I would think the Samsung 860 EVO 500gb would have grabbed the spot for best SATA as you can get it for $99 (500gb) and it's quite fast. I doubt the pro is fast enough to justify the cost over the EVO version.
The drive is 2.5", which means SATA. That system's boot drive is a NvME PCIe x4 drive, the 960 EVO. The data drive was running out of space due to backups, so I needed something bigger and didn't want mechanical.
We understand that the staff is currently working on some issues with the pricing widget; this is by far not the only article in which errors of this sort appear.
It hasn't mattered how much build experience I have; unless time is more important than money (only sometimes the case), I usually come to the forums before I build a new system because someone will almost always know about a much better deal than I found.
Do not buy the HP EX920. HP does NOT stand by the claimed 5 year warranty. Also their system does not recognize it's serial number so you can't register for any of it's warranties. I'm speaking from experience. Returning mine back to it's retailer ASAP. I've even contacted HP on their official forum.
Tom's this product should not be recommended all!!!
Since enterprise SSD's are available at increased capacity albeit lesser performance, what criteria would be necessary to allow a consumer ssd review to include performance numbers from enterprise ssd's? I wonder since many are available from sites like amazon. If a consumer was willing to absorb the increased buyin of a 7.6tb enterprise ssd, what considerations are needed to make it work in a consumer environment? I ask because I didnt fully realize that these extra large capacities existed. Sounds intriging.
Would love an article about power loss protection in these drives...
And by the way: whats the cheapest 1Tb Enterprise SSD?
Because the only drives that guarantee writes are 100% reliable when the OS requests it, are the enterprise ones unfortunately...
Its better to still use HDDs for critical things which is disappointing.
