XPG SX8200 Pro Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅06-12-18
We’ve reviewed several drives from XPG in the last year or so and always found them to be punching well above their weight as far as cost:performance is concerned. They may not, quite, achieve the absolute fastest drive in our tests, but the actual real-world difference would be extremely difficult to notice.

With capacities ranging from 256GB to 2TB (though we’re not actually able to find a 2TB model for sale anywhere at the time of writing), XPG cater to all budgets and needs. A 256GB drive is still ample for a modest user, installing a few key applications and only using the system for light tasks, but seeking a responsive and fast system, whereas a 1TB or 2TB drive is ideal for your games library, allowing rapid access and quick loading times in all of your favourite titles.

The likes of the Crucial P1, Corsair MP510 and Samsung 970 EVO need be very worried, as far as we’re concerned. If you were considering any of those drives, we think you’d be hard-pressed to justify buying any of them over the XPG SX8200 Pro, especially when considering the optional heatsink and 5-year warranty, alongside very competitive TBW ratings.

If you’ve considered buying an NVMe drive to help speed up your system, or even just rid the wires of a SATA based alternative, this should absolutely be top of your list.
