These are not 4x but for most people, there is no difference as they are still 3x the speed of normal ssd.

Samsung is the best, we all know it, however it all depends on what you are going to do with it and will there be any important and irreplaceable files stored in this drive.
For example, in my case I would only need this SSD for torrenting, it offers about 5 years or 800 TWD endurance according to Amazon page for 512GB model, which translates to 400+GB writes per day, I only need about 100GB writes on this drive max a day, so it works for me, on top of it there would be another 2 years extension from my credit card.

I would say save $50 and go with this drive instead for most users. Average home users, who game or use their systems for office..etc, don't need Samsumg SSDs, IMO.

Still have my Crucial SSD in my laptop since 2012-2013 and it works just fine, there is still 70% life left according to Crystal disk, only used it for office purposes for web apps.

They're not the quickest of the type but still pretty fast. I scooped up a bunch of them to use as external SSDs.

It should work considering it's a newer model, but don't take my word for it, call the tech support or maybe try a manual?

Saw this but I figured the Evo 970 500gb was only $50 more. Peace of mind.

SSD's have limited lifespans relating to writing the disk, AKA he writes to the disk A LOT more than a normal person would. doesnt help him, just gives him peace of mind.

It doesn't if you are not a " home torrent racer" like me on private trackers. Other than that it would be waste of money, just get a normal HDD drive if you are dealing with public trackers or don't care about ratio.

There is a long term seeding and short time race for a high ratio, I do racing, so having a high speed NVMe drive does help with random writes and reads and plus lightning fast hashing for cross seeding between trackers is a bonus too. And also server reboots in my headless Ubuntu takes about 5 seconds or less in case of problems or issues thanks to my NVMe drive.

Agreed, SSDs tend to have a lesser lifespan in comparison to spinners, my case is different though, I do cross seeding and hashing and it saves me hours or maybe days, I have pretty much optimized my server to be a dedicated seedbox running in Ubuntu headless VM and turned off all kernel extra file access and directory access times to reduce overhead and minimize useless file access writes, it's perfectly optimized for torrents only on private trackers.

This SSD offers 5 years or 800TWD endurance, it's very good warranty, it works for me, may not work for someone else though.
