Thanks! I was thinking about picking up an extra SSD drive for when the new Mac OS comes out as I hate upgrading on my main drive, just in case. And sense Apple just announced their next OS, good timing.

Would the 970 evo be worth $50 upgrading over this or no?

How do you upgrade system without actually upgrade? Like second system?

970 EVO is NVMe M.2 PCIe drive, you are comparing apples to bananas. What do you do with you SSD, like games, storing files, I might be able to help you.

I wouldn't spend another $50 on 970 EVO, rather spend another $80 to get 1TB version of 860 EVO, soon you gonna run out of space with all these games weighting over 50GB or more, but it's your money.
On paper 970 EVO is 3 times faster, but those are benchmark tests on sequential read and writes. I am sure there will be others, who won't agree with my point.
BTW Recently returned 970 EVO 500GB and purchased 860 EVO 1TB instead, ran out of storage too quick hehe

So does that mean only like transferring files will be fast but real world usage you wouldn't see a difference?

There is so much more than transferring files.
What is your goal in regards to the upgrade? Your games are loading slow or your system boots very slow?

I used my 970 EVO in a server environment, specifically, in a torrent seedbox with bunch of hashing/reading and random access and writes and did help me a lot, not gonna lie, I just ran out of space too quick. But your case is different, you are basically storing static files, using as a boot drive and games. Would not upgrade it if I were you, as I said, spend your money on a larger 860 instead.

No . it's not worth it . For day to day day use both are almost identical , u are never going to notice a difference . Buy a 1TB SSD instead of investing in a Nvme . I've tried Nvme SSD and went back to sata SSD .

Haha, me too. Tried 970 EVO 500GB and went with Samsung 860 EVO 1TB instead, ran out of space too quick.
NVMe was only good in benchmark tests, you know, for bragging lol

Micron 2 TB SSD for 250$ is a better deal than Samsung Evos .. For day to day ur never gonna see a difference between them . They are almost identical .Endurance rating on samsung is high but it dose not matter for me . As I don't write to it that often . Samsung 1TB has 600 TBW . While Micron 2 TB has only 150 TBW . By the time I wrote 150000 GB to a HDD .I would have switched to a different PC or some new technology .

How do I find if this SSD is compatible with my Dell Inspiron 15z 5523 laptop? I bought this laptop in 2013 and it has HDD drive. I want to upgrade my hard disk from HDD to SSD. Are there any link to check the compatibility?
