    Random 4K Read/Write:

    240GB: up to 100,000/80,000MB/s
    480GB: up to 100,000/90,000MB/s
    960GB: up to 120,000/100,000MB/s

    Pretty sure that should be IOPS not MB/s

    At that pricing Samsung NVME is still the way to go.

    Agreed the 960 EVO is definitely still the sweet point. However if you want M.2 on the cheap (relative) buy SATA based ones.

    At that price they're running into the WD black series, which claim better performance in IOPS and read (looking at the 0.5 TB models)

    For £45 more for the 0.5 TB model, why? There's nothing magic about samsung SSDs, and plenty of horror stories

    At this rate they will never get to sata pricing...

    Still got my 240GB crucial drive that i got for about 45£. Ain't planning on getting anything unless prices drop. I rather buy hdd at this point.
