    QLC
    Warning.

    Empowered by Intel's innovative Intel QLC Technology, the Intel SSD 660p offers higher capacities at a lower cost than TLC-based options.1With PCIe

    worse than TLC, why would I not buy MLC?

    •  

      Because MLC is even more expensive than TLC?

      Besides, are there any mainstream MLC based 2TB NVMe SSDs? 970 Pro maxes out at 1TB

    •  

      Because you want to buy SLC

    •  

      Eh it's still plenty quick, not to mention you'd be getting this primarily for the storage space anyway
      (2TB for around $300 is pretty good, especially for an NVMe m.2)

    Is the reliability equivalent to a HDD?

        Started off great but I had more than 1tb used the speeds tanked. Not acceptable for an ssd at that price.

      When I was copying large files across from a SATA SSD I had speeds as slow as 50mbps. Slower than a hard drive

      •  

        That is specifically a use case scenario where it suffers.
        It's kind of a pain, but being nearly 1/2 the price of TLC drives in some cases it's not a terrible compromise.
        If you're just 3/4 filling it with Steam games and playing them the load times are great, as demonstrated in the video linked above.
        Copying your Steam library to the drive however is another example of where it struggles, but things like that are not a frequent scenario for most users.
        It's not a drive to suit everyone, but given a chance it's great value for the right users.

        Ultimately, for a bit more cash a Samsung EVO will give a user more pros and less cons.

        I've voted + to any neg comments above as i think everyone is entitled to a say regardless of weather i agree with them or they agree with me.

    Just over half the read and write speeds of the Evo plus. You rarely get the maximum speeds. So would be closer to high end SATA SSDs burst speeds.

  •  

    Given it’s half the price of a Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2TB, are the limitations something which should be overlooked for a normal laptop user? I’m literally tossing up between the two assuming the Samsung gets in stock.

    And someone else recently suggested a Samsung 860 Evo which is also 2TB and low $300’s but obviously SATA speed… although the Linus video would indicate this may be better.
