Cheapest I've found this!


The SX8200 Pro M.2 2280 SSD is XPG’s fastest SSD to date and is designed for avid PC enthusiasts, gamers, and overclockers. It features an ultra-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface that offers sustained peak read/write speeds of 3500/3000MB per second, outpacing SATA 6Gb/s by a wide margin. Supporting NVMe 1.3, the SX8200 Pro delivers excellent random read/write performance and multi-tasking capabilities. With SLC caching, a DRAM Cache buffer, E2E Data Protection, and LDPC ECC, it maintains high speeds and data integrity, even during highly intensive applications such as gaming rendering, and overclocking.

In Pursuit of Higher Performance

With intelligent SLC caching and a DRAM cache buffer, the SX8200 Pro can accelerate sequential and 4K random read/write speeds to shorten system response time, making it especially suitable for multimedia editing and gaming.

3D NAND Flash - Higher Capacity, Efficiency, and Reliability

Built with 3D NAND Flash the SX8200 Pro comes in capacities of up to 2TB, offers higher efficiency, and is more reliable than 2D SSDs. Thanks to the support of data protection technologies, it also features a high TBW and excellent durability to meet the demands of various applications.

LDPC ECC Ensures Data Integrity

The SX8200 Pro supports LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check) error correcting code technology to detect and fix a wider range of data errors for more accurate data transfers and a longer SSD lifespan.

E2E Data Protection and RAID Engine

Supporting E2E (End-to-End) Data Protection and RAID Engine, the SX8200 Pro ensures data safety, integrity, and delivers an extended lifespan.

Backed by a 5-Year Warranty

Every component on the SX8200 Pro has passed meticulous screening, testing, and certification. What’s more, it comes backed by a 5-year warranty.

Recently bought the Sabrent Rocket which is about 3500MBps at 1TB for £130, swapped it for the 1TB version of this drive when it dropped to £130 on another deal recently.

They're both rated at about the same speed, and maybe you won't see much real world difference, but here's my tests of the two drives. The Adata XPG SX8200 Pro is definitely the better drive to have of the two. The 512GB Sabrent with an equivalent rated speed is currently £79.99 so definitely go for this deal instead of you're after a 512GB NVMe drive.

Definitely something weird going on knackering the write speeds here, maybe it's because the drive was nearly full and being used as a boot drive, but I'm now in the same situation with the Adata and don't have the same problem.
Built a desktop for my wife with this drive - absolutely fine.
Using the Sabrent in my MacBook Pro with only PCIe 2.0, so max sequential R/W speeds are halved but it is maxing out both using the BlackMagic Disk Speed Test benchmark. Something is definitely wrong with your setup.

Must have been a bad one you got then as this is my Sabrent at about 40% capacity :/
I went from a SATA SSD to a Samsung PM951 I found in my drawer (think it came from a laptop) - it's much faster in benchmarks but negligible difference in the real world, maybe fractionally quicker to respond and game load times aren't noticeably reduced. What are people using these for out of interest?

I would buy an NVMe again if there wasn't such a big price gap and SSDs hadn't all gone up in price.
For those who have installed one of these do they use the std NVME controller under Windows 10...? Driver by MS dated June 2006.

I have aSamsung NVME drive and it seems to perform better using their NVME drivers but will often fail to return from Sleep when using them, causing the PC to reboot or, in the past, BSOD.

Personally I used a NVMe drive to upgrade my MBP Retina, which are only compatible with PCIe SSDs (via an adaptor)

Fortunately I bought it just before prices skyrocketed in lockdown!

kinda agree with his findings.

Mine is just for a boot drive.

Yes I skim-watched it but got the gist. We know (or should know) that going from HDD to SATA SSD is a huge difference but going SATA SSD to NVMe SSD is a relatively minor one so it's harder to notice, that's why I'm not tripping over myself to get a big NVMe primary drive - there are also heat and throttling considerations as well as having to do a clean install again. Then again, they are saying that with the games consoles going to NVMe SSDs next gen that things will start being optimised for NVMe as that will be the mainstream - I guess that makes sense.

I have recently used my Samsung NVME as my primary boot drive. I used Macrium Reflect, free copy, to clone the SSD Windows 10 install to the NVME and then shutdown the PC. I unplugged the SSD and it then booted fine from the NVME as normal.
No clean install.

I always go clean if I can. Also the PM951 I had is smaller than the disk that would be cloned.

My SSD was 512GB and the NVME is 256GB. Thankfully the actual usage was about 120GB or so. Easy enough to clone from the larger SSD if it isn't physically being used.
In my experience, guided more these days by I will get away with it if I can, doing the above is fine without the need for a fresh install. Not something that I relish these days, can't remember the last time that I needed to do it, with regular(ish) Macrium backups.

Beautiful, got it, thank you so much.

I love amazon and their return policy, I used a 3600 for 2 months while the whole covid return extension thing was in effect, found a 3700x for a great price so returned it for a full refund no questions asked
I have the 1tb drive of this for my games installs. Got it for £100 around black Friday no complaints holds up against my 256gb WD black

Gaming but I bought it because I needed a new SSD, not because I had an SSD which wasn't fast enough.
Cheers!
