Another price drop on the latest OEM NVMe SSD from Samsung.

Outperforms the 960 Evo, and even the 960 Pro in mixed workloads.

I suspect this wont be supported by Samsung magician .. so no rapid and no firmware updates ...??
Prices are starting to change but I'm waiting for them to go sub £200 before I can stomach the disparity in price over SATA 2.5" versions.

You're right that it won't be supported by Samsung Magician. As for rapid mode, it's not needed (not even an option) with these super fast NVMe drives anyway.

Can you explain why please? I cant find the reason. I thought Samsung Magician supports all Samsung SSD's.

Hope GwanGy doesn't mind me answering for him, but because it's an OEM drive.

Oh, ok thanks.

£225+ on eBay.
Exciting deal
The PM981 is a seriously fast drive.

If you're looking for a 1Tb drive then a Samsung SATA SSD is still likely to set you back £250+... so for the performance gains this drive offers over a SATA drive you're not really paying that much more.

I currently have a SATA SSD as that's all my PC supports, but if I could have an M.2 NVMe drive I'd be all over this.
Fed up with a string of SATA SSDs in my machine (alongside my existing small gen 1 polaris NVME drive) - time to simplify I think

This is close enough my preferred price so I am in - thanks OP!

It depends.

amazon.co.uk/Kin…031

189.99 for a kingston.

amazon.co.uk/Cru…ssd

203.99 for a corsair (MX500, quite good!)

amazon.co.uk/Sam…ssd

268 for the 860 and 259 for the 850.
I always found "rapid" a nice addition ....
Samsung PM981 vs WD Blue 1TB 3D NAND SSD M.2? Really debating which one to buy and I know the Samsung SSD is NVMe but how much of a difference in Read and Writes with both these drives? Is it worth paying the extra?

Big difference in reads and writes, but depends on your use case. For general use, things will load slightly faster, but you'll most likely barely notice it.

The price has gone back up to £310.99 now.

Expiring.
