If i buy this and put it in a 2.5" Sata enclosure, it would still be cheaper than buying the 2.5" sata version.

Any issues with putting this into my Lenovo flex 5 Amazon deal? Decided I'm going to keep it but the 256gb drive is already finding ways to annoy me.

Would it be better to get a 1TB Intel 660p NVMe drive for $109.99?

Yes much faster as the intel drive will use PCI express vs this Samsung using SATA 3

I'd pay a little more for the 970.

I think you will suffer a bit in terms of speed because of the M.2 SATA interface. If you need one right now, I would personally go with Intel 660p for $10 less at Newegg (need to put in a promo code listed on the page)

Thanks fams, not up on the differences between different m.2 drive types, appreciate the info.

I'm not in any super rush but $110 for a 1tb m.2 pcie seems pretty good. Is there a better performing drive I should set my sights on if I have time to be patient?

970 is nvme. It wont be supported on m.2 ssd only interface like the one I have on my predator G9-793. If your pc supports both nvme and ssd and nvme is a no brainer.

If you go by the specs alone, the Intel drive I linked is a bit more than 3X the speed of this drive and it's all due to the NVMe/PCIe interface.

Black Friday or Prime day are coming up in a few months so you can take your chances if you want. Personally I think Intel drives are solid in terms of reliability as I have had good experience with them. For example, I have an Intel drive for my home computer that has been going strong for 8 years now.

Probably a dumb question, but there's no disadvantage when the computer is a non-intel pc? ie my Flex is AMD Ryzen, not sure if there are issues with other components not aligning to manufacturer type.

I see the Evo 970 is $170ish, occasionally drops a little lower. Any thoughts on if it's worth a premium?

After a year, my Samsung 970 EVO failed last Saturday =\

This stuff happens with drives and before people say it's still under warranty, I just bought another drive because I cannot wait 2-4 weeks for a replacement.

Hi SD friends, silly question, I'm trying to wrap my head around the difference between this and this blue one I was going to get this week: https://slickdeals.net/f/14062097-1tb-wd-blue-3d-nand-m-2-sata-solid-state-drive-103-50-free-s-h?page=18#commentsBox

Is there any giant differences other than the minor price difference?

Thank you in advance.

Will that Intel work with...
Type 2242-2280, supports SATA & PCIe 3.0 x4 mode
... or...
Type 2242-22110, supports PCIe 3.0 x4 mode
.?
