That SR review? When did they become worse that Toms Hardware?
Seriously bench marking a storage device through Hyper-V, and not clarifying if the guest OS had direct/sole access to the device? The SQL transactions per second look like RAM/CPU limited and not storage limited... The WD Blue SSD gets 3109 TPS, and the 980 Pro gets 3160 TPS, the Intel Optane (which is a ideal for SQL Server) doesn't even get a mention? All devices are with ~3% of each other?
And those graphs? Backward lines with some looking like a preschooler drew them? (What did I miss on how to interpret them)?
Oh, is the 980 Pro is TLC or MLC... On Samsungs own spec sheet:
Sorry, my memory is bad and I don't recall the details, but SR used to have it's own forum, which had problems, so this one was created and SR forum members transferred to it. Here's a link to an early thread of this forum, from January, 2002.
No need to apologise, I myself was at one time one was a member of the SR forums, and migrated to here a few years before Eugene sold it... (the quality of posters was steadily dropping, and saw a post mentioning here that the 'old timers' were migrating to).
IIRC, the migration occurred as SRs forum's DB was lost with no/little backup...
