    damn i paid $340 for it thinking i scored a bargain!

  •  

    Can I use them in my NAS?

    • +3 votes

      why would you want to?

    • +1 vote

      Would only be any use on a 10 Gigabit network. Otherwise you're capped at ~125MBps on Gigabit, no faster than most hard drives.

        The advantage of SSDs over HDDs have never been simply sequential throughput, though that is important. What is much more significant is the increase in random IOPS, which is why Windows boots so much more quickly on an SSD and why it is so much more responsive. This translates into vast improvements for database servers and file servers hosting mostly small files, as the SSDs would seriously reduce their latency and seek times. There are plenty of cases where SSDs are useful in a NAS or server, though you are correct regarding sequential throughput.

          Very good point, I didn't even think of that. Would such a small point be of any value in a NAS (on a Gigabit network) at this price compared to an HDD?

          And much lower power consumption

        • +1 vote

          @deanylev: Yes and no. Several things you might want to take into account are that 1TB HDDs are around $70 and they tend to bite the dust every few years in a NAS (I've had ones fail in as little as two years). SSDs are much more reliable and because they don't have moving parts, should last much longer. Even if you assume that they'll last 2 - 3 times longer than HDDs, the value equation isn't so bad anymore.

          On top of that, it depends on what you want to do with your server. If you're running a media server, then no. However, if you're running a small business/office with a handful of employees who are accessing the server or working off it all at the same time, then yes, it could potentially be very useful.

    Does Amazon France accept Aussie credit card or Paypal? Thanks in advance.

    •  

      No paypal, but aussie CC should be fine.

      Bought something off them to ship in France with my aussie card with no issue.

        Thanks for your quick reply. But do I have to sign up with Amazon France or can I just use my Aussie account to sign in with Amazon France? Sorry but I haven't bought anything from Amazon for years now…..

  •  

    Ayee just bought the PNY one yesterday, I'm gonna end up with a stack of SSDs..

  •  

    Still not as cheap as this deal for price for GB: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/237081

    Huh I have $1.48 pending from Amazon…here's hoping lol

    Came out as $339 for me.

    Is SSD Price going downhill or is it just a rare gem I see right now?

    • +10 votes

      The price of this stuff will always fall. Combine that to our dollar slowly creeping upwards again and we're looking at some good prices.

      That being said, if you don't need one now, I can almost guarantee when you do need one, they'll be cheaper again!

        Thanks for convincing my wallet to not going brutal.

          This is sound advice - the trend is down, down down for SSD prices. They haven't really plateaued yet and don't think they will especially with Samsung's new technology coming out this year (2tb-16tb ssds)

  •  

    Nice price picked up the one from Amazon Germany a couple of weeks back. Great little drive.

  •  

    perfect timing
    just had a HDD fail yesterday!

    should i wait for the 850 pro to be reduced? I'm getting so many different opinions on forums. I get that it is not that faster but it is built with higher quality parts and is backed by longer warranty. I'm upgrading from my ocz vertex3 to run windows 10 to game and move around allot of uni work. any opinions? i want something to remain relevant speed wise for the next 3 years atleast. or should i wait another 6 months until a new improved product comes out?

    • +2 votes

      The 850 EVO is considered more than reliable enough for consumer usage with a 5 year warranty as well. It also has one of the best performances among non enthusiast grade drives. For general work/gaming it should be perfectly fine :)

      PRO might only be useful for businesses that need the 10 year warranty, cases where the extra speed is needed (4K video editing, etc.) or people with a lot of extra cash :P

    Does anyone know…I have 2 500GB drives which are separate volumes from each other logically…can I put those two in RAID-whatever-the-number-is with this 1TB for faster read speeds?

    EDIT: One's an 840 one's an 850.

    If so, will I need to create a spanned volume across the two?

    God, my PC is really acquiring individual SSD/HDDs…this will be number 5 lol

    • +1 vote

      I think some RAID boxes like the Drobos allow to combine any mix of capacities and it'll stripe across them. You may have to lose what you have store on the two drives though.

      •  

        I was thinking more about a software solution annnd I just realised your second point. Yeah, I might give it a miss…I have spent too much time formatting and reformatting, copying, restoring…lol

        Thanks for the reply though.

        •  

          it is possible in any case, even if the drives were different sizes (with some caveats).

        •  

          @sabaramo:

          Wait…there's no reason I couldn't have the 1TB as the primary, shift everything over to it and then mirror it onto the two 500gb drives which I could logically link with a spanned volume…hmm…

  •  

    Would this be any good in a PS4?

    •  

      If the PS4 has a USB 3.0 port AND it can support this amount of storage, I would say, yes it would be great for a PS4.

      But it all depends what you want to do with this storage (Games? Music? Video?) and what Sony allows in terms of hardware. I'd say it would only really be worth it if you were storing games. Music and video can go on an HDD with no lag.

      EDIT: idk if the changed this but Xbox/Playstation always required hard drives to be formatted in FAT-32, which is just archaic (max 4GB files and then it starts chopping them into segments of files if they go over). Not that important, but something to bear in mind.

      EDIT 2: You're talking about internal aren't you?

      I know it will be very fast, perhaps even overkill. I don't know about compatibility.

      PS4 only supports SATA 2 so you wouldn't get the full benefit of the Samsung EVO.. probably better to get SanDisk Ultra II 960GB for ~AU$273.50 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M8ABHVQ?psc=1&redirect=t... (sale ends in 5 hours)

  •  

    It's getting close to what I want to pay for a 1tb SSD (and its a samsung evo to boot)

    Yes pun was intended

    ordered 3 ($980.77) and just snuck in under the tax threshold!

    Showing 339.21 AUD for me ( Delivered)

    Being a French drive, I would expect it to be more temperamental, and have hugely increased latency ("je le ferai demain….")

  •  

    Bought an Samsung 840 1TB for $425 back in August 2014 thinking it was a good deal. Haha..

    Bought it for $339.21 AUD.
    Thanks OP!

  •  

    Merci OP what a great deal - I shall enjoy every last octet of my 1 To drive!

  •  

    Thanks! Bought 2 (or at least I hope so), as i was just fumbling through the French checkout process

  •  

    Got charged $329.25 with Citibank Plus Debit Visa.

  •  

    How are you guys even buying this, every address I enter it says cannot post??

    •  

      still works for me. Put in my work address in East Melbourne and it comes to ~A$340

  •  

    Can anyone confirm that this is NOT a M2 ssd?

    Asked a friend about whether this would suit me and he said as long as it's not a M2.

    Some cursory googling seems to indicate this has something to do with the form factor whatever that is!

  •  

    Just pulled the trigger on this, ended up coming to $342.03 for me with a 28 degrees card so shouldn't be any further fees or charges.

    • +3 votes

      noooooooooooo, you're supposed to pay for it in euros (so in the final screen, change the 342.03 AU$ into 221.04 euros), so you'll get it for ~$328 with no further fees or charges.

      • +2 votes

        Just cancelled and re-ordered in euros.

        Thanks for the tip lyl, hopefully it all works out (all these pages in French were so disorientating)!

  •  

    Finally decided this price is "good enough" and pulled the trigger… Eur 221 delivered got charged to my card as $332 AUD; much better than Amazon's exchange rate and I don't even have a special card. Going to replace my two 256Gb Games SSDs and use them to upgrade other computers/laptops. TY GG

    Anyone received theirs yet? How long does shipping take :)
