Good price on this Samsung 860 EVO SSD. Ends Sunday 11pm @ Centre Com.
Samsung 860 EVO 500GB 2.5" SATA III SSD $84 C&C @ Umart Ends Monday.
I bought this last year July for $118 - $19 promotion = $99 because I thought they would've been OOS forever after that promotion lol. Big RIP
Note: Both card and PayPal have a $1.01 fee. Bank Transfer is an option with no fee. Zip also available.
Same price at Umart if you can do click and collect.
Add $5 more and you get the 870 model.
Woa 300tbw vs 2400tbw
Worth the extra 5$
Edit: misleading, 2400tbw is online for the 4gb model
for someone clueless, is it much of a difference?
If you write 100gb a day, a 300tbw drive should last you 8 years on average.
any deals on the 1tb sata ssds ?
Computer Alliance @ eBay is $84.55 Delivered if you have eBay Plus. Use cashback and 3% off gift cards to bring it below $82.
Silly question, but is this okay to use for a boot drive?
SSDs for a boot drive is the way to go 👍
Cheers. I read that some aren't suitable (D-ram or something)
Samsung 860 EVOs use DRAM. What Are DRAM-less SSDs?
@Twix: Good old Linus. Exact video I was referring to. Thanks
I think we are going to see a lot of deals on the old Samsung 860 model as a large amount of stock of the new Samsung 870 has arrived at really good prices.
I'm planning on putting the 870 into an old laptop, from what I can tell I need a spacer or shim due to see being 7mm and the laptop drive bay is 9mm.
The crucial MX series SSD comes with a spacer, Iooks like Samsung 870 doesn't.
Anyone purchased an 870 and got a spacer in the box?
Can you crack these open and install internally via sata? Any help much appreciated
I'm a fkn idiot.
Can I please ask, is this compatible with a XPS 13 9350 laptop purchased from 2015? Or is there an alternative recommendation for this laptop?
Nah a 2.5" SSD won't fit. For the Dell XPS 13 9350 Late 2015 edition purchase a M.2 NVMe 2280 PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 SSD. Crucial P2, Crucial P5, Kingston A2000 or Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe SSD 👍
Many thanks Twix for your help, much appreciated :)
Currently $85 free shipping with $17 cashback from Samsung making it $68. Bargain!
