Answered your own question. It needs a M.2 socket.

1TB is the sweet spot for speed and capacity then.
I have the 1TB and have to say that I am extremely impressed with it!
Been this price for a bit now, hoping it drops a little more :-)
Very decent price

Did You had any problems with throttling?Any concerns with temperatures?

This is Phison E12 based reference drive. Corsair/Seagate/Silicon Power and numerous others use exact same drive with different branding labels.

I got Corsair branded drive and with thin heat sink (inside laptop) it idle around 50°C and ATTO or CDM benchmark push it to mid 60°C

I manage to throttle it after doing back to back ATTO benchmark 4 times and then it hit the 70°C. When that happens performance degrade by 50%. However in a desktop with plenty of air circulation, ssd will not hit that mark.

It will mate, been bit cheaper than this but I do expect more in coming days as they do % discount time to time over the price.

Have the 1TB version too, instant boot up of Windows is always nice to see. Would recommend.

I’ve got the 1tb version and it’s lightning fast, way better value than an evo
Never heard of this brand
I have a Lenovo t480s with 256GB. Would this replace the drive? Is it quite easy to do?

Intel drive is much worse, this will stomp all over it.

Based on this, maybe better to go with the Intel qlc drive? Specifically for that laptop with only the 2x PCIe speeds. Intel likely have better warranty and support in the unlikely event of an issue with the drive

I have the 256GB version as the o/s drive in my machine. Very fast, but also note that write perf drops to 50% once drive gets to 80% full or so. Dunno how common this is, but it's still faster than SATA at that rate.

Any reason why particular sizes differ?

Parallelization. The storage is split into sized chunks where read/write operations can occur simultaneously. Don't know why for sure why the 2TB drive is a bit slower than the 1TB one though.
Wow better read write speeds than my Samsung 970

Be wary of this if also using a GPU, can also slow down PCIe lanes to your GPU and hence affect gaming performance.

BIOS also usually won't allow boot from PCI, from everything I've read, so for me this would completely defeat the purpose.
I'm using a PCI to m2 adapter as my onboard m2 slots weren't up to speed, had no issues with gaming or booting up
Can anyone suggest an external USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt 2 caddy for this? Would like to boot my 2012 iMac from an external ssd rather than open it up to replace the 5400 spinner...

I don't have a suggestion but I've been considering building one of these too. From what I've learned you definitely want a design with some decent heatsink contact as it may get rather hot (maybe not so much if you can't max out the speed over USB 3.0).
It may even be possible to find a small enclosure with a built in fan, as this does not need to be portable.
Please report back if you find something that fits the bill.

Exactly what I plan to do... I picked up this hotukdeals.com/dea…752 picked it up for £17 I think on an offer after this deal. Not tested it as of yet as waiting on a good deal on a M2 drive
I was considering this SSD what's the best of the two the Sabrent or Crucial.

How does this compare to an EVO?
I’ve had this same one for a few months. Been totally happy with it.
Can any1 help, what is the highest capacity I can get on the M.2?

Temps have been between 29 and 32 degrees. These are the temps from Hard Disk Sentinel and it’s in a Corsair 460x case with all fans on full speed.

Haven’t experienced any throttling.

Crystal disk results are pretty much the speeds rated.

Hope this helps.

Sure does.Cheers.
Careful, it's cheap for a reason. A Samsung SSD will out perform for gaming.
