    Not that bad of a deal, the MC one is $135 + tax + gas. The Crucial one might be a good deal if your laptop only has PCI x 1 or x 2 lanes like the Dell 7567 for example. No sense in getting a much faster drive if your hardware can't handle it. Also, if you want to max out your laptop's storage space it might be a good deal. Get one NVMe and one SSD, most laptops allow you to have two drives these days. I thought that faster speeds only matter if your swapping large files, like 100GB video editing clips.

    Not even a football field close to the Inland performance wise but price wise it's really good.

    Higher throughput also means higher power usage and heat output, not a great thing on a laptop.

    (Idle Power Consumption - Lower better)

    (MB/Watt - Higher better)

    These pictures are for the Intel 660p obviously, but it shows that some of those awesome performing Samsungs come at another price. While the "slow" 660p has other advantages.

    And that price would be about $4 dollars additional per YEAR lol.

    Don't let that little graph have you thinking those are huge differences ... you're talking about the absolute tiniest amounts of electricity

    Power matters if you've 40 of these in a storage enclosure attached to a server. Power is what the big boys think about moreso than raw performance. Of course, I'm not a big boy so I've still got old pentium 4s burning power. :D

    When you aren't connected to the grid, it does become a concern...but you can't make anything out of those graphs in that regard. They don't use mAh as a unit, and MB/W makes no sense...MB/Wh? MB/Ws, maybe?

    My comment was about laptop usage specifically (limited power, limited cooling). Plugged in to the wall is not going to be an issue, I agree.
