    Wow, 13% off voucher at Amazon.co.uk for that Sabrent 1TB drive I bought: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/s?k=sabrent+rocket+1tb&crid=3GUNQK3JVF62T&sprefix=Sabrent+Rocket,aps,128&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_4_14

    Worth getting!

    Ah, missed your post from a few days ago. Here's the results (32GiB, 16GiB, 8GiB, 1GiB):
    CrystalDiskMark 32GiB.jpg CrystalDiskMark 16GiB.jpg CrystalDiskMark 8GiB.jpg CrystalDiskMark 1GiB.jpg
    It slows down on the 16GiB and 32GiB tests for some of the write portions, but 16GiB is able to maintain the 3000MB/s sequential, but a drop seen on "the next variable down". 32GiB test sees a reduction in Writes on both the top two variables. 8GiB is just as fast as 1GiB, no reductions seen.

    How does 970Evo and 970Pro stack up against this? I've not seen any 32GiB/16GiB tests on those drives, all I can find is the default 1GiB tests?

    The Corsair MP510 uses the same NAND and Phison E12 controller. Similar (~£126) prices (without discount) but the 2TB MP510 is much cheaper (~£260) than the Sabrent. So if buying a 2TB drive look at that one for U.K. buyers.

    Yep, the 2TB MP510 is cheaper, but not the 1TB version. 1TB version of the Rocket is cheaper than the 1TB MP510, and then you've got the 13% off voucher on top of that, so quite a difference for that one.

    Trying to help family member with laptop build...which is more worth it to get for the NVMe drive, a 500GB WD Black or 250GB Samsung 970 Evo Plus? It's $10 more for the Samsung drive. From what I can tell, it's probably safer to go with Samsung...I haven't found anyone saying their drive has failed. I have read people complain that their WD "broke." Otherwise, the benchmarks look very similar. Side note: The OS is going to be on this drive.

    From my experience with the WD Black, it is the battery drain that hurts (all test units returned). The 970 Evo Plus (but splurge for bigger capacity, if possible). :)

    I haven’t seen many bring smaller drives over on new computers(upgrades). Hence I buy biggest possible when I purchase.

    Detailed SSD reviews point to the same regarding WD drives, it’s got great performance but the firmware needs overhaul as there are issues with the drive not going into lower power modes. That’s why I would only recommend them for desktops. As for reliability it’s not going to be any worse.

    When dealing with less tech savvy people, I agree he might be better if sticking to name brands even though some third parties like Corsair produce decent drives with good NAND and controllers.

    @Papusan The price difference is $55, but we're already pushing his budget. We're also getting a 500GB 2.5" Samsung 860 EVO.

    @tilleroftheearth @Aivxtla Good to know. That was my concern...so it seems it's better to go with Samsung. Are there any lesser known brands with pretty great drives? Might be an option for a larger drive. o_O

    Edit: Sorry, I missed the Corsair comment. :oops:
