Can someone install this for me?


Patiently waiting for the "it's not NVME" comment


Despite the Amazon mis-description, this is of course a WD Blue. Well, for one thing, I don't think WD do a 2TB Black NVMe version and the 1TB NVMe WD Black is around this price. BTW, this seems to be an Amazon pricebot matching Ebuyer again: https://www.ebuyer.com/801064-wd-blue-2tb-3d-nand-ssd-m-2-2280-at-ebuyer-com-wds200t2b0b

Monitor the temperature along with transfer rate - there are quite a few open source apps that record nice little charts - then let it idle and transfer some big files and see how it goes


How do you check for thermal throttling?


I have a laptop with a one SATA and Nvme drive because its slots demand it. Can I tell the difference? Um, nope. If it was possible I absolutely would not have bothered with Nvme.


Yes, there are. eg: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Transcend-TS-CM80S-Solid-State-Enclosure/dp/B01N4EUXCU What you need to know is the type of the drive and the physical length. The M2 format comes in 2 electrical types, SATA and NVMe. They aren't compatible to each other and M2 ports don't necessarily support both (even though physically, the port is nearly identical). In terms of the length, the M2 drives come in different sizes eg. 2242, 2260 or 2280. The last 2 numbers is the length (in mm). If your case fits 2280 (the largest one) then it can fit the smaller ones too, but there are some shorter cases that fit only 2242.


(lol) Why compare an NVME drive to a SATA drive? Are you on something? Can I have some?

Thank you! I just thought m.2 was m.2 I didn't spot the difference, so thank you :D


The crucial MX500 is a sata 3 drive that's available with the M.2 form factor (easier installation). Whereas the Evo 970 is an NVMe drive. It's a different protocol and allows significantly higher performance than sata however can cost up to twice as much per gigabyte For most people, a sata drive is more than enough in terms of performance.


Would anyone have any views on this? 250GB for £79.99 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-V-NAND-Express-Solid-State/dp/B07CGGNX7S So half the space of the original posted one, but for some reason the speeds seem massively different? read/write speeds up to 3,500/2,700 MB/s*, approximately - for the Samsung one where as the originally posted one is reads/writes up to 560/510 MB/s Why is there such a difference are they completely different types of m2 or something?


Potentially get £5 bonus https://www.amazon.co.uk/b?node=11301833031


Fitted one to a cheap laptop a few weeks ago, very speedy for a SATA drive. Faster than a WD Blue, only slightly overall slower than a Samsung 860. It does have better 4K random read performance though which is one of the most common tasks in Windows and makes everything feel very snappy.

Hopefully you only have to deal with the retailer and not Adata themselves for warranty. Over 2 months and I am still waiting for my 2 replacement SSD's. Their latest excuse is that the shipment into the EU was stopped because it contains lead. Seriously wtf? Just try to google Adata reviews and see if you can review them as a company anywhere, you can't, because it would be 100% negative.


You could of 1Tb a few weeks ago for £114, the 360gb SSD drives on Amazon where £38 each delivered,I bought one as a new gaming drive.


Chrisst170 linked one on Amazon from startech. It's a good choice as it's the same one you can buy from CCL.


I just bought this combination: PCIe adapter plus 1TB NVMe SSD and still had change out of 200 quid. I needed an adapter because my only M.2 slot is taken up by an SM961 NVMe boot SSD. The 660p isn't as fast as this Adata, but I was leaning towards price per GB rather than outright speed. I'm just going to use my for Linux Steam library, which is currently 600GB and sitting on HDD at the moment, so I'll get 10 times the performance, which is good enough for my use case.


Guys any recommendation for adaptor, I have older mobo but pleanty of x4 or x16 slots. It's not for bootable drive just for storage. There are many in ebay for around 10£ but not sure they will work

Many motherboards have at least two m.2 slots. Often one is nvme and the other is sata.


I think you perhaps misunderstood me. What I was saying is if only getting sata based drive it should be standard 2.5” as no reason to go M.2 in a normal system. IF paying the m.2 premium makes sense to go NVMe and have as fast as possible even if barely noticeable. I doubt most people notice 3000mhz DDR4 over 2600 or 2600 over 2133 but we often choose to spend a little extra for a small improvement. A handful of barely noticeable improvements can add up eventually. And 5x is pretty big. I had to go m.2 and for £20 difference NVMe was worth it to me as didn’t need super large capacity drive. I will add I do think it’s notably faster on boot. I’m roughly 6s now button to usable windows screen. Maybe not a significant or useful increase but you can tell vs the 2.5 sata SSD.


The jump in performance from a mechanical HDD to and SSD is vastly superior than the jump from an SSD to an NVME. Remember that the biggest improvement in SSD is not the read/write speed, but the random read access times which it can easily be 400 times faster than an regular HDD. What I am trying to say, it is kind of pointless to buy a NVMe because of the performance boost. Which is not really noticeable in reality.


