And I think a lot of people have pea-sized brain, for real. I have read through last threads, I see that people say it has terrible speeds for PCi-e NVMe drive. And it's true, it's 2.5x slower than many other PCI-e 4x NVMe drives (at least on paper). But people fail to see the bigger picture - it's still 2x faster than a regular SATA drive and now it sells for a pretty much the same price. It's hard to compare apples to oranges and then throw in a pear which this drive is, but price wise it's an excellent deal. Whoever can feel the difference between 1000Mbps and 2500Mbps in real life is a speedy-Gonzales of PC performance.

Why TD, it looks like a great deal on a cheap NVMe SSD. For 128GB it's a no brainer, there are no 120GB SSDs below $40 anyway. 256GB deal is also good for $95 if you cont a GC

"Slow" is a relative term... for the price, and modest speed increase over non-NvME, and significant increase over mechanical hdd, snagged 2 for new laptops.

I know speed isn't the ultimate benchmark for these. Are there latency and other performance improvements compared to an SSD over SATA? I've got a 250GB 750 EVO as my boot drive, while all my games reside on a 5900 RPM 4TB. Would the XPG yield noticeable improvements as a dedicated game drive?

Eh if you are going to spend a premium on NVME just get a 960 evo and get the best one. In general I think buying any of these 120GB SSD is a mistake anyway.
