    so tempting my boot drive is a wd m.2 256 which is full

    This or should I wait for a price drop on Crucial P1?

      Doesn't The P1 have the QLC that slows the drive to <100mbit speeds after short usage?

        <100MB/s for a SSD makes me sad

      • +5 votes

        I have the Crucial P1. I found that if I write 75GB or more in one go to it then it gets so hot that it slows itself down to sub-100MB/s writes, which was disappointing to find when I first installed it and transferred around 500GB of files to it over from another SSD. But it runs fast for everyday usage with around 900MB/s reads most of the time and am generally happy with it.

        Define short. Maybe around 100GB. How often do you write 100GB? If often, e.g. video editing, I'd steer clear. If almost never, e.g. using it as a drive to store games, then it's great value.

          Yeah I have one of thse Crucials and I love it. You really only use that much transfer when doing your initial clone.

          But if you are doing video editing for example, you'd be better off spending that extra $50-100 for a non QLC drive. Just warning others for their use case.

          The cache size depends on how much overall space is used, so the trigger amount shrinks as the drive gets fuller.

          •  

            @ssquid: It isn't 1 to 1 though, it fills rapidly towards the end of being filled. You're supposed to keep most SSDs about 10% free, that is more important for QLC drives.

      Thanks for the responses everyone. I won’t be writing large files often. Seems like Crucial P1 id good enough for me. Just have to wait till another deal comes up. They used to appear quite so often but hasn’t seen one recently.

    •  

      I reckon it would be better to go for the Kingston A2000 as it has none of the issues QLC has and on staticice it can be found for 159 AUD for 1TB. It is a recent release and it is aimed for sata/below sata pricing while having decent NVME performance.

        I disagree, if you compare performance, this SSD is only ~$20 more and offers far higher performance. Both are TLC NAND. Kingston A2000 960gb offers maximums of 2200mb/s read and 2000mb/s write speeds whereas silicon 1tb m2 offers maximums of 3400+mb/s read and 3000 mb/s write speeds. Obviously there are variables at different performance levels with SSD's (especially when integrating SLC cache) but this SSD is far better performance across the board in just about every instance. It also maintains much higher average performance than the Kingston model too. You can read about real world performance below:

        It is brilliant value; damn close to 970 Evo performance at far less cost. A very solid buy for anyone on the fence. The cost of SSD's usually tend to go up towards the end of each year so a good time to pull the trigger.

    isn't this the normal price?

    Thanks OP. Got one

    The Crucial P1 is good enough, I got it for $129 from the last Amazon sale. So $50 less then this.

    This is a really underrated deal. This drive is around the speed of the 970 Evo give or take. Totally blows the rocks off anything near its price. Basically the price of a regular QLC NVME, and close to the price of a M.2 SATA drive.

    If it was the 970 EVO at this price people would go nuts

    For those motherboard has two nvme slot, can you do raid 1/0 and make it a booting device?

    My 2c

    Ive had this drive since May. The thing flies, previously I've had Samsung 970 and don't notice a difference at all.
    Great deal

    Bought 500GB Samsung M.2 970 Evo Plus for around $113 ebay sale plus cashback. Serving as my OS driver pretty well with some room to spare for other apps.

    Damn. I wish I didn't buy a 1TB 970 Evo Plus for $297…

    How is the durability (max writes) compared to the 970 Evo Plus?

  •  

    (profanity) me with my over priced 970 drives :(

  •  

    Bought 1, thanks OP

    How do I confirm this :

    "To support a Silicon Power PCIe SSD, the system must have an M.2 connector with only an M key. The Silicon Power PCIe SSD does not have a B notch and therefore, the B key on the SSD connector will prevent it from being inserted."

    I have compared it to my current one and the connectors appear the same?

  •  

    This is like getting a Samsung 970 for a fraction of the price. The adata sx8200 is another competitor at this price point with similar speeds if anyone wants to compare.

    I think this means something to someone buying this.. .it sounds pretty important

    "Now with all that said while it is mostly a reference design E12 NVMe Silicon Power did make one tweak that we do take issue with. PHISON designed the E12 around the idea of having 6.25 percent Over-provisioning. In the case of the ‘1TB’ capacity version that meant instead of 1TB it was to be seen as a 960GB capacity drive by the OS – i.e. have a full 64GB of over-provisioning. The P34A80 does not natively come with this level of Over-Provisioning. As such we would recommend that for those who are planning on keeping their drive for the full five years of the warranty period and want to get the best performance they can… to turn it into a 960GB drive. This is one of things that separates the P34A80 from P34M85 drive. To fully convert it, either ensure your motherboard comes with a heatsink and/or active cooled M.2 port… or spend twenty dollars and pick a heatsink up from Amazon/newegg/memoryexpress/etc. Then you will have the more expensive model… and a drive that will be configured even better than the way Phison envisioned it!"

      Provisioning is just to protect performance. If you fill up an SSD to its true max capacity it'll slow way down. As long as you leave 50GB free it's fine.

    •  

      Any recomendations for the heatsink? I've seen many but not sure whats better. Thanks.

  •  

    Bought 1 to test. My Crucial P1 hung at shutdown for Windows 10.

  •  

    Has anyone tried using something like this in a thunderbolt 3 NVMe enclosure with your laptop? If so, what speeds were you able to achieve?

  •  

    Anyone can lead me to find out if my laptop will recognize it?
