Good price for a great ssd.
Wow, purchased.
Good if you only have SATA. Being limited as it is by SATA now, other drives have at least equalled it and been very cheap this year, such as the Crucial MX500.
Ordered, thank you! Hope it won’t be cheaper than this on BF
I have this SSD and it's made one hell of a difference! Windows only takes about 10 seconds to boot as opposed to 1 minute+ on my HDD and games load way quicker. Loading a save file in Final Fantasy 15 only takes 33 seconds instead of 2-3 minutes on a HDD.

Yes, if you have the money to go for a good performing NVME SSD then that will be theoretically faster but in real world this will be fast enough for about 90% of the users.

Also, isnt this similar or better in performance to budget NVME SSDs like the Crucial P1 in real world tests?

It is also faster than the Crucial MX500, so probably the best SSD you can buy in this price range.

I think it may go for £100 as on Prime Day but not the fee free price of £94

The difference between this and good SATA SSDs like the MX500 is negligible, both are constrained by the old SATA bus. The Crucial has been under £100 for ages, seen as low as £79 earlier this year, and below this price with other ebay codes for example.

So by now if you haven't already dropped on something like one of those after all this time, this is a great deal for you.

In terms of low end PCIe then the difference will also be small. But versus stuff like the Adata XPG SX8200 Pro which has been under £120 for quite some time (The ebay code the other day were taking those to £117, next ebay code on Tuesday possibly lower), this gets annihilated and you want to go and buy a proper PCIe drive like that.

So if you're very very late to the party and only have SATA then this will do nicely as I said.

Yup I am late then but have not seen good Samsung drives go for this low ever so am going for this now.

And I dont have the cash to spend 25% more for a NVME SSD as I know in real world it would have hardly any benefits.

It really depends on what you are doing of course. £20 or 20 percent more for the Adata is a no brainer if you have the ability to use PCIe on a motherboard. It's a higher end consumer drive easily more than twice as fast as the best SATA drives such as this Samsung.

Something to watch.

NVME Intel 660p vs 860 Evo Sata:


Also, another video to see that the Adata is not much faster than the Intel 660p or for that matter the 860 Evo in real world.


If you have already bought the SSD you want thats great. At this point in time and for a Samsung SSD with 5 year warranty and ridiculous high endurance, the 860 Evo fits the bill.

Strange choice of videos, the Adata is clearly faster than the 660p which I assume you are using to try and compare to the 860 Evo. For example in the QD32 seq and QD8 random tests it's twice as fast as the 660p.

Granted on current games, you'll not see a lot of difference. One or two seconds loading. However if you're dealing with other kind of practical tests like network drives with multiple thin clients, rendering, database, editing large photos and video, dumping large sequential files, using virtual machines, the Adata blows any and every SATA away. As stated, depends what you're up to.

Then there is the future, where games are almost certainly going to be much better optimised for high speed PCIe drives if next gen consoles have any say in the matter next year. And they will.

This drive is absolutely perfect if you're constrained by SATA3.

But if you have NVMe PCIe then again, it's an absolute no brainer to pick up something like the Adata for a mere £20 extra. End of the day it's each to their own choice. There just isn't really a good reason to NOT use a PCIe NVMe drive these days since the price premium has significantly shrunk.
NVME for OS and some essential programs, SSD for games and documents etc.
Crucial MX500 1TB for £95 on Amazon. Is this SSD better than Crucial?

Nvme certainly seems worth the small premium for a much more future-proof solution

Crucial MX500 1TB for £95 on Amazon. Is this SSD better than Crucial?




Real world buy whichever is cheaper but at the same price point, go for Samsung.
Ordered. Had my eye on this a few days ago when the price dropped.
Was holding out for the MX500 to drop a little more but picked up the 860 EVO as it will at least match the 950 & 850 drives I already have. It will replace a SanDisk Ultra II 960GB drive that I will use with my Xbox One X.
Edited by: "Zico" 3rd Nov
you thnink it will be anything cheaper on Black friday?
Thanks Bud, ordered, I've been waiting on this going for under 100,
Nice, but not a door-Buster.. when they come in at £65 @1tb or £110 for 2TB thats when to buy. feckall diff between this and other hi end SSD's eg mx500 .
ALtho the software pack with samsung is very good esp RAPID mode equals nvme for small xfrs
deal ended
Can anyone help on getting my windows 10 on to this? I have a 256 EVO, or am I better to have the os on the 256? I run a lot of VST's & program's, which would be best?

A 256gb EVO would be great for OS.

Provided you can use the 1TB for your programs, games, and VMs and VSTs.

Both would be awesome option for OS, depends on your needs.
That was quick. Ordered Sunday and it turned up today. If I had ordered from Amazon UK it would have likely taken the full 5 days.
