As a rule, I don’t like to benchmark SSD’s that much since it degrades the life expectancy (especially the 4K tests). Write amplification can be horrendous and gives inaccurate results. There are no truly well written bench marking programs that are designed from the ground up for SSD media.
Only time will tell over the long haul regarding the longevity of this blade, but the physical quality and heat generated under heavy use seem to be about the same as the industry leading Samsung SSDs. I did a lot of research and found that some of the other big name drives have serious problems with heat and throttling. This one had no negative issues reported at all that I could find, so I took and chance and I’m very satisfied.
For the time being, I fully recommend this SSD.
In fact, I may add another one or two to my High Point card as the storage demands required increase.
