NVMe drives have been taking the PC market by storm for the past few years and recently have gotten quite affordable. A simple 128GB NVMe SSD is only $50! Only $20 more than a standard Sata SSD and is 100% worth it in my opinion. 

So in today’s review I’m taking a look at one of Seagate’s budget NVMe SSDs, The Seagate Barracuda 510 512GB NVMe SSD.

Big thanks to Seagate for sending this out for review!

What’s in the box? Not a lot, you get the Seagate Barracuda 510 which is nicely wrapped in an anti-static bag and some documentation-That’s it. Not even a sticker!

Well, the Design of the Seagate 510 is really the same as any M.2 SSD. It has a blue PCB with gold fingers on the M.2 Key (Socket M). The Seagate 510 SSD does not have an integrated heat sink but a lot of motherboards these days have integrated heat spreaders anyhow.

The official software for the Seagate Barracuda 510 is the Seagate SSD GUI which allows you to access a bunch of details about the drive as well as Seagate’s S.M.A.R.T Data. Another piece of software offered is Seagate’s DiscWizard which gives you basic disk cloning and imaging abilities.

The Seagate Barracuda 510 512GB NVMe SSD can be found for about $130-$200 AUD on most online retailers, Like Amazon Australia.
