This is currently one of the best performing M.2 NVMe SSDs on the market [amazon.com] (better than Samsung EVO 970, although it depends on which benchmarks you use). The triple camel says it's the lowest price so far. Unfortunately only the 500GB is on sale.

Update: not currently in stock, ships on January 25th

Update 2: same price at Newegg [newegg.com], currently shows in stock

it is never a good idea to buy electronic hardware way before you need it.

I've been shopping lots of motherboards lately, and the vast majority of them have some side-effect if you use the 2nd M.2 slot.

On some, it disables a couple of SATA ports. On others, it cuts the PCI-E speed on one of the slots.

You should look up your own MB model and check for yourself. Feel free to disregard if this is for another PC with no NVME drives already in it.

Does not everyone see the "See deal" button? At any rate, yeah, it's now not in stock until 25 January, although it was when I originally posted it.

ETA: Newegg shows the same price and in stock, OP has been changed to reflect this

So I already have one NVME drive for BOOT drive items and a SATA SSD QLC drive for backup. Is it overkill to buy this as well? I have a spare m.2 slot and memory costs are estimated to shoot up this year. So I'm trying to make sure I'm set before the.

looks like they are making room for all the new SSDs coming out after CES also the great PCIe 4.0 movement

BTW, if you want to use this in a retina Macbook Pro, get one of these [amazon.com] (I have, and it works, although I haven't tried it with this particular SSD). Speed should be at least double that of the original Apple drive.

With a risk to be down voted, I got a gut feeling there is something with these drives. They are dumping them lately everywhere. And for some reason always the 500gb is on sale, not the 1tb. ( With the size of software/games these days 1tb fills up really fast) I guess time will tell how reliable they are. Personally I use Evo plus, been good to me so far. As a secondary used cheap AData 8200 to store games etc. And I can always redownload them if it fails. And for the people that say they have warranty, keep in mind warranty doesn't cover all your photos and videos you store for edit there. And always do backups Smilie
Hope I'm wrong. Always had good experience with WD mechanical drives.

My Dell has an SSD for boot and 1TB HDD for storage. Should I run into any issues adding this NVMe drive for additional storage?
