So, if RGB illuminates inside a laptop but no one is around to see it does it make light?

Other than rgb, is this significantly different than the other recent deal from Newegg?

XPG SX8200 Pro PCIe NVMe Gen3 x4 M.2 2280 512GB SSD (ASX8200PNP-512GT-C)

Looks like the 4k random read/write is the only difference.

SX8200 [xpg.com]

Might have to pull the trigger on one, getting my fifth grader parts for his first PC build for Christmas and I think he'll care more about the RGB than the performance.

Thanks for the input. Yes my girls love the RGB too!

You have to look at the spec sheets and compare capacity to capacity, rather than the "specs" blurb.

XPG -512GB 3500 1900 3500 2400 2950 1600 300K 240K 320TB
8200 - 512GB 3350 2350 3500 2300 3000 2100 390K 380K 320TB

Looks like the 8200 is significantly faster in 4k random read/writes and seq writes, and marginally faster in most other aspects.

But frankly, I don't know how that translates to real world performance. I do know I personally like the RGB thing. *shrug*

Ya, I don't see real world performance being an issue. I mean this thing is a hell of a lot faster than a mechanical drive and SATA SSDs.

I have the sx8200 512 nvme and recently started seeing some awful performance. I've had it for less than a year and it was great and ran as advertised out of the box but is on SATA levels now. I contacted their support and warranty seems ok but what a pain to have to send in my boot drive and wait for them to receive it, then send another one back out to me. This will most likely be my first and last ADATA purchase.

You know that is literally how an RMA works, right? Advanced RMAs are few and far-between, especially for a $65 part.

Doesn't sound likely to be a hardware problem anyway so you are likely wasting everyone's time by RMA'ing.

If you're like me and already have a decent NVME drive in your build but are jealous that it doesn't have RGB this may be an option for under $20;

https://www.amazon.com/EZDIY-FAB-...4N7YQJFCQP

12v/4pin ($15) and 5v/3pin w/o fan ($16) options available as well
