    How would these compare to the Samsung 970 Evo Plus? I need to upgrade the SSD in my laptop to store games on.

    • +1

      the 970 Evo Plus is definitely faster than the P1, but as a drive for games, I'd think there wouldn't be too much of a noticeable difference in load times (maybe ~1s, if any). keep in mind that the P1 2TB is double-sided so it may not fit in the same slot. 500GB and 1TB are single-sided like the 970 Evo Plus so it'll fit all the same.

        Thanks for your reply! Wasn't aware that 2TB were double-sided. I think 1TB should be enough for me to install a bunch of games onto. It's not like I have time to play that many anyway!

  • Crucial P1 or WD Blue SN550 if they were the same price?

    • +1

      depends on use case, SN550 has better read speeds, but write speeds have been impacted by a silent nerf. seems to only affect if writing files larger than the SLC cache (12GB)
      there's also something about P1 having DRAM, but SN550 having HMB which allows it to use system RAM as DRAM, but I honestly don't know how much that affects performance.

      so if you intend to write to the drive a lot, I'd say the P1, but I feel like the difference between the drives are not going to be too noticeable in the average use case
      note that this is only from my research, so i may be wrong. anyone feel free to correct me

      SN550 review (pre-nerf; w/ comparisons to P1):

  • Crucial P1 or the crucial P2 for $60 less? Is there a noticeable difference?

    • Crucial P2 they have swapped it out to QLC and is super horrible

      • for game storage the 60$ qlc p2 would be better?

  • I didn't know the P1 came in 2tb? Maybe I'm thinking of the A2000

    • They claim it went on sale in June 2020, but I only came across it a few months back. I read that neither of my computers could handle a 2TB M.2, so ended up with 1TB. I am enjoying these prices falling.

  • this or the Corsair Force MP400 2TB as a windows OS drive + gaming? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/662646

  • 500gb - [email protected] JW computers pick up

    • And it $68 with 10% cashback on Amazon delivered. The other concern is these computer stores (not just JW), wipe their hands of you after the sale, leaving you to deal with any faults via the manufacture. Amazon will accept the return on behalf of the brand and refund you even years later. I think a lor of people that have dealt with amazon chat for faults, would pay a little extra (even though it's cheaper with cashback and delivered) for a service that goes well beyond expectations.

        Yep, totally agree. Would def get on Amazon rather than these PC stores. Might be convenient for ppl who live right next to these stores or passing by.

        • True. Waiting for AusPost can be not so joyful

    Picked up a 1TB P1 as a secondary drive for my Acer Nitro 5. Also have 16GB RAM coming, should make it pretty usable now.

  • Please ensure you install the Crucial Storage Executive software and update the firmware.

    I had to transfer 100+GB of video and another 100+GB of photos. Part way through, the drive disappeared. I've now realised that I should have got a better SSD but at the time of purchasing, I didn't have the need to transfer and work on so many video files.

    So after updating the firmware, the temp maxed out at 62degC (I don't know what the temp was before the firmware update). It does thermal throttle but it was better than disappearing altogether. I though I had lost the entire drive.
