out of stock Crucial P1 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD $145 + Delivery @ Shopping Express

1480

Lowest price I've seen for a 1TB NVMe SSD. Claims to be 2000MB/s, reviews say its a very decent drive for the price. Its QLC nand. Read the reviews and decide if its appropriate for your usage.

I bought 1 for a new computer I am building, planning to use it as a game drive.

    I am loving how much the price of these nvme drives is coming down, I was super close to getting a 1TB nvme for my PC when I built it a year ago. Would have cost a lot more.

      I know right? I Remember spending almost $150 for my 120gb Samsung 860Evo years back. Now I am almost getting 10x the storage plus 5x performance for the same price. Unbelievable.

        $629 for my Sammy 960 EVO NVMe two years ago.

        Early adopters probably cover the cost of the research to the manufacturer.

        But I think it was worth it, especially when Windows 10 start/reboot no longer causes that much angst.

          Most research is done in Universities and is paid for by taxpayers and students, not business.

        Can confirm I spent $300 for a Samsung 860 Evo 500GB just two years ago. It's insane.

        I remember paying $8,600 for an NEC PowerMate II+ with 640kB of RAM and a 140MB HDD. To upgrade it to 1MB of RAM was an extra $1200.

        The big selling point was that it had (wait for it) a 12" 800x600 colour screen.

        140MB was the biggest consumer-oriented HDD on the market in 1989 though.

        Even more betterer, a hotkey combo (from memory it was "CTRL +") sent the CPU skyrocketing from 8MHz to 12Mhz… and it came packaged with MS-DOS 3.3, Borland Turbo C and Borland Assembler. WIN.

        Tell the kiddies these days, and they won't believe you.

        My current machine - with an i7-7700 @ 4.2GHz, twin Titan-X video cards, 64GB of RAM, 3x23" screens plus 1x34" screen, and a 1TB NVME m.2 bootdisk - cost less than half (in inflation adjusted dollars).

        Yes, it's getting a bit long in the tooth, my current desktop…

          I'm still rocking two Crucial M4's (64Gb and 128Gb) in some older machines… They were released in 2011! So I'm going to say yep!

            @webbiegareth: Back then, they would have been SLC or MLC - which would be way more reliable than the current ones.

            This is worse - QLC - in the long run.

            • +1 vote

              @r0nmac: Controller reliability is biggest factor in how long a SSD operates in typical use, not the storage medium itself. Modern QLC lifespan is similar to the older SLC / MLC, its just that modern SLC / MLC has also improved.

      •  

        Yeah I already have an 860 in my build, ran out of sata cables though and wanted something to occupy m.2 slot otherwise would gladly pick up another one.

        • +4 votes

          You have to check you mobo to make sure that if you use your m.2 you won't lose a sata.

      •  

        For the price/storage/performance I'd vote for the 500GB Evo Plus too, the 250GB model when on sale is only $30ish cheaper.

    •  

      Silicon Power 256GB NVMe PCIe Gen3x4 is $69.99 on Amazon (remember to get cashback)

    •  

      Perhaps look for one second hand? Those with laptops that have small NVMe primary disks plus a large spinning disk will be starting to upgrade if you wait.

  •  

    Would this be compatible with most boards?
    I've got a HP ProDesk 200 G2 i would like to put this in.

    •  

      Friend, are you sure its a prodesk 200? Not the 600 with a 200w psu? If so the speclist does has nvme drives listed, but I'd personally open it up the check out the mobo first. If its got the m.2 slot you should be gold.

      •  

        I'd also make sure it was an nvme vs sata m2 slot also. I'm not sure how may mobos come with a sata only slot, but worth checking that bit too.

        •  

          Only the Desktop Mini and the All in One 600 G2s supported NVME , the SFFs dont have an m.2 slot (either nvme or sata) on the mobo. SATA 2.5" SSDs only for these

      •  

        You are correct. 600 sorry

    Hi everyone, Just after some friendly advice as I built my gaming PC in 2014 and am a bit confused, I have a Asus B85 Pro Gamer Mobo, does anyone know if it will support this type of SSD?

