May I interject my opinion that this isn't that good of a deal.

Many SDers got the 2TB Platinum P41 for $169.99 1-2 weeks ago. That's 30% more for DOUBLE the HD size. For hard drives these fast, it's best to have the biggest qty the better

This is regarded as one of the best SSDs on the market.

... I know I have the 2TB version. What I'm saying is that $105 for the 1TB is not a good deal. $75 or $80 would be more reasonable.

I feel like it's been around his price for a while. The high original price and the 30% off in red is a bit dramatic on the listing.

That's some interesting math you got going on.

170/105 = 1.619.

61.9% is more than DOUBLE the 30% that you stated.

I only use my internal PC storage SSD for programs and temporary file storage, so for me 1tb is more than enough
I save and keep all my files in an external encrypted USB SSD storage that I connect to my PC only when transferring file from pc
WAY better to keep your value files OFFLINE!!!
I learned the hard way!!

Performance
While the P41 is fast, it fell just shy of the fastest PCIe 4 NVMe SSDs we've tested as you'll see in the charts below. When I say "just", I mean it. It isn't a difference worth fretting over. You'd never be able to tell the Platinum P41 from the highly-ranked Kingston KC3000 and Seagate FireCuda 530 subjectively.


Conclusion: Get whichever is cheaper. If both the same, get the P41 Platinum. If Samsung 990 Pro ever drops to this price (don't count on it anytime in the next 1-2 years) then get the 990 (not 980)

His math may be a little off, but he's right in principle and the point remains....

170 * .3 = $51, and forcing an equivalent it means a $14 delta. That's chump change on the cost/space factor.

Looking at it another way is $105 * 2 = $210...

Numbers are funny that way.... It's almost as if the Order of operations matter...... Go figure. LMAO

Depends on the destination. I'm typing on a 2TB P-31 that I paid $160 for in September and it's in a XPS 13.

If it's going in a laptop I'd strongly consider it. If it's going in a gen 3 machine I'd absolutely do it. I'm even considering it again for another laptop that takes Gen 4 SSD. (I have a new 2tb 980 Pro that I may not install).

Heat and efficiency matter more to me and while I've gotten the P-31 up to 60C (video work), I keep processes in check and control the heat level so it barely getting into the low 50s with heavy processing. It's 43 now, and in the high 30s when I'm not doing much. If your fans aren't running, you're saving battery, reducing wear and tear, increasing longevity, etc.

Besides, people can't tell the difference between Gen 3 and 4, nor can they always tell a PCIe drive from an M.2 SATA drive. They have to read "specs" for that. Cool

Thank you for your response. So, just to be clear you are strongly considering the P41 or the P31 given that you mentioned your XPS 13.

My newest machine is a 9th (high end/high heat) generation Alienware 17, but 2TB should still be good in 5 years held by the warranty.

This is going to sound crazy, but I really need an upgrade for my old Dell Precision 7810 that does not have native nvme drive support. It is a beast of a workstation with 40 cores running at 3.5 Ghz and I need more space for virtual machines that run 24/7. It doesn't seem worth getting another SSD and the plugin cards may be fine with the 2014 tech with 40 PCIe lanes.
