Is this is as good as it gets storage/$? Or should I wait for BF?

Building a PC for a friend, no need for anything fancy on SSD.
Before anyone comments "this isn't a good buy because controller yadayada" you aren't looking at the same metrics, FPS per $
Sure each component can be optimized for specs within but all parts don't yield the same returns on FPS/$

$600 (loose) budget with half of it going to an RX 5700 HAHAHA such a good gaming build imo this is a beast PC

Great price op! I'm going to either replace an old PS3 internal hard drive, or use it as external/usb3 with xb1x. Not sure yet. Either way a cheap SSD should beat a spinner for my use case. Thanks!

It's great to see this SSD on sale again. I bought 4x during a previous deal for giggles and put them in my spare 4 Bay Nas in order to put it through the ringer.

These ssd's are actually really good and still going strong after a ton of miles on them. Highly recommended for a well priced ssd.

Note: This SSD is actually using quality components (SKHynix) and are not the typical low end chinese ssd's with budget parts. For the price, this is as good as it gets for your dollar without sacrificing quality.

5 year warranty too, which is really impressive for this well priced ssd.

No DRAM, so unless you need one right now, Id hold off and get an MX500 for a few bucks more (I got mine for less than $50).

yep. Also this drives controller does not allow any software on the market to read total writes...Would you drive your kids around in a car without the fuel gage working?

Is the SKHynix NAND 3D or planar NAND? Thanks.

No DRAM means the controller will use NAND to cache. How good the firmware algorithm is a question. If this were a Toshiba SSD (they don't use DRAM and Toshiba invented NAND), I'll have 100% confidence, but it is not a Toshiba.

It became difficult to determine the controller in cheap SSDs some time ago but someone made a pretty good one which became the cheap one of choice and everyone assumed that was the one being used in cheap SSDs and that was good enough for the price.

What is s cheap SSD with DRAM? I thought the Hyundai and the Inland Professional had it, but they don't. I'm willing to pay a few more bucks for DRAM which is what I'm hearing is the difference in price.

I found an article on Redit that the 860 Evo was about the same price as the Inland at the time of the article. That's certainly not the case now.

Thanks

Guys,

Controller is only one part of the equation. You also want to know what NAND is used. At this point, the industry has moved to 3D TLC NAND. If a SSD still uses planar NAND in this day and age, stay away from it.

How do you check seller ratings on Rakuten? I clicked through to their info but I don't see anything about the volume of their sales, rewviews, or etc.

What's good between $20 and $40?
