    I am so frustrated! I am having to replace my Samsung EVO 850 500GB after only 14 months of use (literally only running The Sims 4). This thing decided one day to get stuck in a boot loop and even erasing and reinstalling windows about 10 billion times with 2 different PCs has made no difference! BIOS is too old to update so I will be upgrading but I have a 15 year old HDD which is still running well, although painfully slow. I have no idea which SSD I will pick as I was under the impression this 850 was the best at the time of purchase yet I can’t even get 2 years out of it. Worst $200 I’ve spent on my PC gear.

      ​@Casey Lane Tried both WD's RED and Seagates IronWolf. Both dying within 18months. At best 2 years.
      The SSD on the NAS aint complaining.
      re "Lifespan". It is true, data on HDDs will last longer than data stored on SSDs.
      This is true if HDDs are not in use. But when in use, HDDs will mechanically fail far earlier than SSDs losing memory/data.

    I now prefer the 2.5" form factor. i have installed two m.2 drives both 512GB in size, one 2280 and the other 2240. They both have very high heat factors. The heat will not ruin the drive, but it does reduce the performance of the drive to avoid ruining the drive.

      @Jim Derringer My PC boots in 2 seconds with a read of 3301 and a write of 2409 and that's actual speed in my work PC which is more than half full because I have to dual boot for work with a 5 year unlimited or 600tb warranty what was that WD warranty oh that's right it's a limited warranty with half the writes. Also, here's a direct comparison between the two But hey, if you're looking for a "budget" nvme drive you could do a lot worse than the WD black.

    • Jim Derringer

      More expensive than the WD black, gives you 100 more mb read (they always BS the write), and can't be bought with a built in heat sink (WD Black has this)

    I built a gaming pc five years ago, it had two spinning HHDs and one SSD, the SSD died one year later, in the five years scents I built the system I have replaced dead SSDs 5 times,
    In five years I've had five SSDs all of then died ather one year, the two spinning hard drives are still spinning happily along, What happened, why did five SSDs die??!!

    • Sam Moss
      Sam Moss 25 days ago

      don't know that answer but I have a very similar setup along the same timeline...120GB SSD for the OS and several 1TB for storage and my EVO died within 3 months, sent it back to Samsung, an the refurb they sent back has been going for 5 yrs....the spin drives (HDD's) are still chugging along but are starting to show their guess would be on the electrical end of the connections to the SSD's..something is surging those drives to kill them like that. I ran the 'Optimization' utility that comes with Samsung an it sets aside 11GB as a safe barrier and I only run the OS on the SSD no other programs or whatever and it has been around me the less the better for wear & tear.

    So you talk about how you prefer 2.5" because you don't have to remove like your graphic card to swap SSD, and you list in the cons of the 2.5" drive the cables. But you don't talk about M.2 not needing any cable which is the main pros of it ?

    Even the cheapest SSD is light years faster than the old hard drives. Beyond that, it seems like overkill. Cheap SSDs boot in 15+ seconds. Why pay big money to boot in 5-10 seconds? We're talking seconds here. Not minutes... like hard drives.

    • bluescluessuperagent
      bluescluessuperagent Month ago

      as the other guy said, you don't use a 128gb ssd for storage or the only hard drive in your computer
      you use it as a boot drive, as in you install your operating system on there
      thus you get fast boot up and fast application launching and just overall fast windows experience (or whatever OS) and you keep a 2nd hard drive for storage

      When I build and sell pcs, I normally always use a 120gb ssd as the boot drive, then a 1000gb mechanical hdd as the storage drive

