Anyone has any idea how much different power draw is in 1TB comparing to 2TB? How much decrease in battery life I am expecting?

No one here will realistically run into challenges with QLC, both in longevity and performance.

Let's try to be real folks, this is a 2TB NVMe for under $300, not bad at all. SATA is finally retiring into the sunset.

Performance you may, especially while copying files. But for 90% of use cases, I think this price is a home run.

I have been using the 512GB version of the 660p and I have no complaint. I have used about 100GB so far and have not notice any major performance hit other than the fluctuation when the caches get refreshed. It is still faster than my EVO 860. It may not have the longevity, but I am embarrass to say I am still using an Intel X25-M in 2019...

Cheapest 2 TB ssd right now according to pcpartspicker. The fact that it's nVME and more than 3x faster than SATA SSD is making this deal even hotter.

While folks are humming and hawing, stock is flying.

Not a bad time to lock and load on a 2TB NVMe.

Why is this so cheap? What are the downsides when comparing this to the wd black nvme 1tb ? Besides the price are there any downsides?

With 400TB of TDW endurance (for the 2TB drive) in combination with the 5-year warranty, one would need to write over 200GB of data per day (0.1DWPD), every day, for 5 years to break it...in theory.

...and if I take Saturdays and Sundays off...I would get 7 years of life out of it.

Nothing to worry about for my use cases.
