Amazon has the ADATA XPG SX8100 1TB 3D NAND NVMe Gen3x4 PCIe M.2 2280 Solid State Drive [amazon.com] for $119.99 - $10 coupon for Prime members = $109.99 + Free Prime Shipping.

In order to get $10 off, you need to 'clip' the $10 coupon under the 119.99 price on the product page, and you will see the discount in your cart.

You probably will not see the coupon if you are not a Prime member. Please comment if you are a prime member, not used this coupon before, and yet still don't see it. Hopefully it works for most or all Prime members.

This is mid-level/moderate M.2 SSD, similar to the SX8800, arguably better than the WD SN550 and not quite as good as the SX8200 and SN750.

Features:
  • Form Factor/interface: M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe 3x4
  • 3D NAND and read/write up to 3500/3000MB/s
  • 5-Year Limited manufacturer Warranty
  • Note: PCIe interface is not compatible with SATA III interface. Please check your user's manual for proper installation instruction making sure your motherboard's M. 2 slot supports PCIe NVMe or M Key with NVMe
Model # ASX8100NP-1TT-C

In looking at the differences, I don't think I'm the user that will really care about the subtle differences between this and something like the SN750 from a couple days ago so I went for it.

Should be a good addition to throw games onto - at the moment, my main NVME is full and I have been transferring games to my 2tb HDD without any real issue tbh. Have another NVME slot free so might as well get this.

Thanks for the post!

The question is, what will preform faster once it is 50%-80% full, in gaming, along with having the OP system on it?

There likely will not be any noticeable differences in SSD when you are gaming other than load times, of course, which will be slightly faster with Nvme compared to SATA.

I don't know much about this particular drive, but I see a pattern in the reviews that are more than just "WHy dIDn'T iT Came wIF DuH ScReW?"

Same pattern of dropped connections and BSOD (when used as a boot drive) in reviews over on Newegg
https://www.newegg.com/xpg-sx8100...0017-001A1
Adata doesn't seem to be addressing the issue in either place, not too confident in getting this one.

Regarding the 8200 pro (from an old 8200 pro thread)
"Quote :
It seems that the Adata XPG SX8200 Pro features a two-tiered write cache. During the first minute of the test, the drive wrote over 165GB of data at an average rate of 2.85GB/s. Then performance degraded to an average of 1.1GB/s over the next 7-8 minutes while the drive wrote an additional 500GB of data. After that, it degraded once more to an average of 615MB/s. So, for those of you who write lots of large files, the SX8200 Pro should be able to handle the workload without much issue."

I wonder if this 8100 had the same kind of sustained write performance.

I have this drive, performance is okay when it works, transferred large amount of data sustaining 1.2Gb/sec (this is real world, not your on paper spec). Likely limited by the source drive not this drive. My concern with it is that it runs super hot and have failed in the past likely due to overheating. I'm in the process of shopping a heatspreader for it. Also the Adata SSD utility does not always detect it. Strangest is that it's not even listed under supported drive on Adada website.

This brand is not good. I have it in my NUC and when boot up it show no bootable drive. I have to keep power off and on like 10 time before it work again.

this is a POS. It dumps randomly so NOW i have to have the tower case lid off and a fan blowing directly on it to keep it as cool as possible and it STILL crashes about once a week. That is why i still have a deal search to get a new 1tb m.2 drive to either make this a backup or i don't know. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.

i don't think last year prices is going to be a good measure.

With trends we have seen with covid-19, prices will probably hike up more.

Bought last year for $80 and mine is still running great, but these comments are concerning. Better make sure I back up regularly...
