Someone posted a link to Intel 660 M2 slightly cheaper, but for an extra 9 GBP You can get 3x the speed of Intel own SSD. Also it's amazon so this item is Prime eligible rather than waiting a week for orders from cconline. 4 left In stock but Amazon says more on the way.

Haha! Thanks to you I've got new drive then 😘 The thing with cconline is that you have to wait a week with free delivery or it's £1 more and you get it with Amazon faster delivery (assuming you've got prime hehe)

Fair Enough as not just the price determine a deal to be the deal, heat added accordingly.
Very good price this, these have a pretty amazing 800TBW endurance and a 5 year warranty.
Will this be the approx price for drives like these from now on?

Was going to wait until the end of the month for a half-terabyte M.2 drive to go in my Dell 7577, but don’t want to miss out

It's difficult to judge, as it is a discount from £119 and one that I could actually swallow, saying that intel 660 512GB is £54 so looks like there are M2 deals coming.
Looks like this is a on going price since it's been this price for 3 weeks now.
I purchased one of these earlier today. Seems to be the best price for performance/durability at the moment. Heat added
This may be a stupid question, but is there much benefit of me buying this for use as an external drive for my macbook?

Presume the USB 3.1 won't take full benefit of the speed but will the drive be under less load and get less hot?

You could try and find a thunderbolt enclosure. You get excellent performance that way.

Thanks, found it quite difficult to find a thunderbolt one so will stickwoth usb 3.1 - it's more reliability & low power than performance I'm needing
@wiedziu , See the power of HUKD , Now, please update your price to £64.91 .
Has anyone double checked the speeds listed above? I was looking at this drive but many shops listed the speeds much lower than the 960gb version which does run at the above listed speeds. 480gb 3480/2000 and 360k/440k iops vs 960gb 3480/3000 and 610k/570k iops.

Yes, Amazon has same description for both. You'd spotted it,

These are just Phison E12 drives, so yes, the speed of the smaller drives is lower. Those in the range of 250GB hit 50% of the speed, 500GB hit 75%, best is 1TB, and then there is a small drop again for 2TB. The speeds you list are right in that ballpark and exactly what you can expect. I can vouch that these speeds are what you get with the Silicon Power NVMe drives, which use the same Phison E12.

Truth be told, you probably shouldn't care about the speed difference. The top sequential speed is a speed you almost never use in day-to-day life. What you should care about is random speed (of small files) as well as speed when the drive is full. Those are pretty much the same across the board for common scenarios. The E12 is a very capable controller, especially for its price. Just buy the capacity you need for a price you can afford. This is probably the best NVMe SSD you can buy unless you want to shell out for a WD Black SN750 or a Samsung 970 (Evo or Pro).

For USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5Gbs) the sequential speeds of this won't be any more than for a SATA SSD.
Plus the enclosures for SATA M.2 drives are cheaper.
Random performance will still be better I suspect so it's down to how much extra you want to pay chasing pertormacne.
Anyone know how well this would work in a dell 7577 laptop? I remember people saying nvme drives had
problems with that model dellwhen talking about the EVO 970

also, any deals on the 1tb version?

Did it mention what problems there were? This is a standard NVMe drive so as long as the motherboard supports 4 channel pci-e on the m2 slot it will be 'full speed' (as in whatever they say their theoretical performance metrics are for this specific device combination). The issues I've seen with regards to moving to an NVMe drive usually stem from people wanting to transfer their existing windows set up to the new NVMe drive and there being some, let's say, idiosyncrasies ... in how Windows handles ACHI versus RST (RAID). In a word they're not compatible with each other. Installing under one means if you switch to the other Windows does not have the correct driver and refuses to see the drive to boot from.
Very tempted but would these go on a bigger sale during prime day ?
Got one, thank you, heat added!
Anyone know if can get adaptor cards that can take 2 of these to do a raid 0? I only have 1 PCIe 16x slot left!

Probably, since it's hovered round this price a while I would wait personally, if it doesn't fall again you pay the same price a few days later. Only way I could see it going up is if Amazon sell out and it defaults to a third party seller, who are always dearer (well 99%) but even then Amazon would probably restock within a few days....
