I use this drive as my Arch Linux OS drive, and I also use a partition of it for my Plex database and transcoding. This is a good drive as long as you are not writing large files.

It has a cache of higher quality flash that it uses to account for the lower write times that this drive's main type of flash has inherently. When you go over the buffer, your write times will drop to about 100 MB/s, which is less than a traditional SSD. I was using a partition for my sabnzbd downloading, parity processing and unzipping/sorting, but I moved that over to a dedicated SSD and have much better performance. This drive also runs very hot on extended writes, so you will probably want a thermal solution for the controller, if possible.

If you heed my advice above, this is a great drive for some use cases - but not for writing very large files.

I don't really think the deal to be had is the 1TB version, but rather the 2TB version. Larger cache (240 gb), price/storage ratio is one of the best out there, and higher durability (400 TBW).

I believe the rants about QLC are over-blown. For the average CONsumer, not PROsumer, not ENTHUSIASTsumer, QLC will handle all daily tasks and then some just fine.

Newegg is also running a promo on the 2TB version, now $189.99 after coupon:

Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 2TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDPEKNW020T8X1

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Pr...6820167461

WITH PROMO CODE
EMCTYUC22

For that Price/GB ratio, you won't find anything even close. You'll be at $350+ for even the next line of NVME drives with that capacity using MLC/TLC. It's apples and oranges.

Anyone know if this is compatible with the HP 14 from the Costco deal? https://slickdeals.net/f/12270274-costco-members-hp-14-laptop-i3-8130u-4gb-ddr4-128gb-ssd-315
People have been successful with some NVMe's, but the previous one I tried was incompatible.

I suggest people put QLC or TLC in the subject since they are at different price points per GB. In addition to 3D Nand.

You need an M.2 NVMe 2280 slot.
