It's pretty good price for 2 TB Samsung NVME if you do need more storage now.

It's still the top tier consumer SSD, although it's PCIE 3.0.
And it's time-tested, not like the 980 Pro that has firmware issue.

It's no point of getting PCIE 4.0 SSD if you are using for gaming or basic work. There's no difference unless you are video editing 4K/8K footage or doing 3D rendering then it make sense to get PCIe 4.0.

PCIe 3.0 is more than enough for most people using primarily for gaming or office work

500G is $99.99. Is it a good price?

Good to know. Thanks.


This is a worst human being. First, this guy pulls a scam to get a freebie, and then later gives a negative feedback. The strangest thing of all this, there are 301 people found this fake feedbak helpful. Are people really this much gullible?

For what? I've been doing online business for years and have run into those kind of scammers several times. You don't know the half of the pain you go through when you run into these especially with higher priced goods.

Maybe they purchased it as a warehouse deal or from a third party? I can't think of a scenario where he received a printed color cutout of the SSD if it was brand new and sealed. I think that's why it's suspicious.

Gaming could see PCIe 4,0 adopted if the latest and greatest sees performance benefits however - so while its true now, once DirectX 12 Ultimate becomes more mainstream, could change this dramatically for gamers.

Mind you, gamers would need the latest and greatest everything to make it happen (shortages indicate they would get it), but Microsoft has said PCIe 3 is supported, we have yet to see if it gets better with PCIe 4.

PCIe 5.0 and those drives will be here before 4.0 becomes adopted in that sense.

If you don't need a gen 4 drive today, no point wasting money thinking about future proofing with the way prices are coming down.
