Link to the deal for the latest version of this which is ~£18 more and much improved:

Definitely worth paying the extra for the latest version, which is much closer to the Samsung NVME tier drives in performance. This model compares to some of the other cheap M2 drives, and is a brand name, so still decent.
Do you really need speeds faster than this? Can't think of many real world usage scenarios where you need it at the minute.
Is it suitable for laptops? Read somewhere that it gets too hot for latop.

If you've ever booted with a Samsung 960 m. 2 drive you won't be asking this question.

I have and it’s a marginal improvement at best over a decent SATA SSD.

I'm sure it's faster, but my SATA SSD boots in about 5-7 seconds. How much faster can it really be? Is booting in 3 seconds really a noticeable improvement?

Well I think somethings wrong there , coz I build't a ryzen system with a Samsung 960 evo and it blew me away, my main system is an i5 with a Samsung 850 evo sata.
We used to be talking getting a cup of coffee whilst a computer booted so makes no difference to me, 3 seconds or 5 seconds to boot a PC! I've got an Icore 7 8th Gen processor in a laptop with a WD PCie NVME SSD drive in and its fine, obviously for some gaming it makes a difference and those with a need or impatient?

I went from a i think q series Toshiba ssd, boots in around 3 seconds from pressing button to a super fast nvme drive, boots in around 3 seconds...

Benchmarks are Better with nvme mind.... Not convinced the money was worth it!, both large ssd's too so not like size results in worse performance with the nvme one
