Wickedly fast speeds are just a tiny bit slower in Crystal Diskmark compared to my 970 evo plus 1TB. Not noticable in everyday use or gaming. (screenshots)
Only downfall is no real consumer support like software for data migration, testing or setup like Samsung Magician or technical support. Technical support is listed as not covered under the 5 Year limited warranty.
The drive is Branded HP, warranty is technically backed by HP but is in reality a Multipointe Channel Solutions product the exclusive HP SSD distributor in North America.
The drive is actually manufactured by BIWIN Inc in Shenzhen, China.
Firmware updates and NVME drivers come from Multipointe not from HP.
Excellent performing drive for price, highly recommended I don't understand why these Silicon Motion SM2262EN based ssds are more popular or widespread.
1. It is NOT an authentic HP product. It is possibly an OEM partner with rights to use HP branding on it's label. If not I don't know how this is allowed to be sold. When calling for HP support they will tell you as much.
2. It is produced and warrantied by a company called Multipointe
3. They covered the warranty and it is being replaced.
4. In my case, this part was incompatible with the Premium front panel USB C port. With the SSD installed it halts the system and gives a false indication that the USB-C port firmware failed an update. The HP tech and myself never considered the SSD being the issue because of the label. It wasn't until I had the MB, CPU and Front Panel replaced and we still witnessed the error that we took into account the SSD drive.
As with any PC hardware certain combinations of hardware can cause issues, but this one certainly had not been tested with my particular setup. Buyer beware.
I love it.
I attached screenshots of both drives in CDM for comparison.
In real world you really wouldn't tell any difference between the two, NVMe SSDs and their speeds nowadays are more than enough for most people. I am just happy this SSD seems reliable and looks like it will last long. Good one HP/Silicon Motion.
hdparm -t /dev/nvme... yields 3200. normal sata is about 550.
this has 2 leds below the label, too; not sure what's different but they blink at different rates when disk is being accessed. if its under a heatsink, you'd never know ;)

Note to the non tech savvy. Install first into your system and go to the Disk Partitioner. Initialize the SSD as MBR or GPT partitioned drive. Google search can help you with this. With GPT you get UEFI booting. When installing Windows it may say it can't use this drive. What it really means is it can't use it as a single partition. Click the New button a few times and accept. Windows will add the boot and recovery partitions, then it will let you add the rest of drive as the driver for install.
