Samsung 970 PRO Internal SSD Reviews
This is a very fast and reliable SSD!
Works like you want it to
I use this in my NAS as a Cache SSD and it does a fantastic job.
Hard to beat this one
Great speed, long life. What's not to like? I normally use Samsung Pro in critical applications.
My old OS was on a 512MB SSD. When researching replacements, I learned that the PRO version was rated for higher usage: such as C drives. That is probably why my old SSD was getting significant media related errors after 5 years of service. The transition was seamless. YouTube videos showed how to replace, clone and re partition to the latest Win10 requirements.
Not as fast as advertised.
I do not doubt the reliability of Samsung drives. I have purchased Samsungs SSD's for years but the speeds I was getting out these drives just weren't that great.
Read speeds great, slow write speeds.
i have an amd ace x570 based motherboard with a ryzen 3900x cpu. latest amd drivers and bios loaded, with samsung magician installed. in crystaldiskmark v8.0, my 980 pro shows seq1 r:6404/w:1262, rnd4k r:1177/w:1064. my 970 evo shows seq1 r:3275/w:2497, rnd4k r:1186/w:1163. while i see 2x the read speed of my 970, i am also seeing 1/2x the write speed of my 970. no real solution yet, from my searches. do your research before purchasing. i would recommend getting a 970 evo for now.
Yea, I KNOW...
That there is the new 980 out there, and it could be bought for less. So what! I like the MLC memory cells in this bad-boy better. These Samsung SSDs do not go bad as far as I know of personally. And they will out-live their sibling 980 ssds by a long ways!
i bought and installed a samsung 2tb 970 pro nvme ssd in my laptop. my laptop's fan is always running at maximum speed when the laptop is on. the temperature of the ssd was about 70 degree c. i wish samsung would include a heatsink for this sdd model.