    •  

      Friend, it wont work.

    •  

      If you have a PCIe slot available then you can get a $30 card and plug it in. Your PCIe 3.0 slot would be used for video I guess, so you could only run as PCIe 2.0, but you should be able to get full speed on it? I think! So maybe twice as fast as using a SATA SSD? And you can still take the card with you when you update the MB. I don't think you can boot off it with your MB though.

    Pretty good price on this drive, although after $10 postage it takes it to $155
    I see Amazon Aus selling these for $163.61 plus $7.28 post.

      Plus ~$1.50 surcharge for using credit card… I gave up and got it from Amazon (with Prime for free delivery) with Cashrewards… Not a fan of these surcharges.

      Friend, the performance on the 960 is a lot better han this one. When filled this drive is slower than a normal sata drive.

          Friend, your own website shows my claim.

          https://www.anandtech.com/show/13512/the-crucial-p1-1tb-ssd-...

          When the Heavy test is run on an empty drive, the large SLC cache of the Crucial P1 enables it to deliver an average data rate that is competitive with most high-end NVMe SSDs. When the drive is full and the SLC cache's size is greatly reduced, the performance drops to well below that of a typical mainstream SATA SSD.

          • -3 votes

            @Siddeeqi al-Hammoud: Just read the page instead of this out of context quote.

            That leaves the Crucial P1 as usually being very fast, and definitely faster overall than any SATA SSD. The use of QLC NAND doesn't cripple the drive, and is a detail that most consumers don't have to care about.

        •  

          EDIT: just see above comment. Mine is redundant.

      •  

        You did not say a sata SSD, you said a sata drive, I believe most people understand a sata drive as an HDD.

      • +3 votes

        When filled this drive is slower than a normal sata drive.

        This is not exactly true. It's only slower when 1) almost full, and 2) in sequential writes. Those two situations are almost mutually exclusive - who writes large files to an almost full drive? The truth is that in almost all situations, this drive is faster because SATA drives are severely handicapped by their interface. The most important metric for 99% of users is random reads, followed by random writes, then maybe sequential reads (for loading games and other large apps). This drive is much faster than SATA drives on all metrics.

    Just remember that this is a QLC SSD which means if you intend to use its full capacity, you are going to have a bad performance.

      • +1 vote

        Hello OzB.

        The Samsung has much better performance and the best MLC memory, you misread the message.

        •  

          If you need 1TB… otherwise stick with the samsung drive.
          All that trouble to go through.. not worth the time.

        •  

          The Samsung is a much more reliable and faster drive. I would stick with it unless you really need 500GB extra and can't purchase a seperate SATA for it. If I were you I'd keep the 970 Evo, it's a great drive and you won't regret it. I'd purchase a seperate 1TB SATA SSD for my other storage needs, and keep the Evo for my boot drive with a couple programs on it. Let me know what you decide to do and if you'd like some more advice!

  •  

    Has anyone put these in a compatible portable case and then connected via a USB3.0 port? Thinking of doing this a storage drive for X1X.

    Noob question: I've got a new laptop with 256GB NVMe (from Lenovo deal which I've just received). I am thinking of getting this to upgrade the 256GB drive. How do I clone the current drive content into the new drive? I assume once I do that I will just need to swap the drive?

    •  

      I'm in a similar situation in that I want to be able to just clone my current HDD straight onto this one and then just unplug the HDD and have the computer run as per before off the NVMe. If anyone knows if this is possible please let me know!

      • +1 vote

        You need some cloning software, I used Macruim Reflect (free version) without any issues. Although in my case it was to a sata ssd. You also need to have both drives connected to you laptop at the same time. This may involve buying an external case, as mentioned above, to connect over usb.

        Yes dannos, you then just swap the drives.

        •  

          Cheers burp. I thought I'd need an external case of some sort so that I can connect both drives at the same time. Thanks for replying!
