        idk with the Chia shit on the horizon, maybe better to buy now

        • +2 votes

          Had a little read into Chia - super interesting. Although I doubt it would effect the price of SSD's because I think it is focused on the amount of storage rather than the speed so only HDD prices would go up right? Man this crypto stuff is really flying over my head…

            @rain-e: Best if if you get a few ssd raid 0 to create your chia plots then when created move to slower (capacity disk) for farm and earn rewards.

            You need about 270gb temporary space on high speed disk to create a plot to fsrm.

            @rain-e: If it affects any of them though, couldn't it potentially have knock-off effect since customers going for one product are now funneled into another product? And then if that one runs out?

            Or maybe if they use some similar component somewhere down the line

          from what I read about the Chia, this TLC/QLC should not be too attractive to the Chia farmers. As the TBW is not very good, some ssd like 860 pro can provide 3 times TBW at probably twice price, this may make 860 pro a better choice for Chia farmers.

        Nope. Scalpers will F up the storage market again

      This is not a poor drive like those deals though.

    This has a DRAM cache, the BX500 does not. (The BX500 being ~$3 cheaper currently from Shopping Square)

    Obviously would recommend the MX500, over the 3 soft-serve cones you could buy with the savings. (Hot darn, they're 80c now.)

      HJ soft serves are still a sweet 70c!

          This deal is expired… But thanks

          •  

            @ValouSydney: it's <$4 more expensive than the deal price. I pulled the trigger on this last night, I wanted the 2TB but oh well.

          •  

            @ValouSydney: Code still works - but price after cashback is $118. I went for the 870.

            •  

              @codfish: Thanks for confirming. For the price difference I would Def pick the 870 evo!

          •  

            @ValouSydney: eBay rep says PAPR15 still works today. I forgot to apply code to my order and they told me to cancel my first order, reorder with the code.

    •  

      this one is similar in terms of performance with the evo

    •  

      Where?

        Look up ⬆️

    For Windows boot drive, this or the Evo 860/870?

      870 if on sale. Look up ⬆️

      I have a Kingston A2000 500GB, a 2TB and 1TB MX500 and a 2TB 870 EVO plugged in right now. Have used all as boot drives and AAA game drives. Virtually no difference. Unless the price gap between the Samsung and the Crucial is less than 20 bucks, I'd go with whichever is cheaper.

    •  

      Better off with a 1TB NVMe SSD like the Kingston A2000 or WD SN550 but if you don't have an NVMe slot, performance will be about the same for those SATA SSDs so get whichever is cheaper

    Thanks OP.. Great deal

    buy now before ssds become triple the price because of the new crypto

      Lol I just bought cos I needed. Imagine that :)

      Good. They won't need their gfx cards any more.

      • +1 vote

        Think they can run both gfx and storage type on one single rig…… only need one set of motherboard, case, CPU and ram….

        • +1 vote

          So motherboard mining next? Maybe PSUcoin so then you have a rig dedicated to all the coins per component?

    I am super super new to computers but some users above recommended the Samsung 870 EVO 1TB ($143) over this.
    I'm planning on buying either one of the DELL pre builds or tech fast ones. Would I be able to easily switch the HDD over if I buy MX500 or 870 EVO?

    • +2 votes

      For normal users (office work, gaming, web browsing) you won't notice the difference.

      If you mean switching, as in replicating OS and data from you HDD to SSD, I'd recommend using image cloning tool (e.g. clonezilla on USB stick) and an external drive.

      •  

        Yeah I'd be just gaming + web browsing. Thanks for the help.

        In terms of switching I meant that instead of paying $99 to upgrade the SSD on the tech fast builds, would I be able to have 2 SSDs. Techfast lets you upgrade and get an additional 1TB SSD for $119. I am assuming they won't be using MX500 or 870 EVO quality, so would I be able to just buy the PC and put in the SSD myself or does this require some specialised tools and knowledge?

        PS: the case for the PC is MSI MAG Forge 100R [ATX] Case
