Better than the ADATA drives SX6000/SX7000. Not the very best in performance but makes up in endurance because Samsung EVO at this capacity only has 100TBW but this drive has 350 TBW. I know most don't care about TBW but I do because I unrar/quickpar 50GB-100GB per UHD movie (x 6 or x 7 times a day). Seems faster than advertised speed, see attached image from my own computer.

$99.99 - $10 coupon

Good luck!

You think this drive will crash? Don't worry I'll let you know in a month. I write to my NVMe drives about 10TB a month. My Samsung Evo died within a year. I don't even bother with the warranty claim with Samsung Evo.

Evo IS garbage, it is TLC.... my major concern for this drive is the controller and potential recycled memory chips

Remember to clip 10% coupon - and add free hat into cart.

Also uses PCI x4 slot, which isn't found on most motherboards, therefore requiring an x16 slot to run full speed.

+1 for caring about tbw. My MBP can easily write a 2-3 TB in a week due to swapping (even with 16GB ram), so for my hackintosh I worry about the same thing happening with a lesser ssd
