Seagate FireCuda 520 500GB is included in Shopping Express Epic Hour (10PM-11PM tonight).
Considering some 1TB drives have been close to this recently, I dunno if this is really a great deal. I suppose if you're after a small gen4 boot drive, this is pretty cheap.
Edit: see here https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/665969
To be fair though, the firecuda is reporting 2.5x faster read speeds (5000 vs 2000 in your example) and 1.47x faster write speeds (2500 vs 1700 in your example). So it depends if speed is consideration for people..
QLC 1TB for $115? There are already 1TB TLC 1TB for $99 listed (also from Shopping Express). There were 2 initially, but 1 has sold out.
Crucial P1 needs to be $99 or below before it is worth considering.
yeh agreed, I did a quick search but have seen them dip under the $100 mark.
For the majority of users, I think a 1TB "slower" drive would be better than a smaller "faster" drive.
I doubt anybody can tell the difference between gen3 drives and even the fastest gen4 drives. But granted, this does have a use case.
I'm still miffed to have missed the $99 Kioxia Toshiba drive! The NV1 looks like a much poorer option by comparison, with its shorter warranty and no DRAM cache.
How does this compare to the Gigabyte Aorus Gen4 for another $5? If they're comparable, I would think the Gigabyte is a better deal given the inclusion of the copper heat spreader.
Hey it from centrecom with free delivery and cheaper.
PS5 compatible? Or does it need a heat sink?
Gen 4, so yes, compatible. Not sure if reaches recommended speed, but slower drives have worked. Don't think it comes with a heatsink, so you need to get one.
500GB is not enough for PS5… If it is sufficient for you, then:
Does anyone know how long Shopping Express takes to reply to emails?
Is it compatible with Acer Nitro AN515-55 (https://www.harveynorman.com.au/acer-nitro-5-15-6-inch-i5-10...)?
Or Pcie gen 3 is enough?
It will work, I haven't checked SSD size restrictions.
