[eBay Plus] Samsung 980 PRO 1TB PCIe 4.0 7000MB/s NVMe M.2 TLC SSD $352.75 Delivered @ Futu Online eBay


Original Coupon Deal
A reminder: Futu Online = KS Computer = Shopping Express, no cash back available for this
PCIe 4.0 SSD is coming alone, while we don't think it has reached its best price yet as they are pretty much new tech products
This one is for those who want to try new things or need them for urgent use such as video editing and working. In fact 200% the speed and 170% the price than its old model (970 evo plus) seems a little bit worthy. However most of us might not need 7000m/s.
980 PRO is the fastest PCIE 4.0 SSD so far and might be one of the fastest PCIE 4.0 in a long term (that's what samsung usually promised). So it is not that bad compared with other PCIE 4.0 SSDs such as Sabrent 1TB Rocket NVMe 4.0 at $339
Please be aware that 980 PRO is TLC while older model like 970 PRO and 860 PRO are MLC which has more stability than tlc

    $349 at Umart…

    I guess $3.75 for delivery is ok..

    Wondering if they'll do a MLC that's actual MLC not TLC in disgused marketing terms in a Pro Evo or something..

  • Both Umart and PLE are selling at $349 while they all charge shipping and are out of stock this time

  • I would buy this if black friday wasnt so close…

    • Same. Even though black friday has done me wrong before, I feel like this will get a decent discount for black Friday.

    It’s hard to justify paying that much for 7GB/s unless one has a use case. Which none of us will have.

    • Likely an option for PS5 storage expansion.

      • From what I've heard, only particular external drives will function with the PS5? (Note: I don't exactly know how the external storage works - PS5 will be my first console)

        • This drive, technically, on paper, appears to pass the requirement (all that is unofficial by the way). However, in order to reach 7GB/s sequential read, it needs QD16 on PC (well, good luck for most people to achieve that in general use).

          Anyway, there is no confirmed list of NVMe SSDs for PS5 yet so it is unsafe to pre-purchase this for PS5. External NVMe SSD for PS5 needs to have higher specs than the internal PS5 SSD because the internal one is custom made to support 6 six priority levels, whereas NVMe SSD specs only have 2 priority levels (so PS5 will need to translate that).

          I am still cynical about PS5's ability to really take advantage of sequential read for games. With the early hands on for Series X so far showing only backward compatibility games, we are not seeing anything on DirectStorage yet. Also, if Microsoft really cares about storage, why cheap out on PCIe Gen 4 x2 (instead of PCIe Gen 4 x4).

      • I wouldn't get it until Sony confirm it's officially supported.

      • Wouldn't you need a 2tb at least or you would just be replacing like for like?

  • This is an awesome sounding bit of kit.
    Reality check though for anyone wondering, these do almost nothing for game load times and similar.

    There are really only a handful of cases where these speeds make a perceptible difference to the user.

    As for it being TLC i think it's just evolution, same as SLC giving way to MLC.
    QLC being a thing now i guess the durability, reliability and speed of TLC is has probably improved, only my guess.

    Damn this thing is fast.

  • 7GB/s? interesting marketing. I thought this drive (or any for that matter), struggled to break 4GB/s in reviews


    • In that review the 980 pro READ speeds got pretty close to 7GB/s sequential at QD16 and QD32…

      • Ah thanks, took me a while to find where on that bloody graph, I skimmed over every benchmark image and couldn't see it presented neatly

  • 1tb at $350 is a deal because its quick… ok then

  • No longer MLC so the reason for getting the Pro variant is questionable. If you really need PCIE4, then get it as it's not that much more than the current pcie4 drives. However, you'd be better off waiting for the E18 drives to come into market.

    • i no idea what u said :/

      • Basically mlc/tlc refers to the type of flash storage in an ssd

        MLC - Multi level cell - Less dense but more durable
        TLC - Tri level cell - more dense but less durable

        The samsung pro series had one big advantage (if you needed it) by being one of the few consumer drives that had MLC flash storage.

        PCIE4 refers to the amount of bandwidth it has (basically how fast it could be)(PCIE4 = 2X bandwidth of PCIE3). Again most people won't need it.

        The phison E18 is anupcoming ssd controller that many companies that arent Samsung will use. It's the first real PCIE4 controller that will be available for different companies to use. Basically, you wont pay the Samsung tax.
