Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a Samsung 860 Evo 250gb what m.2 should I get? I want the price to be under $90 but I can go to $130 if needed. I want a 500gb

You can get a 1TB drive for around 130, but the MX500 and WD Blue are good cheaper 500gb options sub 90$ CAD

970 EVO 500GB or ADATA XPG SX8200 PRO 500GB should be about 130$ and the best 500GB drive you can get for under 130$ (otherwise i'd probably recommend the 900p 280gb at 259$).

129 CAD for a drive equivalent to the 970 EVO

FYI you wont see any difference between a SATA drive and a M.2 NVMe drive.

For file transfers and installing programs you will, for everything else you won't

Is this website legit it was under googles websites I can purchase from? https://mavelsale.com/product/samsung-970-evo-500gb-nvme-pcie-m-2-2280-ssd-mz-v7e500bw/

That looks sketchy as fuck and on amazon it's double the price.

(sidenote, it's much slower than the advertised speeds because they made it slower with lower capacities)

Direct connect with cooling on my mb vs cable and less room in my pc for other cables and I’ll get a 179% performance boost (speed loading time not FPS)
