    Nice post. I suggest that his AU$ is suffice, and to edit to make it easier to read.

    10% GST will be applied in the end when checking out.

    Nice, better than the price I paid for the 2TB 660p from B&H Photo 2-3 months ago (~AUD$370 after shipping, conversion etc).

    I'd suggest watching this before you buy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OffzVc7ZB-o
    TLDR; it uses a storage method that is slower, and has a lower life expectancy than other SSDs.

      thanks for the heads up! i would rather a reliable mechanical 2tb than a potentially short life spanned ssd

        It comes with a 5 year Intel international warranty so nothing to worry about!
        This SSD looks subpar on paper, but in practice, it performs just as good as any other NVMe SSD.

        5 year warranty with a 400TB write tolerance on the 2TB model.

        If you write 250GB a day, everyday, it should last you 4 1/2 years, write 125GB a day, everday, and you should get 9 years.

          good stats, thanks for sharing!

          my os and games drives are ssd so they load quickly.

          the 4tb for holding photos, documents and movies is still mechanical. i dont seee much of a diff loading a photo from an ssd vs mechanical.

          but also back then 2tb\4tb ssd's were crazy expensive. now that their coming down to this price point i may reconsider.

        While I originally wrote it for the Samsung QVO drives, this uses the same technology, so most of the info is the same, might help https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/452765

      To hit the thresholds for these drives, you would have to be doing much more than a regular desktop user would use it for. In which case you'd have a completely different use case.

      For a regular user for storage, game/program installs these drives are fine.

      I have a Samsung 970 Evo Plus 512gb an Intel 660p 1tb. The 970 Evo Plus R/W is close to 2,000MB per second whereas the 660p is between 1,300-1,500mb per second. The 660p is still way and above a SATA SSD in terms of speed. I haven't had any issues with either.

    Some ssds are faster. Other m2 drives close in price benchmark better.

    •  

      Bit of a weak comment without links to examples! I'm looking at the 1TB drive - the only drives I see coming close to AU$160 shipped are the absolute cheapest SSDs, all SATA based, which I don't imagine benchmark all that much better. I know this 660P isn't the fastest drive but it is damn good value at this price, and would make a great secondary SSD to my primary 970 EVO+

        Ah, I had the wrong drive in mind, 600p. They are using the same pics for the refreshed 660p. This one is not so bad…!

    Can you still buy from Amazon US? I thought they make you checkout through Amazon AU a while ago.

    •  

      You can only purchase items that Amazon itself stocks and sells (with a 10% GST banged on at the end); you cannot buy from 3rd party sellers on overseas Amazon's, even ones that store their goods in Amazon warehouses.

    how it compare with 760P?

    Waiting on AUD to go parity with USD again and buy it for $99. That's true bargain IMHO

      Presumably by the time that happens the pricing would’ve adjusted anyway :(
