NICEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE 2TB? are you serious? at this price???

Ordered for the future... as I am upgrading.... but this i fantastic!!!
I'm impressed with my 1tb Sabrent. This is a bargain for 2tb!
Samsung Evo still better?
Hot.

Cheaper to buy 2 1TB sticks, if you have the room/hardware though.
Have a 500gb in my new build which cost £60, first NVMe I’ve had so can’t give a comparison but it’s really quick. Tempted with a second

It's a little bit better yes. It's also more than twice the price.
malachi09/11/2019 07:03

Samsung Evo still better?


Yes, but unless you're working with large files, i.e. you're a video editor or similar, you won't see a real world difference. In fact, other than boot times if you put Windows on it, you'll barely see a difference between this and a regular SATA SSD.
This or an external t5 I already have a 2 tv drive
Basically skint. But this is a great deal so my arms twisted haha

The Adata XPG Pro 2TB was £198 recently, and it has 5y warranty and an actual specified TBW, I preferred that one for not much extra.

I doubt the 2 tb nvme will drop this low in the next 6 months. I am as it happens upgrading... buying/making a new system. Just biding on the whole for BFriday

I got the Adata drive but this one is possibly faster on pcie4. Not sure the Adata supports that.

The one posted by the OP is PCI-E 3.0 only. Sabrent do make a 4.0 compatible drive @ £399.99
Good deal.

I'm reluctant to invest in SATA SSDs any more as NVME drives creep down in price.

I reckon a good setup would be a 1x 256 GB NVME drive for OS and apps (being smaller makes it much easier to image and restore if needed), one 1-2TB NVME drive for larger games that need them (check out Star Citizen's load times), then SATA SSDs / HDDs for everything else.
It's worth looking at the cooling options for these as most M2 slots are located right in between the CPU and the top PCI lane. Meaning they're prone to thermal throttling if they get too hot. I believe they also slow down once past 50% full.

I have the 512GB version of this, and it flies and loads up the Adobe Creative Cloud suite apps in a couple of seconds.
I'm upgrading my 2600K computer on Nov 25th with a new Socket x570 AMD 3950x setup... I want to get a 2TB+ NVMe. Is it worth going with this considering; I am not on a tight budget, if I can get extra performance/reliability/features, I should.

Note I will be doing 4K video editing/media production and I can leverage every extra bit of speed - but I still value good price/performance

I would avoid this SSD because sabrent has pulled a bait and switch and installed slower component's

I can't quite tell, from reading that thread, HOW much slower it would be performance wise though.

That is what is currently unclear, if the performence loss is nothing then no issues but its just something to be currently wary of

Don't know what the thread is going on about - just post speed tests end of!

All that talk in the thread I fell asleep twice!
Thank you for sharing, we have added your thread to the Highlights pages
Been watching the numerous threads with interest and can report no issues so far with these drives and the speeds are pretty impressive. I am currently about to switch my setup around to the following

2TB PCIE4 as Boot (the expensive one of the sabrent range)
Asus Hyper NVME Card with 2x 2TB PCIE running in Raid 0
Asus Hyper NVME Card with 2x 2TB PCIE running in Raid 0

A total of 5 drives (10TB) running on X570 MB with the Ryzen 3900, 128GB RAM. In my case I am not interested in Gaming so my Graphics card has been relegated to x4 connection.
I fully expect some faffing wiith the Hyper cards as the driver setup arrangement is fiddly
Have had to strap the case down as its got a tendancy to fly.

Still got 2 M2 slots spare and 4 SATA spare. Bring on BF

Buy it, and if you dont get the advertised speeds, send it back. Not much to lose.

That reddit thread looks like some kind of cry wolf thing. Manufacturer would be switching components especially they are talking about a generation of drive to another. And the OP seems to make recommendations or analysis based on a single review - unverified at best.

Great price for this drive.

Since this deal is closed I'm unsure if anyone here will get a notification of this but here's hoping.
Anyone here with a knowledge of building pcs, (an up to date knowledge) willing to speak to me about a gaming build? I'm looking to build a pc from scratch after black Friday/cyber Monday and could use some advice, I'm out the loop due to family etc.
My main thought is building around a
ryzen 7 3800x cpu but that's as far as I've got because I have some questions about compatibility and ssd drives. Mainly should I just install a 1tb ssd and run everything, games, os and general storage from it? Or is that a bad idea.
Anyway, if anyone gets this and is willing to speak to me either via email text WhatsApp etc please feel free to give me a shout on here.
Thanks,
(James I'm a 37 years young, copper from Scotland with a basic knowledge of building pcs which is very out of date)
Hi

I usually store games on separate Hdd same with data. Also it's easier when you reinstalling complete fresh windows as many modern games you can simply after new windows just give path for game files etc. Also when anything fails in terms of software...just simply wipe out C drive and that's it. All depending from budget and expansions possibilities...I rather have few drives even smaller than one big one separated onto partitions...from my previous experience when hdd fails is less hassle to recover data.

It basically comes down to money and ports. Most people tend to install 1 SSD or m.2 drive large enough for all their games, software etc. Usually 512gb / 1tb is enough.

Then run x amount of larger mechanical drives for storing.
Feel free to message me if you want any other info..

Depend on how much storage you need. SSD as storage is more expensive than using HDD. But if you need to access the files regularly and they are fairly large files like raw photos, videos edits etc then SSD storage would be well worth it as the time you save is a significant offset from the skier read and writes onto HDD. Also SSD will generally speaking having much longer endurance than HDD as storage. The data won’t likely to deteriorate over time and you will not suffer from bad sectors if you read from the drive a lot and does writes occasionally or don’t have huge amount of writes and rewrites to degrade the nands.

As the SSD prices are coming down significantly, for example the 2TB sabrant is only £190 so that’s a lot of onboard (in your computer) storage that has fast access speed.

If you need more than that in terms storage, you should consider off board storage solutions. External disk storages, NAS, cloud storage etc. The reason being is a lot of stored data in the computer creates a problem as there is a single point of failure and all you data etc will be gone.

I just tested the sabrent 2tb drive i got and it beats my samsung 960 pro and 970 evos. So looks fine to me!

For an ssd the same price as a sata drive im certainly not complaining (unless it fails after a week!)
