Cheapest it's ever been on Amazon
A bit off topic, but does anyone know of any good deals on a 40/42mm M.2? I see all these good deals for M.2's but never on those. I have a slim notebook that only takes those sizes which is frustrating.

Good deal btw
Good price. Heat from me. This might sound obvious but also remember that this is SATA SSD and not NVMe. So while it is m.2 form factor, it is no faster than a standard SSD. There is a WD Black NVMe for about £77
The price for an M2 is good so in my case it will allow the 2.5" ssd caddy to be removed and the battery replaced with a larger size. So there are benefits to this over an SSD. So based solely on a price for an M2 this is a good deal.

If you dont need the extra battery space then I would prefer a standard 2.5" SSD as it is more versatile, and have considerably longer life than this - ie the black version of this has a claimed enduranceof 80tb. The Crucial MX500 and Samsung Evo have at least double that.

It... should be obvious, but there's a genuine lack of realisation among a decent number of folks that M.2 has more than 1 interface style. Still a good price, but, as said, this is basically no different to a regular 2.5" box sata SSD with sata cable and power connector in speeds, it's just a good bit tidier.

Some laptops have a slot for this as a drive option, makes for a very strong choice, M.2 sata SSD and a big, slow mechanical in the drive bay.
Very good price but as pointed out this is just a SATA SDD spec not full NVMe. WD Black v2 is significantly faster if you have NVMe support on your device.
