But then it wouldn't be any fun! :lol:

Mind you I don't have the Pro model, but I still love it. From what I saw of it, better than most desktop class SATA SSDs.

It's on my Xbox atm though, I may be recovering it or the other SSD once the XSX is out but I haven't figured out how I'm going to do things quite yet.
You are probably going to transfer it to the XSX, as you can play your games and saves from a XBOne drive.

It's at a relatively reasonable price here, I think I'll efetuada get one of them to help with my backups. :hoghappy:

Yeah, but I can also transfer most of the games to the XSX drive. I already have more SSDs than I need but not by much (since I keep some space open on any of them.)

I might pick up a 970 Pro soon, the last hurrah for MLC it seems.

It seems module makers will keep going until some crazy quantum effects start to happen, like spontaneous raid 0 between quantum locked modules : :hoghappy: :

Not too bad, a tad better than the 970 EVO 250GB but it's obviously the endurance you're paying for:

Nice.

Now I'm wondering if anyone is using NVMe 1.4 yet (haven't found any.)

So far it looks like the WD Blue SN550 might, but nothing else I've found so far.

I've got quite a growing collection of Samsung drives now:

1x 970 EVO 250GB NVMe
2x 970 EVO PLUS 250GB NVMe
1x 970 PRO 512GB NVMe
1x 860 EVO 1TB SATA
2x 860 EVO 250GB SATA

All of them still 100% drive health and no issues. :sweet:
