Would you guys recommend getting the 240gb solely for games or saving up for a larger M.2 drive replacement for my current SSD, and turning that one into the game drive? Primary pc use is gaming, streaming, and occasional video/photo editing. Main goal is to increase storage on the low, but if there is a performance difference I should probably go for the M.2 yeah?

I bought this a few weeks ago - it doesn't come with any software to clone an existing hard drive to the SSD. Kingston's web site says they provide acronis but the 120 GB SSD didn't include a license for acronis. I tried Macrium Reflect but it failed on me, and I had to install the OS from scratch. :(

Um... you already have the 850 Evo and you want to replace it with this one?? The 850 Evo is much better than this one.

EDIT:: I misread. If you're on a budget, a hard drive for storage is your best bet. You won't notice much difference in speed while gaming asides from slightly better loading times. m.2 is just a form factor. You'd have to buy a m.2 SSD with NVMe for it to be faster than the 850 Evo.

Anyways, for storage, 240GB is pretty small. Depending on what games you play, it fills up quick. I just found out Destiny 2 is like 80GBs alone. >.>

Definitely wait for an M.2 NVMe drive.

As a boot drive, for sure. This is more cheap storage or for use in an older laptop or system.
