    Originally I was planning on picking up the 970 EVO but I had already purchased the 860 EVO 500GB a few months ago for the PS4 Pro. I don't use my PS4 Pro much now a days and I had the stock 1TB HDD that came with it collecting dust so I decided to use the EVO for my build to save money.

    Another big reason why I decided on not purchasing the 970 EVO is the performace in games. For games, you won't notice the difference from this vs. the new m.2 970 EVO NVMe hard drives. You can read reviews and search for youtube videos comparing the two and, at best, you may load a second or so faster with the 970 EVO.

    Pros:

    • Great value to performance ratio
    • For games, performance vs the 970 EVO is negligible.

    Cons:

    • Requires SATA cables (power and data) vs m.2 requiring no cables
    • Outside of games, performance is nothing close to the 970 EVO

    This is WAY faster than necessary, and it boots in about 10 seconds. It holds files pretty well.

    Can't beat it, honestly.

    Very quick! Used as a game drive so I have no idea how fast it boots but loads everything way quicker than a 7200RPM drive.

    Best non M.2 SSD out there. Love it.

    In the past I only had good experiences with Samsung SSDs and the 860 Evo is no exception.

    2 words: Value and dependability. Still blazing fast for most tasks in 2019, although may be eclipsed in a few years by programs that demand NVMe speeds.

    The same logic I used for picking my OS SSD applies here. I wanted something to store my media, but 500 GB of media storage space may seem way too small for a lot of people. I’m the type of person who doesn’t like to let things take up space if I have no intention of getting back to it – I clean up storage often and have a hard time using more than 250 GB.

    The 500GB Samsung houses a few of the main titles. Including: Siege, CS:GO, Fortnite, BO4, and a couple other smaller titles. All games perform flawlessly, and boot up quickly. Very happy with the $80 I spent for this.

    Fast, efficient and good value ( when on sale ) SSD, used these in the past and none have given me any issues.
