  1. Hi and many thanks for your reply. the cost of the PCIe SSD was already in the budget and have sufficient funds for covering up to €180 (+/-) expense. Cable is not an issue but if I can avoid passing two extra cable I am happier (personal preference that has no impact on final decision). I was just saying... The chosen Asus X99-A II motherboard has 1 x M.2 x4 Socket 3, with M Key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 storage devices support (Support PCIE SSD only). So, no Sata Interface here available. I tried to further document myself on the Internet and learned that PCIe is more geared toward projects involving handling of large data files and video editing where read/write is very frequent. For the rest is mostly identical, in response time, to a regular SSD. This new PC assembly has a decent GPU and CPU with already sufficient RAM. At present time it serves the use of live streaming but I am certain that sooner or later I will end up doing some video editing or graphic editing: this is my perception. This is my concluding thoughts: if I have to spend around €100 (+/-) for purchasing a decent SSD (I like Crucial MX300 despite that TLS NAND) or even a SanDisk why not spending a little extra money and get something that would at least equal current SSD preference but preserve me future enhancements? I would have agreed that between €100 and €400 (for a real good SSD PCIe NVMe) there is a huge gap but for only €81 more I am sure I will end up having invested my money in an SSD that will allow heterogeneous projects for this workstation. I am also happy to notice that even Microsoft is using this PCIe SSD (under the brand name of Toshiba - but identical to this OCZ) for their Surface 4. So, OCZ (RVD400-M22280-256G) M.2 256GB" is what I believe the prefferred decision to take. I am sure to have done not only a valid choice but also followed a valid thinking. I hope this thread will be useful to those users who might have the same/similar question. Thank you for your support...
  2. Hi, I am assembling a new workstation for streaming live video content on the Internet (no games) and am stuck with which SSD to purchase. I need a 250GB (not bigger size) disk and have a budget of no more than €180. I wish it to be with PCIe Gen. 3.0 x4 NVMe (if possibile) and I do not need storage performance but read spead performance, load programs fast...... Here is my hardware: MOBO: Asus ASUS X99-A II CPU: Intel I7-6800K (LGA2011-V3) RAM: Corsair Kit 16GB Vengeance LPX [CMK16GX4M4A2400C14B] GPU: GigaByte GV-N105TG1 GAMING-4GD CASE: Fractal Design - Define R5 Black ... ... ... I read some reviews on the Internet and what I learned is that TLC is slower than MLC NAND, that some SSD perform poor after few secs of data transfer dropping the write speed...... This is what I had in mind Inteface: PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 NMVe OCZ (RVD400-M22280-256G) M.2 256Gb [PCIe] = €183 WD (WDS256G1X0C) Black M.2 256GB [PCIe Gen3] = €145 CORSAIR (CSSD-F240GBMP500) Force MP 500 [PCIe] = €158 SATA-3 Interface CRUCIAL (CT275MX300SSD1) MX300 275GB [SATA] = €92 SanDisk (SDSSDHII-240G-G25) Ultra II 240GB [SATA] = €90 I read that WD Black seems to be a low budget SSD and is not souch a great choiche. OCZ seems to be really interesting and quite a decent purchase/compromize. Corsair is interesting too (I like the fact that has NLC NAND but only offers 3 years warranty). What to do? I wish to avoid, if I can, to install an internal SATA SSD with all cables... I was also told that for daily usage (not gaming or storage work) I will NOT notice any difference between a Sata or a PCIe. If this is 100% true then I guess the best would be to still stick with PCIe (I do not need more than 250GB). Thank you....
