Introduction

Welcome to Myce’s review of the Corsair MP300 240GB NVMe SSD
(hereafter referred to as the Corsair MP300).

The Corsair MP300 is the first m.2 NVMe drive I have tested,
that uses only 2 PCIe lanes (whereas the Samsung 970 EVO and the Adata SX8200,
that I had tested recently, use 4).

This should give the Corsair MP300 a price advantage but
will it compromise performance – please read on to find out.
