    Looking around on Amazon, and I came across this: The Sabrent Rocket (The PCIE 3 model). The 2TB model is on Amazon UK for £279.99 or $229 on Amazon USA which seems like a crazy good deal considering how expensive 2TB drives are. Reviews seem OK, unless you plan on cloning (which I don't plan on...
