    Kingston KC2500 NVMe PCIe SSD (1TB)

    About as good as PCIe 3.0-based NVMe drives get.

    While it is a good justification if measured up against a e4 drive, I just can't imagine paying a 70% premium for real world performance improvements that aren't noticeable. The scenarios in which this drive would be needed feel like the sort of scenarios where they'd pay out for DC grade gear anyway.

    I'd much rather pay a bit extra and get 2 drives. RAID0 M.2 would be pretty fun ha

    Adata XPG SX8200 Pro still seems like the one to beat if you want high performance without the silly pricing. 1Tb for £120....and it seems roughly comparable to this from the benchmarks I've compared.

    Why no EVO+ comparison?
