Depends on the use case. For everyday uses, you're not going to notice a difference or wear it out faster in any measurable way. If you're trying to get a good bang for buck drive to really speed up your system, this is a good way to go. I never recommend people to spend more than they have to if they're not going to actually gain an appreciable performance boost or just because something else is better on paper.

This should be a reputable, reliable drive. You might find something cheaper from other brands (and vice versa), but I don't think you can go wrong with this unless you specifically need a certain level of sequential read/writes, iops, tbw, etc. Don't just go by what's on paper, go by what you need/don't need, and one that isn't known to cause problems.
Just a warning to anyone buying this, When they get full the write speed slows down to below HDD speeds. You are not supposed to run these drives to anywhere near 90% of capacity and above.

This is a really really old drive, there are way better newer and faster models out there (i'm only talking of pci-e gen3) with much better speeds and better durability than this for $5 to $10 more on an everyday price. Sale prices on those will be cheaper/better. Save yourself the trouble.
Still waiting to replace my 1TB NVMe SSD I bought three years ago for $69. Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron stop colluding to milk the consumer at 1-2TB kkthx. We are ready to be cheated at 8-32TB.

Everyone has been brainwashed to eat these high price because xyz reasons. It's easier and cheaper to print ssd NAND memory than make a hard drive yet you don't see those staying stationary at 1-2TB for the past 3 years.


For friends sake people I bought this for $69 in 2019.

I'm new to NVMe, how is this compared to WD Black?
I'm looking for windows 11 install and data. Any recommendations - Is is better to partition a 1TB (50/50) for that or get 2 500gb ssd's?

This is a QLC drive that's not really comparable to the WD. There are decent TLC drives for $10-20 more than this; imo not worth the savings.

Downside of partitioning is if the drive craps, you lose both partitions. Upside is you only take up one m.2 slot, leaving the other free for future upgrades.

Either way isn't a big deal, I'd say go with whatever makes sense to you.

While I wouldn't go as far to say "save yourself the trouble", you're not wrong:

(I recommend providing examples for your claims)

I guess one upside of buying from BH Photo Video is that if you bought their gift cards from the PayPal deal a while back, this is something you could use it on.

for internal expansion (install/play games from), no. for usb/external expansion (to either play ps4 games or store ps5 games), yes.

for internal expansion, you need a pcie gen 4 nvme ssd. recommended sequential read speed of >5,500 mb/s (although slower gen 4 drives have been known to work currently).

I agree with buying what you need but paying $10 extra to go with a superior solution might be worth it. Sure, you may not need it now or everday.

Should you pay $50-$100 for the fastest performing Pro drive for everyday usage ? No

Should you pad $10 extra for a non QLC drive - Yes IMHO
