Nice, 2TB are really quite affordable now and these are excellent sata drives

Great drive, uses TLC and has 2GB of DDR3.

Got one of these last year at a much more expensive price than this. No regrets, amazing upgrade.
I'd hang fire and wait for the Sabrent Rocket to drop down to this price again. A traditional SATA drive like this one offers only around 1/7th the performance of a modern NVME drive, and that makes a huge difference in disk-heavy workloads.

You're assuming everyone has a free M.2 NVMe slot, which many will not.

Also in real world usage you won't notice any difference, this is coming from someone who has a Samsung NVMe drive & SSD.


Don't get me wrong there will be a minority that are doing tasks where drive speed is very important such as 4K video editing but for most of us it makes little difference unless your running a benchmark.

Gaming isn't really a great example of anything apart from GPU power. I'm not really sure if 4K video editing is either - assuming compression, data rates are practically trivial in comparison to the bottlenecks imposed by the CPU and GPU, and you're really only looking at disk IO bottlenecks when you're moving from one drive to another.

Where you absolutely will see a huge difference is in anything which makes heavy use of your storage, as I said in my previous post. For me, the biggest example of that is with Photoshop and Lightroom, where they'll easily generate temporary files far in excess of 100GB, absolutely caning the drive in the process. It's in those circumstances where NVME outperforms old SATA by several x.

On the point of M2 slots, PCI-E riser cards cost only a fiver.

Riser cards not great for my laptop though

Pretty sure most people will be looking at this for OS and games and not heavy workloads..... I would think you are the exception rather then the norm. For most people this is a great OS and gaming Steam or Epic Library.

I have 5TB total worth of NVME drives and 20 TB Sata SSDs scattered over 3 different rigs. My needs are different as well.

I didn't realise they did SATA SSDs that were so small

Can't see this deal any more.
Another seller has popped up at £190 but they are new. Wouldn't risk it.
Come on Amazon, price match!

Most people looking to spend £200 on a 2TB SSD are an exception to the norm, too. Point is, if you're going to spend fairly heavily on a device, unless you need this right now (which I presume is not the case, else you would've already bought this drive), it'd be foolish not to wait for the same-price device which offers up to 7x the performance to go on offer again.
