Samsung 980 PRO Review. Worth It? Watch Before You Buy

This Samsung 980 PRO Review has a goal. Is it worth it and should you buy. After watching all the reviews out there, reading up on all the issues of the different NVMe drives, and seeing first hand experience the epic caching slow downs of the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus, I put this to Samsung 980 Pro to the test.

I compare the data from tests I ran this Samsung 980 Pro m.2 NVMe SSD with the Western Digital SN850 and the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus. As a bonus I also through a quick chat about the Samsung 970 Pro. I will make a specific video on that and comparing it to the Gen 4 drives.

Caching issues should not be present and we should be enjoying a great drive by the consistent go to drive producer I have always counted on.

Install and Testing WD Black SN850 NVME SSD 2TB First Impressions

WD SN850 NVEM Gen 4 SSD Drive fresh install and first impressions. This video walks us through the physical install and of course a few tests to see how this matches up with the Sabrent Rocket Plus NVME Gen 4 drive. The Western Digital has had to play catch up in this space and the last few years, although they had their ups and downs, seem to have hit it out of the park with their Black Series drives. My first impressions with some tests should give us a good direction before we start to really test this 2TB drive.
