Liranan I've received my C2000 and I am flabbergasted as to the speed of this drive. Boot times and startup times are amazing. Sadly I can't test the true capabilities of this drive as I have no other drive fast enough to copy to and from but then copying at 1.4GB/s is more than fast enough for my needs.

ThrashZone Hi,
Easter is coming up and I'm sure more sells too.

Yeah, kinda wished I'd bought some M.2 NVMe SSDs during the holiday sales. Building a Windows 10 NUC so could use it now.

Alas, all my desktops/laptops were still on SATA or even mSATA (yeah, not even M.2) back then so I didn't bother to stockpile.

The MP510 right now is at 140%.

As always, shop around but overall the prices are up for cheaper SSDs and maybe a little down for the expensive ones as they are being replaced by PCIe4 variants.
Sadly this is the case, even 860 QVO's have gone up in price where I am and are quite a bit more expensive than they used to be. Depending on the brand the price difference between the 970's (EVO and Plus) and the E12's is so small that the E12's just aren't worth it.

I have found some cheap E12 C2000's but I haven't bought one yet because I can't decide whether they are genuine or whether there's a catch somewhere as the only other drive that's this price is the AData 8200. Even the WD SN720's are the same price as the 970's, which is why the 970's are still the best selling drives.

Edit: the SX8200 is more expensive than the E12 C2000 by about 20 USD (200 RMB). While this is a small price difference it shows how bad SSD prices are right now and I regret not getting one sooner.

I'm in the same boat. The recommended Phison 1TB SSDs are $150 and Samsung 970 EVO 1TB is $170. At $20 difference, I'm inclined to just grab the 970.

As long as you make contact with the controller you're good and all other improvements are "piece of mind/OCD/just coz I can" and have likely almost no measurable useful impact.

The SATA SSDs are still holding their crazy prices on par with NVME. Checked couple days ago, the SSDs don't drop in price anymore, rather go up as problems worldwide occur in supply.
Ok so I'm good too, it's around 26c 30c. Yea unfortunately there's some people that still walk like there's nothing bad around or as they are immune, so this pandemic gonna last awhile.

Thank you cheers
