512GB NVMe PCIe Gen3x4 (I don't recommend)!
Reviewed in the United States on February 16, 2019
This is my first product from Silicon Power and i gotta tell you, horrible first impression! I have Samsung EVO 850 Sata III 250gb that performs better than this NVMe.
The read speed is great, got to 3100mb/s at max, but the write speed is just horrible, nothing close to what was advertised (Up to 3000mb/s). The Write Speed that i got was from 115mb/s to 1124mb/s.
When i installed windows on it it just took forever to complete, my sata ssd performed 50x faster. Once it finished installing windows i went to install drivers and apps and boy, that's when i got to my second issue, it would just take forever to install and when i look at taskmanager the NMVe was always at 100% usage at like 2mb/s write speed. I just don't get that. When i run a game, it also gets 100% usage, that doesn't even happen on my Sata SSD.
I've been with this NVMe for about a month now testing and seeing that it isn't an user issue but a hardware issue. Tested on my HP Pavilion Gaming laptop (15-cx0077wm) and my friends computer that has a Z390 motherboard / Core i5 9600k processor and got the same results.
Will be getting this NVMe replaced and see if it's faulty ssd or not. Meanwhile i don't recommend this NVMe!
