This SSD is Gen3 which might turn off a few people. but if you really want the space, this is the biggest NVMe SSD you can get
PCIe x4 ≠ PCIe Gen4
My bad, still a fair bit cheaper
$1899 for 8TB QLC..why?
Mobile users are one market. Macbook Pros have the 8tb upgrade for $3300 to put it into perspective.
That’s a lot to homework you have stored there…
Some people prefer to save their homework for future viewing instead of streaming it
For all the extra-curricular activities
Corsair tax, big nope
no RGB either
8tb wow. lol yeah I have a spare 4k why not buy 2. lol.
$1899 / 8 = $237.5 around per TB, I can get a decent quality TLC SSD or 2280 M.2+ external SSD portable…
Or even data centre grade ssd
all that money and its only a gen 3 not even a gen 4 so you not getting 7000mbps.
Honestly, my OS is no less laggy with a 5000mb/s nvme than it was with an ssd. Fresh windows install too.
lol if your using windows then you should put it on a sata ssd because there is no point puting it on a m.2 ssd you get not benefit with windows. Mac OS or Linux how ever its amazingly far on m.2 drives.
No point running nix or macos for me. I just want to game.
It did, however, free up a sata port at least. I had needed one more.
Spend $1899 save $70… bargain
Amazon is $2,169, so it's much cheaper than most other places
You do realise this is ozbargain? Maybe try ozsplurge.
Yesterday we had a poo deal (literary) posted, today we have a very expensive high-end SSD deal. I feel like there are more and more OzB joke deals now a day.
Thanks OP, bought 3
But.. It's an mp400
I am just happy to see that it is possible to be moving away from the 1TB C drives that the majority have got.
Cannot afford this today, but will eventually.
Can you run it in raid
Raid 5 in my Nas that is.
There are 15tb for sell..
If this were a PCIe 4.0 drive I'd say this is alright but for PCIe 3.0 this isn't really good. An 8TB 870 QVO is more than half the price of this. I don't think NVMe speeds are worth paying double $900 for.
Sometimes the form factor is the selling point, like if you want this in a laptop
When you're spending this much, you could probably get this paltry a discount just by asking.
Honest question…. who would spent $2k for 8TB of storage?
I mean I get it, some people have too much money to burn… but for peasants like me?
I could justify it as a business expense for my work laptop, but wouldn't spend my own money on it
