On a AMD 570X system, it's amazing. 4/9/2020 4:18:12 PM

Pros: Fast
Doesn't need cables
Doesn't take up room in the case
Cost per GB higher than older drives, but faster performance cost $$$.

Cons: Other than price per GB of storage, none that I have seen.

Overall Review: I put this on a ASROCK 570 Taichi motherboard with PCI Express Gen4 x4, Ryzen 3900X. Passmark disk scores are in the 28,000 to 29,000 bracket. Userbenchmark score 353%.

I had a Rosewill PCI e parallel port add on card, the drivers for that knocked the disk score down 10,000 points. It took a while to figure out why the bench mark score dropped, thought the drive was flakey and I was about ready to RMA it until i figured out it what the problem was. I found another solution for the parallel port card, and uninstalled it's drivers, and the bench mark score is back to peak numbers now. If you you get low performance and have a PCI e add on card, take a look as it might be the problem.

Simple install, basically as fast as 970 Pro. 4/9/2020 9:53:03 AM

Pros: - Being M.2, the install for this took about 5 minutes. My motherboard has two M.2 slots, so my main drive was already an SSD and this slotted in next to it.
- Speed was comparable to the 500GB 970 PRO main drive, and a bit faster in sequential reads/writes.
- Very reasonably priced for a very good performing drive!!

Cons: - 500GB is about the bare minimum for a single drive system, if you need more - go for the 1TB.

Overall Review: - Would highly recommend to other people, in fact, I have already recommended it to people!

NvMe drive doesn’t disappoint! 4/8/2020 3:19:20 PM

Pros: Ridiculously fast load times

Cons: It gets warm in my laptop, but can’t imagine it’d be too bad in a tower.

Overall Review: I bought this as a new drive to replace the Samsung evo 840 in my laptop, as it was beginning to show its age. The old one was no slouch 5 years ago, but the technology has improved so much.

I has read and write speeds of 497 and 492 respectively on the old drive.

The new 970 Plus absolutely blew me away with 3282 and 3101 for the read and write!

This translated to a less than 10 second boot up whereas I was at maybe 25-30 seconds before. I’m no expert, so perhaps this is more attributed to it being an nvme drive compared to a data, but the difference is astounding. This is a 5 year old laptop now, it performs like new again.

Couldn’t be happier.

SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS 500GB Internal (SSD) 3/28/2020 12:44:21 PM

Pros: I just obtained this but real nice so far boots so much faster and everything on the drive fast. No heat problems and super-fast allowing Windows 10 and everything I load at the start to boot in about 30 seconds and way faster. You can boot with your old drive in after cloning and boot from the new EVO 970 and then if or when the EVO like any drive fails, you can activate the old drive and boot or clone to it again while I wait for my new EVO. Make sure you install the Samsung driver first and awesome tech Samsung!

Cons: The price compared to the same size in HDD but new tech and much faster thus I like it.

Overall Review: Yep I would recommend this if you want more speed for your OS or a drive for faster loading games etc.
