Combining Quality And Ultimate Cost-effectiveness Aigo P2000 Nvme Ssd Review

[Bestbuy618DIY Hardware Channel]Affected by multiple factors, we have been able to feel the inconvenience caused by a chip shortage, and not only chips, the global semiconductor industry has ushered in a cold winter over the last two years. And in the mining trend catalyst, the price of storage devices also rose, in addition to the original price of the graphics card cannot be purchased, all kinds of price increases in storage devices have also become a user installation, expansion plans, “stumbling block”. Storage products, particularly solid state drives that we can see in desktop or laptop computers, play a critical role in the device.

Aside from the processor and graphics card, the strength of the storage device is an important factor in determining PC performance. It concerns data reading and writing, how quickly or slowly system files load, and can even affect boot speed.

A good SSD is especially important if you have high productivity or gaming needs; among domestic storage brands, aigo impressed me the most. I recall a good friend giving me a red and white aigo flash drive as a gift for my 18th birthday.

This flash drive was my first introduction to the aigo brand, and I used it for many years. Today, aigo has been in business for 21 years and has extensive storage technology and a large user base.

As a national brand, aigo continues to innovate, and the name “aigo” represents the brand’s new look. People have always had a soft spot for national products. However, aigo believes that the true good things do not only require “sentiment,” “big brand,” and that the brand should come up with good and inexpensive products so that consumers can get real benefits – this year in the Double eleven aigo P2000 on a good reflection.

Good goods at a low price, the price to a new low, to increase sales, and the majority of consumers praise We’ll look at how such an SSD can help consumers right now.

The packaging for the aigo P series is designed in a family style, which is also aigo’s new design language. The box features a classic black background and the iconic red logo. The slogan “National Goodies” by aigo is located in the top left corner of the box. This time, we tested the P2000 1TB, which is also reflected on the box surface.

The bottom right corner of the box displays aigo’s dedication to quality: “Original and genuine”, “Lifetime maintenance” and “3 years warranty (now extended to 5 years)”. extended to 5 years)”.

The aigo P2000’s inner box is transparent and comes with a fixing screw for easy hard drive installation. The rectangular opening on the back of the box simply exposes the hard drive inside, eliminating the need to open the box to see the P2000’s true face, which is also a thoughtful design.

The aigo P2000 is an M.2 interface that supports the NVMe protocol and PCIe 3.0 lanes. The specific drive data is shown below. The aigo P2000 employs TLC particles, which are currently the most commonly used particles in consumer SSDs. In the current SSD market, MLC is expensive and frequently costs consumers more; while QLC, despite being able to stack more layers, is more difficult to achieve high quality due to the life of the particles themselves and the stacking technology.

From a comprehensive standpoint, TLC has become the consensus of most manufacturers in the current consumer SSD market. The selection of TLC particles can be both storage performance and cost effective under the premise of ensuring performance, life, and price trade-offs.

Furthermore, to ensure quality, the P2000 employs TLC self-sealing particles with high quality white chips. To ensure the accuracy of data transmission, LDPC (low density error correction code) intelligent error correction is supported, and average erase times can reach QLC particles about 7 times.

This time, we chose the test platform by AMD Raider 7 3700X as the CPU, motherboard selection GIGABYTE X570 Gaming X, with two full-blooded PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD interface; memory using two Corsair Avenger LPX DDR4-3600MHz high-frequency memory, to ensure that the aigo P2000 performs as expected. The so-called HMB technology is known as Host Memory Buffer, and it was developed in 2014 by the NVMe Association. The technology itself is simple to understand; it allows SSDs to work through the system CPU by using a portion of the host’s memory via the PCIExpress interface’s Direct Memory Access (DMA) function, which allows SSDs to have more space when reading and writing cache and buffer, improving SSD transfer speeds; at the same time, this technology also helps consumer SSD solutions to further achieve

The aigo P2000 uses the more common M.2 2280 specification, and the main control is the Huirong SM2263XT, which is also used by many major hard drive manufacturers. Officially, the aigo P2000 can reach a read speed of 2100MB/s, but we look at the test results specifically. First, we used CrystalDiskMark7.0 software for testing, which can test the traditional continuous read and write, 512KB and 4KB random read and write performance, as well as 4K random performance and other conventional tests, in addition to the queue settings and data blocks, which give users new options.

Multiple tests show that this SSD can reach read speeds of around 2100MB/s and write speeds of around 1700MB/s, which is roughly in line with the official nominal figures. We typically use ATTO Disk Benchmark software to test the read and write speeds of SSDs under various sized data test packages. According to the test results, the aigo P2000 can maintain a read speed of 1.9GB/s and a write speed of more than 1.5GB/s. However, in several tests, the aigo P2000’s read speed fluctuated to some extent when the file size was 24MB, but it was also able to maintain around 1.67GB/s.

The aigo P2000 was able to maintain sequential read and write speeds of around 2000MB/s and 1700MB/s, respectively, in the TxBench software test, which roughly matches the CrystalDiskMark software test data. The AS SSD software’s 4K-64Thrd multi-threaded random read/write test results show that the aigo P2000 can achieve read/write speeds of 206,848 ipos and 248,195 ipos, respectively, an indicator that The P2000 data can easily meet the demands of mainstream gaming on SSDs.

The aigo P2000 scored 1502 in the PCMark 10 Pro hard drive test, with a bandwidth of approximately 247.69MB/s. We also tested the aigo P2000 with HD Tune Pro software to see if it could detect slow outages. When consistently writing 160GB files, the P2000’s speed began to fluctuate, with rates ranging between 1.5GB/s and 250MB/s.

In addition to separate speed tests, we also performed a file transfer speed test on the aigo P2000, primarily from the aforementioned Samsung 970 EVO Plus to the aigo P2000. In just 18.4 seconds, 20GB of 200 JPG 300 RAW format photos were written to the aigo P2000; in just 15.3 seconds, 20GB of 1080P video files were written to the aigo P2000. The transfer rate is also kept at a reasonable level.

The aigo P2000 inherits the quality of aigo’s products, which have been praised by customers for their superior performance and low cost performance among storage products on the market. The aigo P2000’s commitment to quality is also written on the product, which currently supports a 5-year warranty of 512TBW write life (whichever comes first), which basically guarantees stable operation over a fairly long period of time. Generally speaking, it is difficult for users to completely use up the 512TBW life, and the 5-year warranty basically guarantees the minimum use of the product. Currently, SATA interface hard drive prices average around 45 cents per GB, but the aigo P2000 price drops directly to 40 cents per GB, almost setting a new record low.

As a PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD, the aigo P2000 1TB price/performance ratio has been maximized, allowing users to upgrade their old computers or directly buy back into a hard drive box into a mobile SSD, where buying is earning.
