Which SSD is best?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm currently looking at a lot of different SSDs, could you guys point me towards which one to get?

 

Kingston A2000 M.2 (cheapest)

Samsung 860 Evo M.2 (middle ground)

Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 NVMe (most expensive)

I'm currently running a 500 GB 850 Evo 2.5 inch SATA. However, this is not enough anymore and I want extra storage hence the addition of a M.2. I can't really be bothered with cables so M.2 is easiest.

Samsung Evo Plus is obviously the best one, but also the most expensive. Are the other 2 drives reliable and how do they match up to the 970 Evo Plus?

Well let's consider this option then:

I think that the Sabrent Rocket is good enough but pick the TLC Model so this one. It's $120 and on SSD Tier List it's equal to the 970 Evo Plus.

Samsung is extremely reliable regardless of the type of drive.  Up until a recent test they are the only drives i've used and i still have a daily used OS running on a nearly 8 year old pair of Samsung 830's that STILL get over 1GB read and near 1gb write speeds (in  RAID 0 of course but my point was they still run like day 1 on a reliability factor not the speed though that hasn't decreased either....)

 

8 years used daily for gaming/video editing, is that reliable enough for you? Samsung is known as one of the BEST memory manufacturers in the world, period.  so if you fear reliability go with the best regardless of the series of drive, they will all be made quality.

That tier list of SSD's is just a guideline at most, little vague in what makes some better then others? There are no facts to back it up (speeds, reliability or anything.)

 

On the opposite end of what Xently said, after issues with Samsung drives and their warranty issues as well (google it) I won't use their stuff at all.

 

I've been happy with my various Intel and Cruical SSD's and not had any issues with them at all (had/have about a dozen of each now in different builds.) The original Crucial (M4s I got in 2012) and Intel SSD's (about 4-5yrs) I bought many years ago are still running strong (the M4's are still used daily in my now backup ex gaming machine downstairs.)

 

So its a matter of what works for you and most drives are good or better now a days. Get whats on sale and you like (I'd stick with the bigger brand names still mind you)...
