Update: Back in stock Smilie

Slightly cheaper than the previous FP deal @ $135 direct from MyDigitalDiscount (this is MDD via Newegg). If you haven't already used it, MasterPass checkout will get you another $10 off with 'MPBTS17' dropping the price down to a very respectable $119.99.

Got the previous deal from MDD and have been very happy with the performance of the X300S 512gb in my Dell i7559 4k, alongside a Sandisk Ultra II 960g 2.5".

Specifications:
• Capacity: 512GB
• Form Factor: 80mm (2280) M.2
• Interface: SATA III (6G)
• NAND Flash: 1Ynm MLC
• Max Read Speed: 540MB/s (ATTO)
• Max Write Speed: 475MB/s (ATTO)
• Hardware Encryption: AES 256-bit
• Security Support: TCG Opal 2.0, IEEE 1667, eDrive
• Power Idle: 85mW
• Power Active: 120mW
• DEVSLP mode: < 5mW
• Max Shock Resistance: 1,500G
• Dimensions: 2.23mm x 22.0mm x 80.0mm
• MTBF: Up to 2,000,000 hours

FAQ: No, this is NOT NVME, this is SATA M.2. Yes, NVME is faster for sequential reads and writes. No, not all computers that have M.2 slots are NVME compatible. Yes, this drive has 4k random reads/writes that are competitive with some NVME drives. Yes, it would be great if this was $100 but it isn't.

And to clarify - these are M.2 SATA III not M.2 NVME.

Great for laptops that are not NVME capable but have an M.2 SATA slot.

1 year replacement warranty.

i7 6700/6700k has 16 PCIe 3.0 lanes. But you really can't bottleneck even, say, a pair of 980ti in SLI at x8. Benchmarks for most situations show less than a 1% difference in x8 vs x16 mode. You'd be fine running your GPU & NVME.

a) What is a 'pci-e 4 port socket m.2 card'? I think you mean pcie x4 nvme m.2?
b) Please find a 512gb pcie x4 nvme m.2 for $180
c) You get 2000MBps/1800MBps on sequential read/writes. What are your 4k random read/writes, which is what your drive will be doing for the majority of its life. What NVME drive are you using?

The truth: when it comes to 4k random reads, NVME really gains you nothing and some are slower than a good SSD. Attaching IJIRCCE published study 'Performance Evaluation of SATA and NVMe Based SSDs' [ijircce.com].

Most folks are going to live squarely in the red circled area the majority of the time.

Via an adapter like this [amazon.com], I believe so.

Edit: cheaper adapter: https://www.amazon.com/RIITOP-Con...4MVDM8MHFD

Wrong item. The one you list is for an mSATA SSD, not m.2.
