Just read that these are being discontinued. I imagine they weren't very popular due to the very high pricing?

That being said i just ordered a 960GB 905P for a tad over £400, it looks like a plain SSD and isn't the fancy PCIE form factor, however there doesn't seem to be any difference between them other than that from what i can gather. If I've made a mistake I'll send it back, but they seem to be at least double that price nearly everywhere.

I sold my 480gb a few years ago and got about £300 for it.. I used it to speed up my 640gb hdd up, and it did a amazing job but it sat underneath my gfx card increasing the temps a bit.

Great things but launched in a time when no one really cared about HDD speed.

Worth keeping or selling on and buying something else? Seems others are trying to sell them on eBay for over £700

This one has a cable to connect to the M.2 port
