Discrete gpu will always be harder to find in a cheap laptop. What I’m saying is, pretty much any decent midrange laptop will be equipped with 4 core cpu releasing 2019 onwards.

Picard123

Depends what your definition is of "plays every game just fine". If you don't mind jagged edges, all the details turned down, no light reflections, low fps, graphical slow downs and it generally looking terrible when playing AAA games, then sure, it plays them "just fine"....

wixelix

It is an issue, for example this is rather recent. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Thinkpad-X260-won-t-boot-after-RAM-upgrade/td-p/3957460 There is a chance it can work by just buying a random stick of the same speed but there's also a chance it wont work. Then you've wasted time + money. Always try to get the exact same stick.

Simon_E

I regularly do it. You do realise that motherboards chipsets are built to handle this and only in rare circumstances does it cause issue. Sodimm ram all runs at the same voltage (nearly all anyway), the timings dont matter that much as motherboard will put both to the same timings as slowest one, I have already addressed the speed in previous post. If different speed will go to slowest speed of the two modules. It really isnt an issue in modern computing. Read up a little about it for modern motherboards (you prob have experience with older hardware)

Kigo1

It's common practise for MSI to put in minimum replaceable hardware as they try to make the laptop as cheap as possible so customers can source and spec it as desired

Are Zapals delivering again does anybody know? In a deal I posted recently it was brought to my attention that all their shipments were being stopped at import due to tax fraud, despite them still taking orders. any known updates to this, or has anyone received anything from them this month?

Chadwell

Depends on how you use it. If it was for a gaming machine with operating system and games it doesn't matter too much if it fails. MLC flash is supposed to have higher endurance than TLC. I had a patriot ssd fail and it could be read but any new writes just went to the cache and on restart the machine was in it's previous state. No errors. Took me hours to work out what was going on. It didn't matter as it was for gaming but if it was your dissertation you could be driven to seek your head examining.

taras

Who is Vaseky ............. cold

Salfordgirl1

"Cue comments about reliability concerns....." The only way to make a cheap SSD is to use inferior components. It's really that simple. This SSD might not have a cache, might have a poor controller, might have faulty memory chips etc. It will either be extremely slow at certain tasks or it will have a reliability concern.

dickybow

The speeds you quoted is a range for all V800 drives. The low speed is for the 60GB which is most probably a very old chipset. These 500GB drives rate much higher at 500mbs

Last time I saw.one of these deals from.ebuyer saw people saying for couple of weeks they still haven't got it. I tend to buy from scan unless ebuyer is really good deal just because service is better imo. I got one from scan last time and had the code later that day via email.

pipboy142

How long does it typically take for Ebuyer to send the code?

mabenson

Anyone actually got the code? Drive arrived and installed but still waiting for the code. Ebuyer aren't responding to email or enotes.

Or just download the ssd migration tool from Samsung and clone the drive onto your new one. Worked perfectly for me.

Balfington

I have a laptop with a one SATA and Nvme drive because its slots demand it. Can I tell the difference? Um, nope. If it was possible I absolutely would not have bothered with Nvme.

diktiomenos

Yes, there are. eg: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Transcend-TS-CM80S-Solid-State-Enclosure/dp/B01N4EUXCU What you need to know is the type of the drive and the physical length. The M2 format comes in 2 electrical types, SATA and NVMe. They aren't compatible to each other and M2 ports don't necessarily support both (even though physically, the port is nearly identical). In terms of the length, the M2 drives come in different sizes eg. 2242, 2260 or 2280. The last 2 numbers is the length (in mm). If your case fits 2280 (the largest one) then it can fit the smaller ones too, but there are some shorter cases that fit only 2242.

Bobbystein

(lol) Why compare an NVME drive to a SATA drive? Are you on something? Can I have some?

Uhm... Okay. I mean I wasn't disagreeing with the guy.. I was just saying it's a shame.

