BUY BUY BUY

(Yes, this is a good brand. This is great for a gaming drive)

 

*3.5 hours left in lightning deal as of posting this

 

Update: https://www.rakuten.com/shop/thekeykey/product/220391/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app

 

GREAT drive for gaming, ridiculously quick read speeds, write speeds slow down after storage fills up above 75%ish, so I wouldn’t recommend it as an OS/boot drive

BENFEI USB 3.0 to SATA, USB 3.0 to 2.5” SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable w/UASP Compatible for 2.5 inch HDD and SSD https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F7WDZGT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_wjsTCbFMKDHM3

 

But, I’m not sure you’d see much difference with SSD vs a 7200rpm HDD over USB 3.0 on an Xbone (either is ridiculously faster than the stock internal HDD, though)

I bought an internal ssd, put it in a $15 USB 3.0 shell and plugged it into my ps4. Works great, cuts load times down to nothing for games like the division and destiny.

I actually have a spare 128GB sitting in my PC that I don't use at all, this is a brilliant idea.

Still up for ~$100.

 

You’d be better off spending the extra $2 on the Sandisk SSD Plus now, or the extra $12 for the Adata SU800, both have faster write speeds and potentially a longer lifespan due to the 3D plating (the SU800 is basically an MX500 with a different cache iirc).

Great thread to post in then? :p 

I have a 2tb SU800 I got for $195 + a 512gb MX500 + a 512gb Samsung 970 Pro m.2 :sun:

I think $80 will be the common price for 1TB by the end of the year.

 

I'm glad flash storage is dropping because I plan to build a new PC this year, probably this summer.  Cheaper RAM and NVMe prices have me salivating.

QLC though ehhhhhhhhhhhhh

 

I'm not sure that the reduced endurance is significant compared to TLC considering they're both using 3D-NAND. Unless there's a lifespan bench/thing I missed? :confused:

As long as you dedicate these kinds of SSDs to storage only where 95% of the activity are going to be reads with few writes, endurance shouldn't be a problem.

 

Plus it has a 5 year warranty and a 400tbd rating
