I would consider this a different type of drive; more consumer-oriented. Check my Reddit guide here [reddit.com].

Depends on how old, but if you mean in comparison to a modern SSD like the 860 EVO, mostly negligible.

I bought 2 of these in the previous sales, upgrading from 960 EVOs. CrystalDiskMark reported much higher speeds (>50% in some areas) in the HP drive, though I haven't noticed any real use differences. It's only been a few weeks and haven't noticed thermal issues, nor pauses which are indicative of them. It's likely the 970 may be faster than EX920, but I wouldn't think the cost outweighs those improvements. So in my two sample tests, 960 EVO < HP EX920, and I'm quite happy with my purchases.

Yes. I went from a 5 year old Intel 530 to the 1TB EX920. Bootup is faster. Everything is snappier, especially when I have 100+ browser tabs open.

Unless something new has come out since just this last Sunday (I looked into it then), no. Unfortunately HP support themselves are acting like it's no big deal and HP website has no real information, drivers or firmware you can download... basically HP knows there is a problem and has no intention of trying to fix it (and they might not even know how since they don't manufacture the controller). I've had the drive installed for a couple weeks and it seems to work just fine, but sadly due to lack of support I don't trust the drive enough swap my 860 evo boot drive to the HP ex920 nvme drive... just intend to use it for large open world/long load time games and 4K videos.

Why would an SSD speed up your browser -- after it's open, that is? I can understand there being some minor improvement to caching and reading from the cache, but it's not clear to me how that should help with browser tabs that are already open.

Also, I open a ton of tabs myself, but if you're opening 100+ at a time, maybe it's time to consider another organization scheme! Big Grin
