Critic Reviews


The Samsung 980 Pro is the NVMe SSD you want--if you're rocking PCIe 4 (Ryzen-exclusive as of this writing). For more common PCIe 3-equipped systems, it's still a great drive, but not significantly better than the lower-priced competition.


The sprint performance of the 980 Pro is fantastic, but current NAND technology has its limits for extended operations. With the need for specific PC hardware and the high cost per GB, this solution is only for those who aren’t budget constrained.
