Western Digital SN740 2TB PCIe Gen4 NVMe M.2 2230 SSD US$91.43 (~A$140.55) Delivered @ Global SSD TOP Store AliExpress


For those who missed out on this deal last week it's back again and even cheaper making it a new record low price! This M.2 2230 SSD is an excellent choice for those looking to upgrade their Steam Deck, ASUS ROG Ally, Surface Pro 9, X, Surface Laptop 3, 4, Laptop Go and more.

Since this is a Gen4 SSD you shouldn't use it with the Surface Pro 8 and Surface Pro 7+ due to stability issues. Both of these have no issues with Gen3 SSDs.

This one offers a sequential read up to 5150 MB/s, sequential write up to 4850 MB/s and uses Toshiba BiCS5 112l or SanDisk TLC flash. Unfortunately 2230 sized SSDs don't have DRAM cache, but this one uses pSLC cache and HMB to make up for it so it's perfectly fine for gaming. Especially when a lot of other similar SSDs are QLC.

  • Can anyone recommend a good external case for this? The one I have doesn't support the smaller 2230 size.

      I just bought one of these, 9.61USD with one of those $2 coupons (24AN02/AE2ZNAF).

      My experience with JEYI enclosures has been positive.

      • Thanks. First coupon worked, but second didn't.

    • there was a deal just for this

    • I put it in one of these

      It's really tiny and has a locking mechanism.

      The other one has a loop for keyrings which might be handy.

    I found that these steps resolved the stability issue for the Surface Pro 8:

    Finally, I found how to solve the problem with the trick posted by Getter Robot in the 31th december 2022:
    1. Enable "Link State Power Management" option in Power Options.
    2. Choose "Off" for "Link State Power Management".
    3. Reboot.

    • Doesn't fully work for me. If unplugged, it often never wakes from sleep, requiring long-press power buttons to force shut down and start up. Been considering switching out to a Gen3… but prices on those just seem to keep going up!

  • Rocking one of these in my Ally. Damn I paid $180. Great buy at this price.

  • how can this be converted into a portable ssd, is there an enclosure for this?

    • I just bought one of these, 9.61USD with one of those $2 coupons (24AN02/AE2ZNAF).

  • Thank you. My dad needed something and I really didn't want to pay the $2.99 for shipping and this pushed it over the $15 requirement for free shipping.

    24AN12 worked for my $152 order.

    damn for iphone users i found something sweet, 40 bucks tho

    for cheap option there is this:

    • -2

      you woudnt really use that on an iphone like permanently

      looks like a great way to ruin your hole, so to speak

      • yes you would if you knew anything about iphone 15 pro max and its log recording, practically replacing a 5000 dollar camera with that feature, it only needs big storage, hence why that product exists and has sold just from that listing 700+ units in 3 months

  • Says item no longer available :(

    • They did that in the last deal and it came back later. Hopefully the same happens.

      • It's been in my ads all week since buying.

  • What's the difference between these and a full length nvme? Would they be ok to use as an external drive?

    • +1

      These are designed for the devices in the OP that don’t support a full length one.

      I’m getting one to upgrade my surface laptop 4

    • +1

      What's the difference between these and a full length nvme?

      Physically smaller, slower due to cutting of components (no DRAM) plus lower guaranteed reliability/durability (500TBW vs 1200TB on the equivalent 2280 SN770)

      Would they be ok to use as an external drive?

      Just don't use it as a content creation scratch disk, database store or anything else that requires continuous/heavy writes

      • Thanks, so durability is about half that of a full length nvme. Guess if they were both around the same price full length would still be the way to go for an external drive then.

  • im getting "this product can't be shipped to your address.
    Select another product or address." is there a way around this?

    • It means it's out of stock, but I suggest you keel looking especially in the evening since this is the most common times I've seen it in stock.

  • Just installed mine today from the last deal!
    Cloned the old OS over, all in all it took about 1.5 hours for the transfer and swap!

    • +1

      how did you clone it ?

      • I use mini tool partition wizard 10. I've used it a fair few times now and it hasn't failed me once.


        There's some links in this dudes video description where you can download the version 10 (I had some troubles with the newer version)

        It can also help move partitions of the drive if you need to expand your OS and your recovery partition is blocking the free space.

        I'd clone it first then do the partition swapping after you've installed the cloned drive.

        • so you connect steam deck to windows pc via usb c
          and image the steam deck SSD to an image file (and save it on a drive e.g D:\ etc..)
          then using that image file you clone it back to the steam deck after changing the SSD to the bigger 2TB SSD?

      • And remember before you do anything, always backup your shit!

        • what files do you backup?

          do you just copy the game saves to a spare usb stick/hdd via the usb-c port etc?
