Its its what i means, OS drive, is for OS and its programs, but not files, documents, movies, games, downloads etcSamsung 970 EVO Plus.
"ultimate Windows 10 Install SSD [and only for this] "
Keeping it to 'only Windows' is a waste of the drive. You want your applications on it as well.
I have bunch of SSDs: two 2TB MP510, Samsung 860EVO 2TB [in a box, will probably just sell it], 4TB brand new intel P4500 U.2 drive and 500GB HP ex920 [which i got as OS drives long time ago but now there are drives better, so ill put inside small case with USB 3 gen 2 and have very fast backup drive for the OS drive]And game launchers as well probably. Actual game files can be elsewhere. Keep in mind, any files not on that drive or any files transferred to or from that drive are going to be limited by whatever the speed of the OTHER drive is.
Well...a very common statement here is:Its its what i means, OS drive, is for OS and its programs, but not files, documents, movies, games, downloads etc
Personally I got used to this since Windows 95 times, when you have separate OS drive and something happens to the OS [now less of a chance then back then], a virus, some bad download that infected with worms, you know million reasons, doing full format is easy and nothing is lost.Well...a very common statement here is:
"Windows and only Windows!!"
And I always ask, 'Why?'
If all you have is a 1TB SSD, then absolutely the games, videos etc should go on some other drive.
But people trying to keep it to "Only Windows" is an effort in frustration, and a waste of a drive.
When people say OS drive I think they mean OS+Applications, at least thats what I mean lol."OS Only" is different than "OS + Applications"
I also have a dedicated drive for the OS and applications.
I would not try to keep it as "OS only'.
Almost certainly not the Sabrent. Reliability and track record counts for a lot.
and where these people want to put the applications to separate HDD? What kind of logic is that?Yes, you mean that. I do as well.
A LOT of people don't. See it here all the time.
TBW limit of 1665? I'b be shocked if anyone got to 20% of that in normal consumer use before "1TB" was too small.
My OS is on 850EVO 250GB, im too lazy to format waiting for new PC build, my Waterfox browser has bunch of plugins but most important is that i have over 5000Tabs open, maybe 6000 or more, i have a plugin that allows me to create "sub windows", categories, so i have category of YT and when i click I see all my YT channels, thousands of tabs, category with torrents/movies and it changes to that, this is how i manage so many tabs and even with such option and 4K screen 70% of my top screen is just tabd LOL, Anyway, I only mentioned this because im sure you understand such Browser takes time to load, even on my 9900K with 64GB RAM, but after I enabled RAPID mode, the browser loads much faster and feels snappier."RAM cache"? RAPID mode?
I tried that for a while. Saw zero actual user facing benefit. Benchmarks were awesome, though.
I have to disagree, MX500 and WD Blue dont lose to 860EVO and share the first place.Nobody has had a faster or more reliable consumer M.2 or SATA SSD than Samsung, for probably five years running, at least. Nobody.
I dont find any issues with Just Buy It article, jealous people and Nvidia haters started to pile on, otehr web sites and YT personalities [that maybe dilike Toms hardware] wanted their 5 minutes of fame, its the typical twitter Cancel culture of mob mentality.And just because we frequent or moderate the forum does not make it "our" website. Editorial does it's thing. We do our thing. The two "things" don't always, and often don't, jive. Case in point, the "just buy it" article. I assure you, nobody here was in favor of THAT little tidbit. But that's history at this point.
You can have your opinion. I'll stick to mine, thanks. No way in the world, ever, that I'd trust an Adata device over a Samsung drive. But you can if you wish to. And personally, I won't even look at Corsair storage devices. I've had two Corsair SSDs die early in the past and there won't be a third time.
