How does this compare to the Samsung Evo 970 500gb?

How does this compare to the Samsung Evo 970 500gb?


The EVO trounces it but that's because it's nearly double the price.
This'll be ideal for an external Nvme enclosure for a fast external drive.
Do these work in normal m.2 slots?
the sata version of this gets very hot in my laptop ... samsung seemed to run cooler

If it has PCIe lanes. If it’s SATA only then no.
Do these typically last as long as a average 500gb ssd?
My laptop boots in under 3 seconds with a crucial mx500 SSD. How much will this, or a Samsung Evo shave off that figure?

And outside of synthetic benchmarks, for day to day usage, gaming etc, any benefit.

I'm asking as I may set my OS to boot off this and my ssd as mass storage if it's worth the hassle moving windows.

Very little difference, if any. These have higher read/write speeds so copying large files too/from them can be much faster, if the other drive is also up to that speed. However for day to day its random access times that matter more and those aren't really that different between any decent quality SSD's.

Under 3 seconds is already very fast, would making it boot under that really make that much difference? Not being sarcastic, just a thought. The hassle of swapping windows to another drive would waste many of 3 seconds.. imagine if u did and it took 4 seconds to boot.. wouldn't that just cause u so much more time. 3 seconds is pretty quick already, just stick with what setup u got. ,
Dont buy QLC SSDs! If we encourage this behaviour we will get to a time where old spinning disks are better than SSDs for sequential reads/writes.

I know, I was just curious. 3 seconds is sometimes too fast anyway, especially when you want to get into the bios.

I was thinking if it was faster, even by a few tenths of a second, to put it as my boot drive and then use the 1TB SSD as storage. I only have room for 1 2.5" drive and 1 m.2.
It's too slow compared to other m.2- nvme drives around the same price
This is the first time I have seen this type of product and don't yet really understand it's use, so I am thinking from what I read that:
1. this fits into the ram slot, or into the HHD slot if you have a spare slot
2. this is a mass storage that runs from the ram slot, and therefore we can do away with our existing mass storage (HHD or SSD)

If this how I see it, I wonder if I would be better to use this rather than the standard Integral 240gb SSD (from a recent post on here) I recently purchased to swap out my HHD in my Acer Revo 70 nettop pc, which I use as my daily pc, which currently has a 750gb HHD and 4 GB of ram, I don't need massive storage these days, but speed and reliability would be good.

I have not swapped out the HHD for the SSD yet, but I am considering doing very soon.

This is what Crucial state as compatible with my Revo 70 uk.crucial.com/gbr…-70

I may of course got it all completely wrong

I would be interested to hear from some of the knowledgeable people on here please
It's nothing to do with ram slots. This is just a faster type of SSD that uses a slot called M.2. It looks like your PC doesn't have the slot for this kind of drive. You need one of the older and still far more common 2.5" sata SSD

This is an M.2 SSD, meaning it slots into an m.2 slot, which is different to a ram slot and a sATA slot that HDDs and SATA SSDs use. If you want to upgrade your acer laptop, unfortuntely this will not work, you need a SATA SSD, like the integral 240gb you mention.
I’m looking for a 500gb NVMe drive to upgrade my 2015 MacBook Pro with an adaptor, any recommendations? Thanks

I'd go for the corsair mp510 it's around £60 but its probably the fastest youd get that size

I think they do it in 480gb I guess the other thing you need to consider is the adaptor max speed. Never used them to be honest

Don't be daft. QLC isn't for everyone. but it's a great low-end, mid-perf option. Its advent hasn't affected progress at the high end, and you're free to buy a 5GB/s TLC drive instead, if you prefer.
Would one of these, with a housing, work as an external for an Xbox x? Or is it overkill and just buy a passport ssd?

Yeah it would, but it's slight overkill. Any SATA drive on sale now is quicker than the USB 3 connection.
