expired Intel 660p 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD $165 Delivered @ Newegg

532

If you missed out on the Crucial P1 1TB deal for $148, this deal might ease the pain a little.

There seems to be a price drop on SSD's in recent days.

Usual price on Newegg is $220. Cheapest I've seen it on eBay is for $194 via Computer Alliance.

    Got one!

    This is great for those who bought laptops that only had 128GB m.2 ssd storage.

  •  

    Waiting for an intel 1TB m.2 to break $100.

    Getting there, slowly.

  •  

    I still remember paying $460 for 512GB Samsung one a few years ago. I'll buy one again when the price for the 2TB hits this level.

      Don't feel too bad.

      QLC (quad level cell) storage is cheaper to make as you can store 33% more data per cell. But performance is much worse than normal TLC (your samsung) SSDs.

      Specially when it comes to sustained writing to the drive, very quickly the speeds drop to below HDD levels ~ 50MB/s.

      Read speeds are better, but these drives are still quite a bit slower than traditional TLC SSDs, which I would 100% recommend for using as your primary drive, perhaps a QLC drive for data/game storage (as is my setup).

      A Samsung NVMe Evo/Pro SSD will massively outperform any QLC drive under any imaginable load.

      Hope this helps anyone who is tempted to buy 1 of these to use as a primary boot drive.

        Only slightly outperform a qlc drive if they have a better controller. Only place they massively outperform them is sustained writes. Also Intels QLC optane drives massively out perform any non optane ssd for everything but sustained writes.

      Could be worse, my first ever SSD was 32GB and cost like 400 bucks.

        Got a couple of those myself. Ripped some parts out of an external hard drive and use made them external. Decent replacement for USB.

      •  

        would've been worth it though compared to a 80Mb/s Hard Disk.

    Terrible disk with VERY slow performance. Review the benchmarks boys and avoid this

      "On the performance side of things, we have confirmed that QLC NAND is slower than TLC, but the difference is not as drastic as many early predictions about QLC NAND suggested. If we didn't already know what NAND the 660p uses under the hood, Intel could pass it off as being an unusually slow TLC SSD."

      Depends on use case - I have the 2tb version for capacity storage - while not as fast as my boot - still great bang for buck for capacity storage.

      Copied 20gb file from my Samsung 970 Evo Plus 512gb to an Intel 660p 1tb and it copied across at 1,500mbps (15 seconds).

      If you're doing constant large writes to a drive, this isn't a drive for you. For mainstream PC's where you'll just be gaming, installing games and accessing data occasionally, this drive has been perfectly fine.

      Love people who read benchmarks without any real understanding of their general use and follow the sheep in labelling them rubbish.

      If you have specific use cases like video editing etc. then you'd be in a completely different market.

    I have been using the 256GB 600p series SSD for almost three years. If I was to upgrade, it's not going to cause any issues with Windows 10, is it? I purchased the OS separately from Mwave when I got the PC built.

    All SSDs should remain 10 to 15% free, for optimum performance, this applies more so to QLC based drives. If you consider this to be a 800GB drive and never use the remaining storage, and don't do a lot of large file transfers across networks, you'll be hard pressed to tell the difference between a system with this drive and one with a 970 Evo Plus. It is the difference between real world usage and synthetic benchmarks.

    You forgot to check Amazon (as Wibbleman has already demonstrated) and especially here on OzBargain.

    According to CamelĀ³, it's been cheaper on Amazon (with Prime) since early June.

    More importantly, Being Askhole posted a deal for that over two weeks ago.

    The price fluctuates a little bit due to exchange rates. Currently it's $151.04 (with Prime), or $159.15 otherwise, delivered.
