[Prime] WD Blue SN550 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD $153.72 Delivered @ Amazon UK via AU


The $153.72 price only seems available if you have Prime. Shows as $161.93 with free delivery without Prime for AU stock with faster delivery. (there's already a deal posted for this).

I had previously ordered a more expensive drive, but upon doing a bit more research I settled for this more budget option.


Edit: 20/8 updated the prices, might be better off ordering from Amazon AU for $162 with free and much faster delivery than from the UK.

    Is this better than kingston a2000?

    • approx $160 local for a2000 1 tb seems to be the nice nvme deals at the moment, not sure what other drives that the a2000 doesn’t at the price point.

    • I believe they're both very much in the same ballpark. The review I linked has benchmarks of both drives. I opted for the SN550 as it seems to have a slight edge.

      • +1

        Also considering A2000 vs SN550 and they are similarly priced. Performance is also very close, only thing might be A2000 has DRAM.

    • I might have to actually buy Prime instead of making trials accounts with all these deals popping up :o

        Between amazon tv, music and free kindle books for the wife even without free delivery it is worth far more than any other sub in australia like netflix and shit.. Also far cheaper..

    • Nah, I don't Silicon power brand with my data, had a couple of their SD card failed on me several years back.
      I rather pay a little bit more for a respectable brand.

      • +1

        No offence but SD cards fail on ALL brands and are quite a bit different to to SSD's, ive had Samsung SD cards fail doesn't mean there SSD's are crap does it?
        Not defending them just dislike people thinking a bad experience = all their products are bad.

        • +2

          Well, if you had a bad experience with one brand on several occasion, wouldn't you think the same?

          • @kml22: No way would i say every product is bad cause of a bloody SD card.

            • @Axelstrife: My question to you is, if you were in my shoes, would you actually buy the same brand again? given Silicon Power is quite new into the SSD market, we don't know how reliable it is years down the track. For me for a 1TB or data, I rather stick with a well-known brand.

                @kml22: Yes if they have something i am after.

                Recently had a multiple bad experience with Deepcool's case fans 1 started making noises and was replaced and then a second fan did the same.
                wont stop be buying something from them in the future though.

                • @Axelstrife: This is NOT a good comparison, Fan making noise, fan still working, but they replaced it, which is good. Well did you lose any valuable data?

                • -1

                  @Axelstrife: The Samsung phones I've had have all run like total garbage, I had a computer monitor from them which I thought was pretty terribly designed, I understand these things don't mean every Samsung product is bad but personally the brand is irreparably damaged for me now. People don't like giving more money to companies that have made them regret doing that several times in the past.

                    @noodlesfordaddy: Having owned Galaxy S1,S2,S3,S4,S5,S6,S7,S8,S20 plus, Note 3, Note 4 i feel that i can say that that remark is absolutely crap. Samsung phones are generally regarded as amazing phones.

                    As the for the rest of your comment see my original comment i said it perfectly there, no need to repeat myself.

              • @kml22: No way I would trust any SSDs with my data without a strong backup process. I've had SanDisk, Samsung and Crucial ssds fail on me. Just the nature of the beast.

        • Agreed, I wouldn't trust silicon power or any of the smaller brand ssd with my data. Maybe could use just for a boot drive with no other data on it. Smaller brands in the old days failed a lot and nothing's changed now, just a lot more cheap brands lol. You will learn from experience I guess. Personally, I won't even trust a standard Seagate for anything too critical.

      • Equivalent to saying my samsung phone shat itself so fridges and tv must be trash.. I mean it's an sd card.. They are pure trash archaic tech (if you can even call them that) judging anything on a lowly sd card is (profanity) hilarious πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    No Dram on the SN550.

  • This isn't double sided? Need one to fit in a Xiaomi laptop

    • +1

      Appears to be single sided yes.

    • +1

      This one is 96 layers version and all 96 layers tech ssd is single sided. So just buy it.

      • just buy it.

        Whoa there Tom's Hardware!

  • How's the shipping time on this?

    • "Delivery Estimate:

      Monday, 31 August 2020 - Wednesday, 16 September 2020 by 9:00 pm"

      Beyond that I don't know sorry.

      • +1

        I have found the delivery time to be quite a bit quicker than the Amazon estimates in the past (by at least a week). These are normally worst case estimates.

  • How are these as external SSDs (using an enclosure)?

    • +1

      Better buy the cheaper sata drive unless you plan to use it on pci-e enabled board later on

    • +2

      Usb speeds are the bottleneck when used as an external drive.

    if this item is from UK, do i get warranty in Australia for this product?

    • Sold by Amazon AU means warranty needs to be supported by Amazon AU under Australian law.

  • Anyone upgraded macbook pro retina 2013 , ram or ssd? I have 4 gb ram model and 128 gb ssd. Looking to upgrade if that's easy to do and doesn't cost much.

  • Would there not be gst to pay if you buy this since it's being imported?

    • +1

      It's always been included in my past purchases

    Thanks OP.
    Been watching this one for a while…

    • Np, seems like it does extremely well in real world use. Every review I've read raves about it.

  • +1

    Just a reminder, if u want a 500gb ssd, SN550 is not a good choice. If 1tb ssd, this one is the a best balance between performance and price.
    For users who want to buy 970 evo plus or sn 750 something, most of u do not need such high performance and thermal control is not acceptable.

    • That's basically what I realised once I read a heap of reviews. As a gamer I was kind of just throwing money away if I went for a $200+ option instead of something like the SN550.

      I'll wait till the next series of Nvidia cards are out to really waste my money 😢

  • soo very tempting :-/

    if it wasnt for a not so great amazon us shipping experience I would have grabbed this deal… but damn thats a good price

    • Amazon always shipped my stuff Expedited International Delivery when I bought stuff oversea and I get them in a week, about the same time as most Aussie store :)
      Most of my stuff if it on Amazon I get it from Amazon, fast delivery, easy of exchange, anything I ask for warranty or refund they refund first then I shipped asked question later
      It never failed me EVER

  • -1

    Personally i prefer to actually get my item when i want it than wait weeks over a mere $40.. I'm impatient tho and see $40 as nothing as a business owner πŸ˜›

  • Thanks Op.Ordered. I was deciding between Kingston A2000 and this but I choose WD. Now I have to decide GPU either AMD or NVidia. 2070s vs 5700 xt which one should I choose? Decision..decision…decision…

  • Would this ssd fit into this lenovo laptop?

  • thanks got it from Amazon AU option, a little more expensive but still less than local stores. Just wondering does WD 5 year warranty apply on this?
