£70 now, missed that one :(


The form factor is truly amazing. I have one in my nuc too and the whole i3 computer is only about 2"×2"×1" 8)


too late back to 70 bux :(


Great price if you're after a 256GB.


Any SSD would be better than a mechanical 5400 hard drive, for sure. Do it, you won't regret it.

I just tried at my local. Initially the clueless shop rep said no to Maplin and no to Amazon at which point yes you do match Amazon. She called the manager over. He said no to Maplin because they are closing down. I asked why is that relevant. Then he said they're slashing their prices. Then asked if they had it in stock. I showed him the product page which showed the item in stock and available to collect. He then said they don't match Maplin and pointed to a sign behind the counter showing a bunch of retailers at which point I asked why he asked all those questions a few moments ago to which he ummed and arred not giving any real excuse. In the end I got the Amazon price match. And they wonder why business is declining. This isn't the first issue I've had at a Currys/PC World and I'm sure it won't be the last but you won't see me shedding any tears when they inevitably go under like the Maplins they refuse to price match.


On their site, they're not specified but the shop assistant didn't bat an eyelid


Yep, I know that. Won't make a noticeable difference as a game storage device.


860 is Sata and, this is nvme


For two pounds more this is on OCUK with FC5 right now. Or you can do that price matching thing. I might get the 500GB 860 Evo from CCL for £133 though.

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.


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.


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


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 (highfive)

I think I'm best off getting a USB 3 enclosure with cheap SSD inside.


Unsurprisingly Apple uses a proprietary format PCIe SSD so upgrading is as difficult as it gets. Using off the shelf parts requires no courage which is why Apple chooses to make their own interface standard that nobody else in the world uses. Therefore the only way to upgrade your storage would be to either buy a specific drive designed for macbooks like you linked on the other thread or perhaps buy one that someone has removed from a similar model macbook.


Thanks for the info. Do you know what the specific features I should be looking for are?

Thanks for the info bud! I ain’t to worried about using another m.2 as I don’t really need the storage but I just have one laying around. I would rather not use it if it drops the lanes on my gpu! Even if it doesn’t really effect performance! Thanks again


I have the same board, the M2 slot is limited to 10Gb/s, I used the adaptor in the 2nd GPU slot which is gen 3 x4 and it gives full read and write speeds but does indeed drop the first PCIE slot down to 8x but in the real world it has very little effect on limiting the 1080 of which I have also, I get 2700/1300 speed which isn't far off the max, on Samsung Magician benchmark I get full read/write speed.


I have a cross hair hero vi so already have a Samsung EVO plugged into its m.2 slot. I no I could use this adapter and get another m.2 but I don’t understand the pcie Lane useage? Would this throttle my gpu? (1080) down to 8lanes? Confused


Thanks purchased. Although re-stock is 19th.

You get Far Cry with the EVO 860, which is a bit cheaper, but not NVMe.


So what happens if I want to return the ssd but I've redeemed the game...


in the market for a new SSD and also a farcry 5, but don't much fancy spending 200quid on a 500gb drive when you can pick up a 1tb SSD for a few quid more. Appriciate that this is prob faster though.... are there any other drives which are including FC5?


The video in the orignal post shows what real world difference NVMe can make. I think it's an improvement, but I agree with you, nothing massive. Nothing like moving from a HD to a SSD. The reason why I bought it is because I needed a bit more space, and I couldn't turn away the boost in performance. For £20-30 more, I could have got a 1tb mx500. Which I might do in the near future to replace my mechanical drive? As my main drive though, there was no way I was going to pass on an m.2 NVMe. It's available for a decent price, I was even going to get 256 at least. Far Cry 5 won't be lost on me either, I played and enjoyed the last 3 of them.


I have this as my C-Drive and an 850 Evo as a second. There is no difference in reality. If I ran some benchmark tool I'm sure this would say it's faster, but I don't notice it. Windows 10 boots in about 5 seconds (after BIOS) with this for me, but I wouldn't 'upgrade' to this from a decent SSD.

You must be talking about different model, 7570 always comes with gpu and ssd. Havent installed it yet , but I dont think there will be massive improvement in day to day tasks as ssd is plenty fast already, I bought it cause it was good deal and liked the idea of having the latest tech, it might make it age better.


Thats good to hear. Is it worth the expense to get for eg the NVMe 256GB at around £100? I also missed out putting an extra 20% code in my original purchase of the model without gpu&ssd. Maybe a chat with Dell may help.


No its regular m.2 SSD , but the slot supports NVMe.


Hi, is the 128GB M2 SSD a NVMe type?


Glad you got it working, I agree its a lovely machine, I am super happy with mine too although it costed me £160 more I still think is worth it. Now next step it to install 960 EVO NVME over the weekend and its gonna be top notch :D

These are still premium priced , they will be cheaper, or there already are many cheaper drives, maybe not as good but 95% , for less money. WD blue or mx300,mx500 are significantly cheaper.




