Great price for the Pro model, Evo is normally this price. Retail boxed too.

£280 elsewhere is cheapest I could find.

2% Quidco.

A very good price.

Clueless people voting cold.
Great price, not sure it's worth it in a gaming rig though.

No, from experience it isn't. If you're editing though it's absolutely a game changer.
not sure if to trust ebay seller (even with 100%) but here's one for 209 ebay.co.uk/itm…538?hash=item2838b01c62:g:VRsAAOSwC8FZbPGU

never been cheaper on amazon though

It offers no tangible benefit for gaming.

Give one example of a tangible benefit for gaming.

I'm fairly sure that you don't know what tangible means.

He just said there is no tangible benefit for gaming, so how do you expect him to give one?

Very well, it offers no (tangible or intangible) benefits to gaming.

Happy now Mr zizzles?

I think he is looking for examples of tangibility in gaming regardless.

OK I'll bite.
Mechanical keyboards and gaming mice provide clear tangible benefits in gaming.
You could argue that GPU Performance does too even though you can't physically touch it per se but you can definitely FEEL the difference. The same goes for other performance related fields eg. FPS, refresh rate, responsiveness, load times *cough*SSD*cough*.

You better not think about whether or not gaming headsets provide a tangible benefit or not. "Can you touch the sound, is it touching me, does that count? DOES IT? "
Ahhhhhhhh. *head explodes*. (we can hope).

Now crawl back from whence you came.

No, that's not what he said.
Read it again, take your time, don't be embarrassed about moving your lips if it helps you.


Ordered last night and has been posted out this morning. Next day was sadly an extra £10 so choose 1-3 days for £1

Showing as more than 50 in stock.



Given when I posted it was showing "this item is no longer available", it's interesting that they've suddenly found more of these - presumably "clearance" and "last few available" mean something else to BT.

Still tempted to swap out my 960 Evo for this.

Been holding out on buying one and glad I did now. Was hoping to see them pop up on prime day but no m.2s got listed. And costing the same as the equivalent 500gb evo i just had to buy it.
Not sure why this has been expired as it's still showing in stock at £219.99. Bargain price, would order one if I could justify needing one!

tangible doesn't only mean touch based, sure its the main definition and origin but not the only one
if you googled better than at the moment you first got confused you'd see that it has other meanings such as real/clear etc etc
loading a game map faster is a tangible benefit not one id pay 200+quid for though

Went with the HP XG3 THNSN5512GPU7 (OCZ RD400) MLC (equivelent speeds to 950 Pro) off ebay for £166 which supports a 4096 block size (configurable using the OCZ SSD Utility via USB boot disk) and works natively in Hackintosh. Samsung use 512 block size which isn't configurable and needs a patched NVME driver which sounds like a hassle.
