Look for SSD 2TB

Recommended Posts

I'm setting up a second drive to run win10 on.  I'm going to do a dual boot for a while.

Looking at Seagate 

https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-BarraCuda-Internal-Solid-State/dp/B07T87W4CP/ref=sr_1_4?crid=15J0WOKG5T0PF&keywords=seagate+ssd+2tb+internal&qid=1579497906&sprefix=seagate+ssd+2tb+%2Caps%2C188&sr=8-4

and 

Samsung

Can't seem to find any data in read /  write speed for these.

My Barracudas will sustain 185-201 read/write combinations depending on the file size.

 

Or is there another 2TB  you would recommend?

( Putting this drive in an older i7 Studio Cat DAW)

 

Thanks,

They all use SATA III, which maxes out at around 500 MB/second. Seek times will be faster than on a HDD drive.

I have used this one with great results:

Samsung SSD 860 EVO 2TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD

I also use this one, for about double the price, which is even better in terms of specs and reviews:

Samsung 970 EVO SSD 2TB - M.2 NVMe

Thanks for the suggestions guys!  A lot of great choices here.  Got some more reading to do. Looking at warranty stuff too. 
 

Thanks,

Not sure just  guessing - 3,500MB/s and 2,500MB/s,  VS 500 It should make quite a difference if you got an extra 600 laying around!

Will that Samsung 970 EVO SSD 2TB - M.2 NVMe plug into a sata III connection on an older computer?

Coincidentally, I just read this article before seeing your post. Pay close attention to the heading 'What You Need to Get NVMe'

The Samsung has an excellent clone program that has worked flawless for me twice. I cloned the system drive those times.
