Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, I need a little help..

I'm looking to buy a M.2 nvme, but I don't know what to pick.
I have 3 models I'm looking at but I need the last help :)

1. A-Data XPG SX8200 500GB (cheap and great preformence)
2. Samsung 970 EVO Plus 256GB (the more expencive that's why I have the 256GB but it's a samsung and that are always good)
3. Samsung 970 EVO SSD 500GB (the none PLUS so is it cheaper but that shown on the preformence)

What would you guys pick?
Or do you have other options :)

Thanks before hand

I can recommend the SX8200 but get the Pro version, it's not any more expensive than the regular one and it's better than 970 EVO.

Do you really need NVME ?

If not you can get a good SSD with more capacity and it's cheaper too :))

Well 1 is somewhat difficult to cut in the right place to put a bit of it in different computers, but yeah... ;)

 

1x 2TB in one PC, 2x 1TB ones in RAID0 in another.

The price diffrence is so small now that I would rather have the faster loading time, and pay that 5-10% more :)

Take everything LTT makes and says with a grain of salt. Especially anything Linus says.

NVMe don't load faster than SATA SSD.

 

At this point it's a purely size for $ game.
