Also keep in mind that the heatsink model is not meant to have the heatsink removed. It can be removed; there are screws to loosen it but the glue pads keeping the heatsink to the memory chips are quite strong. If you don't preheat and handle it with care there is a fair chance that you'll pull one or more components loose.

Just to say: only buy the heatsink model if you are sure you never need to use it without it (in an enclosure, laptop, etc).Personally, I would rather buy an aftermarket heatsink if you need one.

Heat... 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Worth the extra tenner for the heat sink option?

Not from what I've read. Depends on how heavy your usage is.

Looks better if it's on show, could be worth it if it's behind the GPU ! Aftermarket heatsinks are around a £10.

I bought this a few days ago as a secondary NVMe for a new build and did the same research on the heatsink before going for the bare version for this very reason.

I also bought a Sabrent Rocket 4.0 with heatsink as primary, but they do it right and the package comes as two separate boxes in a cardboard sleeve.

What's the benefit of these over a traditional SSD? Is it just the space saving?

Unless you are moving around very big files, then you are not really going to notice much difference. Plenty of videos showing you the real world difference on your tube just search sata v nvme. More storage is better. I would take the much faster claim with a massive pinch of salt.

HDD v SATA SSD v M2NVME
Watch this, older drives, but still the same.

What you should be asking yourself is whether loading 1-2 seconds faster is worth paying 50% more.
Note price is important. 1 TB sata ssd drive are often c £80-90

Tech deals is points out the benefit of nvme, but make sure you get a decent price.

Can this be used just like any other SSD as internal HD replacement?
how does it compare vs the same price Samsung Evo?

Nope, it's an NVME so the technology is different to traditional Sata.
The Samsung Evo SSD's are rated at 540 Mb/s read and 520Mb/s write.
This WD NVME is rated at 3470MB/s Read 3000MB/s writes. it's in a totallty different league but you need an M.2 slot on your laptop / MB.
Not every plays games.
If you compile code you will see a big difference.

Only in specific circumstances. For the vast majority of people there will be little different or maybe 1-2 seconds. Its tiny. You need to look at random read and write then the picture is much different.

You need a PCIe capable M.2 given its NVME, not all M.2s will actually support it. Just thought worth pointing out.

Most people won't notice a difference but he asked what's the difference. I notice a difference for example due to the work I do but I'm in that small minority that actually need that transfer speed.

You're right. I always forget to mention the pcie part. Although nvme will work in any m.2 just that if it's not pcie capable it will just run at sata speeds

These have really high operating temperatures and heatsinks are only there for looks or of behind the graphics card. Remember these are passive and will only work if you have sufficient airflow.

Thanks, will probably avoid as my m2 slot is on the back of the motherboard and there’s hardly any flow there at all on that side of the case.

In that place is absolutely fine. Near the gpu is issue is with the GPU blowing hot air it's way, not the way around.
I got the Adata 8200 pro for £100. Installing large games it's lightning quick compared to my SSD.
So million dollar question, how does this compare to Samsung Evo series?

Good question, Evo available for £150. Can’t see what warranty on this one, Evo got 5yr (and probably better software for transferring the OS.
£164.32 now.
