Seems like a good price, even better with cashback. Enjoy!
1TB Samsung 2.5" 870 QVO SATA Internal SSD - $16 cashback
2TB Samsung 2.5" 870 QVO SATA Internal SSD - $26 cashback
Original Coupon Deal
Damn ! Just bought one yesterday from Computer Alliance.. Paid $9 more than this deal. Can I cancel that eBay order?
I'd say message them. They're usually pretty chill when asking for a refund on price difference.
Sure - Thanks
The 1TB Evo 860 was a similar price after cashback which would be the better choice. Might not have any stock though
may i ask why the 860 be a better choice than the 870
EVO has the better quality TLC rather than QVO's QLC. In short better speeds and endurance for the drive
Thanks for the information FireRunner. I assumed the 870 would be better because of it's higher number. Sneaky version numbering!
i meant like say between the 860 evo and 870 evo is there a difference i thought the 870 was meant to have a very slight improvment in performance
@BargainWizard: 870 EVO is better than 860 EVO because it's a newer version with a slight performance improvement.
But QVO is QLC, so even though it's "newer," it is still more budget oriented compared to the EVO.
It's like comparing an i7-6700k with an i5-7600k.
Do you have a link? I need a need harddrive.
i got 2 1tb evo recently for around $100 1 was around 6 weeks ago from computer alliance $99 using coupon and after cashback 1 was around 3 weeks ago from futu for $112 using coupon and after cashback they have both now increased the regular prices computer allinace from $149 to $169 and futu from $160 to a whopping $209
So is inflation happening?
Combine with this? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/616697
Maybe not: Any purchases made with the use of Coupon / Voucher Codes are not eligible for Cashback (unless otherwise stated)
i bought 3 samsung ssds recently 2 1tb 860s evos and a 2tb 870 evo 1 got from from computer alliance and 2 from futu all with coupons and got cashback approved and so far i got payed out on one of them they dont show coupon discounts on the reciept only the full price
You're referring to the Samsung SSD cashback promo. Whereas the others are taking about Shopback.
@ssamjang: oh i see well thanks for clearing that up
Has anyone got cash back from Samsung yet?
i got payed out $32 a couple of days ago for a 1tb 860 evo i bought around 6 weeks ago
6 weeks, Samsung is slow. I bought mine 4 week ago, so another 2 weeks wait.
6 weeks is quick - my last three took 3 months !!
Still waiting on my cashback from the 4tb deal :(
Whats the difference between EVO and QVO?
Quicker to google
See the link from @shonky
My understanding: if you just want bulk storage for relatively fast reads with infrequent writes (e.g. a drive for steam/origin/etc) then the QVO drives are ok. For anything you'll be doing more writes (e.g. video editing) then you want a EVO or a PRO drive for both durability and speed.
I've been using a Crucial P1 (QLC) drive for almost 2 years for the frequent-read/seldom-write use case and its been fine.
Original deal does not need eBay Plus. Is Plus really needed?
You're right, I didn't notice that. Thanks for pointing it out, updated the title.
Nice deal thanks 👌
Futu are not listed on the Samsung SSD cashback website - do they invoice under a different name that is listed?
They fall under 'K.S. COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY' on their invoices.
A few weeks ago you get get 860 Evo's for this price which are a better drive.
if you have ebay plus you can get a 2tb evo from futu with 15% off voucher PAPR15 for $234.15 after cashback $271.15 with voucher + $36 cashback = $234.15 i got one last week but the voucher back then was only for 10% i forgot to look into my crystal ball
Excuse my stupid question : what is this 2.5" for ?
google is your frienemy
The most obvious difference between 3.5 vs 2.5 HDD is the hard drive size. The 2.5 inch HDD is normally around 3 inches wide, whereas the 3.5 inch HDD is around 4 inches wide in diameter. On the whole, the 2.5 inch HDDs are smaller in length, width and height than the 3.5-inch HDDs
In other words, 2.5" goes in laptop and 3.5" does not ;)
thanks OP got 1tb one.
Can anyone recommend free clone software to clone my os disk from current rubbish allied ssd to this? thanks!
Samsung Magician is free and has worked fine in my experience:
Edit: Actually looks like you want "Samsung Data Migration" from the same link
Wish there was a 4TB EVO deal again as missed the last one by a smidgen :(
Yes, I did not have afterpay account. That was a good bargain.
