Trying to chill an NVME drive is counter productive. Don't worry about M.2 heatsinks.The MX500 is a SATA SSD so will be limited by the interface, around 550MB/s. This is a lot faster in a benchmark but will "feel" about the same. The "speed" you feel from an SSD is from the IOPS and lack of latency, not raw MB/s throughput.


Counterproductive? Mate you're being reported for you spread of misinformation. Since forever - tech runs better and lasts longer. From the CPU, GPU, RAM, HDD, SSD even the PSU run better and longer when at optimal operating temperature. Is a long standing well known FACT. Excess heat is bad for them and will drastically shorten the life span and performance.

Totally disgusting for you to go round and spread your unsupported belief. My evidence? Learn to use Goggle and you will find countless 100's of thousands of article from present and past.

Pretty much any SSD is enough, if all you want is a quicker boot.

Good price better performing than a sata ssd. Personally rather pay a lil more for a sabranet 3500/2000 MB/s

Good price, solid product, no need for hair splitting,

does what it says on the tin + more.....

I was on about nvme's .....
Of this and the MX500, which is the better buy?

Never had an M.2 SSD and the comments about needing heatsinks concern me.

I've heard this said before about NAND liking more heat and conversely I read about the throttling some NVME drives suffer from as they're too hot! I suspect the problem is there's insufficient surface area of the NVME PCB to dissipate and regulate the heat and it's suspended in air above the motherboard.... The gist seems to be that it writes better at around 30c, but throttles at higher temps....that sounds like most electronics to me...ultimately higher temps can reduce the life of componenets, I guess common sense is required!

The fastest nvme drives Vs slowest sata ssds is only a couple of seconds difference for boot times. For web browsing and moderate gaming these drives would be fine. Definitely not good for video content creators.

The NAND chips work best with some heat in them, the controller chip works best when cooled, so a heatsink solution is a bit of a compromise between the two options. Bear in mind most of the higher end motherboards have built in nVME drive heatsinks now too.

OK so a fan that alternates between blowing hot and cold is the answer

Rubbish for large transfers ie 10's of gb in one go, drops to below hard disk speed. However for day to day its good. I use mine for the local copy of OneDrive and Dropbox and very happy with it.

For an OS drive though, might be tempted to spend a bit more on a sabrent.

What are you on about dude. The issue with the faster NVME drives is the controller overheating, which definitely do not like heat. Not the NAND. Heatsinks are fine.

I've got this drive. Honestly noticed no difference between this, my old Samsung 830, mx500, Samsung Evo 970 etc etc.

As others have said any SSD is better than HDD. I have noticed the drive is not great when moving large files, such as doing backups. But honestly how often do you really move large files in one go as a regular user (gamer?).

If the price was close is say yeh grab an SSD that doesn't slow down when moving files. But otherwise this is fine.

Anyone rate the silicon power 1tb can be had for £120 on amazon, meant to be good speeds
docs.google.com/spr…tml
P34A80 < search on list. Its a gen 3 high performance SSD (Phison E12 controller), unfortunately there are no TBW specifications (may find them on manufacturer's website).

See my first post for other links.

Hi. Which one would you recommend for a MacBook Pro? Of course I know the Samsung ones are the best but really expensive. What I'm really looking for is more space. I use my MacBook for final cut mostly. Although i do edit off from an external drive I find the internal 512GB is not enough.

Or if anyone else can recommend something?

Thanks in advance.

Crucial mx500 1tb for a sata ssd has a good price/performance ratio. Adata SX8200/sabrent rocket for an nvme. Wait for sales for better prices though.
