As someone who uses a dedicated SSD for most of my games, this was an excellent replacement for my aging 1TB Samsung 850 EVO in a time where games are seemingly only getting larger. With just 1TB of storage I found myself struggling to find room for the a lot of the games I wanted to play, namely GTAV and RDR2, so having 2TB definitely helps solve that.
Speed wise this SSD is a bit faster than my old one, but the most impressive thing to me is that it has twice the storage of my older SSD for half the cost it was new, which just shows how far prices have dropped since then.
So yes, this is a great SSD. Expensive compared to an HDD sure, but in my opinion the speed and mechanical reliability are worth the extra cost.
