I believe so. I use it in a desktop and it's about an inch thick with the heatsink. Don't really see that fitting in any laptop, you'd want to use a sticker thermal pad, which is included
Thanks for the info!

Bought 4 of these the last time they were at a similar price and ended up returning all 4. The read/write performance is all over the place and they're terrible in a 4 drive RAID0.
I hope you take regular backups.

Quote from str8slick :
This should work in a ps5. But who is willing to try it out.
No it won't work in a PS5 since they have not activated the expansion slot yet and we have no ETA on that. Zero reason to buy one until they do and we know which ones will work.

Great deal right now for a good PCIe 4.0 drive - this has the older slower (5000mbs) controller - its the best bang for your $ right now in PCIe 4.0 drives and I'd get this if I hadn't just bought the WD Black 7000mbs PCIe 4.0 drive last week.

Swapped them out for the Gigabyte Aorus PCIe Gen4 which are much more consistent and run very well in RAID 0 on the PCIe Gen4 Asus Hyper M.2 card.
What bandwidth are you getting on that 4 disk raid 0?

Need advice. Wanting to upgrade my ssd in my dell G5 5590 laptop to a 2TB ssd. Been reading conflicting stuff.

1. Does this ssd require a heatsink?
2. Is this overkill for my laptop?

From what I've read it won't matter if it's compatible yet since the port isn't turned on in firmware, sony has left it that way for now until they decide which models to allow.

I am eagerly waiting for the port to become available in mine hehe.
I haven't followed the modding community for PS5 so I may be wrong, but I'd be shocked if Sony isn't controlling this by whitelisting in the firmware. I also feel they have to take action soon as this issue is only getting worse over time.

Out of curiosity, what type of use case are you working on that needs that kind of IO and still warrants this risk of RAID 0? Some sort of cache in front of a larger storage?

Yep I agree, I figured it would be sooner than this. Whitelisting would be annoying, hopefully they just require 4.0 nvme

The TBW rating on these is excellent, I have lag issues with WD purple drives on blue iris, I added an M.2 drive for new recordings and have noted significant improvement, at ~10TB/month the 1800TBW of the 1TB will actually last a good while as compared to most of the cheaper drives that are rated for <600TBW. I know blueiris can and does run off standard HDDs, but with enough 4K streams it definitely starts to lag on playback, this will work well for my use case

Yeah, I hope so too although I somewhat get where they're coming from as not all 4.0 drives meet their requirements. My bigger concern is that they limit it to just one particular brand or model.

Yep that will be lame.... But I fear they may do something like that too. Given how long it's taken for them to decide doesn't bode will imo

You're running an Intel CPU. It doesn't support PCI-E 4.0. While this drive would technically work because it is backwards compatible it would be a waste of money.

Thanks for confirming my suspicion!
