Crucial’s P3 4TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD returns at an impressive $249.99

The Crucial P3 4TB M.2 NVMe SSD has been missing from Amazon for a few days, indicating that its competitive price has won over PC enthusiasts. Well, those who missed out on a previous deal will get another shot today because the same attractive $249.99 listing is back on Amazon, giving you a combination of speed and ample storage, both in one package.

Installing a 4TB SSD is as simple as it gets and all you need to make sure is that your existing desktop or laptop features an M.2 slot that supports NVMe SSDs, and you’ll be off to the races. Using Micron’s advanced 3D NAND technology, the Crucial P3 solid state drive ensures that you’ll get blazing-fast read and write speeds and that your storage drive will last for years.

Since the 4TB SSD supports the PCIe 3.0 standard, it tops out at 3,500MB/s in the sequential reads category and 3,000MB/s in sequential writes. The IOPS ranges between 650,000 and 700,000. With current generation SSDs in this class reaching speeds of 7000MB/s and above, why would anyone want to sacrifice speed for higher storage? the answer; Advertised speeds are rarely noticed by the user unless they are running dedicated apps.

Once you install it, you will notice a day and night difference in your system speed. In terms of sturdiness and endurance, Crucial promises a 5-year limited warranty and claims the P3 4TB SSD has an MTTF rating of up to 1.5 million hours and up to 800TB (terabytes written). What this means is that it will take years before you get anywhere near wearing it.

However, before you make your purchase, we want to point out one thing. The 4TB M.2 NVMe SSD has NAND flash memory chips on both chips, so while it’ll be compatible with desktop motherboards that feature an M.2 slot, the same can’t be said for laptops. If your priority is installing this in laptops, make sure the double-sided slide design doesn’t hold you back from installing an SSD.

Consult some online reviews of your laptop to confirm its size compatibility, and after everything is checked, you can make your purchase right away.
