SanDisk's data migration software is not as good and easy as Samsung. Samsung's SSDs are more expensive than SanDisk SSD, but they are more durable and faster when rapid mode is turned on.

Is 1ms really necessary for gaming? Can I live with 4 or 5 MS if I can save $100?

Is it possible my samsung TV is giving me 300 to 400ms latency on my xbox. I can just tell there is something wildly wrong when I play Fortnite, and I have a new gigabit modem and router setup, so I am hoping that the lag is not coming from them. Also, the self tests on the xbox tell me my latency is acceptable at like 30 to 50ms, but it feels like I am a good quarter second or more off in head to head battles. If the TV is very latent, I will try using a monitor so I don't suck as badly as I do now.
