Average Rating
Average rating based on reviews
Number of total page views
Number of times compared to another product
Total number of reviews on IT Central Station
Number of followers on IT Central Station
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. For Views, Comparisons, Reviews, and Followers the score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score of 17.5 points. Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 17.5% (weighting factor) * 80% = 14. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 30 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

It boosted productivity for performance sensitive applications, from database to file serving, to server virtualization and other activities.

What needs improvement?

The current product is good as is. It is a great value for many environments that need or want an NVMe SSD in a PCIe AiC format. However, there are also newer versions such as Optane, as well as higher-end data center class models/products... more»

What is most valuable?

With having to record various artist, projects take a huge amount of space so we have to replace space more than we should. Protools itself takes up tons of space along with other applications such as FL Studio and Ableton Live, and Adobe Photoshop makes it no better on a hard disk drive. When I used a friend's laptop that consisted of a solid state drive, I... more»

What needs improvement?

256GB is way too small. The price for the 256GB device was in my price range and I still did not know how beneficial it was so I tried it. It was amazing, but I just didn't have enough space. You never understand how much space a project can take up until you have almost no space available. I had to basically use the SSD as a bridge whenever I filled its... more»
