This NVMe SSD seems really cheap. Is there something wrong with it??

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I found this NVMe SSD on Amazon and it's about half the price of an equivalent size Samsung drive. Is there something wrong with it???

Agree with the recommendation for the Adata SX 8200, this is a very good NVME drive for the price.


Please quote my post, or put @paddy-stone if you want me to respond to you, I may not see your post otherwise.

for moving large files(like 4k/8k video etc) the samsung 970 evo/pro is usually quite useful because they have much higher read/write speeds than other nvme drives, but for gaming and other use then sata ssd is often enough


i like water.

Idk, I've never heard of Sabrent before

 

the wikipedia page for it has like 5 sentences

 

I personally think it could be better to buy from a more well known seller like Samsung or WD
