Excellent price, I doubt the price of this will fall by more than £10 for the remainder of 2018.

Cheers, a 10% drop is still pretty big.

DevilzGtr

I exaggerated, I thought I read up to 25% lower by end of this year but these articles suggesting up to 10% by the end of this year and still continue to fall into next year.

Are you sure, can you link a couple articles?

Completely agree, the only benefit to nvme drives are when you copy large files. There's a few videos on YouTube of comparisons and these drives are pretty much similar to an SSD when using them for gaming. Spend the money of buying a larger capacity SSD if that's what you want this drive for.

If you really require decent performance never buy based just on the sequential speeds as there is so much more to an SSD than that.

DAZZ2000

Not a problem mate!

alshanky

Thanks for the detailed explanation. Not been up to date with recent trends.

DAZZ2000

Not exactly no. PCIe stands for pci express - a much improved version of the pci bus used on pretty much every motherboard. The pci bus generally means to most of us the pci / pcie slots that we typically plug add-in / expansion cards into such as sound cards or graphics cards. The bus does also control other elements too but it is essentially a high speed interface between the addin cards and the processor. NVMe is a new type of storage controller specifically for Non Volatile Memory based storage. It utilises the pci express bus to tape into the high speed lanes to the processor and memory etc. NVMe addin cards that plug into a pci express slot were the first drives to appear. They were and still are expensive compared to regular SATA SSD or hard drives. These newer NVMe drives available now use the M2 slot (a new slot that’s been out about 18 months or so) to tap into pci express bus. You can still get non-NVMe drives that fit this new socket. Their technology is still the same as most SATA 2.5” SSD drives but they are in the newer M2 form factor. They aren’t generally as quick as NVMe drives though as they can’t make use of the pcie bus and instead tap into a regular SATA port (albeit indirectly) I.e. no attached cable into a SATA port just the M2 interface consumes the SATA port to function. Hope this helps. Sorry if I’m teaching you to suck eggs !

alshanky

Are NVMe and PCIe one and the same? I just bought the Lenovo Ideapad 520s that comes with just a 128 GB SSD. Do you think this will be good addon for a second ssd?

Rastafari

Does anyone know if this would be suitable for an early 2015 12” retina MacBook

have you tried claiming warranty from one of these? assuming you paid for shipping?

Horrorwood

£11.

mysticus

Sorry to be a bugger, but, this is a chinese brand, sold/sent from china... they can provide 100 year warranty, and it wont mean a thing... Lets assume they wanna honour warranty, 1st, you will be required to send item back and ensure it is tracked, check how much that is gonna cost you back and forth (assume back to you is on them, u still pay some good money to send to china tracked)? 2nd, assume your package never arrives to where it should, or they may just say it is lost? how will you prove? they ll just claim it wasnt them signed... 3rd it will need to be insured for this purpose, and your drive will have cost you a lot more, and not to mention hassle and time dealing with chinese! if these are a good deal cheaper than market prices, i guarantee you they made shortcuts! and it will not be pleasant for you... just saying from my experience...

Horrorwood

"The Kingspec will roast at idle, not just when working hard." I see you are just pulling claims out of thin air, so I guess we are done here. But I could also mention of how your link with "bad" amazon reviews is mainly "Windows won't detect it!" Well I am 99% sure most of them will have not formatted the drive, its unfortunately very common when selling storage. But hey lets just agree to disagree.

Salfordgirl1

I'm not sure what a 4 year old video showing a 100GB transfer has to do with any of this. The Kingspec will roast at idle, not just when working hard. I've got a Samsung 970 Pro, so yes I do =) It peaks at around 50-60c, comes with a 5 year warranty that Samsung will actually honour, actually manages to meet their advertised speeds, has good customer support and I managed to buy it from Amazon. On the other hand you've got Kingspec who say it's 3 years yet won't reply to any customer emails. I'm not sure why people will fight to the death for Chinese tat, but by all means, spend away. I'd advise not relying on it or putting anything important on it, but it's your choice so hey ho. Enjoy your SSD.

High sequential speeds are quite useful if you back up your storage drives regularly (something we should all be doing). Also it should make loading screens in video games shorter. Plus some other uses here and there I can imagine. P.S.A. Seriously though guys, good advice; back up your storage drives regularly. I do a full disk image once a week. Depending on how much you use your PC, running into a problem that wipes your drive can be almost traumatic.

dan3141592653b4300

MX500 is better on random reads which is what gives the PC a snappy feeling and is most of real world (non datacenter) usage. Sequential speeds are a myth. Good price for a NVME though, bear in mind it uses 2 PCIE lanes where more expensive drives utilize 4.

The regular 2.5 inch types use a sata connector and one above uses an m. 2 connector and is just a different form factor for saving space etc. But can be similar speed wise If you see an SSD with one of the m. 2 connectors and NVME in the title they use new bus tech. that is superior in speed as it uses pcie tech instead. Just need to check your motherboard is compatible

Oh, you mean application/game loading that isn't bound by the SSD at this point in time? Disk bound applications will greatly benefit from NVMe.

sion22

well you dont have to take my word for it. you can google application/game/OS loading benchmark and the general census

fishmaster

I most definitely disagree with everything you've stated.

sion22

NVME performance is almost unnoticeable for most user. unless you move large file around constantly like a video editor. for everyone else. NVME is not worth spending at all

fishmaster

Important this is using SATA bus, so you'd really want to use this in a laptop and not in a desktop. Desktops generally support the much faster NVMe host controller which interfaces directly with PCIe. The speeds of this M.2 are no faster than a normal 2.5" SATA.

Good to see some cheaper PCIe NVMe drives. PCIe/NVMe should become more prevalent and narrow the pricing gap with SATA now there is quite a bit of competition for the controllers (this one is a new Silicon Motion chip while Marvell have just introduced new controllers too). Here's another in-depth review: https://www.pcper.com/reviews/Storage/ADATA-XPG-SX8200-480GB-M2-NVMe-SSD-Review-Budget-Performance Should be, the Intel support page: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005503/mini-pcs/intel-nuc-kits.html doesn't show this particular SSD but does show other M.2 PCIe NVMe drives (usually older ones e.g. Samsung SM951 is my drive, pretty much the first M.2 PCIe gen 3 NVMe drive available) so it should work.

Thanks OP, went for it!

Katanaqui

Personally I would consider it worth it, but only if your hardware supports the faster PCIe interface and you use your computer/laptop for read/write heavy activities. If your system only supports up to SATA III, or you don't really use your computer for relevant tasks, then it won't be worth it as you won't achieve or see the benefit from the higher read/write speeds advertised.

TomScrut

Drives of this category such as the 960 Evo were about £200 a few months ago so it is a good deal. Just depends if you think it's worth it Vs a SATA drive or a lesser NVME drive
