    550mb/s is crazy slow these days.

    • +6

      Not lightning fast but not expensive either.

    • +3

      Fast for a SATA SSD.

    • +3

      It's relatively slow compared the NVMe but it's very useable. If you're breathing new life into an old laptop or PC or even building a very budget PC, this is great value.

    Thanks OP. I was looking for a cheap SSD to put in an old PC I'm selling and this will do the job nicely.

  • I do see the patriot burst 240gb model go on special for around this price, $18-24

    I usually get a 10 pack for around $200


    I assume that the lexar is a similar performer

      Probably bottom of the barrel in terms of reliability and stuff, but anecdotally those ssds have been great for replacing HDD boot drives in old PCs.

        I use them in RAID1 for my opnsense firewalls, haven't had one fail yet

    The $10 WD Green 240GB I bought from Centrecom months ago is still collecting dust. Must resist getting another toy that's going to collect dust.

    • Nothing will satisfy our thirst for NAND.

      • I really want to understand why we do this and feel this way. I have so many mid to high end m.2’s just laying around. Or using it to back up the back ups…

        What compels us to do this? Just a cheap toy that’s electronic?

        • +4

          FOMO from my personal experience. At least you only FOMO on high end m.2 SSDs, I even FOMO on low end SSDs. Sure, it is $10, but if it is still sealed and collecting dust, it is still $10 wasted. Haven't opened it, but I reckon that one is likely a QLC SSD.

          The only good thing / excuse I can think of is since I got one for $10, I now have a reason to stop buying more supposedly cheap 240 or 256GB SSDs.

      Get another one and you can RAID1 them - Redundant Array of Inexpensive Dust

      • Can I do m.2 and sata drive as raid? And would the raid with sata slow the m.2s performance?

        • +1

          Yes, and array will limited by the SATA speed though - as you thought

          • @bdl: Pretty sure WD Green is a SATA m.2. not NVMe anyway

  • +1

    Might be good to buy 4 and make a RAID10 for cache pool or important data.
    RAID10 gives you 4x read and 2x write speed gain, at least 1-drive failure fault tolerance

  • Is the deal over? The SSD is now $47 from Amazon US and $60 from Amazon UK.

    $29 but less with codes or ebay plus.

    • That's in refurbished condition, so is not brand new, and only 3 months warranty.

      • -1

        of course, but I don't think anyone cares at this price point.

        • +1

          Well i do. I generally don't buy refurbished storage drives at any price point.

          • @hollykryten: If they still work, what's the issue? Less warranty period? No warranty period?
