PNY M280CS2130-2TB-RB CS2130 2TB NVMe Solid State Drive Review
Built with 3D NAND Technology
This PNY M280CS2130-2TB-RB CS2130 2TB PCI Express 3.0 x4 NVMe Solid State Drive is designed to be a high performance SATA SSD replacement to help realize faster boot times, quicker application launches, and better overall system performance. The PNY CS2130 M.2 NVMe SSD is an excellent choice for an NVMe upgrade from a SATA based solid state drive (SSD) in an existing NVMe enabled PC or MAC desktop or laptop computer.
The SSD provides increased read and write speeds for faster boot times and quicker application launches. Whether you are a gamer, developer, or business professional, the CS1030 is ideal for anyone who is looking for enhanced performance and additional storage capacity.
This M.2 NVMe SSD utilizes PCIe interface and 3D NAND components for increased loading times, enhanced system performance, and low power consumption. The Gen3 x4 protocol allows the CS2130 to produce sequential read and write speeds up to 3,500 MB/s and 3,3000 MB/s, respectively. For motherboards that support multiple M.2 drives, you can take advantage of RAID 0 and 1 protocols for additional configuration options.
Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) is built directly into the CS2130. This technology automatically detects and reports possible hardware failures. To help prevent data loss, SMART notifies the host system so preventative action can be taken, saving you from losing any important information.
To promote longevity within your system, TRIM support takes unused data and erases it. This provides increased system performance and contribute to a longer lifespan of the drive, giving you 2-million hours mean time between failures (MTFB). This performance optimization requires assistance by your operating system to fully utilize.
2280 Form Factor
The CS2130 uses a M.2 2280 form factor, allowing you to use this drive in a variety of motherboard configurations.
