Folks, I don't write reviews unless I'm really impressed, or put out. You already know which way this is going.
Not much needs to be said. We buy NVME drives for speed, plain and simple. If I wanted massive disk space, I'd shell out $100 for a cool 4TB of plattered goodness. But prior to this, I was running a SATA SSD which was nice, but actually became a bottleneck while gaming / multitasking.
Enter the Crucial 500GB NVME. Looks great on paper, right? Yea I thought so too, and shelled out my hard earned (yea we don't really have surplus $$$ these days) with the expectation that throughput would jump, per their advertised speeds.
Please note I wasn't expecting the world. 2400MB reads would have been nice, but not necessary. Well, as you can see from my llil graphic there, max speeds it ain't. Yes, I re-ran the test several times, while the system was otherwise unloaded. FYI this is on a newly installed Windows 10 Pro system with an i3-9100 and 32GB of memory.
So yea, I'm sad. Not really worth the time / money to return it, since Amazon now requires that we go out into public during a global pandemic to hand off the faulty item. And like I said, it is faster than my former SATA. But absolutely not by enough to justify the expenditure :(
Happy holidays? I think not.
Edit: RE vendor reply. Guys, it was nice of you to reply via automated bot, but per usual it misses the entire point of my review. This is a NEW drive, with NEW Windows 10 install. There's no garbage to be collected, nor any sign that trim isn't functioning as expected. If you'd done the right and proper thing by sending me a replacement unit, at a minimum to tell if it was my setup or the drive, I could bump this up to a 3 (if same issue) or 5 if speeds improved. But instead you gave me the new car equivalent of - have you checked the Johnson rod? There's no sign of malfunction, but it couldn't be an issue with what we just sold you so, yea go troubleshoot, or something. Thanks?
