Pretty good price for an entry-level SSD. Not best for high workload and writing hundreds of GBs at a time.

Either or between the two is fine, get whichever is cheapest.

There is a difference in performance expectations between TLC and QLC, which TLC is faster and yet QLC has less write lifetime cycles, but the average and "advance" computer user will never get to that point before the storage will inevitably get replaced 4-5 years down the road, anyway.

Also, the speed is only noticed on large files and 1000's of files being moved or created and accessed by lots of requests etc. So if you work on big RAW photos, then TLC is faster sure, but QLC is no slouch either when compared to SATA SSD transfer speeds. The performance feel in usage vs even a regular SATA SSD will feel the same when browsing around the OS and what not, so don't overthink that part. Just get what is the best price for your purpose.

People will say only get QLC for deep storage where you don't plan on writing to it many times, but that's all BS imo, because like I said, even the power user will not use 200TB in 5 years before it gets replaced; that's a lot of constant writing.

Honestly, anything will make the biggest difference over a mechanical HDD nowadays. Don't forget, we went from 600MB/s cap to 1700MB/s. Picking a drive over 200MB/s difference shouldn't matter considering the leap we made between the two technologies.

On benchmark tests, sure but in real world application usage not so much.

Here's a pretty thorough review: https://www.tomshardware.com/revi...,5852.html

Personally I'd go with the Intel 660p since it's around the same price point but that's more a matter of preference.

I wonder if Micro Center will match and accept there $5 off coupon? I have to pay tax either way and Micro Center is in a half tax zone.

This seems pretty good. Any reason I wouldn't want to get it for my Dell XPS 13 (which apparently is bottlenecked anyway by being in energy saving mode)?

This is decent for the XPS 13 (I'm assuming the 9360 or 9370?) since as you mentioned, the XPS 13 is limited to GT2 speeds for "power saving" reasons, although the real reason is more than likely Dell was afraid GT4 x 4 lanes would cause thermal issues.

The Crucial P1 operates as fast as their MX500, a 2.5inch SSD so if you had another device that could run at GT4 x 4 lanes this wouldn't be worth it unless you're concerned about weight and/or space.

It's faster than that SATA drive. Not a terrible buy as long as you're not expecting it to run like a Samsung 970 EVO.

Same could be said about any NVME drive. even the article you linked shows some tests where there is minimal benefit between 970 and Crucial P1. Faster speeds only really benefit professionals or large file transfer. The Crucial P1 and Intel 660p are pretty fair for being similar priced as SATA drives with some extra speed. It would be even better when prices drop more tho.

The register will not allow price match and coupon applied. Maybe grab a filler?

I'm torn between putting this or even 660p in my HP Pavilion Gaming laptop (15-cx0056wm) or spending $40 more (on Neweggflash) to get the 1TB EX920. I've been running the 500GB EX920 in my desktop and it has been great, and the 1TB version seems to perform even better vs other NVMe SSDs.

Thoughts? TLC vs QLC and is the extra speed worth it for someone who likes a good Slick Deal? Mainly light gaming, some streaming, web browsing, photo transfers, and RPi image burns. Will be pairing alongside a 2TB HDD.
