    Good price for a DRAMless SSD (for use as storage drive e.g. for your game/Steam library).

    However, for a main system drive, it is recommended to pay for a little more and get a SSD with DRAM (e.g. MX500, WD Blue 3D/SanDisk Ultra 3D, 860 EVO etc.)

    Thanks for posting OP! =)

  • I second that i thing silicon power are ok but brought them before and found reliability issues. Good prices though

  • $149 for the 1TB version. Cheaper than a few others.
    That's pretty good.

    Title says SLC SSD, got me excited until I realise it's SLC cache.

    • Agreed. Was going to cast a negative for this misleading title, then saw this:

      Inappropriate uses of negative vote

      Incorrect or missing information in title or description

      Well, I disagree with the rules that pointing out literal fraud is 'inappropriate use', but I'll still abide by it. Associated posters should be held to stricter standards. The Amazon listing is correctly titled, but OP has intentionally and conveniently shortened it for the OzBargain post.

      All SSD caches (so far) are SLC. These are not SLC SSDs.

      They're still decent SSDs by a decent company for any home users, though, so it's a pretty good deal considering the $149 1 TB is fiercely competing in QLC territory. That's the real deal here.

      • That's due to some hasty editing on my part, was out and on mobile and didn't quite get the title right. This should be corrected now.

  • 3d storage.
    When's smellivision coming to SSDs?

  • This or the Kingston 480gb currently on sale

  • Will it be ok for playing games? Or should I hold out for an SLC thingo?

    Price changed. now is $74.99
