Hi, everyone who reads this. I need an answer.

Should i buy the Intel 660p 1TB m.2 ssd?

I'm gonna use it for: Gaming, Music Making, Videoediting (1080p), Maybe some After Effects.

Thanks.

It is a fine secondary ssd, but it has gone up in price so much, there are probably better TLC options available for similar price.

But i wanna use it as a main ssd.

As a main SSD, it's lifespan is a bit short, and the SLC cache can fill up pretty quickly, making the ssd pretty much HDD speed, or even slower. If you do a lot of video editing it could eat through the ssd pretty fast.

 

How about Crucial P1 or Sabrent Rocket? They are cheaper and TLC, so they are faster overall and should have a longer lifespan.

Also you could look at samsung 1TB ssds.

 

The intel 660p only makes sense in 2TB, the 1tb one is way too expensive for what it is.

Yeah, but as i said, the 1TB intel 660p is pretty terrible for the price. You can get much better SSD's for the same money.

 

But if you want to use it, yeah use it, it will work fine in "normal" use.

Ah, in this case, you don't have to worry, it will still work perfectly fine as an ssd.

 

The problem with it is that if you want to copy more than 30gb to it at once, it drops in speed like crazy,  and it won't last you 20 years, but overall it is still a really good ssd, the read speeds are fantastic, and those are what count.

Thanks for the fast response!
