HP EX920 SSD Review - Mainstream Perfection (Page 8)

Final Thoughts

The HP EX920 was the "it" NVMe SSD of the summer but some things have changed since it gained notoriety just after CES. The EX920 is still an excellent SSD today but you have to pay slightly more to harness the last few drops of performance. In the real-world, you likely wouldn't see a difference.


The EX920 was the first retail SSD we saw with the SM2262 controller. HP worked up a custom firmware that gave this series explosive performance that Intel, Adata, and others with the same controller couldn't match in most capacities.

Now in our last days of summer, the EX920 still leads the SM2262 drives in performance but HP's smaller role in the European and American SSD markets hasn't allowed the company to scale pricing as aggressively. The short story on this is one we've told before over the years. If you want the extra performance, you have to pay a little more for it.
