Specs are really good on this one. It's one of the best SATA III ssd's.

Indeed, good drive this one, and the price is good to.
Only questionable factor is there have been nvme drives at this price recently.
Good drive. I bought one from Amazon in July for £163.99 and have been hoping to buy another since. I'm holding out for a similar price, fingers crossed for Black Friday. Voted hot.

yeah I think this is a tad much, it will come up cheaper before christmas no doubt
if you can only use sata III than this is more than fine. If you have m.2 nvme pcie 3 then go for the adata 2tb drive.
Decent price for a decent drive but, as @ProwlingBoy mentioned, it was £163.99 on Amazon earlier in the year. I picked one up for that price in August and I'm sure it'll go close to that again on BF. Unless you need it now, probably worth holding off for a couple of weeks.

Certainly, expecting this BF..
Buy now if you need it, if not wait out the potential 10%+ price increase due to NAND price adjustments this quarter. I'd the prices to drop again through Q1 '20 however, which means we could be seeing drives at £68-70 per TB.
There was a 2TB M.2 NVMe for £187 last week, I'd hold out for black friday.

This is good for those limited to SATA only.
2TB for £186 is just too expensive. SSD prices need to drop much further. I've said it for 10 years. SSD prices just don't drop quick enough. It's nearly 2020 and 2TB is still near the £200 price bracket. Might be the cheapest ever but meh not cheap enough.

SSDs are 4x more expensive on average than conventional HDDs. 2TB should be £93.50 and 1TB should be £50. Job done, give me the job I'll fix it. No reason not to do it, apart from them being businesses and making lots of £$ which they're more than entitled to do.

How can you compare an HDD and SSD just because they have the same capacity?

One of the key reasons it is more expensive than a conventional 7200rpm HDD is because of the speed you can read and write off the SSD.

A typical 7200rpm HDD delivers roughly a read/write speed of 80-160MB/s. A SATA SSD will deliver a read/write speed up to 550 MB/s.

That’s why they’re more expensive. You’re comparing them like they are the same but you’re paying for the SPEED...not just capacity.

Apples and oranges mate. Same same, but different as the phrase goes.

Now if you start talking about nvme drives...woo now that’s hella fast.

You're preaching to the converted. I was a computer tech in an independent computer shop for 7 years. Now I'm an IT manager for an electronics refurbisher. I know the technicals. The point is get these damn SSDs much cheaper and there's no reason why they can't be, well the reason is money, supply and demand.

It’s interesting you feel it’s not already cheap. I remember when 128gb drives were this price only 6-7 years back and now we’re getting 2000gb for the same price. In my mind, the price is dropping reasonably. But each to their own and all that jazz

In relative terms they're cheap, in realistic terms of what they could be they aren't.

You don't think the SATA should be cheaper than the M.2?
Does the fleabay outlet offer the same warranty?

is this ssd worth buying for a old-ish laptop with low-end specs (old gen i3 processor, 4gb ram etc)? And how does it compare with the low capacity ssd usually found on mid-tier laptops in terms of speed? In my limited experience, the manufacturers' ssds are often disappointing, not much faster in daily tasks such as opening folders compared to the traditional 5400rpm hdds

Capacity just depends on how much you need, the smaller sized ones perform the same (within the same model range)

An SSD will speed up any system if it has a traditional HDD originally, significantly faster than a 5400rpm drive

This is a very good drive and for the price offering it is considered bargain!

You are getting £93/TB which is not the cheapest you can get but with larger any drivers SSD or HDD you pay a bit of premium for the larger size.

This drive is not your cheap QLC drives the likes of Samsung, Intel just try to make quick bucks on junk.

This drive has a lot of decent features such as write cache for accelerated performance and hardware level encryption which is only really found on Pro grade drives that are around £250-300 price bracket.

I got a cheapy 1TB Kingston drive which I picked up for £70 and using it as a storage device only. it is significantly cheaper than this, but different performance levels. I wouldn’t stick that Kingston as a system drive...

You are also comparing HDD tech to SSD. The former has had over 30years of development and finesse where the latter is only 6-7yr old. Considering a 512gb 840 pro was over £200 about 5-6year and this drive wouldn’t be far off from that drives performance, it is exceptional that these can be at this price level. If these decent 2TB drives able to hit £120-150 mark it will be fair mainstream in self build pcs.
Sebastian_Gorgon16/11/2019 19:41

That’s a fairly decent bargain!

Conventional HDDs are about 69 years old in terms of tech. SSDs first arrived around 2007, 12 years ago.

Technically yes, the first HDD is the size of a garden shed. Can’t really call them the HDD we now associate with ie the 2.5inch format. It’s when PCs become available in homes that’s when the technology really got the investment and started to take off. Around 80s 90s

Similarly for SSD, early ones were commercials unviable and relied on different kind of technologies on the modern day SSD

Christ, imagine voting this hot when there was a deal the other day where there was a product at the same price, of the same capacity, but with 7x the performance of this tatty little SATA drive.

That’s assuming you have the correct interfaces for the drive. But anyone is getting 2TB drive is likely to be a new build or a build that’s fairly recent so no reason not to take advantage of the nvme format.

SATA still have its place in the world tho, it’s cheap and universally supported. I also can’t see consumer HDD moving away from the interface to cause a mass shift.

Will this fit and work in a ps4 pro?
Paid this last Year from Amazon, still in the box.
I've got 4 of these in my server. Decent drives, cant believe how much I paid for them (They're only 250GB models) in comparison to this deal!
