I had my eye on this for a while. This card reviewed very well from thessdreview.com/our…/5/ when I was recently researching various NVMEs.

I trust this site because they do primarily reviews on storage and their review/info/testing is thorough convincing. To quote the article at the end:

In fact, we would go as far as to say that even the best would have a very hard time differentiating between this and any mainstream upper tier DRAM buffer contained SSD on the market in blind typical or performance testing.

To me that is a very strong review and ultimately, along with other reviews, I believe this SSD is fine for most things unless you're a heavy user, but in such scenario you know what you're looking for already most likely and don't need to be told this.

    Not sure what you meant by "non-critical" but this drive will be fine for most uses. It can write a lot of data (~160GB) before the speed drops to ~500MB/s and has plenty of IOPS to spare. Not recommended for use in heavy productivity workloads, but it's not a mass storage device either.

    Tempted to get this and pop it in an enclosure to use for offloading Xbox Series games locally rather than having to delete and redownload them when the internal drive fills up. Anybody have experience of using a USB drive for this purpose, I know you can't run Series X games directly from a USB drive but supposedly you can use it as a game archive.

    Would this be good for a Steam game drive? Not too sure on what to get when it comes to NVMe drives. I got one of the Lenovo Legion desktops posted last week but wouldn't mind a bit more than the 512GB OS drive.

    Yeah this would work great as a game drive. You're not going to notice much difference between loading a game off this and a SATA ssd though, yet. But if you have a spare slot this is a good price for a 1tb.

    Awesome, thanks for the reply! I'll go for one of these in that case. Am I right to assume they are better than the Crucial P2?

    This has higher rated read write speeds than the P2. The nice thing about Samsung ssds is the memory and controller are developed in house rather than cobbled together with components from different manufacturers.

    I currently use a 512GB SSD to do this, and yes, transfer speeds are great in comparison to redownloading games.

    I think I’m gonna get the 2TB MX500 when it drops again, and use that to keep XSX games in archive when not actively playing them.

    Looks like my WD SN750 500GB boot drive packed up, this seems a good replacement without spending considerably more?

    Yeah but it was my boot drive and had some files on it, first need to get something to install Windows on and then see what I can recover from it myself.