      When Do You Pay Off Your Credit Card Bill? Pros and Cons of Paying Early vs. On Due Date, Setting Up Autopay [EXPIRED] Anya Kartashova August 15, 2018 Anya Kartashova (Offers on this page are now expired and are no longer available.) When it comes to managing credit cards, we all have a preferred method. It goes without saying that to be successful in this hobby, you must pay off your balance in full before the due date, but the exact time and frequency of payments varies person to person. Some pay before the statement closes, and others wait until the last minute of the due date. So, let’s go over some of the pros and cons of each card management style. Make Sure to Pay Your Bills On Time Credit card payment history contributes to a huge chunk of your overall credit score, or a whopping 35 percent to be specific, so it’s important to make all payments before their due dates. And I’m not talking about making a minimum payment. Technically, sending a check for the minimum balance due will contribute to the payment history in a positive way, but you’ll end up paying interest on the remaining balance. Rewards credit cards tend to carry especially high interest rates, therefore paying just the minimum amount will negate all your rewards and is not recommended. Pros: Not paying interest Cons: None Paying Off Balance Before the Statement Closes Consumers who use this method tend to stay on the cautious side and pay off their balance before the statement closes, sometimes multiple times per month. Although you won’t owe any interest on your card, which is the goal, you also won’t accumulate positive payment history. If the statement closes at $0, you technically owe nothing and the payment is not recorded by the credit bureaus, which get their information from lenders. If you prefer paying off as much of your bill as possible in advance, it’s best to carry a small balance that is reported to the bureaus along with a full payment shortly after a statement closes. This will help you establish payment history, keep your credit utilization low and increase your score. Pros: Keeping credit utilization rate low Cons: No record of payment history Cycling Your Credit Sometimes lenders are fearful of offering a high credit line, especially to consumers with a thin credit file. If you apply for your first or second credit card, your credit line might be on the lower side. Let’s say it is $1,000, and you need to make multiple expensive purchases. If your first purchase is $800, you are now using 80 percent of your credit limit, which implies high risk. To appear in control of your finances, you want to keep your credit utilization rate under 30 percent if possible. So, you can pay off the $800 before the statement closes and then use your card again to make another purchase. Doing this multiple times per month is called cycling your credit. You want to use this method if your credit line is low but you are 100 percent you can pay off your purchases in full right away. Just be careful and don’t let the statement close with a large purchase on your bill. This will increase your credit utilization rate and temporarily lower your credit score. Pros: Keeping credit utilization rate low Cons: Risk of not paying in full before statement closes Paying Off Balance on Due Date Some people like to hoard their money until the last day of the grace period. You may call it procrastination, but others call it investing. If you have money in a high-yield checking account, it might make sense to keep the money there for as long as possible to accrue a higher return. Of course, this only makes sense for accounts with high balances. You also need to be careful with your utilization rates. Racking up a huge credit card bill isn’t worth a credit score drop for a few extra bucks in your checking account. Pros: Investing money elsewhere Cons: High credit utilization rate Setting Up Autopay for Credit Card Bills This option really varies person to person. With different due dates, bonus categories and annual fees on each card, it can get rather overwhelming to keep track of everything. Setting up autopay for your bills can eliminate lots of stress, especially if you hold multiple rewards credit cards, but it also can backfire. For example, if someone makes a fraudulent charge on your credit card and you don’t notice right away, the autopay might pay for something you didn’t buy. In my opinion, it’s easier to not pay for it in the first place than to jump though hoops trying to your money back after the fact. Not to mention the possibility of not having enough money in your checking account to cover the bill. Then you have to deal with overdraft charges from your financial institution. Pros: Easy bill managing Cons: Potential complications with fraud How I Manage My Credit Card Bills Now, after all of this, you might be wondering how I manage my credit card bills. I pay off every card in full the day I receive an email letting me know my statement is available. This way I don’t miss any payments, and everything gets reported to the credit bureaus. I pay everything manually and have not set up autopay on any of my cards for the fear of overdraft charges, just in case. This way I also can choose a checking account for that specific payment. I’m curious. How do you manage your credit card bills? Please share your methods in the comment section below.

    Great video over all, well explained.
    Have question, how would nvme x4 perform when plugged into x2 port. would it be half the speed, or would it retain more than half?? it's actually crucial factor because some x4 models are cheaper than x2 models up to $40 considering 1TB (offers and sales), and therefore a customer would buy high speed x4 instead of low speed x2 and plug into x2 port for the same performance.

    I've had an 850 EVO for a while now and my boot times are already 6- 7s (desktop) on my laptop it's 1.8 - 2s- during school it'd be a running joke all I'd have to do is click the power button and I'm at the desktop whilst everyone else was still loading (everyone was given the same laptop but I took the liberty to modify mine as it would soon be handed off to my mom). Most people don't realize that you've often times got either unimportant or unnecessary services/apps that slow you down. You can go into your task manager > Startup. Chief among these offenders can be things like Microsoft OneDrive, ItunesHelper, Steam, Dashlane, Backblaze, Logitech gaming (or other peripheral apps). If you disable them you have nothing to lose. Because, if you need (say) to access your onedrive, what do you normally do? Open it. Thus why have additional things running and slowing you down when you can either stop them or have them start delayed.

    Also, simply because you disable it, doesn't mean it's not going to work. For example- in my scenario I have a G502 and K70 RGB keyboard. The profiles, macros, etc everything functions the same and you can see in the system tray that they indeed are working as normal, EXCEPT this time they aren't adding further delay for me to get into my desktop upon boot.

