    This is a comparison between Sandisk Ultra 3D NAND 500GB, ADATA SX8200 Pro 512GB on my onboard motherboard port (PCIE 2.0 4x), and SX8200 Pro on the PCIE 3.0 4x adapter card.

    There's a huge boost in sequential performance of the drive, so if you don't have a recent motherboard with PCIE 3.0 4x M.2 port, this adapter card is highly recommended.

    SSDs have gotten pretty cheap now, saw a 1TB at Thundermatch Mid Valley for around RM600 (forgot the brand)... Western Digital 1TB were going for below RM1000. Can't wait for 2TB to become readily available and commonplace...

    Even the decent Sandisk Ultra 3D SSD 1TB is just RM587 from Shopee. Excellent value IMO. WD Black is a good drive, but can't beat the ADATA for price, plus it also uses Micron NAND chips.

    My turn for SSD. Added an extra 1TB to my Thinkpad. Couple of brands that I could pick, decided to just get the WD Blue. It's just for data access/storage, no need for a high performance drive.

    Good choice for a budget NVMe drive. :thumb:

    Wow. Those SSD prices are dirt cheap.

    Got this myself recently. Going for S$187 on Qoo10 so I grabbed one. [​IMG]
