This is only a so-so deal (at best) for a SATA drive. The PCIe WD Black drive was only $150 on Amazon a week or so ago. With prices on SSDs starting to drop I would venture to guess this will be in the $100 range (if not lower) in the near future.

Assuming those are the only options? Since they're comparable in price I would say the intel drive. PCIe NVMe drives are much faster than SATA ones, and despite what some nay-sayers will say you will notice a difference.

The Intel is probably fine, I just don't have any personal experience with their SSDs. If you're not in a rush I would wait until the 960 Evo drop in price a bit personally. If you do need something now, you could get the Intel and then just use it for extra storage later I suppose.

If you're building a desktop though I would say you probably don't need to go with the m.2 form factor. Just going to cost you more money for similar specs 9 times out of 10. That's assuming your motherboard has slots for other for factors

This in an external M.2 USB-C enclosure could make a slick little external drive. Somewhere in between a usb stick and a 2.5" enclosure, but faster, more portable, and cheaper than both.

Could be good for things like video editing assets, project files, maybe even external OS boot drive.

I would look at the Intel 760p. Samsung drives are descent too, but the Evo is about the same performance as the 760p but costs more.
