Crikey that's cheap!
The code is only available to Plus members, not just the free shipping.
Damn, already had one plus trial and didn't use it. Signed up for those damn $99 Ear Pods which I missed out on.
At 1000GB/$100, this is almost a sweet spot for NAS/Data storage… haven't seen any SSD drive NAS' until I just looked for some, but looks promising!
4000GB/$120 for has been the sweet spot for personal NAS for quite a few years now. I do agree that 1000GB/$100 is a great sweet spot for SSD, but 1TB is really too small for a NAS. If I had plus, would pick one up for the Playstation though, or a good size data drive for a PC.
Would this be good for a PS4 Pro?
This suggests that it is: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/playstation-4/CT12858002
How’s it compare to a USB 3 ssd for load times on PS4?
From what little I've read, the Pro definitely has advantages when replacing the internal drive, but the regular internal is comparable to USB 3 SSD.
USB is a severe bottleneck.
@AssangesCat: PS4 apparently uses SATA II.
@tonyamazing: Yes, SATA III interface, but as @tonyamazing said the PS4 has some serious performance limitations on the internal bus, so you won't get anywhere near full SATA III throughput. USB 3 is a decent comparison. Should expect most game load times to reduce by 50-60%, however the upgrade is more dramatic on a PS4 Pro due to the improved bus throughput.
It gets confusing as another poster was comparing Interface Throughput from drive specs. You need to look end to end (drive speed \ interface speed \ and then your system speeds (eg: BUS). Different drives cope better with different work types.
PS4 just doesn't utilise SSDs well but there is an improvement over standard hard drives and SSHDs. If space is not a concern then its definitely worth it. If space is a concern then I'd personally go for a 2TB SSHD for the same price. Performance on the SSHD improves as you load the same stuff constantly.
God damn, at this rate we'll have 4tb at affordable prices soon
Thanks, got one. Why? Because it's cheap. Do I need it? Hell no.
Good price +1
Do i need this.. NO.. did i buy this no.. do i want this YES :)
Just got a Crucial MX500 500GB for $79 a while ago on this site.
And i now have two spare 250gb drives laying around.
I only have one evo 960 250gb laying around but around 10 2.5 hdds I replaced with ssds lately
Raid them in 0
@spammenotinoz: Failure rate of SSD's is much much lower than the RAID 0 HDD days.
Besides, if you are regularly backing up (daily / weekly & a monthly full system image) you're golden in a case of failure.
I have 3x BX500 240Gb drives for a similar reason.
Dont know where to enter this code. I got to commit to buy and didnt see a place to enter it and commited to buy to see it shows up. And it was still $148. F hell why is this coupon s*** overcomplicated.
Edit: I see it now. you enter the coupon code on the bottom and its restricted to ebay plus members. should be at the top.
contact seller and ask them to cancel order.. they should do it without issue.. its normal and happens allot
Ebay plus has a free 3 month trial that on offer. just remember to cancel it before the trial ends or u get charged $49
I would consider this is I really needed it, but since I don't desperately need this I'm going to continue to boycott ebay plus. I don't like paying just for the privilege of being able to shop at a vendor. At least with prime you get video and books.
I would strongly recommend spending a bit more and getting the MX series instead. It's faster, more durable, and outdoes some of the more expensive competition.
Irrelevant if you use it as a data drive
for storage only this is better when 99% of the time the drive isn't being used and when it is its only for reading it wont reduce lifespan. If you want to run games off it or plan to write allot of files to it all the time then YES the MX500 is the way to go
Warranted for ~50% more Total Bytes Written, and ~ 3.7%/2.0% faster sequential read/write speed.
From the same seller, ~42.8% more expensive (before any discounts on either item) @ $209.95, although Computer Alliance is selling it for $169 at the moment (~15.0% more expensive than the BX500 from shoppingsquare).
Good find, these are getting cheaper by the day! :)
Can anyone recommend an enclosure for this?
Thanks in advance.
I think you need to look for "uasp protocol"
Hi all, would this be suitable to pit into an external enclosure and use an an external editing SSD for lightroom and photoshop? Or would I be better off with a Samsung T5 or the like? Not really fuss about the size, as I'm aware the T5 is smaller. More concerned about durability and speed. Thanks
I have a similar question as well. I have purchased this drive and now I wonder if I can use this to transfer my macs photos library?
Transfer yes BUT as long as you keep a "Copy" elsewhere as all HDD die :-)
Cheapest Crucial 960GB so far?
nope! its been $1.15 cheaper a few days ago
regardless, still a very good price and would recommend this drive.
Next stop - sub $100.00 would be great
Does the 500Gb on sale as well? Cant really see it from the link as it show the much higher price
Wow. I dont think i need anymore that 8TB total NAS storage for home - maybe a future of SSD only storage is not too far away.
MY Slackware Linux, OS/2 Warp, Win95 and DRDOS 7 didn't put too big a dent in my 1.3GB monster when I got it either, though 16MB of RAM would have made the whole system sweeter…
Bill'll fill it.
Did the price go up? It's $146 before the code.
Bought this at $120 with an eBay coupon + eBay plus for shipping, happy with what I paid but they literally sent it in an envelope with tracking (like $3? Shipping option) and were charging $16 shipping.
Before deciding to buy this, suggest people first read the Tom’s Hardware review of the drive.
