Micron is the parent company of Crucial in case anyone was wondering.

I'm not sure if you're joking, but you realise that Amazon has been riddled with fake products for years? It's a huge problem.

Nice one.
This will do the job nicely for some additional game storage space now that my M2's are filled.

It means manufactured for consumer. On the other side, there's enterprise grade ssd meaning having higher write cycle than client ones. Yes, you can google whether your laptop model supports 2.5" SSD or not. And yes you can install WIndows.

For a hard drive you may have a point as they are fragile and should be transported carefully.
For an SSD there is no such issue and it's easy to check if they have been used.
There might be an issue in getting a warranty if buying from unofficial sources but that has nothing to do with data security.
It seems like a nice drive Marvell 88SS1074 is a dram based controller
that paired with Micron 96L TLC should make a nice drive
and its 1024GB vs 1000GB on the MX500

Im slowly starting to build my first gaming PC. Was looking at this for the second harddrive in the system for games (first being a small M.2 for operating system). Does this seem ok? Read a lot of reports to wait for black friday? Anyone else doing this?

I’d go for it. Tempted to replace my secondary spinning drive in my laptop. It’s cheap and significantly faster! Why not :-)
Lovely stuff

Amazon are one of the biggest culprits from 3rd party sellers selling fake and inferior products to the original.

So no over provisioning then?
why can i only seem to get this for 89 with the code? has this expired?
NVME drives are similarly priced, at 3-4x the speed. I guess these can be useful as backup/storage?

Post up the 1TB £76 NVME drive as a deal then ? They are not "similar" they are more like £25 - £30 more.
3x/4x speed - yeah sure, if you are running synthetic benchmarks all day long you may notice it. Day to day, a lot less difference than you would think
Seller has raised the price, now a cold deal.
Will this be OK in a 2015 Mac Mini?
Seller put the price up its now £99.99 (£89.99 if code still works)

Not all SSDs come in exact terabyte sizes so they will be missing out anyway if they only get alerts for 1TB.
960GB is a fairly common size also.
robodan91818/10/2020 17:05

So no over provisioning then?



no drives are over provisioned ever its all bs that comes from dumb reviewers that have no idea what they are talking about
a 960GB drive is just a 1024GiB drive with enough good blocks for 960GB with a couple of spare blocks left over
a 1000GB drive is just a 1024GiB drive with enough good blocks for 1000GB with a couple of spare blocks left over
a 1024GB drive is just a 1024GiB drive with enough good blocks for 1024GB with a couple of spare blocks left over

I will show u 4 identical drives made by Phison in the same factory for the oem that i own
1 Is a down bin at 960GB
2 Is a non down bin at 1024GB
1 Is a non down bin at 2048GB (note how it has over 100 less bad blocks than the drive half its size at 960GB)

Model : Corsair Force MP510 960GB
Fw : ECFM12.3
Defects Total : 524

Model : Sabrent Rocket 1024GB
Fw : ECFM22.4 (OEM FWID RKT303.1)
Defects Total : 215

Model : Sabrent Rocket 1024GB
Fw : ECFM22.5 (OEM FWID RKT303.2)
Defects Total : 209

Model : Sabrent Rocket 2048GB
Fw : ECFM22.6 (OEM FWID RKT303.3)
Defects Total : 416

All the down bin does is allow them to have enough blocks to fit that size
you could never make a 960GB drive into 1024GB as it has to many failed blocks
from the factory and gets sold to the oem cheaper due to it

e.g. a 960GB Phison turnkey solution is cheaper than a 1024GB Phison turnkey solution

e.g. Crucial MX500 is the down bin nand and Micron 1300 is the non down bin nand

at the factory every drive gets checked for bad blocks on setup
and at a guess under 250 bad blocks for 1024GiB of nand it becomes 1024GB
anything over becomes 960GB

Micron have 3 bins 1024 1000 960

And just to add to this point, as much as I would try to buy from a "Sold and fulfilled by Amazon" listing on Amazon, their own inventory has had problems in the past, specifically I remember a whole batch of SanDisk or Samsung SD Cards were actually found to be fake, from Amazon's inventory..

yet they still get it wrong
what i have told you is fact

they have no idea how the underlying drive works and just spout rubbish

there are low level tools available to check what i have told you
I advise instead of doing the same as said reviewers you actually check
like i have

then come back and eat some humble pie

Mine just arrived safe and sound - so decent turnaround from the seller.
I have to say, I have bought probably 10 or more SSDs over the years and this is by far the most cheaply made shell I have seen so far. Even the cheapy China brands I own (Drevo for example) are in less of a flimsy case. The whole thing feels like it has been made from an old tin can.
Will hit it with some test data in a bit and put it through it's paces.
