According to multiple sources, including Tom's hardware, least power consumption of any NVMe drive available making it ideal for laptops. Not sure if this is worth the price premium over other offerings from WD/Crucial for example, any commentary of real world power consumption significance would be appreciated.

Series X won’t take any internal drive only the proprietary Seagate expansion drive. You could use an external enclosure to run XBox One games but might as well get an SSD for that.

PS5 requires gen 4 drives.

Should work in a G5. The old ones had one M.2 2280 and one SATA slot. The new ones have two M.2 2230/2280 slots. Check with the Dell website for your specific configuration.

No, wait for their new p41 pcie gen 4 nvme drive or another certified drive.

No. Its too slow. 3500mb/s, while the ps5 requires 5500mb/s

advice only applies if the end user has existing gen4 or plan to build a system with gen4 m.2. otherwise for most ppl out there, gen3 is plenty fast for most task especially based on the $/GB.
my point was "waiting for gen4" as a blanket advice doesn't make sense for most users. even for gamers, SATA SSD is plenty fast for storage/loading games. NVMe drives win for ridiculous read/write speeds (for tasks that demand it) and reducing clutter in desktop PC builds but tend to cost more compared to SATA SSD or even older HDD drives
Bought this for $195 from Amazon just before BF, think the all time low was $190. So not slick but good price if you can't wait.

I would wait for their Gen4. Also, they're buying Intel's flash business.

Thanks, hadn't heard the news. I'm sure it'll be a lot more than $205 though.

Yes, the P31 should continue to go on sale more often as the Platinum P41 goes on sale in a few months.
If you have PCIe 4 and want ultimate performance/reliability for a good price wait for the P41 with it's 7Gbps read 6.5Gbps write speeds.

I figure their gen4 will be even lower power. I'm waiting for an 8tb gen 4 that gets good long term write speeds and hopefully has somewhat low power usage. 4tb gen 4 at least. Hopefully Samsung can pull that one off in TLC. Or SK.

Only need to wait if your system (laptop, pc, PS5) takes Gen 4…

This is a top-tier Gen 3 drive. It's been cheaper like was mentioned, but this is worth it at this price too.

I got one over the Samsung, because of Toms Hardware a while back… They're both the same price right now, so people should pick which they want.

$1100 is the lowest i can find right now, for QLC gen 3. I think I've seen it as low as 999, but not online recently. 8tb makes a truly portable powerhouse of a laptop. My old one had two 2tb drives, but my new laptop only has one nvme. I also used to fill those 2tb drives constantly.

I'm using one of these even though my system is gen 4. With only one slot I wanted 2 TB.
