Takes me to the us homepage and now I cant get back to the Uk site?!
Can I shuck it to use internally for my pc do you know?
You'll be able to use a drive like this to play old games via backwards compatibility but it won't be possible to store and play PS5 games on it. They're going to be selling M.2 SSD add-on cards instead, but expect those to be 2-3x the price at least.
The problem is UPS, not WD. They are terrible. I had issues with them delivering to a local shop and would not have known unless I chased it up.
I bought one of these just over a year ago for my ps4. About a week ago it stopped working. I've tried formatting but it wont read the disk. I've plugged it into my pc and run all sorts of tools on it but not got it to work. Basically a brick. Had nearly 3Tb of games on it. Gutted!
Nah I'm serious because the specs of the ps5 and Xbox is just crazy, literally better then most pcs
My recent experience with a MX500 has been very good. My almost 7-yr old laptop is flying now.
I’ve put the evo 860 in my MacBook Pro mid 2012 and honestly its at warp speed now. Working 6 programs faster than it was opening just 1 before. Also it’s practically silent & doesn’t get as hot. Maxing your ram is must too!
I failed to find any reviews on this at all which is annoying. I'd be inclined to go with the MX500 as it's not much more ~£10 extra. Avoid the QVO drive. Evo is good but it's an extra £30 on top of the MX500 and I don't see the point.
My point is there's not much in it, I'd get the Samsung myself
Cheers but cost isn't an issue. So 860 Evo then?
Does this stop 5G signals.... (popcorn)
I need an update if anyone actually gets these
Worked for me, just ordered 8 of them!
Yes, Went quicker than expected. Hoping they honour :)
That is a +20 you never deserved! Buy the item and post your receipt then tell people about a misprice - is the only ever correct method.
Did you order one, @idontflycathay ? (shock)
Sumup is cheaper
Sorry voting COLD. MyPos maybe a bit more expensive (29 gbp) but only 0.99% fee and you don't need phone/wifi to take payment as it have its own free 3g sim inside (or you can put your card) so it's much much better for me.
Fair enough. I have no issues with Worldpay
I wouldn't touch Worldpay with a bargepole - dinosaurs stuck in the past.
Worldpay have a similar Payg option that I think has slightly lower fees, and for virtual terminal I use Square as no monthly charge, transaction fees only
I feel the sweet spot price is still for 500gb and 1tb SSDs. I was expecting 2TB will come to the sweet spot prices this year, but we are in a different world now
This is great. Please post on all threads where the item is not as fast as an Xbox or PS5, just so we know and tell us how to get the parts now.
Price is baaah
I paid about £208 in 2019 November for it and ditto your comment, but it was still definitely worth it. Got it running my a PS4 pro.
Cracking price. Heat. (y)
Thanks, my chassis is matx.
The Asrock I linked and the Gigabyte H310M-S2H are mATX format, yes. The Z390-P here is full-size ATX.
The Asrock above is mATX isn't it? Board looks small, but cant see mATX on the blurb.
I was considering gigabyte h310m s2h 2.0 and thats matx
Very similar board to the H310M-K. Well, whatever you get, it will be a higher end board than the H310M-R/K, the Z390-P is one of the better ones so it's up to you.
Good price, good brand, has been a little cheaper before but still excellent value for this much convenient storage. It will be 'slow' as well before people start complaining (and they will).
Thanks for the offer Sarden84 to buy it , No need, I'll get round it. Advice as always much appreciated. (y)
I bought it, on it's way. I'm new to pc build's and I did see the number 2. It's a learning curve, only just found out what Tray Bulk means . Thanks eddamoo (y) .
Ur correct. Missed that lol. I saw the previous comment and then saw the 1x8 in the description. So dont buy it. Btw: if u bought it.. I'll buy it off u when it comes.
Dude everyone is telling you get ram but you have 2x 8gb sticks, they haven't read your invoice correctly. You should already have 16GB
Perfect. Will come back to you for the card upgrade. Then look into a new system a little time later . Thanks again.
