I take some searching on web and all sayed SSD are best only bussiness type using big hard disk.
Reading ssd 950 evo on start are good but i have one port for M.2 but I don't know if ssd will be better not to catch more temperature in case. Still Crucial 1TB is good price.

nvme?

My Western Digital NVME M.2 SSD idles at 40C, but can easily get to 60C under heavy load, such as long file transfers, or gaming.

My EVO drives tend to remain cooler because they are SATA III SSD's, and they are connected externally, so not inside the system like my NVME is.

What they are most likely explaining is. If you are going to be doing writes to the hard drive every single day in large quantities, were talking gigabytes worth every day, then you want to get a business commercial grade SSD, cause they are the only kind that are gonna last.

Consumer grade SSD's from Samsung and Western Digital are quality drives, but they are not made for that kind of workload. So it really depends on how you are planning to use the drive. Are you just gonna install games once on the drive and play? Get consumer grade and save money!

But if your going to be doing constant file transfers every single day of large quantities, like what they do in server's in server farms, then you better go business commercial grade.

There are 2 different m2 slots, keep in mind you pick the correct one. I made a mistake to put a m2 nvme upside down. Turned on the laptop and the nvme chip burned to dead.

That is a very nice hard drive Bourne. To answer your question though, the Samsung PRO drives will be of higher quality, will be faster, and have more cache onboard. The reason we Linux users love Samsung's EVO drives, is because we can get a lot of storage space on the cheap.

The Samsung EVO drives come with a 5-year warranty I believe, but if you are careful with the drive, don't overuse it in writes, it has the potential of lasting longer then that.

Movies and music i writeable on hdd. I heard the ssd best using on operative system. That why little afraid as you know I many things experimental systems and software. In theory I can copy my ssd primary with Paragon Hard Disk Manager™ 25 Anniversary LE (wondering if he don't copy bad sectors) 1TB it will be to big for me. You know more place gived you more possibility. 500GB x 2 for two operating systems maybe better choice and some one hard disk ssd for data files?
