[Amazon.ca] Silicon Power 128GB / 256GB / 512GB / 1TB for $18.99 / $25.99 / $41.99 / $81.99 SATA 3D NAND SSDs (M.2 ATL too!)

ATL (According to CCC).

Great budget SATA 2.5" SSD (agruably better than Kingston, Timetic, or ADATA).

DRAMless so there will be at least one person poopooing on this deal, but there are lots of uses for this SSD (old personal computer/laptop).

128GB $18.99 https://www.amazon.ca/Silicon-Power-128 ... 131&sr=8-8
256GB $25.99 https://www.amazon.ca/Silicon-Power-256 ... 131&sr=8-4
512GB $41.99 https://www.amazon.ca/Silicon-Power-512 ... 131&sr=8-5
1TB $81.99 https://www.amazon.ca/Silicon-Power-A58 ... r=8-6&th=1

M.2 are also on sale.

1TB NVMe is pretty good priced; so is the 512GB at $45 TBH (for those that don't need huge drives). But, what controller is this using anyway?

Edit: Answering my own question, it uses SM2263XT and Intel 64L TLC NAND... Review is here:

(This is for the A60 NVMe drives, I didn't pay any attention to the SATA ones, sorry :lol: )

With these prices, seems like QLC "never happened"--and we should all be thankful for that! At least complaints about being "DRAMless" are better than QLC!

PS5 requires a Gen4 drive, this won't work.

PS4, not sure but I think anything will work--pretty much any ol' SATA drive will work in there.

Every test video I've seen has shown the difference in load times is minimal on the PS4. Better running a larger drive than a smaller SSD.

The computer component sales are going to be insane this year. Not only are we exiting a massive semiconductor bubble, but we're also in a recession. Demand evaporated overnight.

Was going to mention the same thing but I wasn't sure about the Professional edition. That said are 2.5" HDDs even much cheaper than SSDs these days?

...

Answering my own question, looks like at 1TB there's not much savings with an HDD but above that yeah...a 2TB HDD is like $100 to a SATA SSD which is like $200, and that money in HDD buys you 5TB (in 2.5").

The videos I have seen reviewing the pro getting an SSD upgrade state substantial rendering and load time improvements with horizon load time being cut in half.

The pro has a faster hard drive data transfer rate than the regular PS4 so it can utilize (I think 600 vs 300) the benefits more.

That's my noobie analysis...please correct me if I'm wrong.

Nah you prolly know more about it than me, lol. I never paid that much attention to PS4 so if you've read that the Pro benefits, I'm guessing it does. I do remember articles showing the original PS4 didn't benefit much but things change and as you say the Pro does have faster hardware.

This more recent article seems to say you do get a performance boost in either PS4:

Massive demand destruction. Europe will have a winter from hell, tying up capital, further cooling demand.

Still a good deal for those needing drives right now.

share link of the $6.99 bracket, also will the TV detect this as a regular hard drive when connected via USB?
