Never thought I would say my SSD was my bottle neck. But transfering files from the SSD to M.2 is crazy fast 480M/Bs (again limited by the SSD). I would recommend getting 2
Excellent value, a bit slower than the 970 Evo Plus, but as for a static data drive it's still significantly faster than standard SSD or mech HDD.
This drive's write speeds and random read speeds degrade as it fills. Large file copies from another drive (mechanical or SSD) will slow down after the SLC cache is full. It’s kind of like having a whole terabyte of circa-2010 MLC. On the other hand, this drive is large enough to be the only storage device in my system. I've completely removed SATA, AHCI, and mechanical drives, which I think is kind of cool.
