This is comparable to the sx8200 Pro, except power efficiency not as good as the sx8200, in the review below. They use the same Silicon Motion memory controller and so if you dig into previous sx8200 threads here you'll see the details of performance, also in comparison to the sn750.

Review is here: https://www.anandtech.com/show/13...p-ex950/10

Great price.
Controller: the WD SN750 uses a tri-core design (read, write, host) which is more powerful than the EX950's dual-core SM2262EN. DRAM: both have the normal amount (1GB:1TB), EX950 may use DDR3 vs. SN750's DDR4 (minor power difference) but not LPDDR4 as on Samsung's 970 EVO Plus. Flash: equivalent generation, 64L 3D TLC, but the EX950 is using Intel/Micron (B16A or B17A) while WD has a custom version of Toshiba BiCS; this has ramifications for direct-to-TLC performance at 1TB. SLC design: static on SN750, large and dynamic on the EX950 - the former is more consistent, the latter more flexible. For steady state, full-drive, or outside SLC (TLC) performance, the SN750's design is flat-out superior and more efficient with heavier workloads. The EX950 will load games/apps a bit faster and is generally optimized more for daily/consumer usage.
because SN750 is single sided and fit into a lot of ultra portables.
other single sided SSD are Samsung ones.

Not sure why this isn't frontpage. It's in the same league as the sn750 which sells out at a similar price.

Nice ssd, but I would still recommend SN750 over this for most people.

Is there any major advantage/drawback to this vs. the SN750?

I saw both for pretty similar prices but bought this one instead so just curious if I made the wrong decision. I use my PC for lots of gaming/school work.

Even the 2TB version, from the same link (I bought it last time), is a phenomenal deal without even being on sale.

I got the 2TB for $235 a couple of months ago and it's been solid. Should've upgraded my storage ages ago!

I haven't tested it against my new Alienware laptop's 1TB M.2 SSD but I already notice that it opens/loads games quicker.

I'm sure you'll still be happy with what you got. I was looking at SN750's but the 2TB was out of stock and the HP was on sale so I grabbed that.

I'd say if you got a better price for the HP then you're fine even if the SN750's are more popular and a lil bit better. I would've maybe gotten the SN750 if it was available at the time but the deals on the HP are hard to pass up. Good bang for buck IMO

Did they ever release the firmware that gave the performance boost.

How does this compare to the Samsung 960 PRO Series - 1TB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD

I have one of those already but could use some more space and my MB has a 2nd slot for this.

BAH I would have preferred this over the WD Black 750 I just ordered. Write endurance on this is twice that of the WD.
