Been looking at these since getting the Dell Inspiron 15 7577 that popped up on here last week and noticed a small price drop so jumped on it.

Hope this helps others save a few bob on this top end drive

Doesn't that laptop already have a solid state drive in it?

no the one everyone bought doesnt. good deal - hot.
Looks good, I will need one soon too, the laptop I bought will have a 128GB Toshiba SSD, so nowhere near as fast as this one

Though if you want better speed, I suggest you get something like this instead - scan.co.uk/pro…250

Interesting!

I've been out of hardware game for so long a bit lost on specs but from what I can see the Samsung is marginally faster max read, but Corsair is substantially faster max write?

Samsung = 3200 mb/s max read, 330k IOPS max random read, 1500 mb/s max write, 300k IOPS max random write
Corsair = 3000 mb/s max read, 250k IOPS max random read, 2400 mb/s max write, 210k IOPS max random write

No idea what the IOPS bit means mind but if bigger is better then Samsung is best here.


Very confused now
IOPS - Input/output operations per second.

Unless you deal mainly with large sequential files (most people don't) then an NVMe drive is barely any quicker in general use than a SATA III/6Gbps SSD. Game loading times of say 30 seconds will come down by about half a second for example.

Many thanks for your input.

I guess the question is then, for general day to day and light gaming on the aformentioned laptop, would there really be any benefit in this Samsung drive over say this one amazon.co.uk/DRE…ssd

What about on ebuyer?
An extra 10£ but you get Far Cry 5...
Good deal too if you're buying this game or if you intend on selling the key.

If you want a good reliable m.2 for day to day use and dont really need the extra check the 860 or even the other WD black deal on here. 20£ cheaper.

I don't really know that model but some reviews consider it good for everyday use, probably as good as a SATA SSD on a small form factor.
