Lowest price according to Camel3. Super tempted so I can finally replace that noise/shaky 2TB WD Black HDD I have.

Anyone think SSDs will reach the $200 price point this year?

Tempted. How is Sandisk's reliability? Any Crucial, WD or Samsung on Sale?

question... how is different running a 128gb SSD on C: drive (Window 10 OS) and have a 2TB SATA drive on D: drive.
Don't you get the same results? I mean you can have all your software installed on C: drive right? D-drive to store data/jpg/video etc...

Thanks..

Games is software too, and some people might want all their games on SSD, faster to load, and it's ridiculous how many games nowadays are like over 100gb size.

I have a 240gb version of this Sandisk ssd, it has been working great for like 6 years I think, if this 2tb is a bit cheaper, personally I don't mind getting Sandisk again.

For lots of people, 128GB would be inadequate for their software needs, especially games but other things too, so while windows would be installed on the C drive, people would install their games etc on the D drive.

I read the first generation of this was MLC but then they switched to TLC.

My setup is 128GB ssd (System) + 500GB ssd (Programs and Games) + 2TB HDD (Storage) in my desktop, which works well for me. This 2TB drive is tempting, but I don't think I need it personally. It's a great dirve if it's the only drive you can install in your computer, such as in some laptops.

Tempting but I am not gaming much anymore so will have to stick to my 7200rpm storage drive

Seems this is dramless?

The ultra version is $30 more with dram

But then you get into other 2tb SDD options for SATA and get into NVME like XPG SX8100 2TB non pro at $279

Just a thought.
An SSD, M2 or any non HDD type of drive is going to be much faster but it comes with 1 downside.
If it ever crashes or goes down, it will usually be without any warning and be a total loss.

Some companies claim that they can recover the data on SSD's but it's going to cost way more than recovery costs on an HDD.

Make sure that you backup your data.

Indeed, even as then if you have 1 NVMe slot used, you need to either have a PCIe to NVMe adapter or the latest motherboards that supports an additional m.2 slot. I believe to reduce the cost of failures would be going with the $30 dolalr extra DRAM

Thanks for confirming. May buy this and slap on an external enclosure. Would be perfect for VMs or forensics.

Unfortunately it is just a lot of hearsay around the internet and without any tools to verify what it really is, no one is certian. WD doesn't include the technology of the SSD in their spec sheets either.

Hmmm... I do want the added space of either 1TB or 2TB for my old PC so I can slap it into the remaining SATA 3 ports lol. My SATA 6 ports are filled up.

I caved, I bought it. I plan on replacing my spinny drive and so my desk stops vibrating every time I access the D drive.

Great price for a 2TB SSD from a reputable brand. Too bad it's not m.2 which is what my notebook uses.
