Silicon Power P34A80 NVMe SSD Review

Lately I’ve been taking a look at a few different NVMe SSDs from some of the biggest storage brands out there, Seagate and WD. But today I have an SSD review from a brand you may not have heard of, Silicon Power and their P34A80 NVMe SSD.

Big thanks to Silicon Power for sending this over for review!

What’s in the Box?

Included in the box is the SSD itself packaged nicely inside of a plastic shell to keep it protected during shipping.

The packaging is quite nice looking with a red and black gamery look to it. It would definitely catch your eye in a brick and mortar store.

Design and Features

Design wise the P34A80 is a pretty bland looking SSD, Silicon Power went the cheaper route and used a green PCB instead of going with a nicer looking black or blue PCB.

The label on the SSD matches the box design with the red and black gamery look to it, which I am quite a fan of. The fingers on the M.2 connector are gold plated which gives the fingers more strength and better connectivity over time.

The rear of the PCB is also not cluttered with chips so putting this SSD the rear of the motherboard won’t interfere with the motherboard tray.

Features

  • Super-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface for read/write speeds of up to 3,400MB/s / 3,000MB/s
  • NVMe 1.3 support
  • RAID engine for enhanced data integrity
  • Supports SLC Cache and DRAM Cache Buffer. Provides great SSD sequential read/write and random read/write performance.
  • Slim form factor M.2 2280 for perfect fit in slim and portable mobile applications or desktop PCs

Pricing

The Silicon Power P34A80 can be found online for around $250 AUD and $130 USD

Conclusion

The Silicon Power P34A80 is a pretty good SSD for the money, it is almost double the performance of the Crucial P1 SSD for only around $50 more. I would recommend the Silicon Power P34A80 over the Crucial P1 as a budget oriented 1TB NVMe SSD.

Buy one from Amazon Australia and Amazon.com
