Cheapest price I've seen, better than my previous two bargains here and here

The 500GB has a sequential write of 2300MB/s and 300TB endurance whereas the 250GB has a sequential write of 1500MB/s and 150TB endurance. Also, don't forget that an SSD performs fastest with 10-20% free space, so for ideal performance don't fill the whole SSD.

    GAAHH. Igrabbed the 960evo for $104 and slapped a heatsink on it just last night.

    Dang. This some good pricing OP.

  •  

    Need a cheap deal for a motherboard with 6 m.2/NVMe slots. Too many of these good m.2 SSD deals but not enough motherboards with slots to use them.

  •  

    Got a 500gb 970 EVO during one of the previous sales. So tempting to buy another for the second port on my motherboard.

  •  

    don't have m.2 slot

    need the $71 intel 360gb 535 MLC drive deal to comeback

    As with every one of these threads i have to write.

    Please go for the 500GB version, even if you dont need the space.
    Its MUCH faster in real life use due to the nature of TLC NAND.

    Feel free to read my other posts for more info, im not writing it out again.

      Awesome, thanks for sharing!

      Haven't heard of that seller before though, and while not too bad they only have 99% positive feedback with the majority of the 1% not having their order shipped.

      I'd prefer to spend the 90c as I've bought from Computer Alliance many times before, but thanks for sharing, I'm sure that'll be a better deal for a lot of people :)

      Just received mine today

    finally 970

    Planning on assembling a PC in the next few months. If you were in my position would you be jumping on this now or hold out?

    • +2 votes

      I'm jumping on it, but if you're building in a few months, not immediately I'd actually suggest you wait. NAND flash production has just started increasing again after staying the same for a loooong time, which is why there's so many SSD deals lately, and the prices should just keep getting better, unless there's a shortage again.

      Of course, I could be wrong and there could be a shortage very soon causing the prices to rise again, but upping production was actually planned a while back and we're finally seeing the effects of it now.

      Up to you, but that's my $0.02.

        might be more brands doing NVME, eg crucial does M.2 Sata, different controller and they could be doing NVME,

        so it's not just NAND supply, it's new brands of NVME drives coming onto the market

      I'd be all over this like white on rice. Samsung 970 EVOs are basically top of the line, even among M.2 NVMe SSDs, and don't get discounted very often. I paid $289 for a 500GB one just a few weeks ago and thought that was a decent price, and staticice doesn't show any less than ~$280.

      Sorry, didn't see the "next few months". Uh - how many months? No point spending money now only for the part to be sitting around gathering dust. <1 month, get this. Otherwise, wait until you have a better idea of what your system looks like, budget, etc.

      •  

        Thanks for the reply. Ideally assembled before the bf5 release in October. Hopefully get a clearer picture of the gpu landscape in a few weeks as well. The system definitely will have an m2 nvme drive in it and most likely this one.

    The 250GB drive is pretty good for Ryzen 2000 users with the new 400 series motherboard, which can utilised the bundled StoreMI software.

    •  

      300 series dont have?!!

      I just bought 370 crosshair hero!

      •  

        It's a 400 series chipset feature only. But while useful in certain situations, I'm not sure it'll make a difference for most people, because with separate SSD and HDD, it's still: "OS and programs on SSD, files and media on HDD".

        Oh and reading more, apparently StoreMi only supports up to 256GB SSDs.

        •  

          @ywaa1124:
          For 300 series users, you have to pay, US$20, to use the software

          Dannnnnngggggggggggggg

          @ywaa1124:

          Yea =S (AU$28 for basic version, which is actually still 128GB lesser fast-tier storage than StoreMI, http://www.enmotus.com/amd)

          But I think I'm still going to get a B350 board for the PC I'm currently building, as it is going to be cheaper than a 400 series board, and available now instead of end of the month or next months. Also I've already got a SSD with sufficiently large capacity (>256GB).

          Having said that, StoreMI/FuzeDrive is still a very good option (even if having to pay) for those in tight budget situation, but still want HDD capacity storage at SSD level of speed.

          For example, buy a 1TB HDD (WD Blue $59, MSY) and pair with a 128GB SSD (~$50 during sale, or ironically, for best result, an Intel Optane drive, 32GB $79, 58GB $159), then you'll get 1TB storage speed on par with SSD at $109 (or $138~$218 if opting for Optane).

    Can these be used to replace the ssd in a Mac book air?

      I don't know why but he's in the penalty box.

        Think it was for soliciting votes lol, the user commented a few days ago saying "Thanks, do you reckon you can upvote?" or something along those lines

        • +1 vote

          Yeah nobody can remind someone to upvote anymore but you can still say pretty much anything you want & neg.

          He's posted 2 good deals in a row, so I upvoted both.

        •  

          @WatchNerd: Thanks!

          Yeah, was in the penalty box for another comment I made, but to that user and referring his comments on my other deal and how they always comment on deals saying that they've used them, but rarely ever upvote. It was then hidden as offtopic and about half an hour later I got put in the penalty box for the comment that was hidden, reason given was "Trolling: Level 1".

          I'm mostly just surprised my comment was both marked as off topic, then removed and I was put in the penalty box for trolling, yet comments like these remain untouched. If I didn't know any better I'd think that users are being given preferential treatment.

          I think that users can't remind people to vote on a deal when they comment that they've used the deal is a bit silly, especially as even if it's just a genuine reminder the comment will now be removed, but staff decisions aren't something that users have any say in, so unless someone makes a poll in the forums, it's unlikely to change.

          I'm just lucky nobody asked any questions on this or the other deal that I can answer, because if they had, I'd feel really guilty about not being able to respond.

          Anyway, now I'm out it's time to spread some love in the form of upvotes to users that help me get good deals!

          You solicited votes. Wrong. You know the rules as a poster. You simply had your comments removed. No penalty box. But you wanted to argue against a site rule. You don't make the rules here, you abide by them.

          Secondly, you sought out this very same user who you had an argument with in a prior thread and started another argument. This time a penalty box for trolling which is exactly what you did. Seems quite fair and appropriate to me. If you are going to go around stalking others then you will cop the ban stick.

          It seems now one of your mates WatchNerd is also in the penalty box. Perhaps you guys are starting to treat this site as your own and think you run it. Poor form. We are all just users here and should respect others.

        Sometimes I forget to vote; this SSD is a great price.

  •  

    biggest question: will the 970 work with bitlocker/edrive (hardware encryption) where there was a lot of noise with the 960 not.
