Don't buy that Intel 660p... Not that it's a bad nvme but the Inland Premium 1TB will last longer and is way faster for only $17 more.

I have the Intel 600p and I have absolutely no problems with it for over two years now. I understand it is slow in regards to nvme speeds but at this price being cheaper than just sata I don't see a problem. This is a decent drive especially for the price.

600p or 660p? 600p is TLC.

is this promo code only for this ssd, or any ssd? I'd rather buy EX950 but looks like the promo code isn't applying...

Newegg's promo codes are (usually) specific to a certain product, so that code will only work for this drive.

I like this deal, the Intel is nice. Sure you should know the drawbacks of QLC but for most users I think the difference will never be seen vs another nvme. Large file transfers are the issue with these drives, some good reviews are Newegg explain the problems but I think it's negligible. I'll just install Windows and a few games on this, probably 300-600gb usage so this is perfect for me.

I agree about the speeds but not the drives lasting significantly longer. The Inland Premium (or any E12 Phison controller drive) should be roughly twice as fast as this drive on both read and write tasks (which translates to 4x-6x the fastest SATA SSDs). That's the primary benefit of that $19 (price differential counting shipping).

Yes there's also the fact that the Inland uses TLC while the 660p uses QLC, which entails that the Inland's WRITE speeds won't slow down radically when nearly full or after you exceed the 660p's (~150gb) SLC cache. But other than doing an OS transfer, how often do you write that much data at once to a drive?

The QLC vs TLC debate about longevity, however, is pretty meaningless unless you are writing datacenter or broadcast TV editor amounts of data. Mathematically you are just not likely to see either drive fail within 5 years. And the way the RAM chips and controllers are designed, the fact that a few cells on a chip may eventually fail to hold 4-levels of data means that the controller will just use those cells as part of the SLC cache. Complete cell failure may also happen over time, but at a much lower rate... again, not statistically significant.

Many people might also prefer a better known brand like Intel than MicroCenter's in-house generic brand. This might matter re support, as with firmware upgrades.

All that said, I agree that the Inland Premium is a better drive with newer, faster technology. Whether it is worth roughly an additional Tubman (~$20) or not is in the eye of the buyer.

660p is a great as ssd for laptops due to great power consumption, most nvme drives are poor peerformers here. The 1tb drive is also much faster than the 512gb. It's also single sided which is also great for many laptops.

I'm swapping my adata 8200 for this one to extend battery life and better control thermals.. the 8200 will go to my desktop instead.

I'm pretty sure one of the Phison E12 1TB SSD's will get down to $90.

That's all good and all but I expect an ssd to stay above 150MB per second "no matter what I'm doing as long as I'm writing a single file at a time". Nand is actually getting lower overall.

I've never used anything from Inland Premium, are they reliable? Warranty honored if issues arise?
