Will this SSD + adapter go well with a HP 290?

Yep, you’ll have to use the x16 slot though.

Updated!

This is overkill to put in a 290 for plex metadata, right? Somebody talk me out of doing this.

I have a 30+ TB plex instance with 3000+ movies and many shows all with video and chapter thumbnails and every meta data feature they offer. My plex instance size is about 600 GB and I run it on a 900 GB SSD. I dont see you ever needing 2 TB just for plex but I dont know your library size. That said, this 2TB is almost as cheap as a 1TB so…

It’s overkill unless you’re generating video preview thumbnails.

What wear level are people seeing one the ones they have purchased?
Also is it weird that the chips look rubbed out?

PCIe adapter is not available anymore. Any good alternatives?

Still available.

I really like this one, just keep in mind that only one of the slots works for NVme. The heat-sinks are high quality and the fan is silent.

There’s the details from my drive.
5 power on hours. The drive looks, from this data, basically brand new. My chips did look a bit worn though, which was strange. I can’t even begin to guess why that would be.

The wear could be from something as simple as improper storage.

Here are is my test and smart data

Packaging came with a little bonus. Never saw a SSD packaged with a popsicle stick before .
