Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

X25-M brought NAND flash memory  - PCSTATS.com X25-M brought NAND flash memory
Thu, Mar 15 2018 | 3:58PM | Filed under: Hard Drives/SSD| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

"While I'm thrilled to see a higher capacity M.2 Optane SSD come from Intel, there are many compromises to consider before running out and buying an SSD 800P. First is the interface, which is limited to half the PCIe lanes of most other modern SSDs. Then we have the capacity - a lot of folks who desire a super responsive SSD would also very likely be cramped with only 118GB of space. Lastly, we have the price. Unless the M.2 form factor was specifically required, power users would be far better off opting for the 900P as it offers higher performance and capacities at a much lower cost/GB. In light of all of these gotchas, the 800P becomes a great performing product that only fits a very specialized/niche set of practical applications. At the listed price, there are just too many competitive options out there (even from Intel). That said, the 800P is the highest capacity 3D XPoint you can get in an M.2 form factor to date, so if that's your need/use case, then have at it!"