    The only thing(s) I wouldn't mess with are applications directly related to hardware that's responsible for the OS. Like Samsung RAPID mode. I leave it on but it's only 14ms.. Which is not only nothing but also a good measurement to see how everything else you have in relation stacks up. Another personal example is if I enabled ICUE (corsair's app) it's startup is roughly 18,000+ms. Significantly higher, now multiply that by whatever other things you've got going on you may not have been aware of! It can cut down a 15sec boot in half. Sure, it's just seconds. But hey for those interested I figured it was worth mentioning for the sake of discussion. :) Also I know I can't be the only one who likes to make tweaks here and there that are handy .

    I guess we are skipping SAS SSD drives and 1.8" drives? I assume you are focused on consumer and prosumer versus server and data center. Those PCIe slot cards are for bigger storage in the 4TB to 12TB up to 20TB per card but that is for servers usually. Are you going to do a followup to inlcude SLC, MLC and TLC FLASH storage that goes into these drives?

  • Tim Leitzke
    Tim Leitzke 2 months ago

    It is only confusing because you are calling it "1 key... 2 keys", when it is "B key", "M key" and "B+M Key". Also, PCI-E can reach far faster speeds of even now using x16 lanes.

    4 sata solid state drives in raid 0 are faster than 1 drive , or m.2 chip.
    You can get around 2gb/s read and write. Best to buy the same brand drives, and same storage size.
    Bought 4 250gig kingstons. And got 968 gigs of storage.

      @Thrift Pup yeah most of the issues I was made aware of were back in the first days of RAID. But...have seen newer systems go belly up too. I plan on my next build to go with the newer NVMe for boot and SSD's for storage..that's fast enough for me...your set up sounds like you may do a lot of video editing or things that require a lot of just may like the way it pops.

      @Sam Moss Dont use cheap controllers from amazon and problem solved. I have 5 Dell Poweredge R720s. Server 1 is in Raid 1, Server 2 is in Raid 10, Server 3 is also Raid 10, They have been running strong for 5 years solid. Server 1 is my Firewall, Router, DNS, Proxy & Cache server for my network, Server 2 & 3 are virtual machine servers holding various types of virtual servers, web servers, app servers, software testings, etc.
      The horror stories you get are from those who are penny hoarders purchasing cheap equipment. If you get the right parts, and also write your drive allocations, creating an raid drive tree written on a piece of paper, save that paper in case of raid controller failure you wont have problems then.
      Trust me as i tell you this with confidence, 1 drive can fail much quicker than using Raid whether being Raid 1 or Raid 0,
      As the Operating system you use will most likely talk to the Raid controller, that controller will have swap memory to be able to transmit data store read / write cache and 15% of the time not even retrieve any data after loading from the hard drives unless saving, modifying, adding, or deleting data.

      if speed is that essential the RAIDing SSD's may be a good idea but to me it is always better to go with one big drive and take RAID out of the mix, too many horror stories of a RAID drives going belly up (even RAID 0) leaving you with a broken computer and all the hassle of setting it back up again.

      Paying off your ‘closing balance’
      If you can afford it, you should pay off the closing balance in full by your statement’s due date. This is the total amount you owe for that statement period, including interest and purchases. If you pay your closing balance in full by the due date, not only do you not pay interest on the purchases you made that month, it also gives you interest-free days for purchases you make in the next month (as long as you continue to pay the full closing balance each month).
      But, we understand that paying off the closing balance mightn’t be possible. So, your next option should be to pay off as much as you can above your minimum monthly payment. We’ll call it a ‘part payment’.

    If you choose SATA M.2 make sure your board supports that + your sata ports. My SATA M.2 knocked out 3 SATA ports just for the smaller size. Not even a speed boost, just disabled 3 SATAs.

    I would have to disagree with your logic of "priced cheaper" as a 1tb SSD is still way more expensive than that of a 1TB hard disk drive!! And above that you can literally buy a 4tb hard drive for what a 1.5tb SSD costs, thus giving you A LOT MORE storage room!!

    Another Great vid, but I'm slightly confused like can i use a Nvme SSD on a M2 slot on the motherboard? Which is usually below the CPU and above the Graphics Card PCIE Slot?
    Or the Nvme has a different slot than M2 SSD?

    The best thing about SSD is it's high random access speed. Even if it has only hard drive's speed, the high random access speed will make the boot time much faster.
