Just what I was waiting for Amazon price match
Sub £100 never felt so good

Cracking deal, price to performance is top notch.
This or the sabrent rocket 1TB? It’s £10 more expensive.
Thanks just what I’ve been waiting for 🔥 🔥 🔥

Little in it. At the same price I'd take this.

Sabrent is a Phison E12 (although I've seen rumours they've changed to a cheaper Phison controller recently) and this uses Silicon Motion SM2262

Thanks very much. Building my first pc. Will do with this!
Ordered this last night @£114.99 but just spoke to live chat and they refunded the difference
Would this be suitable to pair with a Ryzen 3600 and a 5700xt?

Go to pcpartpicker and click on build and see if they are compatible. I’m to new to this and use the site on my first build.

MSI B450 Tomahawk Max is a solid budget buy and about £80-90.

This SSD will work with all the motherboards a 3600 will go in.

Will this run okay if my motherboard only supports gen3? Will be upgrading to a supported x570 next year, but for now, will it be okay? - just run at gen3 speeds etc.

Haha was only kidding anyway, only saw this a few mins ago and didn't check the timing.

I must check facts before attempting and failin at a humourous comment!

They are faster but depends on what you are doing as to if you'll notice. For example in game load time it's often marginal between them. e.g. see the differences in this vid - youtube.com/wat…9l4 HDD to SATA SSD is a big difference, SATA SSD to NVME SSD often not a lot.

But for other workloads which perhaps need a lot of random reads and writes then NVME gives a difference.

The M.2 form factor is the main bonus, as it saves having another power & data cable to the drive. There are SATA M.2 drives but these seem quite few & far between now, or price difference to NVME is marginal

It's a Gen 3 PCIe NVMe. So you'll be fine.

Also Gen 4 PCIe motherboards (x570) are backward compatible with Gen 3 hardware like this, so this will work in a newer board too (though restricted to these same speeds. Won't work any faster)
So, how do ADATA stack up with performance against the likes of Samsung, Corsair or Crucial? Are they reliable?
slipd: just below Samsung EVO, very reliable. Great deal, buy it.

Thanks! And the 970 Evo IS another 50 notes...

Struggling to find real benchmarks for this sabrent which is the 3.0.

Dont be fooled by userbenchmark site which only lists the 4.0. theyre not the same.

Id stick with adata over sabrent, and if the evo plus 1tb was within 30 quid id probably buy that.

With this adata you get near enough evo pro performance for less than Evo money.

I would wait and get the sabrent 4.0 once you get the x570.

640 tbw for this drive versus 600 tbw for the samsung evo pro. So this is more reliable.

These ssds will last years.
Is there much difference between these and an SSD?
caparn121/11/2019 17:02

Is there much difference between these and an SSD?


I assume youre referring to the m.2 format. This IS and SSD. It just connects into a dedicated m.2 slot on the motherboard rather than in a bay connected by sata.
caparn121/11/2019 17:02

Is there much difference between these and an SSD?


M.2 usually runs via pcie and is much much faster. So like 500mb/s sata versus like 2500 mb/s.

Check if you have an m.2 on your motherboard first
this looks good... will my load times for large games be any quicker than on a sata ssd? or am i just paying for form factor? also my slot is behind my graphics card but my case is generally well cooled. would it be a problem?

Can this be put in an external enclosure?
sure why not
Amazon is disaster, ordered 20.11, still haven't got it.
And on top of that it's the 2nd order cancelled and refnunded.
AbuYazeedUK24/11/2019 23:57

Yes, but you wont be getting use of the speeds so kind of a waste of money to do that. You'll be restricted to usb 3.1 if you have that, or lower.
Would this fit in a PS4?

I think only 2.5'' SSDs are compatible.

Is this a new form factor? Not been building PCs for a while. Used to 3.5 and 2.5.

It's not new but certainly a different form factor like this
The big one is 2.5'' and the middle one is M2
