M.2 SSDs are arguably the best upgrade you could get for your computer, in the past couple of years. Hence, it’s not surprising that a lot of memory and storage manufacturers, focus on this competitive market, releasing many new products. Silicon Power however, is one of those brands that don’t flood the market with too many new series, but rather focuses on a fewer products that seems to be more interesting for end-users.
Not so long time ago, we’ve reviewed the US70 PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD, which is lighting fast but isn’t the cheapest. Those users who still want high performance but also high capacity at a lower price can be interested in the latest UD70 SSD, which works at the PCIe 3.0 bus, but its price per GB is much better.
I hope that this review will tell you a lot about Silicon Power UD70 2TB M.2 SSD. Let’s begin with specifications and features.
