No dram. Write speeds are gonna suck


Anyone who is not a PC fanatic and upgrading from a normal HDD will see some significant performance improvements, so not everyone 'needs' DRAM.

The one's who tend to complain about DRAM-less SDD's, probably never had to boot from a normal hard drive before in their life.

Not everyone is in to bench marking. I'm yet to notice a real world difference and I play games and use Photoshop. I'm sure some people do certain things where you'll be able to tell the difference, but most won't.

Paris Hilton suck?
My motherboard only supports SATA revision 2.0. Would I see any benefit in getting an SSD with DRAM, rather than one without? I'm currently using a WD Blue 1TB 7200 RPM HDD as my boot drive.

Can I assume this would perform at reasonable speeds for NON volume O/S data I.e steam games etc?
Heat, nice to see the price falling for SSD. Fingers cross, more SSD will fall by black Friday.
Without DRAM this would probably make a good replacement drive for a PS4, or Xbox One.

Yes. Or buy two and set them up as one drive under Windows and your performance massively increases.
I bought an SSD for my old laptop - it went from being useable in 4-5ish minutes to 20-30 seconds and is so much more zippy, and has extended it's life by a few more years. I'd recommend anyone who has an HDD in their (out of warranty) laptop, and doesn't want to spend hundreds more on a completely new system, to upgrade with something like this.

Edit - if your laptop supports this. Use Crucial Systems Scanner to check

This would do for the internal backup drive in my PC.

Logged in with my EXISTING account and the price went UP by £10. Seems like WD think winning new customers is more valuable than not alienating existing ones.

Tried to create a new account with a different e-mail and nothing happened. Cleared cookies, same problem. Changing browser also did not fix it.

As you can imagine, I've not completed the purchase !
Yep, I tried to register on their site, and it just wouldn't work. Not a good start! I'll forget about this one.

And if you’re going to complain about no DRAM, you might as well skip that part and go straight to “why not PCIe storage though”.

Think about DirectStorage API too, which takes advantage of NVMe

use Macrium (free) to clone old drive to SSD first (use SATA/USB adapter of an external caddy) ( or do new install and put old HD in external caddy ( £7))

Would this be good for upgrading my PS4 HDD or would the 1TB Seagate Firecuda SSHD for £54 be better value. Not sure if the load speeds would be significantly better on this SanDisk SSD over the Seagate SSHD.

Booting wouldnt be affected at all by not having DRAM.

Yet others will realise the sustained write throughput when going dramless on SDD's can be well below that achieved with old fashioned mechanical drives.

Example a Barracuda 1TB HDD from 2016 (keeping cheap, there are faster) averages a sustained write at 156 MB/s whilst this averages 146 MB/s.

If the use case is not to move large files around then the odd time of being delayed installing something may not greatly impact. Of course if the SSD was not short changed in being dramless the Barracuda would be blown out of the water.

I swear people have a load of copy and paste comments about DRAM every time a SSD is posted up.

Don't get me wrong they are useful comments for people who don't know, but it does make me laugh that its the same argument every time.

Good Deal by the way.
I was thinking of getting this to swap 1tb hard drive xbox one x would this work .
Great deal

Personally if I was looking for a boost in loading times for PS4 and good value, go SSHD you could probably even get a 2TB SSHD for around the same sort of price as a 1TB SSD. From online testing(Forums and youtube) SSD vs SSHD the gist of it is there is a difference, but not significantly. Pros for the SSD it's a little faster and more reliable than a mechanical hard drive.

It might be worth just having a quick online(Youtube reviews easiest) before you buy either a SSHD or a SSD and see which one you will benefit more from. But if you have money to burn, hell buy a 2TB SSD, though I should mention the PS5 is just around the corner.
