Intel 660p NVMe SSD - Really cheap, really fast, really...good reason to have Intel Inside for a change.

You can read the whole review, but it performs within a spit of the Samsung 970 Evo 1TB and will be basically indistinguishable from it under desktop usage, but at $200 for 1TB, that's $150 cheaper than the 970 Evo and puts all the so called budget NVMe drives, which are just SATA drives on an NVMe format, to shame. GRANTED this is QLC so endurance isn't as high, but I've had my 960 Pro for a year and have written under 10TB to it, so a 200TBW endurance means the drive will easily last until you upgrade to a higher capacity in the next decade.
