    Waiting for P1 to drop a little or get an A2000, but convince me to jump on this

      Leap like you've never leapt before!

    •  

      If your mobo has two m.2 slots go for it. This would be good for games

    •  

      P1 500gb is 67 bucks on amazon right now. 62 bucks if there's a JW store near you. Picked up 2 just this morning, 62 is too good to pass up. I paid 85 bucks for my mx500 500gb sata drive a year ago.

      Is it better than the crucial P1?

      •  

        Yes, crucial P1 is one of the slowest nvme drives. Kingston A2000 way better nand & controller.

      •  

        I'm no wizard but I'd assume the 2nd generation P2 is better than the 1st generation P1

    •  

      $149 at centrecom. It usual promo price is $135 if you can wait.

      •  

        I will buy it with a heart beat if 135

        • +2 votes

          Serious question. Is a 10% difference all it takes to move from 'not worth' to 'buy it with a heart beat'?

      They're EOL and in demand, so I don't expect to see many deals, sadly :(

    •  

      For 500GB, how this Kingston? https://www.amazon.com.au/Kingston-NVMe-PCIe-SSD-2280/dp/B09...

    is this an online shop? no physical shop? how about warranty?

      If you can use email and a telephone, should be easy enough to sort out warranty.

    How good is the crucial P2 m.2? I'm looking for above average performance, don't need the very best, but don't want lower than average. Thanks, I'm new to these kinds of ssds…

  •  
  •  

    Damn bought the P2 last week on amazon for $139

    •  

      Have you got it yet? If so how do you find its performance?

      •  

        Couldn't tell you, unfortunately…sent to mum's place, not sure when I'll be able to go over and install (we're in Sydney)

    •  

      Return it.

            @Caped Baldy: Yeah but we're in Sydney (lockdowns galore) and it's not at my place.

            I'm just going to wear this one.

    Thoughts on the p5 and p2 2tb?

  •  

    What is different between P1 and P2????

    •  

      P2 offers faster speeds and better write endurance, however it doesn't have DRAM cache like the P1 so it will slow down more quickly during sustained writes.

    • +2 votes

      P1 has DRam and all round better performance for gaming and light use. P2 has better read and write speeds in moving files but slower with applications and gaming.

      •  

        There is a bad review for P1 on their website, it’s reliable or true?

        • +1 vote

          It'll throttle from heat if it exceeds 70° so I'm sure that would be the cause if it's happening during gaming. You should always put a heatsink on NVMe drives and many motherboards come with them today.

        •  

          Like Clear said, always use heatsinks. Many people will install a SSD and then a bigass GPU almost touching it which will vent heat onto the SSD.

        •  

          Yep can confirm they get hot but great for apps and games. Just put a heatsink on it

        •  

          Ah, good to know, any reasons for go to 1TB? Amazon have $67ish for 500gb

    •  

      And the difference between the P2 and P5?

  •  

    Thanks OP. Bought 1

      Not really a deal but this is alright if you have prime

      •  

        Thanks. Never heard of this brand before. Any reviews or first hand experience with the brand? And yep I have prime :)

        •  

          Crucial is a JD Micron brand (Texas based memory fabrication/manufacturer).
          They are also the OEM manufacturer for Dell/Lenovo systems.

          They also produce the Crucial Ballistix gaming memory.

    Any good external enclosures for one of these? Clearly won't be as fast as connected to the motherboard, but should still be good for a fast, 1TB + external drive. Or is there a better drive for this?

    I am looking for a 1TB or 2TB NVMe or SSD to add into my Lenovo Legion laptop. Will be using the drive for a fair bit of video editing. Any recommendations from this deal or other options? Cheers

      wait for kingston a2000 ~$130-$140

        Cheers

    •  

      exact same boat here

  •  

    Does this have dram?

    •  

      no.
      both p1 and p2 are dram less

  •  

    Best one for gaming, 1tb or less?

    I need an m.2 SSD & sata SSD for my new PC.

    Will be using the capacity primarily for games… Would this be correct?

    Boot drive - M.2 (1TB)
    Games/storages drives - sata SSDs (2TB)

    And are the above the best bang for buck choices?

    Any help would be appreciated :)

  •  

    Why all the debate on speed? A few years ago we were all using regular SATA hard drives. The speed difference between drives these days is milliseconds and I don't think anyone would notice a difference between any m2 / nvme module.
