I've been looking at 2.5" SSDs for my laptop.

I've mostly been looking at 2TB and 4TB drives and came across the Samsung SSD 860 QVO on sale on Amazon.de and Amazon.co.uk. Not the best 2.5" on the market, but the faster SSDs in this format are more expensive. It's a decent drive and comes with a 3 year warranty.

Check Amazon.fr for the best price too

If you use currency credit card such as Halifax Credit card, you will not pay any additional fees.

Total cost, including delivery fees, are detailed below (correct at time of writing).

Those damn Parisians!!!

Nice find. Definitely go to Amazon.fr if it's a few quid cheaper
QLC nand, no thanks.
If you're looking to buy the 4TB, don't buy from Germany.

It's just dropped at Amazon UK to £312.99. Other models are the same price at the moment.

Pity it's not EVO
The 1TB and 2TB ones are a bad deal, considering you can get the TLC-based Sandisk Ultra 3D equivalents for the same price from Amazon UK, which are better drives in every way.
I was hoping to get one of those ones too, but there's no bargains in the 4TB range. This is significantly cheaper.

I'll primarily be using mine to store games and edited videos. It won't be a primary drive.

The WD Blue 3D NAND 2TB drive is £173.99, but 4TB is £480.07 (It was down at £399.99 previously).

Would love me a 4TB but jeez that price is eye-watering.

Maybe I'll get one when it is half that price or more.

I came across this article which explains how the QVO drives work. As you know, these aren't as good as the TLC SSDs when it comes to endurance etc, but they're not as bad as many people are making out either.

glob3trotters.com/por…ds/

These drives use "Turbo Write" caching to improve performance. The 1TB has 42GB of cache and the 2TB and 4TB drives have 78GB.

When you're transferring files, you should transfer speeds over 500MB/s. When you use up your cache though, speeds will drop down to about 70 to 80MB/s.

For most general users, this shouldn't be a major issue as you're unlikely to be transferring more than the cache amount every day unless you were copying hundreds of GBs of files back and fourth. It is important to be aware of this limitation though.

But...but...but... it's Samsung. It HAS to be the best possible drive, right? They wouldn't be riding their name and making QLC nand drives too that are priced like TLC?! Say it ain't so!
