[Amazon.ca] Patriot Burst Elite SATA III SSD (2.5" Solid State Drive) 1.92TB for $130

Patriot Burst Elite SATA 3 1.92TB SSD 2.5" Solid State Drive : $129.99
https://www.amazon.ca/Patriot-Burst-Eli ... B08LKTXYNQ

Sold by Highly Anticipated Electronics and Fulfilled by Amazon.

Specs below the price state:
Read speed 320 Megabytes Per Second

I have no experience with Patriot products or this reseller. Fortunately, I can afford to sit this one out since I haven't yet managed to fill the 1 TB SSD that I bought last year.

A brief search on Google showed this Reddit thread about this seller:

QLC and DRAMless. The 3 year warranty is nice but the performance of this SSD is pretty bad.

Prices are dropping fast. There will be better deals soon.

Maybe as a porn drive, this would be ok, outside of that its usefulness is limited.

Right now it is a legit hot deal for 2TB, but I think people are not going to commit until black Friday. This black Friday might be legendary.

Depends on the use case, but I'm thinking there might be better deals to be had later on, especially for drives with DRAM and TLC/MLC/SLC. I just bought a 1 TB MX500, so I'm wondering how low it'll go, but if the CAD dips, these prices can stay the same (kinda likely) or go up (unlikely). I saw some other posts alluding to price drops due to the recession crushing demand.

Without DRAM and being QLC I wouldn't use this as a daily driver, but it would be ideal for cheap storage. I would say yes, it is a deal for the use case of cheap storage. Good for a newgroup drive for Linux ISOs, or various forms of high-capacity media.

Would you recommend this drive for storing video games on? Even without DRAM or anything it can't be worse then a HDD strictly for game storage?

That's what I was thinking it would be decent for.
I'm going to try and resist this and pray that something better goes on sale for BF for that purpose personally though.

Yeah, it'd be better than an HDD for sure. I think 2TB is attractive in this price range, but I'm no expert yet. Black Friday is around the corner though.

I was thinking of using something like this as a video game drive, but I'm going to wait.

The brand is relatively unknown. I know about it (used them (SD cards) since 2007 for my DSLR), but I don't know how they fare with SSDs. But if you are getting the game through legit means (Steam/Epic/Origin/PSN/Xbox-platform?), then even if the hard disk dies, you can still restore them with a good fibe connection.

I have a PS4 slim, so it's bottlenecked by the SATA2 architecture, an SSD doesn't make THAT much sense. That's another consideration, how is the SSD connected to your RAM/CPU.

I bought 2 patriot rage usb sticks on Nvidia's recommendation for a shield. Worst USB sticks ever. Very slow (like 45 seconds to be detected slow) and easily would corrupt, likely from being slow. The package said they were USB 3.1 but the performance was USB 1. if the USB sticks are a precursor for the SSD performance I wouldn't waste time.

Are prices dropping for every PC part or just SSDs?

Depends if China can make it, they recently can make ssd , so ssd price drops faster than any others, can you imagine I paid 389 for 970evo 1tb in 2018, ;now it is just 129...When they can make graphics card or cpu, you probably just need to pay rtx X080 for 400 dollars or 1x700k for 200 dollars.
