Is this worth it if I already have an 850 evo?
This one is QLC based, but with SLC cache. Depends on your usage. It's really more about the tempting price for 500GB SSD despite being inferior in terms of performance.
It's okay as a secondary NVMe drive, but given 850 EVO is SATA3 based, even with m.2, you would want this to be in the primary m.2 slot going directly to cpu.
Yes this is NVME, but at this price will be sold out in minutes
It's kind of good it will be sold out quickly. I don't really need it and if I were to get it, it will most likely be collecting dust afterwards.
This is leaps and bounds better than an 850 Evo. But yes at this price you'll need some fast fingers
Not as the drive is filled and you start to feel the true speed of QLC. 850 Evo has decent TLC NAND.
I get the SLC cache via NVMe advantage, but there's a reason why this can be sold at this price.
Is that Asus laptop any good ? Also would the ram be upgradeable ?
8pm one is a decent entry level all rounder
11pm Good midrange gaming machine and great price
Sorry. The 8pm one. I’m assuming it can be upgraded as Kogan is selling a 16GB variant
And going by Asus website it can be upgraded to 16GB
500gb is kinda tight these days, games gobble up so much space…
Finish game, delete, install new game?
Bought a bigger drive.
still surviving on my 128gb ssd + 2tb hdd from 10years ago :D
i don't even connect my hdd most of the time since its so noisy
probably upgrade when 1gb ssd hits $50, which is inevitable since they are so scalable
They told me about the sale but didn't tell me the deals ahead 😓 was refreshing the page eagerly since.
put a 2TB SSD in there and I'm in
I posted this not even a week ago!
Was OOS by the time I saw it.
i'm kicking myself for missing it! :(
mee three, going by the $perMB should be $200 :)
compatible with MacBook Pro’s (2014-16)?
Check ifixit.com to see if your ssd is removable and what ssd you need, or if you can get an adapter, etc.
2013-2015 uses proprietary connector: https://d3nevzfk7ii3be.cloudfront.net/igi/xdY6x5MOAqo1oPQ3.f... - not sure if you can use an adapter but the custom ssd's with the proprietary connector are available to purchase.
2016-17 touchbar models are soldered ssd
2016-17 non touch bar is removable but custom ssd, which you can buy off ebay or other sources.
the crucial p1 works great in macbook air 2013-15 models, as we've installed the 500gb p1 into 3 airs of this series no problem - just needs adapter, easily found on ebay or amazon… at this price, the p1 can't be beat fwiw
Starts 11pm today
Shopping to Metro Melbourne for $10.20 kinda ruins the deal IMO
This is my current ssd, specifically the Sandisk X400 on my laptop.
Is it a huge upgrade besides the size? TIA.
Sandisk X400 is a SATA ssd, whereas the P1 is NVMe so I dont think it will be compatible with your laptop since the connection is different
Thank you :), fortunately I’ve checked and my laptop supports both PCLe and NVMe too. I assume this is better than the X400 if that’s the case?
Yes, it will be much faster
@celery juice: Great. Thank you kind juice :)
To be honest you wont see any difference in windows or games loading time. If you are copying large files across one nvme to another or editing large files like 4k videos, then you would see a difference. Whats your use case?
Just more storage in general - I’m mainly using it as a boot drive + to install games
Um….funny question….can I put Crucial P1 SSD M.2 into an SATA enclosure and chuck it in PS4 Pro? I know there might be some bottleneck so it wouldn't perform at M.2's best, but at this price (similar to standard SATA SSD) I don't see why not….?
This is nvme, so no. Just go for bx 500 for ps4.
Thanks for that!
Is Kingston a2000 still the best OS drive.
I do not think it ever was.
Best 'value' OS NVME Drive
Which is the best nvme ssd to use as main drive in windows laptop?
A2000 cheap and best.
I believe the 6tb drive is SMR…
MX beats a BX right?
I should wait for an MX?
If its going to be your main OS or boot drive, then yes, wait for MX.
Beauty, thanks for the advice mate.
IMO skip P1 and get Kingston a2000 instead for $25 more. why? a2000 is a proper TLC with DRAM, and can be a boot drive, a second drive or anything else you'd throw at it, while P1 is only good as a second drive, and even then I would think twice before buying P1, even at this price.
I use my P1 as a boot drive. Didn't get why you said you can't boot with it
yes, you can why not. it's just that it will noticeably slow down as you fill it up, more noticeably for writes, and there is lots of writes on a boot drive.
for a game drive where you normally write once read many times, it's fine, although it still slows down as you fill it up.
yeah, people still have spinning drives in their laptops as boot drives, so P1 isn't the worst thing used for that. but seriously, if you can have a proper TLC with DRAM for $25 more, just get that IMO
Any deals beating price of 2x 1TB BX500s drives (i.e. 2T SSD Drive) as same price of $200 when this deal starts, purely using for fast storage and prefer one drive over having two
I wish USB enclosures are cheaper for M.2, I want one for Pi
Can this (Crucial P1 SSD M.2 500GB $49) be used to upgrade my old 2012 Macbook air?
Thanks - snagged the p1
Is the P5 worth it ?
oh man why did i wait
