[Memory Express] $169.99 -WD_Black SN750 1TB NVMe Internal Gaming SSD no Heatsink - Gen3 PCIe, M.2 2280, 3D NAND -WDS100T3XHC

*EDIT For Even Better Deal* hehe :) Thanks to RFD'er @Elrondolio
Listed @ MemoryExpress for $169.99 WithOUT heatsink.
https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX75359
Expires January 1, 2020

*EDIT*
As noted, it's also available at Canada Computers $179.99, expires December 24, 2019.
Amazon also has it for $199.99 WITH heatsink, but not in stock until January 2, 2020.

Pick your poison, lol.

1 TB NVMe SSD with Heatsink for $199.99. In stock January 2 2020. Other GB options on sale as well.
I'm not up-to-date on spec/prices, but it seems like a decent price to me, and has a lot of good reviews.

https://www.amazon.ca/Black-SN750-Inter ... r=8-2&th=1

So I ordered one :) . Won't be in stock/ship until January 2/2020, so I can always cancel my order if something better comes up BD

The one at CC for $180 is w/o heatsink no? The heatsink version is the same price.

Anyway one interesting thing about the WD Black SSDs is, apart from the crappy first gen ones, the 2nd gen and SN750 have a pretty good resilience to performance degradation over time/fill. Compared to say an SX8200/Pro, which performs similarly, the WD Black drives are notably better when they are filled up, compared to the Adata. This is really not so much a problem these days as I think ppl are buying SSDs way larger than they need but just something to note for those wondering "why this instead of Adata?" Adata is fine and a bit cheaper with the tax savings but the WD Black is excellent as well and arguably backed/supported a little better than Adata.

@1MYT_4CYL:

Might want to update your original post as this WD_Black M.2 NVMe 1TB (non-heatsink) is available for shipping and in stock at Memory Express for slightly cheaper: $169.99 plus $8.99 shipping = $178.99.

Guaranteed at this price this won't last long and will sell out imminently.

By the way: you don't want the heatsink version... heatsinks are terrible for M.2 SSD drives outside of the controller chip itself. Just use a bit of inexpensive thermal pad on the controller for optimal M.2 SSD use, heat and performance.

It may not be a problem but the value is lost when you consider the $/GB of the sx8200 vs the sn760 and have to factor in that you basically get a considerable chunk less storage with the adata.

GeneralZod wrote: Phison E12 drives (Silicon Power, Sabrent Rocket) offer the best performance and price between the SN700/SN750 and the SX8200 Pro. This is taking into account full drive writes. The Sabrent Rocket is $169.99 and is tax free (has a coupon for $19 off sometimes) while the Silicon Power 1TB is $153.99. However that's just another alternative otherwise the SN750 is near the 970 Evo Plus (even if it's on an 64 Layer 3D NAND vs 96 Layer 3D NAND of the Evo Plus).
I wholeheartedly agree with you that the Phison E12 drives are the best bang for the buck (and personally avoid the SM2262EN drives for their problems)... except when you can get this SN750 or 970 EVO Plus for under $180, then these are the best bang for the buck. Yes, slightly more expensive and the SN750 isn't quite as good as the EVO Plus, but either outperform the Phison E12 drives in many instances and have absolutely no weaknesses. If you can get within $20-30 of the Phison E12 drives I recommend picking up the WD_Black or Samsung EVO Plus drive.

I believe this one on amazon is no tax, also 1 TB but no heatsink, comes out to $175 total.

Is this NVME single sided? Will it fit the x1e Gen 2?

It is single sided. It is a x4 lane drive.

Even for gaming as you'll eventually start filling it up and hitting one of it's weaknesses.

Thanks, I had no clue about the issues with heatsinks and M.2 SSD, much appreciated. I cancelled my Amazon order with the heatsink.
Also, good looking out on the cheaper deal @ MemoryExpress
