Most Favorable Review

Every bit as good as expected

SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS M.2 2280 2TB PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.3 V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V7S2T0B/AM

Pros: Easy to install. Appears to perform the same or better than my old rig's SATA3 SSD RAID0 setup. Cheaper than ever to make the move to SSD. I paid less for this 2TB module than I did for 2x250GB in my last rig.

Cons: Nothing so far.

Overall Review: Totally worth the investment, in my opinion. I'd say the one possible concern is that the benchmarks only matched the advertised value when using Samsung Magician. Using Crystaldisk Mark and a couple others, I was generally seeing numbers only 2-4x my older SATA3 RAID0, and none that got much higher than 50% of Samsung's number. Also, I'm not certain how much of the 2-4x bump was due to the across the board upgrade my new rig provided. Regardless, it's still an upgrade in the end, and for a better price than in the past. Totally worth it.
