You can tighten the timings on these much lower at low speeds, like 3600mhz cl14 :)

turn on Gear down mode if on AMD system or use 2T command rate on Intel, then you can run it faster

Except NVMe slots are rare on motherboards, unlike SATA ports. I personally would go for the bigger size, so that when you add that next...

Worst case scenario, some drives drop down 100mb/sec when the dram runs out...

I'd rather put my trust in a Western Digital drive to stay working for more than 8 years than PNY :)

Only when benching, and the Sn550 is actually faster than the Sn750 in a few tests! In real world use, no noticeable difference. Compared...

it doesn't need it, as it uses a SRAM chip It will never drop under 800mb/sec sequential read/write regardless of how full the drive is...

got an email from Amazon that it was available yesterday, ordered the last one, and shipped today!

unless you need 4TB, this SSD is way faster both read and write, and can do both at the same time without slowing down. 500+ mb/sec read...

Samsung 860 EVO 2TB 2.5" Internal SSD $280.01  + Delivery ($0 with prime) @ Amazon US via AU

SN-550 is very good for the price, even when the cache runs it it's still quick. I have one in a PCIE adaptor and it runs way cooler than...

The 4tb SE version I tried from Officeworks last week was really quiet, and USB3 powered. But only 120 MB/sec

25/12/2020 - 12:53
This drive is really noisey, so I would avoid, the 12-14Tb are way quieter Returned mine for the 14tb UK deal
