Default Re: What brand ssd?

I’m mostly Crucial, but also have a couple of Samsung EVO 512 Gb. No issues with either so far. I just ordered parts for a new computer which includes a pair of Crucial P1 1Tb NVMe M.2 Drives. At $150 each I’ll see if they’re a good value or not. This PC will have 3Tb of SSD including a pair of Samsung EVO 512Gb and 13Tb of conventional 7200 RPM spinners.

Samsung Evo drives here as well.

There are several Youtube videos that show head to head tests between different brands and models.
