    I'd avoid this model. It's being shipped with cheap QLC chips, which slow down to a 70MB/s crawl for large writes. It took 5 hours for windows to fully write to this drive... ridiculous. Slower than a mechanical drive. There are much faster, and more reliable, drives around for a similar price or less, and with TLC.

    Whilst I agree QLC has it's limitations, the pseudo SLC cache on a 2TB drive is going to be pretty substantial. You've got 25% the drive capacity when empty before you run into issues.

    Yeah I'm not sure why TLC is in the title. It doesn't sound like it's worth it.

    Good for 4k video editing?
    Probably not, transferring large files too it will be pretty slow once the cache is used up.
    4K is quite large.

    I edit from an MX500 and the DRAM cache is priceless for transfering footage too it. (edited)

    thanks, 2tb with a gen4 bonus for 100 is a buy for me !
    It's dubiously Gen 4 if it only has Gen 3 speeds. Still a steal though.

    Probably what this is worth tbh (edited)

    Gen 4 on the label Gen 3 speed. Nothing special.

    Top quality and faster Gen 3 NVME drives can be had cheaper.

    All the heat added are clearly from people don’t know or care about performance of a NVME drive. (edited)
    Example of a better gen 3 for cheaper?

    Quite disappointing speeds for a Gen 4.

    I bought two the other day from a different store and both were TLC. It's certainly a coin flip but considering my use case, the capacity and cost, I'm happy.

    I used the 1tb version in my PS5. Appears to work fine
    Now, perhaps but way below the requirements listed by Sony for Read and Write speeds. Only a matter of time till your investment is a dud (edited)

    Techpowerup did some extensive testing of the NV2 here in which they concluded it is actually a pretty decent drive for the money. As always with this site there will be people that pop in with "but if you pay 50% more you can get a better drive that will transfer 600GB faster", but if you want a value drive, this is definitely worth a look, especially when you delve into the most common use cases.

    Have a look at the TPU tests that most closely represent your usage and see if it will work for you. My main use is Photoshop/Lightroom and here the NV2 is 3% slower than the absolute fastest drive they've tested. Good luck noticing that! If you're a gamer then this drive is about 0.3 seconds slower (about 1.5%) than their fastest drives. Specs aren't everything...
    You are focusing on one key thing, i.e. speed really doesn't matter, but missing the other. The type of NAND makes a massive difference for a lot of use cases, i.e. anything where it's storage you need to be using TLC at a minimum. The difference in reliability between TLC and QLC drives seems to be anecdotally substantial, yet not really proven as the times required to trigger failure are so long.

    Really wish QLC didn't exist now, as TLC prices have dropped so much the cost benefit is not significant enough. The price drop is really only in the past few months as well, so likely to force QLC prices even lower.

    Can anyone recommend this drive it seems alright for the price or would a Crucial or something be better?

    Would this be quicker than the 1TB hard drive that's in the PS5 already?
    I doubt it, this is on the cheap end of NVMEs
