OUT OF STOCK ITEMS
Unfortunately items listed as IN STOCK when added to a BASKET can be OUT OF STOCK by the time CHECKOUT is completed. There are a number of reasons why this happens however the main reason is becasue the stock update is not realtime and happens only once every 60 minutes. It is not possible to have a live stock feed on a website in Ireland as this would substantially reduce the available products. Other causes can be when another customer includes the item in their order and checks out quicker. If an item is not available we will make contact as quickly as possible and offer alternatives including a prompt refund. Most OUT OF STOCK items return to stock within a few days so there is usually no need to notify the customer however if an item does not come back into stock within 10 days or goes END OF LIFE ( EOL ) we will ensure to make contact to find a solution as quickly as possible.

Is the Samsung 970 EVO Plus worth it? ›
With better performance, efficiency, and lower MSRPs, Samsung's 970 EVO Plus is a big "plus" in almost every way over its predecessor. It rivals its bigger brother, the 970 PRO, and comes with a complete software suite, making the Samsung 970 EVO Plus a great buy.
Overall, the 970 EVO Plus is one of the fastest SSDs we've tested, so it easily gains our recommendation. Though at press time, the 970 EVO didn't quite outpace the competition and make our best SSDs list, it's an excellent drive and very worthy of your consideration.Is the Samsung 970 EVO Plus better than then 980 SSD? ›
The 980 is significantly faster than the 970 EVO Plus in both random and sequential 1MiB blocksize workloads—but the increase doesn't really address users where the pain lives. When we move down to 4KiB workloads, there's little to choose from between any of these drives.Is Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD good for gaming? ›
Is 970 EVO Plus good for gaming? Absolutely. Any NVMe storage is extremely fast when compared to SATA-based storage, so your system as a whole will benefit from that. Obviously, a game needs not only fast storage but also fast CPU, memory and GPU to perform at it's best, but you can't go wrong with Samsung NVMe.What is the difference between Samsung 970 EVO and 970 EVO Plus? ›
The 970 EVO Plus reaches sequential read/write speeds up to 3,500/3,300 MB/s, up to 53% faster than the 970 EVO. The latest V-NAND—which brings greater NAND performance and higher power efficiency—along with optimized firmware, a proven in-house controller, and intelligent turbowrite boost.How long will a Samsung 970 EVO Plus last? ›
* Warrantied TBW for 970 EVO: 150 TBW for 250GB model, 300 TBW for 500GB model, 600 TBW for 1TB model, 1,200 TBW for 2TB model. * 5-years or TBW, whichever comes first.
The bottom line is that if you need a larger SSD and have an interface that supports it, switching to an NVMe SSD will give your system a handy, but not huge, performance boost. Since NVMe models are currently priced similarly to their SATA counterparts, you get that boost almost for free.How much faster is NVMe compared to SSD? ›
2.5" SATA SSDs
The 2.5” SSDs connect to the motherboard via SATA and transfer speeds max out around 500-600 MB/s. For comparison's sake, SSDs using NVMe technology have much higher bandwidth and max out around 7000-7500 MB/s transfer speed at the time this article was written, almost 12x as fast!
Since NVMe SSDs can reach higher speeds than SATA SSDs such as M. 2 drives, it makes them ideal for gaming or high-resolution video editing. Their high speeds come at a high cost, however: NVMe drives are some of the more expensive drives on the market.Which Samsung EVO SSD is best? ›
Samsung 870 EVO – Best SATA SSD
If you're looking to add some storage via a traditional 2.5-inch SATA drive rather than a tiny M.2 “gumstick,” Samsung's spectacular 870 EVO is your best bet. It's the fastest SATA SSD we've tested, it's available in up to 4TB of capacity, and it's exceedingly affordable given its speed.