Typically they write at 30MB/s for a few seconds then dribble down to 10-15MB/s if it's a particularly big copy due to the way their buffer works. I've gotten into arguments about how people shouldn't even post these if the most important spec - the write speed - isn't shown anywhere. My favourite analogy for it - advertising a kettle as having a 1 litre per second pour speed but not mentioning that it takes half an hour to boil. But because people heat them up, people keep posting them. This is Sandisk palming off old kit at a seemingly reasonable price to folk who don't know any better. If they were proud of the write speed it'd be right there on the packaging.
Sandisk only says lower than advertised read speed and varies by capacity. Best to hunt for reviews.
Yes, it uses Star Trek gobbley gook technology to protect you.
Does it guard against 5g?
Usually means write speeds are slow. Manufacturers don't advertise it.
This is the way to go , others just too slow
this one is alot faster but costs a bit more £12.95 https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-Extreme-microSDXC-Adapter-Performance/dp/B07FCMBLV6/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=SanDisk+Extreme+PRO+64GB&qid=1590880051&s=computers&sr=1-4
Perfect timing, I was literally just looking for a card for my Switch.
Nice (y) And if anyone wants 3 Pack: It's £21.69 Delivered @ Picstop
Bought one. Thanks
If you don't make it clear people kick off 🥴
"Key Features THIS ITEM HAS A DAMAGED BOX !" (y)
I'd recommend they look at Caseking.de for pre-builts and they even have a configurator so they can put in the specs they want and order the machine to made.
Thats crazy expensive for those old specs, get him a 3600, decent mobo, rx5700xt and at least 16gg 3200mhz. something around those lines, with case and decent psu + hdd and ssd can be found for £800-900. A prebuilt might be a bit more expensive.
Just put an alert for gaming computer on here. My mate is looking for a prebuilt for his cousin in Germany, these are the specs he's looking for, budget £1,100-200, let me know if you find any good deals guys, thanks. I personally don't know anything about this stuff. Prozessor: i7 7700k Grafikkarte: GeForce GTX 1070 RAM: 16 GB Festplatte: 512GB SSD
BIG fan of s/h Lenovo Thinkpads. I've had 3 x220s variously maltreated by kiddies, This one is built to last. I'm after another - it's this deal vs. 5 year old x260 or similar. Think I'd rather go s/h.
Hard disagree, thinkpads, x and t series particularly are wonderful second hand machines, many have spent their life never outside an office, and they are the easiest machines in the world to swap out parts for. Not sure why not, until they get to high school, all they need is a browser. Both my kids grew up using Linux, using Linux on thinkpads, as it happens. One is now at high school and has had to start using windows, but recently requested a dual boot so he can use Linux again. Linux for kids is great tbh, adults may struggle with it, if all they have used is windows, but if it's what you start using, it's what you know. I'd recommend it for kids, certainly over windows
Always a dice roll buying a used laptop, especially a Thinkpad which tend to have had a hard life. If you can find one in great condition then wonderful, but it's still had someone's dickbeaters all over it... (highfive) Linux for Little Johnny and Ethel? Yeah, no.
Lenovo aren't fit for purpose

It gone up in price but you can buy them direct from Samsung £23
50MB/s write, joke as my "fiber" ADSL upload speed (lol)
This is one of the best USB sticks currently on the market in smaller sizes, so probably just as great in the larger sizes too. Heat added! (y)
Not at this price. :D You are looking at £300- £500- price range.
I use this as an additional drive for my Steam and multimedia library. Very pleased with its performance having purchased through WD store for less than a oner recently with discount code.
For the vast majority of people, they're not going to notice a difference (or sometimes only a very minor difference) between an NVMe SSD and SATA SSD. Although this NVMe SSD is one of the slower ones.
Ahh yes he did. My appologies
He said sata SSD not HDD.
