APS-SE20Q (500Gb) produced by Pioneer support PCIe 3 that is undoubtedly slower than PCIe 4.0. The maximum write speed is 3000 Mb/s, that is pretty good for this expansion standard. The Internal SSD can write 200 TBW, that is bad in comparison with closest competitors. After evaluating all the facts, Pioneer APS-SE20Q 500Gb has more cons and we do not recommend to have it.
- Good writing speed
- PCIe 3.0
- Writing speed
