I found this by a Facebook targeted add. Cannot for the life of me find it using Amazons "search" engine. Truly awful website.

Decent deal.

Happy for people to post alternatives in the comments. I always find that helpful :)

  • hmm… resist and wait for black friday sales??

    • The magic 8 ball says "It is certain". Whatever that means.

    • I've spent so much time waiting for tech for my pc. Ryzen 5000, RTX 3000, My formd T1 SFF case. I hit the ole Ozbargained button on this one haha!

      • lol lucky i don't need this but i'm in the same boat as you… NR200 case instead.. here's hoping i can even buy a new cpu and gpu this year (not looking likely)

  • Good price but this is a DRAM-less SSD.

    • DRAMless NVMes can use system RAM as a DRAM buffer if they support it.
      That is the extent of what I know on the subject.

    • Do you have recommendations for an alternative within a similar price range with DRAM?

    • This actually does have DRAM. Its issue is that it uses QLC.

      For anyone looking to buy:
      In real world terms this means lower endurance compared to TLC drives, also much much slower write performance when the SLC cache is filled.
      This happens if you continuously write ~120GB to the drive while empty (not an issue for most people), or if you continuously write ~10GB when the drive is full (could be an issue).
      In these circumstances the drive slows to under 100MBps write speed, which is much worse than a TLC drive which will still do at least ~500MBps under the same circumstances.

      For most people just doing normal light computer things, its probably not gonna be an issue. However, QLC only really exists because its cheaper than TLC, so if there's a TLC alternative (eg. Kingston A2000) for not much more you might as well get that.

      This is a very comprehensive review and explanation.

  • I don't know about the P2, but the P1 1TB nvme runs like ass. You'd be better off with a HDD.

  • Budget NVMe drive - I wouldn't put my OS on this tbh

  • The PNY CS3030 2Tb is ~$25 more, delivered from the US, I'd personally go for that. https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07QM2HD7B/

    • Its still a NAND flash drive though. So I guess the argument could be made that the sx8200 is only another $25 more.

      • The Adata SX8200 Pro and PNY CS3030 are both 3D NAND?

        • Sorry yes youre right. Storage isnt something I am super well versed in.

          So a drive can have 3D NAND memory as well as a DRAM cache like the sx8200 does? Or are they one in the same?

          Sounds like I need todo alot more research in this area.
