    this or the Corsair MP600 PRO LPX 2TB both seem similar any every way

    They both use exactly the same Phison controller and Micron flash. The only real difference is that Kingston guarantee 1600 TBW and Corsair "only" 1400 TBW. You probably won't hit either number inside five years anyway. The Corsair does include a heatsink though, so perhaps better if your motherboard doesn't have one or you're sticking it in a PS5.

    Nice price for the 2tb model but as usual on Amazon site, due to where the 4tb option is listed, looks like a bad joke in comparison.

    I really want to leave my SK Hynix 512gb (7000 R/W) in my Legion laptop as its really just an OS drive so i am looking at a similar spec 4tb drive for the 2nd NVME slot for Gamepass/Steam directory.

    The wait continues, heat added tho.

    Seems to be practically the same. TBW, Random RW IOPS, Write speed. Just the read is 7300 instead of 7000. Personally I'd save £12 for such a microscopic difference.
