It Really Is A 1.024 TB Drive., Or About 2.4% Higher Capacity
(According To CrystalDisk Utility).
So What's The Problem?
None, Unless You Try To Clone It With A True 1TB Drive,
SanDisk SSD PLUS 1TB Internal SSD - SATA III 6 Gb/s, 2.5"/7mm, Up to 535 MB/s - SDSSDA-1T00-G26.
Samsung 860 QVO 1TB Solid State Drive (MZ-76Q1T0B/AM) V-NAND, SATA 6Gb/s, Quality and Value Optimized SSD
Tried Using A
"WavLink USB 3.0 to SATA I/II/III Dual-Bay External Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5/3.5-inch HDD/SSD with UASP (6Gbps) That Supports Offline Clone Duplicator Function."
But It Would Not Allow A Direct Clone Copy As
The SanDisk X400 Has A Higher Capacity Than The Two SSDs Listed.
Cloning To A 2TB, No Problem, But 1TB, Yes.
Aside From That Wrinkle, It's A Great Drive.
It's not the fastest SSD but the performance for the cost is excellent and this 512G is a great starter SSD with enough space for Windows + several games where it doesn't seem cramped.
NOTE: If you ONLY have an SSD in your system consider having more RAM (at least 16GB) and disable your system swap file (or move the swap file to a rotating HDD). A lot of sustained writes (like from a system swap file / page file) will wear the disk down faster, although with modern technologies it's rare that you'd still have the SSD by the time that actually happened. People tend to upgrade faster and even this disk should take YEARS of 24/7 operation before it is an issue.
That said, estimates and reality don't always mesh and usually other issues cause other problems, so far, none with this one, highly recommended.
Drive benchmark results:
Sequential read - 554m/bs
Sequential write - 418m/bs
Random read - 96,827
Random write - 44,743
Seq Read- 562mb/s
Seq Write - 471mb/s
RW - 78,430
This benchmark is with samsung 850pro set to reliablity mode without boost turned on. So you can see the SanDisk keeps up respectively for a value drive. The one thing lacking with SanDisk is the software that comes with it is really sub par compared to samsungs magician. I wish they had put a little thought into that rather then a extremely basic toolkit to show drive health.
Reduced loading times in applications and games and has given me a decent bump in file transfer rate. Also keep in mind that I'm still using SATA 2.0. Which means I'm not even utilizing the full potential of this drive since it is SATA 3.0 compatible.
I changed my review from 5 stars to 3 because something just occurred to me. This thing doesn't come with any mounting screws. It didn't matter to me at the time of purchase, luckily, because my pc case came with a caddy to mount the drive into. Without that caddy, i would have been screwed....because of the lack of screws.
I tried to run Crystal Disk Mark against the native sata connection however I kept running into issues trying to do the writes to the drive. However after placing it in my enclosure, I've gone from moving data at around 80MB/s to 240MB/s. I do a lot of photography so i'm moving many many files at the listed speed.
As for the wireless feature, I've now extended the battery life of my Seagate by removing the traditional rpm spinning disk. Streaming in my opinion got a little better with higher bit videos however your clearly stuck at the bottle neck that is this wifi enabled device. (based on some of my test, i'm streaming content at around 3MB/s (having the wifi drive within 10ft of target device).
I wanted to point out that this was not my first SSD that I tried to do this with, I purchased the Eluktro Pro 1tb SSD (B00QANBX8Y, you can see my review there on that). As for performance, the Eluktro put up ridiculous numbers, however because it has problems functioning in the Seagate enclosure, I had to return it. It did work great in a standard enclosure and was yielding me numbers in the 400MB/s however this was with an enclosure that supported USAP. I am giving up USAP so I can have the wifi function and still being able to transmit data at over 200MB/s is pretty boss.
The Eluktro Pro did give me better raw performance and offered the same warranty, so potentially you should look at that ssd. I am just glad that there are valued price SSD's for people that want to use them for storage only and not processing power.

The only thing I am disappointed by is the lack of SanDisk software for cloning. Initial research suggested that software is available from SanDisk - I found several links to 'offers' and several references to outdated information (don't you hate it when big websites don't clean up and provide current information?) supposedly fully functional if a SanDisk SSD is detected. None worked for me as they would not detect the SSD despite the system seeing it properly.