Dave_Wills

Well, we often except Steam and the like have our best interests at heart, but only react when presented with the negative. I kinda think Mr Allyn Malventano knows what he's talking about, so consider his opinion worth noting. I will possibly install all games to conventional sata and copy across. I like to buy good drives, so its good housekeeping, me thinks. Who knows.

freerangeninja

It's a shame because it kinda removes the point of having that amazing sequential read/write speed

Dave_Wills

Oh, and make sure, if you download steam games, to initially DL them to a conventional Sata drive, then copy over to SSD View 40 mins in. https://twit.tv/shows/this-week-in-computer-hardware/episodes/480?autostart=false I'm not paranoid but i like to air on the side of caution, well, just a little paranoid.

You can often buy spare keys from ebay where people scrap old systems and sell individual keys with their clips. Depends on the type of keyboard but I imagine an older model the keys are replaceable. I had to replace the keyboard on a newer thin model and it was held in place by something like 30 tiny screws, that was a nightmare!

dreamz

Omg. Trust Apple to do that. Always making it difficult to repair or upgrade your own machine. Everything doubling in price. I took my MacBook Pro to Apple the other day because my one year old pulled a key off the keyboard. The genius just told me it’s not repairable. Without even looking at it properly. Just felt like he couldn’t be bothered.

Evilsatan

After your model they introduced proprietary drives which were very expensive, the only option was to buy the original Apple parts or one other company I am aware of had their own option which was still more expensive than normal NVMe drives and was slower than the Apple drives. Very annoying, even a simple cable that connects the touchpad to the logic board was over £80 when I needed one once.

arachnoid

even at 65.98 its not a bad price

dreamz

Oh not sure about modern ones. Mines 2009 one. If you can’t on modern that’s disgusting

I have never seen this 'rule', plus, if it wasn't allowed, the HotUKDeals staff would have taken down the post? To be perfectly honest, I think you are making this into something that it doesn't need to be. I saw it was cheaper, I posted the deal.

Because the marginal person buying an ssd is replacing a hdd in their old desktop or laptop not replacing their old ssd. I agree...

GwanGy

All these SSD co's love to quote the fastest seq speeds (clean, unfilled drive),.which wont really affect most people, rather than the 4k block speeds which will affect people esp. if this drive is used as a boot drive. Dram -less means that it gets a lot more writes than a normal cached drive. It would be nice to know what controller and namd it uses .. supposedly JMICRON ("the horror, the horror") but even then their problems were a few years ago. Cheap yes, worth your money?? highly debateable ...specially when known good brands are dropping their prices significantly

taras

Poor read/writes, along with lower 4k reads than writes. (based on 120gb/240gb). Basically don't buy

TehJumpingJawa

Interesting! So potentially rebadged refurbished devices, or(more likely) built from NAND that was rejected by big brand QA due to having too many dead cells. That's a lot more encouraging.

Thank you! I just thought m.2 was m.2 I didn't spot the difference, so thank you :D

Termy5678

The crucial MX500 is a sata 3 drive that's available with the M.2 form factor (easier installation). Whereas the Evo 970 is an NVMe drive. It's a different protocol and allows significantly higher performance than sata however can cost up to twice as much per gigabyte For most people, a sata drive is more than enough in terms of performance.

InfinityLoop

Would anyone have any views on this? 250GB for £79.99 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-V-NAND-Express-Solid-State/dp/B07CGGNX7S So half the space of the original posted one, but for some reason the speeds seem massively different? read/write speeds up to 3,500/2,700 MB/s*, approximately - for the Samsung one where as the originally posted one is reads/writes up to 560/510 MB/s Why is there such a difference are they completely different types of m2 or something?

Fitted one to a cheap laptop a few weeks ago, very speedy for a SATA drive. Faster than a WD Blue, only slightly overall slower than a Samsung 860. It does have better 4K random read performance though which is one of the most common tasks in Windows and makes everything feel very snappy.
