MSI Spatium M480 HS Review

MSI is now a player in SSDs. The Spatium M480 HS, the flagship of the gaming hardware company’s fledgling consumer SSD line, is a PCI Express 4.0-compatible M.2 solid-state drive with sizzling rated and tested sequential read-write speeds, especially in the 2TB capacity we tested ($444.99, with models starting at $229.99). The “HS” in the drive’s name refers to its bronze-tinted, finned aluminum heatsink, which adds only $10 to the sticker price over the non-heatsink version (the MSI Spatium M480). Unless you’re outfitting a laptop or a desktop motherboard that’s too cramped to fit this device, the small extra outlay to add the heatsink is money well spent.
