2TB M.2 PCI Drive-Samsung 980 Pro Review


This SSD is a huge step in the advancement of hard drives. It is extremely fast, holds 2TB of data, and lasts a long time. The SSD has a dynamic buffer, which is what allows it to go as fast as it does and last so long. It uses this SLC buffer to put it further ahead of the competition.  The specs are as follows:

  • Size: 2TB
  • M.2 2280 M Key 
  • Reads up to 7000 MB/s 
  • Writes up to 5100 MB/s 
  • It has a dynamic buffer, meaning it adjusts to the size based on workload. 
  • 1,200 TBW (Terabytes Written Before Failure)
  • 5 Year Limited Warranty
  • IOPS: 1 Million
  • TLC
  • Although it may not last as long, it makes up for it by having 2TB, which means overall you will likely not use as much. 
  • 7,000 MB/s Transfer Speed

This is a great buy if you are looking for something high speed and carrying a lot of data. Personally, I have always gone for Samsung hard drives, it just feels more compatible with everything in my computer. Not to mention a ton of other hard drive creators are terrible at customer service. Overall review: 10/10, a great buy for your PC (especially if you are going to be playing games, things load uber fast!)
