You are getting Crucial P1 for around 4600  (NVME) and Crucial MX500 for around 4500 after discounts. Pretty good for the price. These are not the same as some of those insane deals that got sold out in seconds, but they are solid nonetheless.

Got these. Got around 10% discount. Thanks everyone. Will post some feedback after installing. Hope everything goes smooth.

 

Btw got charged twice on my CC after a failed transaction. Got sms from Bank side for 2 deductions but nothing from Amazon. They said it was hard declined and I'll get refund. No issues right?

 

PS: Thought i was posting in ATEs thread. Sorry for OT.

Bro, you ordered a SATA SSD. Just stating because you mentioned that you wanted to buy nvme. Still, SATA ssd will be a huge upgrade.

The 500GB EVO 970 wasnt within budget and wasnt sure if 256GB was enough so got the cheaper variant.

And people did say the performance difference isnt really high enough to consider paying double the amount.

Crucial P1 is NVMe though. It's a bit faster when compared to MX500 but I am not sure about the durability.

Unless you are transferring very large files on a daily basis or running a workstation, you won't notice a difference between SATA and Nvme.

So if you aren't one of them then you made the correct choice.

P1 is based on QLC, rather than TLC in Samsung 970 Evo. 

QLC is considerably slower than TLC and uses a buffer of higher speed storage (generally SLC etc) to speed up but downside is, once the buffer fills up, you performance will soon come back way down.

QLC is cheaper as seen by the price of P1 and for specific use cases might make sense.

But QLC is less reliable and rated for less iops, so I wouldn't recommend to use it as your main driver with os on it, better to invest in a SATA ssd.

Agreed. But isn't the buffer on P1 good enough to transfer ~50GB or so? Read quite a few reviews stating that it's absolutely fine for real world performance. Similar to the Intel 660p. Especially considering that TLC based SSD don't make sense unless you are extremely performance oriented.

For booting up and launching frequently used applications, I can see 50gb being enough but that buffer won't help you if you want to write a huge file on your ssd which you downloaded or something else. Also, in case OS somehow allows the file to be stored on that buffer, you will lose performance on other applications (the page table entries of which it replaced).

 

Also, the performance increase isn't that much to look over reliability difference.

QLC is bad. 

Less reliable, and speed gains aren't to the extent of TLC. Difference is visible in real world tasks too (I comparef the Samsung qlc vs tlc). Plus the price difference ain't much. 

Don't see the point of QLC unless it goes for bargain bin prices (you still have to worry about reliability).

Yes you will get it. Just keep a track of it, in case there is a delay by bank since Amazon didn't get it.
