  • Damnit, bought the Kingston A2000 last night for $7 less.

    • Price of A2000 has recently gone up. It was $165 a few weeks ago (it was possible to get additional 10% off during that special week from MSY).

  • +1

    2TB for $395 in case anybody's wondering.

  • Would this kind of drive work in an external case that could use USB C to connect? Does anyone know of a recommended case? This could be great to use as external storage, especially if it could get speeds up to 3,400/3,000MB/s externally.

  • How would these compare, in terms of speed, with Samsung EVO 970?

    • +1

      Speed wise they're a little bit ahead but price wise SP price is much lower considering the R/W speed.

    • +1

      970 EVO is faster, but the main question is do you have another storage device that can saturate even this NVMe SSD? If you going to use it mainly for OS booting, basic apps and gaming, NVMe is not cost effective.

      Few weeks ago, you could have bought a 1TB Kingston A2000 NVMe SSD for $149. Also, while I have mixed feelings about Samsung SSDs (I had 1 died, 1 having compatibility issue, and 1 having known slow read issue), for the failed one, the RMA (warranty) was top notch.

  • How reliable are they compare to Samsung m.2?

    • I've had the 512GB variant since early April of this year. No issues so far (other than it starting to crawl after I write a significant amount of data at once)

      • Temperature issues are a real problem for these. I wonder if they'll end up with fans too.

      • (other than it starting to crawl after I write a significant amount of data at once)

        That's not a reliability issue.

        • Yup, that's why it's in the brackets. Just an annoyance I wanted to mention as it kinda ruins the experience for me when it happens every other day (My usage tends to be write-heavy). Sure, it does get back to normal after about 5 minutes of being idle, probably runs TRIM in the background.

    • You need to specify which Samsung m.2. The oldest Samsung m.2 - 950 Pro?
      Anyway, no one has these long enough to really comment on reliability.

      Samsung 950 Pro continued the trend that Samsung's first gen of a new product line can be fairly average in terms of reliability. It too suffered from heavy thermal throttling. Obviously, 960 and 970 series addressed most of the issues.

      • Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2 NVMe

        • Most people would probably think Samsung 970 Evo Plus is more reliable (and specs wise, with more over-provisioning, one could argue that's the case). However, based on what we know, SSD reliability drops as the SSD gets older. With SSD makers now no longer showing wear level rating in SMART data, it is harder to judge the quality / reliability of SSDs.

          If it is a primary NVMe SSD for a system, it is better to get 970 Evo Plus. If it is secondary NVMe SSD, then you could consider this… though I expect more competition from glue and go type NVMe SSDs. It's a pity A2000 price has gone up.

    • I recently bought a 256GB one that was DOA, but might have just been bad luck

  • Any 2242 available OP?

  • +1

    Hi OP, any sale on 512GB? Thanks

    • For the time it took you to post your message you could have clicked the link and seen it was $105!

      • Thanks, saw that before post, just want to be true ozbargainer for asking “more” discounts:)

    • There's the Crucial P1 500GB from Futu_Online through eBay for $86.40. It's slower though.

    • As of now no sale for 512gb. Price went from 109 to $105. But right now i dont see the price going down yet again.

  • limit of 1 per customer :(

    • Yes, but if you're a Prime user that wont be a problem.

      • i have prime, can i just buy another one

        • Yes, you can. The minimum order is just for each package. (1 item per package) :)

  • Have this on a pcie4 mobo - max speed i can get is 1.8GBps on either 500GB/1TB

    • Check your motherboard manual. Most boards share SATA, PCIEX4 and m2 slot bandwidth. You might have hdds connected to same lanes as PCIEX4.

  • Thanks for that.
    Its review seems to be damn good over the internet.
    I also bought this enclosure https://www.amazon.com.au/Enclosure-External-ElecGear-NV-i9-… to be delivered tomorrow.
    I am gonna install this kid in my Xbox One S. Currently it has an external USB 3.0 2TB HDD and the games performance is already great instead of using the internal HDD
    I had grab priority delivery for tomorrow for $9.99 :P

    • +1

      Great to hear that. Please let me know if you have more questions and how did everything go. You will see the difference between HDD & SSD in performance. Once you go SSD you'll never go back to HDD :))

      • I already left the HDD era lol
        All the computers and laptops I buy for the company I work for, come with SSD Sata on them —- but for servers, HDD such as WD RED is still way better and safer than SSD for keeping the data. For the SO, SSD will do.
        Laptops are already coming with NVMe instead of SSD Sata by default.

        I was waiting for a great deal to upgrade my gaming setup :)
        If this NVMe is just like the awesome reviews I saw on tech blogs/youtube, I will be buying more in the future to build my home entertainment computer lol

        Thanks again

        • This for XB1S/X doesn't make sense. XB1S/X can at best support USB 3.0 (or USB 3.1 gen 1). That means it cannot even max out a SATA3 SSD through USB 3, let alone NVMe.

          Furthermore, for gaming, NVMe SSDs are overkill to be honest. You might think NVMe SSD is so fast with sequential read/write (compared to HDD). However, there are just two big issues: (1) that speed is SLC cache speed, not the true NAND speed (2) more importantly, in terms of gaming, even physical RAM is not fast enough, you need video RAM.

          Honestly, NVMe SSDs are suitable for servers (i.e. app servers - just not file servers because cost per GB is still too high). I test 970 Pro vs 840 Pro - cannot tell a difference booting Windows 10 and opening general apps. You really need to use NVMe SSDs in heavy I/O with high queue depth to really benefit from it.

          • @netsurfer: You are right in parts, but why buy an SSD Sata when you can buy a NVMe for almost the same price???
            The new console generation are coming with SSD by default in case you don't know.

            I don't see a overkill, a Samsung 860 EVO SSD Sata 1TB is at least 199 at MSY.
            At the end of the day I know I have a NVMe that I can take it and use whenever project I need to.

            "even physical RAM is not fast enough" are you sure you know what you are talking about??
            Compare a gaming computer running with 2666 memory and 3200 memory, then you tell me that memory is not fast enough.

            "you need video RAM" so you think that having the latest video card with 100GB is more important than an SSD/NVMe where the operational system is installed, where the game has to be read/??? Really??

            NVMe is suitable for servers??? I don't know if you know what you are talking about.
            If NVMe is for servers, tell me why laptops are coming with NVMe instead of SSD???
            I have a physical server where the SO is installed in a SSD and the data is saved into 2x WD RED Label with vibration protection.

            SSD Sata is becoming obsolete to give way to NVMe PCI. Sata connection has hardware limitation which cannot deal with how fast data is growing, and processor are getting faster everyday, that is why NVMe PCI is here so it can "talk" faster and closer with the processor architecture level compared with SATA. I will not even start the quantum computing subject.

            Anyways, I am not here to change your mind. Your position is not 100%, that is all.

    Bought the 1Tb, delivered,installed & cloned OS today. Significant speed upgrade on my Asus x570 TUF gaming mobo. I got 3.1Gbs/s read and 2.95 Gbs/s write.

  • If it was still at this price today, it’s a really good deal with the 12% cash back
