Lucky 30 seconds, change price
Damn
I was checking prices on these earlier, still around the £100 mark. So delighted to pick one of these up for £67.15 using my mastercard promotion £10. Thanks OP.
Excellent price. Heat added.
Bought the 512 version last week for £54 so that’s going back..cheers
Wow, what a price! This is basically the same price I payed for the 500 GB MX500 a little over a year ago and that was a good deal at the time. Less than £80 for a 1TB NVMe SSD. Madness
This seems to get a lot of poor reviews based on it's loss of performance over time. As good as the price is, I'm inclined to avoid this one.

This. Think I will wait it out and see if proper nvme drives get close to this.

This seems to have a lot of drawbacks and is a fair bit slower than even the mx500 in some tasks.
anyone use this for ps4, notice any difference in load times for games etc?
just got Samsung 1TB delivered now for £129.....

I guess I will buy 2 of this then Samsung can go back tmr

The 970 evo is the fair better drive though.

Yes, that is true. I would like to keep it if i can use its' max speed. I just need it in an USB 3.1 enclosure which gives Max. R/W speed of 1,000 MB/s

It's the wrong form factor for consoles.
moneybanks1415/07/2019 20:45

external case?


Unless the PS4 has a TB3 connector this will be limited by USB even if the PS4 has 3.1 Gen 2.
just bought a intel 660 yesterday from ebuyer for £90

don't know if its worth returning to get this

If files above 50 GB are not copied it should be ok.
Also if temps go more than 80 degrees it starts throttling (as with most of the nvme's).
As long as the above 2 scenarios are are not met, this is a cracking deal and good daily regular driver and also good for gaming.

This is also my approach, I bought an Intel 660p 2TB for the same reason. But this one is a better deal for the price, I’m so tempted to get it.
MasterAK15/07/2019 21:35

Yes 3D Nand is better than QLC



3D NAND refers to how the cells are stacked (manufactured). This cells in this drive are still QLC.

If you look at the 1 star reviews, once the SLC (whatever) cache is full (30-40GB) the write speed drops to about 14%.

No one copies large files all the time, for most people, these are fine and very fast, for game loading I doubt the tlc drives would do much better, maybe the new PCIe 4.0 drive 5GBs write speed would make any significant difference, as steam drive no problem, maybe for professional work get better

Mate you are quoting the 500 gb variant review.
This deal, 1 tb has more than twice the buffer capacity
Theoretically even if the files are more than 50 GB this should be able to work fine. Also the endurance cycle are considerably higher and this should last long.
The sequential writes are also double.
Not the best nvme out there but still at this price point it's better than a sata SSD.

How is that picture even relevant, it's copying from an 850 Evo to a new volume, even if the new volume is NVME it's going to be limited by the speed of the 850 which looking at the transfer rate on that picture is about right.
My motherboard doesn't support these drives but I'm looking to upgrade soon. Can I get this and put it in some sort of SATA adapter in the meantime and use it as a boot drive? Thanks for any advice!

Still pointless, just get an SATA SSD instead.


Link to a known brand 1TB SATA SSD for less than £77.15?

I think this is not possible as this one uses the PCIe interface and what you are asking is to be converted to a sata interface.
The only way I can see you using this as a drive (not confident as a boot drive) is by having a PCIe card installed into the computer and interfacing this drive through it.
Please do let me know if i am mistaken.

Edit: Link to the type of card I am talking about

You could, but the cost of the caddy would negate the price of this M.2, and therefore you would be better off just buying a 2.5" 1TB SSD.
Edit: Actually, as the guy above said, you can get a PCIe card for this (like ebay item number 183771866539) and use that in your PC.

Thanks to you and the other dude. I should have mentioned my next PC is going to be USFF so I may not have room for an SSD but I'm in urgent need of storage - stuck with a 120GB SSD right now. I just don't want to buy an SSD only to not be able to put it in my next system.

You've both given me food for thought, thanks!

sorry for the dumb question (maybe) but is this cache limitation of 50gb theorised per file, or per copy. if im backing up 200gb of pictures does the cache limit the transfer speed or wont it make a difference as the individua;l pictures are all 10mb ish. or does any cache limitation apply if the single file is >50gb (or 40gb etc), thanks

I am pretty sure it's like massive single container files like UHD video files and zipped files.
I might be wrong please do correct me.
