Samsung 970 EVO Plus review: Samsung’s entry-level NVMe SSD is faster and cheaper

The drive is faster, so given the same price, definitely go for the EVO Plus. Or of course the 970 Pro, which, while considerably more expensive, suffers no performance drop-off during long writes. One thing to note about the performance is that 3-bit NAND, when written natively as such (it can be treated as 1-bit or 2-bit NAND with a corresponding increase in performance), isn’t all that fast

Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB, 2TB SSDs Hit All-Time Low Prices

One of the best NVMe SSDs on the market, the Samsung 970 EVO Plus provides excellent performance whether you're copying files, loading game levels or opening your favorite apps. It's significantly faster than budget drives like the Intel 660p or WD Blue SN550 while still being much more affordable than high-end, PCIe 4.0 drives like the Samsung 980 Pro

The Samsung 970 EVO Plus (250GB, 1TB) NVMe SSD Review: 92-Layer 3D NAND

0 support. Until then, the 970 EVO Plus takes over the performance flagship position for Samsung's retail/consumer product line and the 970 PRO is only relevant for workloads that involve sustained writes of hundreds of GB per day. For workloads that merely consist of tens of GB per day or include some disk idle time for the SLC cache to recover, the 970 EVO Plus is now likely to offer both better performance and better pricing than the 970 PRO

Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus Review

And Samsung managed to make some improvements on this front. The SSD 970 EVO Plus is just $129 for the 500GB drive we tested, which is slightly cheaper than the SSD 970 EVO and hits the 25-cent-per-gigabyte mark almost on the nose.

SAMSUNG 970 EVO Plus 500GB M.2 NVMe SSD Review -

ConclusionAll in all, SAMSUNG 970 Evo Plus is a beastly product while it comes with a surprisingly compact form factor of M.2 2280. The performance of the SSD is great for even the most disk-intensive tasks and with a 500GB of drive, the life of the disk is substantially great at 300 TBW

Wow - not just benchmark good, but really GOOD!

All I can say is wow! I returned an ADATA XPG SX8200 PRO 500GB for this one and am so glad I did. All PCIE NVME drives are not created equal and benchmark's don't mean anything because they are synthetic and the drives are built to show the "best" performance on the benchmarks, which can be a far cr...
