Purchased 7 April but I no longer need the laptop I brought it for so selling. It is hardly used and has a 3-year warranty. Purchased from PBTech Wellington and I will supply the receipt. Comes in original packaging.

 

R/W 3200MBs/1800MBs 330K IOP This thing is fast.

 

$300 with free shipping or pickup in Wellington.

 

 

 

SOLD

We have one of these in a laptop and they are amazing. 3 times faster than a normal SSD in real world application.

So tempting to replace my desktop 2.5" 256gb Samsung 840 Pro with this and a PCI-E adapter card.

IMO worth it, I've got an NVMe in my desktop and my work laptop.  Plus $300 is a damn good price, I'm almost tempted.

Sorry to spam you but does the adaptor get the higher speeds the drives are capable of?

 I've just been doing some reading, it seems so long as the drive, the adapter card and the slot are all PCI-E x4 then yes.

I did look at suitable adapters as I was keen on this, seems there is a bit of variance. I am not sure if they were just released at a time where 2200MB/s was the highest speed so that's what the market BS says, but it was pretty hard to find a controller that stated it would run this drive at full speed. If someone has a recommendation, let me know.

There were some recommendations for this one on some forum when I was also considering this :)

Sorry I think I just got in before you.

 

I didn't even realise there was differing keys on m.2 drives.  I've ordered https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/ADPSTT3310261/StarTech-x4-PCI-Express-to-M2-PCIe-SSD-Adapter , it doesn't mention speeds but with PCI-E 3.0 x4 I'm hoping it'll be good.

Thanks, I was hoping to find one locally. 

 

I Actually have a very similar one to this in my home PC, but I got it in the US, where I can find plenty of suitable adapters.

I'd be interested if it does fall through.

 

From memory only about a possible 9% real world performance increase over normal SSDs. Hardly anything in it for Windows and application load times.

 

Want to eventually get a 1TB+ M.2 NVMe...
