I use this as an additional drive for my Steam and multimedia library. Very pleased with its performance having purchased through WD store for less than a oner recently with discount code.


For the vast majority of people, they're not going to notice a difference (or sometimes only a very minor difference) between an NVMe SSD and SATA SSD. Although this NVMe SSD is one of the slower ones.


Ahh yes he did. My appologies

It doesn’t need one to function but with many NVME drives they start to thermal throttle under heavy use. The provided heat sink does lower the temperature a little bit but if your motherboard comes with a heat sink that should be used instead.


Mine arrived today if people are interested in the heatsink.


If used standard i think not, but the description does talk about overclocking as a option so i guess thats when you would use the heatsink.


Does it need a heatsink?


It does include a optional heat sink to show off if thats ur thing, and cloning software so a good all around package.

That's only useful for something like large file transfer or high resolution/bitrate video editing For normal use (office, web, gaming etc), the noticeable difference is little if any.


The difference between SATA and NVMe is quite big. An NVMe drive is twice the price and atleast twice the performance. A SATA drive will be limited to around 500mbs whereas an NVMe will hit between 2000-3000mbs. Huge difference between SATA and NVMe.


It's DRAM-less. Better spend your money on SSD with DRAM.

Why tho? The price?


I’d still say the TBW values still won’t be hit by most people. I’ve an 2TB Intel 660p as my main drive it’s got a TBW of 400. Roughly that means I have to write 200gb to the drive every day for five years to exceed the TBW in the warranty period. Even if I had the 512gb which has a lower rating of 100TBW that’s still 50gb of data written (and on the 512gb that’s about 10% of the drive capacity) to it each day. Very, very few people will do this each and every day. If your constantly editing HD/4K/8k video maybe, but then you’d have not bought a budget drive in the first place.


The only thing to consider is whether it'll be a boot (Windows) drive or not - if so, and considering for many people a drive like this would be a long term investment - I'd probably say it's worth going for a TLC as it'll be getting *alot* more read/writes. If it's a secondary drive, then agreed, I doubt many would hit the limits of a QLC.


For £10 more the Sabrent Rocket is a better buy (235 reviews vs nearly 6000 and 82% 5* vs 89% 5*). T H I S *

WD_Black SN750 250GB NVMe Internal Gaming SSD - Gen3 PCIe, M.2 2280, 3D NAND - WDS500G3X0C £52.99 @amazon western digital

The WD Black is twice as fast. Hence i would want one with a heatsink but for those who can heatsink it another way WD is worth considering.


umm sorta out of context, it was a simple refute of the other posters justification of this, btw FO4 GOTY is just shy of 100GB not rare these days.


I have the 1Tb version in my 2nd M.2 slot - it's perfect as a Steam/Epic drive. I have a 2Tb Sabrent Rocket in the primary M.2 slot (got a great Amazon Warehouse deal @ £167) for OS and photo editing suite. Both drives perform virtually identically, so I'd be hard pushed to recommend the dearer WD Black over the Rocket.


Yeah it's not huge. About 20gb for the actual install. But you need 40gb free I think to ensure that future patches and security updates work.


Windows takes 15gb right?

I'd avoid this drive like the plague nothing but issues with mine


Many won't recall but back when SSD's started, the crucial C300 etc. It was SLC. Even then folks were giving guides on how to move your page file and other windows files off it so it didn't affect the wear of the drive. Yes, QLC is definitely not as resilient as TLC, which wasn't as resilient as MLC, which wasn't as resilient as SLC, which wasn't as resilient as hard drives. Folks with this sort of... well, it's genuinely approaching paranoia, should stick with mechanicals, try not to drop them more than a couple of inches, keep them cool and.... QLC is MUCH cheaper to make than TLC/MLC/SLC, so... seeing these for nearly as much as TLC... nah, THAT IS a problem. The amount of a beating they need to take daily for anyone to care is well into "academic interest" levels for well over 99% of the population. They SHOULD be much cheaper though.


Maybe i've just got a bad drive but i've had nothing but problems with this nvme, all of my other drives has been find and i've tried it on 2 motherboards, same isssues, i'd avoid personally.


