Adata SD600Q 480GB blue

One standout read speed result won’t be enough to bother the mighty T5, and we’d still recommend Samsung’s SSD if performance is paramount. The SD600Q still has plenty of appeal, however – speed discrepancies with the T5 are a lot easier to look past...

TeamGroup T-Force Cardea II

Bottom Line: TeamGroup's T-Force Cardea II is a brawny M.2 PCI Express SSD with a high durability rating and a showy heat sink born for windowed desktop-PC cases. It's a solid pick, but get the 1TB capacity to attain top performance.

Crucial P1

Nevertheless, the P1 represents outstanding value even at 500GB, and unless you’re in a line of work (or just have a hobby) that demands the very highest speeds at all times, it’s seriously worth a look.

WD Blue SN500

The Blue SN500 isn’t the fastest NVMe drive out there, but it’s certainly fast enough for the average user, and the price is right. At the capacities it’s available in, I recommend it over the Crucial P1, which suffers a severe slowdown on those rare...
