Is a Crucial P1 1TB NVMe SSD Durable/Good?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was looking at random deals on Amazon.com and I was wondering if this NVMe is good (not necessarily worth the price/price-to-performance) in general.  I am thinking about using it, instead of purchasin a Crucial MX500 1tb, but I'm not sure if this is a durable/higher end NVMe M.2 form factor.  I don't really care a that it's capped at 2,000MB/s, instead of double that; any useful input would be greatly appreciated.

The P1 is not exactly super good quality and may not be super reliable, but it's going to be just fine.

I have also bought 2 x 1Tb drives with the amazon offer but I am not yet sure if I will use them or maybe change for Sabrent, as those are way faster, even I prefer Crucial as brand rather than the unknown to me Sabrent.
