better or just hook whatever you need it for directly through the router . I wanted mine for a magicJack but finally just bought a new phone system and kept the main base next to the router

Slow delivery this time

Slow delivery due to protests - item was what I wanted to repair a hot swap fixture
