Nice, better than the last deal. Was looking for more m2 storage for gaming. This has better performance than the SK Hynix Gold.

Except it doesn't. Plus the SK Hynix is way more efficient (huge factor for laptops, less so for desktops)

Samsung EPP + cash back would save you more if you have them.

Not a deal. Entry level PCIE 4.0 drives have been cheaper and the mass has been approaching $100/TB

This particular drive was as low as $150 if you are using 3rd party CB sites when the sale price is right.

I'd agree price of this drive isn't that great. But as for entry level PCIe 4.0 drives as a comparison, depends what you mean by entry level. If you mean those early gen TLC+RAM drives (generally rated speeds of ~ 5000 MB/s read 4200-4500 MB/s write) sure they're probably better. If you mean those QLC drives (generally rated speeds of 3600-4000MB/s write) e.g. Sabrent Rocket Q4 then they're not clearly equivalent let alone better. Especially if your not planing to use it on a 4.0 slot and have no idea if you ever will.

Prison E16+ Micron Toshiba/Kioxia 96L TLC NAND is what I meant, which consists the majority of the NVME 4,0 drives out there and they've been below $100/TB lately

Sorry I wasn't sure since I haven't seen any (except maybe Inland Micro which I ignore since they're US only) and for some reason the Rocket Q4 seems a popular deal despite being only slightly below $100/TB. Anyway in that case, not so obviously worse. But looking a bit more I think you'll still get disagreement they're obviously better. On a 4.0 system better sequentials sure. But better overall there seems to be disagreement e.g. https://www.reddit.com/r/NewMaxx/...1/hlrqntq/

Still waiting to replace my 1TB NVMe SSD I bought four years ago for $69. Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron stop colluding to milk the consumer at 1-2TB kkthx. We are ready to be cheated at 8-128TB.

Digitimes: Samsung new NAND flash capacity coming online in 2H21 may worsen price falls.

Everyone has been brainwashed to eat these high prices because xyz reasons. It's easier and cheaper to print ssd NAND memory than make a hard drive yet you don't see those staying stationary at 1-2TB for the past 4 years.

Stop it with the copypasta. 4 years ago, you were lucky to land an SATA 500GB drive for $70.

Doesn't work at all. Need a PCIe 4 drive.
