This one's a QLC drive, but it looks like a good price for a 1tb second steam/content drive - anything you want reasonably fast read speeds from.

Delivery to Melbourne is $10.95, but local pick up is free

  • Get one before it run out of stock again.

  • Why do people go these over nvme m2 equivalent? When sometimes they aren’t that much cheaper? Is it purely due to lack of m2 space available?/older boards don’t have m2? I’ve just built my pc and i still don’t understand

    • lack of m2 space available?/older boards don’t have m2

      Yes. The latter is why I'm in the market. I have two M.2s installed already and want to replace an older 2.5" I have.

      • Thanks all great to know, I should probably figure out my PCIE lane total on my z490 gaming edge wifi then because I’m running two m2s.

        • It's not always the lane total but how they're split. The manual will indicate which PCIe or SATA slot is unusable when the M.2 slot is occupied.

    • Might get some for NAS. I guess you could use M2 adapters.

    • M2 takes a PCI slot, thats why I'm using 2.5" drives vs M.2 as i have other devices in the PCI slots,

    • When the second M.2 slot occupies a PCIe lane that's needed elsewhere.
      When the PCIe lanes are occupied by 2 HBA cards and a 10GBE NIC, it's just easier and cheaper to cop a SATA drive instead of an NVME drive.

  • Are these good or average?

    • These arnt the best on the market vs a Pro series SSD, but much better than a spinning hdd

      Good bang for buck price, but you can get faster for more, these normally also come with less warranty vs the higher end ones
