Yet another Samsung 860 EVO SSD deal.
Remimber to redeem you $17 Samung cash back.
Thanks to TA for the Original Computer Alliance 20% off Storewide @ eBay Post
I think you meant *Free with eBay Plus. Thanks OP, good deal!
I get confused with so many PLUS/PRIME/FIRST, thanks for your remin. 🙏
What service is "FIRST"
Kogan? I think…
Hasn't Cashback stopped on Ebay?
It's a manufacturer (Samsung) cashback offer.
Also, while Cashrewards and Shopback don't offer cashback anymore, Velocity and Qantas frequent flyer still offer points per dollar spent on eBay Australia.
Yeah, I was referring to the Cashback symbol on this post and the fact that there is no more Cashrewards on Ebay any more.
0.0% cashback by CashRewards
@FireRunner: That's something
Found it cheaper: $91 ($108 plus $17 cashback) with code PEOFY
This deal is better for eBay Plus users, brings it down to $83.
Ah my fault, didn't read properly.
Got my first 860 SSD, it's so light and "ratchety" is that normal? Or am I picturing portable SSD?
Yes, it's fine. When you get your first NVME drive without the plastic case you will be surprised again.
CA: 100 - 17 = 83
This: 108 - 17 = 91
EDIT: For non ebay plus users
CX500 is rated around the same speed, is that right?
if you mean MX500 then basically yeah, all sata ssds are capped at around 550mb/s read and write is a little less. Choose whichever one is cheaper cause the difference is around 1 or 2 seconds, but this with cashback is around 10-15 dollars more expensive for a higher quality ssd.
My EVO 860 is so light is that normal? or fake? Bought from them
it shouldn't be too heavy, website lists it at 50g. Computer alliance is reputable so unlikely they'll sell fakes, if you're really skeptical just try to register your ssd on samsung's website.
Nah it's normal they're very light
how do you redeem your cashback? I believe it'll be long over before you receive your SSD
You can redeem it by 14 July 2019, you can follow the link given on the OP.
ah i see, thanks
500GB Sammy 860 for $83 after cashback/ebay plus?
This or a Crucial P1 NVME m.2 for $92? link
I was wondering that myself. It's only $94 at Umart if you miss the sale.
NVME is MUCH faster than SATA so go for the Crucial if you have a compatible m.2 slot.
Here's a benchmark comparison of the two. The P1 is 83% "Hugely faster effective speed" than the 860 Evo:
2TB 860 QVO is $299.20 with code PLINK20 less $35 Samsung cash back. $264.20.
860 evo 500gb vs QVO 1tb
Will only use for games
