Is this a better deal when you can buy Silicon Power A80 512GB NVMe for £57.99?

Silicon Power and Samsung both use TLC nand. Pretty much the same warranty period. Samsung got slight edge in performance but that's only notice if your benchmarks the card. In real life you'll never going to notice this.

Samsung becomes Apple in SSD market. Charging more for nothing.

Silicon Power based on Phison E12 reference NVMe card and Corsair MP510/Seagate Firecuda/ Sabrent/addlink/Team Group all used the same reference card with default firmware.

Here's review for 512gb Team Group Phison E12 card.

I'd go with this personally amazon.co.uk/dp/…4S/
£66.50 and great numbers that should help in some situations. And if you don't have need of an NVME drive at all, then get a regular SSD and save some money and get more storage.
Samsung SSDs are poor value but they have a reputation so people overpay.

Well their warranty on Ssd's is second to none so I would more than gladly pay the difference between the silicon power, also think of resale value who is going to want to buy your second hand silicon power? While there will always be buyers for Samsung drives, and if anything we're to go wrong what are your chances of getting a firmware update out of silicon power?

I only voted this cold as its been cheaper before and the 500 Gb ones are just 20 or so pounds more.

OK... Not got much knowledge of nvme/m2 etc.... But I want to upgrade from 256 nvme to 1tb.

I have a Lenovo Ideapad 530S-14ARR 14" AMD Ryzen 5 Laptop.
Do I HAVE to buy nvme??
What options have I got? Don't mind losing a few seconds on boot time. Only use for half hour per day.

Can I upgrade to

I don't know if you HAVE to, but from what I could see on their product page they come with an NVME drive... what do you do with it? cos if you just want more general storage and don't need SSD speed for the bulk storage of files, then you could just buy an external HDD. If you need the speed of an ssd, personally think you'd be better off with buying an SSD and slapping it in an enclosure, or getting a USB 3,0 to SATA adaptor and plugging it in.

Fair point mate.
Thanks for the reply.

Yet another external will be much cheaper, much bigger, and save me the hassle of using software to transfer/backup current 250gb to new nvme/ssd.

Just not as sleek 😏
