    We review the TeamGroup PD1000 Portable SSD (512GB). This is among the fastest portable storage to date as it is SSD based, combined with the DNA of NMVe it can reach 1000 MB/sec over USB 3.2 Gen2, no...

    Yes, it is fast, but, when it comes to portable storage, the key element always was and always will be - capacity. For today's standards, half a terabyte/one terabyte is too small, and, of course, such performance coupled with 2TB/3TB would have been way too expensive. And nowadays, 1TB USB flash-pen drives are obtainable at sub-50$ price tag (yeah, slower, but, on the other hand - smaller, thus more portable)...

    Another great review @Hilbert Hagedoorn.

    Something to look at it if I have the need for speed on portable storage. Again as stated previously it's a bit short in the actual storage department.

    Just bought me four of these beautiful babies (SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB) to put into my AIC in a raid 0. They'll be here tomorrow...

    Looking forward to the review.

    Wanted to get the 2Tb version, but being sold out kind of hinders that chance. This way it's a bit softer on the old pocket book... 8Tb sounds so much better than four though.

    These drives with a five year warranty are going to get their works worth that is for sure. Hella scratch disk is going to be in effect. 3Tb raid 0 WD ssd, 2Tb HDD, 2Tb M.2, 6 500Gb HDD's and now four m.2 NVME in a raid 0 for 4Tb more!!

    Edit: Now I just have to install my OS once more on my ThreadRipper system as I got "dumb" during install of aforementioned AIC and dumped my OS in the process.

    Anyone ever mess with gigabytes raid settings in their BIOS!?!? WHOA what an experience!!

    Aida64 gives it 12.6GB/s read and 18.4GB/s write. Buffered of course. had the OS on it in and it didn't fare as well. There are so many loopholes to still work around with windows and how it "doesn't" recognize raid setups without added drivers to this day!

    Not to mention one needs to "delete" the raid (with Gigabyte boards) before one can truly enable/recognize said raid configuration. Build or buy on youtube has a great rundown of what this is all about and how to circumvent it all, but I prefer a fresh OS install myself. As opposed to having to change all kinds of settings in windows afterwards.

    When I made the raid I didn't have caching enabled, so maybe I can mess with it again and see about caching or not for good.

    Such great technology we have today!!
