This is pretty attractive. Way cheaper than the 970 EVO, and comparable in many everyday settings.

Its a really good drive. I have 2 of them in my threadripper build. Extremely similar to 970pro and better in some aspects.

The SX8200 doesn't seem to suffer from the limited buffer issue on the 970 EVO.

I do believe that the 970 EVO is faster in most settings except perhaps sustained writes more than 22GB (i.e. 970 EVO is better overall on performance). However, given current pricing, the SX8200 is clearly the better value.

Samsung is wearing out it's welcome with these good but otherwise over-priced solutions.

I just bought 970 evo 500gb for $229 a week ago in Canadacomputers. I would've gotten this instead. But I had had a problem with ADATA ssd 550 that's why I bought the 970 evo. It's kinda ironic. It's still a gear deal though.

He's right folks, no tax. This is the better deal. God bless Amazon's broken system.

May be a dumb question. Can I use it to upgrade Macbook (Late 2013, 2.4, 13")? Tried to search online quickly but still not confident enough to buy. I am sure, I need PCIe for MacBook though.

Any help is appreciated :)

It would require a NVMe 2280 port. If it's there, it should work, if not, then you're hooped.

The nice thing about Amazon is that you can buy it, try it, and return it if it's a no-go. But I'd refer to your manual before deciding to purchase.

Thanks. That helps. I have canceled my order for now. I need to research more.

How do you avoid the return shipping cost?

You may return any of the following items to Amazon.ca, for any reason, for a full refund (we'll also refund the return shipping cost, if the return is a result of our error or if the item qualifies for Free Returns) within 30 days of delivery of your shipment (including gifts)

from https://www.amazon.ca/gp/help/customer/ ... eId=915466
