Just today I did some benchmarks with the 2TB version of this drive compared against a Corsair MP600 PCIe 4.0 drive. It's an unfair comparison and this drive held its own on all but large file transfers.

Honestly, I'd say that if your usage was fairly "normal" and you're considering this drive, get it! If you need to transfer large movies from time to time, that's fine, get it! If you need to transfer many large movies once or twice, get it. If you're constantly re-encoding movies and saving the re-encoded movies to disk and want it to perform super fast, or constantly generating very large backup files, or doing some heavy 4k video editing, pass on this drive.

I found this review on Amazon helpful. If you have more sources where people actually test how much write endurance they need, please share. More helpful than some of the comments here calling this drive worthless.

From Tanner via Amazon
"The main concern I had with this drive was that it was using QLC flash, which is pretty poor when it comes to write endurance. 200TB TBW for a 1TB drive is really low, but then I had to consider if I would ever reach that limit. I've been using a Crucial MX300 for the past two years with a very similar endurance rating (220TB) and I've only used 2% of that in those two years. Unless you have a really write intensive work load (like writing 100+GB every day for five years), then I highly doubt you'll ever come close to hitting that limit."

it does not need to connect to PSU. at first start, you probably won't see the drive immediately because you need to go admirative tools to format the drive and assign a letter.

New MB usually have NVMe slots for it. beware usually NVMe slot on MB are share channel with some SATA slots. read your manual so you don't overlap the drives.

if you are using old MB, you won't able to connect it to PCI right the way. you will need a PCI NVMe adapter to be used on PCI slot. I am not sure your 2nd PCI slot means normal PCI slot or PCI 16x slot same as GPU use

this is an example of normal PCI adapter, pretty much you pop it on there and screw on adapter. then pop in the adapter to your MB, then it will just run.

Perfectly fine for gaming.

If you did large file editing you may want to consider a higher quality driver.

Haven't built a PC in several years and forgot a lot as well as haven't caught up on the newest stuff. Is this like an SSD I can pop into the 2nd PCI slot on my motherboard beneath my graphics card? No need to connect to PSU? Does windows just assign it a drive letter when the OS boots?

Newer motherboards have spots designated for nvme drives. You just drop em in and out the screw in to hold them in place

Thanks! Every time I want to get something new seems like I need to upgrade something. In this case it's my z87 pro mobo...

My QNAP TS-453Be NAS has the ability for an expansion card to add this type of memory. Does anyone know how that would be useful?
