SATA SSDs are still nice for running Windows and much faster than a mechanical HDD. Not everyone needs nvme speed on their OS.

Well said above, especially when many motherboards of people's personal computer don't have a nvme connector.

This is a fine OS drive. As far as SATA drives go they don't get much better, and they don't really get noticeably faster. Samsung drives are technically faster, but you'll never notice in a personal PC. These were released for Christmas 2017 and were Toms Hardware pick for best SATA until Crucial introduced their MX500s a couple months later.

I figured I'll add this to over here since the topic has already come up and I'm not going to write it all up again from the adata thread while on mobile.

For everyday general use...people don't even utilize the speed that nvme provides. If it's a workstation where you're pulling video from to edit and scrub through, that person will probably get the proper use out of it.

Starting windows, you might gain a second or 2 (aw darn, you have to wait 11 seconds instead of 10), or you might not even get that as it takes an extra second to intialize the nvme protocol process. If you're playing games, go ahead and check out this comparison [youtube.com] of a 960 evo m.2 nvme vs a sata crucial mx300.

NVME is *useless* to a normal every day web browsing, game playing student/parent/person who doesn't use the computer as their main source of income.
Anyway, I feel like I remember just a few months ago people saying they were waiting for the $200 mark. Ask and you shall receive I guess.

Maybe because they don't have made in China label.. most people who upgraded in the race for 1tb for close to $100 already bought. Now it's about convincing the consumer with 10year old desktops it's time to build anew... (with nvme) and getting build parts lower..

You are a moron. They are basically the same real world performance , in fact su800 has on average 23% faster writes - 471mb/sec vs 450 for the wd blue.
Thanks for playing
Pretty sure that's not how math works.
But yes you're right. I was mistaken as they both max out the sata 3 port.

Still holding on to refurbished OCZ Agility 3 ssd's bought in 2013. Run RAID 0 and haven't had any problem. Almost bought a larger ssd, but my curiosity drives me to find out how long they will last.

honestly, that seems too much money. Seems every 12 months the prices drop, last year at this time you would have paid the same price for a 1TB. A 1 TB will probably be my maximum size anyhow, most large files go to an external, leaving the operating system free of large trash. Thats the future of mac's any ways.

Just saying
