HP 1TB NVMe EX920 M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 3D TLC NAND Internal SSD $306 AC



#5

I picked this up from the MP deal two weeks ago. The main query I’ve answered with regard to it is running temperature. Peers and benchmarking sites have had it up to the 57-59C range while the SM2262 controller is rated for a maximum/throttling temperature of 70C. I put a copper BGA ramsink on mine with some thermal tape – the same procedure I use on Raspberry Pi 3s – with no other cooling on the cache or flash; my maximum temperature through 1TBW has been 44C. Heatsinks like the EK-M.2 are made for single-sided drives, and this one is double-sided (and is thus thicker in general – caution for some mobile devices). Plenty of reviews out there for performance although it’s very similar to the Intel 760p and Adata XPG SX8200.

My quick personal review – it’s a very good drive especially for the price. I think you’ll see plenty of SM2262 drives in the second half of this year and prices will definitely come down. Nevertheless if you’re buying now, and now is not a bad time to buy compared to the last year and a half, this is a pretty solid choice. My only caveat is that it’s not exceptionally faster than any other SSD for most consumer workloads so make sure this is something you need.

How does this compare to the wd my passport line?

it’s inferior

Passport gives you 3 yrs warranty and drive encryption

Easystore is 2 yrs warranty and if you want encryption you’ll need to use 3rd party program

Passport is easily worth the extra money. in fact, it goes to $94.99 at Walmart frequently. Easystore 4TB for $5 more doesn’t make any sense

WD Black External Hard Drive 4TB My Book $59.99



#4

Beware. “Black” probably describes the color of the enclosure, not the WD HD model/line. I’d love to find a 4TB “black” WD disk for less than $160.

Update:
* Found a 1TB black drive for $90 at Target.com “WD Black” HDDs have 5 yr warranty. This is not a bad price for a WD-Black, IMHO.
* Found a 4TB WD Black External “My Passport” for $100 at Target.com. 2 yr warranty. The HDD inside is 5400rpm, so definitely **not** a “WD Black” HDD.
* Found another 4TB WD Black External “My Book” for $120. 2 yr warranty. 4200rpm, so definitely not a WD-Black drive either.

https://www.wdc.com/products/internal-storage/wd-black-desktop.html#WD4004FZWX($190) is a WD Black 4TB HDD. 7200rpm, 5 yr warranty. WD4005FZBX ($184) is another model with double the cache.

For my money, outside the SAS market, the WD-Black “Performance” line is the best HDD money can purchase. The 5yr warranty,7200rpm says that WD believes in them.
