Which of the two cards would bes considered the better choice?

SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS M.2 2280 1TB PCIe Gen 3.0

https://www.newegg.com/samsung-97...6820147743

Or this one?

Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 1TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4

https://www.newegg.com/western-di...6820250110


The WD is the same drive size as the 970 Evo Plus and so much lower in pricing. Although I'm more interested in the better of the two for a gen 3 card... I have always used samsung ssd drives and been pleased.

Just not sure if the higher price is justifiable. Any actual difference or just the name...?
Samsung not worth that price. WD is a lot cheaper and just as good SN750 goes on sale every week it looks like.

Don't mean to make your decision more difficult, but the new WD blue has some solid reviews and goes for around the same price as the SN750, and even outperforms it slightly in some areas. Definitely worth taking a look at that price point.

Base dons pecs, but some say only samsung and intel are reliable. Some moron moderator on tom's hardware kept mocking me for considering using a microsoft brand ssd and that sued the same Phison controller a lot of these others use. So I think he was dumb, but at the same time some people do think only a couple brands are reliable.

ps most samsungs just price dropped a tad again today. now the 1tb plus is $190, 512gb pro $150, 1tb pro $320. Still obviously high cost compared to other brands, though. Very annoying other stores can't often price them below samsung's prices. so they go on sale everywhere at the same time for same prices...

It might be before your time, but back before any kind of fast flash memory was used anywhere, we used to create ultra fast ramdisks that could reach bandwidths SSDs are only barely peaking at currently. The issue with these, of course, is that ramdisks are volatile. Anything stored in them had to be transferred elsewhere and often at ridiculously slow speeds.

If you treat SSDs as volatile (as you should with any storage medium), your concern for reliability over time becomes less of an issue.

As far as read/write speeds go on these drives, most of these peak speeds won't even get utilized in normal operation on a desktop. They make for good benchmarks, but it's like running errands around town in a car that puts down 800hp.

Does Sabrent have any way of identifying their QLC vs MLC/TLC drives?

If you can't find it on the US region page, the international page usually has more info. Also, reviews.

For the Rocket series of drives, the QLC ones are designated with a Q in their name: https://www.sabrent.com/product/S...ate-drive/

WD is a much more reliable brand IMO. 99% of SD'ers won't be able to take advantage of the speed diff bw WD Black and Sabrent Gen4.

tl;dr: Unless if you're transferring/rendering raw 6k/8k footage, WD Black is better
WD SSDs are just SanDisk. Mostly paying for the WD name unless you find a sale. FWIW, SanDisk have had their issues just like any other SSD maker, and WD has CERTAINLY had their issues as a brand as well.

TL;DR: I suggest not being a brand loyalist. They will all screw up and build to cost with as high of a margin they can get away with.

I been a loyal samsung ssd drive user for some time now. I still have my 250GB sata ssd drive and running strong for the past few years now. I think it's been about five years now. Which set me back like about $300 at the time. Heh. Gez.

Both the SN750 and the blue WD are priced nice.


I have had the SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS in my cart for two days now. Heh. Can't seem to make up my mind.

Like I told the person who swore by WD drives, trusting a brand these days isn't a good idea IMHO. Even trusting a model on products that have multiple revisions like drives, monitors, PSUs, Closed Loops coolers, almost anything in tech with multiple sourced parts really.

Samsung doesn't have a terrible track record, but I always suggest looking into the exact model before hitting the "buy" button. They've had issues with certain models of their SSDs in the past as well, last one I think was a controller issue that locked up the drives in the Evo line (IIRC). Does that all Samsung makes is bad SSDs? No. Does that make the Evo series bad? No. It means that particular model is/was bad, and Samsung is company just like any other that will occasionally push out duds. Just research before hitting the "buy" button.

Researching the specific capacity you are looking at with SSDs (and HDDs) matters too, as the physical hardware changes and could create an issue for some capacities within the same model/revision.

The sabrent is substantially similar to the Samsung. Just about all nvme 4 spec mfg (and there aren't many ATM) Go through rigorous mfg process to meet the spec. They also have minimum 2 year warranty..

Thumbs up to this.

Never be a brand snob; it's how monopolies are built and innovation remains stagnant.

Most people who swear by WD or Samsung are doing so out of conjecture. Likely, they've never bought any other brand so they've attained confirmation bias with as little as one experience.

With SSDs, the gap with most of these fab plants is extremely minimal. It takes far less to produce these than it took to produce mechanical drives, so even the smallest companies can have some skin in the game.

We'd be lucky if companies could compete with likes of AMD, Intel, and Nvidia.

I just bought the 1TB the 28th of May, do you think Amazon would do a price adjustment and save me the hassle of purchasing this and then select returning the purchase on the 28th and sending the newly receive product back?

These are the advertised speeds:

Wd 1tb Black 3430MB/s read:3000MB/s write.
Sabrent gen 3 is 3450MB/s read:3000MB/s write.

The Gen 4 Sabrent is 5000MB/s read:and 4400MB/s write, but you need PCIe gen 4 to take advantage of that speed.
These are sequential speeds and not really noticeable in normal use unless you're constantly moving around large files. Even then, these speeds only last until the cache runs out then you're going to be limited to whatever the TLC/QLC flash can write. Higher capacities can write faster and have more buffer but you'll always run out, unlike SLC and some very fast MLC drives that can sustain that speed the whole time.

Honestly unless youre doing very disk intensive work like running multiple VMs and databases or editing very large files, you're not going to notice any difference. Get the drive with the capacity and reliability you need.
