SK hynix Gold S31 1TB 3D NAND 2.5 inch SATA III Internal SSD
Never heard of SK Hynix? That's ok. You're probably using their stuff right now and don't know it because SK Hynix is one of the world's largest producers of semiconducters and memory. It's just most of what they make goes into your phone or MacBook and you never see the name. The Gold S31 SSD is one of their first consumer level products, and these SSDs are really good. Read the Windows Central review where the SSDs earned 4.5 stars and a Recommended badge.
The Gold S31 SSDs are normal SATA drives, so you won't get the same speed of an NVMe M.2 SSD, but then again if you're looking at these you're probably not looking to spend the kind of money you need for an NVMe M.2 drive. As it is, the speed isn't so bad. You'll get sequential read speeds up to 560 MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 525 MB/s.
SK Hynix can make a really reliable SSD because they can use their own 3D NAND and controller to develop it. The SSD is rated for up to 1.5 million hours MTBF (which is Mean Time Between Failures and 1.5 million is a crazy high number) and 600 terabytes written. The SSDs are also backed up by a five-year warranty.
Users give these SSDs 4.6 stars out of 5 based on 493 reviews.
