A good price for what is, on paper at least, a ridiculously fast drive. Sequential reads of up to 1,800 megabytes and sequential writes of up to 560 megabytes per second (MB/s) Note that it's the M.2 interface, so you need a compatible motherboard.

OK, but not THAT fast. Not that you'd notice any difference anyway,

£350/tb=cold, no matter how fast.
A good deal these days is in the region of £160/tb.

Sorry, didn't spot the form factor - ignore my previous comment.

Great deal if you're looking for a solid, reliable M.2 SSD.

I really want a new 250GB SSD but this is just a bit overkill for me. If anyone can recommend something a bit more within a mid-tier range, I'd be grateful.

Any sata 600 ssd then ..

Sustained write speed is ~300MB/sec which is about 10% more than you manage with SATA 2.

It's a fairly new budget consumer drive so too early to say if it's reliable just because its Intel.

Cost per gig is always higher on a nvme drive....because it's not a SATA drive, so comparing them on that one thing alone is largely silly.

Looking at its performance though...it's not a great nvme drive: anandtech.com/sho…/10 - and that's the 512gb version.

Don't really see the point of the 600p range. Not good enough to be an upgrade to nvme, not cheap enough to warrant not just going to a normal SATA drive / m.2 (not nvme).

This is a budget nvme drive. Much faster than sata but slower than other nvme drives. Price reflects this.

It's actually slower than many SATA drives for sustained writes (this is 300GB/sec once the SLC cache is full) and in everyday usage it's not going to be noticeably faster in many cases.

...I meant one on offer (i.e. a recommendation on a good offer).

If you're happy with a SATA drive, then there's the Crucial MX300 275GB SSD at £67 from Amazon amazon.co.uk/dp/…5O/
