Mushkin Pilot-E M.2 2TB NVMe SSD: was $309.99, now $197.99 @ Newegg
Mushkin’s high-end Pilot-E 2TB SSD is now less than two hundred bucks — packing high sequential read and write speeds over 3,000 MB/s, along with secure 256-bit AES encryption and an impressive endurance rating.
More eagle-eyed deal spotters out there will see that the Pilot-E drops in price regularly, but it's never dropped to a price this low. That makes for some serious value for money, given the premium speeds and features this offers.
Performance across our tests remained impressively competitive against higher priced drives, even out-performing the $100 costlier WD Black SN750 in PCMark 8 Storage 2.0 Testing.
The rest of our testing is laid out in detail in our Mushkin Pilot-E M.2 NVMe SSD review, but to give you the cliff notes, this is an ideal choice for adding plenty of high speed storage to your PC, complete with impressive endurance and efficiency, 256-bit AES encryption, and a large SLC write cache.
Provided you can look past the 3-year warranty and the fact it's not the fastest internal SSD out there, then at this price, the Mushkin Pilot-E provides some of the best bang for your buck we’ve seen in an NVMe deal.
