Crucial P1 1TB M.2 SSD $132.95 + Shipping
Crucial P1 500GB M.2 SSD $72.95 + Shipping
$12 Shipping to Melb. Seems excessive to me.
Sounds about right for registered post tbh. Still cheaper than Amazon
Can anyone help me to know what benifits I could reap if I put these in Synology ds918? I am mainly using it for Plex and as centralised storage for all my photos and videos . Thanks
Are you having any performance issues at all? If not, then no benefit (AFAIK the m2 slot is used for caching only)
Yeah…haven’t run in any issues as I am owning from last 1 year. Thanks for replying
So I put in my cart 2x SSD + 2x USB-C enclosure. Total Shipping $34.99 ($39.99 - $4.99 discount combined shipping). ummm how about no?
No shipping combined? best way to loose a customer !
Bought some SSD and MicroSD from Shopping Square before, I think they mixing fake and real product and sell them.
Were you able to get refund for the fake?
Worth putting it in with a SATA adapter? Or just get a SATA SSD? Already have 970 Pro in M2 spot.
I prefer native m2 over SATA: no extra cables to run around. Adapters are totally fine but SATAs are cheaper anyway, why not just buy that?
Or even better, get a mobo with 2x m2 spots :)
Haha was actually thinking of updating the mobo first… hmm
yes i think so my bad
Difference is important because the SSD will be much slower over SATA (although I dunno if you can actually do NVME to SATA)
No difference really using a PCI-E adapter vs the M.2 slot so worthwhile.
What's the best way to clone a hdd to move it over to this SSD? Any software in particular or built in windows tools? Google gives me lots of answers but I wanted to know if there was a tried and tested method.
I have used Macrium Reflect free version to clone running OS from HDD to SSD on a few machines….worked like a charm. There are a few other software but haven't used them.
lousy store - totally untrustworthy
open a beer, sit back, waiting for 1TB for under $99
