    A review of Adata SX8000 NVMe-Tom's hardware.com But read from the final analysis. @tilleroftheearth @Phoenix ++++

    "There are rumors that Toshiba is actively courting Apple to buy into the profitable NAND division, so we should be worried about the future. If Apple takes all of the Toshiba's NAND, like it already does with BiCS, that leaves us without access to a viable alternative to Samsung for high-performance MLC. There isn't anything wrong with Samsung SSDs, but the company isn't known for keeping prices low just to benefit consumers. We need companies like Adata to balance the market, but we've lost that balance over the last eighteen months (when IMFT pushed 3D)."

    I read that review almost as soon as it was published online...

    Still haven't met an NVMe SSD that is worth wasting real $$$$$ on... (over a platform that is powered by a decent or better 2.5" SSD).

    But they are small. Aka the ODM could make their notebook models both smaller, thinner and with other use of the internal space!!
