Be aware, these QLC drives have a lot less endurance than their TLC or MLC counterparts. Intel rates the 512GB 660p at 100TBW. My previous favourite for value, the Adata SX8200 which can be had at CCL or Amazon for 100-110 pounds is rated for 320TBW. The new Corsair MP510 can do 800TBW on the 480GB model but that is more dear, costing upwards of 120 quid.

Light users will probably be ok with the 660p, but I count myself a moderate user, I don't do video editing or anything heavy. Mainly games and some media, but my previous drive had used some 30TB of writes in 9 months, so that would be nearly a third of the endurance rating of this Intel in under a year!

If you have a SSD, get Crystal Disk Info or some other software (even vendor specific ones that may come with your drive) and see how much you used and over how long a period. That might give you an idea what kinda user you are and how much to spend on a drive.

Voted hot
Hot! I've been waiting for this drive, but I want the 1TB version.

that said, if you write 27.38GB per day it will last you 10 years, by which time you can replace it at half the price

I bought the 1TB version of this from Ebuyer (faster than this 512GB version) and it's worked out well for storage for my Linux Steam games (currently 660GB used). If it's going to be used as your games drive, then don't worry about write endurance - you'll be doing a *lot* more reads than writes.

What I like about these QLC drives is that they're close to/the same price as "old school" SATA 3 SSDs, but with 3 times the performance.
The quality of these aren't great, just watched this video and it's really put me off
