I have the 480 GB. Popped it in my Hero Maximus XI and it worked like a charm. Boot up time is insane, though to be honest I'm moving from a pretty old Crucial M500 SSD.

Got the 480 and (also a 240) am very happy with it. Feels as good as my Samsung 960 evo (which is in an overall faster machine).

I don't know if the heat shields actually do anything, but it makes me feel a little better knowing it is there. Looks nice too of that is your thing (although neither of mine are in cases where they are visible.

I also have the 480GB version, pretty good overall. Talking about the heatsink, if you are planning to put it into a NUC, just don't use the heatsink. The NUC already has a thermal pad for M.2 SSD. And it's impossible to take off the heatsink once you stick it onto the SSD (unless you don't care the possibility of ripping off the chips).
The problem for me is the website itself. My system language is French and this site just keeps directing me to the French site and I'm not able to purchase anything unless I switch the system language to English...

From what I've read, the difference is not noticeable. I also heard that if you're doing lots of big file transfers though it starts to show. Not sure if this applies to moving games from this SSD to another SSD but I'd imagine it would because that involves the write speed.

Think this one actually edges out the 960 EVO but slower than the 970 EVO. I'm on the fence with purchasing this one so I've been reading a bit about it.

I own both this and 970 Evo plus. The boot time is slightly faster with adata. In terms of file transfer, 970 Plus is a little faster.

I would definitely recommend getting adata and saving $$.

Doubt it... Can you setup a PayPal account with that credit card?

Definitely sounds tempting! Looking between this and the 970 Evo Plus. The difference is $90 from comparing the place I'm may buy it from. This is gonna be a long time driver so debating on whether or not that $90 will be worth splurging.

*Edit*
Alright I bought it. Meanwhile I like to have what's "best"(within my price range), I think in this case the "best" isn't that far off from what the Adata XPG SX8200. I hope I made the right decision getting this over the 970 Evo Plus.

Curious where you're getting the negative reviews. Tom's Hardware has it as an Editor's choice, PC Gamer gives it a great review, its 4.5 stars on Amazon and 4 stars on Newegg (mainly because of a bad temp reading).

I too like the post right above me am curious. Can you link me to the negative review? This is to help not just me but you as there are multiple versions of Adata NVME M.2 storage.

I did extensive research to compare between hp920 and xpg8200 and I would like to see where you are reading the negative review from. Cause every credible sources saying this is a good drive