Which NVMe SSD is better? ›
However, in conclusion, the Samsung 990 Pro ranks top of our best NVMe SSDs list. With its high performance, reliability, and affordability, the Samsung 990 Pro proves itself to be the clear winner. On the other hand, for users looking for unmatched speed and performance, the WD Black SN850X is a great option, as well.What is the difference between Samsung 970 Evo and Pro? ›
The 970 EVO differs from the Pro in that it uses 3-bit TLC V-NAND and features TurboWrite technology, like some previous generation EVO-series drives. TurboWrite essentially uses a small portion of the NAND as an SLC write buffer, which translates into improved write performance, as long as the buffer isn't exhausted.Is SSD or NVMe better for gaming? ›
In our testing, we found that upgrading to an SSD - even a budget model - reduced game load times by up to 60 per cent compared to even modern, high-performance HDDs, while NVMe SSDs reduced load times even further.Does NVMe SSD make a difference for gaming? ›
NVME allows games to boot up much faster (up to 2-3 times) than those on traditional drives. Your games will load faster on NVME and won't waste time moving from the menu to the game itself. If you are a gamer that plays online, you may notice that your game loads much faster than other players and less stuttering.Does NVMe SSD speed matter for gaming? ›
2/NVMe with PICe connectors are faster in booting PC and loading games than SATA SSD. However, there's no big difference when it comes to the gaming experience. Players can barely feel the slight changes.What is the fastest SSD for gaming? ›
The best SSD for gaming is the WD Black SN850X. Expect to pay $159.99-$699.99 USD / £153.99-£701.99 GBP.

2 SATA SSDs have a similar level of performance to mSATA cards, but M. 2 PCIe cards are notably faster. In addition, SATA SSDs have a maximum speed of 600 MB per second, while M. 2 PCIe cards can hit 4 GB per second.Is Samsung 970 EVO Plus compatible motherboards? ›
As long as your motherboard has an open M. 2 slot supports NVMe, it should work just fine.What is the lifespan of an NVMe SSD? ›
NVMes likewise weigh lighter than SATA SSDs and are more modest in size. The average lifespan of an NVMe SSD is 10 years.How long does Samsung EVO SSD last? ›
* 5 years or TBW (250 GB: 75 TBW; 500 GB/1 TB: 150 TBW, 2/4 TB: 300 TBW), whichever comes first.
Is 970 EVO the best SSD? ›
The Bottom Line
The Samsung SSD 970 EVO offers an excellent blend of throughput and performance, making it the best high-end internal M. 2 PCI Express SSD for most users.
Non-volatile Memory Express (NVMe) is a modern protocol built specifically for the PCI Express (PCIe) to transfer data to and from SSDs. Built on high-speed PCIe lanes, NVMe is an improvement over older Hard Disk Drive (HDD) and related interfaces such as SATA and SAS.Is there a noticeable difference between SSD and NVMe? ›
You can see a clear difference in performance when you use NVMe, with a read/write throughput far higher than the hard drives and slower SATA SSDs also lagging somewhat behind.What is the difference between NVMe and normal SSD? ›
NVMe versus SSD
SATA drives are the larger, 2.5-inch drives that most resemble classic laptop hard drives. NVMe or Non-Volatile Memory Host Express, on the other hand, is the logical interface specification that is used to access a computer's non-volatile storage media at high speeds.
While Solid-State Drives are ridiculously faster than traditional rotating platter hard drives, they dramatically slow down performance as you fill them up. The rule of thumb to keep SSDs at top speeds is never completely to fill them up.What is the difference between PCIe and NVMe? ›
Summary of the difference between PCIe and NVMe
The PCIe specification is maintained by the PCI Special Interest Group. NVMe, on the other hand, is an interface specification for communication with NAND flash and next-gen solid state drives, and functionally, it is based on the same protocols as SATA and SAS.
NVMe has roughly the equal bandwidth as DDR4 RAM but compared to RAM, its latency, or the speed at which you can access bits of data falls far short of RAM.What does NVMe stand for? ›
Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) is a new transfer protocol designed for solid-state memory. While SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) remains the industry standard for storage protocols, it wasn't built specifically for Flash storage like SSDs and can't offer the same advantages of NVMe.What is NVMe best used for? ›
NVMe is commonly used for solid-state storage, main memory, cache memory or backup memory. It provides an alternative to the Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) standard and the Advanced Technology Attachment (ATA) standard for connecting and transmitting data between a host system and a target storage device.Which is better SanDisk Ultra or Samsung Evo Plus? ›
