    Describe the issue

  • Welsh Jester 4 months ago

    I want to buy an SSD which is suitable for everyday use of downloading files, browsing, playing games, occasional video editing & some in game recording which i assume is fairly heavy use. Would there be a big difference between the Pro vs the Evo doing those things or will the Evo still last a long time? I want to be able to get at least 6 years out of it without issues.