Sorry, but your comment doesn't make sense. First of all, the price difference with the equivalent 2.5" models is nowhere near as you claim. For instance, the same drive in 2.5" SATA is just £10 less. The Crucial ones are similarly £10-20 less. Secondly, what if you cannot fit a 2.5" drive at all, as is the case for several thin laptops or some NUCs. Thirdly about the NVMe, just because you have an M.2 slot it doesn't automatically mean that it supports NVMe drives. It's a 2280, so 80mm.


What's the length?


Not worth it at this price nearly 50% above a std sata 2.5 inch drive , and for what ? saving a bit of cable clutter. Save the £40 and go for std drive. Or spend a bit extra and get a nvme drive.

Surely the question is whether spending 75% more will give you a noticeable speed increase. For some, absolutely, but judging from reviews for the majority the gains are minimal most of the time. So poor value for the majority but a great deal for the minority. That still makes it a great deal in my eyes even though I have no interest in this as I'd rather buy a 2TB SATA SSD which you can get for a similar price if you shop around. Voted hot even though the OP is a bit needy.


You don't understand the difference between "want" and "need". Please study English language and come back. I'm going to stop feeding the troll now.


Flawed logic mate. You can justify spending silly money on whatever you want, (It's your money) but please don't have a go and make ridiculous analogy that doesn't actually work.

Got mine today very pleased with it. I use it an os drive keep the games an apps separate on another sata ssd.


Which is why I’d have such things as games, apps, etc. on a secondary drive. 256Gb for a boot drive, system essentials, utilities, etc. is probably excessive in all reality, but at this price, I may well my a couple for my old Mac Pro just as fast storage on a slot-in card I’m getting.


Not anymore in my opinion. Especially when games now take 30+gb. Some few descent games and some heavy programs and you see yourself on a brink of no space. 500gb these day is enough IMO


Oh my gosh! I wish my motherboard was compatible, curse you z77 chipset!!


Only if you deal with big files a lot, day to day most people won't notice a difference over even a SATA SSD.

To put it another way...he was both right and wrong. He said nobody in their right mind would put a SATA drive in an M.2 slot - I've gave reasons why they would. You, on the other hand, were just wrong. I've already explained why.


You are off on a tangent, reflect on what the OP @ITMA posted here as a deal, it is £68 for a Green branding WD, meaning it is a slower unit, no point in you stating 6X anything to make a counter-point, he is right and wrong, against @malhal Critical reason why that you were unreasonable and that you created fake news and allegation (he is right and wrong) against @malhal :- @malhal said ""SSDs are already low energy." Say this is applied to mean all SSDs in the world. This is 100% accurate and true (compared to hard disks). He is not wrong. You chose a specific product in this entire family of all SSDs, the Samsung Evo 960 at 6X, and said he is both right and wrong! You shouldn't choose a specific item in a huge family of products and say a person is both right and wrong for a statement about a general characteristic of a family of products. (It is a universal truth that in a family of products, faster speeds always use more energy than slower speed. That's the principle of thermodynamics.) QED.


Far from it...I'm comparing to one of the fastest consumer NVMe drives using not only facts but also personal experience. I run the Samsumg Evo960 in my own rig and it runs very got compared to my legacy SSD drives. it also uses more power. http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/product/consumer/960evo/ You'll see it typically uses 5.3 Watts of power, around double this green drive. It also uses 40mW at idle, which is 33% more than this Green drive. In comparison, this Green drive runs both cooler and uses less power - exactly what I claimed it would in comparison to an NVMe drive that runs 6x faster. The Black drive to which you compare, presumably to try and prove an invalid argument, does not run 6x faster. It's slow and some 30% slower than the Evo960. It's not comparable in any way but still uses MORE power than this green drive, so I'm not sure what you are trying to prove. Let's summarise those stats: 1) WD Green 540MB/s M.2 SATA SSD 240GB - 80mW 2) WD Black 2050MB/s M.2 PCIe NVMe 256GB - 135mW (more power) 3) Samsung EVO960 3200MB/s PCIe NVMe 250GB - 5300mW (lots more power) Thanks for playing Mr Fake News.


Use the facts published by WDC instead of making up fake news and facts about this specific item. The WDC specifications says:- 1. WD Green ™ SSD 240 GB uses Average Active Power 0.080 Watts ; Max Read/Write Operating 2.8 Watts 2. WD Green WD20NPVT (*) 2.0 TB 2.5" form factor, Read/Write Power : 1.7 Watts , Idle Mode 0.80 Watts 3. WD Black PCIe NVMe SSD 256GB/512GB uses Avg. Active Power 0.135 watts; Low Power Mode PS3 0.05 watts


This is the lowest it's been on Amazon so a good price for that reason. I think most people won't notice speed differences between this and the 'blue' version in day-to-day usage.
