Crazy prices!
Cyber blk days ended roll on the deals lol
According to reviews these SSDs are very slow. It seems to be rubbish even for the low amount of money.
These SSDs seem more reliable and faster for around the same price point.

Yeah I'm especially liking the "CNC Shiny Edge - metal shell design with high optical and wire drawing". It makes all the difference.

Respect to the OP for finding these ssd's at such good prices. Remember, h8ers gonna h8. But hopefully this is the start of the sub-£80 1TB ssd. Its not before time.
Wouldnt trust either of these in my system

So, the friendly neighborhood spider man is suggesting a Yucun drive instead of Lexar as more reliable. What's happened to the world????

OP, have some heat.

My own tests of this drive (I own one) show it has the same performance as most other non DRAM cached SSDs such as the Crucial BX500 and the Integral P series. (I've got Evo, BX500, Integral P, Lexar NS100 and sandisks for comparisons)

Results are pretty much identical. Most tech reviewers tell you to avoid any non dram cacheless SSDs which gives you about 2 choices for SATA - Crucial MX500 or Samsung Evo 860. Real world use of these drives is very different to tech journo reviews.

For cheap upgrade it doesn't matter.
For power users get a drive with DRAM cache.

WD Blue uses Dram caching and is a great drive and usually on offer somewhere. I would personally rate it above either the Crucial or Samsung similar offerings but they all perform around the same.

I have one of the 500GB Lexar drives in my PS4 Pro and it does a decent job it certainly loads faster than the stock mech drive.

I've not tried the WD drives but I know they bought Sandisk so may be same as some of those?

I do find most tech reviews of the cheaper non dram SSDs generally tell you to avoid and people just regurgitate this over and over, yes they're bottom of the range SSDs but they're still usually a big improvement over mechanical drives.