Yes, the price is crazy high now. I remember it being around £80 - £90 for 1TB.


For game storage drives you really won't be impacted by it, these constant "don't get QLC" posts are inane and idiotic and show people have no understanding of how the technology works and what the use case is. There is a whole range of high speed high endurance drives for the use cases where you need that, high capacity is a different use case so the endurance doesn't matter. Most of us that were early SSD adopters have SLC drives that will probably outlive us.

Thank you!


I also don't think regarding consoles, the high end speeds matter. Consoles aren't able to utilise the full speed of the SSD for some reason so load times are limited by the slow SOC of a console. Get the cheapest SSD possible.


The mx500 has possible issues with wrongly reporting SMART errors. Their fix never fixed it properly. I'd opt for the WD blue.


Yes but I'd say WD's customer service is better.


Thanks. I've picked up a brand new 2Tb Crucial MX500 and plan on trying that in my PS5 Pro soon.

Do not buy this as it does not have a DRAM. This has 2005 specs. Very sub standard. It's cheap for a reason. Ribbit.🐸


Definitely, spending a few quid more for a good SSD is just going to spare you a few annoyances later on.


Thank you for that in-depth explanation. It's greatly appreciated. I'll make sure to get a good quality m.2 drive, as looking to shift my gaming pc for this gaming laptop (hp omen 15), want to make sure the quality is there as it'll be my work and play system going forward. :)


There's 2 main types of M.2 drives, SATA or NVMe. SATA M.2 drives are basically limited by the interface to speeds of up to around 500MB/s reads / writes, while NVMe ones since they use PCIe tend to be much faster (PCIe gen 3 ones going up to around 3000MB/s reads / writes). The reason why that SSD above isn't really a great deal is because it has no DRAM. Basically an SSD is composed of 3 main components, the NAND flash chips to which you write your data to, the controller which interfaces between your PC and the NAND flash (also handles a lot of tertiary functions) and finally the DRAM chip(s) which handles mapping tables. Mapping tables are basically what they sound like, a map of where all of your data is in those NAND flash chips so when you try to read or write something the controller knows where that data is or should go. To cut costs recently a lot of SSDs came out without DRAM, which can impact performance considerably since the SSDs have to write mapping data to the NAND chips (DRAM is significantly faster and lower latency than NAND). SATA DRAM-less drives tend to generally be quite poor performance wise and I'd only really recommend them if you're getting 120GB or 240GB variants to speed up an old laptop or maybe for a Raspberry Pi project. NVMe DRAM-less drives tend to be somewhat faster due to the interface, most of these drives make use of HMB (Host Memory Buffer aka they'll allocate a small part of your system's RAM for their mapping tables), so they're not really a bad choice for game storage if you want to save a few quid. The WD Blue SN550 for example is a very good DRAM-less NVMe drive Of course I'd recommend you check out reviews first before you buy something, Anandtech, Tweaktown, Tomshardware tend to have pretty good reviews. A few quick recommendations if you just want to upgrade your system: For a boot drive you need something with DRAM of course, so a good NVMe drive like the ADATA SX8200 (Pro), Silicon Power P34A80, Sabrent Rocket, WD Black, Kingston A2000 / KC2000, Samsung 970 EVO (Plus), Seagate Firecuda/Barracuda 510 should do the trick. For game/multimedia storage any NVMe drive should suffice. SATA M.2 drives you should check out: Micron MX500, WD Blue, Samsung 860 EVO Also check your laptop's manual and see which M.2 slots support NVMe/SATA.

The rocket is fantastic. Can't speak for this but I roll through bitlocker and windows log in using my yubikey so quick I can't even go and put the hot water in my coffee without outlook loading


£41 on ebay. Basically was as new, just didn’t have original packaging. Tested it and it was 1500MB read 1000MB write so bargain for me.


I never trust the manufacturer figures but instead look at benchmarks from users & news sites. Most show CrystalDiskMark figures which you can then compare against each other. And for me I tend to discard the sequential speeds and look at the 4K and low queue depth figures, as that's more important for my usage. The original Rocket and SX8200 Pro are very close though. It's only the newer Rocket that is the clear winner.


