Good price if you can live with this drive being slower than other brands. The Corsair model can be had for £30 more with faster speeds.

But these are still about 4 times faster than a SATA SSD drive right?
Looking at TH review of this drive, it seems like it doesnt perform much better than a 2.5" SSD over SATA interface.
"The P1 scored as low as some SATA SSDs during our PCMark 8 testing, while the Intel 660p was nearly twice as fast. The Crucial P1 also displayed SATA-like performance in SYSmark and lagged the competition in the responsiveness test."

However, if you have an M.2 slot (eg on a laptop), and need 1TB, then this may still be a decent price, so long as you are not buying without outright speed in mind.
It'll still hammer a HDD in outright transfer speed and IOPS.

Link to the corsair model?

How slow is this compared to the other brands? From what I have researched the difference isn't really noticable unless you're doing workstation tasks with large files.

This YouTube video might be worth a watch...

(If you like to watch loading screens LOL!).


If you dont want to watch, then the TLDR is that NVMe and SSD over SATA are still very comparable in todays world for many tasks, and both are a leap beyond spinning hard drives.

i have a Samsung 970 500gb, honestly i cant notice much improvement over my old ssd during normal use, if you intend to copy large amounts of data regularly than yes a faster drive helps for most wont notice anything
Stupid question alert (and the answers probably no), would one of these fit in my motherboard Gigabyte GA-H81M-S2PV where the PCIe x16 slot is taken up with my graphics card?

You are right, it only takes 2.5"SSD

That board doesn't seem to have a M.2 slot, so no afraid not.
Doh! One can only dream. Thanks

Hey Aileenbo, this article might be worth a read for you:
performance-computer.com/lea…ed/
This image here from the article also shows you how the m.2 interface is quite physically different to the standard PCI-express (PCIe x16) slot.
You are correct in one way, that a drive plugged in to an M.2 slot can use the PCIe lanes to communicate, at least electrically, but not using the physical slot. These drives are NVMe. It's also possible to have drives plugged in to an M.2 slot which use the SATA lanes to communicate. Whilst many M.2 slots can use either type, it's always best to check.


Finally, if you really were set on using M.2 drives in a computer which otherwise doesnt let them connect, its quite easy to buy a plug in card which actually does connect in to the PCIexpress slots, and the M.2 drives then sit on those boards; however, you'd have to be very clear about the benefits of doing such, as had been made clear above, just buying a 2.5" SATA SSD is quite enough for many people.


Hope this helps!

Considering said Intel 660 is one sale for nearly the same price, that's obviously the better deal then.

Reading reviews on the Intel 660 M.2 people complaining about slow transfer speeds, any intel 660 M.2 owners out there ?

It is slow for an NVMe drive, but faster than any SATA drive and faster than the Crucial here. "Slow" is relative. Personally, I'd challenge anyone to actually notice the difference between SATA and NVMe, let alone the smaller difference to the 660.

Thanks for feedback.Appreciated.
Speed of any disk is relative to how it is being used, copying small files will be a lot quicker than large files.

I copied 4 files around 14GB total size and these are the speeds, remember this is only one example.
All disks had plenty of room for the files.

1 from SSD to USB stick (Sandisk Ulta)
2 from Intel 660p to Crucial MX500
3 from SSD to intel 660p NVMe M.2

so looks like intel 660p maintain speeds around 500MB, why people always say it drops to 50MB?

Because as soon as its saturated the SLC cache performance absolutely plummets.
I discovered this copying Fallout 4 (about 95GB) to one from a Crucial MX100, started out at more or less the read speed of the MX100, and then stumbled to 80-120MB/s after a while. and the response time became atrocious as well.

Not experienced the Crucial drive that this deal is focused on, but my go-to cheaper NVME drive for the moment is the Corsair MP510, which seems pretty close to the 970 Evo Plus for basically the same money as a Crucial P1 or 660P

How does the Corsair model compare with the WD Blue? I understand it is SATA 3 but my laptop is confirmed by the manufacturer to run SATA 3. NVMe has been reported to work by users but one told me there is a windows update bug where it cannot deal with updates.

And I can't understand why the WD Blue is pricier being SATA M.2

Can you please tell me how does this compare the Sabrent Rocket deal posted for a few quid more at 101 today.
