    This is what everyone was waiting for.
    Better performance than the 1 TB version.

    3.5% cashback from shopback, not too bad but could be better.

    Is Silicon Power reliable?

      do a ozb search on 'silicon power' and look at comments from previous ozb deals; seems like a lot of people question their reliability; which has made me wary of getting on previous silicon power deals.

        Why is it that i always seem to find you with stupid comments, care to elaborate on why "there is no such thing as a reliable SSD"

          Deciding on the SSD reliability based on brand is a bad idea. The actual model is far more important than the brand itself (basically, what's inside is far more important than the sticker and the brand logo).

          For example, I had a Samsung 840 SSD which died within 9 months. I still have a 840 EVO, which at best has a slow read workaround. My Samsung 950 is unbootable on intel H370 board when placed in the second m.2 slot (and this is a board for 8th gen Intel CPU) - none of my other m.2 SSDs has this issue, even my cheapest m.2 NVMe SSD - I basically went out and bought the cheapest 1TB NVMe SSD to address this 950 issue. Furthermore, it is known that 950 has a pretty heavy thermal protection performance penalty.

          Not even Samsung flash NAND is that great as I had 2 other SSDs using Samsung NAND flash and both failed soon after 1 year - unless you want to argue it was the controllers which failed..

          This SSD is basically Phison controller with Toshiba TLC NAND chips.

          I also have an SSD which suffered from complete data lost once (and it was setup to do dual boot so had to re-do the lot). My colleague had a similar issue with his Macbook Pro's SSD - and he was only able to recover most, but not all of it from his Mac partition Time Machine backup. For both of us, we did not backup our secondary OS, so that part is gone completely.

          When you have old SSDs and you check the actual quality and factor in the wear levelling, you do realise the quality of SSD does degrade. Also, another scary part is cheaper/inferior SSDs don't seem to work well as cold storage. You are better off running SSDs regularly. A lot of my failed SSDs were hardly used and were used for cold storage and when I needed to use them, they just died.

    Doesn't seem like a great deal when 1TB was $150 a few months back.

    SSD prices may be on the way up after the … accident … that reduced NAND supply.

      Demand is very weak. I doubt some supply disruptions will cause a significant increase in price.
      When as SP 1 TB NVME ssd ever been $150? The cheapest I know is $180

    •  

      Hi, Diji1. I dont remember 1TB was $150. Lowest price was $180.5

    Hi rep, for warranty claims, will I have to send overseas or au distributor?

      Hi, Neosin

      For warranty claims, kindly contact Amazon AU.

    •  

      You can get this slightly cheaper from Amazon US. However any warranty issues will probably be handled quicker if you buy from Amazon AU

      •  

        Anyone who purchase from Amazon US will be charged the additional tax. So its not cheaper as you said.

        •  

          Do amazon handle the warranty for the full 5 years though? Don't they normally refer the customer to the manufacturer or individual store after like a month? I'm not sure that's why I am asking.

  •  

    Was hoping for it to come back down to $350 like back in July.

  •  

    Gah, I want a well priced 2TB NVME drive, but not from Silicon Power…

    edit: maybe I'm being too harsh. I'll check out more reviews.

      The main issue with this is price - not well priced enough. Performance is not an issue for most people. Reliability is a bit of a question mark, but don't overestimate the reliability of SSDs. Had bad experience with various SSDs from various makers (including Samsung and Sandisk). Being an early adopter of Samsung's new SSD tech has proven to be a costly mistake.

      AFAIK, SP seems to be quite ok. Perhaps not quite as reliable as Samsung or Intel but far better value and better than many other brands
