I'd agree it's a good price, but given that it can only utilise SATA 3 it's not going to perform any better or worse than this for a few £'s less. If it was NVMe then hell yeah that would be a great price

This is the difference NVMe and itsmore than double the price!
the SSD you've linked is a good alternate but for someone that want's a 500gb M2.0 i think it's a good buy for the price! if your not to worried about it being ultra fast but still fast!

it's the exact same drive though just in a different form factor, you'll gain nothing for an extra £10. i see absolutely no reaosn other than marketing to spend more for a non PCIe SSD but then that's just my opinion

amazon isn't always best price, here is the drive you linked to https://www.shop.bt.com/products/samsung-960-evo-500gb-v-nand-m-2-ssd-mz-v6e500bw-CJBD.html?utm_source=awin&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_content=ZA0000&utm_source=awin&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_content=ZA00&awc=3043_1484149802_d5028892667110afec018a53c431069a

it's been around this price for ages. How is this suddenly a deal? Besides, I'm pretty sure you can buy it cheaper elsewhere

Edit: £147.37 from flubit

A few, beyond 4GB/s you can start to use larger paging files without the system crawling to a halt. the other, large amounts of small files (like pictures) load instantaneously has the nvme drives have even faster iops.

The only reason now to go beyond 4 GB/s on nvme drives is to match ddr4..

I think you're agreeing with me but wording is weird lol

yup i misread you post as "nvme is pointless" and yes, sata 3(600) on m.2 has a limited application

A bit pointless to waste a m.2 port for a sata drive. Just bought a sm961 512GB. Marvellous.

There are specific use cases. Older MacBook Airs use blade SATA drives. A £2 adapter plus one of these makes for a cheaper upgrade than official 3rd party drives. Ditto if you can still get hold of AHCI SM951 m.2 drives without making your credit card sweat.

So alternatives to this would be a Samsung 960 Evo from BT for £207 or a Samsung SM961Polaris from Novatech for £205?

nice :), now just fill that with games and move the OS off to a normal SATA SSD to save the precious speed space
