Err, the Kingston NV2 2TB NVMe SSD is down to £77 at Ebuyer....you should go grab one!

A 2TB SSD for mega cheap.

It seems that the deals gods heard me when I've said we've been having some amazing deals on a wide range of SSDs recently, as this Kingston NV2 2TB, a PCIe 4.0 SSD, is available for £77 from Ebuyer, which is an insane discount for modern NVMe storage.

For a PCIe Gen 4 drive, this price is particularly ridiculous, and it works out to £38.50 or per TB. However, it does mean you will make some sacrifices compared to some of the absolute best gaming SSDs, for instance. Its speeds of 3500MB/s read and 2100MB/s writes mean it's about half as fast as the likes of WD's SN850X or the Kingston KC3000, but it's still going to e a speed upgrade on any older PCIe Gen 3 drives you have, and an even bigger upgrade on both older mechanical hard drives or SATA SSDs that max out at around the 550MB/s range of speed due to the limits of the SATA interface.

Another key thing to note here is that thisis a QLC drive, and one that doesn't feature a DRAM cache. This means it may not be the most suitable for intensive tasks such as video production, but for more general stuff such as storing and playing media or games from, the NV2 should be more than suitable. Even without that DRAM cache, there's no reason why you couldn't use the NV2 as an OS drive on a less-powerful machine, where the speed boost may make a bigger difference.

The fact also remains there's a 2TB capacity to take advantage of here, which is going to give you a decent bit of space on which to put applications, documents or games and media. It's going to be enough space to store a good amount of games and stuff on, even if a lot of AAA titles are pushing triple figures in terms of their sizes.

Getting a 1TB PCIe SSD under £50 is an excellent deal anyways these days, not least when it's a decent PCIe Gen 4 option that you'll be able to chuck into any modern system for some additional storage on the cheap. The Kingston NV2 may not be the flashiest of drives in the world, but it's a workhorse for the price, and a well-regarded one at that.
