Edit your post or make a new one. @seagate_surfer: This is not an entry to participate in the giveaway, even though I sure would like to have one of these drives. Too bad my review sample has to sit in the box "reference SSDs saved for retesting in the future" :)

I need this because I am a prosumer that is trying to find out what is the best format for everyday use for my friends and customers. Is there an SSD that can rival an NVME drive in overall performance. Based on the review I would say this may fit the bill but does it?

because I don't have an ssd, I have a 500gb toshiba hdd, its useful life is about to end, it takes time to turn on the pc, it would be nice to have an ssd to replace it with my hdd, and see how it turns on in an instant. Even if I know that many want it, I wish the best to whoever wins it!

I'm sorry for my English
