Netac, an established esoteric flash storage company, sent us the NV7000-t for review. This is an NVMe SSD keyed in a M.2 2280 form factor with a price of $66.99 USD at Amazon (1 TB).

The NV7000-t is available in 512 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB models. Our sample is the 1 TB variant, featuring sequential read and write speeds of 7,300 MB/s and 6,600 MB/s respectively.

Disclosure: Netac sent the NV7000-t NVMe SSD for the purpose of this review. The company did not ask me to say anything particular about it.

Packaging and Accessories

The Netac NV7000-t comes in a simple packaging.

Scope of delivery are as follows:

  • Netac NV7000-t
  • Aluminum heat-spreader
  • Screw set
  • Documentation

Basic stuff we got here. I am surprised to see the heat-spreader still detached though.

Design, Build and Connectivity

The NV7000-t comes in an all back appearance. Now without the heat-spreader attached, we could clearly see the NAND flash ICs, each featuring 512 GB of capacity. The controller is also located in this area of the drive which makes sense. Pretty basic to its core, but nothing to nitpick at – especially with its enticing price-point considered.

The rear houses the SSD’s label. Nothing much to see here folks.

This is a PCIe 4.0 x4 NVMe SSD and is also keyed in the popular M.2 2280 form factor.


On our throughput benchmarks, the NV7000-t is about 11% slower on read and 21% slower on write – if compared to Netac’s claimed sequential speeds.

AS SSD is no better but this is still a set of strong numbers for the budget oriented drive.


The NV7000-t scored well at CrystalDiskMark’s IOPS benchmarks. At its RND4KQ32T16 test, the Netac SSD scored 1050K IOPS and 552K IOPS for the read and write respectively.

AS SSD’s 4K-64Thrd benchmark outputs 596K IOPS read and 627K IOPS write.

Access Time

Results from Anvil Storage Utilities are excellent. Everything is under a second.

File Copy

Now file copy performance is where this drive shines the most or at least at the ISO copy test with its 5571.40 MB/s output. Copying files similar to a program’s structure nets a measly 509 MB/s while game is measured at 1660 MB/s.

Above translates to 0.19, 2.76 and 0.83 seconds. Suffice to say, it is a fast drive when copying a large chunk of file.


AS SSD’s compression benchmark showed strong results for the NV7000-t aside from the occasional write performance dips. Read speed is at 5644 MB/s while write speed is at 4496 MB/s on average.


It took 128 GB of data to fully saturate the write cache of the NV7000-t. That said, it is safe to assume that its SLC cache’s capacity is around that figure.


Thermal output is excellent. The bundled heat-spreader is enough for this drive’s well-being.

Final Thoughts

We’ve seen many winning SSD designs these past few months and it seems that the Netac NV7000-t will join the fray. It does actually, featuring great throughput, I/O speed, latency and decent enough write cache. That’s on top of its incredible price of $69.99 USD.

The only thing you need to worry about is its TBW rating which is acceptable at 640 TB. Still, I would prefer to see something around the thousand mark. Granted, it does come with its own health check and utility tool in the form of the Netac SSD Tool Box and a 5 year warranty – which ever comes first.

In closing, the Netac NV7000-t is a value oriented storage device no doubt. A great SSD to check out if you need the speed at a very affordable price.
