my god.... excellent deal missed out though lol
Is it just me who's suspicious of storage devices that don't have a power-of-two size?
Be aware that this second hand M.2 card is SATA-based and has identical throughput to the 2.5" MX300 SSD (£85.99 new at Amazon). You can also find similar spec new M.2 cards around the same price point (though stock is limited at the moment).

This is not to be confused with NVMe M.2 cards, which offer significantly higher transfer rates.

Yes. Sadly 20% Off ends Before payday so offered it up. Worth keeping an eye on the 20% Off storage page as they do add to it.

Whoever bought it never even thanked me!!

yes like i said its not a pci express so wont be like 2gb read 1gb write.. it can only do sata speeds which still massively out performs a normal hdd

My point was it doesn't outperform a 2.5" SATA SSD. So unless, for some reason, you are restricted to only use an M.2 slot without NMVe capabilities, this isn't really a good deal.

If you're looking for performance you need NVMe. If you're looking to replace a mechanical drive you would get better value for money with a 2.5" SATA SSD. Add in the second hand, 30 day returns restriction and it's not hard to see this deal is to be avoided.
Anyone have an opinion on the Toshiba THNSN5256GPUK; 256GB M.2 2280 NVMe 1.1b. (1.5GiB/760MiB seq. read/write)

On the 2nd hand market it seems universally undervalued; perhaps because it's an OEM part (often pulled from Dell or Lenovo laptops) so doesn't have a base retail price to work off?

It's not a "30 day returns restriction". It's an additional 30 days no-quibble returns policy for warehouse deals items in addition to the normal amazon satisfaction guarantee received for normal "new" purchases.

I don't understand. According to the returns policy, you have a 14 day cancellation period and a 30 day (overlapping) voluntary return policy. Other than that, used products don't seem to come with any warranty.

It's also not 'no quibble' as the terms and conditions state "Please note that you must return each item in the same condition in which you received it. This means that new items must be returned new, unused and complete. Used items must not have any additional signs of use or damage."

Beyond that I don't see any promise of returns

It may also be "30 days" but it doesn't mean it becomes a restriction.

I wrote at more length in the main deal for the 20% discount on amazon warehouse deals.

Everything else that you state comes under statutory law no matter whether if for used or new sales. The fact that the item is "used" just comes under the description of the item such as it is coloured blue or has 3 dead pixels.

I explained this more thoroughly in the main thread for 20% discount on Amazon Warehouse Deals.

The no-quibble part means you could return it for whatever reason during 30 days unlike for other new sales. No explanation required. It could be exactly as described but you could return it because it did not fit your Feng Shui. It doesn't mean you could destroy it and just return the shattered pieces!

The one to go for is the Toshiba XG3 as it uses MLC and is rated for 2.5/1.5 Read/Write even for the 512GB drive whereas the XG4 is TLC and rated for 1.5/~1.0 Read/Write.
They are basically the OEM version of their high end retail drives for which they use the OCZ brand; I forget the model number.
They are very good value when you consider the XG3 is not far off the high end Samsung drives.
I ordered an XG3 from eBay but the guy was a bit clueless and sent me an XG4 but I got a full refund.
So make sure you buy from a decent seller if using eBay.

There are plenty of older laptops and tablets that only take M.2 SATA drives so that is clearly what these are aimed at.
You wouldn't usually use SATA M.2 in a desktop unless it's maybe a NUC sized device.
Simple really.

The deal's stone cold now so I am really not wasting any more time on this. Sorry.
