    didn't know MSY has an ebay store now!

      Me too. I guess stores like Futu and PC Byte are eating their lunch. Personally I haven't been to an MSY for at least 6 years, yet I'm spending thousands a year on IT, it's all Amazon and eBay.

      Sorry MSY, but years of 'sorry, that part is out of stock today, maybe stock next week".after lining up for at least 30 min and wasting a Saturday morning just meant I looked for alternatives..

        I find the easiest way to shop at MSY (other than eBay now I guess) is use their website and order for online pickup. They put the item aside for you and you pay when you pick it up. You can't order if it's OOS.

        You can also check more than one store by changing postcodes - sometimes stock is available at other stores for pickup rather than the closest one.

          Couldn't be bothered picking it up anyway, all that effort of driving, parking, walking, lining up…blah, blah, blah :-) it's so much easier to have to delivered to my door for the same price give or take a few dollars. Then I can spend that day doing actual fun things.

        Hey at least yours is open Saturday mornings to even be able to try your luck.

      •  

        I agree. Stuff MSY and their cc surcharge tbh

      •  

        I buy all small things from them like cables, adapters, mice etc.
        Like Diji I order online for pickupand orders are ready in a few hours and not few days like PLE.

    Damn shopping express deal got an extra $5 off me :(

    Is there a 1TB version?

    Look like 18 left and 8 sold.

    What happened to the price for SSDs, I remember them being really expensive just 6 months ago.

    •  

      Technology happened. Advancements happen. and chip manufacturers happened.
      SSD's have been slowly coming down for a while now, but recently it's been a faster drop.

  •  

    Went with the A400 instead, $103.10 delivered using the same code. Only 6 left though so probably not enough to warrant posting a deal here.

    •  

      Almost did as well, but the MX500 looks to have 86% faster write speeds (430MBps vs 230MBps) and 32% faster read (480MBps vs 380Mbps) on userbenchmark:

      http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Kingston-A400-480GB-vs-...

      A400 looks to be similar to a WD Green, where as the MX500 is close to a Sansung 860 Evo

      •  

        I'll add that I own an A400 120GB and benchmarks at around 200MBps write, which is pretty similar to what's on userbenchmark, and far lower than what Kingston claims (400MBps write for the 120GB model)

      •  

        I did look at the speeds etc, but figured I'm happy with a budget one given it's going into my 3 year old laptop purely to give it a last breath of life. I'm currently at the point of throwing it out the window, lol, it's still using a mechanical HDD so any SSD will be a massive upgrade for me.

  •  

    Im looking to update my build and was wondering what the major differences between M2 SSDs and standard ones are? The M2s are slightly more expensive and I was wondering if they are worth the extra money.

    •  

      M.2 are form factor. They were mostly made for laptops, but there's motherboards that support them. If you see a mx300 m.2 and a mx300 slab, they're basically identical.

      Unless you're talking about nvme, because those are faster ssds.

      •  

        Yeah I decided to google. I did mean NvmE

        • +1 vote

          They're faster. Like, much more so. But if you're not doing workloads that requires high amount of storage transfer, like video editing, you will barely notice the difference.

        •  

          @Wonderfool: So gaming wise would NVMe be worth the investment (my gut feel is no).

        • +1 vote

          @Piranha2004: It depends on your budget and what you want. It will give you faster load times (only marginal really), is that more important to you compared to FPS? If FPS is more important, perhaps save the money and put it towards a GPU.

        •  

          @Piranha2004: No. Absolutely not. NVME is for instant boot and super fast tranfers. For gaming it's simply not worth it right now with how much they cost compared to SATA3 counterparts.
          It's ideal to have a NVME as boot and a SATA3 for storage. Just my two cents.

        •  

          @Lolno234: honestly, with prices of ssd right now, you're better off just getting a 500gb ssd and call it a day. Anything bigger and maybe it's better dollar per gb to wait for the new optane + traditional hdds.

        •  

          @Wonderfool: Yes that was my intention (upgrading from a 120Gb). Just needed to get my heard around M2 vs Sata vs PCIe (NVMe)

    • +1 vote

      M.2 is a form factor (the bit you plug the drive into) not a storage interface.

      The interface can be either SATA or NVMe.

      SATA is roughly the same speed as a normal non M.2 SSD.

      NVMe is much faster than SATA. (although the relative difference to SATA SSD is much less than HDD compared to SATA SSD)

    Out of stock on MX500 500GB.

    MX500 500GB $119.70 here

    The 2.5" and M.2 SATA are back in stock and same price $121.10

    Too bad they don't do local pickup so I could save the $5 shipping
