    I tested write speeds on a 970 2tb with writing 750gb, it only dropped down to 750-850mb write speeds. At the start it would write around 1.2gb/s.
    The 660p 2tb that I had would drop down to less than 100mb/s. I'm not saying the 660p's are bad but they would slow down much more. The 660p are pretty good drives for most people.

    Hey all. I will probably get a m.2 ssd now. It shows like 45gb free of 231gb at the moment. Feels strange because months ago it was like 47gb free... then went to like 20gb free then after the windows 1903 update, it went to like 43gb free... then 40gb free... but recently went to 45gb free? Anyone know how this happens?


    Im looking at amazon and it seems the samsung 970 evo ssd m.2 1tb is sold out now. But they have the 500gb available. The more i think of it... 500gb is probably more than enough right? Again 6 months ago, i had like 47gb free of 231gb free on my 2.5 inch samsung 250gb sata ssd. I used up maybe 7gb in 6 months at the most.

    What other legit sites besides amazon sell this samsung 970 evo ssd 1tb m.2?



    Thoughts on this one?

    samsung 860 evo ssd 1tb? But it seems to be sata which is slower than the one above?

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07822Z77M/ref=dp_cerb_3


    Or pay more for the samsung 970 evo plus 1tb m.2 ssd? Since they have this available?

    You're probably losing disk space with all the windows updates because windows is not deleting it's ability to roll back to the previous update. You can use disk clean up in windows to "Clean Up System Files" (click on that button in disk clean up) - that will probably give you Gigabytes of space back.

    @JRE84, you're good. :)

    It would only be better with a 1TB or larger drive. ;)

    What are you trying to accomplish with an SSD? If your a casual user who doesnt do anything in particular, go for a 660p/665p intel and save yourself money. If you do large write files at a time, SN750 if your friend and can sustain 1200 to 1500mb/s with 500gb+ files. If you want fastest for the famous q1t1, ex950 is it. 970 is the best for Overall but doesnt excel at anything in particular except support if thats want you really want.
