  • really looking for some juicy dram tlc 4tb ssd

    • yeah, am hanging out for a superb deal on a 4TB ssd be it M.2 or 2.5 Sata and missed out on those EVO 860 that sprung up just a while back but missed it due to about to fly off to Perth.

      Bring it back Ozbargain Gods, please!

  • Is 259 for a 2TB SSD a good deal?

    • I was after that as well but dam … I think it was cheaper last year but I'm not sure if it was with this store.

      • last year in March I bought 1tb A2000 for $220

        • +1

          Ouch. Got both of mine for ~$129 each, around June last year.

    • Seems its never been cheaper on Amazon, $269 currently

      • +1

        Its sometimes around $240 via amazon UK on the au site.

      • +1

        I bought from Amazon UK via Amazon AU site for $254 + cash back. I believe that's the lowest it ever gets.

    • I paid 305 last year July and went all SSD for games. But with Direct storage coming up, I wonder how older SSDs will get impacted as direct storage needs fast pcie based SSDs.

    Wasn't this cheaper at some point last year.

    Before you ask, trying to combine it with other products will result in the discount code only covering $4 of the shipping versus all of it.

    I don't know what kind of logic lead them to $4, but it will prevent you from trying to send them broke by getting free shipping on absurdly large items like cases.

    Edit: The 2TB price is probably the only vaguely okayish deal here, combined with free shipping. The rest is usually beaten by semi-regular E-Bay or Amazon deals. (And all of them are probably beaten with E-Bay Plus/Amazon Prime use/sales)

  • which one would you pick out of these 2? Can someone please explain?

    One is more portable than the other?

      The P2 is an NVMe drive with an M.2 form factor (a thin blade shape),
      The MX500 is a 2.5" SATA drive, shaped like all other 2.5" SATA drives.

      If your laptop/PC/whatever supports NVMe, this is absolutely the better option as it's faster (not to mention, reduced cable clutter as this slots directly into the motherboards as opposed to using power and sata cables).
      If you're using an older system, NVMe may not be supported, and thus your only option is to use an MX500, which is still a great drive with great speeds

      • thanks heaps, bought 1 of each:)

    • The P2 is an NVMe drive which is significantly faster than the MX500 which is a SATA drive
      However, P2 is dramless which means will slow down significantly during large writes and is less durable.
      As for portability, you need a special enclosure for NVMe drives which can easily be over $50 for a quality one but would be a bit smaller in form factor.

        thanks heaps, bought 1 of each:) 1 for me and 1 for the mrs

  • No way to get free shipping on other products?

  • Wait why is a nvme drive cheaper than a SSD one lol

    • +6

      The P2 is cheaper than the MX500 because it doesn't have a DRAM cache

      It uses a host of software tricks to get around this limitation (Host Memory Buffer)

      I'm hoping the 2TB MX500 will go lower, or at least Futu online will lower it's pricing on eBay so I can least take advantage of ebay Plus coupon…

    • The price of m.2 and SATA interface devices has been getting much closer in the last six months or so.

  • Looking to DIY a boot drive for a 2018 iMac with fusion drive. iMac has thunderbolt 3, so which NVMe drive is suitable? Also for bonus kudos, recommendations for a good enclosure please.

    what happened to RAM prices? I got that ddr4-2666 16gb stick for $85 delivered last year

    • +1

      Chip shortage.

  • Am I seeing things? Amazon has it cheaper at $195.59

    • Looks like its being delivered via USA. So its cheaper, but will take a little longer to get to you.
