Heat added - nice find.
Am I the only one that thinks technology advancement has slowed down? We should be on Petabytes at this price by now!
2TB plus upgrade kit looks even more inviting Be quick.
NVMe hard drives are more reliable, almost the same price and better performance, I burned 3 SSD hard drives in past 5 years, all of them are sucks!

Looking further down the page under the 2TB + Upgrade kit it says this bundle contains 500GB SSD and Upgrade kit. They'll have some explaining to do...
People realise that SSD prices will fall. They're a really expensive form of permanent storage right now. You're much better off buying a large, cheap HDD and a smaller SSD. SSDs are really only better for storing apps on, not media. Are people really going to have 2TB worth of apps?

I hate when I get a box of sucks.
Anyone own one of these 3D NAND based SSDs? Is there noticeable real world performance improvements over the planar NAND based SSDs?
This 3D NAND still doesn't seem to be any better than the EVO 850 according to this article:

I don't have any apps. I understand that twitface users get giddy about them though.
I do a lot of productive work with my computers and that find SSDs are fully justifiable from a price perspective.

Don't be such an Angry Bird.

Yes, because a spinning metal platter that relies on tiny microscopic magnetic readings spinning at over 5000 times per second is more reliable long term than a solid state storage that is completely inanimate.

Well, when it's about 10x the cost...

Apps, no, games, yes.

If you have a large library of games on Steam you could send easily fill a 2TB drive up as many games are 100GB+.

I agree with you for apps though, well, generally speaking. I use Adobe apps a lot and a fast SSD can really help with encoding and editing videos etc.

I already have a 250GB 960 Evo for apps so I'm leaning towards a 1TB or 2TB drive for general usage and a large 3.5" 4TB+ drive for media (perhaps a NAS drive).

The main problem I have against using an internal 3.5" drive is noise. They can be really noisy, which can get picked up in recordings.

Very tempted to order it and argue my case if I don't get the 2TB

I wish 2tb were enough for my steam library, i spilled over onto another 1tb HDD about two years ago, and that is without adding my games from Origin, Uplay, Gog, Battlenet, at this stage if i were to play one and complete one game a week it would take me 14 years just on finish my steam account. lol

I wish i could go back to just two floppy disk trays that held about 30 Amiga/Atari St games and that was it, what happened. lol
Oh the old Amiga days. Didn't Monkey Island have about 4,000 disks? Ok it was probably about twelve but I remember me and my friends playing it and no wanting to go to certain parts of the game as it meant changing disk again

So what are you using to store games?

I was trying to stay away from mechanical drives apart for storage, but I'm planning on playing more games via my PC and I know that even if I just download five or six games, the best part of a terabyte will be taken up.

Can't you uninstall the games you don't play any more and reinstall them if necessary?
^^That IS with not all my steam games installed. lol

On my 1.81tb(2 gig) HDD my steam folder takes up 1.54tb, on my other 983gig(1TB) HDD my steam folder takes up 556gig, and that is with just 435 installed games out of 788, it's madness i tell you, complete madness. lol

I don’t think they would honour it as upon checking out, the order does state 500gb. Only grounds for dispute are screen shooting your selection.
