Quote from fixxall :
I purchased the 970 EVO Plus from Amazon last week for $300. I have until January 31st to return it.

It's now on sale for $250 so I figured Amazon would do a price adjustment since I'm still well within the return window. Nope. The assholes would prefer that I ship it back to them (on their dime), get a refund, and then repurchase it at the lower price.

Jokes on them, I just requested the return and ordered it elsewhere.
They don't have the best minds at their CS. The quality of the CS is going down each year because they favoring outsourcing it to some "English-speaking" countriesies where no one gives a fark.

So now that I purchased both the 1TB & 2TB I originally planned to use the 1TB for the C-Drive (boot) and the 2TB for D-Drive (data). But after coming across a performance comparison chart on Samsung's site for the 250GB - 500GB - 1TB drives there's no mention or comparison between the 1TB & 2TB versions.

Question: Is the 2TB faster and a better choice for my C-Drive or was my original plan of using the 1TB for the boot drive the better option?

Not having much luck with this drive. Seems buggy. Folders and browser tabs randomly just freeze and require force closing with task manager. Firmware's up to date and even disabled AHCI mode in BIOS.

Back to Amazon it goes.

The 2TB is going to be slightly faster than the 1TB due to the higher chip density /amount of flash the drive can write to. It's always been the case with SSD drives. With that said, the increase in speed of these NVME drives (especially 512gb and up) as you go up in capacities (or even if you compare it to other manufacturer benchmarks) are very unlikely to be felt by most users and in most work scenarios. If it was me, I'd make the 2TB drive the main drive simply because I don't have to worry about transferring files to the D drive then, plus, being a larger chip, the flash should be able to tolerate more read/writes than 1TB since you likely won't be filling the 2TB drive as quickly as the 1TB.

That's good to know... appreciate that!

Somewhere long ago I was taught to keep the boot driver small and separate from the data drive. Possibly due to the high failure rate of HDDs and perhaps for security reasons. But I guess backups should mitigate any data loss...

Depends on the particular drive. The 2TB Sabrent Rocket is actually slower than the 1TB (which is the fastest). But yeah, generally true and totally right here!
