This deal is even better when you factor in the $2 cashback from Shopback.
Original Coupon Deal
1TB is tempting
bought 1tb. thanks, now looking for a mouse & 144hz monitor
.+ Delivery ($0 eBay Plus)
.+ Delivery ($0 eBay Plus)
Plus doesn't matter I think - checking on a non-plus account.
Free shipping with or without plus.
Was $15 for delivery when I first check… Now you're making me want to buy one LOL
ebay showed 0 postage but papal transaction have $15 postage
Yes, but eBay pays for that. Seller still needs to get paid for postage. That's how feeBay plus works.
Ozbargain regret. Bought the once from techmall for $87.20 when the previous deal went out of stock. :(
OzB needs an optional “mute” button! LOL
Thanks OP - needed a new lot of SSDs and this hit the spot nicely. Beats MSY by miles.
I'm getting a NAS soon, will this be a good option for a Synology 218play?
Do you need that much speed??
I don't know. Will it improve remote access streaming with Plex?
I'm not an expert, but from a quick search it may provide a small boost to initial boot, library scanning, access times, and transcoding. However, it's likely not worth the significant extra cost, especially if your library grows in the future. Additionally, mechanicals do just fine even providing and transcoding to multiple simultaneous users (unless you have a pretty extreme amount of users). The best option might be mechanicals (7200rpm and RAID preferred) for the files themselves, then a small SSD for Plex itself, metadata, and transcoding. But it's good to research to figure out what's best for you, based on the space required and amount of users.
Think next drive will be NVME …have enough 2.5" and would be nice to make better use of the optane slot than current 16gb …already have 500GB SSD as main drive.
Is there a speed/performance difference? Need some more storage for extra games and not sure which would be a better option
I have 2 x 128GB SSDs and they filled up after 5 games lol…
I would always been putting game install on a platter HDD. Too expensive to go SSDs for that.
Was looking to get a Samsung Evo for my PS4 Pro but after reading a few review, this would do just fine and better value for money.
Good timing op.
I went with a 860 Evo but I highly doubt having that or the mx500 would really change too much in the real world
I read up on the vs and the report is there's about 10% increase.
Let's say there's a 10 sec faster with SSD and that is really a 1 sec and $40 cheaper.. :)
Ps4 has its limits on speed
@Junnyjun: Ironic if you're playing Need For Speed.
Theres also an option for m.2 mx500
I'd personally go with that for the extra few dollars
I'm almost certain the M.2's are SATA anyway, so the speed increase would be negligible. I could be very wrong though.
for some people it’s not the speed for. m2 sata, but no need for power or sata cable …..very quick and easy install.
Want but don't need D:
This is OzBargain, even if we don't need it, we still buy it
I managed to resist thank the lord. I was so close to buying that 1tb one. Still +1 because it was a good deal.
$15 postage for non plus members.
The solution is so simple
Pay the extra $15?
Yes, a dozen times throughout the year
bummer out of stock on the 500
Code doesnt work for this seller
Worked when I used it 10 minutes ago and still applies when I add it on checkout now so perhaps you entered it incorrectly?
Got it working now, not sure what happened. Cheers
Does anyone use these smaller SSD's as achieve drives via hot swappable bays?
The 1TB version is currently $169 on Umart
Would this work as an external hard drive? What enclosure do you guys recommend?
Thanks in advance.
Works like any other 2.5" drive, but will be severely choked by an enclosure.
USB 3 enclosure? Not choked by much.
Which you recommend?
Wrong. Choked by a lot.
Unless you can show A DIY enclosure passing through the 500MB/s+ typical of an SSD.
Yes, any recommendations please?
USB 3.1 2.5 enclosure. Type C or Type A. Up to you.
Free postage, don’t need to be a plus member.
Bought for the PlayStation. Need to stay off ozbargain until the finances recover. Feel like I have trying to kick start the economy.
Crikey that's cheap! At this rate they'll be giving them away in cereal boxes soon!
500 GB is out of stock now :(
1TB is better value and has longer lifespan.
Waiting for Samsung evo 860, bought one a month ago for $140 hopefuly see it again at 160-170 mark before cashback ends.
Price protection. Simples.
never knew how price protection works? can fill me in? would be much appropriated.
Can anyone tell me if this Can be used in 11” 2012 Mac book air?
you'd need a m.2 drive from what it looks like here. probably no real difference in speeds.
no ….. apple is pcie and slight non std size.
No more stock for the 2.5" 500gb & 1tb.
Back in stock again so be quick
Pls get a sale for crucial p1 TIA
p1 tb seems to be cheapest nvme if you don’t never evo 970 speed …. i’d get a p1 if price is right and dump my optane.
Ive been looking for crucial p1 deals for almost 2 weeks now…yeah im looking for 1tb as well. The cheapest i could find is $169.95 on ebay
They have been as low as $124 :) at the right price i will snap one up too
@vid_ghost: When was that??
BANG just ordered the m.2 500gb
Excellent value for money.
postage of $15 popping up for me.
No more 2.5 500gb left
both 500gb and 1tb are back in stock
Looks like it can be shucked, right?
lol what? shuck an internal ssd?
yessir Like a Russian doll?
wow I didn't even know that was possible, I know you can shuck an external drive but why do you need to shuck an internal ssd?
@bayc0n: Some SSDs have an M2 card and adapter inside them. I've shucked them in the past for cheap M2 drives for laptops.
M.2 is as slow as SATA. Wouldn't it be better getting the m.2 NVME PCIe?
Depends on the games you play. If you play games like WoW, afaik you'll benefit from faster loading between areas.
Basically faster loading times.
Yes for desktops, because with some motherboards, when m.2/SATA mode is used, it actually disables a SATA port (so it doesn't make sense to pay extra for m.2/SATA as you get the same speed anyway).
For some laptops, ultrabooks and some NUCs (MiniPCs), they might be limited to m.2 only. For people who actually realise NVMe SSDs are overkill for most people, they would go for m.2 SATA. I used to have an i5 5th gen (Broadwell) NUC with 1 m.2 slot (no SATA port) - slim profile. I felt it was an overkill to use an m.2 NVMe SSD for a i5 U series CPU at the time (that's 2C/4T) so I just purchased an 850 EVO m.2 SATA SSD.
Out of Stock of the 500Gb & 1TB in 2.5i
There is stock except they jacked the price to $222 for the 1TB. This is pretty bad practice.
Anyone received shipping confirmation? Bought a 1 TB from them yesterday but haven't received any update yet.
They are pretty dodgy. Like i posted earlier, they saw that the SSD's are selling well, so they marked it as sold out and then bumped the price significantly. I have no respect for such sellers.
I was lucky to get one with free delivery.
Go to Futu if you are still interested. They seem to be the cheapest at the moment, although it looks like they have also raised the price (not by much).
