[Amazon Canada] Silicon Power 512GB-SSD 3D NAND SATA III 2.5" 7mm Internal Solid State Drive - $69.99

Probably a good deal for those looking for SSD for their ultra-thin laptops.

Good for very tight budgets, yes, but wouldn't make more sense to get the 1TB for $124.00?

It is still not much of an expense and you get better GBs/$ ratio.

Still, thank you for the finding!

"The advanced SLC Cache Technology allows performance boost and longer lifespan". LMFAO

These drives are absolute trash, since they don't have DDR cache. Avoid like the plague. Frequently (and lazily) shilled at this same regular price by the same handful of accounts using the same wording in their posts (sigh).

You can get much better & cheaper drives with DDR cache. Try the KingDians which are $66.99 for 480GB with 512MB DDR cache.

$66.99 for 480gb vs $69.99 for 512gb is NOT "much cheaper"

That's a bit extreme. It's still a decent drive for game storage and the like.

I had 4 for 4 of sp branded drives fail on me. In the past . Never again. It's great for gaming until the drives just stop working. 3 of the 4 didn't even make it through the first year. 2 in my systems one in another. 4th drive lasted 14months with little to no use in a laptop . So that's a 100% fail rate for their products for me

Damn, that's pretty unlucky. I see why you'd say that now. I'd probably feel the same way.

bought 2 of them and used cache about 3 months ago. One of the drives failed within 2 weeks, with non-existent warranty/rma support.
spend your money on something more reliable and consistent

Where can you get the 1 TB for $84.99? Need one for that price.
Ask me about the AMEX Air Miles Reserve Credit Card. A much better way to redeem your Dream Air Miles.
