Right now, you can pick up the Crucial P5 1TB SSD for just $119 at Amazon. We had the opportunity to review this SSD earlier this year. While we appreciated the 256-bit AES encryption, we also noticed it ran a bit hot and had a lower than average performance output, so there are tradeoffs. The blacked-out design and five year warranty help to offset those a bit, and the lower price certainly changes the equation a bit. With a price tag of $119, this offer quickly becomes a bargain when compared to its price history.

This deal is part of our effort to share the best Cyber Monday deals on tech we can find. We even have pages dedicated to specific components like the best deals on SSDs.

    Thats 600 R/W cycles, that is much better than the other QLC drives out there, some only doing 100 R/W cycles (Inland Platinum/Premium), WHile Intel 660p offers 200 R/W and the 665P offers 300 R/W. Shoot the Samsung SSD 980 Pro offers the same endurance so I am not sure what you mean by not much of a guarentee. For the money and performance i am sure tempted, I need to go review power consumption figures though before I pull the trigger. Its pretty much this price at all retailers currently (Microcenter, newegg, bestbuy, adorama, etc..).

    It is a good price for this drive, but I am half considering trying to get the 665p 1tb for $83 if I can find it again as I am not sure I will appreciate the extra performance or endurance especially if the 665p power use is better.

    He was pointing out a typo. 600 TBW stands for 600 TeraBytes Written, but the article says it stands for 600 total bytes written. 600 bytes would be a pretty terrible reliability rating.

    Ha, I didn't even notice that, I immediatly saw Terabytes.
    Anyways I think strong pass on this drive for a laptop use, high power and temp use compared to other m.2 drives for the research I have done. Perfect for desktops though and decent speed for the price.