Great little drive, and it's VERY nippy, but this is very misleading as it won't hit anywhere near those headline write speeds. Those speeds are for the 2TB model. The 256GB model has a vastly slower write speed of 1200MB/s. The datasheet is on ADATA's website. (Write speeds in bold italics.) Capacity 256GB ATTO Seq. Read (MB/sec) 3350 ATTO Seq.

True that the price are making me mad these days.. I wish the time comes around again .. :( You won't believe but I posted these for £84.99 and £39.99 respectively but as the vocuher got stacked I bought thesee as below : 2TB was about £109.99 but didn't buy it.




NVME SSD prices are silly at the moment. Really not a good time to buy new from retail. You just get inferior quality at an inflated price. Hunt on ebay instead. I recently got a 2TB Sabrent, brand new and sealed for £170 and it came a couple of days ago.




For NVME drives id recommend currently 1TB - https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07MV5FVMS?tag=pcp0f-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1 2TB - https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07S69GZGS?tag=pcp0f-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1 these are technically the same drive, just branded by diffrent companies,like many others they use the refrence Phision E12(S) design, sometimes drives based on the Silicon Motion SM2262EN are also good deals but you need to be careful as manufacturers can select what DDR they use as cache (if you spot any good deals check the product specification and it should say what controler it uses) they too are great drives, but usually cost a bit more.

Sabrent Rocket Q 2TB NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Performance Solid State Drive £218.99 Sold by SLJ Trading and Fulfilled by Amazon
Posted 10th MayPosted 10th May
Best deal I found for a 2TB m.2 nvme ssd, better value for 2 1TB drives plus better than average read and write speeds!

I went for it @ ~£205 from Amazon Germany (with free Amazon Prime trial to get next day shipping). At £45 less than the TLC version, and also cheaper than non-NVMe equivalents, I still think this is a fair price for the slightly lower performance and endurance over TLC, which most people won't even notice. Certainly for my use-case, which is external Xbox storage, I'd rather pocket the £45 saving (y)


I got excited when I saw this at first, thought it was the Samsung 970 Plus beater for about £30 more than a 1tb version.. Back to watching Borris (on repeat) pounding his fists on his desk telling us all we can beat this thing together !


Isn't this just RRP for this drive?


Oh I didn’t look into it, I’m just talking about Amazon’s standard policy on tech - easy to get them to replace stuff within 2 years


2 years warranty is crap as well sorry. The decent ones will have 5 year. Then some drop that to 3 years. 2 years is poor haha sorry.

Yes NVMe wont make much difference in games or boot times compared to SSD :) HDD is very slow.


Thank you, there's a few quid saved then assuming my old 830 won't be a bottleneck - I've got the 4TB for bulk media storage. Is the video still accurate 4 years on?


NVMe is not necessary for a boot drive, save your money and use a normal SSD :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdF_aerWcW8


Trying to get my head around all this as my PC is based on kit that ranges from 3 to 8 years old. I've currently got an AMD Phenom II X6 1045t, with 8GB DDR3 RAM, an R7 260X, and the following drives: Samsung 830 SSD (128 GB) Western Digital Blue (I think) 4TB Western Digital Blue 512GB (used for dumping miscellaneous stuff that I don't want to get backed up from the 4TB) An old Samsung SATA BD-ROM/DVD-RW I've just bought 16GB of DDR4 RAM from a deal today, I'm planning on getting the MSI Mortar Max board, and the Ryzen 5 3600, probably a new GFX card when I can afford it. I don't game on here, I've got an XBOX 1 X for that, but I'm doing simple video editing in Camtasia and I've finally got around to installing Cubase. ---- In brief, should I be getting an nVME drive? Would probably be looking at between 256GB and 512GB, and using it for a boot drive. I'd then probably ditch the Samsung 830 and the old SATA 512GB hard drives.


Interesting, I hadn’t thought of that. I’d imagine that would disable Windows Secure Boot though.
