    I bought this for my PS5.

    I’m currently using the (PS5) beta firmware and one of the enabled features was the activation of the m.2 port. I wasn’t lacking in available space as there is not a real lot of ps5 games released that actually interest me, I was getting by with my 4tb external drive and the stupidly small amount of internal SSD space on the console itself but I figured I would go ahead and buy a drive anyway.

    Sony recommend you attach a heatsink to your nvme drive if it doesn’t come with one as standard,

    After looking at factory heatsink nvme drives specifically the WD-Black SN850 1tb, it became apparent you pay a heafty price on top for the heatsink, At the time of writing it was £150 for the 1tb WD black and £235 for the same drive with a heatsink attached, probably hiked in price due to a Sony guy tweeting it was his drive of choice.

    Anyway I decided to buy the 980-pro (this drive). It was marginally more than the SN850 and I’m presuming other people were showing interest…

    Do read this before buying and do not forget to thank me if I helped you.

    The 980 Pro is (one of) the fastest drive you can buy right now with Gen4. That being said, this does not apply to the 250GB version. Especially the write speed are way worse than many cheaper Gen3 drives. 4800 for read (68% of advertised speed) and SHOCKINGLY low write speed of 593 (12% of advertised speeds)

    After a thorough research I found out that benchmarks are done on 1TB + versions.

    Confirmed by ordering a 1TB drive and testing that, that works almost as promised (93% of 7000+ read and 5000+ write), I can settle for that.

    See the benchmark results in pictures and go buy the 1TB version (or start saving for it).

    It took me 30 minutes to install this tiny thing, update its firmware, copy my filled up C: to it, flip drives over, and hey presto my filled up 120GB C: is now a 500GB C: The free Samsung software made this all possible – absolutely brilliant!

    The software doesn’t come with it. You need to search for “Samsung Magician” and download that – that updated the firmware to the latest version in seconds. No need to mess with the Samsung “Firmware Update Utility” which I’d downloaded just in case.

    Then download “Samsung Data Migration” app – this copies your old C: (all of it – not just Windows) to the shiny new drive. My 100GB took about 15 minutes to copy. I created a “Windows Recovery Drive” while I was at it (USB “emergency” disk), using the Windows tool, not the Samsung app.

    Each step (firmware + migration) shuts down Windows so you need to power PC back up. A “cold start” is always best to properly reset plugged in hardware.

    After the data migration I had 2 drives with identical drives…

    Installed this in my PS5 following the latest PS5 firmware update to unlock the NVMe slot, have moved games onto the drive and they appear to run as well as they do on the PS5 internal SSD. When formatting the drive, the PS5 rates the speed of this drive at around 5500 mbs, after some research online it appears that this is due to the SSD needs to be unlocked using Samsung’s magician software to get the full 7000 mbs (rapid mode). Happy with the current speeds provided but hopefully Sony/Samsung will provide an option to update the firmware to the advertised 7000 mbs speeds using the PS5 that does not require a reformat.

    Speeds as advertised, 980pro vs 970 evo plus on pictures, to be fair 970 is almost full and run in the rig for a while. 980 pro on PCI 4.0 and ryzen 3700x gets your pc on another level. Great service from Amazon
