About it: First of all I want to make clear about that, crucial is the only company who is making 1050GB SSDs in the whole market, and believe it not but as compared to 1TB SSDs, this Drive is also competitively cheap and worth buying only if you need some extra storage by spending less amount of money.

Crucial also includes a voucher for Acronis’ True Image HD software to facilitate the operation. Given the low price of the drive, that’s a pretty generous perk. Gratefully, this driver comes with three years of warranty which covers 160 GB’s of write/day for about 10 years which means you can do huge data transfer day to day stuff without taking any tension for about all your system long life span.

The sixth generation technology also offers the better protection for the data storage on the drive.

SanDisk also declares that the equipment what they use also promises to give a user steady performance even when you do multitasking, with low latency, over a long period of time, and even with the low energy power consumption. This SSD comes with 5 years of warranty just like Samsung do and in opinion, this SSD is a perfect match for a computer who need heavy storage with heavy performance.

#In My Opinion

According to me if you are looking to buy an SSD who can fit in for budget then Sandisk x400 is the one which actually gonna fulfill all your storage and performance needs because I’ve tested this SSD with Crucial and the results are quite good and believe it not but both SSDs having same price tag but the Sandisk is 9% faster than Crucial.

Actually, Sandisk is not the fastest 1TB SSD in the market but the Samsung do, and the thing is I can’t suggest you to buy a Samsung 1TB SSD because spending 400$ just for 5% extra performance as compared to Sandisk x400, isn’t that thoughtful.

#Best 1TB PCIe SSDs Available In the Market

First of all, sorry for not listing any 1TB PCI SSD Cards under this category because the reason is, there is not a single worthy SSD is available in the market under the 1TB category, but if you’re only looking to buy a PCI-e SSD for your computer or server, I also suggested two PCI SSDs listed down below who actually having storage capacity more than 1 TB and having the ultimate performance Specification listing on its box.

So, the thing is both of these SSDs are money worthy and you can feel free to buy it for your computer, only if you don’t mind paying some extra load of money.

1st – Intel 750 PCIe SSD (1.2TB) SSD

Product Details

  • Form Factor: PCIe SSD Card
  • Interface: PCI Express Generation 3 x4
  • Max Sequential Read/Write Speed: 2500 MB Per Second / 1200 MB Per Second
  • Max Random Read/Write Speed: 460,000 IOPS / 290,000 IOPS
  • Warranty/support: 5 Years

About it: Intel 750 Series SSDs is the latest storage technology what comes up lately with 18 Channel Non-Volatile Memory express controller by Intel. The thing which I really like about this SSD is, its price tag, a can’t say this is the fastest SSD in the market, but you can get the highest performance under that price range because there is not a single SSD is available out there who can compete this 750 Series SSD according to its price tag.

Mainly the Intel 750 Series SSD are available in two form factors, the first one is PCI x4, and the second one is 2.5 inch U.2 with having the SFF-8639 connector on it. But not every computer’s motherboard is having a U.2 connector on it but it have at least one PCI express slot to fit any card in it and that’s the part which makes this 750 Series PCIe version SSD more famous as compared to U.2.

And if you are looking for the faster performance than M.2 SSD then, this is the best SSD what you can buy by spending less amount of money.

2nd – Intel DC P3608 1.6TB SSD

Product Details

  • Form Factor: PCIe SSD Card
  • Interface: PCI Express Generation 3 x8
  • Max Sequential Read/Write Speed: 5000 MB Per Second / 2000 MB Per Second
  • Max Random Read/Write Speed: 850,000 IOPS / 150,000 IOPS
  • Warranty/support: 5 Years

About it: The first thing which I want you to make clear about this Intel DC P3608 1.6TB SSD is that, this is the fast SSDs series in the whole SSD market and you can’t compare this SSD with anyone out there because this PCIe SSD card can deliver up to 5GB/s of sequential data reading speed with 2GB/s of sequential data writing speed, isn’t that wonderful.

In this P3608 Series SSD, Intel excellently combines two same P3600s into one single SSD to achieve the highest performance from a single SSD Card. Administrators can utilize the SSDs separately or in RAID 1, or combine the two devices into one large RAID 0 volume for the utmost performance. Isn’t that great too?

And one more thing, Intel’s performance specifications are measured in the RAID 0 configuration, so RAID 1 and performance with separate volumes will vary.

So, if you are looking for the highest performer SSD for your server or computer then you really gonna thank me later after installing and test the incredible performance on your server or computer system.
