Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD

Adata XPG SX8200 Pro

Samsung 970 PRO

Which one should I get, and are there better budget ssd's I'm missing on ?

thanks in advance

What are the prices?

 

I don't know much about WD SSDs, but I assume it's fairly decent?

 

I have a SX8200 Pro, and it's great. Solid speeds, and zero issues.

 

Samsung is also one of the best names in SSDs, but you tend to pay a premium for the name.

ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro is 64 euro

Western Digital Black PCIe is 74 euro

 

Western Digital Black NVMe is 97 euro

 

Btw What's the difference between 

Western Digital Black PCIe and the NVMe one ? is it worth the extra 20 euro?

 

and overall, since the samsung is much more expensive, do I get the ADATA or the WD ?

Idk about the adata one. I do have a 2.5 sata ssd from them that is good

 

wd black is their gaming line (whatever that means in terms of ssds). I have one of those in my laptop. It’s great but get the version with the heat sink if your motherboard doesn’t have one built in.

 

samsung is know to make great, reliable drives but are more expensive


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Quote or tag me so I can see your response

As far as my understanding goes, all of these will perform extremely similar to 1 another. How ever you might want to take a step back and look at sata m.2 drives. In many scenarios they could have less lag or latency.


At me or quote me, I want to hear your opinion.

What are those senarios where they could have less lag/latency?

Well... A PCIe uses a PCIe slot, and M.2 uses the M.2 slot.. Get the M.2 NVME.

 

I think the ADATA is a no brainer. It's much cheaper, and the same performance.

Why isn't the 970 Evo an option? Should be decent, still Samsung, and much cheaper than the Pro.

Honestly, though, I'd get a larger one. What are you worried about loading so quickly on a small SSD?

The NVME one is significantly faster on benchmarks.

Highly unlikely.

Haha, yes, yes you are. WD has never made a drive in that form factor.

IIRC the Intel drives were out before m.2 slots were as common as they are now.

I just like having a very satisfyingly snappy performance, I don't care about loading speed.

I'd be shocked if you noticed the difference between any of these drives, let alone a SATA vs NVME drive.

Especially at lower capacities. Lower capacities mean lower performance.

Within reason. Depends on what's available. If an NVME drive is only a few dollars more, sure that's a good choice.

250GB though? Don't really worry about it.

But the price starts with the kingston A400 at 30 euro up to 61 euro with the Adata XPG SX8200 Pro and then higher 

so there's a difference of double the price there
