About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Lowest ever Amazon price. This drive also sounds like it could be a good budget option for expanding the PS5 memory.

'Coming in at just under the recommended minimum benchmarks for what the hardware manufacturer advises [5500MB/s sequential reads], the drive was recognized by my [PS5] console and worked flawlessly in every game and file transfer test I threw at it.

To see what this DRAM-less SSD could do, I transferred a total of 88.89GB worth of data from my PS5's internal storage to the P3 Plus, and the results surprised me. Matrix Awakens, 25.27GB, was written onto the NVMe SSD in just 22 seconds, with Fortnite, and its larger 32.95GB file size, successfully installed in just 28 seconds; absolutely nothing wrong with the rates here.

Said games that made the transition performed as if they were installed natively on the console's internal drive with no differences being immediately apparent in the several hours I played. It should be said, should PS5 be a priority here, that you will have a better time opting for the Crucial P5 Plus (opens in new tab) instead which is tailor-made for the system. However, should you want to throw a P3 Plus into it, I can confirm that it does work well. '

    WD SN770 1TB is slightly faster and slightly cheaper... (on amazon) (edited)

    That WD is also TLC flash, so will last longer and be more reliable.

    SSD Endurance (TBW) - 220TB, do yourself a favour and avoid this drive.

    Problem with this is you’ll fill it up with games but not actually play and complete them!

    I like to think in some alternate universe, there's a version of me that actually plays games and doesn't just hoard em.

    I assume this isn't far off the Samsung 980 Pro in terms of performance? Can see that on Amazon (with heatsink) for £97.99 right now.

    980 Pro has DRAM cache so will be faster for the first gig copied or so

    Hey op. Did you buy a heatsink for it?

    I still haven't decided if I'm actually gonna buy the SSD yet (not sure if I need it), but one would be recommended. I was looking at this heatsink but it's currently OOS.

    Ofc you’ll need one with built in heatsink. Why risk it without since it’s officially recommended

    Can I use this as an external storage for backup (ie files, photo, documents)? Sorry I know nothing about nvme. (edited)

    Unfortunately NO, this plugs directly into the motherboard.

    Before the 'unhelpful votes' you could spend more on an enclosure and usb adapters to turn it into an external drive, but that seems like a lot of effort when you can just buy a thumb drive.

    Seems to be really slow according to some reviews photos

    Did anyone else received empty packaging this week? I have 2 both sealed envelopes but the box was open and just manual and screw inside?
