Just click the coupon right below the price. Apparently the coupon is only appearing for Prime members, sorry. Applies at checkout.

This is an Adata SX8200 Pro with a heatsink. This is as good as it gets without shelling out much more for a Samsung. Shares that '1-tier-below-Samsung' place with others like a WD Black or Sabrent Rocket 3

Read/Write: 3500/3000 MB/s

It has very good read performance and average write performance. That's what makes it a "game" drive.

The coupon may be targeted or only for Prime accounts. Do you have a Prime membership?

The post doesn't state the exclusion or exclusivity though

I know. But not the OP's fault. The item page doesn't say anything about it, so no way the OP could have known unless they checked the deal via incognito or on a non-Prime account.

I assume you don't have Prime then? (our QA team is trying to figure out if it's a Prime only coupon or just targeted in general even if not prime). One of our QA team will add a note to the OP that the coupon is probably targeted

3GB/s write is not average and actually on the higher end for PCIe x4 gen3 nvme drives.

Prime user here and I see the $8 off coupon with a check box. This is a pretty good price with heatsink. I got in on the WD SN750 Black 1TB with heatsink for $139 a month ago and that was pretty good.

The sequential write speed is relatively lower. Still a good deal?

Amazon might as well cancel their BF in X month scheme.. since they made a killing in overpriced PPE and Sanitizers/related medical equipment.

Go read some reviews. The advertised speed on flash memory are basically made up.

So benchmark numbers are made up? Can you link the articles stating this?

Seq write is around 1.75gbps instead of the 3 advertised here. It's what EVERY reviews of this nvme says.
In fact, outside of the top 2 Samsung nvme and WD black, every nvme pretty much slow down to that speed once the write cache is full. That's common knowledge in any tech circle.

Hmm, the numbers I'm seeing seem okay with adata. https://www.tomshardware.com/revi...957-2.html
