    Samsung X5 Speeds on TB1 Macs

    I recently purchased a 500GB Samsung X5 external TB3 drive that I intend on installing a larger NVMe and using it as my primary boot drive on my Late 2012 iMac.

    MP 6,1 Mac Pro 6,1 SSD Upgrade

    I am looking into upgrading my Mac Pro 6,1 from the original 1TB SSD to a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB. I have read a lot of recommendations saying to use the EKWB heat sink with it. Many of the reviews for EKWB heat sink state that it’s very hard to get both clips on the Samsung 970 EVO. Does...

    Buy a new Imac - Considerations on SSD speeds

    Recently I tried a Samsung X5 external Nvme M.2 SSD, connected via Thunderbolt 3 to an end-2017 Imac, pumped up on steroids with 64 Gb Ram (OWC 2666 Mhz DDR4 SODIMM PC4-21400). Yes the 2666 Mhz are working even it that model is using 2400 Mhz originally (the advantage, in case you buy a new Imac...

    Generic NVMe M.2 adapter

    So I've just ordered this bad boy in the attachment. It's an adapter to fit a M.2 NVMe SSD into the 12+16 pin slot on my MacBook Pro Retina 2015. Since it's not one of the two known brands (Sintech and Chanyang), I'm looking for some user experiences with this specific brandless generic...

    Is External NVME ssd fast enough for 4k editing?

    Sold my previous 5,1 Mac Pro to fund my 2019 MacBook Pro i9/16GB/512/560x in July to learn video editing with Final Cut Pro. I thought the 512GB base storage would be enough but found out after a few months that it wasn't. I still have my Crucial 1TB nvme from my Mac Pro, so I went and bought an...

    Fusion drive between NVMe and SATA SSD?

    My late-2015 27" iMac has been feeling slow lately when there's a lot of disk access going on (like when running VMWare). It's pretty clear the bottleneck is the existing 2.2TB fusion drive. I was thinking of replacing the stock drive components with a 2TB NVMe, but then was wondering if some...
