Not that this is a bad drive and this isn't a good price - but you may wish to read up on the improvements the 760p series offers over this older generation. They are significant - and allows it to compete with drives much more expensive.
I just got the 256GB 760p for the price of this to use as my boot drive. Reliability and speed improvements seem to be worth it over getting a larger capacity.

Also, for what it's worth - Microcenter has this on sale for almost the exact same price without coupon code and offers in-store pickup of course:

The 760P is not a newer version of the 660P, and in fact is an older drive, but it does have TLC memory compared to the 660P's QLC.

Reviews are all over the map on this drive. Best to read multiple site reviews and not just one.

I'm planning on getting an nvme this week. What's stopping me from getting https://www.microcenter.com/produ...tate-drive ? I have one reserved to go grab tomorrow at lunch. It's the premium not the base inland and it's speeds are much better than this it appears.

It's kind of a hard question to answer on its own. Yes, cramming more bits into a single flash cell reduces the signal to noise ratio if you will. Those cells have more errors to be corrected and slower read times.

That said, memory controllers can use part of the array as SLC flash as a cache. For the average Joe you do not need to know if it's SLC MLC TLC or QLC. But if you plan to very heavily write to the drive you're probably better off with MLC or TLC than QLC. If you do long continuous reads and writes you may exhaust the cache and find speeds slow.

But if you're a regular user you won't notice.

Thanks for correcting me. Was thinking of the original 600. The 660p I guess is more of the consumer grade brother to the 760 more premium/pro targeted market.

Thanks for the info. I am just using for typical MS docs, web surfing, Youtube, and gaming, I think 660p would suffice then.

Yes. Try to avoid filling the drive 90% of the way and it'll be fine.
