[Pre Order] 2TB Seagate FireCuda 530 M.2 PCIe Gen4 SSD $563.09 + $7.74 Delivery (Free with Prime) @ Amazon UK via AU

460

All time low for the all time fastest consumer SSD available. This is the best 2TB PS5 SSD option available, but will require an additional heatsink.

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/seagate-firecuda-530-m2...

There are some slight catches: Won't ship until Oct 30. Has to come from the UK.

If you are impatient then the cheapest local price I could find (excluding Megabuy) was around $620 shipped.

Prices seem to have dropped in the last day or two and if you can find it cheaper feel free to let us know.

To be clear, this is a very fast SSD at a high price and it is not for everyone by any means. If you personally happen to prefer not so fast SSDs at not so high prices then that is fine, I could well agree with you but nobody really cares. Some people will still be interested to hear that the best is finally available at an all time low(ish) price and this deal is aimed at them, not you. Please don't get offended or feel obligated to point out that there are cheaper options available. We know.

Edited to reflect new $20 lower pricing and Oct 30 delivery date.

    Sad state of Ozb for someone to have to point this out.

      Say that in the comments and you'll be downvoted to shit. A lot of really really stupid people lacking common sense have come here in recent times.

      Or perhaps they've always been here and lockdown is bringing them out? Like all the secret doctors we've had hiding away?

    Expensive but it is pretty great to copy video at a sustained 1GB/s.

    • -7

      You guys are too rich. Putting videos on SSDs. $583.97 to store videos… I'd rather go streaming services.

      • +7

        Videos aren't just movies

          4k porn? 😆

        • +1

          Copy videos to a 2TB PCIe gen 4 NVMe SSD in the new norm? Creating new videos I can understand. Normally, you would be copying finished videos from this SSD to a larger, but cheaper though slower storage.

    overkill for ps5?

    • +31

      I think I would rather buy another PS5 for ~$165 more.

      • If you can find one… Black Friday sales and Chrissy coming up…

      • -2

        Good point. I get a second PS5.
        When PS6 comes out, i can sell both PS5 and get more money back than selling 1 PS5 + storage

    • +2

      This is the only Firecuda rated to run on the PS5, but there are more affordable drives that work just as well for PS5 such as the Samsung 980 Pro, WD SN850, Gigabyte 7000s. Some need you to add a heatsink.

      I ended up getting a Samsung 980 Pro 2TB last month for $432 during an Ebay sale. That came with a $70 Steam Wallet code which I sold for $55. This one needed a heatsink which was another $11. All up I spent $388.

      There are much better deals for a 2TB PS5 compatible drive.

  • I will have to wait for a long time i guess to see 2TB under 200$…. :(

  • Shiz i paid like $380 for my 1tb with heatsink

  • Gen5 will be out very soon hence the start of the price drops

    • +2

      This is not really a proper price drop. It is more PS5 owners looking for SSD deals.

    • +1

      And gen6 standard is in the finalizing stage.

    • +4

      PCIe 5 SSDs will not be out very soon.

      PCIe 5 SSDs may be released for servers in mid 2022 and they will cost a fortune.

      PCIe 5 SSDs for consumers are further away and will cost a smaller fortune.

  • +2

    If you're gonna buy the best of the best might as well spring for the 4TB model /s

    • I can see games getting bigger and bigger to take full advantage of the PS5's improvements. It makes sense to me to spring for a larger, faster card now than having to buy more later. Maybe I can transfer that card into a PS5 pro when it comes out, as well. I dunno, I'm a noob

  • Does anyone know what happened to Firecuda Hybrid HDD? Seems to be disappeared from the market. I got one in 2017.

    • +1

      SSHD. SSDs are so much more affordable and offer much bigger gains.

  • for that specific drive that still seems a bit too high for a 530 if it came with a heat sink then yeah it would be a good price.

    • A heatsink that'll cost you like $5 or less.

      • -1

        in other words if it doesn't come with a heat sink the 530 I would expect a price under 500 before I consider it a bargin for 2tb.

  • Do I need a very fast heatsink too?

  • +2

    This isn't really a good purchase for anyone unless the drive is needed absolutely now, considering Alder lake and Gen 5 is only a month, if not less away.

    It's not really the best option for PS5 users either, as there'll be no appreciable difference between this and something like the PNY 3040 for almost half the price that was on sale a month ago. All in all no real reason to pick one of these up

    • +1

      Yes it is the best option for PS5 users. That's why it is expensive.

      This deal is not for people who want the best value. It is for people who want the best performance, and are prepared pay extra for it.

      I agree that anybody looking to save a few bucks and with a time machine handy should go back and buy some of those $300 2TB SSDs, they were great value.

      'Please don't get offended or feel obligated to point out that there are cheaper options available. We know.'

      PCIe 5 SSDs for consumers are probably a year away.

      • I'm simply pointing out that this doesn't have a place in the market at the moment, while it is the 'best performing' in terms of numbers, they'll be no difference in performance for a PS5 user. I'm not pointing out that there's cheaper options, just that no one should buy this, even if they are looking for the best performance

        Anyone looking for the fastest drive at this point will simply be waiting for Alder Lake and 5.0 SSD's. No one is going to dish out almost $600 for an SSD they're going to replace in a few months time

        • Alder Lake is not bringing PCIe 5 SSDs. Consumer PCIe 5 SSDs are about a year away.

    • +2

      People are using these in their PS5s mate..

    • +2

      I'd hope your not spending $100 on a 500mb SSD… or buying a 10GB HDD
