Crucial CT1000P1SSD8 M.2 3D-NAND NVMe SSD, Purchase Guide

SSDs – Explained

Solid-state drives – SSDs have the same use case as that of hard drives – HDDs. They are also coupled with the motherboard with the help of a SATA interface (NVMe or PCIe interface SSDs are being used to acquire ultra-high-performance in high-end systems). SSDs are intended to store your data, documents, and files just as any other storage drive, but they possess nonvolatile NAND to flash memory instead of magnetic platters and read/write heads like their HDD counterparts. The absence of any mechanical components or moving parts distinguishes SSDs from mainstream HDDs.

Next-gen Crucial CT1000P1SSD8 M.2 SSD

The Crucial’s latest M.2 SSD is a small form factor SSD that is manufactured to be deployed on internal storage expansion cards. M.2 SSDs used to provide high-performance laptops without occupying much space and consuming less energy. M.2 SSDs like Crucial CT1000P1SSD8 SSD can be used in laptops and tablets PCs. M.2 SSDs are smaller than 2.5-inch FF SSDs that are mostly used in desktop PCs.

The M.2 SSD interface was initially named the Next-Generation Form Factor, but the title was changed to M.2 SSD. Crucial CT1000P1SSD8 M.2 SSD is the best solution for individuals who are going to custom build or upgrade their PC or laptop for heavy workloads like gaming, 3D animation, or video editing tasks. You can also use 512GB SSD and can leverage from the faster performance of the flash memory but it is recommended to install your high-end applications on SSD for smooth and faster performance and use at least 1TB hard drive in parallel if you want to save heavy files like HD videos or pictures and

The notable specifications and features of Crucial CT1000P1SSD8 M.2 SSD include:

  • SSD series – P1
  • SSD Type – QLC.
  • Interface – NVMe (PCIe Gen 3 x4) – 32GBps
  • Capacity – 1TB
  • Form factor – M.2 (2280)
  • Sequential Read – 2000 MB/s
  • Sequential Write – 1700 MB/s
  • SSD Endurance (TBW) – 200 Terabytes

VNAND Flash Memory

Crucial CT1000P1SSD8 M.2 SSD possesses 3D-NAND flash memory. Due to the presence of NAND Flash memory, solid-state drives offer better performance and faster read/write operations. Other than that, SSDs can also access the data much faster than HDDs. The fastest HDDs available for the consumer segment are capable to perform read and write operations at the rate of 200MBS and accessing data in a few milliseconds. On the other hand, the top-notch solid-state drives like CT1000P1SSD8 can read and write data with speeds up to 2000MBps or 1700MBps respectively with average access times of a fraction of a millisecond. Simply, SSDs are introduced to be used for a much faster and responsive PC, with instantaneous boot times and no application launch delays.

Durability and Reliability

Another remarkable feature of SSD is durability. As it lacks any mechanical components, solid-state drives aren’t less prone to damages or poor performances due to vibrations or friction between moving components. If you accidentally drop your desktop or laptop PC having conventional hard drive storage, the likelihood of you ending up losing your data are much higher than someone having a PC with more reliable SSDs.  Crucial CT1000P1SSD8 M.2 SSD offers Endurance (TBW) of 200 Terabytes which means SSD endurance 200TB is the total amount of data that this SSD is guaranteed to be able to write under warranty.

HDD vs. SSD – Which one is better?

If we talk about the disadvantages of having an SSD, keep in mind, SSDs are not budget-friendly like their HDD counterparts. An entry-level SSD with optimum storage capacity can cost you around $0.70 to $1.00 per gigabyte, whereas you can acquire HDDs for only a few cents per gigabyte. SSDs are also outrun by HDDs when it comes to storage. Most SSDs usually offer storage around 256GB to 4TB storage capacity, among which 1TB SSD modules like Crucial CT1000P1SSD8 M.2 SSD are mostly used by individuals in laptops.

SSD performance also depends on the portion of a device that is unused. Due to the capacity issues, performance can be affected as soon as you start consuming space. That is why SSD regularly kept on shifting less-performance-intensive data to traditional HDDs.

In event of a failure, they normally crash without giving any notification or alerts and it is difficult to retrieve lost data from the poor SSD. Hard drives, on the contrary, usually start showing alerts or notifications before failure. But the chances of SSDs going wrong are much less than HDDs.

Use Cases of SSDs

SSDs are mostly used in:

  • Mobile devices like smartphones, tablets, ultrabook laptops, etc.
  • High-end laptops
  • Removable SDDs are often used in high-end HD video cams.

Advantages of solid-state drives

  • Very fast read/write performance
  • Smaller in size and lightweight, making it perfect to be used in portable devices
  • The absence of mechanical components or any moving parts makes it ideal to be used in laptops and mobile devices.
  • High durability and reliability
  • Consume less power than HDDs which in turn increases the battery timing
  • Very quiet yet faster
  • Produce little or no heat

Disadvantages of solid-state drives

  • Costs much higher than HDDs
  • Limited storage capacity
