£105 on ebay brand new....yes its cheaper than say....a Samsung 860pro 1tb but its a smidge slower and has nearly half the tbw...the 860pro being 1200 tbw, personally i`d rather pay the extra and also get the the ability to use rapid mode which works great when you have 32gig of ram

Or get a 1TB Sabrent Rocket NVMe drive for the same £105 that's massively faster (basically the same drive as the MP510 reviewed here on Guru3d)! Well, ok, not everyone has an M2 slot for it, but otherwise there's not much point getting this SATA drive for the same price but lesser performance. EDIT: ok, I checked, on amazon in the uk this SATA drive is £93, whereas the Sabrent Rocket NVMe is £109 for the same sized storage - still worth geting the NVMe instead though.

Yeah, but just about everyone has a PCIe slot, so, you can always get this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/M-2-NGFF-to-Computer-SATA-Dual-SSD-PCI-PCIe-x4-x8-x16-NVMe-Express-Adapter-Card/202760892790 Although I'm not a strong advocate for M.2 (not against it of course, I just don't think it's as great as a lot of other people), I do agree that I'd rather get a cheaper M.2 drive.

I just read an amazon customer review and while the rocket may be fast it also runs extremely hot not to mention mention throttling issues, but i already have 2 nvme drives but i have an Ocz vertex 4 512gb that i might change out for a bigger drive at some point, what i would like is an Nvme drive that does not lose performance as it gets filled.

Someone over on notebookreviewforums told me his 2TB Sabrent Rocket ran hot & throttled. I don't have that problem with mine though - I've got a 1TB Sabrent Rocket, and the temperatures don't go over 59 degC during a 32GB Crystal Disk Mark run for instance (which is like 10mins of pure hammering of the drive if I remember rightly). I don't even have a heat sink on it. I have got good airflow in my case around that area though (x2 140mm exhaust fans, and with Noctua NH-D14 CPU air cooler sitting above it - so a lot of air movement in that area). You can check the "Lifetime Temperatures" of the Rocket drive using HWInfo, and there it states that the drive has never throttled in it's whole life of me using it (the warning temperature threshold is 70 degC, and the critical temperature threshold is 90 degC - my drive has spent zero time above either of those thresholds).

I was just about to ask.... do larger NVMe SSD's of the same make/model have better performance than smaller ones (is this a given)? (i.e., 1-Tb better than 500-Gb?). I've just notices some comparisons in some reviews of the Samsung 980 pro and observed this several times in different reviews. Was wondering if I should move my 500-Gb C:drive Nvme SSD over to a 1-Tb drive.
