I mean, this NVME is faster than a standard SSD but it's very, very slow compared to other NVMEs. A Samsung Evo is £15-£20 more and over twice as fast. Unless you're going to be working with large files, the average user wont notice a difference over a standard SSD.

Fantastic price

Fantastic price


Yeah couldn't believe it either. This is same if not cheaper than the comparable none nvme drives. Plus 5 year warranty is brilliant.

Seems spurious reasoning that mate. The average user won't notice any difference between this nvme drive and a Samsung nvme drive. I've seen videos showing the difference in game load times is often as little as 1 second between nvme and ssd.

That being said this drive could be useful for people looking to save space, dip their toes in m.2 drives or anyone just looking for a good deal.

Yeah I guess you're right, I didn't see it like that!

It's nice to see prices coming down. Not long ago these prices were for m.2 none nvme drives.

I'll be honest the average Joe pc user will not notice a difference upgrading an ssd to this drive other than in moving file scenarios.

However this is a good price in my opinion for what you get.

I said the average user wont notice a difference with any NVME drives & a standard SSD., not just this one. One whole second! Crazy.

Yeah I fully agree. I utilise fast read speeds (not so much write) and it's good to see NVMe drives dropping as well as SSDs (even if for the mean time it's low speed ones).

The HUKD member Is correct in the respect of this particular model been slow for an NVME drive....ADATA also make the SX8200 NVME drive with the same storage capacity for not much more, plus it is highly rated next to the EVO 970.

But as far as NVME drives go , it is well priced.

Here you go - hotukdeals.com/dea…293
Can you get a thunderbolt 2 enclosure for this? Would make a great boot drive for my two year old iMac :-
Would this fit inside dell inspiron 15r 5521?
Thank you so much
Does it fit in Macbook air?
Been keeping my eye on 256GB SX8200 for my MacBook.Will wait for that model
For reference I paid £4 more the SX8200 3 days ago, increased a bit now but might want to hold out

May need to get M Key M.2 PCI-e To 12+16Pin AHCI SSD Adapter Card For Mac Air Pro 2013 2014 2015.
I got one for my MacBook pro mid 2014 just been waiting to get A ssd
Might aswell spend the £10 more get a SX8200 (or MP510, 970 EVO). the SX6000 is a very slow NVMe drive, i mean its faster than sata but that £10 does net you a very substantial performance increase.
Very slow for an NVME SSD. These writes aren't much faster than a SATA drive.

Almost double the speed.

800 isn't double 550.

Additionally, my Samsung SM961 SSDs write at around 1400.
Where is the SX8200 available for £10 more. Got a link?

It's literally just above your post
this is pci-e 3.0 x2 hence the lower speeds
Crivens! How did this reach 883 degrees? The only reason I can think of buying this over the SX8200 is if your motherboard is limited to 2x PCIe NVMe - even then, i'd still recommend spending the extra tenner.
Foy Ryzen/Threadripper owners this would be great when used with storemi and a big regular HD for a games library

I'm guessing because it's a simply simply luvley price.
