    $10 difference? If by 10 you mean $180 then yeah, it's $10.

    I posted factual information.
    You posted lies and misinformation.
    STFU.

    Technically you are the liar, about this garbage being a good drive, and from the looks of it, also a mentally unstable fanboy. As for the price, I did say "my local retailer", and just to prove you that this is indeed the case:

    The difference is 18 lv, 1$ is about 1.75 lv, so 18 lv is exactly 10.28$. I don't care about newegg prices, they don't ship here, plus prices in Europe are generally higher, in Eastern Europe - even more so. So yeah, take your STFU and shove it where the sun don't shine.

      You are the one posting outright lies, about this garbage being a good drive, and you also appear to be a mentally unstable fangirl. Everything I said is true, about the performance as well as the price difference at my local retailer:

      Difference of ~18 lv, 1 $ is ~1.75 lv, so that's 10$ and a few cents. So yeah, take it easy with the tantrums.

        Damned forum doesn't post my proof that the price difference is indeed 10$.

          BTW pricing in Europe is different, usually higher, especially in Eastern Europe. The SM951 is 146$, the 600p is 136$, both for the 256 GB version.

            This made me thinking. It would be interesting to see comparison (benchmark) of a few different SSDs in bcache configuration for hard drives. I mean like cheap SATA vs. more expensive SATA vs. NVMe drive and show what kind of difference that makes. Of course there is an option to use write-through or write-back mode for more data safety (is that correct term here, I don't know) or for more speed respectively, so that should be considered as well. I've been using just a cheap SSD (120 GB for 1 TB), but I could go for better drive when updating my workstation next time, if it's worth it. I don't know how much slower the bcache is vs. all SSD setup or somehow manually organizing stuff, but it's very convenient and fast enough for my daily use. This is just an idea for Michael if he is looking for something to benchmark.

              the samsung 960 evo and 960 pro were announced a few days ago, they bring major performance improvements. The 960 evo is faster than the 950 pro yet much cheaper.

                It makes me wonder whether the trade off is endurance versus write performance. I was comparing some of the consumer versus enterprise Samsung drives (PM963) earlier and it looked like the consumer drivers were writing faster but the long term endurance is compromised. You take your choice depending on your priorities.

                  I just recently built a machine for my mom and slapped Arch with Gnome on there and she transitioned to Linux from Windows effortlessly.... Anyway lol..

                  I installed a 128gb sm951 m.2 nvme drive just for the hell of it as I thought $83 was reasonable. The performance is crazy overkill, but should never have to hear complaints about "my PC is slow" ever again. Hehe.

                    Seriously? This has nothing to do with their Linux contributions. Complaints about the drive (and there are valid ones, based on its features, endurance, and performance) should stand or be refuted on their own merits.

                    I suggest you review the data. This is one low-performing drive, with the lowest endurance rating around:

                    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...ew,4738-2.html

                    Even the 1TB model is rated for only 72 TBW and writes no faster than a SATA 3 drive. Not until 512 GB does the random read IOPS begin to exceed what a SATA 3 drive could do. And those are all Intel's own numbers:

                    http://ark.intel.com/compare/94917,94921,94924,94926

                    Not to mention its complete lack of features (no encryption, no secure erase, no power loss protection, and no end-to-end data protection).

                    If your goal was to quell criticism of this drive, it just backfired on you. I wasn't even going to post until I saw your overreaction. I am neither a hater nor a fanboy. I own two 500-series Intel SSDs, about which I have no complaints. But I would neither buy nor recommend the 600P.

                      You can usually over-provision for better write performance and longevity. Most drives seem to support host-protected-area (see hdparm -N), although I didn't get it to work on a Crucial MX200 and I don't know that it'll help with Intel 600P's TBW limit.
