Corsair’s MP600 Mini SSD is currently available for £100 at Scan UK

It wasn’t long ago that buying a M.2 2230 SSD was a challenging task. These compact SSDs were typically OEM only, and not a product that PC enthusiasts and upgraders cold readily buy off of store shelves. Now, mostly thanks to Valve’s Steam Deck, these mini SSDs are now becoming available from a growing list of manufacturers, with Corsair becoming the latest company to jump on the trend. 

Now, Corsair’s 1TB PCIe 4.0 MP600 Mini SSD is now available to purchase for £99.98 from Scan UK, offering buyers fast TLC-based M.2 storage for M.2 2230 compatible mini PCs. This SSD is ideal for Valve’s Steam Deck, ASUS’ ROG Ally, and portable PCs like Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8 and 9.

With sequential read/write speeds that can reach 4,800MB/s, Corsair’s MP600 Mini is a fast storage option that can blast past the speeds of most external storage options. Before M.2 2230 SSD upgrades became readily available, users of mini PCs and systems like Valve’s Steam Deck often needed to rely on MicroSD cards and external USB storage devices, options that are often lacking in terms of storage speeds or awkward to use and transport. With an M.2 2230 SSD, users can upgrade the internal storage of their mini PCs with ease. 

For £99.98, Corsair’s MP600 Mini SSD is a great value option for those who need an M.2 2230 SSD upgrade. That said, if your system supports larger, more readily available, M.2 2280 SSDs, you will likely find better value buying a larger M.2 2280 drive.

Thanks to the use of M.2 2230 SSDs in Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8/9 systems and in gaming handhelds like Valve’s Steam Deck, there is growing demand for high performance compact storage solutions. Corsair’s MP600 Mini is one of many new M.2 solutions that offer consumers M.2 2230 storage options, and we expect this part of the storage market to continue to grow, especially as handhelds like the ROG Ally grow the handheld gaming PC market.
