    This just looks like some more marketing led branding, especially as there are technically better offerings available from the same manufacturer, as pointed out

    Re: Seagate launches FireCuda 120 SATA SSDs for gamers

    Yes but 2 different ways of connection, and not all have "a lot" of open .M2 slots

    I am looking for a SSD myself as the one i have ( my old OS drive ) are just 256GB, even if i still have 2 vacant .M2 slots.
    So i want something reasonably cheap & "snappy" for my programs and games, and then i keep my .M2 drives for the OS and output / work areas for stuff like video editing ASO.

    I am okay if it take a program or game some more seconds to load VS having it on a .M2 drive

    And then a large spinning disk or 2 to ditch stuff on you dont need to access often, like the final output from video editing, where program output speed sort of match the write speed of a spinning disk.
    So if anyone are in the generous mood today, i will take a 1TB firecuda NVme drive, and a 2 TB Firecuda SSD, all you need is PM for contact information about where to send the items :-)

    Yeah unfortunately, all this "gaming" and led nonsense is aimed at the uneducated (not stupid, just no knowledge of this area) casual crowd. Unfortunately it works, all companies make terrible products aim a casuals, using this marketing strategy, with much higher mark-ups, the dummies buy it too.

    Anyone with knowledge knows not to trust Seagate.

    They'll be up against stiff competition from the venerable MX500 and 860 Evo amongst others, at under £110 and just over £130, respectively at time of post. Will be interesting to see what they offer if those prices are reflected at retail.
