Our Verdict

Crucial"s P2 is perfect for a cheap M.2 NVMe boot drive sầu. It offers enough performance to lớn differentiate itself from the SATA competition, but it isn"t as competitive against higher-kết thúc NVMe SSDs that cost only a few bucks more. It also might come with slower components in the future, so be sure to vì your research.

Crucial’s P1, the company"s first M.2 NVMe SSD, was a bit of a disappointment with slow performance & aý muốn the lowest endurance specifications on the market. It surely didn’t scream value as we had hoped it would. Crucial’s new P2 aims lớn be a better value with Phison’s entry-màn chơi E13T NVMe SSD controller & Micron’s lathử nghiệm 96-Layer TLC flash under the hood, though. Crucial’s P2 may not be the Best SSD on the market, but it offers multi-gigabyte throughput at low price points, blowing SATA SSDs out of the water.

The SSD market is quite crowded, and if you’re on the hunt for a new SSD for your system, you probably notice there are innumerable options. If you’ve sầu got the dough, you may want lớn consider one of the newest PCIe 4.0 x4 options, say the Seagate FireCuda 5đôi mươi or Sabrent’s Rocket NVMe 4.0. But, if you’re a bit strapped for cash, then one of the many low-cost SSDs, like Crucial’s MX500 or P1, might be up your alley…until you suddenly realize that Crucial’s new P2 is now available, potentially offering significantly more performance at the same price. Overall, the P2 is perfect for a cheap M.2 NVMe boot drive, making it a clear contender for the top spot amuốn value SSDs, but it appears Crucial will make the drive sầu with a variable build of materials, meaning the internal components could change over time. That means you"ll need khổng lồ vì chưng your research before you plunk down your hard-earned dollars.

Crucial’s P2 is the company’s lachạy thử M.2 NVMe SSD for the low-budget crowd. In fact, the P2’s pricing might cannibalize the company’s MX500 sales just as much as it competes with other companies. The 250GB và 500GB capacities are well-suited for basic boot and application requirements, but although Crucial lists a 1TB SKU, it isn’t available at the time of publishing. The entry-level P2 SSDs are priced at $50 for the 250GB model và just $65 for the 500GB Model, though.

The P2 features Dynamic Write Acceleration, which essentially programs a pool of TLC flash as faster SLC for faster write performance. After it fills, write performance will degrade, which we will cover in greater detail on the next page. Crucial rates the P2 khổng lồ deliver sequential performance of up lớn 2.4/1.8 GBps read/write và up lớn 170,000/260,000 read/write IOPS, but performance suffers a bit with the smaller 250GB và 500GB capacities. The 500GB’s sequential write performance is even rated below the 250GB Model at just 940 MBps.

The drives come with RAID ECC và Phison’s fourth-gen LDPC that has multiple levels of adaptation. As a result, Crucial’s P2’s endurance ratings, though they are low for TLC SSDs, aren’t as offensive sầu as some of the QLC SSDs we’ve sầu looked at. The company rates the 250GB P2 up to 150TB of writes within its five-year warranty, & adds another 150TB of write endurance with each doubling of capađô thị.
