These are really great prices especially for the performance they offer. The 1TB drive offers the best performance numbers and best £/GB and is the one I'm looking to get

  • 256GB = Read 3090 / Write 1050 (MB/s) £37.40
  • 512GB = Read 3400 / Write 2000 (MB/s) £60.19
  • 1TB = Read 3400 / Write 3000 (MB/s) £101.46
  • 2TB = Read 3400 / Write 2750 (MB/s) £240.69

To get these prices you need to apply the 14% voucher as shown on the product page.

Silicon Power A80 512GB model is slightly faster and cheaper on Amazon.


Same drive. Both use Phison E12 reference card.

Pioneer/Corsair/Seagate/Team Group/MyDigitalSSD/Addlink NVMe card brands use exac same Phison E12 reference card. Only sticker is changed between them. Buy the cheapest card with best warranty. They all perform equally.

BTW Pioneer NVMe 2tb is £224.99 @Amazon UK and 512GB £59.99/256GB £39.99

Does same reference card mean identical end product? Couldn't you have different build qualities, quality control, etc?

They all make by same ODM. They bulk buy and slap their sticker plus price tag. They all use the same firmware.

Check anadtech review for Seagate Firecuda 510 and Corsair MP510.

Whats the best way to clone my laptop 128GB m.2 drive to this?

Macrium Reflect (free) + external hard drive to hold the image.

Macrium Reflect (free) + external hard drive to hold the image.


How would I restore the image to the new drive? Would I need an enclousure or can you create a bootable drive with Macrium Reflect to restore the image?
Can anyone recommend a fast and reliable external enclosure for this?

I think you would need some form of enclosure or perhaps a second m.2 slot on your motherboard to do this.

Most enclosures are limited to 10Gbps. So read/write speed limited to around 1000MB/s. Get a good aluminium enclosure as these things run hot. Mine hit 65-70C (with heat sink attached) if I start coping lots of data. Without heat sink these will hit 85-90C and start throttling.

Unfortunately I don't have any experience with enclosures for M.2 SSDs. From what I can see Thunderbolt 3 enclosures are priced extortionately but the somewhat decently priced enclosures are only USB 3.1gen2 (10Gbps) and will be a bottleneck for the SSDs.

At £25.79 after applying a 40% voucher, this is probably the best one available: amazon.co.uk/dp/…7D/

It is 10Gbps, has 5 star reviews and supports NVMe

That's inconvenient, is there any free/inexpensive software that can backup to a usb drive and then restore from it?

Not sure to be honest, sorry. I guess you could clone it to a different drive (sata/external USB HDD) and then clone it again to the new drive.
Hi there. Currently I have a 500GB Samsung 970 EVO but I am thinking of switching to a 1TB version of one of these. I paid £89 for my 970 EVO about 5 months ago but now I can buy a 1TB version of the Sabrent drive for £101. So my idea is to sell the 970 EVO on eBay for about £80 to £85 and replace it with this. Would that be a good idea?

Yeah that's what i'm looking for but the software would need to be USB bootable in order to restore it to the new drive once the new drive has been installed.
I naiively thought that this would work in my Dell Inspiron 17 7779, to replace a SK hynix SC308 SATA 128GB, but it didn't, so I guess it's going back to Amazon.
Having now done a bit more research, it's probably something to do with putting an M-keyed card (Gen3 x4 Interface) in an B-keyed (SATA) slot.

Ah, yeah. It's a bit confusing especially because they're really similar. The board/laptop has to specifically support PCIe/NVMe with the M key

Can't see it getting "that" much cheaper in a hurry so purchased a 1tb. Be a nice upgrade on my existing 1tb SSD SATA that will be moved to storage duties!

And definitely a nice upgrade to my 240GB SSD SATA, I'll try to find a use for that
Couldn't get the voucher to work no matter what I did, changed PCs, different browsers... Annoying. As soon as I clicked on the voucher link it changed to 'how to claim' with no indication it was in my basket. Went through to near - end, no voucher appeared.
Frustrating.
Can anyone enlighten me?

Try using the app? It's there for me. You just have to tick the box and at the end of the checkout it will confirm the discount, I believe
