Ive been seeing that this drive is best bang/buck. 

The speeds seem slow for an M.? Would this be noticeable compared faster drive?

you mean NVME i suppose. 

its QLC, so yes its slower than TLC, and DLC drives.

unless you do massive write sessions you wont notice anything.

getting any faster will be a price jump.

If you need a 2tb SSD, the 660p is the best value right now. It's a bit slower than some other TLC based NVME drives, but still good enough for daily usage.

I'd say the 660p is ideal if you have 2 m.2 slots and this is your data/game drive. I have a TLC SSD for boot and the 660p for data and that seems to work splendidly.

Thats a pretty big increase in price. Im just a gamer, so the 660p should be good enough?

Uses Toshiba NAND, should be reliable enough?

Would be better that SATA im sure,  would like the 2TB boot/game on same drive.