Keep in mind that many ultra-thin laptops don't come with a 2.5" drive bay now, instead they have 2 M2 sockets - so this drive will be very useful for filling that second socket.


I could have had this or the NVMe but chose this in 500gb flavour for around £75. Plenty fast enough for my needs, in the real world I wouldn't appreciate the extra speed for the extra cost. Got this over a standard SSD so I didn't have to faff with moving drives and cables around, just pop this in the mobo and was the same price.

It's a DMI issue but if you attach 1 to a PCI x4 to m.2 card and one to the m.2 slot in the motherboard you get better speeds


Cheers mate I've ordered one and it's kick started the new Ryzen 2700x build (y)


Raid 0 has some serious problems when it comes to SSDs. All striping versions of speed increases were mainly for spinning disk. It has some benefit in throughput, large file reads, however, it actually slows access time.


I have them in RAID0 and it's not a whole hell of a lot faster due to DMI limitations. I wanted to run the second one in a PCIe slot, but on my board if I run 2x 1080TIs in SLI they each max at x8 and if I add anything to the 3rd PCIe slot (say an x4 to M.2 card) then slot 2 also drops to x4. Let this be a lesson to you: never buy gigabyte - anything.


The price has gone back up a bit to 135.99 still a great deal.

yes yours is a sata M2 drive. Any sata M.2 drive should be compatible, whatever the size. There is another format for similar looking drives - called MVMe drives which look very similar. As long as the drive says Sata M.2 it will be fine.


Thank you. And does it look like it'll be fine for replacing a Sandisk X400 120GB? In terms of size I mean? Wasn't sure if what I have now is Sata? Someone confused me with a comment on another thread about Sata and another format? Any idea how to erase my current M.2 SSD in order to resell? Cheers


Yes, Macrium reflect. This is free and is all you need to clone an existing drive to an SSd and then be able to directly boot from the SSD as if it is your old drive.


western digital bought sandisk and the western digital green is actually just a rebranded sandisk drive, so performance will be no different. It is double the size so you'll have more space and consequently double the number of writes before failure.


You mean HP have a whitelist of parts so if it's not on the Whitelist it's not coming in. Apple are even worse in this respect. Apple are about the worst company for doing this (he says whilst typing on a Mac Mini whilst simultaneously dreaming of a future update to the Mac Mini lineup).

Why are you being ripped off? They are charging more for a superior technology. People are willing to pay more for that. Companies like to make a profit.


But there is no real reason for the big price differences - everything is the same except the controller. So it looks like we are being ripped off for NVME drives. If the SATA drives didn't exist they couldn't do that. Grasp that if you can!


And NVME drives are more expensive. What is so hard to grasp about that?


Sucks for people like me who have laptops that only accept m.2 SATA drives.


To be fair there is a significant difference in prices between SATA and NVME.


Difference between these 2 apart from price? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-V-NAND-Express-Solid-State/dp/B07CGGP7SV/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1539508151&sr=8-1&keywords=samsung%2B970%2Bevo%2B1tb&th=1 and https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-MZ-V7E500BW-SSD-970-Internal/dp/B07BN4NJ2J/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&ref_=ox_sc_act_image_1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

It'll be 500GB at this price - and the performance is fine. You might get a SATA 2TB for 260 at Black Friday but if you dont know the devices and market then maybe best to steer clear of nVME SSDs all together


Great price for a 500GB NVMe drive.

As a bonus the Crucial MX500 is also a self encrypting drive.


Yea beware of the connection type not the m.2 form factor sata3 and pcie connections are not the same speeds at all.


Nope. This drive is the SATA version. The WD Black is NVMe.


this isnt an NVMe though is it?


Is it slow even for SATA speeds, or are you comparing this WD Blue to an NVMe drive? Because this WD Blue is SATA.

Think this is a great deal, be gentle, this is my first post :{

Had a look around for info on spotting potential fakes and one avenue would be installing the Samsung Magician software Samsung Magician


Oh just ordered from Cex too! Interested to hear how things unfold I hadn’t even considered possibility of fakes.


There is just over supply of SSD at the moment. Samsung may have over-produced and some retailer have over-purchased? It is a new drive, repost for your information Thanks for the info, though I can't find an easy source to check serial number with Samsung. Physcially, it looks exactly the same as shown in pictures.


Double check your serial number with Samsung as there are now fakes of these drives around, a bit like the dodgy Sanddisk/Samsung SD cards. Obviously these are harder to fake/easier to spot if you know what you are looking for and what performance to expect. The obvious fakes are the green PCB drives with fake labelling on them, and the others have some branded RAM chips that are non-Samsung which is harder to spot. I've not yet, but I do sometimes get stock from Amazon, so am keeping my eyes peeled for any potential fakes.


Care to speculate why someone would do that? Also have you run ssdlife to check if a repacked refurb drive?

No need. The windows 10 installer has Microsoft issued NVMe drivers and had had from day 1 but they do some silly things like bypassing the controllers features on some NVMe drives and performance tanks. Installing the latest from the Samsung site is by fast the easiest method.
