PNY XLR8 CS3030 2TB M.2 NVMe Internal Solid State Drive - Reviews
PNY XLR8 CS3030 2TB M.2 NVMe Internal Solid State Drive is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rick from Fantastic speed! I’ve been playing around for years with Apple RAID tech to stripe many disks together to get decent performance. With this, it’s as fast as my internal drive using a 40gb enclosure (sold separately). I have this on my 2020 iMac 27” using a thunderbolt 3 case and the speed is amazing. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by big daddy from Real bang for the buck / Great value Just replaced a small 128GB OEM ssd in a laptop with this 2TB model. Very good performance for reasonable money. Using crystal_disk_info the temps run 29C at idle and around 45C under burst loading (installing programs, etc.). It doesn't come with a fancy heat sink, so not sure what it will do with heavy loads. I have copied 5 and 10 GB of data onto the drive without any problems with heat / freeze ups. I think I read that this uses a Phison E12 controller on my laptops NVMe PCIe x4 interface. That combination is just what my 10th gen i7 laptop likes. Published performance specs are great and was able to reproduce them on crystal disk testing. No complaints after a total of 500GB written to the drive.
