    • from looking at your mb, it does have 1 slot for Type 2280, so yes it can.

      • But I think this SSD is NVME and my motherboard doesn't support it? Someone said I have to get a SATA SSD for my motherboard?

        • +3

          nah you should be good to go; from gigabyte's website:

          1 x M.2 connector on the back of the motherboard (Socket 3, M key, type 2260/2280 SATA and PCIe x4/x2 SSD support)

    • Sure, it has 1x M.2 Socket dude

      • But I think this SSD is NVME and my motherboard doesn't support it? Someone said I have to get a SATA SSD for my motherboard?

          According to the specs, "someone" is wrong:

          1 x M.2 connector on the back of the motherboard (Socket 3, M key, type 2260/2280 SATA and PCIe x4/x2 SSD support)

          This should work.

            @Orrelljet: Thanks mate, so does that mean I can't use NVME drives on this motherboard? Can you please link me a 1TB Socket 3, M key, type 2260/2280 SATA SSD that will fit my mobo. Sorry but I've got NFI. I thought M.2 is same as NVME but apparently not

    P2 for $127.50

    • pros and cons of P2 vs P1? EDIT: nvm someone has just posted a comparison link below.

  • This or P2 for primary drive (which I will install games on?)

      • "Crucial P2 also makes use of a much faster TLC NAND, which is more reliable and less prone to errors that the Crucial P1’s QLC flash – which is generally not recommended to be an operating system’s primary drive."

        Hmm

        • dram TLC > dram QLC > TLC > QLC
          exception being the WD SN550, which has a controller that lets the TLC run OK without dram.

  • I have one of these and after 1.5 years it's suddenly had some kind of weird partial failure, where it's read/write speed is slower than a mechanical HDD.
    Thought it could be a data issue, but reformatting didn't help.

  • How are these compared to the intel SSD6 nvme drive? In terms of reliability and speed

  • -1

    Hi Jack!

  • for those that have the P2, what speeds are you getting?
    I am only getting
    SEQ1M Q8T1 ~860MB/s Read and 645 MB/s write

    • I've got 908 MB/s Read and 946 MB/s Write, tested in Black Magic Disk Speed Test.
      P2 is slightly faster than my Samsung T7 (non touch). T7 : 911 MB/s Read and 848 MB/s Write.

      P.S. The P2 enclosed in ROG Strix Arion enclosure

      • *high five!!

        My P2 is enclosed in a ROG Strix Arion too!!

        I used CrystalDisk. Anyway to determine what is causing the speed difference or I just got a mediocre P2. lol

        • nice!!

          I don't know if the type of format affect the speed or not but both my P2 and T7 (all 1TB) formatted as exFat.

          I reckon it might be the format type in your P2.

          • @FrugallyOz: Thanks, I will research on the formatting.
            I left it default when I initialized it, so its NTFS.

            I thought NTFS was the "standard" now

  • I have an alienware aurora r11 and plan to use an nvme to pcie adapter, is there a limitation on storage it can handle? Plan to get the 2 tb

    • No, it’s just a physical interface converter. Should support all M.2 drives.

  • I have the P1 (part of a Techfast build), but understand the P2 is generally better, so go for that one for the minimal price difference.

    Also consider a heat sink for any NVME SSD that doesn't have one already, The P1 didn't and slowed down dramatically after just a short time of continuous read/writes.

    • my P1 1tb works fine after 1 year of usage, 98% life left.

  • I know it's hard/impossible to find now, but P2 or Kinfston A2 1TB (even if I have to go 500GB for the A2) - have seen reviews of better read/writes on the P2, despite the A2 having DRAM - what am I missing?
    Use-case is to upgrade my Samsung PM951 256GB dual-boot drive (maybe 2 games on it), size increase more of interest than the speed, but longevity, too.
