    Wow. Gotta say, that's actually not bad. Is this the lowest 1 TB 860 EVO ever been?

    TO OP: Thanks for posting this :)

      I think the lowest I have seen this was about $225 about 2 months ago. This is still a very good price.

        @iPatch,

        ahh right right I see… Hmm I might just buy the 500 GB MX 500 for $119 and save the $100 AU for something else for now.

    Will not buy until 1TB reaches <$200

      @Homr,

      Well… yeah SSD is still very very expensive compared to HDD but you have to admit, these their prices have significantly lowered compared to what they were like a year ago. I remember I bought an 850 EVO for $320 AU ON SALE back in 2016 and now a 1 TB 860 EVO is $240 ish, not bad mate. I do hope that they keep going down though until it reaches parity with HDD price (one can dream).

        I don't think that will ever happen. Once upon a time, people used tapes for storage, HDDs were the good stuff (like SSDs now). Eventually they became cheap enough and large enough that people didn't care for tapes anymore. Tapes are still around, still cheaper than HDDs.

        I think the same will happen with SSDs. They won't get cheaper than HDDs, but cheap enough that normal people won't really need HDDs anymore.

          Hmmm that's a good point mate. Yeah maybe that's what's going to happen haha.

          I once paid ~$400 for a 20MB hard drive.

          No typo.

          This SSD is cheap but will get cheaper.

      well the Aussies dollar isn't helping to get prices down.

  •  

    use this for a while, highly recommend! beat WD easily

  •  

    To think I bought 1TB EVO 850 for $400 just two years ago on 20% off sale…

    Or 500GB EVO 850 for ~ $280 when it's first released…

    Anyway yeah this really cheap. I got 1 for $265.30 last month. 850/860 are solid as far as SATA III SSD and pretty much gold standard for non Pro.

    This is cheap!

    I bought one a few weeks ago with a 20% off code, and thought I did well… but this is cheaper!

    Good find OP.

    Really cheap but honestly as a recent ssd purchaser (500gb Samsung 860 Evo and 2tb Micron 1100) just go hard drive.. unless you have adhd you won't notice the difference especially if you are a patient deal hunter like myself.. Well I failed because I bought in but for example you can get about 8tb-10tb worth of hdd for same price as this ssd at $250 AUD.

    Unless you will be making money on the machine the extra seconds are not gonna really matter to you because time is money friend.

    What I mean is if you are not rich like myself but very frugal this is a very terrible buy as it really only helps a tiny amount of speed and I have all the time in the world.. Until I start to try and develop.. Just my two cents it may be a bit gibberish but yeah sometimes I wish I got more hard drive space instead of ssd maybe higher hdd ratio.

    Gotta go fast all the time is sometimes not a good thing especially when you are going fast in the wrong way.

      SSD battery life improvement is quite good. I was considering putting a M.2 SSD in my laptop and using the existing 2.5" Bay (which has a 250GB SSD from the factory) with 2TB HDD.

      Any good deals on M.2 SSD for laptops (Thinkpad Yoga 460)

      I cannot imagine going back to HDDs for my primary/OS drive. Especially during boot up.

      I've fixed plenty of PCs and laptops for friends and family and installing an SSD is the first thing I try before upgrading other parts or recommending a new machine. I've nbever seen anyone unimpressed by how much that simple upgrade improves performance.

      Buying an SSD for an old machine might be the most frugal thing you can do because I think it has the best increase in price to performance ratio. HDDs are the bootleneck in most systems. Drive speeds that are too slow (especially 5400RPM drives found in many laptops) & horribly fragmented drives (because most users have no idea about defragging) are two of the worst offenders.

    How hard is it to put one of these in a late 2014 Model Apple Mac Mini?

    Has a slow 500gb in there now with 4gb ram which I’m told is soldierd in

    • +1 vote

      I consider this an easy upgrade however it comes down to the person doing it feeling comfortable around hardware. Take your time and it will be fine

      It's a little fiddly to replace the HDD, especially if Apple have mounted the factory one in the "top" position, as you basically have to remove everything from the case to access the bay. ifixit.com have a step by step guide, but just make sure you take it easy with the fan, wifi, and led/IR connectors as they're easy to break.

      It's unfortunate they soldered the RAM in on the 2014 models - that's partly the reason I bought a 2012 model instead (and the 2012 model has QC i7 processors in all but the entry level model).

        Yer they are nice systems but they were asking more $$ then I wanted to pay and I got this one for high $400s brand new

        •  

          I've been waiting for a while to get the right deal, and recently picked up a 2012 server model (2.3GHz QC i7, 16GB RAM, 2x 1TB HDD) for $425 which I was really happy with. The don't seem to go on eBay for less than $700-$800 normally, and I've seen some sell up over $1000 which is just crazy!

          @dm01:

          Yer that’s a good price
