    Can your windows boot drive be an M2 drive? Because I would be all over that :D How expensive are these M2s gonna be? Reply

    Even if this drive was 50 cents per usable gb that still means an $800 drive. And there is little chance it is going to be this cheap per gb when it is first released. Reply

    Wrong math.
    The M2 is "only" up to 512GB so it will most likely cost 1$ per GB like. In europe the prices are about 1€ per GB, some disks more, some a bit less but it looks like that's where we'll stay for a while.

    Formed the sentence a bit oddly. It should say ...it will likely cost 1$ per GB like most. Reply

    Not really true for me. I'm in Germany and prices for the most common SSDs are hovering around 60 cents per GB, sometimes more sometimes less. Reply

    Agreed. As a back-of-the-envelope UK price you're looking at ~£0.65 per GB (Samsung 840) to ~£0.85 per GB (Samsung 840 Pro) in the UK at standard non-discount pricing, so I'd expect prices to be a similar / slightly lower in Euros. Reply

    Currently you can't because there aren't any motherboards that support M.2 ;-) However, you will be once these become available. Reply

    Unless their build wizard is lying, you've been able to order some Lenovo laptops with NGFF for at least a couple of weeks. I only know because I was screwing around building a low end E431 a while back and the "micro hard drive" (caching SSD) is listed specifically as NGFF. Reply

    The ASUS boards with mPCIe Combo II have M.2 connectors. Nothing on SFF-8639 yet though. Reply

    hopefully compatibility and stability will be good.
    Adata is woefully lacking in firmware updates for their SSDs.

    Somehow I doubt that the little XNP280 has the same R/W speeds as the 1.6TB drive. That just doesn't make sense considering the number of NAND chips. Copy and paste fail? Reply
