    would this be a decent drive to add to my PC for additional storage? only looking to store things like Steam games etc.

      For storage, use a regular HDD. Use this for running your OS.

      With Steam games, the only difference is loading times, and even so, the HDD is only part of the equation.

        With Steam games, the only difference is loading times

        It can be a pretty sizable difference though, if anything if I had to choose I would put the games on the SSD and OS on the HDD - computer only ever hibernates so start up time is a non-issue

            @misu p: Okay, but which part is wrong?

            • @Brouw3r: Maybe he was talking about me.

            • @Brouw3r: You are forgetting not everyone keeps hibernating. It's very rare I do it, and even then I turned it off from time to time to restart it.

          SSD doesn't just boost startup time. Personally I suggest putting everything on SSD except for media files (videos, pictures, etc) and backups.

        • Just no…

  • How do these compare to the 860 EVOs?

      860 EVO is way better. Faster and much more reliable.
