    anyone swapped a ssd into their xbox one x?

    •  

      I just bit the bullet and ordered my second one of these specifically to swap out the 5400RPM HDD in the Xbox One X. $199.20 with free delivery, $45 cashback from Samsung and the 1% cashback was just too good to pass up.

      I have read a few conflicting reports about external vs internal SSD performance but the reality is utilizing the internal SATA III interface will provide the better throughput of read/write and also increase the GUI experience for the end-user.

      All that is required is to plug the new SSD into your computer, run some scripts via CMD to setup the correct partitioning of the drive and grab an Xbox One X offline installer from the internet and put it on a USB stick. Install the SSD using a T9 driver or bit along with a thin plastic spudger and then fresh build the console with the USB.

      I need to read up on warranty though and if I should hold off until its expired.

      •  

        I'd say cracking it open will void your warranty.

        •  

          Just an update, I did the upgrade and noticed slightly snappier times on the Xbox one GUI and significantly faster load times on Red Dead Redemption 2 loading screens (which was the tipping point for me trying this upgrade).

    Got one recently, do they send an invoice to everyone or do you have to request it?

      do they send an invoice to everyone

      Hopefully just to the person that bought it 😁

      Edit: You’ll get an invoice automatically which was my experience

    Now all we want is external ssds at his price.

    Who uses these as archive drives?

    • +3 votes

      This would be terrible as an archive drive, it's good and quick but if you truly want to archive things (i.e. you rarely read them), HDD is still cheaper per gig

      • -1 vote

        Actually, if you truly want to archive things onto a physical format and not in the cloud, HDD may be cheaper but because of its mechanical nature/moving parts, it is more likely to fail in a shorter time than SSD. I have some HDDs which I have not touched in a while (i.e. 2-3 years) and they have stopped working despite not having been used. Drop a HDD and it will also likely stop working. I would place more faith in SSD to last the distance and at this price of $155 for 1TB, it is actually feasible to use the SSD as an archive drive

        •  

          P.S. I didn't neg you.

          HDDs are better archive drives (GB/$ - HDDs are 4 times+ more cost effective). I have both SSDs and HDDs failed. SSD failures are generally worse. So far, 4 SSDs failed on me - all sudden death (cannot recover anything). 3 out of those 4 - I just didn't turn the relevant PC or laptop on for about 1 month. None of those 4 lasted more than 1 year. 1 failed SSD was Samsung, another one used Samsung flash chips. Some of the working ones also have minor issues. One of my SSDs recently lost all the files simply due to a minor electricity outage.

          The reality is that it is best to have multiple backups of important files. Also, it is not just the storage type. Certain models of SSDs are known to have issues (inc. reliability issues). Likewise for HDDs. You cannot just rely on the brand.

          •  

            @netsurfer: I've had the opposite experience to you. I have had many more mechanical hard disks fail than SSD drives. Maybe I have been lucky, but was an early adopter with SSDs (I remember paying $550 for a 120GB SSD in the early days) and have since owned multiple SSD drives of various well known brands. Given that almost all good laptops comes with SSD and not HDD nowadays, if SSD is really so much more unreliable than HDD, I would have thought there would be multiple reports worldwide people complaining of laptop SSDs failing. I don't have much faith in spinning hard drives anymore

            I don't dispute that per GB, HDD are more cost effective than SSD at all, but if one believes that SSD is more reliable than HDD and not the reverse, then the cost of the current 1TB SSD for $155 is not exorbitant for archival use compared to the past (eg $500 for 1TB SSD).

            Agree that multiple back ups (of SSD and HDD) is the key

            •  

              @Riker88: Some of the early SSDs were not reliable. Samsung 840 (non-Evo) was bad. OCZ had some bad ones earlier on too. It depends on how many HDDs vs SSDs you have. I have about 12+ SSDs currently in use (I setup PCs/laptops for family members). Flash technology isn't as good as most people think (esp. consumer grade ones). Samsung 840 was a good example. Samsung stuffed up their Planar TLC (even 840 EVO has issues) and the reason that their 3D TLC is okay is because they went with a far bigger node fabrication. Put it this way, Samsung don't have the guts to use 7nm for their TLC NAND (I doubt they dare to do that even with MLC). 60% of my SSDs are Samsung ones (rest are Crucial, intel and Sandisk so 50% failed SSDs were Samsung ones were not unexpected).

              Also, why do we have SD cards failing (and why Pro photographers want dual card slot cameras)? USB flash disks…

              Two of my SSDs at work were used pretty much 24x7 for a few years. HD Sentinel ranked 1 @ 60% health (despite no re-allocated sector). Another one (much newer) is at 90%. However, my oldest drive is a traditional hard drive. I also recall last year, one of the OZBers was telling me there is a big gap between proper enterprise grade SSDs vs consumer grade SSDs. I didn't quite believe the importance of power loss protection feature in SSD until one of my SSDs recently got data corruption.

              Consumer grade SSDs aren't designed for heavy writes (e.g. doing daily server backups). When Apple first used TLC NAND for their iPhones, they initially had reliability issue.

    Finally been waiting for this to restock.
    Now just waiting on the m.2 1tb…

    haven't even installed or claimed cashback from the last 1TB Samsung 2.5" sata …. hmmmm

    NVME and I'm in, sata mehhhh

  •  

    anyone tell me how to claim cashback ?

  •  

    My Laptop needs a 7.2MM thickness SSD. How thick is this one?

  •  

    It is an NVMe M.2 SSD?

  •  

    Any reason why 1tb samsung nvmes seem so rare on oz ebay?

    •  

      they cost more than the 2.5” equivalent due to volumes made and sold, as more motherboards and laptops use nvme we should see more volumes and price drops.

      one our new storage servers came with heaps of m.2 nvme slots ….so expect to see more demand and so hopefully volumes and price drops.

  •  

    Got One Thank OP

  •  

    If I buy 2, can I claim $90? or once per customer?

  •  

    Nice deal, this SSD is pretty good.

    Too easy. Received mine today. Migrated my data over from my 500GB 850 EVO with the Samsung software. Swapped the drive out. Sent my cashback request off. All good!

  •  

    Couldn't resist and got one. So, What will happen of they break their promise and I don't receive it before christmas?

  •  

    Bought a 1tb

  •  

    Can you claim more than one SSD in a single transaction? I'm thinking of putting 3 x 2TB 860's into a new RAID5. I can't quite understand the T@C's about limited fro claimant/household.
