I've heard of Innodisk in the past but I've never used any of their products. This might be a great deal, or it might be an icicle forming deal. I really have no idea, but I think it's pretty cheap for a brand new 2Tb SSD with 3Yr warranty and >3,000,000 hours MTBF.

Just checked one of the sellers pictures showing the serial number. Warranty is legit on the Innodisk website...

Who wants to try?
If genuine, this is an absolute steal (and the bargain of the decade)
Edited by: "tinca" 6th Jan
If you do a simple search, one can get it from £118.99: ebay.co.uk/sch…=15

Are these fake by any chance?
I definitely agree this is too good to be true but I wonder how much is the 3yrs warranty worth?

I would be using ssd for games and not critical data or system installs so don’t really care if it fails within 3 years- get replacement and reinstall all games as my saves are stored on cloud anyway...
Even if it fails outside warranty period, for that amount of money, I have still saved £100 compared to other named brand anyway...
Interesting... will try to do more research.

I was tempted by this the other day, but it all seems odd. A few random sellers suddenly have loads of these for a silly cheap price...Are they stolen or something? Or maybe fakes?

A ton of Intel DC drives popped up on eBay USA last month. Super cheap nvme 2.5 drives. Apparently totally legit, Facebook selling off their old used drives.

So this could be something similar. Good price, at least. Don't like the idea of buying an SSD from some random eBay seller though.
Had to read this several times before I saw SSD. Really thought someone had posted thinking 130 quid was a bargain for 2TB mechanical drive based on the quick glance at the picture. Really looks like a 3.5" drive!
interesting
datasheet at the bottom:
innodisk.com/en/…6-P

doesn't mention TBW but this one says:
5327 TBW

The warranty is probably a but dubious, it could be liquidation stock or similar
These drives are actually pretty good, even for a home user. At this price it must be stock that has been ordered and then dumped as Innodisk tend to build to order.

I've used quite lot of these wide temperature drives in industrial systems, and more rugged systems that are often subject to harsh environmental changes, and they are great. The bonus being that for the most part Innodisk offer a locked BOM, so you know what you are buying every time. At this price they are a bargain for the application they are meant, but most won't be able to buy them due to chain of supply audit issues.

EDIT: Here's is the specification and technical data from Innodisk - LINK!

Ya, Facebook data centre refreshing their drives. 4TB NVMe drives for around $300. Bargain basement.
Have been using Innodisk DDR2 (yes!) RAM in an embedded machine for a couple of years. It works fine. AFAIK Innodisk are a legit company supplying industrial stuff - bought mine from LinITX. Had no idea they also do large capacity industrial drives. I'd guess these are legit. ebay seller says Brand New ...
Will these definitely work Windows 10 driver wise? I would assume so, but not 100% sure!

Could you elaborate? Are you saying these are no good for a typical home user?

No, I'm saying they'll be just fine, but not as fast as a high spec Samsung drive etc. If you are happy with SATA speeds, and are going to use this as a storage drive then you can't really go wrong at £65 per TB.

He's saying you won't be able to physically buy them normally I think and that most businesses won't let you buy a disk off a random eBay seller as you want to audit the source. So for a home user absolutely fine as you are your boss.

As opposed to nvme speeds that are basically pointless outwith synthetic benchmarks for the average punter?

I have a 970 pro evo nvme and a few bog standard ssds as game/storage drives. Yes I can run a benchmark and the Samsung is fast but it makes little real world difference unless you are taxing them a lot. At this price who cares. Standard data ssd is more than good enough.
Went ahead and ordered was looking to only get a 1tb ssd but i think this is 2 good 2 pass. Paid with paypal and credit to cover myself
Gone and did it, don't need it but can't argue at this price. Hopefully I haven't made mistake and bought an empty box.
Only if i had cash to play around with. Would have bought this for the sake of it being cheap.

The full force of HUKD has not effected you then
Will the warranty on these actually be valid though? I know someone did a check on the serial number, but as these are OEM drives for businesses do we think it is likely they will just tell you to jog on as you are a home user who bought it off some random bloke on ebay?!
any clue how this would compare to something like a evo ?
Been waiting for 1Tb Samsung EVO's to come below £100 again but at £61.50/Tb this is cheaper than the sold out DRAM-less 960Gb Integral P Series deal.
geeks-and-beats-ltd were 4 quid more than the cheapest seller but with 100% rating and decent feedback it shouldn't just be an empty box - don't need it for an OS, only storage so here's hoping I won't need the warranty!

As an enterprise grade piece of kit it'll put reliability over performance but as other posters have mentioned, unless you're moving massive amounts of data about you're unlikely to notice any real world difference.

SATA III is an industry standard so it'll use the same connector and commands as any SATA III drive.

If you mean Windows operating system drivers - the hard drive doesn't care what data you put on it!
I'm pretty clueless in this area, so a bit of advise would be welcome.

Would this drive fit inside, and more to the point be compatible with this enclosure. I want this to store RAW photos and catalogues from Lightroom/Capture One and connect it to a MacBook Pro when required.

It's this bit that is meaningless to me

Yeah, that would work fine, but are these files important, of worth? If so then 2 of these would be better. You'd save a bit of money, but more importantly you'd have your files backed up twice, you could use one as a master store and the other as workspace. But don't have them in the same drawer etc.
Sadly seems to have gone up to £139.99 now

Another copy is going to be saved to a drive plugged into router (it's what I already do + a copy on my local SSD drive). However accessing files from that drive is tediously slow and my Mackbook only has 125gb spare on local drive

One day I'll buy a NAS drive . I could use Airport time capsule that I own but I use that purely to back up various Macs around the home.

Price? Performance? Which evo? A 950 is a bit different to a 970 pro.

That was my thoughts too. If the manufacturer only deal with volume customers what are they going to say when end users ask for warranty service? hmm
I bought 3. Hopefully they are worth it. I'm replacing my last mechanical drive which was a 6tb wd blue.
Another seller still has some available at £123.
