[eBay Plus] Samsung 4TB 870 QVO 2.5" SSD (MZ-77Q4T0BW) $399.20 Delivered @ futu_online eBay

210
PLBF20

For those with eBay Plus, this deal works out to be $399.20 which is very close to the Computer Alliance price of $399 however… given many people have access to discounted eBay gift cards such as Suncorp Benefits 3% off, this comes down to $387.22 making it one of the cheapest SATA SSD deal at $96.81/TB (unless you were able to score the [8TB version for $699[(https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/654667) recently with the $150 Steam credit!).

As per before, 870 QVO is a QLC drive which may not be suitable for all applications/uses but given it's the 4TB model, it does perform better than some of the reviews/Youtube videos online which focus on the 1TB's performance and smaller write cache (vs the larger models).

Shout out to magic8ballgag for pointing this out in the other deal; and seeing that it's eBay Plus only (and requires a tiny bit of work to get discounted gift cards), it seemed appropriate to give it it's own deal with the eBay Plus code expiring tomorrow (7/12).

Update: This should be eligible for the extended Samsung Far Cry6 promotion: https://www.samsung.com/au/offer/ssd-farcry6-2021/

    Makes me glad I picked up one of these, even though it is just sitting on my shelf collecting dust

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/611605

    It came down to ~$285 after GC

    • I got 2 of these… SSD steal of the year if you ask me.

      • MLC cells too, longer warranty and supposedly more durable and expensive to make

          Pretty sure 860 EVO is TLC

        • expensive to make

          They're usually just the exact same cells, but to store the same amount of data into 3bit cells instead of 4 bit cells requires 1/3 more of them.

          Think of the cells like a paper cup, SLC they just have cup full = 1, cup empty = 0. For 2 bit, they add 'half full' for 3 bit, they have 1/3 full and 2/3 full. For 4 bit, 1/4 full, 1/2 full, 3/4 full.

          More states per cell means you have to be more accurate setting the state and reading the state. For SLC you can basically say anything over 1/2 full = 1 and and anything less = 0 so it's really fast to read write, and as the cell degrades it's still really easy to tell the difference between 0 and 1.

          This 4TB QLC drive uses up to 78 GB of the space as an SLC cache though, so most average consumers won't notice, because most average users won't sit down and write more than that in one sitting.

      I remember that deal and regretted not going for it :(

      • Yeah I hear ya, same here.
        Gee, I am still punishing myself still for missing out on this Non QVO deal. :)

    • I regret not buying 2 more during that redemption promo….

  • Gotten the recent Lenovo Legion Pro 5. Would this be appropriate to upgrade the 1tb SSD? Am mainly using it for graphics, rendering and the occasional gaming.

    • Won't work. Laptops these days use the NVMe form factor for their SSD storage while this deal is the 2.5" SATA form factor version.

  • Only comes down to $499 for me using the PLBF20 code and I'm ebay plus member.

    It's showing up as 20% off $669 =$499.

    What am I missing?

      It’s currently 20% off so it should be $499 and then at check out use the coupon code to bring down to $399.20.

        Thank you, I thought it already had the coupon applied and was $499, I just checked out with the coupon and it did bring it down to $399 with free shipping. Thanks
