The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

Solid-state drives (SSDs) are fast becoming the must-have PC components of 2010. Serving as primary storage space for high-end computers, SSD's super-fast transfer rates and near-instant accesses offer genuine advantages over traditional spindle-based magnetic drives.

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.

500GB Samsung 970 EVO Plus, M.2 (2280) PCIe 3.0 (x4), NVMe SSD, MLC V-NAND, 3500MB/s Read,3200MB/s Write, 480k/550k IOPS is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy hand grenade this is good. Probably the best upgrade I've made this year and I say that having upgraded to a Ryzen R9 3900x. I've been on SSD for a while but this Samsung NVMe is a whole step up. The speed it reads and writes at is incredible. The biggest difference I've found is in games on two fronts. Firstly it's made loading large save files that are stored locally noticeably faster. Secondly I had some lag/stuttering in games like Jedi fallen order despite my PC meeting recommended requirements. Switching to the Samsung 970 Evo plus as fixed that and the game runs smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working perfectly so far My old SSD from another brand stopped working which resulted in a lot of hassle. However, I bought the EVO SSD and so far have had no problems and it is running better than the old one. I recommend the EVO SSDs for anyone wanting to change from HDD. A little expensive but its expected for half a terabyte and the quality means it will last much longer than the cheaper ones (I hope!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are fast Until I bought these i had only ever used a Samsung Pro 850 256GB SSD restricted to SATA3 transfer speed. Wanted 1 x 1 TB but I thought to myself as the motherboard has 2 m.2 slots why not get 2 x 512GB and put them in RAID 0? Installed in seconds with screws included with motherboard, no power or data cables which is great for airflow and cable management. Initiated Intel Rapid Storage Technology in BIOS and created array within a minute, a quick reboot later and it was showing as one large drive. Surprisingly Windows 10 release 2004 didn't even need the RAID drivers to detect the drives and only took around 10 minutes to install. Performance, Windows 10 boots in less than 10 seconds without BIOS or Windows fast boot on. ATTO show max transfer rate on 128KB and above and some games load 10 times faster than a SATA3 SSD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Same price as SSD nearly. Needed a drive for Windows, this is overkill but isn’t much more expensive than an SSD. I doubt I’ll use it to it’s full potential tho. Dead easy to fit to mobo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job You're buying this because you've done your review. It's fast and good value but whether it's the best value to this date 2020, is questionable. I bought it because of brand power and known to deliver.

2280 in 22110 slot? the screw it's included?

on my motherboard I got 2 slots for 22110 and just 1 slot fir 2280, if I will buy 2 of this m.2 nvme ssd (2280) I can fix them in 22110 slots? also, the screw it's included or my motherboard should have some already? thank you!
Asked by: Madarrax
Hello, This particular M.2 will work in both slots, the 22110 standard shows the maximum length available in most cases. The screws will come with your motherboard pre-installed into the screw holes or inside the accessories pack. Kind Regards
