Sandisk Ultra 3D 1TB SSD at Amazon.fr - £165!

30
Found 19th JunEdited by:"Uncommon.Sense"
Resonably priced, and quite decent 2.5" form factor SSD at only £165 shipped, and from Amazon.fr so you know it is going to be legit.

This is one of the newer models, with the following specs
  • Capacity: 1 TB
  • Read Speed: up to 560 MB/s
  • Write Speed: up to 530 MB/s
  • Rnd. Read: 95K IOPS
  • Rnd. Write: 84K IOPS
  • TBW: 400
  • Interface: SATA Revision 3.0 (6 Gb/s)
  • Manufacturer warranty: 3 years

You can get the whole datasheet/info about the Ultra 3D range from this link HERE!

Dispatched & Sold by Amazon.

Once in the basket the SSD is ~€182.35, and the shipping is only €5.54.
Paid for in € with a fee free card, including shipping it comes a total of ~€187.89, which translates to £164-167 depending on the card used, and exchange rate when you check out.

If you are still living in 1994, and don't have a free free card you can get the Revolut card HERE! which has some of the best exchange rates available, and no fees on the transaction when buying online. You can also opt for the full blown Halifax Clarity credit card - but as the name suggest this is a credit card, and you will need a decent credit rating in order to be accepted.

Great price but can’t bring myself to spend this much on such a big SSD just yet. Something about swapping computers too often and having too many of them! I’m still using 128 and 256GB disks. Though with the sizes games are reaching, this is making more and more sense.

Definite progress though, finally getting to mainstream pricing and not just for enthusiasts and the hardcore.

Wait till you upgrade to The 3,500mb/S ssds


I already have an NVMe SSD in a machine and it's a waste of time. I only want an SSD for general snappiness/IOPS, I rarely ever do sequential transfers where I need maximum throughput. 500MB/s is fine for just about everything I do day-to-day and I'm sure it's the same for most others.

People seem to forget that SSDs are so many orders of magnitude faster than a hard disk that a really fast SSD doesn't actually feel all that much quicker compared to a slow SSD.

Just migrate your internal PC disks into a tiered storage array, and no need to buy a bigger drive. That is assuming at least one of your PC's is capable of this.

There’s nothing I need that much space for rapid access to - most of what I use are laptops, usually they have a 2.5” bay but if I’m lucky I get M.2 + HDD or mSATA + HDD. And I only use the hard disk for media anyway. Documents, work, OS, etc can live on a small SSD. I’d rather have a few machines with smaller disks than one machine with a giant drive especially as I can be working in any one of four locations on a given day.
Probably a silly question, but can this be used as an external drive for games on an Xbox one x?

It’s probably wasted as an external drive but internal, it will reduce your startup and load times massively. I’m still not sure how important SSDs are for consoles but some gamers swear by them.

I couldn't agree MORE!!!.

It's about high time for sure, lol.

Now, if ONLY this would favour us all some more, and actually/perhaps, drop to around the £100 mark instead or something?, hehehehehehehe. :-D

This is nonsense and totally incorrect. Having an external ssd for loading games is faster in almost every single game sometimes up to 50% faster. So buy yourself a cheap ssd usb caddy and this will be great for an Xbox one. I always loaded into games first when playing against mates and I was only one with ssd.
Isn't this very cheap?
I don't remember seeing any 1 tb SSD cheaper.

I could wait til Black Friday, but this is very tempting.

Oh, and I must be living in 1994, cause other than my 2 bank cards, I don't have extra cards.
Would it be better to order in euro's using a standard card? Cause I'm getting £178 if paying in pounds.

We're not far off now, at £100 I probably would buy a 1TB SSD. Then again, maybe I'd just get a 256GB and keep my hard disk, as on second thoughts I never need to carry that much rapid storage with me - I always thought 256GB was the sweet spot, that's plenty for Windows, it's updates, Office 2016 and my Dropbox sync with well over 200GB left for whatever else I dump on it.

You could apply for a Revolut virtual card & use that today.
I only buy cheap 480gb ssds, got my 6tb x300 for the games which costed me £125 years ago
Shows as EUR 226,9. Expired?

Dropbox is excellent too!.

Though saying that, don't rely on it toooooooo much, yeh?.

200GB of Cloud Storage is a LOT to possibly lose in anyone's money?! (if/when certain thing's goes t!ts up ... )

Where the purpose befits to do so, have more than 1 'source', if you can help it?. :-)
same shows 226.9 euros even after added in basket, which means £ 200.

The OP mentioned £Pounds Sterling only though ...

Do a Foreign Exchange thing on it first (Euro's to Pounds, etc), and see what you then get to begin with first, or whatever?. :-)
Expired. 226.9 euros now instead of 187 euros. Shame as I'd have bitten at that price!

Seagate 2TB FireCuda Gaming SSHD
If you get this drive for you console this would excellent choice mate. First its cheaper than ssd. second is got much more memory on it. Choice after you but if you google you will find that a lot people do this
Dont get me wrong but for 10 to 20 % quick loading isnt worth the money. Seagate firecuda sshd 2tb gaming does the job well and money wise is a excellent choice.
Because x-box already have a descent internal hdd and that why ssd makes very little difference!
I remember these drives being around the £400 mark and saying id wait for it to get closer to this price and was told I was dreaming.

Not dreaming anymore - the price has come down

If you boot multiple operating systems this is useful or multiple copies of the same operating system, this makes sense, I think.

Probably, but this isn’t something the average person does! For the niche cases, it is very useful! If I could justify this much on multiple machines I’d be all over it.

SSHDs are terrible. I suppose if it can accurately cache the game data frequently used then maybe there’s a slight benefit but it’s much closer to a hard disk for speed than any SSD except in very specific scenarios. Yes, it’s much cheaper but there’s a reason for that.

I did test on ff15 when was playing with ssd my primary drive and then installed game on my secondary drive which is firecuda. And there is not much difference mate thb. launch time almost the same because sshd have got that feature as you probably know they start like ssd and then switch to sshd. 7200 rpm are good if you need something more profesional then yes go for ssd for whatever reason.

Yes but it cached FF15 then by the sounds of it. They’re better than they were but still not a patch on a real SSD, 7200rpm is better than 5400 but still way back. If you’re making random accesses and it can’t work out what to cache, you’ll get lots of cache misses and you’re back to hard disk speeds again. Personally I prefer 256GB SSD for OS and any games I might be playing + 3TB hard disk for mass storage, then I can decide what goes on the SSD not Seagate. Obviously I’d rather have a massive SSD just not at this price!
