I was waiting for the Crucial MX500 to finally ship in M2 format, but it looks Amazon dropped the price of the 860EVO by around £15 overnight, so I decided to order this instead (which is comparable, if not better).

Price history from the Camels. Pricespy also confirms that it's the cheapest around:

Noice.
If I'm not mistaken, the 850 Evo was even and slightly better in areas than the MX500 so this will be better.

Not to say the MX500 is a bad drive of course, I just trust Samsung drives more
Looks like all the 850 Evo's have dropped in price.
Not worth it at this price nearly 50% above a std sata 2.5 inch drive , and for what ? saving a bit of cable clutter.
Save the £40 and go for std drive. Or spend a bit extra and get a nvme drive.
What's the length?

Sorry, but your comment doesn't make sense.

First of all, the price difference with the equivalent 2.5" models is nowhere near as you claim. For instance, the same drive in 2.5" SATA is just £10 less. The Crucial ones are similarly £10-20 less.
Secondly, what if you cannot fit a 2.5" drive at all, as is the case for several thin laptops or some NUCs.
Thirdly about the NVMe, just because you have an M.2 slot it doesn't automatically mean that it supports NVMe drives.

It's a 2280, so 80mm.

These are still premium priced , they will be cheaper, or there already are many cheaper drives, maybe not as good but 95% , for less money.
WD blue or mx300,mx500 are significantly cheaper.
