not going to be a massive saving is it... chepeast 2TB NVMe i've seen is the Intel 660p for £207
don't see why this deal is going cold, maybe people think it's a regular spinning disk not SSD ?

I get 100MB/sec from my USB 3 SATA disk. This does 500 but fair enough if you really "need" 1000MB+/sec, I don't.
Will I get nvme speeds via USB 3.0? Started to wondering should I cancel my order

But there are new usb c connectors coming out with Thunderbolt 3 or 4 speed . Be safe and buy nvme ssd and just buy adapter as you need . This is not even a good price so cold .

3.1 you would. 3.0 no.

3.0 = 625MB/sec
3.1 = 1250MB/sec
Ok so I have USB 3.0 in my laptop and I'm fed up with time it takes to transfer 4k movies over to my pendrive to watch it on my oled tv (b9, don't know what USB is there). For this purpose only is NVMe disk much better then this SSD?

Connect laptop directly to TV with hdmi port on laptop . No need to transfer to usb drive . Lots of usb c ( if there is usb c port on your laptop ) to hdmi adapters very cheap on Amazon . Usb A 3.0 to hdmi Adapters are there are well but can be laggy as using old Displaylink

Can't really as have nowhere to put my laptop on (could buy a 3 meters hdmi really but I have another TV in the bedroom and watch films there too so don't really want to travelling with my 17" laptop everywhere )

Hdmi cables come in various lengths like 20 metres etc . I don't know source of your movie download to laptop . Apple TV, Google Chromecast Ultra, can be used as well . I use Powerline internet adapters to carry internet to electric socket and then use Apple TV/ Nvidia Shield/ XBox / Firestick as required. Applev tv / shield / Xbox can download movie from Internet at fast speed .

have you considered getting a NAS and hooking your TV up to the network and just streaming stuff to the TV instead of copying files? I'm assuming if you have a 4K TV then it's a smart TV and thus can run stuff like Plex? It's not so complicated to setup i'd be willing to explain it if you like.

I can imagine copying everything you want to watch to a USB disk will get a bit tiring at times. My old "dumb" TVs have Amazon fire TV connected to them which I run Kodi / Plex on and my 4K TV has plex built in but also is connected to an Nvidia shield for streaming over the network.... i don't copy anything to my TVs.
What would be the life time of this drive as my ssd only lasted 3 years before it die

A SATA SSD only lasted 3 years?!?
What were you doing with it???

A flash drive lasting only 3 years is much more believable.

I think roo much data went thru it. It was 5% life left and then a few months later it just stopped showing up in bios

I have a firestick just to run Kodi but was trying to connect it via WiFi to my PC without a luck. Just had a quick read about Plex - so if I would download it on my PC and TV I can then access my PC library on my TV? Can it be done the same with Kodi as I already have it?

I'm not British so I use services in my native language so things like Apple TV or Amazon are useless. From the other side because of geolocation restrictions I can't get full benefits of my paid services so that is why I need to download a 4K movie to watch it (in my native language and not in English). Since I remember I was using USD drives to do it

To much hassle to ran hdmi cables behind my walls but I have never heard about Powerline adapters, is the Internet speed at the same level or less? I connect all of mine devices via WiFi anyway but that is a great idea to have an Internet access in my garden house

Connect it just to your WiFi network, create a shared folder on your computer, then use Kodi to connect to that shared folder (I find it's best to find out what the IP of your computer is then connect to it like this in Kodi -> SMB \\YOURIP\sharedfolder, you can find out the IP by either typing "ipconfig" at a command prompt or going to Control Panel > Network and Internet and then clicking the blue link for your network card and choosing "status"). Then you can access your PC library on your TV yes. Yes it can be done with any version of Kodi including the one you already have yep...

I don't subscribe to any subscription services like Netflix or Amazon, but I still have the fire because it's a cheap media player, I just point it towards my own collection that I have on my NAS but a shared folder on a PC works just as well as a NAS does. The wife watches Russian TV a lot and we use some IPTV plugins and Youtube but we also have plenty of downloaded Russian TV/Movies that we watch on Kodi / Plex.

If you want me to walk you through it ... feel free to send me a PM and i'll explain it the best I can.
Thank you guys
