HP EX920 256Gb use PCIe Gen3 that is twice slower than PCIe 4.0. The sequential write speed is 1800 Mbps, that is slower than has most of rivals. The Internal SSD provide possibility to write 160 TBW, that is not much compared to rivals. Weighing all these factors, HP EX920 256Gb has more disadvantages and we highly do not recommend to buy it.
