    Just wondering how much of a difference if any, this compare to WD 750?

    • +7 votes

      980 pro's speed is literally double to that of WD750. It's only noticeable if you do photo, video editing and a lot of file transferring.
      For gaming and PC boot time : probably zero difference

      •  

        I have an older 970… Boot time .. a blink of an eye

      I have both of these SSD's in 1TB flavours, the speed difference in realworld although small is still noticable.

    Ebay is excluded from cashback?

    • +2 votes

      You'll most likely receive/can request an invoice from Computer Alliance to claim the cashback from Samsung.

      •  

        you have to ask for it.

        I bought a Tomahawk from them and did not receive an invoice. When I asked for one, they told me to contact the store. It's kind of ridiculous.

        •  

          All my CA eBay Orders, appeared under 'Orders' on the Computer Alliance's website.

          All the serials numbers are logged too.

          •  

            @RichardL: weird. Did you just use the email address as your login? What would be the password?

            I don't have an account with them.

            • +2 votes

              @lostn: If I recalled correctly, I think an account was set-up under the same email address as my eBay order and had to use the 'forget password' feature to set up a new password to access the account.

              •  

                @RichardL: I attempted that just now, and it didn't recognize my email address.

          I've ordered about 10 packages from CA in the last two years and recieved a hard copy invoice in the box of all of them without request.

      Samsung cashback not Cashrewards / Shopback cashback.

      •  

        If you read the Samsung pdf with the t&c, they specifically state ebay is excluded.

        However I think it's a clarification that was poorly written. Probably intended to exclude random sellers? But who knows..

        •  

          Good point, didn't read the t&c in full. Basically, those eligible retailers will (need to) be providing a copy of their standard invoice (with their usual letterhead). That way, Samsung cannot tell it is an eBay purchase.

          Basically, feeBay invoice will be rejected. Most, if not all of eligible retailers should have no issue to issue a proper tax invoice.

    Price jacked?

      Nope, 12% off with Afterpay coupon code.

      •  

        Yeah sorry just saw that. Thanks

  •  

    yeah a kingston a2000 or wd sn550 is better value if its for everyday use. The speeds on these things is getting crazy but real world use I would save my pennies and get either of the other two mentioned in that order.

      A large portion of people interested in this would be PS5 owners (assuming Sony will be enabling the m.2/NVMe slot soon and 980 Pro will be on the approved NVMe SSD list - neither has been confirmed yet).

      •  

        ah ok gotcha.

  • +3 votes

    Surely this'll be fast enough for the PS5…

    • +1 vote

      Sony, please…. enable the m.2/NVMe slot in the next firmware update and release the list of supported NVMe SSDs.

    • +1 vote

      You know how much Sony loves proprietary memory…

      They won't make it cheap!

      •  

        Sony aren't doing proprietary memory expansion with the PS5. They're going to just have a list of compatible drives on their website based on what manufacturers have available. The speeds on this drive are similar to the required spec they detailed late last year.

      •  

        Sony are a bunch of crooks but thats kinda the one spot where they outdo M$, PlayStation 3 onwards have all had user replaceable HDDs and allow you to BYO drive.

        Compared to Xbox, you have to break open the console to get to the HDD, and even then, it wont work.

        PS5, again, just letting you use off the shelf parts as long as they are up to spec. Compare that to this cuckamanie bs.

        It sticks out the back of the console so you could maybe break it. And in a few years time, if you wanna get a 2TB option or something your old one is useless. But if you decide to upgrade the PS5 one you can go and put the old one in a laptop or something.

      If anything will be, it's this.

  •  

    Its a very good one to have. However there is no use of it at this point. This ssd is well ahead of its time. There is a video on youtube with load times for gen2 Vs Gen3 vs gen4. Check it out. Do you want to spend that much money on something which will be handy in future (no one knows when)? not me :)

      Mate, maybe you weren't alive when I was spending $650 per 750gb hdd…

      This is balls cheap.

      •  

        Started on computers with no internal storage, had to use floppies, you should have seen what storage and RAM prices were.

        •  

          Geez…when I started they already had 1 gig hdds… Not that they were cheap! Lol

    •  

      All about the random iops

  •  

    Excellent price for 980 pro

  •  

    I wonder when they will have the 2TB for sale?

    •  

      Why ? 2 if these in raid

      • +1 vote

        Because usually the larger capacity drives have better endurance and sustained write speed.

    Hi All,

    Just a question regarding Afterpay.

    Do they automatically charge the card you elected over the 4 repayments?

    I don't have to manually go in and pay each time right?

    Thanks in advance :)

    • +3 votes

      Yes they’ll automatically take it out when due. So as long as you have funds in your account to pay it, you can set and forget. They usually email me a couple of days before each payment to let me know, so if there weren’t funds in your account you can transfer over in time.

      •  

        Thanks

    •  

      I believe you can also pay it off as a lump sum right after you do the transaction, if you're worried like I am about closing balance fees

    •  

      Just use eBay gift cards and avoid after pay. It’ll save you an extra 5% too.

      I believe 980 Pro is currently the fastest drive in the market for PCIE Gen 4.

        No, that goes to WD SN850

      •  

        Asus had a x4 one too that used to be.

  •  

    My mate set up a 5900x system for a client with one of these in it. They're finding that files take forever to come up in windows explorer. Has anyone had a similar experience?

    •  

      Prob due to an attached network device brah

      •  

        I'll suggest it to him.

      There’s also a proprietary Samsung Driver that you need to install that makes a huge difference.

  •  

    Is the Samsung cashback a voucher or do they send it to a bank account?

    •  

      Bank account, but as mentioned in t&c, you need to allow up to 60 days once your cashback claim is approved. From past experience, Samsung cashback department do take close to the maximum number of days allowed.

  •  

    Anybody having trouble redeeming the cashback from Samsung when buying this from Computer Alliance?
