Samsung 980 PRO Internal SSD Reviews

Works Great

By Richard
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-02-01

Purchased this to upgrade my HP ProBook laptop which only has a 3.0 interface so I could have saved a few bucks with the 970 Plus at the same speed. Still, it's a great drive and with the Samsung Magician software, it only takes a few minutes to clone a duplicate backup to another 2TB M.2 drive.

A solid go-to

I use Samsung M.2s in almost all of my builds, and the 990 series being released and helping bring the price on the 980s finally got me to open my pocketbook for this one on my newest machine. The heatsink version of the 980 series just looks better than the 990 series heatsink version, also - more understated and cleaner lines. And, of course, quality storage.

An easy install

By Larry

Date: 2023-01-30

I bought this as I was having errors on my system. I have a 1TB off brand system drive already installed by the builder as well as a 2TB HDD RAID array that was actually a part of my system problem. After adding the 980 PRO the system was much faster. I've since deleted the RAID array and reformatted both drives and just using it for backups. The 1TB SSD is still installed as a backup system since it works fine. The 980 PRO is way faster all around. The install was painless even for my 70 year old brain. I love Samsung and have the 850 500GB SSD on my old HP laptop that I used for swimming pool design before retirement and it is really fast. Great products.

Asked by: Josh
Although the interface type is correct, SSDs with heatsinks are more suited to desktop computers. Laptop manufacturers unfortunately do not provide a spec on the amount of clearance inside the chassis, but in most cases the heatsink will be too large to fit.
