    I’d be more tempted to read this review if it wasn’t across 13 damn pages.

  • Robin Dickson

    View all pages.

  • Deplorable_Cubs_Fan

    How does it compare to Samsung’s 960 pro in 512gb and 1tb ssds? I’m simply too lazy to look for old 960 reviews.

  • NoOneWantstoWatchYouStream

    I would imagine that like you and myself, EVERYONE reading this review would like to know how it compares to the current champion, the Samsung 960 Pro, so I find it quite ridiculous that they wouldn’t include such a comparison.

    You do know there is an option to view all pages on one page, right?!

  • Deplorable_Cubs_Fan

    I guess I’m not the only lazy one and I don’t write reviews. Or is this actually a “preview”? It’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference these days.
