I love this review of the 660p on Storage Review: https://www.storagereview.com/int...ies_review

If you're thinking about getting an NVME drive because you want blazing fast transfer speeds, avoid this drive at all costs.

If you want 2TB of reliable SSD storage and have an NVME slot free, this is a great drive. Don't focus on transfer rates or IOPS because this drive gets dusted by every other one on the market.

That really depends. I am pretty sure this will work on most m.2 bays but you just won't get nvme speeds.
This will not work in a sata m.2 slot as found on older laptops

I have a second m.2 slot on my gigabyte MB and I think it's sata only...is it even worth using it or am I better off using a sata 2.5in drive? I never see deals on sata m.2 2tb drives.

I think the market has the pricing of these NVMe SSDs accordingly for speed. Certainly, there are faster NVMe SSDs, but you pay for that Samsung Pro line.

For "2TB" of SSD, this is a great price. Most modern SSDs will out-perform any mechanical hard drive at any rotational speed. Just take into consideration what the others have commented on, like <p0tempkin> post. I find that SSDs do not make your computer operate at (/fingersnap) speeds; however. Still, much faster than regular 'ol hard drives.

From the Storage Review article in p0tempkin's post:
Quote :
It's been ages since we reviewed a new client 2.5" HDD, but last time we did, the 2TB drive posted 4K random read IOPS of a little under 100, where we're looking at 60,000 with the 660p.

Compared to a mechanical hard drive, this is faster. Compared to a SATA SSD, this is about the same. Compared to any Samsung NVME drive made within the last 2-3 years, this is a huge step backward in speed. But if you need 2TB of space in NVME format for the lowest price and don't need breakneck speed, this is fine.
