    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 980 PRO is wonderful. This NVME drive can give you the maximum speed of NVME 4.0. I install this into my new system. It is a blazing SSD in the market. Running lots of graphics and data analysis is not a problem as the SSD has high-performance bandwidth capabilities and excellent cooling. I highly recommend this SSD to those who find a NVME 4.0 drive for their new or upgrading their old system. Pros: - Speed - Unlikely to ever fail - Warranty - Sampson magician Cons: - May run hot - make sure to cool it appropriately (probably not the best choice for hot laptop chassis) - Needs pcie 4.0 (again, excludes most laptops)

  • Fast SSD drive
    Reviewed by redtarget - November 30, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this 980 Pro SSD to upgrade the hard drive in my son PC. I figured it will be a big performance improvement since the drive in his PC was a Samsung 860 EVO SATA III and this one is PCIe 4.0 NVMe m2 drive. I cloned the Samsung 860 SSD and no problem encountered; Removed the old drive and installed the 980 Pro drive. I was impressed with the improved performance. Boot up time, opening applications, disk related activities were much faster. I ran a quick benchmark of the Samsung 860 and Samsung 980 Pro using CrystalDiskMark and the differences was 6-7 times faster. Since this computer doesn’t support PCIe 4.0, I imagine this 980 Pro SSD will perform even better with PCIe 4.0 interface. This drive is gear toward power users or gaming pc.

  • Initial Use Didn't Work As Planned
    Reviewed by TechAficionado1 - November 30, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I originally planned to use the drive in the PlayStation 5 however the PS5 isn't ready for internal drives yet. So I'm going to try to use an external enclosure and I'll report back on that endeavor. However, owning all the Samsung Pro drives since the 950 Pro I'm sure this 980 Pro is going to scream! Just as expected the 980 Pro performs even in an external enclosure. I currently use it as extended storage for my PS4 and PS5 and of course, it is dead silent and VERY fast! There is no competition for a Samsung 980 Pro.

  • All I can say is Wow. Best Drive
    Reviewed by DragonIvre - November 30, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] If you are a gamer or content creator, this drive is definitely yours. You will definitely get the maximum speed. This Samsung 980 Pro changed the game. The fact that this Samsung SSD 980 Pro is a TLC drive allows you to write much faster. The longest drive, I was looking for a drive that can handle what I’m doing and I finally found it. Installing the drive took less than 1 minute because I was building a new system and the motherboard was still out of the case. I would highly recommend

  • Amazing speed !
    Reviewed by mystermo31 - November 24, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Samsung 980 Pro NVMe SSD is the true next generation storage solution. I have been using some decent PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSDs, but when it is paired with my Ryzen 9 3900X and X570, this is a next leap forward in terms of speed; simply amazing performance. In my storage benchmark, it shows 6,708MB/s sequential read, and 4,874MB/s sequential write. So this is perfect option those who read and write big files from/to it. Only problem is that I could not find any games and software that can take full advantages of its raw speed. Well it's not Samsung 980 Pro SSD problem anyway. I highly recommend Samsung 980 Pro NVMe SSD for those who want to experience next generation PCIe 4.0 speed.
