    Is there a big difference between P1 and P2?

    •  

      would love a simple explanation for this also

    • +1 vote

      For gaming based on reviews I read P1 is slightly faster

    • +14 votes

      P2 is better for file transfers and storage. It is cheaper, lasts longer and can move large files much quicker.

      P1 is meant for applications, games, day to day use. The crucial (pun intended) difference is that it has DRAM. DRAM is an extremely fast bit of storage that keeps where the files are stored, so it's quicker to look up. So while the max transfer speed is higher on the P2, day to day use the P1 should be faster.

      edit: I should add, the difference it bloody tiny. You probably won't ever notice it without running a pile of benchmarks.

        Thanks for the response.

        Super noob question - I already have a P2 2tb. Will my motherboardbe able to fit 2 of these drives?

        • +6 votes

          Yup, apparently your board fits 4 of them, "4x M.2 Connector Slots" (looking at the gigabyte page that's actually correct too).

          Nice board!

          edit: It's under the shiny metal bits, so probably need a screwdriver to install.

            @freefall101: Thanks dude.

            • +2 votes

              @pharcyde: Just be aware that 2 of those M.2 slots share bandwidth with the main x16 PCIe slot. Avoid installing the second M.2 SSD into slots M2B_CPU or M2C_CPU, especially if it's a gaming machine, otherwise your GPU performance will suffer. (It looks like these 2 slots are the middle two M.2 slots)

              The last/bottom M.2 slot might be gen3 but that shouldn't really matter in real world applications, you won't really notice the difference unless benchmarking.

        Thanks for your insight. When you say last longer, you mean longevity of the product because ssd memory 'wears' and has a lifespan?

      Thanks to Chia, demand on SSDs is going up so we might be lacking in deals in the near future.

      Trying to get a large drive at the moment is a nightmare.

      •  

        Just had to Google Chia !
        So another item with possible crypto influenced price hikes, gees.

        P1 is bad for chia mining. Crap substained performance and endurance.

        •  

          Demand on NAND will push up the price of all SSDs, whether good or bad for chia mining.

      •  

        Very suboptimal for chia mining. Better off sticking with SLC/MLC or optane (enterprise) drives

        That's even assuming Chia even becomes profitable to mine on.

        I don't think chia will cause shortages for long. It's veeeery quickly becoming not worth it. Even now it's not clear it's worth buying enough hardware to participate, I'm not sure why so many still are.

        (EDIT: if you have hardware already, ROI might be plausible, but I wouldn't be buying any hardware for chia today. Just my opinion)

    Slightly off topic but does anyone have a good deal for a 1 or 2tb sata SSD? Thanks.

        Ah yes, my bad.
        Very low still…

        •  

          I use the 1TB for my main boot drive. Yea 200tbw is kinda low, but in my use cases for gaming, and light productivity workload (word excel chrome) it's more than enough.

        •  

          I have personally never reached more than 8-15% of an SSDs life and some of those are 10 years old.

    •  

      I got one April 2020 that's starting to die with only 4tb written

      •  

        got mine around the same time but mine is working perfectly fine. 98% health for the 1 tb model

      • +1 vote

        How do you know it's starting to die? Does it start slowing down, or is just the SMART data that tells you it's dying or something else?

        • +1 vote

          Crystal disk info says it's in bad health, and I can't turn off write protection.

    p1 is totally a rubbish , the cache size is very small. After you used up all cache, the speed will about 70M/s which is slower than HDD

    • +4 votes

      I think the statement above needs to come with asterisks.

      Unless you're doing media editing or regularly moving large sets of files there is no real perceivable difference for everyday tasks. If you think you'll end up filling most of the drive, it is also better to get a larger size one(for example a 2TB model or a second 1TB) than one with more cache anyway.

      For note, I have both the P1 (bottom barrel) and the SN750 (top line) and in general day-to-day, there is no real difference. Most games today don't provably work better on NVme vs SATA SSDs. Also most workloads don't require sequential transfers, and the difference in performance is much smaller in the metric that matters (ie, random read/writes)

    •  

      It's sufficient for a boot drive with not too many writes. I have one in tandem with the AData 2TB XPG8200PRO (pre controller downgrade) and struggle to tell them apart for real world use.

    •  

      After you used up all cache

      Which you won't do unless you are shifting tens of gigabytes around at full speed which most people almost never do …

    As others have mentioned, this ssd is pretty rubbish, better forking out a little more for something like the Kingston a2000

    •  

      Agreed, the Kingston has both TLC and a DRAM cache.

    Anyone know if I can add this as a 2nd drive to X1 carbon?

    I was going to buy this until I read this review:

    https://ssdsphere.com/kingston-a2000-vs-crucial-p2/

    Then I got this for $134 before it went back up
    https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07VXC9QMH/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_g...

    Putting it in that Lenovo 5i I got for $1600

    • +2 votes

      It's still $134 from Amazon AU. Need to change the seller.

      •  

        Thanks for the info, I picked up the Kingston, seems worth it for the 15 extra bucks (note that the review above is for the P2 version not the P1 in the deal, though consensus on the internets is that the Kingston is better than both)

    •  

      Oh I got the same laptop, do you replace the current ssd or adding a new one? Thanks

    •  

      On Legion 5i, do you need to buy an additional cable to install as an additional hdd?

      Edit:
      Found this

      https://www.reddit.com/r/Lenovo/comments/krk6ge/cant_install...

      So seems not required additional cable. But if anyone can confirm would be great.

      In the linked list, strange to see QLC based drives in the Tier A (Ultra High-end) range.

    slightly off-topic, so my apologies. Hoping someone can help me with this here before I jump on one of these drives. I am a photographer and edit / store a lot of photos (~60gb per week). Would I have better reliability from a drive like this, or a standard 7200rpm Hard drive? If I should lean towards the latter, which drive model would you recommend? (Also, staying away from Seagate drives as I have 2 dead 2TB drives sitting behind me on a shelf). If it's the former, and I theoretically don't care so much about "gaming performance", is there any tell-tales for which drives are most robust aside from price? TIA

      You should be running a raid-1 or raid-z setup if robustness is important to you.

      G'day Goose,

      Luklan summarized it well but with modern storage requirements there are no 'simple' answers.

      You need to think about the following:

      • multiple copies of your data
      • what your workflow looks like

      So with that in mind, you generally will get 'higher' reliability with most SSDs.. but that doesn't save you from needing to have more than one copy of your data.

      I'd recommend you want to think about 3 copies if you can afford it and factor in the cost to do this accordingly.

      Nothing wrong with one of the three being a spinning disk and also nothing wrong with one of these being the cloud - you need to think about how long it takes to get data into (and if required, out of) the cloud though.

      It would be a mistake to 'stay away' from Seagate based on 2T disks dying. Simply assume all disks will die and design and engineer accordingly.

      • data redundancy to deal with resilience for how you keep going when disks die
      • data backup and archival for data durability

    Bought 2. First one lasted 6mths, second one lasted 7mths. And by "lasted", I mean that they just died without warning.

    Wouldn't buy again.

    Only 200 TBW. No good for Chia mining.
