NVMe drives are blisteringly fast. And, as it turns out, they’re also getting super affordable.

It’s not related to any of the Click Frenzy shenanigans, but Amazon Australia are selling the 1TB model of Crucial’s P1 NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD (that’s a moutful) for $175 plus another $8.59 for delivery. That’s a massive saving compared to the biggest retailers, which are charging $249 or even $289 before shipping.

Amazon has the 500GB model as well for $101, but the price works out the same as other local retailers after shipping. That said, if you’ve got two M.2 slots free and you can live with 1TB and 500GB NVMe drives, you’d only pay once for postage.
