A 2TB SSD for $286! I guess the normal price for these is about $300 so this isn't that crazy but I'm impressed at how cheap these drives are.

Was thinking the same. It's nice to see SSD's dropping in price.

I still don't trust them because I don't care what the specifications say, every single one I have used has died within a year (I am a developer and tend to hammer drives). Warranties suck too because the replacements often only have 30-90 days warranty so you really you only get one replacement even though the new drives die just as quick as the old ones. I keep trying them though because while they may be unreliable, once you get used to the speed and silence it's hard to go back. I keep backups on regular spinning drives.
I've never had problems with any ssd. Have you tried using them in a different system?

I've used lots of different systems with SSD's. High quality power supplies, etc. The problem is the way I use them. Editing source, compiling, VM's, data mining, databases, running 24/7, etc. really stresses them. I haven't tried anything bigger than 512GB and the newer bigger drives have been lasting longer than the old ones.

If these 2+TB SSD's get a little cheaper it would be awesome to move a few of my 4+TB databases to them. They would be so fast! That's why this drive caught my attention.

The same seller sold these drives through Rakuten for $257 few days back.
No doubt this drive is cheap, but few things you should know before committing to it:

--It does not come in retail packaging, hence no manufacturer's warranty, already verified this info too, seller claims warranty through their store and I say "Good Luck".
--These drives made for wholesale and OEMs.
--But they are brand new according to few reports and my research, can be verified with any disk software.
--Do you really need warranty for these SSD drives? TBH, No, they are very reliable and won't just go bad, if it works for first few days and it passes all tests, then you should be good to go. If you are just storing static files and games, using as a boot drive, then it will serve you for years come and it will become obsolete before it breaks down.


Would I but this SSD? No, cause I use SSDs mainly for torrents, too many write and erase cycles involved, hence I need a peace of mind and some coverage with good drive endurance, like Samsung PRO lines with MLC SSD.

Hope it was helpful!!!

I wonder which SSDs you have used that they kept failing every year? I always use Samsung EVO or Pro lines and I hammer my SSDs too (few hundred gigs a day of writing), I always look for endurance rating, don't care about the coverage duration to be honest.

The guy's full of poop. The only two of those actions that can stress a SSD are VMs and databases. VMs only stress it if you use it in the stupidest way possible (i.e. to the point of thrashing). Databases only stress it if you are competent enough to set them up in the first place, which this guy isn't.

No matter how pro you are, editing and compiling source is orders of magnitude easier on a disk drive than the nightly virus scan windows defaults its users into without causing significant wear, or the man-db poopstain that runs at the end of any apt-get install command.

Damn I just spent $210 on a 1tb Samsung Evo 860. 2tb for only $76 more sounds better.

I have a "factory reconditioned" 480gb ssd I've been using since 2015, still going strong. What brands have you been using?

No dont listen to this guy. It's like putting in an LS1 engine inside of a car and having a stock Corvette with an LS1 and saying the Corvettes LS1 is better than your LS1. The engine doesn't change lol. Just like the type of NAND is used. Other things might affect durability and longevity but it wont be significant. Speed is another matter since it has nothing to do with what this talk is about.

Additionally like anything. There's also the chance that you get a lemon but that is an outlier.

Just go look up TLC durability then go to the specific drive and look at its durability specifics then compare it to a top end TLC durability specifics.

These are OEM drives. They run hotter than consumer drives by 5-7c. That is all that would lower its durability over its lifetime without taking in outside forces into consideration.

You are telling this to a guy who has been using SSDs for torrenting since 2011? You do know what torrent does to your NAND drive, right? IDK why you are comparing oranges to asteroids, It's my opinion and I am expressing it, we are not car mechanics here and this is not a Nascar, stay away from my comments!!!

Your name tells everything about you, no self opinion, but too quick to judge and bash others!!!

All I talked was endurance and durability, aka TBW and I also took my time and warned others what to expect from these drives base on my own experience and research.

Thank you for zero input and now, go change the oil!!!
