    The Samsung drives are really good. I have 2 x 970 EVO NVMe SSDs in my NAS as read/write cache. Intel drives are also good, but tend to be really pricey. In the corporate PC space, I've also used Crucial and Toshiba, but they typically don't perform as well as the Samsungs.

    If you're looking to get a new system, look for NVMe SSD over SATA SSD. NVMe is wicked fast and has lower latency due to not requiring a disk controller between the storage and the system bus.

    Lots of Enterprise Flash storage system vendors are using Samsung and Toshiba internals for Tier1.5 flash drives in both SAS and NVMe interface flavors depending on the controller/enclosure supported interface. As insinuated in an earlier comment I made, we recently had a catastrophic failure with some Samsung drives in a DRAID6 array going offline. The vendor replaced all of them with Toshiba drives because Samsung couldn't figure out how to fix the problem quickly enough with a firmware update. This was a critsit with all OEM vendors' code guys on the line. Lowest bidder issue I suspect. That alone doesn't deter my preference for them for PC consumer use.

    Honestly, if you don't have massive amounts of stuff to backup, a microSD might be the perfect solution. Like a 128GB card (normally used for digital cameras). Bury it in a can in the yard and update it a couple times a year. Let a family member know where it is too. Good for document scans, photos, etc.

    Secondary advantage: MicroSD by itself is already fully immune to even the worst of the worst EMP events, because it's so f%$^ing small that sufficient current can induct.
